  • Patent number: 7830109
    Abstract: A movable member is moved in a preset direction in a linear motor. A characteristic-change position-detecting unit detects a position where the magnetic characteristic of the magnets has abruptly changed. The position detected is used as an origin-setting reference position. A reference position for the absolute position of the magnetic linear encoder is set based on the reference position.

  • Patent number: 7786631
    Abstract: A position-data converter and a motor-drive control device are connected. The position-data converter receives two-phase, sine-wave analog signals da and db from two first magnetic detectors, respectively, and converts these signals da and db to position data. On receiving a positioning instruction, the motor-drive control device calculates the value of current, from the current position signal generated by the position-data converter. The permanent magnets incorporated in a linear motor are used as components of a linear scale, as well.

  • Publication number: 20070017699
    Abstract: A pair of through holes are formed in a circuit board, and a silver paste filled up in the through holes connects lands formed on a front surface and a rear surface of the circuit board, respectively to each other. When the silver paste is solidified, the silver paste bulges curvedly from the front and rear surfaces of the circuit board and forms a bump. A surface of the bump is covered with an overcoat. An electronic component is brought into contact with the bump, thereby forming a degassing gap between the electronic component and the circuit board. A gas generated during soldering is discharged from the penetrating hole, into which the lead terminal is inserted, to an outside via the gap between the electronic component and the circuit board.

  • Publication number: 20060200332
    Abstract: A pattern design of a film for manufacturing a printed circuit board is made by using a CAD system, and a plurality of types of Gerber data are produced in which a series of various data has been encoded. For example, a pattern film is formed by combining pattern Gerber data with pattern cut Gerber data. Data for check marks whose sizes are different from each other is added as well as pattern data to each Gerber data such that their central coordinates are to be the same. In this manner, a judgment mark having the check marks combined therewith is formed on the pattern film having the items of Gerber data combined therewith.
