Image Number 2 for United States Patent #6623336.
When electric elements are formed on a ceramic bar or the like, the positional displacement of the respective elements occurs due to a division exposing process or the like. An object of the present invention is to provide a device and a method which unify the non-polished portion of the respective elements by conducting polishing while a complicated deformation or the like is given to the ceramic bar. To achieve this object, the ceramic bar or like is held by using a jig, and a plurality of loads are applied to portions of the jig where the ceramic bar or the like is held, to thereby deform the ceramic bar or the like and polish the element in that state. In this situation the load applied points are disposed so as to avoid the boundaries of the division exposure.
