  • Publication number: 20180065455
    Abstract: An installation base member couples to an opening of an automobile body and has a substantially U-shaped cross section. A hollow seal member includes a first base root and a second base root which extend from an outer-cabin side wall of the installation base member. The hollow seal member in cross section protrudes from the first base root outwardly to a first turning point, curves toward a base root of the flange and connects with the second base root. A side of the first base root includes solid (dense) material. An interval between the first and the second base roots includes sponge material. A first border between the solid (dense) material of the side of the first base root and the sponge material is closer to an exterior of the automobile than the first turning point.

    Abstract: A sealing structure for use on an automobile having a weather strip and an interior member wherein the weather strip includes an installation base member having an inner-cabin side wall, an outer-cabin side wall, a connecting wall and holding lips; and a seal member. The installation base member couples to a flange vertically formed along a peripheral edge of an opening corresponding to a door. The seal member is formed on the outer-cabin side wall and makes elastic contact with a door glass. The interior member is provided on an inner-cabin side of the inner-cabin side wall. An end of the interior member extends toward the connecting wall. A projection is formed on an outer circumference of a connecting part between the outer-cabin side wall and the connecting wall. The projection extends in an internal circumferential direction and covers the end of the interior member from an outer-cabin side.

  • Publication number: 20150360547
    Abstract: First and second fins extending toward a second-closing door are provided at an upper end of a side-edge seal of a first-closing door of a double door of a vehicle. When the first-closing door is closed, the first fin overlaps the body-side seal, and the second fin overlaps an outer surface of the vehicle body outside the body-side seal. When the second-closing door is closed, an inner surface of the second-closing door abuts on the body-side seal to run on the side-edge seal from the first fin. A seal portion of the second-closing door abuts on the outer surface of the vehicle body outside the body-side seal to run on the side-edge seal from the second fin. The first and second fins are deformed independently from each other.

  • Publication number: 20150096630
    Abstract: An electromagnetic valve according to one embodiment includes a driven member configured such that a piston and a valve element are vertically coupled with each other and configured such that a pilot passage runs through the driven member. Here, the piston separates a high-pressure chamber from a back pressure chamber. The valve element opens and closes a main valve by moving toward and away from a valve hole. The pilot passage communicates between a low-pressure chamber and the back pressure chamber. A communicating path, through which the high-pressure chamber and the back pressure chamber communicate with each other, is formed in the piston. The communicating path is formed such that an orifice, which is open to the back pressure chamber, and a communication hole, having a larger cross section than that of the orifice, are vertically connected with each other. The orifice is located above the communication hole.
