  • Patent number: 11021906
    Abstract: The objective is to propose a production method of multiple panes which can be simple and nevertheless produce a multiple pane in its finished state which does not include any undesired protrusion from an external surface of a glass panel. The production method includes: hermetically bonding, with a sealing member, peripheries of paired glass panels disposed facing each other at a predetermined distance to form a space to be hermetically enclosed between the glass panels; evacuating air from the space through an outlet to make the space be in a reduced pressure state; and dividing, after the space is made be in the reduced pressure state, the space by a region forming member into an outlet region including the outlet and a reduced pressure region other than the outlet region.

  • Publication number: 20200047488
    Abstract: A protective sheet is to be laid on an endless belt sheet and covers a surface of the endless belt sheet to protect the surface. When the protective sheet is laid on the endless belt sheet, the bending stiffness of the protective sheet is lower in the circumferential direction of the endless belt sheet than in the width direction that is orthogonal relative to the circumferential direction. Thus, the risk of being bent and damaged of the endless belt sheet is minimized and the cumbersomeness of the operation of replacing the endless belt sheet is remarkably reduced by using such a protective sheet.

  • Patent number: 10415201
    Abstract: An opening/closing device according to the present invention includes a gate, a fall prevention unit, a support release unit, a first float, a floating prevention unit, a second float, and a floating prevention release unit. The gate receives a flow of fluid, and is able to fall down toward a downstream direction of the flow. The fall prevention unit supports the gate, thereby preventing the gate from falling down. The support release unit releases the support for the gate by the fall prevention unit. The first float is arranged on an upstream side of the gate, is arranged on one of the left side and the right side of the gate viewed from upstream, and is less in the specific gravity than the fluid. The floating prevention unit prevents the first float from floating.
