  • Publication number: 20190356207
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a linear motor and a compressor which are effective against a non-fixed structure in which end portions of a resonant spring are not fixed and are capable of restraining loads in an up-down direction and a left-right direction which act on a slider. A linear motor includes a slider (2) which is driven in a first direction, a resonance spring (400) which is capable of vibrating in the first direction, and a permanent magnet (210) which is provided at the slider (2) and is magnetized in a second direction perpendicular to the first direction. The linear motor includes a bearing (480) that is movable against both forces of a force in the second direction and a force in a third direction perpendicular to the first direction and the second direction, and an elastic-body support member (450) which connects the resonant spring (400) and the bearing (480) to each other.

  • Patent number: 10455098
    Abstract: In an image processing system, a multifunction printer carries out image reading or printing in accordance with processing execution condition information stored in a storage apparatus of a host PC. A storage apparatus of a client PC stores processing execution condition information. In a case where the client PC is connected to the host PC via the network, a control apparatus transmits the processing execution condition information stored in the storage apparatus to the host PC. The host PC stores the received processing execution condition information in the storage apparatus.

  • Patent number: 10347105
    Abstract: A wireless, proximity-based security system for securing or tracking a valuable object. The system includes a base station and a plurality of security fobs. The security fobs are tracked via an ultra-wideband transceiver relative to an outer perimeter. An administrator fob pairs each of the security fobs with the base station. An audible alarm emits from base and/or the fobs when the location of the security fob is detected to be beyond the outer perimeter. A haptic alarm emits from fob when the location of the security fob is detected to be beyond a sub-perimeter.

  • Publication number: 20190193901
    Abstract: A storage container assembly includes a container having an opening and a lid for covering the opening. The lid includes a top lid, a button, a cam, a base, a lower plate and a gasket. The button is moveable in a first axial direction with respect to the top lid between a projected position and a depressed position. The cam is configured to cooperate with the button such that the button maintains the depressed position when moved from the projected position to the depressed position, and the button remains in the depressed position until pressed again while in the depressed position. The lower plate is connected with the top lid. The gasket is moveable between a contracted state and an expanded state in response to alternate actuations of the button, and the gasket is interposed between the lower plate and the top lid.

  • Patent number: 9961818
    Abstract: An electronic component mounting machine is provided with a film thickness gage. The film thickness gage is provided with measurement sections. The mounting head moves to a position above the storage section and lowers the film thickness gage to cause the film thickness gage to come into contact with the flux film. In the film thickness gage, the measurement sections form measurement marks corresponding to the film thickness in the flux film. The electronic component mounting machine images the measurement marks using a mark camera, and determines the film thickness of the flux film which is actually formed based on imaging data.

  • Patent number: 9858513
    Abstract: Provided is a document file output apparatus capable of appropriately storing each document as different files depending on a difference in printing setting, even when printed materials which are to be different documents for each single sheet or every plurality of sheets are continuously read, a document file output method, and a computer readable medium storing a program for operating a computer as the document file output apparatus. The document file output apparatus each specifies the printing setting of each read printed material, for example, a layout, a difference in a size of the read printed material, presence or absence of framework printing, presence or absence of reduction printing, color/monochromatic setting, or image embedding, from the obtained image data, and outputs by dividing the document files before and after the read printed material in which the printing setting is changed.

  • Publication number: 20160368671
    Abstract: A storage container assembly includes a container and a lid. The lid includes a top lid, a button, a gasket, a gasket pusher, and an arm. The button is moveable in a first axial direction between a projected position in which a top surface of the button is offset from an upper surface of the lid and a depressed position in which the top surface of the button is nearer to the upper surface. The gasket is moveable between a contracted state and an expanded state. The gasket pusher is moveable in a second axial direction, which is transverse to the first axial direction, and pushes the gasket. The arm operatively connects the button with the gasket pusher. Movement of the button from the projected position toward the depressed position results in pivotal movement of the arm and moves the gasket pusher in the second axial direction.
