  • Patent number: 7168731
    Abstract: An airbag apparatus uses an interior panel of an automobile. The interior panel is formed of a multi-layer sheet including a surface layer, an intermediate foam layer, and a base layer. The interior panel has front and rear hinge grooves and left and right fracture grooves for defining a fracture-opening section, and a center fracture groove for dividing the fracture-opening section into front and rear fracture-opening subsections to be split apart from each other in a casement condition. The hinge grooves, the center fracture groove, and the left and right fracture grooves are formed of laser-machined holes which have different depths and do not pass through the surface layer of the interior panel.

  • Patent number: 7165782
    Abstract: An airbag apparatus utilizes an interior panel of a vehicle. The interior panel has a rectangular fracture-opening section defined by at least one hinge groove and one fracture groove formed on an inside surface of the interior panel through irradiation with laser pulses. The fracture groove includes bridge portions and continuous hole portions provided alternately. Each of the bridge portions includes no laser-formed hole and has a thickness equal to the interior panel. Each of the continuous hole portions is composed of first holes for fracture which have a first depth and are successively formed between adjacent bridge portions through irradiation with laser pulses, and second holes which have a second depth smaller than the first depth and are each formed between adjacent first holes, through irradiation with laser pulses, so as to remove an original-thickness portion between the adjacent first holes.

  • Patent number: 7037312
    Abstract: An intraocular-lens insertion device is adapted to deform a deformable intraocular lens into a smaller size and insert the intraocular lens into an eye via an insertion tube. An intraocular-lens guide is provided on the inner surface of the insertion tube. The guide may be a rail-shaped projection or a groove, which extends parallel to a direction along which the intraocular lens is pushed out. A stress release structure is provided on the insertion tube in order to release stress of the intraocular lens produced due to deformation thereof. Moreover, a frictional-resistance increasing structure is provided on the inner surface of the insertion tube to be located in the vicinity of the stress release structure. The frictional-resistance increasing structure increases frictional resistance between the inner surface of the insertion tube and the intraocular lens. The frictional-resistance increasing structure may be a roughened surface which completely or partially covers the inner surface of the insertion tube.

  • Patent number: 7017919
    Abstract: A chuck includes a holder body, a clamp sleeve, and a large number of needle rollers. The holder body has a shank portion, a flange, and a chuck sleeve. The clamp sleeve is fitted onto the outer circumference of the chuck sleeve such that the clamp sleeve is rotatable and axially movable relative to the chuck sleeve. The needle rollers are disposed between the chuck sleeve and the clamp sleeve over the entire circumference. The clamp sleeve is rotated to cause the needle rollers to revolve spirally along the outer circumferential surface of the chuck sleeve while rotating about their own axes in order to decrease and restore the diameter of the chuck sleeve. A thrust member is disposed between the end surface of the flange opposite the shank portion and a corresponding end surface of the clamp sleeve.
