Abstract

In order to avoid subsequent assembly work for setting a predetermined height of a seal (24) on a component (29) which contains a flange (25) and an elastic sealing profile (26) carried by the latter, the flange (25) is produced as a separate part and attached to the component (29) using a gauge in a position that ensures the predetermined height of the seal (24).

Description

The invention relates to a method according to the preamble of claim 1 and a preferred use of this method.

Considering the preferred use of the invention, namely automotive engineering and in particular covering the gap between a boot lid and one of it facing the opening edge of a trunk, one strives for the sake of Reduction of the variety of parts as the sealing flange carrying the elastic sealing profile to use an already existing component of the component in question. On this sealing flange is then simply plugged on the elastic sealing profile. A disadvantage of this known method is the fact that a whole series of Tolerances that ultimately occur at the location of the in the defined application Add the lid facing area of the elastic sealing profile and not there can lead to more tolerable tolerances. If the height of the seal is too low, it lies the elastic sealing profile not with the required force or possibly not at all on the lid in its closed position Illustration again to the preferred application of the invention to come back); if, on the other hand, the height of the seal is too large, it exercises a relatively large one Force on the lid, which can impair its secure closing.

These difficulties have to be eliminated through laborious reworking especially in a series production, as it represents automobile production is undesirable.

The invention is based on the object of creating a generic method, that allows compliance with a specified height of the seal without rework.  

The inventive solution to this problem consists in the characterizing Features of the main claim describe advantageous embodiments of the method claims 2, 3 and 4, while claim 5 relates to the preferred use or Application of the procedure relates.

So while in the prior art, as already explained above, as a sealing flange an existing flange that is in any case one-piece with the component the invention deliberately provides a flange manufactured as an independent part, using an apprenticeship (which generally includes any setting tool for the height of the seal or the required position of the seal flange is understood) is attached to the component by welding or lasering. It can the flange before attaching the elastic sealing profile to the Component to be positioned; then the teaching is at a predetermined level Seal ensuring position of the flange turned off. But it is also possible Push the elastic sealing profile onto the sealing flange before fixing it on the respective component, for example a sealing channel assigned to the cover; then the teaching is made up to the predetermined height of the entire seal Sealing flange and sealing profile, turned off.

The invention is explained below with reference to the drawing, the figures of which represent cross sections through a motor vehicle in the region of the rear cover. Fig. 1 relates to the prior art, Fig. 2 to an embodiment or an application of the invention.

Referring first to Fig. 1, so limiting the side panel 1 a access to the trunk of the vehicle enabling opening which can be closed or released by the lid 2, which is shown here in its closed position. In a manner known per se and therefore not shown in detail, the cover can be pivoted in the region of its front edge in the vehicle by means of a hinge arrangement 3 , supported by a gas spring 4 , between its closed and its release position. All of this is state of the art.

Between the mutually facing edges or edges of side part 1 and cover 2 there is an unavoidable gap 5 which must be sealed against the interior of the trunk by means of the sealing channel 6 and the seal 7 . The flange 8 serves as a seal together with the sealing profile 9 attached to it; Both such sealing profiles and possibilities for attaching and fixing sealing profiles are well known to the person skilled in the art.

So that on the one hand a secure seal is provided by the seal 7 , but on the other hand the seal does not oppose the closing of the cover 2 too great forces, the apex region 10 of the sealing profile 9 must have a predetermined height h. The sets in the illustrated with reference to Figure 1 the prior art requires that subsequently all be of the sealing profile 9 be added tolerances in the apex region. 10 - height of the sealing flange 8, the height of the profile 9, the depth of the plug-on 11 in this - can be reduced to an acceptable level . Such individual rework is extremely undesirable and carries the risk of inaccuracy, since the conditions in each vehicle are different.

, FIG. 2 serves to illustrate the inventive method in the same application. The side part is designated 20 , the cover 21 , the hinge 22 and the gas spring 23 . The seal 24 , which corresponds to the seal 7 in FIG. 1, is in turn formed by a sealing flange 25 and an elastic sealing profile 26 plugged onto it, but the sealing flange 25 here - in contrast to the prior art - forms an independent part that , as indicated at 27 , by welding (spot welding) or lasers to a bent mounting flange 28 of the sealing channel 29 .

This fastening step can take place before the sealing profile 26 is attached to the sealing flange 25 ; the teaching used to set a position of the sealing flange 25 which ensures the predetermined height of the apex region 30 of the sealing profile 26 then relates to the position of the sealing flange 25 alone. But in view of the detection also in the tolerances in the region of the sealing profile 26, it may be expedient, prior to attachment of the sealing flange aufzustecken 25 to the mounting flange 28, the sealing profile 26 already in its final position on the sealing flange 25 and to fix necessary. Then the teaching used relates to the overall height of the sealing arrangement 24 .

In order to ensure sealing of the sealing channel 29 also at the location of the fastening 27 of the sealing flange 25 , a fine seal known per se in the form of a sealing bead is provided at 31 .

The invention accordingly provides a generic method, the one Safe adjustment of the height of a seal is permitted while avoiding rework.
