  • Patent number: 10464582
    Abstract: A carbody support device of a railway vehicle, including support mechanisms installed between a front bogie and a carbody and between a rear bogie and the carbody in a traveling direction, and supporting the carbody against the respective bogies. The support mechanisms regulate both the front bogie and the rear bogie inclining in the same vehicle width direction with respect to the carbody when the railway vehicle travels through a curve, while the support mechanisms permit the front bogie and the rear bogie inclining in different vehicle width directions.

  • Publication number: 20190318850
    Abstract: A braid processing device trims an end portion of an exposed braid of a braid-shielded cable including a cable center portion (e.g., two insulated wires), a braid that covers an outer circumferential surface of the cable center portion, and a sheath that covers an outer circumferential surface of the braid, the exposed braid being exposed from the sheath. The braid processing device includes a braid raising mechanism that raises the exposed braid from the cable center portion toward an outer circumferential side, and a shearing mechanism. The shearing mechanism includes an outer blade that has an annular outer cutting edge, an inner blade that has an annular inner cutting edge, the annular outer cutting edge and the annular inner cutting edge being capable of shearing the exposed braid therebetween, and a blade driving portion that relatively moves the inner blade toward the annular outer cutting edge.

  • Patent number: 10419677
    Abstract: An image capturing apparatus that includes one or more image sensors configured to capture a plurality of images and store the captured images in a memory. The apparatus also includes a circuitry that detects an input trigger and continues to capture new images in response to the trigger. The numbers of new images captured are equal in magnitude to half the magnitude of the capacity of the memory. The first new image captured after detecting the trigger is tagged as a reference image. In response to the number of new images captured, the sensors are deactivated and the reference image is displayed immediately on a display panel. On detecting an input operation, the apparatus displays a target image from the plurality of images captured in a quick and efficient manner.
