  • Publication number: 20140178600
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a coating method and a coating device. The coating method includes: heating a to-be-coated area of a to-be-coated member; and coating the heated to-be-coated area of the to-be-coated member. Therefore, by pre-heating the to-be-coated area of the to-be-coated member, the temperature of the to-be-coated area of the to-be-coated member is increased to reduce the temperature difference between the to-be-coated area of the to-be-coated member and the coating air flow, which prevents the mixture contained in the coating air flow from generating crystalline material on the to-be-coated area of the to-be-coated member. Thus, the coating layer can be stuck to the to-be-coated area directly and tightly without block from the crystalline material located therebetween, and is prevented from falling off easily to improve the success rate and stability of the coating operation.

In the method, magnet material is milled into magnet powder, and the magnet powder and a binder are mixed to obtain a mixture including 1 to 40 wt % of the binder therein. Next, by high precision coating of a substrate with the mixture, a green sheet is obtained at thickness precision within a margin of error of plus or minus 5% with reference to a designed value. Thereafter, the green sheet is held for predetermined time at binder decomposition temperature in non-oxidizing atmosphere, whereby depolymerization reaction or the like changes the binder into monomer and thus removes the binder. The green sheet with the binder removed therefrom undergoes pressure sintering such as SPS method so as to obtain a permanent magnet 1.

  • Publication number: 20030183171
    Abstract: A new method and apparatus for avoiding contamination of films deposited in layered depositions, such as Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) and other sequential chemical vapor deposition (CVD) processes, is taught, wherein CVD-deposited contamination of ALD films is prevented by use of a pre-reaction chamber that effectively causes otherwise-contaminating gaseous constituents to deposit on wall elements of gas-delivery apparatus prior to entering the ALD chamber.

  • Patent number: 6063453
    Abstract: An electron-emitting device having an electroconductive film including an electron-emitting region and arranged between a pair of electrodes is manufactured by forming an electroconductive film on a substrate and producing an electron-emitting region in the electroconductive film. The electroconductive film is formed on the substrate by heating the substrate in an atmosphere containing a gasified organic metal compound to a temperature higher than the decomposition of the gasified organic metal compound.

  • Patent number: 6010754
    Abstract: A thermal head producing method in which dispersion of resistance values of heating resistors in each thermal head and dispersion of the resistance values of the heating resistors per dot unit are made uniform to improve printing quality. A glaze layer is formed on a substrate and a heating resistor composed of a thin film resistor material of a mixed composition of a high melting point metal and an insulating material is formed on the glaze layer. First and second pattern conductors for providing common and separate electrodes are formed on the heating resistor and, after a protective film is formed to cover the first and second pattern conductors and the heating resistor, the heating resistor is heated so as to be a higher temperature than a dot temperature required for a printing operation.
