  • Patent number: 11866819
    Abstract: The inventive concept provides a method for treating a surface of an object to be treated, in which a part provided and contaminated in an apparatus for treatment of a substrate such as a wafer serves as the object to be treated. In an embodiment, the surface treatment method includes forming a vacuum in an atmosphere in which the object is provided and cleaning the surface of the object by collision of first particles with contaminants on the surface of the object at supersonic speed.

  • Patent number: 11679336
    Abstract: A transformable toy transformable so as to be coupled to a model toy and a toy set including the model toy and the transformable toy are provided. The transformable toy includes a transformable body that is transformable into a first state of being independent from the model toy and a second state of partially covering the model toy and being releasably coupled to the model toy. The transformable body incudes a frame portion and a transformation portion. The frame portion partially covers the model toy in the second state of the transformable body. The transformation portion is coupled to the frame portion so as to be rotatable about a corresponding rotation axis. The transformation portion is rotated about the corresponding rotation axis with respect to the frame portion for transformation of the transformable body from one of the first and second states to the other.

  • Publication number: 20230040167
    Abstract: Disclosed are a method of heat treating a membrane electrode assembly, in which a first membrane electrode assembly or the like is positioned between a first member and a second member and heat treatment is performed as at least one of the first member and the second member being a heating member, and also in which variation in the temperature of the membrane electrode assembly at different roll positions is decreased and interfacial bonding between the layers in the membrane electrode assembly is enhanced. Thus, the quality of the membrane electrode assembly, such as the durability and performance thereof, may be improved, the yield thereof may be increased, and the amount of heat treatment may be efficiently increased, thereby reducing costs through mass heat treatment and decreasing the rate of processing of the membrane electrode assembly.

  • Patent number: 10663060
    Abstract: A shift lever mechanism has a neutral (N) range shift lock, the shift lever mechanism configured such that when shifting from a drive (D) range to a park (P) range, rotation of a shift lever is confined to the N range, and then, when a shift condition to the P range is satisfied, the shift lever is rotated to allow shifting to the P range, thereby preventing damage to a parking mechanism due to driver error when shifting to the P range.
