  • Patent number: 11305522
    Abstract: A screen printing method of the present disclosure includes: a step of performing printing of a first viscous fluid through a screen on the first circuit board using a first squeegee and a first holding member; and a step of performing printing of a second viscous fluid through the screen on the second circuit board using a second squeegee and a second holding member. As described above, in the printing of the first viscous fluid on the first circuit board and the printing of the second viscous fluid on the second circuit board, squeegees and holding members different from each other are used, and thus, the first viscous fluid and the second viscous fluid do not mix with each other. As a result, it is possible to perform printing of different types of viscous fluids on the first circuit board and the second circuit board.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for painting, which might be used to paint the soil in a golf hole are provided. A spraying device can comprise a first masking apparatus, a second masking apparatus coupled to the first and a paint dispersing device, between the first and second masking apparatus. The paint may disperse from a single nozzle that can include multiple individual exit points for the spray. In another embodiment, the single nozzle includes an exit point and a flat or curved plate to direct the spray. Alternatively, the paint dispersing apparatus may comprise multiple nozzles. The nozzles may be provided with paint using tubes connecting from a paint source, such as an aerosol paint can, to each nozzle. The first masking apparatus can be a golf cup mask and the second masking apparatus can be a putting green mask.

  • Patent number: 8720369
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the application of surface coatings to treated aluminum articles utilized on aircraft, and more particularly to a system for masking portions of aluminum aircraft wheel and brake components for application of surface coatings to reduce or prevent wear and/or corrosion to the aluminum article. The system may be utilized for new aluminum aircraft components as well as aircraft components that have been subjected to non-destructive testing. The masking components are constructed and arranged to cooperate with portions of the aluminum component in a sequential manner to allow for application of multiple layers of primer and/or topcoat without removal of prior masking components so that a coated component complies with the manufacturer's written requirements for that component.

  • Patent number: 8709837
    Abstract: A deposition apparatus includes: a deposition source including a spray nozzle linearly arranged in a first direction and discharging a deposition material; and a pair of angle control members disposed at both sides of the deposition source and controlling a discharging direction angle of the deposition material. Each angle control member includes a rotation axis parallel to the first direction, and a plurality of shielding plates installed about the rotation axis and separated from each other by a predetermined interval around the rotation axis. Although the deposition angle is changed according to the increasing of the process time, the deposition angle is compensated to form a uniform thin film. Also, the organic thin film may be uniformly deposited through each pixel of an organic light emitting diode (OLED) display, thereby increasing luminance uniformity for each pixel.

    Abstract: With abluminal side of a stent masked, the luminal side of the stent is selectively coated with a substance, such as an anti-coagulant, a platelet inhibitor and/or a pro-healing substance. The stent can be masked by inserting it into a rigid mandrel chamber or by compressing a masking sleeve onto the outer side of the stent. A spray nozzle inserted into the masked stent spray coats the substance onto the luminal side. The sprayed coating can be cured onto the stent such as by inserting an electrical-resistance heater bar into the stent.
