  • Patent number: 10326064
    Abstract: A light emitting device includes a light emitting element, a light transmissive member, and a cover member. The light transmissive member is disposed on an upper face of the light emitting element. The cover member covers a lateral face of the light emitting element and a lateral face of the light transmissive member, and includes first and second cover members. The first cover member is disposed adjacent to the lateral face of the light emitting element and the lateral face of the light transmissive member, and contains a first light reflecting material and a fluorine-based first resin. The second cover member covers the first cover member, and contains a second light reflecting material and a second resin. A refractive index difference between the first light reflecting material and the first resin is larger than a refractive index difference between the second light reflecting material and the second resin.

  • Publication number: 20130267401
    Abstract: The present invention prevents unevenness in the amount of impregnation by a predetermined chemical and prevents a decrease in ease of removal resulting from increasing the rate of impregnation by the predetermined chemical. A press device (15) has: a plurality of rollers (201, 202, 203); press belts (204a, 204b) wound around the plurality of rollers (201, 202, 203); and conveyor belts (205, 206) that convey a stacked body (800). At least one roller from among the plurality of rollers (201, 202, 203) drives the press belts (204a, 204b) at a predetermined speed of conveyance and in a predetermined direction of conveyance. The press belts (204a, 204b) are disposed with a gap in an intersecting direction (CD) perpendicular to the conveyance direction (MD) that is such that the press belts (204a, 204b) can contact both end portions (800A, 800B) of the stacked body (800) in the intersecting direction (CD).

  • Publication number: 20130199710
    Abstract: In a method for manufacturing wet wipes, ridge regions raised along the conveyance direction are formed in sheets by causing each of the sheets to pass through between upper folding plates and a lower folding plate and folding the sheet multiple times on itself; each of the sheets having the ridge regions formed therein is impregnated with a predetermined chemical solution; and each of the sheets having been impregnated with the predetermined chemical solution is stacked on each other. After passing through between the upper folding plates and the lower folding plate, each of the sheets makes contact at a surface thereof with a conveyance roller, the surface being located opposite an extended plane across the surface having the ridge region formed therein, the extended plane being a plane obtained by extending the surface of the lower folding plate.
