  • Patent number: 6913105
    Abstract: A shock-absorbing mechanism for a power-transmission device includes a cylindrical driven-side shaft coupled to the driving-side shaft through a constant-velocity joint to be axially relatively slidable with respect to the driving-side shaft, a center bearing for rotatably supporting the driving-side shaft to the vehicle body, and a labyrinth mechanism for sealing the inside of the center bearing. An end of the driven-side shaft on the side of the driving-side shaft is disposed axially opposite to the labyrinth mechanism. When the two shafts are slid in the direction to approach each other by an axial load input thereto, the end of the driven-side shaft collides axially with the labyrinth mechanism.

  • Publication number: 20030118402
    Abstract: In the method of construction for draining the ground for the ground in which as shown in FIG. 11, the circumference of the surface of ground requiring draining of the ground (1) is dug to form a waterway (3). The central portion is built from the peripheral portion and leveled by a roller rolling to form a foundation bed (2). Rainwater permeated into the ground surface earth (9) covering the upper surface of the foundation bed (2) is gathered and flows into the peripheral waterway (3) from the concave portions (19) of the corrugated plate of plastics (7) to effect draining. The corrugated plate (7) on the surface has a corrugated surface in which a number of convex portions (18) and a number of concave portions (19) are alternately continuous. The corrugated plates (7) have an end shape in which the end is put on the end of other same shaped corrugated plate (7) and can be enlarged.

  • Patent number: 6146281
    Abstract: An outer joint part includes a cup-shaped body portion having a rotation axis. The cup-shaped body portion has an inner circumferential surface having a plurality of circumferentially spaced inner grooves, and an outer circumferential surface having a plurality of outer grooves circumferentially alternately disposed relative to the inner grooves. The wall thickness of the cup-shaped body portion at the outer grooves is smaller than the wall thickness of the cup-shaped body portion in the areas between the outer grooves. A preform formed into the outer joint part includes a bowl-shaped preform portion having a center axis and inner and outer circumferential surfaces similar in shape to each other. The inner circumferential surface defines inner recesses circumferentially spaced from each other. The outer circumferential surface defines outer recesses circumferentially alternately disposed relative to the inner recesses.

  • Patent number: 5885162
    Abstract: A universal joint constituted by a first joint, a second joint and a rolling element. The first joint is formed by friction-welding an outer race member and a connecting shaft member. The connecting shaft member has a ring-shaped connecting portion which is welded with a bottom portion of the outer race member. The connecting portion is formed to project from a recess portion of the connecting shaft member toward the outer race member. Therefore, burr generated by the friction welding between the connecting portion and the bottom surface of the outer race member is received in a space defined by the recess portion and the bottom surface of the outer race member. This facilitates removal of the burr.
