  • Patent number: 11380940
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a nonaqueous electrolyte secondary battery, when an electrode tab is provided at a longitudinal-direction end portion of an electrode located at a winding-start side of an electrode body, the method being capable of sufficiently reducing damage on a separator and the electrode in a process for manufacturing the electrode body. In a manufacturing step of one example of an embodiment, a negative electrode tab is bonded to a longitudinal-direction end portion of a negative electrode to be located at a winding-start side of an electrode body, the negative electrode tab is processed so that a width-direction central portion of the negative electrode tab at least bulges toward a winding-outer side of the electrode body, and while a gap is formed between the negative electrode tab and a winding core, a positive electrode, the negative electrode, and a separator are wound around the winding core.

  • Patent number: 9405272
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes a fuser unit which includes a heat roller and a pressure roller; a duct which is formed in a long shape in a direction along an axis of the heat roller, is disposed in the vicinity of the fuser unit along the axis of the heat roller, and is exhausted by an exhaust fan which is provided on one end side in a long-side direction; an exhaust port which is opened to a first side wall of the fuser unit side of the duct and causes the fuser unit and the duct to communicate with each other; and a planar filter which is attached to an inner wall surface of the duct. The filter includes a filter base material having an irregular surface shape in which ditches and convex portions are alternately disposed; and a frame which is bonded to both ends orthogonal to an irregularity direction of the filter base material, the convex portion of the filter base material protrudes from the frame, and the convex portion of the filter base material is bonded or stuck to the inner wall surface.

  • Patent number: 8951326
    Abstract: Provided is a high-value added fertilizer using a microorganism or a component of a microorganism and especially a fertilizer capable of promoting the bearing of fruit trees and fruit vegetables. A reducing fertilizer obtained by subjecting a mixture of a microorganism or a component of a microorganism with phosphoric acid component and/or potassium component to a hydrothermal reaction treatment is capable of promoting the growth the roots, especially, the root hairs of fruit trees and also promoting the enlargement of their fruits. In particular, because of the reducing characteristic, the reducing fertilizer of the present invention has an excellent affinity for cells constituting the roots, and enables phosphoric acid component and potassium component, which are useful fertilizer components, to be absorbed effectively.
