  • Publication number: 20210260916
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a vehicle wheel of the present invention includes a step of performing an edge treatment including deburring of a spoke edge generated by lathe processing. For the edge treatment, a cutting tool as hale type tool for non-rotational processing is used, and the cutting tool is provided with a processing blade having a recessed blade edge having an R shape or polygonal C shape protruding from an outer peripheral surface on a side of a tip end of the rod-shaped cutting tool connected to a rod-shaped shank portion. A processing machine capable of CNC of four or more axes is used. With the cutting tool standing upright against a disc surface, the blade edge of the processing blade is applied to the spoke edge, and the cutting tool is continuously moved relative to the spoke edge along a ridgeline of the spoke edge for scraping.

  • Publication number: 20080008963
    Abstract: A reversible heat-sensitive recording medium is provided, which includes a heat-sensitive portion, and a light-transmitting heat-insulating layer disposed to contact the heat-sensitive portion. The heat-sensitive portion contains a light-heat conversion material and a heat-sensitive reversible layer. The light-heat conversion material is enabled to absorb light having a specific wavelength and to convert the light into heat energy. The heat-sensitive reversible layer contains an electron-donating coloring compound and an electron-accepting compound and is enabled to change from a decolorized state to a color-developed state and vice versa, depending on difference in heating temperature and/or cooling temperature to be effected after heating. The light-transmitting heat-insulating is capable of transmitting light having the specific wavelength which the light-heat conversion material is enabled to absorb and also capable of insulating the heat to be emitted from the light-heat conversion material.

    Abstract: A first suction port communicates with one open side of a stator, and an outlet communicates with the other open side of the stator. A rotor fixed to forward and reverse rotatable rotation shaft is contained inside the stator. The rotor has a spiral flow channel on its outer peripheral surface to suck fluid from the first suction port and discharge the fluid to the outlet along with forward rotation. A pump chamber surrounding the rotation shaft and communicating with a second suction port and a discharge port, is provided on one open side of the stator. An impeller to suck the fluid from the second suction port and discharge the fluid to the discharge port along with the forward rotation is fixed in the rotation shaft inside the pump chamber. The impeller comprises a first pressing surface to press the fluid in the pump chamber in the same direction as the thrust load acting on the rotation shaft along with the forward rotation of the rotor.
