  • Patent number: 10746629
    Abstract: An inspection device of an optical fiber unit, including a plurality of binding materials wound in an SZ shape on a plurality of optical fibers, includes: a measurement sensor that measures a width of the optical fiber units in a first direction orthogonal to a longitudinal direction in which the optical fiber unit extends; and a determination circuit that determines a presence or an absence of an abnormality in a binding state, based on a measurement result of the measurement sensor.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: August 7, 2017
    Date of Patent: August 18, 2020
    Assignee: Fujikura Ltd.

  • Patent number: 9758355
    Abstract: Provided is a brake device (2) which has reduced manufacturing cost, is compact, and can generate sufficient braking force. Also provided is a crane (1) which comprises the brake device (2). The brake device (2) is installed in a movable body (1) which travels. The brake device (2) is provided with a receiving section (22) affixed to the movable body (1) and is also provided with a brake shoe (21) disposed below the receiving section (21). The brake shoe (21) has a brake shoe upper surface (24) provided with sloped sections (24u, 24d). The receiving section (22) has a receiving lower surface (26) corresponding to the brake shoe upper surface (24) and provided with sloped sections (26u, 26d). The brake device (2) is configured so that, when the brake device (2) is activated, the brake shoe (21) drops, and the receiving section (22) rides over the brake shoe upper surface (24) when the movable body (1) moves.

  • Patent number: 5497546
    Abstract: Load terminals are mounted to a circuit board by providing a solder layer on each lead terminal and on each conductive inner wall surface of respective holes formed in the circuit board. The lead terminals are thrust into respective holes, and contacting portions of the solder layers are irradiated with an energy beam, to produce sufficient heat for welding in a fluxless manner each lead terminal to the inner wall surface of its respective hole.
