  • Patent number: 10697189
    Abstract: A connector for temporary scaffolding at an end of a lateral member, to be wedge-connected to a receiver around a strut, includes: a wedge body provided movably at the end of the lateral member upward and downward relative to the lateral member; a locking body including a claw formed such that, as a result of the wedge-body's moving downward, the claw could travel from initial to locking position with respect to the receiver; and a biasing body capable of pressing the locking body toward the wedge body, wherein the wedge body includes a shoulder protruding toward the locking body, the locking body includes an interfering portion protruding toward the wedge body, and when the claw is at the initial position, the shoulder is blocked by the interfering portion from moving upward, thereby preventing the wedge body from moving upward and the locking body from traveling toward the biasing body.

  • Patent number: 10538256
    Abstract: According to a railcar, a fuse member that couples a first end beam to a second end beam along a car longitudinal direction is formed as a channel material with an approximately U-shaped cross-section, including a web disposed to extend along the car longitudinal direction and a pair of flanges disposed upright from both end portions of this web. Accordingly, when a load received in collision exceeds a predetermined value, the fuse member buckles to allow the first end beam to move toward the second end beam to ensure reducing variation of the load that allows the first end beam to move toward the second end beam. Consequently, when the intended load is input, the first end beam is allowed to move toward the second end beam.

  • Publication number: 20190378728
    Abstract: There is a method of manufacturing a multilayer wiring board including: alternately stacking wiring layers and insulating layers; stacking a reinforcing sheet on one surface of the resulting multilayer laminate with a soluble adhesive layer therebetween, wherein an unoccupied region without the soluble adhesive layer is provided within a facing area where the reinforcing sheet faces the multilayer laminate; allowing a liquid capable of dissolving the soluble adhesive layer to infiltrate the unoccupied region to dissolve or soften the soluble adhesive layer; and releasing the reinforcing sheet from the multilayer laminate at the soluble adhesive layer. This method enables the multilayer wiring layer to be reinforced to generate no large local warpage, thereby improving the reliable connection and the surface flatness (coplanarity) of the multilayer wiring layer. The used reinforcing sheet can be released in a significantly short time, while minimizing the stress applied to the multilayer laminate.

  • Publication number: 20190378727
    Abstract: There is provided a method of manufacturing a multilayer wiring board including: alternately stacking wiring layers and insulating layers; stacking a reinforcing sheet having openings on one surface of the resulting multilayer laminate with a soluble adhesive layer therebetween; contacting or infiltrating the soluble adhesive layer with a liquid capable of dissolving the soluble adhesive layer through the openings to thereby dissolve or soften the soluble adhesive layer; and releasing the reinforcing sheet from the multilayer laminate at the position of the soluble adhesive layer. This method enables the multilayer wiring layer to be reinforced so as to generate no large local warpage, thereby improving the reliable connection in the multilayer wiring layer and the flatness (coplanarity) on the surface of the multilayer wiring layer. The reinforcing sheet having finished its role can be released in a significantly short time, while minimizing the stress applied to the multilayer laminate.

  • Publication number: 20170327134
    Abstract: According to a railcar, a low-floor underframe includes side beams to which side bodyshells are coupled, a high-floor underframe includes a center sill disposed to extend in a car longitudinal direction at a center in a car width direction and a body bolster coupled to this center sill and to be an installation portion of a bogie, and the body bolster is coupled to the side beam by a coupling member. Thus, the car end compression load input to the high-floor underframe can be directly transmitted from the center sill and the body bolster to the side beams via the coupling member. This can disperse the car end compression load on the side bodyshells to ensure the car strength against the car end compression load.
