Description

本発明は、遊技領域を視認可能にする窓部を備えた可動扉を遊技機本体に対して回動自在に支持する遊技機のヒンジ機構に関する   The present invention relates to a hinge mechanism of a gaming machine that rotatably supports a movable door provided with a window portion that allows a gaming area to be visually recognized with respect to a gaming machine main body.
遊技場に設置される遊技機として、例えば弾球遊技機は、遊技球の打ち出される遊技領域が設けられた遊技盤と、遊技盤が組み込まれる筐体からなる遊技機本体と、遊技機本体の前面を覆う可動扉とから構成されている。可動扉は遊技領域を外部に露呈させる透明なガラス窓を有し、遊技者がガラス窓を通して遊技領域を落下する遊技球の動きを観察できる。可動扉は、遊技機本体に回動自在に支持され、閉じられた状態では施錠装置によってロックされる。また、遊技機の内部で発生した故障の修理等を行うときには、施錠を解除した後に可動扉を開放することができる。   As a gaming machine installed in a game arcade, for example, a ball game machine includes a gaming board provided with a gaming area in which gaming balls are launched, a gaming machine main body including a casing in which the gaming board is incorporated, and a gaming machine main body. It consists of a movable door that covers the front. The movable door has a transparent glass window that exposes the game area to the outside, and the player can observe the movement of the game ball falling through the glass window. The movable door is rotatably supported by the gaming machine body and is locked by a locking device in the closed state. Further, when repairing a failure that has occurred inside the gaming machine, the movable door can be opened after unlocking.
このような遊技機では、新規製品の組み立て又は遊技場から撤去された遊技機を解体することに伴って、ガラス扉の着脱作業が容易に行えるようにそのヒンジ機構が工夫されている。このヒンジ機構には、例えばガラス扉にヒンジ軸(ピボット)として金属製のピンがスライド可能に設けられている。この金属ピンは、例えばL字状に曲げられて主軸部とレバー部とに分けられており、ガラス扉を取り外す際に作業者等がガラス扉の背面に露呈されるレバー部をスライド操作することで主軸部を移動させ、筐体に設けられた軸受け穴に対し主軸部を挿入したり引き抜くことができるようにしている。このヒンジ機構を備えた遊技機は、筐体とガラス扉との間に生じる隙間を小さくでき、この隙間から遊技領域にピアノ線をはじめとするワイヤ等を挿入して遊技球を誘導する等の犯罪行為を防止できる利点がある。   In such a gaming machine, the hinge mechanism is devised so that the glass door can be easily attached and detached as the new machine is assembled or the gaming machine removed from the game hall is disassembled. In this hinge mechanism, for example, a metal pin is slidably provided on a glass door as a hinge shaft (pivot). This metal pin is bent into an L shape, for example, and is divided into a main shaft portion and a lever portion. When removing the glass door, an operator or the like slides the lever portion exposed on the back surface of the glass door. Thus, the main shaft portion is moved so that the main shaft portion can be inserted into and removed from the bearing hole provided in the housing. A gaming machine equipped with this hinge mechanism can reduce a gap generated between the housing and the glass door, and guides a game ball by inserting a wire such as a piano wire into the game area from this gap. There is an advantage that criminal activity can be prevented.
しかしながら、ワイヤ等が遊技領域に届きにくい遊技機に対しては、遊技機本体とガラス扉との隙間から先端に輪を作ったワイヤを挿入し、これを金属ピンのレバー部に引っ掛けて金属ピンを外部からスライド操作し、金属ピンを軸受け穴から引き抜くように移動させてガラス扉を直接取り外すという犯罪行為が行われることがある。これは、従来のヒンジ機構では上記レバーを鉛直下方向にスライドさせるだけの単調な操作のみで金属ピンを引き抜けることが原因となっている。また、この犯罪行為を防止するためにレバー部の操作を複雑にしたり保護カバーを設けたりすると、可動扉の組み立てや解体時における面倒さが増したり部品点数が増加したり、作業の簡便性が損なわれるという問題がある。   However, for gaming machines where wires etc. are difficult to reach the gaming area, insert a wire that forms a ring at the tip through the gap between the gaming machine body and the glass door, and hook this onto the lever part of the metal pin to A criminal act may be performed in which the glass door is directly removed by sliding the metal pin from the outside and moving it so that the metal pin is pulled out of the bearing hole. This is because the conventional hinge mechanism pulls out the metal pin only by a monotonous operation of sliding the lever vertically downward. In addition, if the operation of the lever part is complicated or a protective cover is provided to prevent this criminal act, the troublesomeness during the assembly and disassembly of the movable door, the number of parts will increase, and the convenience of work will be increased. There is a problem of being damaged.
本発明は、上記問題点を考慮してなされたもので、金属ピンを引き抜くための操作を単調にすることなく、可動扉の着脱作業の簡便性を損なうことがないようにした防犯性の高い遊技機のヒンジ機構を提供することを目的とする。   The present invention has been made in consideration of the above-mentioned problems, and does not impair the simplicity of the operation of attaching and detaching the movable door without making the operation for pulling out the metal pin high. An object is to provide a hinge mechanism of a gaming machine.
上記目的を達成するために、本発明は、遊技媒体を供給して遊技を行う遊技領域が設けられた遊技機本体に、前記遊技領域を視認可能にする窓部を備えた可動扉を回動自在に支持する遊技機のヒンジ機構において、前記遊技機本体及び前記可動扉の何れか一方に軸受け穴が設けられ、その他方に該軸受け穴に挿入されるヒンジ軸及び該ヒンジ軸を保持する保持部材が設けられており、前記ヒンジ軸は、前記軸受け穴に向かって突出する突出位置と前記軸受け穴から退避する退避位置との間で軸方向に移動自在な主軸部と、前記主軸部を軸方向に移動する第1操作及び前記主軸部の軸を中心に回動する第2操作がなされるレバー部とからなり、前記レバー部が前記主軸部と略直交する方向に曲折させる第1曲折部と、さらに該第1曲折部と略直交する方向に曲折させる第2曲折部とからなり、該第2曲折部を、前記保持部材が設けられた面に形成された開口からその反対側へ貫通させて前記第1操作及び第2操作をさせるものであり、前記開口は、貫通させた前記第2曲折部の前記軸方向の移動を規制して前記突出位置と退避位置との移動を規制する第1開口部と、該第1開口部と連なり、前記主軸部の軸を中心に回動させることで該第2曲折部の貫通状態を変位させ前記退避位置への移動の規制を解除する第2開口部とからなることを特徴とするものである。   In order to achieve the above-described object, the present invention rotates a movable door provided with a window portion that allows a game area to be visually recognized by supplying a game medium to a game area in which a game area is provided. In a hinge mechanism of a gaming machine that is freely supported, a bearing hole is provided in one of the gaming machine main body and the movable door, and a hinge shaft that is inserted into the bearing hole on the other side and a holding that holds the hinge shaft A hinge shaft, wherein the hinge shaft is axially movable between a protruding position protruding toward the bearing hole and a retracted position retracted from the bearing hole; A first bent portion that is configured to be bent in a direction substantially orthogonal to the main shaft portion. The first bent portion includes a first operation that moves in a direction and a second operation that rotates around the axis of the main shaft portion. And further substantially straight with the first bend. A second bent portion that bends in a direction to be inserted, and passes through the second bent portion from the opening formed on the surface provided with the holding member to the opposite side to perform the first operation and the second operation. The opening includes a first opening that restricts movement of the second bent portion that is passed through in the axial direction and restricts movement between the protruding position and the retracted position, and the first opening. And a second opening for releasing the restriction of movement to the retracted position by displacing the penetrating state of the second bent portion by rotating about the axis of the main shaft portion. Is.
また、前記ヒンジ軸は、前記保持部材に設けられる付勢部材によって前記主軸部が前記突出位置に向けて付勢された状態で保持されており、前記主軸部が前記退避位置にある時に、前記付勢部材の付勢力を受けて前記開口に設けた前記第1開口部及び第2開口部とが連接する部分に設けられる斜辺によって前記レバー部がガイドされ、前記主軸部を前記突出位置に変位させることを特徴とする。   The hinge shaft is held in a state where the main shaft portion is biased toward the protruding position by a biasing member provided on the holding member, and when the main shaft portion is in the retracted position, The lever portion is guided by a hypotenuse provided in a portion where the first opening and the second opening provided in the opening are connected by receiving the biasing force of the biasing member, and the main shaft portion is displaced to the protruding position. It is characterized by making it.
本発明によれば、ヒンジ軸を軸受け穴から引き抜く際に、軸方向に沿ってレバー部を操作する途中にこれを回動する操作が必要となり、可動扉と遊技機本体との間の隙間から挿入されたワイヤ等を単純に一方向へスライドさせてもヒンジ軸を引き抜くことができなくなる。可動扉を閉じたままの状態では、レバー部に対してワイヤ等を用いて軸方向に平行な操作と軸方向を中心に回動する操作の2通りの操作を外部から加えることは困難であることから、可動扉を取り外す犯罪行為を防止し、防犯性を高める効果が得られる。ここで、レバー部が主軸部から曲折した第1曲折部と第1曲折部からさらに曲折した第2曲折部とを有していることにより、回動の中心となる主軸部からレバー部の先端までの距離が大きくなり、レバー部が開口内を軸方向と垂直な方向に移動する距離に対してヒンジ軸の回動する角度が小さくなり、第2曲折部が極端に傾いて操作しにくくなることがなく、レバー部の先端が開口から抜けてヒンジ軸が脱落することもない。   According to the present invention, when pulling out the hinge shaft from the bearing hole, it is necessary to rotate the lever portion while operating the lever portion along the axial direction, and the gap between the movable door and the gaming machine main body is required. The hinge shaft cannot be pulled out even if the inserted wire or the like is simply slid in one direction. In a state where the movable door is closed, it is difficult to externally apply two operations, that is, an operation parallel to the axial direction using a wire or the like to the lever portion and an operation rotating around the axial direction. Therefore, the criminal act of removing the movable door can be prevented, and the effect of improving the crime prevention can be obtained. Here, the lever portion has a first bent portion bent from the main shaft portion and a second bent portion further bent from the first bent portion, whereby the tip of the lever portion from the main shaft portion serving as the center of rotation. The distance to which the lever part moves in the opening in the direction perpendicular to the axial direction becomes smaller, and the angle of rotation of the hinge shaft becomes smaller, making the second bent part extremely inclined and difficult to operate. In other words, the tip of the lever portion does not come out of the opening and the hinge shaft does not fall off.
また、付勢部材の付勢力によりヒンジ軸の主軸部は軸受け穴に差し込まれた状態が保たれ、主軸部が退避位置にある場合には上記付勢力を受けて変位するレバー部が斜形部を介して第2開口部から第1開口部へガイドされて主軸部は容易に退避位置から突出位置へ戻ることができ、可動扉の着脱時に作業者はヒンジ軸を引き抜く操作だけ行えばよく、作業の面倒さが増えることはない。   Further, the main shaft portion of the hinge shaft is kept inserted into the bearing hole by the urging force of the urging member, and when the main shaft portion is in the retracted position, the lever portion that is displaced by the urging force is an oblique portion. The main shaft portion can be easily returned from the retracted position to the protruding position by being guided from the second opening portion to the first opening portion, and the operator only has to pull out the hinge shaft when the movable door is attached or detached. The work is not cumbersome.

The second left edge 46 is located obliquely below the first left edge 43, and the guide is inclined with respect to the axial direction between the first left edge 43 and the second left edge 46. A portion (slanted side) 47 is provided. The guide portion 47 is provided above the lower end edge portion 41 and is inclined with respect to the axial direction of the main shaft portion 33a.
次に、ガラス扉12を遊技機本体11に組み付ける際の手順について説明する。扉本体28に外装体29とガラス板30を取り付けてガラス扉12を組み立て、扉本体28の下端隅に設けられた金具32に対して保持枠25の下部に設けられた支軸(図示なし)を差し込む。次に可動扉12の背面側から第2曲折部33dを摘み、金属ピン33を操作して主軸部33aを折り曲げ片31aの位置まで退避させる。   Next, a procedure for assembling the glass door 12 to the gaming machine main body 11 will be described. The exterior body 29 and the glass plate 30 are attached to the door body 28 to assemble the glass door 12, and a support shaft (not shown) provided at the lower portion of the holding frame 25 with respect to the metal fitting 32 provided at the lower end corner of the door body 28. Plug in. Next, the second bent portion 33d is picked from the back side of the movable door 12, and the metal pin 33 is operated to retract the main shaft portion 33a to the position of the bent piece 31a.
図5(a)に示すように、第2曲折部33dは上端縁部40に当接した位置から第1右側縁部42に沿って鉛直下方向に操作される。第2曲折部33dが障害部44に当接する位置まで操作されると、障害部44により第2曲折部33dの鉛直下方向への操作が妨害される。このとき、主軸部33aは突出位置と退避位置の間の位置にあり、軸受け穴25aに主軸部33aを差し込むことはできない。第2曲折部33dを左方向に移動させ、金属ピン33が主軸部33aを中心に回動すると、第2曲折部33dは障害部44を回避して鉛直下方向の操作が可能となる。   As shown in FIG. 5A, the second bent portion 33 d is operated vertically downward along the first right side edge 42 from the position in contact with the upper end edge 40. When the second bent portion 33d is operated to a position where it comes into contact with the obstacle portion 44, the obstacle portion 44 prevents the second bent portion 33d from operating in the vertically downward direction. At this time, the main shaft portion 33a is located between the protruding position and the retracted position, and the main shaft portion 33a cannot be inserted into the bearing hole 25a. When the second bent portion 33d is moved in the left direction and the metal pin 33 is rotated about the main shaft portion 33a, the second bent portion 33d can avoid the obstacle portion 44 and can be operated vertically downward.
第2曲折部33dは上端縁部40からクランク状に操作され、下端縁部41に当接する位置まで移動すると、主軸部33aが軸受け穴25aにその先端を差し込むことが可能な退避位置まで退避する。このとき、可動扉12の上部を保持枠25の上部に宛がい、主軸部33aと軸受け穴25aの位置を合わせる。第2曲折部33dを摘んでいた指を離すと、金属ピン33は付勢バネ36の力により上方向へ引っ張られる。   When the second bent portion 33d is operated in a crank shape from the upper end edge 40 and moves to a position where it abuts on the lower end edge 41, the main shaft portion 33a retreats to a retreat position where the tip can be inserted into the bearing hole 25a. . At this time, the upper part of the movable door 12 is directed to the upper part of the holding frame 25, and the positions of the main shaft part 33a and the bearing hole 25a are aligned. When the finger holding the second bent portion 33 d is released, the metal pin 33 is pulled upward by the force of the biasing spring 36.
図5(b)に示すように、第2曲折部33dは、下端縁部41からその上方に位置するガイド部47に衝突する。第2曲折部33dは、ガイド部47を摺動して斜め上方向へ移動し、主軸部33aが退避位置から突出位置に向かって移動して軸受け穴25aに差し込まれる。第2曲折部33dは、ガイド部47を摺動する間に主軸部33aを退避位置に移動させるときとは逆方向に回動して、上端縁部40に当接する位置まで移動する。このようにして、金属ピン33の主軸部33aは保持枠25の軸受け穴25aにしっかりと差し込まれ、可動扉12が遊技機本体11に回動自在に軸支される。なお、可動扉12を取外す際には第2曲折部33dを上述と同様に操作すればよい。   As shown in FIG. 5B, the second bent portion 33d collides with the guide portion 47 located above the lower end edge portion 41. The second bent portion 33d slides on the guide portion 47 and moves obliquely upward, and the main shaft portion 33a moves from the retracted position toward the protruding position and is inserted into the bearing hole 25a. The second bent portion 33d rotates in a direction opposite to that when the main shaft portion 33a is moved to the retracted position while sliding the guide portion 47, and moves to a position where the second bent portion 33d contacts the upper edge 40. In this way, the main shaft portion 33 a of the metal pin 33 is firmly inserted into the bearing hole 25 a of the holding frame 25, and the movable door 12 is pivotally supported by the gaming machine body 11. In addition, what is necessary is just to operate the 2nd bending part 33d similarly to the above-mentioned when removing the movable door 12. FIG.
なお、上記実施形態では、ヒンジ軸として略直角に折り曲げられたL字形状の金属ピン33が用いられているが、これに限られず、主軸部から略直角に突出したレバー部を有するヒンジ軸であれば本発明を等しく適用でき、ヒンジ軸の具体的な形状や材質等に限定されない。また、ヒンジ軸である金属ピンを遊技機本体に設け、軸受け穴をガラス扉に設けてもよく、ヒンジ軸は可動扉又は遊技機本体の上部だけでなく下部もしくは上部と下部の両方に設けてもよい。また、本発明は、弾球遊技機のように、遊技媒体として球を使用する遊技機に限られず、その他の形状の遊技媒体を使用する遊技機に適用できる。   In the above-described embodiment, the L-shaped metal pin 33 bent at a substantially right angle is used as the hinge shaft. However, the present invention is not limited to this, and the hinge shaft having a lever portion protruding from the main shaft portion at a substantially right angle. The present invention is equally applicable as long as it is present, and the present invention is not limited to the specific shape and material of the hinge shaft.
