  • Patent number: 11008908
    Abstract: An oil passageway structure for internal combustion engines includes a cylinder head having an inter-bearing wall fluid communication oil passage for providing fluid communication between a plurality of bearing walls to allow oil to flow therebetween. The cylinder head further includes a bearing wall oil passage branched from the inter-bearing wall fluid communication oil passage to supply oil to a bearing surfaces of at least one of the bearing walls. The inter-bearing wall fluid communication oil passage is defined in one of facing side walls. The bearing wall oil passageway is defined in at least one of the bearing walls. The oil passageway structure is thus made up of a reduced number of parts, can be assembled with a reduced number of man-hours, can lead to productivity growth, and is inexpensive to manufacture.

  • Patent number: 9956343
    Abstract: The pharmaceutical injection device of the present invention comprises a cartridge holder, a main case, a piston, a motor, an opening component, an open/closed detection switch, and a controller. The motor drives the piston in either an insertion direction in which the piston is inserted into a pharmaceutical cartridge, or a pull-out direction in which the piston is pulled out of the pharmaceutical cartridge. The opening component opens the cartridge holder in conjunction with the movement of the piston in the pull-out direction. The open/closed detection switch detects whether the cartridge holder is open or closed. When the open/closed detection switch detects that the cartridge holder is open, the controller controls the motor so as to stop the piston.

  • Patent number: 9929607
    Abstract: A compressor includes a hermetic container, a compression mechanism section disposed in the hermetic container, and a motor disposed in the hermetic container to drive the compression mechanism section. The motor has a rotor and a stator disposed so as to surround an outer periphery of the rotor. The stator includes a stator core and oil passage grooves. The stator core has a hollow circular cylindrical section and a plurality of circumferentially arranged teeth protruding radially inward from an outer peripheral surface of the hollow circular cylindrical section. The oil passage grooves are located radially outside of the teeth. The oil passage grooves are formed by cutting an outer peripheral surface of the hollow circular cylindrical section.

  • Patent number: 9861768
    Abstract: A pharmaceutical injection device may comprise a main body case in the interior of which a pharmaceutical syringe can be mounted; a drive means that is provided inside the main body case and pushes out the pharmaceutical inside the pharmaceutical syringe through a syringe needle; a cover that opens and closes an opening on the side of the main body case where the syringe needle is mounted; an outside air temperature sensor that measures a first temperature, which is the temperature outside the main body case; a display component; and a controller that controls the drive means and the display component and acquires the first temperature at predetermined intervals. When the cover is closed, the controller causes the display component to display information about the storage state of the pharmaceutical in the mounted pharmaceutical syringe on the basis of the first temperature.
