  • Patent number: 11425843
    Abstract: A heat radiation structure (10) includes a casing (4) configured to accommodate a heating element (1), and a heat-sink type component (2) configured to directly or indirectly absorb heat from the heating element (1), contactlessly face the casing (4), and conduct the heat to the casing (4) via air existing in an internal space of the casing (4), wherein at least either the heat-sink type component (2) or the casing (4) is configured in such a way that, when heat is generated from the heating element (1), a distance between the heat-sink type component (2) and the casing (4) becomes nearer in a region of the internal space (3) in which temperature does not rise relatively easily than in a region of the internal space (3) in which temperature rises relatively easily.

  • Patent number: 11224148
    Abstract: A case (2) includes a tubular body (6) extending vertically and a top plate (8) disposed at a top edge of the tubular body (6), the case being capable of accommodating a heat-generating element (5). Upward ventholes (16) for discharging the heated air (P), which is heated by the heat-generating element (5), to the outside are formed in the top plate 8. A partition wall (17) that protrudes downwardly from the top plate (8) is disposed between the upward ventholes (16) and the tubular body (6). An air accumulating part (20) surrounded by the tubular body (6), the top plate (8), and the partition wall (17) is formed.

  • Publication number: 20210068286
    Abstract: Provided is a heat-dissipating waterproof structure having both excellent heat dissipation ability and high waterproofness. A heat-dissipating waterproof structure (300) provided between a top part (203) of a casing (200) to accommodate a heat source (102) and the heat source(102) includes a water receiving part (301) that guides a liquid having entered into the casing (200) through an outlet (203A) provided in the top part (203) of the casing (200), and a water guide channel (302) that guides the liquid having been guided by the water receiving part (301) to be discharged to outside of a space where the heat source (102) is accommodated, and the water receiving part (301) has at least a sloping surface which gradually becomes higher the further it is from being immediately above the heat source (102).

  • Patent number: 8419006
    Abstract: A paper automatic-feeding apparatus includes a first paper feeding path through which a paper medium passes; a second paper feeding path which is arranged separately from the first paper feeding path and through which a paper medium passes; a first fulcrum part to support a first chassis, which forms at least a part of the first paper feeding path, as a bearing so that the first chassis can be opened and closed; a second fulcrum part to support a second chassis, which forms at least a part of the second paper feeding path, as a bearing so that the second chassis can be opened and closed; and a fixation part to fix the first chassis and the second chassis so that the first chassis and the second chassis may be in a closed state through the fixation part being fixed on a predetermined fixed part; wherein the predetermined fixed part and the second fulcrum part are formed as a common part.
