  • Patent number: 10837541
    Abstract: Provided is a lubricant guiding structure in an automatic transmission in which a baffle plate configured to regulate the movement of a lubricant agitated by a driven sprocket is provided at one side, where an oil pump is located, in the direction of a rotational axis of the driven sprocket. As viewed from the rotational axis direction, a division wall disposed to extend across a chain is provided closer to the chain than a base of the baffle plate. As viewed from the rotational axis direction, the baffle plate is provided with a guide wall extending along a torque transmission-side chain of the chain wound on the driven sprocket. As viewed from the rotational axis-direction, the guide wall includes an inclined portion inclined in the direction coming closer to the chain as the distance to the distal end side decreases.

  • Patent number: 6969224
    Abstract: A communication chamber defined in a body is supplied with a fluid under pressure through a pipe connected to a supply port defined in the body. The fluid under pressure is ejected from the communication chamber through fluid ejection members, which are made of a porous material and mounted on an end face of the body by a plate, toward a workpiece. The workpiece is levitated upwardly and held airborne by the fluid under pressure that is ejected toward the workpiece and the fluid under pressure that flows between the workpiece and the plate.
