  • Patent number: 11028583
    Abstract: The present invention is transportable economically in a flat state, and easy to attach and detach, and can provide a curved surface simply while maintaining decoration and strength without craftsmanship and absorb sound. Slits are provided on a rectangular board panel comprising two or more layers of a hard material and a soft material. Two or more layers comprising a hard material and a soft material are laminated on a rectangular board panel, and slits having a length of ½ to ¾ of the vertical side are provided thereto. The use of slits makes formation of curved surfaces easy. Since there is no need to reinforce the outside to maintain the strength thereof, the board panel can be removed easily. Even if an external pressure is applied to the board panel, the flexibility of the hard material divided by the slits and the elastic characteristic of the soft material cause the pressure to be dispersed and absorbed, and sound to be absorbed.

  • Patent number: 10987678
    Abstract: Provided is a centrifuge. In a centrifuge having a rotor with a rotor body that holds a sample and that is rapidly rotated, an inclined surface that extends upward as it extends radially outward is formed on an upper-side outer peripheral portion of the rotor, in a region that is at a radially outward side and at an upper side of the outer edge of an opening. The inclined surface is a continuous ring-like inclined surface that has the same cross-sectional shape in the circumferential direction and is formed into a straight-line shape or a curved-line shape in cross-section along a rotation central axis. Although winds occur during high-speed rotation of the rotor, the winds are rectified by the inclined surface, and a component force for pressing the rotor body in a downward direction acts thereon.

  • Publication number: 20210039449
    Abstract: A pneumatic tire has a side portion located between a tread portion and a bead portion which includes a decorative element. The decorative element comprises linear protrusions extending along the side portion and bending to form a hook. The linear protrusions are disposed at intervals with tips of the hooks aligned in the same direction. Each of the linear protrusions includes a first and second portions. The first portion extends from an inner side in the radial direction to an outer side in the radial direction. The second portion extends from a bend position of each one of the linear protrusions and forms an angle of 90° or greater with the first portion at the bend position. Each bend position mutually differs in position in the radial direction between the linear protrusions, and the interval between adjacent linear protrusions is wider at the second portion than at the first portion.

  • Patent number: 10710168
    Abstract: The hard coating layer of the cutting tool includes a complex nitride or complex carbonitride layer expressed by the composition formula: (Ti1-xAlx)(CyN1-y). xavg and yavg satisfy 0.60?xavg?0.95 and 0?yavg?0.005. xavg is an average content ratio of Al in a total amount of Ti and Al, and yavg is an average content ratio of C in a total amount of C and N. Some crystal grains composing the complex nitride or complex carbonitride layer have a cubic structure. In crystal grains having the cubic structure, the average crystal grain misorientaion is 1 degree or more; or 2 degrees or more, based on analysis of the polished surface perpendicular to a surface of the layer. A peak exists in 1-2 degrees of the average crystal grain misorientation in the frequency distribution of the average crystal grain misorientation and the area ratio.
