  • Patent number: 11090756
    Abstract: An aluminum plate (103) is overlaid on a steel plate (102). A distal end (113) of a button component (101) is pushed in from the obverse surface side of the aluminum plate (103), and the distal end (113) is abutted against the steel plate (102) by applying a first pressure to the button component (101) made of steel without heating. The distal end (113) of the button component (101) and the steel plate (102) are welded by resistance spot welding while applying a second pressure lower than the first pressure to the button component (101).

  • Publication number: 20180197054
    Abstract: A managed article that allows an engraved code to be detected. The engraved code including a plurality of dot dented portions is formed on a managed article. Each of the dot dented portions has a quadrilateral pyramid shape with a coating layer formed on a prior stage dented portion (15) having a quadrilateral pyramid shape. Corner dented portions (25) dented at acute angles outward along a diagonal direction are formed at four corner positions of an opening peripheral edge portion (22) of the prior stage dented portion. This configuration leads to detection of the dot dented portion as a quadrilateral dot. In addition, the present configuration allows a coating material to be introduced into the corner dented portions at the time of the coating, thereby contributing to preventing or reducing inward projection of the coating layer at the corner positions of the dot dented portion.

  • Publication number: 20180174007
    Abstract: Provided is a managed article that allows an engraved code to be excellently detected. An engraved code 11including a plurality of dot dented portions 15 is forced: on a managed article 10. The engraved code 11 includes. An opening peripheral edge portion 22 of each of the dot dented portions 15 has a quadrilateral shape. This configuration leads to detection of the dot dented portion as a quadrilateral dot. Therefore, this configuration allows the engraved code to be excellently detected.

  • Patent number: 9864324
    Abstract: According to an embodiment, an image forming apparatus includes a case having a door which can be opened and closed. A first rotating body, provided in the case, is exposed from the case when the door is opened. A second rotating body, provided in the case, is exposed from the case when the door is opened. The second rotating body forms a nip with the first rotating body. A spacer, detachably provided in the case, separates the first rotating body and the second rotating body when the spacer is attached. The second rotating body forms a nip with the first rotating body when the spacer is detached.

  • Patent number: 9810209
    Abstract: A rear housing includes a first passage extending from an accommodation chamber towards a communication hole of a valve-forming plate. A cylinder block includes a connection portion to be connected to an external device, an outlet space opening towards the connection portion, and a second passage extending from the outlet space towards the communication hole of the valve-forming plate. A discharge passage includes a discharge chamber, the accommodation chamber, the first passage, the communication hole, the second passage, and the outlet space. The flow passage area of the communication hole is larger than at least one of the flow passage area of the first passage and the flow passage area of the second passage. The discharge passage can be designed with high flexibility.

  • Patent number: 9644625
    Abstract: A compressor has suction reed valves each of which includes a fixation portion fixed to the valve base plate, a basal portion that extends from the fixation portion and is separable from the plate, and a valve flap extending from the basal portion toward the distal end to selectively open and close the suction port. Each suction port has a shape elongated in the width direction, which is orthogonal to the longitudinal direction. The width of the basal portion is greater than that of the suction port. Each valve flap includes an opening-closing portion facing the corresponding suction port and stoppers, which project from the ends in the width direction. The side edges in the width direction are continuous from the stoppers to the basal portion to gradually approach the suction port. The cylinder block has pairs of recessed retainers. The stoppers contact the retainers.

  • Patent number: 9535377
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an image forming apparatus has an image carrier, a transfer unit, and a spacer. The image carrier has a toner image carrying surface. The transfer unit transfers a toner image from the toner image carrying surface to a recording medium. The transfer unit includes a transfer roller which forms a nip with the image carrying surface and a contact roller provided coaxially with the transfer roller. The spacer is detachably provided on the transfer unit to separate the image carrier and the transfer unit.
