  • Patent number: 6808314
    Abstract: The center of a turntable 30 moves around the central axial line of an autoroation disk 20 along the circular orbit C of a smaller diameter than that of an autorotation disk 20. Thus, the turntable 30 revolves both around a center point O and on its own axis in accordance with an autorotation of the autorotation disk 20. A polishing holder 60 holds a connector of an optical fiber polished by a polishing film 41 arranged on the upper plane of the turntable 30. An optical fiber end face polishing machine provided with a memory 85 for storing a control program which allows a control device 80 to execute predetermined polishing steps, the control device 80 being for controlling an autorotation motor 16 of the turntable 30 and a revolution motor 14 thereof.

  • Patent number: 5511441
    Abstract: A locking/unlocking manipulation mechanism for locking and unlocking the locking device of a baby carriage which precludes the collapsing of the carriage. The locking/unlocking manipulation mechanism includes a housing, a pulley rotatably supported in the housing, a wire connected at one end to the pulley and at the other end to the locking device, a manipulation button including a drive plate extending vertically from the main body of the button into the housing and engaged with a portion of the pulley and a sliding prevention stopper slidably disposed in the upper portion of the housing. When the button is urged into the housing the drive plate causes the pulley to rotate to thereby tension the wire and unlock the locking device. The stopper includes a sliding prevention plate extending from the bottom thereof into the housing so that the tip of the prevention plate can selectively contact the drive plate to prevent the button from being moved.
