  • Patent number: 9643893
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a joint body of a ceramic body and a metal body includes a step of joining them together by passing a current to an abutment surface between them. The joining step includes a step of heating up the abutment surface to a temperature T1 within a temperature range between (Tr-220)° C. and (Tr-50)° C. in a period longer than 10 seconds, Tr being a recrystallization temperature of the metal body, a step of heating the abutment surface for a period longer than 5 seconds at a temperature T2 within a temperature range between Tm×0.3° C. and Tm×0.45° C., Tm being a melting point of the metal body, and a step of heating the abutment surface for a period longer than 3 seconds at a heating temperature higher than Tm×0.48° C. and lower than Tm×0.6° C.

  • Patent number: 9317199
    Abstract: A control apparatus includes: an operation reception unit receiving a reference setting operation, and a position designation operation after the reference setting operation, that are input by a user touching an input unit provided on a display surface of a display unit; a reference position setting unit setting a reference position at a position shifted toward a periphery of the input unit from the position of the reference setting operation on the input unit; and a display control unit setting, depending on the reference position and the position of the position designation operation, a display position of a pointer for selecting a position on the display unit.

  • Patent number: 8959400
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and computer system for collecting errors which occur while a user uses a computer includes collecting log information on an operating environment including an operating procedure from a computing device associated with a user; accumulating the collected log information; identifying, from the log information, a second operating procedure similar to the operating procedure, wherein the second operating procedure had an error occur and no longer includes the error, in response to receiving the log information corresponding to the operating procedure in which the error occurs; and providing the user with the second operating procedure included in the searched log information.

  • Patent number: 4317183
    Abstract: An unused program number-indicating system for a small program type electronic calculator, wherein input program data are all stored in a program data memory. A detection circuit detects a program number corresponding to the program data read out of the program data memory, and used and/or unused program numbers are displayed in the prescribed form by control circuits.

  • Patent number: 4301511
    Abstract: A programmable calculator with a device for controlling the reading of program data comprises an input section including at least one key for designating program data, a memory section for storing the program data, a program data reading section for reading the program data from the memory section, and a display section for displaying the program data. The apparatus further comprises a detecting section for detecting that the key has been depressed for a time longer than a predetermined one. When the detecting section produces an output signal, the program data reading section is so controlled as to continuously read the program data from the memory section.
