  • Publication number: 20200309407
    Abstract: A heat exchange unit includes a housing having an inflow air passage communicating with an air inlet, and an outflow air passage communicating with an air outlet, a first partition plate that partitions an inside of the housing into the inflow air passage and the outflow air passage, a bellmouth disposed around an opening formed in the first partition plate, a centrifugal fan disposed on the first partition plate via the bellmouth, and a heat exchanger disposed on a downstream side of the centrifugal fan in the housing. The air inlet is open at any surface of the housing having the inflow air passage. The air outlet is open at any side surface of the housing having the outflow air passage. The inflow air passage is formed between a fan inlet and a main plate closest to the fan inlet to reach a rear surface. The fan inlet is an air inlet of the centrifugal fan.

  • Publication number: 20200309151
    Abstract: An air-sending device includes a housing including an inlet air passage communicating with an air inlet and an outlet air passage communicating with an air outlet, a first partition plate partitioning an interior of the housing into the inlet air passage and the outlet air passage, a bell mouth disposed around an opening defined in the first partition plate, and an impeller disposed over the first partition plate across the bell mouth and having a rotation axis that extends in a direction that intersects the first partition plate. The impeller suctions air into the inlet air passage from the air inlet, and blows out air from the air outlet through the outlet air passage. The inlet air passage guides air from the air inlet to the opening along the first partition plate, and has an air-passage wall.

  • Publication number: 20200159028
    Abstract: To propose a head-mounted display capable of enhancing convenience with respect to earphones. A head-mounted display (1) includes: a device main body (10) with a display device (11) incorporated therein; a mounting band (20) which extends toward the rear side from the device main body (10) and is used for mounting to a user's head; a right earphone holding section (24R) which is provided at a right portion of the mounting band (20) and to and from which a right earphone (31R) can be attached and detached; and a left earphone holding section (24L) which is provided at a left portion of the mounting band (20) and to and from which a left earphone (31L) can be attached and detached. According to the HMD 1, the user can recognize the positions of the earphones (31R) and (31L) without visual confirmation.

  • Patent number: 6984445
    Abstract: A multi-layer sheet of the present invention comprises a thermoplastic resin foam sheet, a reinforcing sheet layered on integrated with at least one side of the thermoplastic resin foam sheet; the reinforcing sheet being formed by a non-woven fabric which comprises non-meltable fibers which are interwound with one another and which are bound together with a thermoplastic resin, the thermoplastic resin foam sheet having an aspect ratio Dz/Dxy of bubbles of 1.2 or more, and an expansion ratio of 5˜50 cc/g, and therefore the sheet is excellent in bending strength, compressive strength, thermo-forming property and dimensional stability as well as lightweight property, and so can ideally be used for an upholstery material for vehicles, a heat-insulation material, a buffer material and the like.

  • Patent number: 6613172
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a composite foam having a high compressive strength. A polyolefin resin is melted and kneaded with a modifying monomer to react them. A thermally decomposable chemical foaming agent is added to the obtained modified resin, and the mixture is kneaded. The obtained foamable resin composition is shaped into a sheet. A sheet-like facing material (3) having a strength sufficient to inhibit the foamable sheet from expanding in in-plane directions during thermal foaming is laminated on at least one side of the foamable sheet. The obtained foamable composite sheet is thermally foamed to produce a composite foam (1) having rugby-ball-shaped cells (2) oriented in the direction of the sheet thickness.

  • Publication number: 20030087079
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide polyolefin resin composite laminates prepared only from polyolefin resin materials which are environmentally friendly and flexible, the laminates being lightweight, having high rigidity, remaining free of decay, showing no dimensional variations if subjected to temperature or humidity variations and being amenable to recycling. A polyolefin resin is reacted with a modifying monomer to modify the resin. A chemical blowing agent is added to the modified resin obtained, followed by kneading. The resulting expandable resin composition is shaped into a sheet. A facing material is laminated to one surface of the expandable sheet obtained, the facing material having a strength capable of inhibiting the sheet from expanding in in-plane directions when the sheet is heated for expansion. The expandable sheet is heated for expansion to obtain a polyolefin resin composite laminate.
