  • Publication number: 20200290112
    Abstract: A production method includes a preforming process, a forming process and a finish forging process. In the preforming process, an intermediate preform is formed from a billet. In the forming process, while each of a plurality of rough journals of the intermediate preform is held and pressed vertically by a pair of holding dies, rough pins are decentered in directions perpendicular to the pressing direction by the holding dies and an axial direction of the intermediate preform, and the intermediate preform is pressed in the axial direction of the intermediate preform. In the finish forging process, a final preform is placed such that the directions in which the rough pins are decentered are parallel to a horizontal direction, and the thus placed final preform is pressed vertically by a pair of pressing dies. The production method reduces the risk of occurrence of seams on a forged crankshaft.

  • Patent number: 10681487
    Abstract: The present technology relates to an acoustic signal processing apparatus, an acoustic signal processing method and a program which can widen the variations of the configuration of a virtual surround system that stabilizes the localization sensation of a virtual speaker. Crosstalk correction processing is performed on a first binaural signal based on a sound source opposite side HRTF and a second binaural signal based on a sound source side HRTF. A first acoustic signal and a second acoustic signal are generated. A component of a first frequency band, in which a first notch of the sound source opposite side HRTF appears, and a component of a second frequency band, in which a second notch appears, are attenuated in an input signal or the second binaural signal, thereby attenuating the component of the first frequency band and the component of the second frequency band of the first acoustic signal and the second acoustic signal.

  • Publication number: 20200101521
    Abstract: A method for producing a forged crankshaft includes: a clumping step of holding a first region by clumping a first region of a bar-like material by a pair of first dies, and a decentering step of decentering a second region of the bar-like material with second dies while the first region is held. The second region is a pin-corresponding part which is to be the pin. The first region is a crank arm-corresponding part which is to be the crank arm. The decentering direction by the second die is a direction perpendicular to each of the clumping direction of the first dies and the longitudinal direction of the bar-like material, and is the same direction as the decentering direction of the corresponding pin. This improves material yield while suppressing increase in the facility cost.
