  • Patent number: 7779882
    Abstract: An apparatus for manufacturing for a rubber sheet reinforced with a cord, it consists of a first cylinder formed to wrap around a rubber coated cord on a surface of the cylinder by rotating centering an axis of the cylinder and a second cylinder that is a smaller cylinder diameter than a cylinder diameter of the first cylinder and is established in parallel aligning a cylinder axis direction to the first cylinder, spirally winding continuously a great number of rubber coated cords on the surface of the cylinder contacting with each other by transferring the rubber coated cord from the first cylinder to the second cylinder.

  • Patent number: 6969439
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a belt material for tire, comprising the steps of spirally winding a ribbon, having a plurality of linear cords disposed longitudinally and coated with rubber, on the outer peripheral surface of a drum at specified pitches while the drum is rotated, sticking the side edges of the wound ribbon to each other so as to form a cylindrical wound body, and a linearly moving rotating blade in the axial direction of the drum in contact with a spiral blade groove formed in the drum at specified pitches while the drum is rotated so as to cut the wound body spirally so as to form a belt material having a specified width and a cord inclination angle.

  • Patent number: 6913058
    Abstract: The peripheral length (M) dimension of the outer peripheral surface of drums (35, 36) is set equal to the width (W) dimension of body ply materials (46A, 46B) used for tires or integral multiples thereof. The wrapping length (L) of the wrapper (40) in the direction of the length of the drum is set equal to the length dimension (L1) of the body ply materials (46A, 46B) used for tires. A ribbon (39) of predetermined width dimension in the form of a cord having a rubber covering applied thereto is produced. The ribbon (39) is spirally wound on the outer peripheral surface of the drums (35, 36) and the lateral edges of the ribbon are bonded together, thus producing the wrapper (40). The wrapper (40) is cut along a gentle curve which is substantially orthogonal to the direction of the length of the ribbon, thus providing the body ply materials (46A, 46B).

  • Patent number: 6752896
    Abstract: A method of detaching a film of material (2) from the surface (5) of a substrate (1). An outlet (11) of a fluid delivery device (10) is engaged with an aperture (7, 8) in the substrate (1) from the opposite side of the substrate (1) from the surface (5) to which the film (2) is attached. Fluid is passed out of the outlet (11) and through the aperture (7, 8) to generate a detaching force between the film of material (2) and the surface (5) adjacent to the aperture (7, 8).

  • Publication number: 20010000481
    Abstract: A bristle sub-assembly includes first and second base strings and a plurality of polymeric monofilaments connected to and extending between the first and second base strings. The polymeric monofilaments form a first arched row when the first and second base strings are brought together. Several types and configurations of brushes are made using either arched bristles or combinations of arched and straight bristles.

  • Patent number: 5749988
    Abstract: A silicon die, such as an integrated circuit, is reworkably bonded to a copper heat spreader. The silicon-copper bond exhibits high compliance under conditions of thermal stress even though there is a significant thermal coefficient of expansion difference between silicon and copper. A compliant adhesive is applied to the surface of one of the silicon die and the copper heat spreader and is cured. Thereafter, a thermoplastic adhesive is applied to bond the silicon die to the copper heat spreader. A composite bond is thereby produced, including a highly compliant layer and a thermoplastic layer. The die may be reworked by heating the thermoplastic adhesive until the bond begins to soften and the die is released.

  • Patent number: 5449430
    Abstract: The method of manufacturing a plurality of bundles of semipermeable hollow fibers for a membrane device from a sheet of fibers (19) formed by winding a fiber or a stranded set of fibers (11) on a drum (1, 2) consists in:cutting the sheet of fibers (19) on the drum (1, 2) along a line of cut that is substantially parallel to the axis of the drum (1, 2);laying out the sheet of fibers (19) on a plane (14);rolling up the sheet of fibers (19) in a direction perpendicular to the line of cut to form a single bundle of fibers (45); andcutting up the single bundle of fibers (45) into a plurality of bundles for a membrane device.
