  • Publication number: 20190275754
    Abstract: A preform figuring method includes mounting and stacking sheet-shape fibrous preparations that have been or are yet to be impregnated with a thermosetting resin on a figuring die that has first and second figuring surfaces at least either one of which is a curved surface and making a preform for a composite material which has a curved surface that corresponds to the curved surface of the figuring die as a stack of the fibrous preparations which has layers by bending the fibrous preparations mounted on the first figuring surface onto the second figuring surface. At least a fraction of the layers that constitute the stack are formed by mounting sheet-shape fibrous preparations on the first figuring surface or the fibrous preparation adjacent in a stacking direction so that the fibrous preparations partly overlap and bending portions of the fibrous preparations mounted so as to overlap onto the second figuring surface.

  • Publication number: 20190272952
    Abstract: A magnetic core includes a winding core and first and second flanges connected to the winding core. First and second terminal electrodes are connected to a lead frame. The first flange is bonded to the first and second terminal electrodes. Third and fourth terminal electrodes are bonded to the second flange. First and second insulation-coated conductive wires are wound about the winding core. The first and second insulation-coated conductive wires are connected to the first and second terminal electrodes and the third and fourth terminal electrodes. The lead frame is bent so as to rotate the magnetic core by 90 degrees with respect to the lead frame. A magnetic plate is bonded to the magnetic core. The magnetic core is removed from the lead frame by removing the first and second terminal electrodes from the lead frame, thereby providing a common-mode choke coil. The common-mode choke coil having stable electrical performance is produced efficiently by the above method.

  • Publication number: 20180023179
    Abstract: A method for producing a plug includes: a step of preparing a plug base metal having a concave portion along a circumferential direction in an outer peripheral surface; and an arc spraying step of spraying a spraying wire rod material onto the outer peripheral surface of the plug base metal by arc spraying to form films containing Fe and Fe oxides on the outer peripheral surface of the plug base metal. The arc spraying step includes: a separating step of separating the outer peripheral surface of the plug base metal into a plurality of regions along an axial direction; and a step of performing arc spraying separately in each of the regions. In the separating step, a boundary between the regions is set at the concave portion. In this way, peeling of films at a connecting portion is prevented, and the lifetime of the plug can be increased.
