  • Patent number: 9664120
    Abstract: A controller puts an internal combustion engine in a first induction control state in which a lift amount of an inlet valve is equal to or smaller than a predetermined amount and an opening of a throttle valve is larger than a predetermined opening with respect to a predetermined running state. The controller puts the internal combustion engine in a second induction control state in which the lift amount of the inlet valve is larger than the predetermined amount and the opening of the throttle valve is equal to or smaller than the predetermined opening with respect to the predetermined running state. An automatic stopper automatically stops the internal combustion engine in when the lift amount of the inlet valve is equal to or smaller than the predetermined amount, when a stopping condition of the internal combustion engine is met under which a predetermined vehicle state is produced.

  • Patent number: 9630240
    Abstract: An upper die and a lower die are brought together to perform a sizing work on a roughly forged part of a primary forged article within a die cavity defined between the upper and lower dies. The lower die has a vertical through-hole directly communicated with the die cavity, and a punch is relatively movably received in the vertical through-hole in such a manner as to define jointly with the vertical through-hole an annular material flow passage. During the sizing process, a material of the roughly forge part is forced against a peripheral surface of the die cavity and excess material is allowed to flow into the annular material flow passage.
