  • Publication number: 20240182258
    Abstract: A sheet folding apparatus includes a conveyor, a first folding roller, a second folding roller, a third folding roller, a guide, a motor, and a driving force transmission mechanism. The motor causes the second folding roller to perform either forward rotation in which the second folding roller rotates to convey a sheet on a main conveying path in a conveying direction and to convey the sheet on a reflux conveying path from a joining position toward a branching position or backward rotation in a direction opposite to the forward rotation. The driving force transmission mechanism rotates the guide toward a first posture from a second posture in conjunction with the forward rotation of the second folding roller and rotates the guide from the first posture toward the second posture in conjunction with the backward rotation of the second folding roller.

    Abstract: To improve a coil component having a structure in which a coil part is embedded in a magnetic member. A coil component includes a coil part embedded in the magnetic members and terminal electrodes each made of a conductive paste. Conductor layers constituting the coil part respectively have coil conductor patterns and electrode patterns exposed from a mounting surface. The terminal electrode has an area provided at a position covering the electrode patterns on the mounting surface and areas provided at positions not covering the electrode patterns on the mounting surface. A part of the area constitutes a protruding part protruding in the x-direction. The terminal electrode thus has the protruding part, thereby making misalignment of mounting position in the z-direction less likely to occur at the time of mounting.
