  • Patent number: 6987647
    Abstract: A cleaning device capable of cleaning a rotary head without discharging static electricity to a magnetic head is provided. The cleaning device comprises a protruding shaft-like supporting member provided at a position in a housing facing a portion of the outer peripheral surface of a rotary drum and opposite a portion in contact with a magnetic tape, and a cylindrical cleaning member supported at the upper end of the supporting member. The supporting member is configured with a metal material, and is electrically connected with the housing. The cleaning member is made of an electrically conductive resin in which carbon particles are contained. When and while the outer peripheral surface of the cleaning member is in contact with the outer peripheral surface of the rotary drum, the cleaning member is electrically connected with the housing through the supporting member.

  • Publication number: 20050265641
    Abstract: A bearing unit is provided which includes a shaft (51) to support rotatably, radial bearing (55) to support the shaft (51) circumferentially, a thrust bearing (66) to support the shaft (51) in the direction of thrusting, and a housing (56) having the radial bearing (55) and thrust bearing (66) disposed therein and in which a viscous fluid (57) is filled. The housing (56) has a sealed structure except for a shaft insertion hole (65) formed therein and through which the shaft 51 is introduced. Between the outer surface of the shaft (51) and the inner surface of the shaft insertion hole (65), there is defined a gap (69) having a sufficient width to prevent the viscous fluid (57) filled in the housing (56) from leaking out of the latter. The housing (56) is formed as a one-piece structure by molding a synthetic resin.

  • Publication number: 20030035242
    Abstract: The present invention is to provide a magnetic tape recording/reproducing device capable of accurately positioning a magnetic tape relative to a magnetic head to thereby improve recording/reproduction characteristics to or from the magnetic tape even when the running direction of the magnetic tape is inverted between forward and reverse directions. First guide rollers are provided so as to swing between a first inclined position and a second inclined position along a tangential direction of the magnetic tape partially wound on roller portions and, where the first inclined position is such that allowing upper flanges to reside on an upstream side of the lower flanges in the tape running direction, and the second inclined position is such that allowing the upper flanges to reside on a downstream side of the lower flanges in the tape running direction. The first guide rollers are respectively provided with drive means for allowing the first guide rollers to swing between the first and second inclined positions.

  • Patent number: 6104577
    Abstract: A disc cassette has a case in which a disc-like recording medium is rotatably received. The case has an opening through which at least a part of the recording medium is exposed. A rectangular recess is formed on a front area of the case where the opening is positioned. The recess is defined by two opposed side walls, a back wall and a bottom wall. The back wall faces forward. A shutter is slidably engaged with the recess in a manner to selectively open and close the opening. The shutter is slidable in a direction parallel with the direction in which the back wall extends. The back wall of the rectangular recess has a surface which is inclined relative to the bottom wall.

  • Patent number: 5474267
    Abstract: A method and device for effecting a fast but smooth deceleration or stopping of trains controlled under the automatic train control (ATC) system. Under ATC, a permitted maximum velocity is provided as an "ATC condition" to activate the brake system of the train if that velocity is exceeded. When it is necessary to alter the velocity of a train, a control center specifies a feeder section to have the ATC condition to be altered. Next, a substation corresponding to the specified feeder section is provided with notice about the alteration of the ATC condition. The notice includes the impending reduction of velocity. In response, the substation decelerates the train without using the ATC brake system provided on the train. When the train has been sufficiently slowed down such that the alteration of the ATC condition will not result in activation of the ATC brake system, the alteration of the ATC condition is then effected.

  • Patent number: 5467945
    Abstract: The invention relates to an improved block control for controlling a train safely and efficiently along a railway system. The apparatus includes a mechanism for designating a train route, a mechanism for assigning a feeder section along the designated train route to a desired substation, a mechanism for locking an assigned feeder section to a desired substation and for preventing unlocking of that assignment until predetermined conditions are met, a mechanism for designating a traveling direction of the train along the assigned feeder section, and a mechanism for controlling operation of the train along a designated control route. The invention also relates to a mechanism for enlarging a control route, a mechanism for unlocking the assigned feeder sections and substations, a mechanism for checking a determined control route, a mechanism for changing the borders of a feeder section, and a mechanism for selectively communicating received data to the correct substation to facilitate control of the train.
