  • Publication number: 20190320845
    Abstract: In a method of baking both sides of ingredients between upper and lower dies with upper and lower electric heaters respectively, a temperature of one of the lower and upper dies is detected. Based on temperature information detected thereby, consumed power of the other of the lower and upper dies is controlled, thereby making a temperature of the lower die closer to that of the upper die, thereby baking both sides of the ingredients.

  • Patent number: 9604385
    Abstract: An electric trimmer includes: a base; and a trimmer main body configured capable of sliding movement in an axial direction of the base. The base includes a slit that extends in the axial direction and is open, and the base also includes a fixing releasing mechanism disposed so as to straddle both end portions of the slit. Operating the fixing releasing mechanism to reduce a distance between the both end portions of the slit enables clamping of the trimmer main body by the base to be performed. The fixing releasing mechanism is formed as a toggle mechanism that is configured by a combination of three support points and two links, and the fixing releasing mechanism has a shape which follows an outer peripheral surface of the base. Therefore, this electric trimmer includes high operability, strong impact resistance characteristics, and excellent maintenance properties.

  • Publication number: 20120025196
    Abstract: An organic thin film transistor includes an organic semiconductor layer, a source electrode and a drain electrode which are separated from each other and are individually in contact with the organic semiconductor layer, a gate insulating film which is in contact with the organic semiconductor layer between the source and drain electrodes, and a gate electrode which is opposed to the organic semiconductor layer and is in contact with the gate insulating film. In the organic thin film transistor, a high-concentration region of the organic semiconductor layer which is located near the source electrode has an impurity concentration set higher than an impurity concentration of a low-concentration region of the organic semiconductor layer, the low-concentration region being located near the gate electrode in the thickness direction of the organic semiconductor layer between the source and drain electrodes.

  • Publication number: 20110079334
    Abstract: A multi-rib tire tread has a plurality of circumferential spaced apart ribs in an axial direction, adjacent ribs separated by a circumferential grooves and each rib having sides extending radially outward to a radially outward contact surface. The outward contact surface of a central rib has an outwardly convex curvature in an axial direction more rounded than a tread curvature. A first lateral rib and a second lateral rib are positioned adjacent opposite sides of the central rib, each lateral rib having an outwardly convex curvature in an axial direction more rounded than a tread curvature. The convex curvature of the first and second lateral ribs are less rounded than the central rib. The radius of curvature of the center rib is within a range of 170 and 270 millimeters; the radius of curvature of the first lateral rib is within a range of 80 to 180 millimeters; and the radius of curvature of the second lateral rib is within a range of 100 to 200 millimeters.

  • Patent number: 7712498
    Abstract: A flat tire (2) according to the present invention includes a load support layer (12) positioned on an inside in an axial direction of a sidewall (6). The tire (2) further includes a belt (14) constituted by an inner belt ply (40) and an outer belt ply (42), and a full band (16) substantially covering a whole surface on an outside in a radial direction of the belt (14). The full band (16) is formed by a cord and a topping rubber. When a tensile load of 50N is applied, the cord has an elongation of 3.0% or less. The tire (2) may include a center band which has a smaller width in the axial direction than the width of the full band (16) and is laminated on the full band (16) in the vicinity of an equator (CL).
