  • Patent number: 10744651
    Abstract: A mirror replacement device includes a gripping mechanism to grip a segment mirror, a fine drive mechanism to change a position and a posture of the gripping mechanism, a lift mechanism for the segment mirror, a first detector to detect a relative position and a relative posture between a comparison object and a target object, a second detector to detect a bend of the fine drive mechanism, and a mirror replacement controller to replace the segment mirror based on detection signals output from the above-mentioned detectors. The controller determines whether the first detector can successfully perform a measurement. When it is determined that the measurement can be successfully performed, the control is performed based on the detection signal output from the first detector. When it is determined that the measurement cannot be successfully performed, the control is performed based on the detection signal output from the second detector.

  • Publication number: 20080123105
    Abstract: A grating alignment device performs alignment of two or more plane gratings so as to eliminate an angular misalignment and a phase misalignment which are caused between respective diffracted light beams generated when incident light is diffracted by the plane gratings. Specifically, alignment is performed by appropriately adjusting an angle A, an angle B, an angle C, a coordinate Z, and a coordinate X of the second plane grating so as to eliminate at least one of the angular misalignment and the phase misalignment which are caused between the respective diffracted light beams generated when incident light is diffracted by the first plane grating and the second plane grating.

  • Patent number: 5896228
    Abstract: Tilting motion of an auxiliary mirror and a dynamically compensating balancer is separated into a component in which they tiltably move with the same phase and a component in which they tiltably move with opposite phases. As these components are processed by using respective stabilizing filters, the auxiliary mirror and the dynamically compensating balancer are allowed to tiltably move with opposite phases.

  • Patent number: 5295380
    Abstract: An edging mill for section rolling has a pair of horizontal rolls, each horizontal roll including a pair of axially spaced horizontal roll segments supported by driven horizontal roll shafts. Eccentric rings are disposed between the two horizontal roll segments making up each horizontal roll and are rotatably mounted on the horizontal roll shaft. The eccentric rings are eccentric to the horizontal rolls. Web-restraining ring rolls each comprise a pair of web-restraining roll segments rotatably fitted over the periphery of the eccentric rings concentrically thereto. A web-restraining ring roll positioning device rotates the eccentric rings. While the horizontal rolls roll the flange edges of the section, the web-restraining ring rolls hold the web of the section therebetween. The position of the web-restraining ring rolls with respect to the horizontal rolls changes with the rotating angle of the eccentric rings.

  • Patent number: 5259229
    Abstract: An apparatus for cooling thin-webbed H-beam steel includes means for forcibly spray cooling the flanges of the H-beam in intermediate and final hot rolling zones. The cooling is based upon tracking information with respect to predetermined positions along the length of the H-beam. A plurality of flow quantity control blocks are disposed in parallel with each having a three way valve having a water supply side port, a nozzle side port, and a water drain port. A plurality of on-off valves connect the nozzle side port to nozzles in a nozzle group to select nozzles based upon the flange width of the H-beam. A variable throttle mechanism maintains pressure loss at the water drain side equal to pressure loss at the nozzle side. Switching of the three way valve of one flow quantity control block can be carried out without affecting other flow quantity control blocks.
