  • Patent number: 9140352
    Abstract: A differential gear for a vehicle including a pair of pinion gears and a pair of side gears meshed with the pair of pinion gears at a right angle. In order to improve the strength of the pinion gears and the side gears, less teeth are provided, and the size of each tooth is increased. The reference cone angle and the cone distance may be varied in accordance with the gear ratio, which may make it necessary to increase the size of a differential case that houses the gears. For front-drive vehicles, which is greatly limited in terms of space it may be difficult to suppress an increase in dimension of the differential gear. Accordingly, provided is a compact gearing that has improved strength in the pinion and side gears.

  • Patent number: 5557096
    Abstract: An electronic device intended for use as a tag to be attached to identify contents of the container to which it is attached. In particular, the present invention relates to an electronic tag which has a facility for storing delivery information and is equipped with a responding means for transmitting the delivery information stored therein in response to a query signal received from an interrogating apparatus. Codes, including items such as the names and addresses of the destination and the sender, and a sorting code are written into predetermined blanks of a delivery label, and into a memory. The memory responds to a query by transmitting the sorting information to allow automated sorting. The tag may be initiated only when torn, to extend battery shelf life.
