Shipboard winch with computer-controlled motor

A winch is employed for deploying a probe to a precise depth within a water column for making and recording physical measurement within such water column. More particularly, the winch rapidly unspools a line from an underway vessel, while maintaining minimal but constant line tension, as a probe, tethered to such line, descends within the water column in a “near” free-fall to a predetermined depth and then stops.

Cabin front structure of automobile

When a front pillar on a driver's seat side is deformed to a vehicle rear side due to short overlap collision on the driver's seat side of an automobile, an instrument panel reinforcement bridged between left and right front pillars is bent at a long hole serving as a starting point and provided on an outer side of a column bracket in a vehicle width direction. Due to this, a steering column, which is mounted on the instrument panel reinforcement through the column bracket, is restrained from being displaced due to a load from the front pillar..

Rear structure of front side member

A rear structure of a front side member includes a front side member to which collision energy is delivered at the time of a head-on collision of a vehicle body, a front side rear lower member configured to extend from the front side member to a center floor panel formed at a rear end of the front side member, and a front side rear upper reinforcement member configured to extend from the front side member to a front pillar lower member and suppress bending of the front side member occurring due to a moment in a pitch direction. Thus, it is possible to prevent the front side member from being deformed upward by delivering the collision energy from the front side member to the front side rear lower member and the front side rear upper reinforcement member at the time of the head-on collision..

Laser beam machining apparatus with high-speed positioning function

When an operation is performed in a direction (z-axis direction) in which a machining head is brought closer to workpiece, a numerical controller that controls a laser beam machine avoids a collision of the machining head with the workpiece by switching to gap control when a gap sensor detects a gap amount between the machining head and the workpiece. At this point, whether to perform the operation to bring the machining head closer to the workpiece by gap control using a detection value of the gap sensor or by moving the machining head to a position determined by parameters can be selected using a mode switching unit..
