  • Patent number: 10711840
    Abstract: Provided is a method of manufacturing a bearing device for a wheel including an inner ring that is fixed to a hub wheel by a caulking portion formed by plastically deforming an end portion of the hub wheel in a radially outward direction. The inner ring includes a raceway groove formed by grinding. A backing plate, which is driven to rotate about an axis thereof, is pressed on a large end surface of the inner ring. The grinding is performed by rotating the inner ring by rotation of the backing plate. A pressing position of the backing plate is apart from a radially-outer-side chamfered portion and a radially-inner-side chamfered portion of the large end surface of the inner ring.

  • Patent number: 10598226
    Abstract: A bearing device (1) for a vehicle wheel is provided with: a magnetic encoder (7) provided to an inner-side end of an inner race (4), which is an inward member; a cover (11) for covering an inner-side opening (2B) of an outer race (2), which is an outward member, the cover having opened therein a sensor attachment hole (11H) in which an opening (11A) and a thin-walled bottom (11B) are formed; and a magnetic sensor (9) disposed facing the magnetic encoder across the bottom. The magnetic sensor is inserted into the sensor attachment hole in the cover through the opening (11A). The bottom (11B) in the sensor attachment hole is formed in such a shape as to bulge toward the inner side.

  • Patent number: 10099509
    Abstract: A wheel bearing apparatus, incorporating a wheel speed detecting apparatus, has a mounting portion (17) on a cover body (15). It includes an insertion portion (17a) formed with a bottom insertion bore (22), and a cylindrical securing portion (17b). A wheel speed sensor unit (18) is secured in the insertion portion (17a) by a securing bolt (21), via a mounting member (20). The insertion portion (17a) of the mounting portion (17) is arranged at a horizontal position through the center of a bottom 15c of the cover body (15). The securing portion (17b) is arranged at a position vertically below the insertion portion (17a). The wheel speed sensor (18) and a pulser ring (14) oppose each other, via a bottom (22a) of the insertion bore (22). A discharging portion, with an axially extending slit (24) or discharging groove (26), is formed at a road surface-side of the insertion bore (22) to communicate the insertion bore (22) with the outside.

  • Publication number: 20060155088
    Abstract: A crystalline polymer exhibiting crystal transition in the solid phase state, which satisfies the relationship defined by the formula 150>?Htr>1.6Ttr?3.5 (1) (wherein ?Htr represents the endotherm (J/g) accompanying crystal transition and Ttr represents the crystal transition temperature (° C.)). This crystalline polymer has a weight average molecular weight of 600 thousand or less and a crystal transition temperature (Ttr) of 67° C. or below. Since this crystalline polymer has a low phase transition temperature, a high heat of a crystal transition, and a high melting point, the potential utility thereof as a switching element or a thermal storage material used at around normal environment temperatures (20 to 50° C.) is high.
