  • Publication number: 20220382192
    Abstract: A belt device includes a secured member, a belt, a pressure rotator, and lubricant. The belt has an endless shape and slides on a slide surface of the secured member. The belt has an inner portion having an elastic power of 55% or more and a sliding surface sliding on the slide surface of the secured member. The sliding surface has a surface roughness smaller than a surface roughness of the slide surface of the secured member. The pressure rotator presses the secured member via the belt to form a nip between the belt and the pressure rotator. The lubricant is interposed between the sliding surface of the belt and the slide surface of the secured member.

  • Patent number: 7669277
    Abstract: A connector (20) for securing a wiper blade to a wiper arm includes a base member (21) including a forward upper portion (32) and a rearward upper portion (33); a locking member (22) for holding either a U-hook portion (12) or a side pin (11) mounted to the base member (21); and a flexible connecting member (23) connecting the locking member (22) to the base member (21). To attach the connector (20) to the side pin (11), the connector is rotated toward the side pin (11) from the opposite side of the side pin (11) so that the side pin (11) fits into a recess (33A) of the rearward upper portion (33). The side pin (11) also fits into the recesses (47 and 48) of the locking member (22) so that the side pin (11) is held between the base member (21) and the locking member (22). The connector enables the firm securing of the wiper blade to the wiper arm so as to restrict vibrations between the wiper blade and the wiper arm.
