  • Patent number: 7610594
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a rotary driving device is disclosed. The method includes the steps of: mounting a turntable, which is equipped with an anti-slipping section on a disc-placeable surface, to a rotary shaft; rotating the turntable; and shaving off a disc-contact surface, with which a disc contacts when the disc is placed, of the anti-slipping section with a cutting tool through a cutting off machining method from outside of the disc-placeable surface toward the rotary shaft. A cutting edge of the cutting tool is placed widthwise in parallel with an end face of the anti-slipping section and thickness-wise along an axial direction of the rotary shaft. The cutting edge is set such that the sections of the tool other than the cutting edge do not touch the anti-slipping section.

  • Publication number: 20090050138
    Abstract: A mouthpiece (160) has a concave portion (161A) provided in a wall surface defining a flow path, and the concave portion (161A) is formed to have a curved surface that is curved only in one direction when seen from the above. The concave portion (161A) is provided with slit-like communication holes (162), and a valve body (170) is fixed by a fixing member (180) to the mouthpiece (160) at a generally central portion of the concave portion (161A) in the direction in which the concave portion (161A) is curved, so as to close the communication holes (162). With this structure, even if the valve body deteriorates over time due to long-term use, or the valve body deforms due to long-term use or cleaning and disinfection, its function as an exhalation valve is less likely to be impaired, and as a result, an inhaler capable of preventing leakage of aerosol can be provided.

  • Patent number: 7147132
    Abstract: An ampoule for containing a specified amount of liquid inside to be used for a liquid atomizer has a tubular main body having an open front part including an outlet at one end and an open back part at an opposite end. A piston is inserted into the main body from the open front part in an airtight manner and is slidable axially inside the main body. Another piston is inserted into the main body from the open back part in an airtight manner so as to be slidable axially inside the main body. The two pistons form a reservoir in between for storing a liquid. The forwardly located piston has a weakened part on the side that faces the reservoir. As a sharp member extending from the other piston penetrates this weakened, the reservoir and the outlet become connected and the liquid inside the reservoir is discharged.

  • Patent number: 6913208
    Abstract: A liquid atomizer includes a main body and an ampoule holder detachably attached to the main body for holding ampoules in an annular formation. The main body has an atomizing part for atomizing the liquid discharged from outlets of the ampoules. The outlet of each of these ampoules can be disposed proximal to the atomizing part by moving the ampoules around the annular formation. Positioning devices are between the main body and the ampoule holder for positioning the ampoule holder properly with respect to the main body. The ampoule holder holds the ampoules such that each of the ampoules can move between an advanced position and a retracted position. The outlet of each ampoule moves into the atomizing part when the ampoule moves to the advanced position. The ampoule holder is able to undergo a rotary motion with respect to the main body when each of the ampoules is at the retracted position.
