Abstract: The present invention pertains to a stator manufacturing method and a device therefor. All of segments are twisted in order to obtain a stator, the linear sections of the segments being inserted into slots in a stator core. The segments on the inner peripheral side are subsequently twisted after the segments on the outer peripheral side are untwisted. In order to achieve this, e.g., a fourth spindle that is positioned on the outermost peripheral side and is one of the first through fourth spindles for twisting the segments is disconnected from a fourth motor and brought to a non-rotatable state. The following is then performed in sequence: the third spindle is disconnected from a third motor and twisted, and the second spindle is disconnected from the second motor and twisted.

Abstract: A laminated composite interior part includes a first member made of synthetic resin and having a mating surface; and a second member made of elastically deformable synthetic resin and having a plate portion substantially parallel to the mating surface. The plate portion has integrally-formed and interspersed protrusions protruding toward the mating surface. The second member is placed on the first member with distal end portions of the protrusions being in contact with the mating surface. Cushioning properties are provided by elastic deformation of the protrusions, caused as the protrusions' distal end portions are relatively pressed against the mating surface. Flexural rigidity of each of the protrusions against a compressive load is anisotropic about its axis, so that the protrusion is flexurally deformed in one direction about its axis with the distal end portion thereof sliding on the mating surface. Surface roughness of the mating surface is less than 0.20.
