    Abstract: The present invention provides a kneading method for a fiber-reinforced thermoplastic resin with which dispersibility of reinforcement fibers is enhanced and sufficient reinforcement fibers having a proper fiber length remain, and a fiber-reinforced thermoplastic resin plasticizing device and an extruding machine for carrying out the method. The kneading method comprises supplying a thermoplastic resin and reinforcement fibers into a cylinder of a plasticizing device, and rotating a screw to obtain a fiber-reinforced thermoplastic resin, wherein the size of a clearance between the bore of the cylinder and the screw is made different between an upstream side in the vicinity of a reinforcement fiber loading port and a downstream side, so that the clearance becomes larger from the vicinity of the reinforcement fiber loading port toward the downstream side compared with the upstream side.

  • Publication number: 20070269608
    Abstract: A to-be-repaired damaged part, which occurs in a rotor, is removed and shaped by machining or grinding. The shaped surface, from which the to-be-repaired damaged part is removed in the step, is roughened by a blasting process. A coating is formed on the surface, which is roughened in the step, by a high-velocity flame spray apparatus. The coating, which is formed in the step, is finished by machining or polishing. A defect inspection is performed to check presence/absence of a defect. A dimensional/quality inspection is performed for the part repaired in the step.
