  • Patent number: 11476224
    Abstract: In a wiring member, an element connection portion, a plate connection portion, and an upper surface portion are at height positions different from one another. The element connection portion has a through hole, and the plate connection portion has a through hole and a chamfer. The upper surface portion which is not connected to another portion, has projections asymmetrically disposed on both side surfaces thereof. Owing to these features, the type, the orientation, and the front and the back of the wiring member can be easily distinguished. Accordingly, it is possible to prevent incorrect assembling of the wiring member in a semiconductor module.

  • Patent number: 11402024
    Abstract: A gate valve includes a valve plate and a valve rod that are detachably connected along a rod axis by screwing a connecting screw in a screw hole formed at an end of a valve rod through a screw insertion hole formed in the valve plate. The valve plate includes a contact portion that is in contact with the connecting screw. When the connecting screw is loosened to detach the valve plate from the valve rod, the valve plate is displaced along the rod axis together with the connecting screw via the contact portion to move to a valve-plate detaching position at which the connecting screw comes completely out of the screw hole of the valve rod. Accordingly, the valve plate can be detached from the valve rod easily and reliably even if the valve rod is tightly inserted in the valve plate mounting hole.
