  • Patent number: 10525515
    Abstract: A method for deriving the position of a pushing roll, applied even when there is a difference between the actual processed shape and a theoretical solution (a numerical analysis solution) due to changes in a state of a processing machine or the bending characteristic of the material to be processed. The rolls have a pyramid-like shape, and the operation amount of a pushing roll is changed while continuously feeding a material, thereby bending the material. Also, for each position of the fixed pushing roll, the radius of curvature of the material is measured and the bending characteristic is grasped in advance. From the design shape, the radius of curvature and the operation amount for bringing the pushing roll into contact are obtained. The operation amount of the pushing roll is then determined.

  • Patent number: 5113821
    Abstract: A speed governor for a vehicle with an internal combustion engine senses an engine operating condition indicating the vehicle speed. When the vehicle speed indicated by the operating condition exceeds a prescribed speed, the cylinders of the engine are temporarily prevented from firing for short periods until the vehicle speed falls below the prescribed speed. In one form of the invention, a first sensor that senses a first operating condition is used to determine the vehicle speed under normal operating conditions. When the first sensor becomes inappropriate or malfunctions, a second sensor that senses another operating condition is used to determine the vehicle speed.

    Abstract: An optical encoder comprising a photointerruptor having light-emitting and light-receiving optical fibers and a rotatable pulse scale disposed in an optical path between both of the opposed end faces of the optical fibers so as to shut the optical path intermittently, thereby generating optical pulses in accordance with an angle of rotation of the pulse scale, in which the light-receiving optical fiber has a larger diameter and a greater numerical aperture NA than those of the light-emitting fiber. The light-emitting optical fiber may be replaced with a light-emitting device. Further, a reflector may be interposed in the optical path. Optical pulse signals indicative of an angle of rotation can be detected effectively and it is possible to facilitate the assembling or wiring operation and reduce the production cost.

  • Patent number: 4561412
    Abstract: An ignition apparatus for internal combustion engines for preventing input noises out of an ignition signal line from affecting the ignition timing of the engine to make knocking or a start malfunction. A bistable circuit is provided for eliminating such input noises. The bistable circuit is associated with a Schmitt circuit which serves to energize or de-energize an ignition coil for inducing a discharging voltage. The Schmitt circuit is overridden by the bistable circuit for a time interval corresponding to a time for which such input noises exist. Afterwards, the Schmitt circuit receives as an input the ignition signal synchronizing with an engine speed and controls the ignition timing.
