  • Publication number: 20060230045
    Abstract: A service providing device connected to a network provides N network services, where N is an integer equal to 2 or greater. For assigning service names to identify N network services, a first common string commonly used in the service names of the N network services is set. The first common string is then stored in a common string storage unit in the service providing device. A string that includes an individual string individually set for each of the N network services and the first common string stored in the common string storage unit is assigned to each of the N network services as the service name.

  • Patent number: 6915895
    Abstract: An air conveyer receives an uppermost container group elevated by a lift device and transporting the container group horizontally. A pushing device is provided for pushing the uppermost container group onto the adjacent airflow conveyer by contacting the container group at one side thereof and moving horizontally toward the other side. A forward-fall preventive device is provided to be switchable between a closed state for lying forwardly in a pushing direction of the container group, as the pushing device moves horizontally, to be capable of preventing a forward fall of containers, and an open state for opening a forward position in the pushing direction of the container group when the container group rides the airflow conveyer to enable a discharge of the container group. A speed varying mechanism is provided for varying a relative speed between a transport speed of the airflow conveyer and a pushing speed of the pushing device.
