Abstract

A component connection comprising a first vehicle component having a male fixation member projecting from the first vehicle component, partially or wholly in the form of a ball or wholly or partially spherical in shape, and a second vehicle component having a female one provided for receiving the male fixation member Fuser has, wherein the male fixing element is inserted in an insertion direction in the female fixing element. The male fixing element has an oversize with respect to the female fixing element substantially transversely to the insertion direction, so that the two vehicle components are detachably clamped to one another on the fixing elements.

Description

  • The present invention relates to a component connection according to the preamble of claim 1 and a method according to the preamble of claim 20.
  • Such a component connection is from the older, not previously published German patent application DE 10 2009 049 602.5 known.
  • In the mass production of vehicle bodies are a variety of individual body parts and attachments, such. B. mounts etc. largely fully automated assembled. In a joining process, two or more body parts are initially positioned by means of complex clamping and receiving technology relative to each other and then connected together, for. Example by welding, clinching, or other joining methods.
  • In the above mentioned DE 10 2009 049 602.5 It's about the loose pre-fixing of two components to be firmly connected to each other. On the one component, a protruding spherical positive locking element is provided, which in a z. B. keyhole-shaped recess of the second component engages. The two components to be joined together are thus assembled and then moved relative to each other, resulting in a positive fit by moving. Due to the positive connection, the two components are prefixed relative to each other and can then be firmly connected to each other, for. B. by welding.
  • The object of the invention is to provide a component connection concept, by means of which components, in particular body parts of vehicles and attachments, very easy (pre) can be mounted.
  • This object is solved by the features of claim 1 and 20, respectively. Advantageous embodiments and further developments of the invention can be found in the dependent claims.
  • The starting point of the invention is a component connection, which connects a first vehicle component with a second vehicle component. The term "vehicle component" is to be interpreted very broadly. In principle, it comprises all types of components which are to be connected to a vehicle, in particular body components.
  • The first of the two vehicle components has a "male fixing element" protruding from the first vehicle component, which partially or completely has the shape of a ball or dome or wholly or partly a ball-like shape. The term "ball-like" is also very broad to interpret and not limited to the mathematical concept of a spherical geometry. Ball-like z. B. "convex" mean. Preferably, the spherical or ball-shaped male fixation element is rotationally symmetric with respect to a normal direction of one or both vehicle components at the location of the male fixation element. The terms "ball-like" or "ball-like" generally include "round" or "domed", in particular "convex" geometries ". Such a shaped male fixing can be easily assembled with the second vehicle component. By a round, edgeless geometry of the male fixing element minimizes the risk that the two vehicle components accidentally misjudged when mating.
  • The second vehicle component has a "female fixation element" provided for receiving the male fixation element. The term "female fixation" is also to be interpreted extremely broad. This refers to constructive designs that make it possible to introduce the male fixing in an insertion direction in the female fixation.
  • The essence of the invention is that the male fixation element has an excess with respect to the female fixation element. The oversize may consist in particular in a direction which is transverse to the insertion direction. Due to the excess, the two vehicle components are releasably clamped together when mated to the fixing elements.
  • The vehicle components can therefore, as is known from plug-in kits from the toy sector, simply plugged together and in this way relative to each other (pre-) fixed.
  • Vehicle components, such. B. individual body parts, can be interconnected by one or more such component connections, ie (pre) to be mounted. The individual components merely need to be "plugged together". Depending on the nature of the vehicle components and the constructively provided "clamping force", the two vehicle components can be connected to each other exclusively via the component connection according to the invention or additionally via one or more other connection techniques, such. As welding, screws, rivets, clinching, etc. In particular, such joining techniques are also considered, which can be produced from a single component side ("one-sided connection method"). By way of example, laser welding is mentioned here, in which, in contrast to spot welding methods, the "component assembly" is not used from both sides a welding tongs must be accessible, but can be worked from a single page.
  • A positive connection in the insertion direction between the fixing elements can be provided. However, such a positive connection does not necessarily have to be provided. In other words, it is not necessary to provide an undercut of the male and female fixation elements.
  • The female fixing element may be formed by a "through hole" provided in the second vehicle component. The term "through hole" is to be interpreted broadly and is not limited per se to a particular hole geometry. The through hole may, for. B. circular or have a deviating from a circular geometry, such. Example, a substantially square geometry, a triangular, quadrangular or polygonal geometry, wherein the "corners" may be rounded.
  • Since the male fixing element has a certain oversize with respect to the female fixing element transversely to the insertion direction, the two fixing elements - or at least one of the two fixing elements - must have a certain "minimum elasticity", so that the mating is made possible and after the mating together a sufficient clamping force persists.
  • In the male fixation may be z. B. to act a ball of solid material, in particular a steel or aluminum ball. Such a "solid sphere" has a comparatively low elasticity. The minimum elasticity required for a mating can then be achieved by a corresponding design of the female fixing element.
  • It can be provided that the two vehicle components after mating with the fixing elements in directions which are transverse to the insertion direction, connected without play, d. H. are immovably fixed relative to each other.
  • As already mentioned, the two vehicle components can be fixed (pre) to one another via a plurality of such or similar component connections. Accordingly, at least one further male fixing element can be provided on one of the two vehicle components, which also partially or completely has the shape of a ball or partially or completely a ball-like shape and in an or in the same insertion direction as the first male fixation in an associated Another female fixing element can be introduced or introduced, which is provided on the relevant other vehicle component.
  • The at least one further female fixing element may be formed by a slot or by an elongate through hole, in which the further male fixing element is displaceable in a longitudinal direction of the slot or of the elongated through hole.
  • Illustratively speaking, the one "component connection" thus forms a "fixed bearing" and the at least one further component connection forms a "floating bearing". This has the advantage that the two vehicle components to be connected to one another can be "floating" and thus essentially assembled without tension or fixed to one another.
  • According to a development of the invention, at least one bend-elastic clamping element protruding from the second vehicle component is provided on an edge of the through-hole forming the female fixing element. From the outside, the clamping element exerts a clamping force acting essentially transversely to the insertion direction on an outer side of the male fixing element. The clamping element can "engage behind the male fixing element. But this does not necessarily have to be the case. In the case of an undercut occurs when joining, d. H. upon mating of the two fixing elements to a "overpressure" and thus to an audible engagement of the male fixation in or on the female fixation.
  • The clamping element can be a clamping collar extending along the entire edge of the through-hole. Alternatively, only a clamping collar element extending over a peripheral portion may be provided. Further, a plurality of circumferentially spaced clamping collars may be provided along the through-hole, each touching the male fixing member on a peripheral portion or each at a circumferential location. It can also be provided that only a part of the provided clamping collars presses against the male fixing element from the outside.
  • It can be provided that the clamping collar or the clamping collars project or protrude from the second vehicle component in the direction of insertion or against the direction of insertion. The at least one clamping collar need not be bent completely perpendicular with respect to the second vehicle part, but can be made slightly oblique. For example, it can be provided that the at least one clamping collar with the surface of the second vehicle component in the region of the through hole encloses an angle in the range which is in the range between 80 ° and 90 °.
  • The first and / or the second vehicle component may be a sheet-metal component, in particular a body component. The female fixation forming. Through hole may be punched out of the second vehicle component. The clamping collar may be a "bent" or "raised" portion of the punched through-hole.
  • In one or both of the vehicle parts may be in particular deep-drawn parts. The at least one female fixation element, the z. B. may be formed by a through hole can be stamped directly in the thermoforming tool or produced in a subsequent manufacturing step.
  • In the following the invention will be explained in connection with the drawing. Show it:
  • 1 A sheet with a welded steel ball;
  • 2 . 3 a sheet with a through hole with circumferential clamping collar;
  • 4 - 6 various embodiments with different clamping collars; and
  • 7 two floating together fixed components according to the invention.
  • 1 shows a first sheet 1 on which a steel ball 2 is welded on.
  • The 2 . 3 show a second sheet 3 into which a through hole 4 is punched, which is a bent collar 5 has, which acts as a clamping collar. The through hole 4 or the clamping collar 5 have a slightly smaller diameter than the ball 2 , However, the clamping collar is sufficiently elastic, so that the ball in the through hole 4 can be plugged.
  • The through hole 4 can, as in the 2 . 3 shown to have an approximately quadrangular or square shape. In the case of an approximately square Druchgangslochgeometrie, presses the clamping collar 5 punctiform at four spaced approximately 90 ° from each other points from the outside against the ball 2 ,
  • 4 shows the two sheets 1 . 3 in mated condition. The on the sheet 1 fixed ball was from below through the through hole 4 through put. The clamping collar 5 essentially pushes transversely to an insertion direction 6 from the outside against the ball 2 , The two sheets 1 . 3 are thus in directions that are transverse to the insertion device 6 are, fixed and positioned substantially free of play relative to each other.
  • 5 shows an embodiment in which instead of a circumferential clamping collar in the circumferential direction evenly distributed a plurality of tooth-like clamping collar elements 5a . 5b . 5c are provided.
  • In the embodiment of 6 are only two such tooth-like clamping collar elements 5a . 5b provided, which are spaced apart in the circumferential direction about 180 °. The two clamping collar elements 5a . 5b are on opposite sides of the sphere 2 arranged.
  • 7 shows an embodiment in which on a first sheet 1 spaced from each other a first ball 2a and a second ball 2 B are arranged. The two balls 2a . 2 B can on the sheet 1 be welded on.
  • In the second sheet 3 is a first of the ball 2a associated rectangular or square through hole 4a provided, a circumferential clamping collar 5 similar to that in the 2 - 4 is shown. In the sphere of the ball 2a are the two sheets 1 . 3 thus firmly fixed transversely to the insertion relative to each other.
  • At the second through hole 4b however, it is an elongate through hole, with two Klemmkrägen running in the longitudinal direction of the hole 5a . 5b , the opposing sides against the outside of the sphere 2 B to press. At the in 7 As shown arrangement, the sheets are "floating" fixed to each other. Through the slot 4b Tensions between the attachment points are avoided.
  • The two sheets 1 . 3 can simply put together and then z. B. permanently connected by welding firmly together. The thermal expansion occurring during welding is "automatically" compensated due to the floating arrangement of the two sheets.
