  • Patent number: 10351288
    Abstract: A paper sheets pre-processing apparatus of an embodiment includes a large band remover, a small bundle coupler, a small band remover and an accumulator. The large band remover conveys a bundle in which a plurality of paper sheets are bound by small bands and a predetermined number of small bundles are bound by a large band, and removes the large band from the bundle. The small bundle coupler conveys the predetermined number of small bundles included in the bundle from which the large band is removed by the large band remover, and couples the predetermined number of small bundles to each other. The small band remover separates a single small bundle from the small bundles coupled by the small bundle coupler and removes the small band from the small bundle. The accumulator accumulates the paper sheets from which the small band is removed by the small band remover.

  • Patent number: 10308071
    Abstract: A reinforcement means for molded and extruded articles such as tires has a metal structure with a layer of silica gel bonded thereto. The silica gel bonds the reinforcement means to the rubber compound during the molding/vulcanization of the rubber compound without the need for a slow curing stage. The silica gel may be applied to the metal structure by a sol-gel process with the gel formed by drying the sol at a temperature up to 150° C. The reinforcement means is preferably a cable formed from steel wires coated with the silica gel. To further improve bonding of the silica gel to the rubber compound, an organosilane bonding agent may be included in the rubber compound or the reinforcing means provided with a second layer comprising an organosilane as a bonding agent. The reinforcement means are particularly useful for strengthening and providing geometric stability to tires.

  • Publication number: 20180052393
    Abstract: A substrate on which exposure processing has not been performed is carried into a placement cooling unit and cooled. The cooled substrate is held and carried out from the placement cooling unit by a transport device. In the case where an exposure device is able to receive the substrate, the substrate that has been carried out from the placement cooling unit is transported to the exposure device by the transport device. In the case where the exposure device is unable to receive the substrate, the substrate that has been carried out from the platform cooling unit is carried into a cooling buffer unit by the transport device. In the cooling buffer unit, a temperature of the substrate is maintained. After the exposure device becomes able to receive the substrate, the substrate is carried out from the cooling buffer unit and transported to the exposure device by the transport device.
