  • Patent number: 10787758
    Abstract: In order to prevent a replacement of the needle plate in the situation not suitable for replacing the needle plate, a needle plate detachable mechanism has a needle plate fixing unit capable of being switched between a fixed state where a needle plate is fixed to a sewing machine body and an unfixed state where the fixed state is released; and a switching mechanism which is connected with the needle plate fixing unit for switching the needle plate fixing unit between the fixed state and the unfixed state, wherein the needle plate fixing unit is prevented from being switched when the needle is positioned below an upper surface of the needle plate or when the sewing machine motor is driven.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10787759
    Abstract: In order to improve detachability of a needle plate, a needle plate detachable mechanism has a needle plate which is provided on a bed part of the sewing machine and made of a magnetic body; a magnet which is provided below the needle plate for fixing the needle plate by magnetic force; and a magnetic force changing mechanism which is connected with the magnet for changing the magnetic force acting on the needle plate by relatively moving the magnet with respect to the needle plate.

  • Patent number: 10370507
    Abstract: Provided are a carbon fiber thermoplastic resin prepreg which is a carbon fiber prepreg obtained by impregnating a PAN-based carbon fiber in which the average fiber fineness of a single fiber is 1.0 dtex to 2.4 dtex with a thermoplastic resin, wherein the thermoplastic resin satisfies 20?(FM/FS)?40 (where FM: flexural modulus (MPa) of a resin sheet comprising only the thermoplastic resin, and FS: flexural strength (MPa) of the resin sheet), a method for manufacturing the same, and a carbon fiber composite material employing the carbon fiber prepreg.
