  • Publication number: 20210030157
    Abstract: An armrest according to the technology described herein includes a bracket, an armrest body, a device connecting port, an armrest-side connector, and a cable. The bracket is fixed to a seat frame. The armrest body is attached to the bracket to be rotatable. The device connecting port is exposed through an outer surface of the armrest body. The armrest-side connector is fixed to the seat frame at a position different from the bracket. The cable includes an end connected to the device connecting port and an end connected to an armrest-side connector. The armrest body includes a cable retaining portion through which the cable is passed and in which the cable is retained. Any one of the bracket and the armrest body includes a hole (an elongated hole) that allows movement of the cable along with rotation of the armrest body.

  • Publication number: 20210031660
    Abstract: An armrest includes a cable to be connected to a seat-side cable arranged on a seat, and a body member that is mountable on the seat and includes a routing section therein in which the cable is arranged. The cable includes an arranged portion that is arranged in the routing section and a connecting operation section that extends outside the routing section when being connected to the seat-side cable. The connecting operation section is arranged in the routing section when the body member is mounted on the seat.

  • Patent number: 8965556
    Abstract: This robot system includes a robot, a laser emitting portion moved by the robot, capable of scanning a welding locus with a laser beam at least in a state where the laser emitting portion is not moving, and a control portion controlling the laser emitting portion to scan the welding locus with the laser beam in order to perform welding with weaving on the welding locus at least in the state where the laser emitting portion is not moving.

  • Publication number: 20140217076
    Abstract: A robot system includes a robot, a controller, and a laser emitter which is configured to emit a laser beam to a target workpiece and which is configured to be moved by the robot. The controller is configured to control the laser emitter to emit the laser beam based on information regarding an arbitrarily-shaped work path and movement information of the laser emitter. The controller is configured to determine whether or not a reference position of the arbitrarily-shaped work path on the target workpiece is located in a predetermined range of the laser emitter while the laser emitter is moving. The controller is further configured to control the laser emitter to emit the laser beam to the arbitrarily-shaped work path if the reference position is located in the predetermined range.

  • Patent number: 4934282
    Abstract: Distribution nozzles are arranged on an air distribution plate disposed at the lower portion of a furnace and spaced apart by a predetermined distance from the bottom thereof and one or more spouted nozzles extend upwardly from the air distribution plate so that not only a fluidized bed defined by the air discharged through the distribution nozzle but also one or more spouted beds defined by the air flows injected through the spouted nozzle or nozzles into the fluidized bed are formed within the furnace. Because of the coexistence of the fluidized bed and the spouted bed or beds, the agitated effect in the fluidized bed is enhanced and the combustion efficiency as well as the desulfurization can be pronounced. A particle feeding pipe is connected to the furnace to feed fuel and desulfurizing agent into the furnace.
