  • Publication number: 20190039278
    Abstract: A blow molding apparatus improves productivity and obtains a high-quality molded product by supplying a good-quality parison to molds. A blow molding apparatus includes: a die head which discharges a parison; a parison supplying part which cuts the discharged parison at a preset length and conveys the cut parison; and a blow molding part in which the supplied parison is clamped between blow molds so as to perform blow molding. The parison supplying part has a pickup chuck which conveys the cut parison alternately to a first supplying position set on one of right and left sides with respect to a discharge center of the die head and a second supplying position set on the other of right and left sides with respect to the discharge center. The blow molding part performs blow molding at the blow molds arranged at the first supplying position and the second supplying position, respectively.

  • Patent number: 9797362
    Abstract: A starter control apparatus outputs a conduction command to a starter relay when an engine start request is generated and starts driving of a starter. After the engine is started, when a condition for executing the failure diagnosis processing is satisfied, the starter control apparatus outputs a non-conduction command to a starter cutoff relay and diagnoses the starter cutoff relay for failure. The starter control apparatus determines that the starter cutoff relay is normal when a voltage applied to the starter after notification of the non-conduction command to the starter cutoff relay does not exceed a predetermined voltage. The starter control apparatus determines that the starter cutoff relay is abnormal when the voltage applied to the starter exceeds the predetermined voltage.

  • Patent number: 8973975
    Abstract: A structure for the front portion of a vehicle body includes both an under load path member and a front load transmission member. The under load path member is extended toward the rear of the vehicle body from a lower bulk member to a sub-frame. The front load transmission member is provided at a position closer to the front of the vehicle body than the under load path member and closer to the rear of the vehicle body than the front end of the bottom of the lower bulk member, and transmits to the under load path member a load which is inputted from in front of the vehicle body. A gap is formed between the front load transmission member and the under load path member.

  • Patent number: 8320014
    Abstract: The present invention prevents necessary image data from deviating from a print medium and thereby executes a good printing operation without a loss of necessary image data. For this purpose, when performing a so-called marginless printing, in which ink is applied also to an area overrunning from the print medium to form an image without leaving a blank margin at edges of the print medium, the overrunning widths of the area are made adjustable.

  • Patent number: 8306688
    Abstract: An electronic control unit performs a process that stores into a buffer selected diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) currently in a volatile trouble code storage by selecting, from among multiple codes, a code that is to be saved in an EEPROM, when an ignition switch of a vehicle is turned off. Further, the DTC stored in the buffer is written in the EEPROM. If the electronic control unit receives, from a scan tool, a command that instructs erasure of the DTC in the volatile trouble code storage, the above-described process is performed before erasing the DTC from the volatile trouble code storage.

  • Publication number: 20070062952
    Abstract: An opening structure of a container easily performs the opening and the resealing. The container continuously and integrally forms a cap portion and a pouring portion. Due to a radial deformation of an easy-to-break portion which is present in a boundary between the cap portion and the pouring portion, the easy-to-break portion is broken and hence the cap portion and the pouring portion are separated, thus opening the container. A manufacturing method for the novel container is also provided.

  • Publication number: 20050205575
    Abstract: A task of the present invention is to provide a container sealing structure capable of easily and surely unsealing a container and hygienically maintaining an opening portion at the time of resealing, and a method of manufacturing the sealing structure. The container sealing structure of the present invention is configured by integrally forming a pouring portion (12) and a cap portion (16). An easily breakable portion (15) is formed in the container sealing structure. The pouring portion (12) and the cap portion (16) includes an intermediate wall (13) which is formed by bending downwardly from an upper end portion of an inner wall (11) and an outer wall (14) which is formed by bending upwardly from a lower end portion of the intermediate wall (13).

  • Patent number: 4899277
    Abstract: A bore hole scanner includes a light projecting device for projecting a light beam toward a bore hole wall surface. A conical mirror is arranged coaxially with respect to a sonde for condensing light reflected from the bore hole wall surface. An image forming device is arranged in front of the conical mirror. A photoelectric transducing device converts a light signal into an electric signal. Optical fibers introduce an image, which is formed on concentric circles by the image forming device to the photoelectric transducing device. A data processing device scans and extracts signals from the photoelectric transducing device and generates and processes image data indicative of the bore hole wall surface. A sonde position detecting device detects the orientation and position of the sonde. Rotating portions are dispensed with by using the conical mirror and optical fibers, and a linear CCD array can be used as the photoelectric transducing device.
