  • Patent number: 9688242
    Abstract: A seatbelt retractor has: a holding plate arranged at a housing outer side and including a shaft receiving hole which rotatably supports a cylindrical shaped boss portion formed at a take-up drum side end of the driven body; and a restricting member arranged at take-up drum side of the holding plate to restrict movement of the boss portion in radial direction so that the boss portion projecting from the hole is positioned co-axial with the take-up drum. The boss portion which faces an inner peripheral surface of the hole includes a pair of radially projecting portions provided on both sides with reference to rotation axis direction projecting radially outward at full periphery of the boss portion. The pair of radially projecting portions project radially outward over the hole so at least a peripheral edge portion of the hole is inserted in clearance defined by the pair of radially projecting portions.

  • Publication number: 20170032983
    Abstract: A thermal catalytic layer is formed on the inner surface of a processing container and heated. Thus, when a sublimate sublimated from a coating film on a wafer W and received within the processing container reaches the vicinity of the thermal catalytic layer, the sublimate is decomposed and removed by the thermal activation of the thermal catalytic layer. In removing a sublimate attached to a light transmission window, a cleaning substrate formed with the thermal catalytic layer on the surface thereof is carried into the processing container and caused to approach the light transmission window. Thereafter, the cleaning substrate is heated so that the sublimate attached to the surface of the light transmission window is removed.
