  • Publication number: 20200292063
    Abstract: An operation lever is rotatable in a vertical rotation direction about a vertical rotation shaft and rotatable in a front-rear rotation direction about a front-rear rotation shaft non-parallel to the vertical rotation shaft. An urging portion urges the operation lever to move to a predetermined initial position. A neutral cam portion rotates following a rotation of the operation lever in the vertical rotation direction; a forward/backward cam portion rotates following a rotation of the operation lever in the front-rear rotation direction; a neutral switch portion is pressed by the neutral cam portion and detects the pressing in a state where the neutral cam portion is rotated to a neutral pressing position; and a forward/backward switch portion is pressed by the forward/backward cam portion and detects the pressing in a state where the forward/backward cam portion is rotated to a forward pressing position or a backward pressing position.

  • Patent number: 10646186
    Abstract: An X-ray computed tomography (CT) apparatus according to an embodiment includes an X-ray generator, an X-ray detector and processing circuitry. The X-ray generator irradiates X-rays to a subject. The X-ray detector detects the X-rays that have passed through the subject. The processing circuitry calculates an estimated spectrum based on an irradiation spectrum, an estimated length and information indicating a distortion of a spectrum occurring in a path of the X-rays passing through the subject, the estimated length representing an estimated value of an X-ray transmission length of a material of decomposition target. The processing circuitry determines an X-ray transmission length of the material of decomposition target based on the estimated spectrum and a detected spectrum that is a spectrum after the X-rays have passed through the subject and that is detected by the X-ray detector.

  • Patent number: 10618099
    Abstract: In a die for compressing and sizing a sintered body at straight portions, upper taper portions are provided on a die upper portion and a core rod upper portion, and the straight portions are provided at a die lower portion and a core rod lower portion. The die upper portion and the core rod upper portion have Young's moduli higher than the die lower portion and the core rod lower portion. The die upper portion and the core rod upper portion are made of materials having Young's moduli that are at least 50 GPa higher than that of the sintered body. The sintered body can be densified with a smaller ironing margin. Since the sintered body is ironed without being compressed, by the upper taper portions and the core rod upper portion having high Young's moduli, the die is prevented from breaking and being abraded due to ironing.
