  • Publication number: 20180036870
    Abstract: A driving machine capable of performing replenishment of air in a pneumatic chamber includes: a housing; a cylinder provided within the housing; a pneumatic chamber spatially connected to the cylinder; a piston reciprocally movably provided in the cylinder; a blade attached to the piston and striking a stopper; and a moving mechanism reducing an internal volume of either the pneumatic chamber or the cylinder by a motor, and the driving machine drives the stopper by repulsive force of compressed air. The driving machine has a pressure accumulating mode in which the pneumatic chamber is pressurized by the motor from a state where the pneumatic chamber communicates with outside, and a striking mode in which the piston is moved by the motor from a bottom dead point to a top dead point in the cylinder and then from the top dead point toward the bottom dead point, thereby driving the stopper.

  • Publication number: 20180016964
    Abstract: An engine is configured so that a muffler is affixed to the exhaust opening of the cylinder, and the air-cooled cylinder is cooled by a cooling fan. The engine is provided with a muffler cover for covering the muffler, and exhaust gas is discharged inside the muffler cover along the wall surface of the muffler. A second cooling air is combined with the exhaust gas flow from the upstream side thereof to be parallel thereto, and a first cooling air having been caused to flow under the muffler is caused to perpendicularly impinge against the exhaust gas flow on the downstream side thereof. Thus, the cooling airs are combined inside the muffler cover with the exhaust gas flow, and as a result the temperature of the exhaust gas is sufficiently reduced at the time when the exhaust gas is discharged from the opening of the muffler cover to the outside.

  • Publication number: 20180016956
    Abstract: The temperature of exhaust gas discharged from a compact air-cooled engine used as a power source for an engine-driven working machine is reduced. An engine has a muffler mounted directly to the exhaust opening of the cylinder, and a resin muffler cover covering the muffler. An exhaust gas restriction member is provided to a wall surface of the muffler, and two exhaust passages serving as outlets for exhaust gas are formed in the exhaust gas restriction member. The exhaust passages are arranged independent of each other, and the streams of discharged exhaust gas are discharged to be slightly separated from each other as the streams flow away from the exhaust openings. The separated streams of discharged exhaust gas form a negative pressure space between the streams promoting the introduction of a cooling air stream into the negative pressure portion. Thus, the temperature of the exhaust gas can be reduced.

  • Patent number: 9869327
    Abstract: A brushless motor is incorporated in one of divided constituent members of a motor casing which is disassembled, and then, the divided constituent members of the motor casing which is disassembled are connected to each other into the motor casing assembled with mgachine screws screwed into machine screw holes. As this occurs, when a wiring of the brushless motor is held by a first stationary blade portion and a second stationary blade portion, the wiring is allowed to lead to an outside of an outer cylindrical portion through a gap defined between the first stationary blade portion and the second stationary blade portion.

  • Publication number: 20170341213
    Abstract: In order to provide an electric tool with good operability that can extend the life of and suppress breakage of a switching element for controlling energization of a brushless motor, a control unit (50), after an operation switch (5) is turned off, does not immediately turn off an inverter circuit (43) (does not set the duty of a PWM signal to 0), and instead normally operates the inverter circuit (43) with a low-duty PWM signal and waits until a rotation speed of a brushless motor (6) reaches a predetermined rotation speed or less to turn off the inverter circuit (43) (to set the duty of the PWM signal to 0).
