  • Patent number: 9199364
    Abstract: It is to provide a torque driver capable of bringing a marker into direct contact with a surface of a fastener member such as a screw to perform marking. A torque driver 1 is configured such that a case 10 is rotated relative to a main shaft 20 when a tightening force applied to the case 10 is transmitted to the main shaft 20 through a torque limiter section 30 and a tightening torque on a screw 80 engaged with a bit 70 attached to a coupler 60 fixed at a tip portion of the main shaft 20 reaches a torque value set in the torque limiter section 30. The torque driver 1 includes: a marker 54 extending from an inside of the coupler 60 to a tip portion of the bit 70 along a side surface of the bit 70; and a marker activating section 40 that allows the marker 54 to move forward by utilizing rotation of the case 10 relative to the main shaft 20 so that a marker tip portion 53 is brought into contact with the screw 80 to perform marking.

  • Patent number: 8443702
    Abstract: To make improvements in torque wrenches with a torque limiter that uses a cam mechanism and to provide a torque wrench that realizes more stable operation and is capable of highly precise tightening. In a torque wrench with a torque limiter that uses a cam mechanism, a solid columnar roller member 14 is engaged with a cam part 7 of a cam shaft 8 such that it is rotatably supported by a roller support lever member 12 mounted in a head portion 2 such as to be rotatable around a support shaft 16 and such that it is pressed against the cam part 7 by a spring force transmitting rod 18 biased by a torque setting spring. The roller support lever member 12 is configured such that the distance r2 from the support shaft 16 to a point of application of force of the spring force transmitting rod 18 is longer than the distance r1 from the support shaft 16 to the roller member 14.

  • Patent number: 8376355
    Abstract: In a sheet discharge device, sheets are sequentially discharged by a sheet discharge roller with a leading end of each of the sheets in the lead in a sheet discharge direction and stacked on a sheet receiving tray inclining relative to a vertical direction. A sheet reverse member is disposed at such a position relative to the sheet receiving tray and the sheet discharge roller that a trailing end of a first sheet discharged by the sheet discharge roller reaches the sheet reverse member before a leading end of a second sheet discharged subsequently to the first sheet collides with the first sheet when a sheet time interval between the trailing end of the first sheet and the leading end of the second sheet is set to a minimum sheet time interval available in continuous sheet discharge in the sheet discharge device.
