  • Patent number: 10788125
    Abstract: A first dog ring and a second dog ring are biased toward each other by means of springs. When the first dog ring and the second dog ring are moved away from each other, bias force produced by the springs is applied to the second dog ring in a direction to draw the second dog ring toward the first dog ring. Accordingly, when the first dog ring is moved away from the second dog ring during shifting, the second dog ring is drawn toward the first dog ring under the bias force, and third engaging teeth of the second dog ring and meshing teeth of a first-speed gear are promptly disengaged from each other.

  • Patent number: 10781935
    Abstract: A valve operating member includes a valve support portion, which supports a valve disk while allowing the valve disk to move relative to the valve operating member in a direction of an axis. An elastic member is disposed inside a valve chest. The elastic member constantly urges the valve disk toward the valve seat in the direction of the axis to cause the valve disk to be seated on the valve seat with an urging force. The valve support portion includes a valve engagement portion, which is engaged with an engaged portion of the valve disk seated on the valve seat, and separates the valve disk apart from the valve seat. When the valve disk is seated on the valve seat, the valve engagement portion is not in contact with the valve disk in the direction of the axis.

  • Patent number: 10617361
    Abstract: To allow an implantable device including an electronic circuit to be implanted in the head in a more preferable manner in terms of appearance and safely. This implantable device is used for a brain-machine interface or the like. A casing of an implantable device configured to be implanted in a human head has an outer convexity surface matching an external shape of a resected skull related to at least a craniotomy site of the artificial bone designed in accordance with a skull shape of each person in order to fill the craniotomy site. That is, the outer convexity surface of the artificial bone is provided with two functions: the original function of filling the craniotomy site as the artificial bone and a function of serving as the casing of the implantable device.

    Abstract: [Object] There is provided a manifold base and a manifold-type electromagnetic valve that uses the manifold base, wherein a silencer for attenuating exhaust noise of solenoid valves is embedded in a base body, thereby enabling streamlined designing of the base body. [Solution] Main channels 9a and 9b are provided in a base body 2 so as to pass through the base body 2 in a direction of arranging valve mounting regions 3 in a row. In addition, communicating openings 10a and 10b are also provided in the base body 2 so as to allow the main channels 9a and 9b to communicate with a valve mounting surface 2A that is the top surface of the base body 2. The communicating openings 10a and 10b open at the valve mounting surface 2A so as to cross the valve mounting regions 3, and silencers 50 is installed in respective communicating openings 10a and 10b so as to extend in the longitudinal direction of the communicating openings 10a and 10b.

  • Publication number: 20190242442
    Abstract: A dog clutch includes a gear (40) mounted on a power transmission shaft (30), first and second dog rings (10, 20), a fork (60), springs (65), and cam grooves (31). The cam grooves (31) each include a first slope surface (36) inclined from the axial direction toward the positive rotation direction as the first slope surface (36) approaches the gear (40) and a second parallel surface (37) parallel to the axial direction. The first dog ring (10) includes first cam protrusions (16) to be engaged with the respective first slope surfaces (36), and the second dog ring (20) includes second cam protrusions (26) to be engaged with the respective second parallel surfaces (37). This structure prevents the dog rings and the fork from coming into contact with each other, thereby avoiding generation of abrasion and increasing the transmission efficiency.
