  • Patent number: 8888258
    Abstract: The present invention provides a printing liquid container, a printing liquid filled container, an image forming apparatus, and a printing liquid filled container manufacturing method that may enlarge the opening surface area in a seal membrane. Namely, the printing liquid container includes: a sealing membrane provided to a capping section for sealing an opening in the capping section; a contact portion formed in a central portion of the sealing membrane, the contact portion is contacted by a hole piercing tool for forming a hole in the sealing membrane; and a first rupture portion configured thinner than the sealing membrane and extending out from the contact portion to an outer peripheral portion of the sealing membrane.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 8827250
    Abstract: A vibration reduction device includes: a rod rigid body supported between an engine and a vehicle body via respective elastic bodies, a resonance frequency of which is set to be lower than an engine rigid body resonance frequency; an elastic component that is provided on the rod rigid body and caused to deform by a force acting in an axial direction of the rod rigid body; an inertial mass supported by the elastic component; and an actuator that causes the inertial mass to reciprocate in the axial direction of the rod rigid body by generating a force that is proportionate to an axial direction velocity of the rod rigid body. As a result, resonance itself can be suppressed without reducing a double vibration proofing effect.

  • Publication number: 20130265374
    Abstract: A liquid for printing and a gas are filled in a liquid housing section of a liquid pack configured by a flexible material that can let liquid flow out from an opening without gas-liquid replacement. The gas fill volume is 0.059 or greater with respect to a containable volume capacity of the liquid housing section being 1.

  • Patent number: 8464438
    Abstract: A seasoning apparatus includes: a table on which a stack of paper sheets is loaded; a ceiling plate which is arranged above the table to cover an upper side of the paper stack on the table; a front side plate and a rear side plate which are arranged to oppose to each other at front and rear sides of the paper stack on the table, at least one of the front and rear side plates being advanceable and retractable relatively to each other; a right-hand side plate and a left-hand side plate which are arranged to oppose to each other at a right-hand side and a left-hand side of the paper stack on the table, at least one of the right-hand and left-hand side plates being advanceable and retractable relatively to each other; and an air blowing device which blows air horizontally toward the paper stack on the table.

  • Patent number: 5073893
    Abstract: A semiconductor structure has a substrate crystal having a plurality of crystal orientations. Above the substrate is an atomic-layer superlattice in which different semiconductors are laminated one over another with a period in terms of atomic layers. This structure makes it possible to realize a semiconductor structure in which several kinds of quantum wires or quantum boxes having different physical properties, or an atomic-layer superlattice having an enlarged structure of the quantum wire or quantum box, are arranged in the plane orientation of the same substrate. In addition, the structure makes it possible to realize a semiconductor laser device having this structure.
