  • Patent number: 10533742
    Abstract: A burner case and a burner device provided with the burner case are disclosed. A cover for closing an opening of a case body of the burner case is attached to the case body by a first caulking portion and a second caulking portion. A first caulking direction and a second caulking direction intersect with each other, the first caulking direction is a direction in which a first attachment piece and a first facing portion, those constituting the first caulking portion, face each other and are caulked, the second caulking direction is a direction in which a second attachment piece and a second facing portion, those constituting the second caulking portion, face each other and are caulked. Thus, the case body and the cover are not required to be screwed or the number of the screws is reduced, and leakage of gas from the burner case to outside is prevented.

  • Patent number: 10502453
    Abstract: The burner case has a first member having a caulking portion and a second member having a facing portion facing the caulking portion and an extending portion for caulking, the extending portion extending from the facing portion, the caulking portion being held between the facing portion and the extending portion by bending the extending portion. A part of the extending portion in longitudinal direction constitutes a claw portion. Thus, the first member and the second member are not required to be screwed or the number of screws is reduced, thereby improving productivity of the burner case and reducing the production cost of the burner case.

  • Patent number: 10288313
    Abstract: A gas supply manifold has a nozzle forming member having a plurality of gas injection nozzles, a cover member configured to be overlapped on the nozzle forming member, and a caulking-fastening portion configured to fasten the nozzle forming member and the cover member. The caulking-fastening portion is configured such that a convex portion provided for one of the nozzle forming member and the cover member penetrates a hole provided for the other member, and a tip end portion of the convex portion has an engagement portion, the engagement portion having a larger diameter or a larger width than the hole and being engaged with a peripheral edge portion of the hole. A tip end face of the convex portion has a dent portion formed by pressing the tip end face into a base portion side of the convex portion and an area around the dent portion constitutes the engagement portion. Thus, the nozzle forming member and the cover member are appropriately caulked and fastened.

  • Publication number: 20180016953
    Abstract: An oil level gauge guide includes a cylindrical portion, a first pipe, and a second pipe. The cylindrical portion is provided on a crank case wall which defines a crank chamber including an oil reservoir of an engine, and includes a through hole which communicates the interior and exterior of the crank chamber with each other. The first pipe includes a first end held by the cylindrical portion, and a second end extending outside the crank chamber and fixed to the engine. The second pipe includes a first end held by the cylindrical portion, and a second end extending to the bottom of the crank chamber and fixed to the engine. The oil level gauge guide uses an arrangement pointing toward the lowermost portion of an oil pan, and yet has a high degree of freedom of the attaching position.

  • Publication number: 20180003127
    Abstract: An engine includes a cylinder block including a cylinder hole, a crank shaft as an offset crank, and a connecting rod that connects the piston and the crank shaft. An inclined surface is provided on an entire circumference of a crank-shaft-side opening edge of one end of the cylinder hole. When viewed in the axial direction of the crank shaft, a boundary line between the inclined surface and the cylinder hole extends towards the other end of the cylinder hole as it extends toward an offset side on which the crank shaft is offset from the center axis of the cylinder hole. The offset crank engine has the entire circumference of the crank-shaft-side opening edge of the cylinder hole chamfered without any bad influence on the sliding surface and posture of the piston to avoid interference between the crank-shaft-side opening edge of the cylinder hole and the connecting rod.
