A combustor includes: a combustion liner having a combustion chamber formed therein; a fuel injector mounted to a top portion of the combustion liner, and including a fuel injection member having a plurality of fuel injection annular portions and an air guide member including a plurality of combustion air annular portions that guide air for combustion; and a supplemental burner. The fuel injection annular portions and the combustion air annular portions are arranged concentrically and alternately. The fuel injector injects fuel and air into the combustion chamber. Each of the fuel injection annular portions includes a plurality of fuel injection holes that are open in a radial direction thereof, and each of the combustion air annular portions includes a plurality of air guide groove that are open in an axial direction thereof, and guide the air to the fuel jetted from the fuel injection holes.


The present invention provides a technique which can assemble a mandrel (11) having a substantially cylindrical shape and being dividable into plurality of segments (20, 30), which is used for manufacturing, for example, a fuselage of an aircraft, with high position accuracy and an easy manner. In a segment fastening step, a segment which is a fastened target is fastened to a specified fastening portion which is one of a plurality of fastening portions set along a pair of support rings (40) placed to face each other. In a rotation step, before the segment fastening step, the support rings are rotated so that the specified fastening portion is located at an uppermost portion of the support rings. In the segment fastening step, the segment which is the fastened target is placed between the support rings and lifted vertically up to a height corresponding to the specified fastening portion and then fastened to the support rings.

This system is a data collection system (1) collecting a robot operation-related data/signal from a robot controller (2). The data collection system (1) includes a data collection condition setting unit (6) setting a collection condition of the robot operation-related data/signal from the robot controller (2) and a data storage unit (7, 8, 9) storing the robot operation-related data/signal collected from the robot controller (2). A shared memory (5) inside which the data storage unit (7, 8, 9) and the data collection condition setting unit (6) are formed is formed in a substrate which can be mounted on an expansion slot of the robot controller (2). According to this system, a data collection function can be post-installed to an existing robot controller so as to arbitrarily select and collect various data on the robot operation.

A burner (6) injects a mixture of fuel and air from a base end side far from a combustion chamber (48) toward a distal end side close to the combustion chamber(48). The burner (6) has a fuel passage (76, 78, 80) having a turn-back part (80) turning back and channeling the fuel between the base end side and the distal end side. The burner (6) has a premixed gas passage (82) formed to surround the fuel passage (76, 78, 80). The burner (6) has a fuel introduction part (84) introducing the fuel channeled through the fuel passage (76, 78, 80) into the premixed gas passage (82) from the base end side to the distal end side. The burner (6) has an air supply part (62) supplying the premixed gas passage (82) with air on the base end side. Therefore, the burner (6) is capable of preventing a flashback with a simple structure.
