  • Patent number: 10632562
    Abstract: A sliding member integrated with a guide pin is inserted into a guide hole of an electrode main body. An elastic ring is integrated with the guide pin under a state in which the guide pin passes through the elastic ring. A portion of the sliding member has a pressurizing end surface configured to press the elastic ring against an inner end surface of the guide hole. When the pressurizing end surface presses the elastic ring against the inner end surface, flow of the cooling air is interrupted. When the elastic ring is away from the inner end surface, the cooling air is allowed to flow.

  • Patent number: 9189485
    Abstract: A predicted-failure-evidence diagnosing section for equipment that does not depend on the equipment and does not require knowledge of the equipment is provided. On the basis of a result of a predicted-abnormality-evidence diagnosis carried out by this section on time-series data gathered from the equipment, an allowable error used for compressing the gathered data can be set and managed in order to compress the data if the result of the diagnosis is normal or to restrict the compression of the data during a period in which an evidence of a predicted abnormality is detected. Thus, the amount of data stored in a memory can be reduced.
