  • Patent number: 11932770
    Abstract: A method for producing a resin sintered body 1 by applying an ink 3 to thermoplastic resin powder 2 and sintering the powder, the method including the step of immersing an intermediate resin sintered body 1m, which has an unevenly colored region on the surface thereof and the whole of which has been already sintered, in a surface treatment liquid containing sulfuric acid and chromic anhydride, in which the concentration of chromic anhydride is 300 g/L or more, for 5 minutes or longer. When producing a resin sintered body by sintering thermoplastic resin powder, the surface of the resin sintered body can be evenly and sufficiently colored to an extent required without an unevenly colored region on the surface thereof, and also the surface of the resin sintered body can have a good appearance and smoothness.

  • Publication number: 20230110462
    Abstract: A phosphor wheel unit includes a phosphor wheel that converts incident light into fluorescent light and emits the fluorescent light, a first heat exchanger having a plurality of fin members that is arranged and an airflow inlet surface through which an airflow generated by rotation of the phosphor wheel partially or entirely flows in, and a regulating member that regulates a direction of the airflow. The direction of the airflow regulated by the regulating member and a direction perpendicular to a rotation shaft of the phosphor wheel form an angle of between 0 degrees and 45 degrees on a surface perpendicular to an extending direction of a base material of the phosphor wheel. The airflow inlet surface is disposed intercepting the direction of the airflow regulated by the regulating member. The first heat exchanger cools a gas forming the airflow and the cooled gas returns to the phosphor wheel.
