  • Patent number: 10794258
    Abstract: An exhaust pipe structure for an in-line four-cylinder internal combustion engine includes: an in-line four-cylinder internal combustion engine; four exhaust pipes connected with respective exhaust ports in respective cylinders of the internal combustion engine; and a converging exhaust pipe connected with a converging portion at which downstream ends of all the exhaust pipes converge. In this exhaust pipe structure, the exhaust pipes are each configured as a dual pipe including an outer pipe and an inner pipe disposed inside the outer pipe. At the converging portion, the four exhaust pipes are arrayed linearly in parallel with each other, and the outer pipes of adjacent ones of the exhaust pipes are directly welded with each other at the downstream ends.

  • Publication number: 20110099839
    Abstract: A drying apparatus for manufacturing a pressure-sensitive adhesive tape in which a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer is formed on a strip-shaped long tape base material is provided. The drying apparatus dries coating agent coated at least on one surface of the tape base material. The tape base material that is transferred in a lengthwise direction thereof is spirally wound around a cylinder body from one end side of the cylinder body to the other end side of the cylinder body in a slidable state. The cylinder body is formed with a plurality of air holes on an entire circumferential wall thereof, around which the tape base material is spirally wound, the air holes through which warm air or hot air flows from the inside of the cylinder body to the outside of the cylinder body.

  • Patent number: 5273193
    Abstract: A welding fuel tank has a magnet 3 disposed on the inside or outside thereof in the vicinity of a fuel pump 12 which is housed inside the fuel tank. The magnet collects magnetic spatter which remains inside the fuel tank after welding and prevents the spatter from entering the fuel pump. The magnet may be a permanent magnet or an electromagnet, and it may be disposed outside the pump or in the fuel filter of the fuel pump. A cleaning method for a welded fuel tank comprises introducing a magnet into a fuel tank after welding, vibrating the fuel tank so that the magnet will move about the inside of the fuel tank and collect magnetic spatter, and then removing the magnet and spatter from the fuel tank.

  • Patent number: 4839667
    Abstract: A platen for use in thermal printer of a type designed to effect a printing with the use of at least one thermal print head for printing on a recording medium positioned between the platen and the thermal print head, which platen comprises a generally elongated elastic body having an exterior surface adapted to be brought into contact with the heating elements of the thermal print head assembly with at least the recording medium intervening therebetween, and a layer of porous material lined on the exterior surface of the elastic body and having a hardness greater than that of the elastic body and also having a thermal conductivity lower than that of the elastic body. The thermal conductivity and the porosity of the layer of porous material may be within the range of 0.05 to 0.10 Kcal/m.sup.2 .multidot.hr.multidot..degree.C. and within the range of 50 to 95%, respectively.

  • Patent number: 4733251
    Abstract: A thermal transfer printing method which is performed by the use of a thermal printer including a platen, a thermal print head having at least one heating element and a length of ink carrier ribbon with the recording medium positioned between the thermal print head and the length of ink carrier ribbon, which ink carrier ribbon having a base film and an ink layer, which method includes the steps of pressing the ink carrier ribbon against the platen by the thermal print head with the ink layer brought in contact with the recording medium, heating the heating element to cause that portion of the ink layer, which is aligned with the heating element, to fuse, and causing that portion of the ink layer so fused to partially transfer onto the recording medium when a cohesive force acting internally of the ink layer becomes smaller than an adhesive force acting between the ink layer and the recording medium and, at the same time, smaller than a adhesive force acting between the ink layer and the base film, whereby the
