  • Publication number: 20190302384
    Abstract: Two bundle materials are provided on the outer periphery of a plurality of optical fibers. The bundle materials are twisted back while reversing the winding from front to back and vice versa to thus wind the bundle materials around the plurality of optical fibers. That is, the bundle materials are not wound spirally around the plurality of optical fibers. The bundle materials are bonded at a bonding portion where both bundle materials intersect. The bonding portion is provided along a center line of an optical fiber unit. The bundle materials are arranged in ranges which are each approximately 180° and partitioned by the center line.

  • Patent number: 10407054
    Abstract: When an engine is started by causing a first motor coupled to first drive wheels to motor the engine while a hybrid vehicle is turning with the engine stopped, an electronic control unit controls output torque of a second motor, in such a direction as to curb change of a steering characteristic of the hybrid vehicle due to change of drive torque of the first drive wheels induced by motoring of the engine by the first motor.

  • Publication number: 20190172737
    Abstract: In equipment that supplies a processing liquid on a top surface of a substrate while holding the substrate horizontally in a chamber a generation status of fumes is determined. Specifically, an image of a predetermined imaging area in the chamber is captured. Then, the generation status of fumes in the chamber is determined based on luminance values of the captured image acquired by the capturing of an image. Accordingly, it is possible to quantitatively determine whether a generation status of fumes in a chamber is normal.

  • Publication number: 20190135069
    Abstract: A stabilizer bushing installed on a stabilizer bar is made of two divided parts of rubber or the like to prevent or decrease generation of a gap in a bonding surface. The stabilizer bushing installed on an outer periphery of the stabilizer bar by adhesion includes divided rubber bushings of an upper rubber bushing and a lower rubber bushing. Before adhesion, both end portions of the upper and lower rubber bushings, respectively, in a circumferential direction are tapered so that an overlapping amount between the upper and lower rubber bushings increases toward the outer periphery side of the bushings.

  • Patent number: 6926375
    Abstract: A unit connecting mechanism and box-like unit is disclosed having an engaging unit (4) and a connecting pin (3) which are mounted to the box-like unit (1) to allow a plurality of box-like units (1,1) to be coupled to one another in a vertical direction. A handle (44) is operatively connected to a hook (43) to catch an engaging rod (3a) and is vertically raised to cause a stopper (45) to lock the hook (43) and the engaging rod (3a) in a locked condition, with operation of the handle (44) causing the stopper (45) to move downward to cause the hook disengage from the engaging rod for thereby uncoupling the box-like units (1,1) from one another. As a result, the unit connecting mechanism can be manufactured in a compact structure, providing a capability for a worker to easily and appropriately perform coupling and uncoupling operations of the box-like units.
