  • Patent number: 6243125
    Abstract: An optical printer head capable of minimizing production of a ghost by incidence of light reflected on a filter holding hole. Light emitted from a light source is reflected out of a maximum allowable incident angle to minimize generation of a ghost due to incidence of reflected light on a selfoc lens array while reducing a size of a filter holding hole for holding each of filters therein. Also, a peripheral surface of the filter holding hole may be rendered rough, to thereby provide a scattering surface, resulting in preventing repeated reflection of light emitted from the light source on the peripheral surface of the filter holding hole.

  • Patent number: 6226028
    Abstract: An optical printer head capable of preventing catching between a filter holder and a luminous tube to prevent production of dust and attaining replacement of the luminous tube without exposing filters to an ambient atmosphere. A filter holder is arranged separately from a light source and an selfoc lens array, to thereby prevent production of dust from the filter holder due to contact of the filter holder with the light source and selfoc lens array. A base is arranged so as to receive only the filter holder therein, to thereby prevent the filters held on the filter holder from being exposed to an ambient atmosphere, resulting in dust being kept from adhering to the filters. A pair of light passages are formed on a light path and closed with a light-permeable cover to sealedly close the base, to thereby prevent dust from intruding into the base during replacement of the light source.

  • Patent number: 6217296
    Abstract: A variable displacement pump includes pump bodies, a cam ring, first and second fluid pressure chambers, a rotor, a driving shaft, a pump chamber, a compression coil spring, a metering restrictor portion, and a control valve. A plunger damper is formed to incorporate the compression coil spring such that a distal end of the plunger damper abuts against a side portion of the cam ring in the second fluid pressure chamber. A small hole constituting the metering restrictor portion is formed at such a position that it is opened/closed by a slidable motion of the plunger damper during a swing motion of the cam ring, and such that it is partitioned from the second fluid pressure chamber, so that an opening area of the small hole changes in an interlocking manner to the swing motion of the cam ring.
