The object of the present invention is to provide a blower including a bearing structure wherein the number of components is reduced, the cost for manufacturing can be reduced, and the diameter of the shaft can be increased. The bearing structure is good at its durability, eliminates or reduces the rotational run out, and provides superior quietness. The blower of the present invention having an impeller adapted to be rotated upon energizing the blower comprising; a bearing device for supporting a rotational center portion of the impeller, the bearing device including; a sleeve, a stepped shaft including a larger diameter portion and a reduced diameter portion provided at one end thereof, the first inner raceway groove formed at an appropriate position around the outer peripheral surface of the larger diameter portion, the first outer raceway groove formed on an inner peripheral surface of the sleeve so as to correspond with the first inner raceway groove, balls of the first row interposed between the first and second grooves, an inner ring slidably fit over the reduced diameter portion, the second inner raceway groove formed around an outer peripheral surface of the inner ring, the second outer raceway groove formed on the inner peripheral surface of the sleeve so as to correspond with the second inner raceway groove, balls of the second row interposed between the second inner and outer raceway grooves, a stop ring provided around the inner periphery of the distal end of the reduced diameter portion, and a pre-loading spring interposed between the stop ring and an end surface of the inner ring to provide a suitable amount of pre-loading force to the inner ring.

Freewheel for a bicycle

A freewheel is provided for mounting a plurality of sprockets on an axle of a bicycle. The freewheel basically includes an inner tubular body, an outer tubular body coaxially mounted on the inner tubular body with a bearing assembly rotatably coupling the inner tubular body to the outer tubular body. A one-way clutch is coupled between the inner tubular body and the outer tubular body to allow one-way rotation between the inner and outer tubular bodies. In the preferred embodiment, seven sprockets are mounted on the exterior of the outer tubular body. The bearing assembly has a pair of ball bearing races of the same diameter located at one end. An outer ball race or housing and a side plate are utilized in conjunction with the inner tubular body to fixedly secure the first and second ball bearings on the exterior surface of the inner tubular body. The inner tubular body with the bearings is then fixedly coupled to the outer tubular body so that the outer tubular body can rotate relative to the inner tubular body. The one-way clutch includes a pair of pawls attached to the inner tubular body and a set of ratchet teeth formed on the inner tubular body. The ratchet teeth are rotated between splines that are formed on the exterior surface of the outer body so as to maximize strength and minimize material. The outer tubular body has a step-shaped configuration with a plurality of abutment stoppers formed on the splines of the largest section such that some of the sprockets are installed from one direction and the other sprockets are installed in a second direction.

Motor-driven wheel drive device

The invention provides a motor-driven wheel drive device in which the durability of a wheel bearing is increased, the weight and size thereof are reduced, and the disassembly and reassembly thereof is taken into account. [MEANS FOR SOLVING PROBLEMS] This motor-driven wheel drive device comprises a drive part (4) having an electric motor (M) driving a planetary speed reduction gear (2) installed in the wheel bearing (1) and a rotating member (17). The wheel bearing (1) further comprises a hub wheel (6) on which an inside rolling surface (6a) is formed, an inner ring (7) press-fitted to the hub wheel, an outer member (8) in which double rows of outside rolling surfaces (8a) are formed, and rolling elements (9). The planetary speed reduction gear (2) further comprises a sun gear (3) formed in a rotating member (17), a plurality of planetary gears (12) disposed between the outer member (8) and the sun gear (3), and carrier pins (14) pivotally supporting these planetary gears on a connection shaft (13). The drive part (4) further comprises the electric motor (M) releasably disposed on the outer member (8) and the rotating member (17). The connection shaft (13) is connected to the hub wheel (6) through a serration, and the rotation of the electric motor (M) is transmitted to the hub wheel (6) through the rotating member (17) and the planetary speed reduction gear (2).

Compact turbocharger

The use of anti-friction ball bearings in a unique arrangement does not require the use of lubricating oil from the internal combustion engine lubricating system and permits close coupling of the bearings and a compact turbocharger. A turbocharger bearing housing forms a coolant jacket with an inner bearing engaging portion that has two bearing engagement surfaces engaged with the outer races of two anti-friction bearings whose inner races carry rotating shaft, turbine and compressor of the turbocharger. The anti-friction bearings are, preferably, angular contact ball bearings, and the two bearing engagement surfaces of the bearing housing are closely spaced, providing a turbocharger shaft of minimal length and substantially reducing the thermal expansion of the shaft. The coolant jacket protects the anti-friction bearings from exposure to the extreme heat of the exhaust gas driven turbine, notwithstanding their increased proximity due to the shortened turbocharger shaft. In addition, an external motor-generator may be carried by the compact turbocharger, and its motor may be connected to the turbocharger rotor assembly by a permanent, solid connector and stay connected throughout the entire operating range of the turbocharger. In such assembly, the electronic motor-generator control is mounted on the motor housing and energizes the motor from battery power during the engine acceleration period up to approximately the torque peak speed; thereafter, the control changes to a generator mode when excess energy is available in the engine exhaust gas.

Automatic centering ball sealing mechanism restraining fluid exciting force

The invention provides an automatic centering ball sealing mechanism restraining fluid exciting force. The automatic centering ball sealing mechanism restraining fluid exciting force comprises an outer shell with the inner surface provided with a spherical raceway, a sealing block with the outer surface provided with at least one raceway and a rotor in sealing connection with the sealing block. At least one row of balls are further arranged between each raceway of the sealing block and the spherical raceway of the outer shell. Each raceway corresponds to one row of balls. Each ball makes point contact with the spherical raceway of the outer shell. Each ball makes arc face contact with the corresponding raceway of the sealing block. The sealing block surrounds and is sealed to the outer surface of the rotor and deflects along with the rotor. The automatic centering ball sealing mechanism has the beneficial effects that by means of the automatic centering ball sealing mechanism restraining fluid exciting force, the fluid exciting force caused by rotor inclination or deflection deformation can be reduced, and accordingly the fluid exciting resisting capability of the automatic centering ball sealing mechanism can be improved.
