  • Patent number: 7994682
    Abstract: Each of the paired brush devices includes a brush in sliding contact with a commutator, a brush arm holding the brush, and a brush base to which the brush arm is fixed and which has a base hole. The pair of brush devices are disposed such that a line connecting the centers of the pair of brushes inclines in relation to a line connecting the centers of a pair of magnets. Each of the brush arms of the brush devices is disposed on the outside of the corresponding brush base at a location where the brush arm is fixed to the brush base, and one of the brush arms is bent from the outside of the corresponding brush base toward the inside thereof while being passed through the base hole to intersect the brush base.

  • Patent number: 7549565
    Abstract: A conveyor for guiding and conveying a plurality of sheet-shaped thin plates in rows arranged side by side to a welding position at which ends of the adjacent thin plates are butted and welded to each other, includes a plurality of conveying paths, which are adjacent to each other, having different conveying surfaces which are placed on a same horizontal plane, and a guide unit disposed between the adjacent two conveying paths for guiding the thin plates on one of the conveying paths with respect to another one thereof toward the welding position. Each of the conveying paths is composed of a plurality conveying rollers, and the guide unit includes guide rollers each having a guide surface for guiding the thin plate on the one of the conveying paths in a state that the thin plate on the one conveying path is partially depressed with respect to the another one of the conveying path.

  • Patent number: 4183012
    Abstract: An electrical contact is embedded in an insulator which, in turn, is fitted onto the disk side of the backing plate on a disk pad. When the pad wears excessively the insulator is worn away and the contact abuts the disk so that an alarm signal may be generated. Further wear will cause the disk to abrade and break the contact. The contact assembly is compact and enters the brake assembly through a vent hole which is typically provided therein.

  • Patent number: 3976167
    Abstract: A disc brake pad having an integral backing plate on its rear surface is provided with a removable wear indicator. An insertion hole for the indicator extends through the backing plate and into the pad for a distance equal to the length of the wear indicator. To prevent the wear indicator from being forced backward out of the hole during operation of the brake, a thin plate is placed over the backing plate and firmly clamped thereto, thereby blocking rearward movement of the indicator.
