  • Publication number: 20190133638
    Abstract: A sensor insertion device comprises a main body, needle slider, disposal slider, spring, puncture knob, and opening mechanism (window member and handle). The needle slider grips a needle and a sensor on a first end side, and is slidable inside the main body. The disposal slider is slidable inside the main body. The puncture knob has an insertion hole into which the rear end portion of the needle slider can be inserted. The opening mechanism puts the insertion hole into a closed state when the needle slider is being slid in the sensor insertion direction, and, puts the insertion hole in an open state in which the second end side of the needle slider has been inserted into the insertion hole by opening up the contact portion between the puncture knob and the second end side of the needle slider when the puncture operation is complete.

  • Publication number: 20180361231
    Abstract: A non-limiting example portable apparatus comprises a housing, and the housing includes an accommodation member and a lid. A coupling member is provided with a main body and two protruding portions formed on a side surface of the main body, and is rotatably secured to the housing within a plane parallel to a rear surface of the housing (lid). Moreover, a ring-like member is formed of material capable of deforming more easily elastically than the housing and the coupling member, and has a shape that a part of a ring-like frame is cut out. Engaging portions are provided in end portions of the ring-like member, and the engaging portions are engaged with the protruding portions of the coupling member. Therefore, the ring-like member is joined to the coupling member rotatably in a direction that the ring-like member is tilted (opened) to the rear surface of the housing. A user holds or wears the portable apparatus by passing a finger through the ring-like member to use it.

  • Patent number: 8684647
    Abstract: An operating member mounting structure includes a mounting plate having an inner edge defining a mounting hole, and an operating member includes a keytop and a flange which are coupled to each other by a shaft, and the flange is formed with a slit. The diameter of the flange is larger than that of the mounting hole. When the operating member is rotated and pressed down in a state that the slit receives the inner edge of the mounting hole, the flange passes over the inner edge of the mounting hole to be fully brought beneath the mounting plate. An operating shaft of an operated device is inserted into an insertion hole opened on the surface of the flange. By operating the keytop exposed from the top surface of the mounting plate, the operated device can be operated through the operating shaft.

  • Patent number: 8419955
    Abstract: An antireflection structure that can be formed in a desired shape, and a method for manufacturing the same are provided. An antireflection structure 100 includes a resin layer 200 formed in a desired shape, and inorganic material fine particles 201 dispersed inside the resin layer. A plurality of fine concaves 202 having an average inner diameter shorter than or equal to the minimum wavelength of light whose reflection should be suppressed are formed at the surface of the antireflection structure 100, thereby reducing the equivalent refractive index at the surface of the resin layer 200. The fine concaves 202 are formed by, after forming a composite material in which the nanosized inorganic material fine particles 201 are dispersed in the resin layer, dissolving the inorganic material fine particles 201 dispersed at the surface of the resin layer 200, using a solvent that dissolves only the inorganic material fine particles 201.

  • Patent number: 7601281
    Abstract: A flowable insulating resin 1 is placed in a sheet-like molding die space and conductive magnetic particles 2 are dispersed in the insulating resin 1. A first magnetic field G1 is acted in the sheet thickness direction on the position where a conductive path is to be formed in the die space, and conductive magnetic particles 2a are locally collected together to form a conductive path. Simultaneously, a second magnetic field G2 is acted in the sheet thickness direction on the intermediate region and the magnetic field G2 is moved in the lateral direction to move conductive magnetic particles 2b left in the intermediate region to join the collection forming the conductive path. As a result, the number of the conductive magnetic particles left in the insulating resin becomes smaller.
