  • Patent number: 10464120
    Abstract: A method for producing a forged crankshaft includes a die forging step of forming a forged blank having a crankshaft shape by die forging, and a pressing step of pressing the forged blank by a first dies. The forged blank includes first excess portions attached to some or all of crank arms each incorporating a counterweight, each of the first excess portions protrudes from a side portion of the crank arm, in a region near a journal. In the pressing step, the first excess portions are deformed by the first dies such that each of the first excess portions bulges toward a pin. This facilitates the production of a forged crankshaft with a reduced weight and assured stiffness.

  • Patent number: 10456200
    Abstract: The position of a metal marker 5 relative to an optical fiber 6 is fixed, and the metal marker 5 can be moved up close to a target site such as a thrombus. It is preferable that the position, in an optical fiber longitudinal direction, of a front-end face of the optical fiber 6 is coincident with the position, in an optical fiber longitudinal direction, of a front-end face of the metal marker 5. More specifically, since the distance between the target site and the front end of the optical fiber 6 is known by radiography, it becomes unnecessary to use a large quantity of contrast agent and irradiate a laser beam depending on skill and intuition, and therefore an effective laser beam irradiation becomes possible.
