  • Publication number: 20200340092
    Abstract: A method for producing a hot-rolled titanium plate includes, [1] melting at least one part of the side surface of the titanium slab by radiating a beam or plasma toward the side surface, not toward the surface to be rolled, and thereafter causing re-solidification to form, in the side surface, a layer having grain diameter of 1.5 mm or less and a depth of 3.0 mm or more from the side surface; [2] performing a finishing process on the surface to be rolled of the titanium slab in which the layer is formed, to thereby bring a slab flatness index X to 3.0 or less; and [3] subjecting the titanium slab after the finishing process to hot rolling under a condition in which a length of an arc of contact of a roll L in a first pass of rough rolling is 230 mm or more.

  • Publication number: 20200341428
    Abstract: A cartridge includes a drum unit and a development unit. The drum unit includes a photosensitive drum, a frame, a transfer roller, and a cleaning member. The development unit includes a development roller, and a memory. The cleaning member is configured to come into contact with the photosensitive drum at a region between a development nip portion and a transfer nip portion in a circumferential direction of the photosensitive drum and at an end portion of the photosensitive drum in a direction of the rotational axis. The frame has an exposing hole through which the memory is exposed from the frame, and a recessed portion that is adjacent to the exposing hole in the direction of the rotational axis, and stores foreign matters removed from the photosensitive drum by the cleaning member.
