  • Publication number: 20040033421
    Abstract: A battery with an excellent discharge load characteristic and low temperature discharge characteristic is provided. The battery comprises a wound electrode where a strip-shaped positive electrode and a strip-shaped negative electrode are wound with a separator (23) therebetween which is impregnated with an electrolyte. The separator (23) includes a macroporous film (23a) having an average pore size of 0.15 &mgr;m or less and an average ratio of a shortest internal diameter (DS) to a longest internal diameter (DL) in a pore not less than 0.4 nor more than 1.0. This can prevent clogging of macropores (23b) and improve electrolyte permeability, ionic permeability, and electrolyte retention of the separator (23). Therefore, the excellent discharge load characteristic and low temperature discharge characteristic can be obtained.

  • Patent number: 5417542
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for carrying a workpiece for improving efficiency in a workpiece carrying operation. In the apparatus, a moving member having a workpiece holding member is driven with a linear motion in a horizontal plane along a carrier passage, and the workpiece holding member is driven with a revolutional motion in a vertical plane around a revolution axis displaced from a center of the workpiece holding member, while the workpiece holding member maintains an orientation in which a holder holding the workpiece points downwards. The holder of the workplece holding member is controlled to sequentially carry out holding of the workpiece and releasing of the workpiece at lowest positions of the workpiece holding member in the revolutional motion, so as to realize a continuous workpiece carrying operation.

  • Patent number: 5307558
    Abstract: In a parts mounting apparatus, suction nozzles are mounted on a rotating carrier driven by a motor. With rotation of the rotating carrier, parts are sucked by the nozzles at a feed station and carried to a mounting station where the parts such as electronic parts are mounted on substrates, for example. A counter counts output pulses from an encoder mounted in the motor driving the rotating carrier. A microcomputer determines the rotational speed and rotational position of the rotating carrier from the count value of the counter. Based on the result of the determination, the microcomputer calculates a timing for delivering a signal for switching the nozzles between two different pneumatic states.

  • Patent number: 5287616
    Abstract: A work mounting apparatus or component mounting apparatus according to the present invention comprises a lower drum of a rotating drum, a head unit arranged on the outer periphery of the lower drum, a circular work head or component head attached to the head unit, and a suction nozzle protruding from the outer peripheral surface of the work head toward a workbench. While the lower drum is rotating, the suction nozzle of the work head repeats cycloid motion along the workbench with its posture kept fixed with respect to the workbench. While repeating the cycloid motion, the nozzle receives a work or component, such as an electronic component from a work feeder of the workbench by suction, and mounts the work on a printed board on the workbench.
