  • Patent number: 10737588
    Abstract: To provide a power seat slide device having improved effects of reducing abnormal sound, a temperature increase, and so on in gear mechanisms and so on. Gear mechanisms each include a case in which a worm and a worm wheel are rotatably supported, the cases are suspended from and supported by upper rails. The worms are connected to and supported by a rotational force transmission shaft of a drive mechanism, and the worm wheels are screwed to and supported by slide screws provided in lower rails. Further, the cases are supported on the lower rails via balls which are rolling members. This structure stabilizes a slide operation of the cases themselves and can further improve the effects of reducing abnormal sound and so on.

  • Patent number: 10712986
    Abstract: A job processing apparatus that is capable of positively stopping a transmission job desired by a user. A transmission job is input according to a user's operation. Uncompleted transmission jobs out of input transmission jobs are managed by a job management table. A first stop instruction for stopping a transmission job is received according to a user's operation. In a case where the first stop instruction is received during display of a configuration screen for making settings of a transmission job, a transmission job input last out of the transmission jobs managed by the job management table is searched for, and the searched-for transmission job is stopped.

  • Patent number: 10654377
    Abstract: To reduce energy loss to increase power transmission efficiency, as well as to suppress unusual sound resulting from whirling vibration. A driving force transmission mechanism includes a drive unit that generates a rotation force and consists of a motor, as well as an independent rotating mechanism that is disposed between the drive unit and one of a pair of left and right gear mechanisms so as to be connected to the output shaft of the drive unit and has greater kinetic energy than the rotating parts of the gear mechanisms. Flexible shafts that rotate by smaller kinetic energy than any of the kinetic energy of the drive unit, the kinetic energy of the rotating mechanism, and the friction forces and damping forces of the rotating parts of the gear mechanisms connect between the drive unit and rotating mechanism, between the rotating mechanism and one gear mechanism, and between the drive unit and the other gear mechanism.

  • Patent number: 10369912
    Abstract: A torque transfer control mechanism that suppresses output-side displacement, and including a rotation control unit that maintains a locked state when an input torque rotating a transfer mechanism is not applied, and releases the locked state when the transfer mechanism rotates. The rotation control unit includes an internal gear and lock plates that include outer teeth that can engage with inner teeth of the internal gear. When an input torque is not applied, the inner teeth of the internal gear engage with the outer teeth of the lock plates, and when the transfer mechanism is rotated, engagement between the inner teeth and the outer teeth is released. Thus, even when torque is applied from the output unit side, engagement between the inner teeth and the outer teeth is not released by the torque.

  • Patent number: 10363839
    Abstract: A seat slide adjuster suited to weight-saving has a structure in which two rows of engaged portions are provided at a predetermined interval in a direction orthogonal to a longitudinal direction of a locking plate that constitutes a locking mechanism, and the engaged portions engage with locking tooth parts on both sides of a lower rail during locking. Force that works between the locking plate and the lower rail acts on the locking tooth parts on both sides in a well-balanced manner and is not biased to either side. As a result, the durability of the components thereof can be improved. In addition, because two rows of hole portions in the locking plate engage, rattling of the locking plate is not likely to occur.
