  • Patent number: 10377368
    Abstract: A controller is provided so as to control, when an electric vehicle (EV) mode is selected, a belt clamping pressure on the basis of discharged oil from a main oil pump which is driven by a motor generator. The controller is provided for a hybrid vehicle and is configured to perform control such that when the vehicle is stopped in the EV mode and a creep cut condition which does not require creep torque from the motor generator is met, a first motor idling rotation speed is set as a motor rotation speed. When the vehicle is stopped in the EV mode and a standby learning control completes learning of a zero-point oil pressure command value, the controller reduces a rotation speed of the motor generator to a second motor idling rotation speed which is lower than the first motor idling rotation speed.

  • Patent number: 10364855
    Abstract: A disc brake caliper includes an outer body, an inner body, and joining parts connecting the inner body and the outer body with each other at both end portions in a circumferential direction of a rotor so as to form an opening part. An inward end edge of both end edges in the circumferential direction of at least one of the joining parts, which defines an end part of the opening part in the circumferential direction, is inclined relative to an axial direction of the rotor towards a central part in the circumferential direction of the outer body from the inner body side to the outer body side, so that a length of the opening part in the circumferential direction is shortened from the inner body side to the outer body side.

  • Publication number: 20190169475
    Abstract: Provided is a solvent-free-adhesive polyisocyanate composition, containing, a polyisocyanate (A) and an aromatic vinyl-maleic anhydride copolymer (B), which is a copolymer of aromatic vinyl and maleic anhydride in which a molar ratio [aromatic vinyl/maleic anhydride] of the raw material monomers of the copolymer is 1.5/1 to 5/1. Further provided is a method for producing the polyisocyanate composition; a solvent-free adhesive containing, the solvent-free-adhesive polyisocyanate composition and a polyol (Y); and a multilayer film obtained by laminating a first base material film, a second base material film, and an adhesive layer between the base material films, in which the adhesive layer is formed of the solvent-free adhesive.

  • Patent number: 9500241
    Abstract: A disk brake pad includes a lining and a back plate supporting the lining. A first side part of the back plate in the circumferential direction includes a guided portion configured to engage movably in the axial direction with a guiding portion of a pad support member. The guided portion is disposed at a position more inward in the radial direction than a line of action of a brake tangential force applied in braking, so as to support a brake tangential force applied toward a second side part of the back plate in the circumferential direction in braking. The back plate is configured to support a brake tangential force applied toward the first side part in braking at a portion thereof that exists more outward in the radial direction than the line of action of the brake tangential force.

  • Publication number: 20160208146
    Abstract: Provided are an adhesive, a polyisocyanate component and a polyol component which are to be used in the adhesive, and a laminated film. The adhesive has a small elution amount of a low-molecular chemical substance when being used as a packaging material. The laminated film has a small amount of the low-molecular chemical substance eluted into the contents during packaging. The adhesive contains polyisocyanate (A), an alicyclic amide compound (B), and polyol (C) as essential components. When the adhesive is used, a polyisocyanate mixture obtained by mixing the polyisocyanate (A) and the alicyclic amide compound (B) in advance or a polyol mixture obtained by mixing the polyol (C) and the alicyclic amide compound (B) in advance is used as one component of a two-liquid adhesive.

  • Patent number: 9377071
    Abstract: A pad spring for a disk brake includes a mounting portion configured to be elastically mounted onto radial outside portions of pad support members of the disk brake; a pressure portion having a pair of pressure arms configured to elastically press outer circumferential edges of circumferential-direction one-end portions of back plates of pads of the disk brake inwardly in a radial direction of a rotor of the disk brake; and a held plate section formed between torque transmission surfaces of the back plates and torque receiving surfaces of the pad support members. The pad spring is formed by bending an elastic and corrosion-resistant metal plate so as to elastically press the pads in the radial direction.

  • Publication number: 20160152880
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to reduce the amount of a chemical substance migrated to food while maintaining adhesion of a transparent vapor deposition film in an adhesive for a flexible package, formed of a polyol and an isocyanate. This object is achieved by a laminate adhesive composition containing a polyester polyol or a polyol such as a polyester polyol, a polyisocyanate, and a silane coupling agent (C), and also preferably a styrene-maleic acid copolymer, in which the silane coupling agent (C) is a mixture of an epoxy silane (c1) and an aminosilane (c2) or a reaction product thereof.
