  • Patent number: 10926344
    Abstract: Provided is a taper reamer with which it is possible to achieve an improvement in machining accuracy and machining life. The taper reamer comprises a plurality of cutting edges each having a helical shape provided on the outer periphery of a cutting-edge portion having an external diameter being expanded from a front end toward a rear end thereof, wherein an intertooth angle, defined between each of a pair of the cutting edges adjacently arranged in a circumferential direction, is different from one another at any given reference position, and wherein the plurality of cutting edges each have a helix angle that is different from one another. As the plurality of cutting edges that are unequally partitioned each have the helix angle that is different from one another, a resonance during cutting can be prevented.

  • Patent number: 10758954
    Abstract: A method for immobilizing arsenic includes adding calcium arsenate to a glass-forming material containing iron, silica, and alkaline components so that an iron/silica weight ratio is in a range of 0.5 to 0.9 and an amount of alkaline components is in a range of 14 wt % to 26 wt %, and thereby incorporating the arsenic into a glass solidified body. For example, the method for immobilizing arsenic may include: adding an alkaline solution and an oxidizing agent to a copper-arsenic-containing substance, and thereby carrying out an oxidizing leaching; separating a leach residue by solid-liquid separation; adding calcium hydroxide to a recovered alkaline arsenate solution to generate calcium arsenate; and adding the glass-forming material to the recovered calcium arsenate so that the iron/silica weight ratio and the amount of alkaline components are in the above-mentioned ranges, and thereby incorporating the arsenic into the glass solidified body.
