  • Publication number: 20200161609
    Abstract: The electrical apparatus, in which a series connection state and a parallel connection state of an upper cell unit including five battery cells and a lower cell unit can be automatically switched by means of a difference in a terminal shape on the electrical apparatus body side, has a terminal holder and holds apparatus side terminals. The terminal holder, which establishes an electrically connected state with the connection terminals of the battery pack, is provided with two parallel protruding parts that extend in the forward-backward direction, and second rail grooves fitted to the protruding parts on the electrical apparatus side. Due to the fitting, relative movement of the terminal holder and the battery pack in the vertical direction can be suppressed, and wear on the apparatus side terminals can be greatly suppressed.

  • Patent number: 10654153
    Abstract: In order to provide an impact tool which is capable of increasing a striking force in a rotational direction of being applied from a hammer to an anvil, the impact tool includes: an electric motor; an anvil which supports a work tool and is driven by the electric motor; and a hammer which applies the striking force in the rotational direction to the anvil. The impact tool is provided with: a spindle which is arranged to be concentric with the anvil, supports the hammer to be movable in an axial direction and the rotational direction with respect to the anvil, and transmits motive power of the electric motor to the anvil; and a control unit which controls rotation speed of the electric motor. The number of strokes of the anvil due to one rotation of the hammer differs in response to rotation speed of the electric motor.

  • Publication number: 20190259984
    Abstract: A battery pack houses first and second cell units that are composed of a plurality of cells, and has a positive electrode power source terminal and a negative electrode power source terminal. This battery pack is provided with a series connector capable of connecting, in series, the first and second cell units and a parallel connector capable of connecting, in parallel, the first and second cell units, and is capable of switching between a parallel connection voltage and a series connection voltage. In the case of attachment to the high voltage electrical device body, the series connector becomes conductive and the parallel connector pair is cut off by the action of the series/parallel switching terminal. In the case of attachment to a low voltage electrical device body, the state is returned to an initial state, the series connector is cut off, and the parallel connector pair becomes conductive.

  • Publication number: 20190259985
    Abstract: In an upper cell unit (2146) and a lower cell unit (2147) comprising five battery cells, positive electrode terminals (2162, 2172) are set apart and aligned vertically, and negative electrode terminals (2167, 2177) are set apart and aligned vertically. When an electrical device body is rated at 36V, device-side terminals are in contact only at the upper terminals (2162, 2167), and short circuiting of the lower terminals (2172, 2177) is effected using a short bar 2059. When the electrical device body is rated at 18V, the upper and lower terminals (2162 and 2172, 2167 and 2177) are simultaneously made to contact the device-side terminals, and the upper cell unit (2146) and the lower cell unit (2147) assume a parallel connected state. Thus, it is possible to automatically switch the output voltage when a battery pack is mounted according to the difference in terminal shape on the electrical device body side.

  • Patent number: 9748534
    Abstract: When a battery pack is mounted to a battery attachment part, the battery pack is slid in a horizontal direction (a direction substantially perpendicular to an upper-lower direction) with respect to the housing, e.g., along a long longitudinal direction of a battery-side rail part, such that tool-side rail parts of the battery attachment part are introduced into engaging recess portions of the battery pack. Thereby, the elastic members are fitted and compressed in the battery-side rail parts and the tool-side rail parts, so that the elastic members press upwards the battery-side rail part (e.g., the battery pack) and press downwards the tool-side rail parts (e.g., the housing). That is, the elastic members press the battery pack and the housing such that they come close to each other.

  • Patent number: 9670998
    Abstract: An oscillation tool includes a grip-portion housing and a front-side housing which are fitted to each other so as to freely slide on each other. In the case that a driving unit and an oscillating unit are distanced from each other, the oscillating shaft is oscillated at a narrow amplitude. On the other hand, in a case that the driving unit and the oscillating unit are approached by each other, the oscillating shaft is oscillated at a wide amplitude.

  • Publication number: 20170036327
    Abstract: Provided is an impact type electric tool. A striking mechanism is used, which uses a hammer having striking claws that are equally arranged in the rotational direction and an anvil having struck claws. A relationship between a striking energy E, which the hammer has right before striking the anvil, and a disengaging torque TB, which is applied between the hammer and the anvil right before the hammer is disengaged from the anvil, is set as 5.3×TB<E<9.3×TB in the case of three claws and set as 9.3×TB<E<15.0×TB in the case of two claws, so as to perform striking by skipping one of the claws of the hammer and the anvil when a high torque is required. Accordingly, the electric tool achieves output of a high torque while maintaining a favorable operational feeling during striking.

  • Publication number: 20140123785
    Abstract: An amplitude of an oscillating shaft to which a tip tool is attached is changed. An oscillation tool 10 includes a grip-portion housing 11 and a front-side housing 12 which are fitted to each other so as to freely slide on each other. An electric motor 13 is housed in the grip-portion housing 11, and a spindle 18 including an eccentric shaft 17 is fixed at the electric motor 13. A blade 35 and a swing arm 37 are fixed at an oscillating shaft 31 to be housed in the front-side housing 12. The rotary motion of the spindle 18 is converted to the oscillating motion of the oscillating shaft 31 through the swing arm 37. In the case that a driving unit 20 on the electric motor 13 side and an oscillating unit 40 on the swing arm 37 side are distanced from each other so that a center axis C3 of the oscillating shaft 31 and a contact point of a bearing 19 onto arm pieces 39 are distanced from each other (by a distance L1), the oscillating shaft 31 is oscillated at a narrow amplitude X1.
