  • Patent number: 10087032
    Abstract: Provided is a coating film transfer tool in which a coating film can be transferred onto a transfer-target surface in a straight manner without the coating film meandering, even if the coating film transfer tool meanders when the coating film is being transferred. The coating film transfer tool includes a feeding portion; a transfer press portion; and a winding portion. The transfer press portion is provided with a transfer head that transfers the coating film, the transfer head can move in a width direction of the transfer tape independent of the feeding portion and the winding portion. The transfer head is provided with a pair of guide walls that use their inner surfaces to restrict movement of the transfer tape. The pair of guide walls and a tip portion of the transfer head can press against the transfer-target surface at the same time.

  • Patent number: 8846182
    Abstract: A transparent conductive substrate capable of readily producing a transparent conductive substrate having a low resistance, a high transmittance and an excellent anti-moire property without using a special apparatus and can be applied to production of various extensive substrates by applying a dispersion solution of metal fine particles capable of forming a self-organized film on a support, drying the obtained coating layer and then subjecting the resulting dried material to heat treatment and/or chemical treatment particles on a support, drying the obtained coating layer and then reducing and precipitating the precursor of the metal fine particles, to previously form a transparent conductive film; and then bonding a substrate to the support to transfer the transparent conductive film onto the substrate and releasing the support from the transparent conductive film.

  • Publication number: 20090266466
    Abstract: A gluing tool, one of the embodiments of a coating film transfer tool, comprises a supply reel 20 which supplies a coating film transfer tape 10 composed of a base tape and a coating film attached thereon, a transfer roller 30, a take-up reel 40 which rolls up the base tape after transfer, a cooperative drive mechanism 50 which is adapted to cause said reels to rotate cooperatively, and a pressing roller 60. When a receiving object P, being pressed onto the transfer roller 30 by the pressing roller 60, is moved, the coating film is transferred only over the range in which the receiving object P was moved. The coating film remained unused can be utilized by rewinding the transfer tape 10.

  • Publication number: 20090050275
    Abstract: A gear 40 is provided coaxially on a supply reel 21a or a take-up reel 21b. A sliding body 50 which comprises a pawl member 52 which engages with the gear 40 in only one direction and a cover member 55 which houses a transfer head 30 and has an opening 56 is held movable by means of an elastic member 60 within a casing main body 20. The cover member 55 is made openable and closable on the sliding body 50. With the cover member 55 in a closed position, a coating film can be transferred on a spot by pressing the cover member 55 against a receiving surface to cause the sliding body 50 to retreat and by pressing the transfer head 30 against the receiving surface which is pushed out of the opening 56 of the cover member 55, and as the cover member 55 is released from pressing and the sliding body 50 is moved forward, the pawl member 52 rotates the supply reel 21a and the take-up reel 21b in a forwarding direction of the transfer tape.

  • Patent number: 7438489
    Abstract: In a coating film transfer tool, a cassette including a tape supply reel, a transfer head, and a take-up reel, is removably disposed in a case. The cassette is approximately symmetric, and can therefore be installed it the case in either of two alternative positions. An alternate action push-button mechanism is provided for extending and withdrawing the transfer head. The cassette includes a mechanism for reducing the inter-axis distance between the supply and take-up reels to prevent, or at least reduce, the increase in tension on the tape as the tape supply is depleted.

  • Patent number: 7325583
    Abstract: In a coating film transfer tool, a tape supply core rotation limiter predetermines the amount of coating film laid down on a receiving surface, to enable erasure of small areas. The permitted rotation of the supply core can be selected from a group of different choices by the use of an adjusting member, releasably engageable with the teeth of a toothed wheel rotatable with the supply core, and movable with the wheel when engaged therewith until engaged with a stop. A spring pawl, engageable with the teeth of the wheel, prevents reverse rotation of the supply core. The adjusting member can be disabled by holding it out of engagement with the toothed wheel, so that the instrument can be used as a conventional coating film transfer tool.
