  • Publication number: 20130004111
    Abstract: Provided is a spacer for a radial needle roller bearing that keeps dynamic torque of a double-row radial needle roller bearing low, while suppressing wear in areas of rubbing with adjacent members by causing there to be a film of oil having a proper amount of oil to exist in the areas of rubbing without excessive surface area. Concave sections that are recessed in a direction away from the adjacent members of the column sections 13a or rim sections 12 are formed in the outside surfaces in the radial direction and/or circumferential direction of the column sections 13a, and/or in the outside surfaces in the radial and/or axial direction of the rim sections 12, and preferably radial concave sections 22 having bottom and that are recessed toward the inside in the radial direction are formed in the outside surfaces in the radial direction of the column sections 13a.

  • Patent number: 7832657
    Abstract: By efficiently lowering a water temperature of a sea surface to thereby suppress an evaporation of a water vapor from the sea surface by lowering the water temperature of the sea surface, a generation of an atmospheric depression is prevented or its strength is weakened. Further, by suppressing a rise of the sea surface temperature, a generation of a red tide or a blue tide is prevented or reduced.

  • Publication number: 20090043643
    Abstract: The system and method accepts the inputs of an aggregate (long-range) production plan draft, a profit and loss target, a sales target, and a stock target. Then, the accepted long-range production plan draft is deployed into master production schedule and then a feasibility of the long-range production schedule draft is simulated. Based on the simulated result, the system and method calculates an amended schedule, a predicted profit and loss, and predicted sales of the long-range production schedule draft. Further, a supply schedule is calculated on the middle-range production schedule draft deployed from the long-range plan draft. Based on the supply schedule, the middle-range production schedule draft, and a planned buying unit price, the system and method calculates a predicted stock, an estimated loss of inventory price decline, and a planned acquisition cost of inventory. Each calculated prediction data item is displayed on screen.

  • Patent number: 7241044
    Abstract: An autonomous and decentralized production control system comprising a plurality of production cells for performing the assembly and machining work. Each production cell proceeds with the production procedure by performing jobs in accordance with the works charged thereinto. A first embodiment comprises working cells each including a device for determining the working cell for executing an intended job. A second embodiment comprises a pallet for carrying an object of a job, and a device for determining the order of job priority in order to meet the product delivery time. Each working cell decides on the advisability and time of performing the job on the object, thereby autonomously implementing the production control.
