  • Publication number: 20190096399
    Abstract: When an incoming call is received, a voice recognition control device automatically decides a first language (Japanese) as a language corresponding to call information. A voice recognizing device recognizes voice information during a call when an incoming call is received using a first voice recognition engine corresponding to the first language. After the incoming call is received, the voice recognition control device switches the first language to a second language (English) in response to a switching instruction to instruct switching from the first language to the second language, and recognizes the voice information during a call after the incoming call is received using a second voice recognition engine corresponding to the second language.

  • Patent number: 8708620
    Abstract: A tool holder is provided that prevents chattering in a large-sized cutting tool. A tool holder 1 includes an anti-vibration device provided in a radially outer portion of a body. The anti-vibration device has a ring-shaped first anti-vibration member and a second anti-vibration member. The anti-vibration device is fixed to the body together with a cutting tool T1 by means of a bolt. Four O-rings are arranged on both sides of the first anti-vibration member, and the damper property is adjusted by pressing a pressing plate with adjuster bolts. An appropriate gap is formed between the first anti-vibration member and the body and between the first anti-vibration member and the second anti-vibration member.

  • Patent number: 7958976
    Abstract: The pad clip 14d is arranged between pins 12, 12 made to bridge an outer body portion and an inner body portion constituting a caliper and the two pads 10b, 11b. An engaging plate portion 27 is engaged with the respective pins 12, 12 without play. Press pieces 28, 28 formed by folding to bend both end portions in a rotational direction of the engaging plate portion in directions in which the more proximate to the two pads 10b, 11b, the more directed to an outer side in a radial direction are brought into elastic contact with outer peripheral edges of both end portions in a rotational direction of pressure plates 13b, 13b of the two pads 10b, 11b. Thereby, amounts of projecting portions in correspondence with the respective press pieces 28, 28 in a state of a material plate before being folded to bend from the engaging plate portion 27 can be restrained.
