  • Patent number: 10559237
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for conforming a display panel to a surface of an aircraft structure. The method positions the display panel within a resin barrier that is located on the surface such that a cavity is formed, places a film and the display panel together, and applies a force on the display panel that causes the display panel to conform to the surface of the aircraft structure. The display panel has a shape that changes to a first shape to match a second shape of the surface of the aircraft structure. The method also injects a resin into the cavity while the force is applied, and cures the resin in the cavity while the force is applied to form a cured resin. The cured resin holds the display panel in the first shape and attaches the display panel to the surface of the aircraft structure.

    Abstract: Assembly parts are bonded together, the parts having adhesive surfaces on end surfaces thereof to be joined together, e.g., for bonding together rotor blade half shells to form a rotor blade for a wind turbine. The assembly parts can be bonded together by injection-bonding, an adhesive being injected into an adhesive joint between the adhesive surfaces of the assembly parts.

  • Patent number: 9028737
    Abstract: Provided is a technology with which, when producing a resin molded article, the inside of which is provided with an insert component such as a terminal fitting, it is possible to prevent the insert component from being exposed at an inappropriate position, and to ensure the desired positional accuracy. In an injection molding device, the accuracy of the position of a terminal is improved by allowing a core-back mold to move after a terminal, which is an insert component, has been inserted in a terminal tip holding section of a slide mold. By allowing the core-back mold to move by only a prescribed amount prior to injection molding, a resin wall is formed between the core-back mold and the terminal. The inappropriate exposure and shorting of and the adhesion of foreign substances to, and the like, the terminal can thus be prevented.

  • Publication number: 20150114005
    Abstract: A gas turbine engine having a fan and a bypass duct for discharging airflow from the fan to generate engine thrust. The bypass duct includes a first component and a second component each having a gas washed surface, the first component being positioned adjacent the second component with a gap therebetween. A sealing strip is positioned in the gap between the first component and the second component distal to the gas washed surfaces of the first and second components. A sealant is positioned between the first and second component proximal to the gas washed surfaces of the first and second components, so as to seal the gap between the first component and the second component from airflow through the bypass duct.

  • Patent number: 9007754
    Abstract: A display module includes a first housing, a second housing, a display panel, and a glue. The first housing is disposed on the second housing and has a metal sidewall. A first gap exists between the metal sidewall and a sidewall of the first housing. The display panel is disposed on the first housing and has a side surface facing the sidewall, wherein a second gap exists between the side surface and the inner surface. The glue fills the second gap. A manufacturing method of the display module includes disposing the second housing on the first housing and forming the first gap; providing the glue on the inner face of the sidewall and above the first gap; making the display panel push and graze the glue; disposing the display panel on the first housing and forming the second gap, wherein the glue fills the second gap.

  • Patent number: 9005503
    Abstract: A method of making an electrical stimulation lead includes disposing conductive contacts in a spaced-apart longitudinal arrangement within a mold. A portion of a stylet tube is disposed within the mold, and the stylet tube extends through the conductive contacts. Conductive wires are positioned external to the stylet tube and each contact is coupled to at least one of the wires. A non-conductive material is molded between adjacent pairs of the contacts, around the wires, and over the stylet tube, to form a portion of the lead. This portion includes the contacts, the stylet tube, the wires, and one or more non-conductive spacers formed from the non-conductive material. Finally, the portion of the lead is removed from the mold. Another method includes placing a temporary tube around the conductive contacts and forming spacers by introducing flowable, curable, non-conductive material within the tube and between the conductive contacts.

  • Publication number: 20150077656
    Abstract: In a seal part where a translucent opposite substrate and an element substrate are bonded together, a peripheral member is provided in such a manner as to be buried in a sealing member. This prevents the sealing member from breaking, thus making it possible to make the seal part durable to improve the strength of the panel. Further, an output wiring connected to an electrode pattern of a sensing unit can be protected by being covered with a protective insulating layer. The peripheral member and the protective insulating layer can be formed by the same insulating material. This makes it possible to simplify the process to reduce production costs.
