  • Patent number: 10240642
    Abstract: A film transfer tool that can be restored to a normal use state easily even though a small degree of sticking takes place in a transfer tape includes a supply bobbin, a take-up bobbin, a supply-side rotational shaft that is fixed to the supply bobbin, a take-up side rotational shaft that is fixed to the take-up bobbin, a ratchet shaft that is connected rotationally to the supply-side rotational shaft, a first rotational connection mechanism that connects the supply-side rotational shaft and the take-up side rotational shaft together rotationally and which includes a first clutch and a second rotational connection mechanism that connects the ratchet shaft and the take-up side rotational shaft together rotationally via a locking claw that is a ratchet rotational member. A ratio of a rotation speed of the ratchet rotational member to a rotation speed of the ratchet shaft is set to be greater than one.

  • Patent number: 10150640
    Abstract: A coating film transfer tool has a head part in order to provide a coating film transfer tool that is capable of reducing operation failure of an internal mechanism such as a rotation transmission mechanism, and improving feeling of use. The head part is provided with a transfer roller for transferring a coating film layer of a transfer tape T to a transferred surface by abutting on a back side of the transfer tape T. In addition, the head part is provided with a debris removal roller for removing debris of the coating film layer of the transfer tape T adhering to the transfer roller. The debris removal roller is disposed at a rear of the transfer roller and is arranged in close proximity to or in contact with the transfer roller.

  • Patent number: 9790049
    Abstract: To provide a device for transferring a coated film in which a transfer unit can be protected well enough, a lid is not obstructive during the use of the device, and costs of production can be kept low. The device for transferring a coated film includes a hollow case having an opening formed therein. The case contains a sliding member 200 on which a first spool 300 for feeding a length of tape and a second spool 400 for taking up the tape are supported by their respective shafts, the sliding member 200 including a transfer unit 250 for transferring the tape. A control piece 220, which is a part of the sliding member 200, is exposed outside of the case through a guide slot formed in the case. The opening is opened and closed using a lid 500. When the control piece 220 is pushed ahead, the lid 500 is rotated and housed in the case. The transfer unit is moved to the outside of the case through the opening which is not covered with anything.

  • Publication number: 20160289032
    Abstract: A film transfer tool 10 has a case main body 5 and a head unit 30 that is provided at a distal end of the case main body 5. The head unit 30 includes a head main body 31 and a head support member 32. The head main body 31 supports on the head support member 32 so as to rotate back and forth. A transfer projecting portion is brought into abutment with a rear surface of a transfer tape T to thereby transfer a transfer layer of the transfer tape T on to a transfer receiving surface. The head main body 31 includes side rollers rotatable back and forth that are positioned individually at two locations lying outwards of both side edges of the transfer tape T. A support shaft of the side rollers is provided so as to be spaced apart from the transfer tape T.

  • Patent number: 8333751
    Abstract: A medical container (1) includes a bag-like container body (10) made up of two flexible sheets (12a, 12b). At least one of a pair of long-side sealed areas (11La, 11Lb) formed by the two sheets being bonded together is provided with a sealed protruding portion (20a, 21a, 20b, 21b) protruding toward the other long-side sealed area such that the spacing between the pair of long-side sealed areas is locally narrowed. A crease (30a, 31a, 30b, 31b) passing through the sealed protruding portion is formed in the sheets when a liquid substance has been injected into the container body in a volume greater than or equal to 10% of a defined volume of the container body and the medical container is hung. Accordingly, it is possible to know the exact amount of a liquid substance in the container by using a scale provided on the sheets constituting the container even if a crease is formed in the sheets due to the liquid substance being in the container.

  • Publication number: 20120067459
    Abstract: A cap (13) to be mounted to a mouth part of a main container unit of a nutritional supplement container (10) is provided for flowing out a liquid substance filled in the main container unit. The main container unit includes a thin film (16) that is attached to the mouth part so as to seal the interior of the main container unit. The cap can take a first mounted state and a second mounted state with respect to the mouth part. In the first mounted state, the mounted state of the cap with respect to the mouth part is held in a state where an end surface of a hollow nozzle (22) of the cap is located not in contact with the thin film or in contact with the thin film but not pressing the thin film. In the second mounted state, the mounted state of the cap with respect to the mouth part is held in a state where the thin film is broken by the hollow nozzle and the hollow nozzle is located inside the mouth part.

  • Publication number: 20110180566
    Abstract: A spout (4) that is attached to a pouch-like bag and through which the contents filled in the bag are discharged, the spout includes: a tubular portion (49) in which a through hole (12) is formed and from a leading end of which the contents are discharged; and a rib (20) that extends from the inner circumferential surface of the tubular portion (9) towards the central axis side (13) of the through hole (12). A hole (21) surrounded by the edge of the extended rib (20) is formed in the part where the rib (20) is formed. This configuration makes it easy to secure the strength of the rib (20) and is advantageous in preventing breakage and deformation of the rib (20). Thus, accidental insertion of connecting needles can be prevented with more certainty.

  • Publication number: 20110144596
    Abstract: A spout (4) that can be attached to a liquid container and through which contents with which the liquid container is filled are discharged, the spout including: a tubular portion (9) in which a through hole (12) is formed and from a leading end of which the content is discharged; and ribs (20) that partition the through hole (12). When the tubular portion (9) is seen from the leading end side, the through hole (12) is divided into at least three parts by the ribs (20). Thus, the strength of the ribs (20) is easily secured, which is advantageous in preventing breakage or deformation of the ribs (20), and also erroneous piercing with a connecting needle is reliably prevented.
