  • Publication number: 20210032155
    Abstract: A supporting glass substrate has a ratio of a Young's modulus (GPa) to a density (g/cm3) that is 37.0 (GPa·cm3/g) or more and the ratio has a value larger than a ratio calculation value, the ratio calculation value being a ratio of a Young's modulus (GPa) calculated from a composition to a density (g/cm3). The ratio calculation value is represented by the following expression: ?=2·?{(Vi·Gi)/Mi·Xi}, where, in the expression, Vi is a filling parameter of a metal oxide contained in the supporting glass substrate, Gi is a dissociation energy of a metal oxide contained in the supporting glass substrate. Mi is a molecular weight of a metal oxide contained in the supporting glass substrate, and Xi is a molar ratio of a metal oxide contained in the supporting glass substrate.

  • Patent number: 8905208
    Abstract: A driving force transmission apparatus includes: a housing having an inner peripheral spline portion; an inner shaft having an outer peripheral spline portion; a main clutch including first outer and inner clutch plates respectively engaged with the inner and outer peripheral spline portions; a cam mechanism generating pressing force for pressing the main clutch by relatively rotating a pair of cam members; and an electromagnetic clutch mechanism including an armature engaged with the inner peripheral spline portion and applying rotation force to the cam mechanism for relatively rotating the cam members through energization of an electromagnetic coil. An end face facing the armature is formed in the inner peripheral spline portion between a first region engaged with the first outer clutch plate and a second region engaged with the armature. Movement of the armature toward the first region is regulated by contact of the armature with the end face.

  • Publication number: 20040221681
    Abstract: A power transmission device includes a first rotating member and a second rotating member rotatably supported in a casing. A clutch mechanism is placed between the first rotating member and the second rotating member, and switched between a power transmission state and a power shutoff state between the first rotating member and the second rotating member. A pilot mechanism switches the clutch mechanism between the power transmission state and the power shutoff state. A yoke is fitted to the casing to support the pilot mechanism. Power is transmitted between the first rotating member and the second rotating member when the pilot mechanism switches the clutch mechanism to the power transmission state. The casing includes a front portion and a rear portion divided and connected along an axis of the first rotating member and the second rotating member, and the yoke is fitted to the front portion.

  • Patent number: 6722482
    Abstract: A power transfer device including a main clutch, a cam mechanism and an electromagnetic pilot clutch mechanism coaxially assembled within a cylindrical space between an external cylindrical rotary member and an internal rotary member, wherein an electromagnetic coil of the pilot clutch mechanism is applied with an electric current to produce pilot torque, the cam mechanism is applied with the pilot torque to produce thrust force in an axial direction, and the main clutch is engaged by the thrust force applied from the cam mechanism to effect drive connection between the rotary members. In the power transfer device, residual thrust force of the cam mechanism is electrically or mechanically decreased at an instance when differential rotation of the rotary members is reversed.

  • Patent number: 5568258
    Abstract: A method of measuring a distortion of a transmitting beam, characterized in that a transmitting beam is emitted from a beam generator and projected onto a screen as a bright spot, the bright spot is scanned over a surface of the screen, and a distortion of the transmitting beam is measured on the basis of a distance between a first location of the bright spot on the screen at a first time when the transmitting beam is incident on a beam receiving device in a specified incident direction upon transmitting through a measured body, and a second location of the bright spot on the screen at a second time when the transmitting beam is incident on the beam receiving device in the specified incident direction upon not transmitting through the measured body.
