Description

  The present invention relates to a screw fixing tool for fixing a screw to a main body frame side when a circuit board is mounted on a main body frame of a liquid crystal television, for example, and a manufacturing method thereof.

Conventionally, for example, a circuit board is mounted on a main body frame of a liquid crystal television using a fixing tool and a screw.
As shown in FIG. 4, the fixing tool 40 has a screw groove 42 spirally cut from the upper surface at the center of the cylindrical portion 41, and a flange portion 43 having a larger diameter than the cylindrical portion 41 at the lower end.

Then, as shown in FIG. 5, the fixing device 40 is fixed and integrated with the main body frame 50 by caulking 45 the flange portions 43 of the fixing device 40 to the plurality of holes 51 formed in the main body frame 50. Then, the circuit board 60 is disposed on the upper surface side of the fixture 40 and the screw 70 is inserted into the hole 61 of the circuit board 60 and the screw groove 42 of the fixture 40, so that the circuit board 60 is attached to the main body frame 50. And was fixed.
Further, during the caulking process 45, the bulging portion on the main body frame 50 side enters the cutting groove portion 44 formed in the cylindrical portion 41 so that the fixing is ensured.

The fixture 40 described above has a problem in that it takes time and labor to manufacture because each cylindrical portion 41 needs to be threaded by a manual operation or a secondary processing. Further, since it is necessary to thread the thread grooves 42 one by one with respect to a large number of fixtures 40, the thread grooves 42 are notched due to a mistake in processing (forgetting to cut the screw) of several manufactured fasteners. There was a case where it was not done.
Then, when the fixing tool 40 is caulked 45 to the main body frame 50, if the screw groove 42 is not cut into one of the fixing tools 40, the circuit board 60 cannot be mounted, There is a disadvantage that the integrated main body frame 50 is treated as a defective product.

Various fixing devices for fixing the screw have been proposed as shown in the following patent document, but there is no structure suitable for fixing the circuit board 60 to the main body frame 50.

Thus, the structure of the screw fixture 1 in which the screw groove 20 is reliably formed can be obtained.
In addition, when manufacturing a screw fixture, the hole to be drilled in the top surface of the cylindrical body by pressing (a shape in which a long hole portion is connected to a circular portion) is made asymmetrical, so that the subsequent screw groove About the thread groove 20 formed in a manufacturing process, it can be set as the thread groove which increased the part which has contacted the screw thread, and can ensure the stability at the time of screw mounting | wearing.

An example of an embodiment of the present invention will be described with reference to the drawings.
As shown in FIG. 1, the screw fixture 1 according to the present invention is configured to have a cylindrical portion 10 that is open on one side and closed on the other side by a top surface 11. A flange portion 13 that protrudes to the outer periphery of the cylindrical portion 10 is formed at the opening-side lower end of the cylindrical portion 10. On the peripheral surface of the flange portion 13, irregularities including a mountain shape 13 a and a valley shape 13 b are continuously formed. This is to facilitate deformation of the inner wall portion of the hole due to the unevenness when the flange portion 13 is caulked to the hole of the flat plate, and to prevent rotation during rotation (prevention of rotation). It is.
The diameter of the flange portion 13 is slightly larger than the diameter of the hole in the main body frame to which the screw fixture 1 is mounted in order to perform the caulking process. The state in which the screw fixture 1 is attached to the main body frame by the caulking process will be described later.

The top surface 11 of the cylindrical portion 10 is formed with a hole to be a single mouth (one turn) of the screw groove 20 by press working. As shown in FIGS. 1 (a) and 1 (c), the thread groove 20 is formed on a perforated hole (a hole 34 having a shape similar to a gourd shape shown in FIGS. 2 and 6 described later). It is formed by deforming by press working into a shape that fits corresponding to one screw thread (one turn) of a screw attached to the part. By providing a step absorption hole 21 in the screw groove 20 (hole), a step corresponding to the screw thread can be formed in the screw groove 20 due to the presence of this portion.
That is, the screw groove 20 is configured to have a step corresponding to one screw thread across the step absorption hole 21 and a spiral shape corresponding to one screw thread.

  In addition, a space portion 15 in which the tip portion of the screw can be stored is formed inside the cylindrical portion 10. The length of the cylindrical portion 10 is set according to the length of the screw fixed to the screw fixture 1 and the height required for design.

Next, a basic manufacturing method of the screw fixture 1 having the above structure will be described with reference to FIG.
The screw fixture 1 includes a cylindrical body having a flange portion 13 at one end and a thread groove 20 at the other end by pressing the belt-like plate 30 a plurality of times in the vertical direction by an upper die and a lower die in a flow operation. It is formed by doing.
The series of steps shown in FIG. 2 is performed in close proximity to the belt-like plate 30 by synchronizing the upper and lower mold plates (not shown) arranged above and below the belt-like plate 30 made of metal pieces.・ Each step is performed at the same time in a state where the strip plate 30 is clamped by each plate, and each plate is separated after the step is completed, and the strip plate 30 is moved rightward in the drawing by a predetermined distance. Each processing portion is sequentially moved to the next step.

  First, cylindrical bodies 31, 32, and 33 having one end opened and a top surface at the other end by a plurality of press workings (sequential die processing) in FIGS. Are sequentially molded, and finally, press processing is performed so as to have the cylindrical portion 10 on which the top surface 11 is formed (main body forming step). In this process, a desired cylindrical body cannot be obtained by a single press process. Therefore, a cylindrical body having a cylindrical portion 10 having a desired shape is formed by sequentially performing a plurality of press processes in a flow manner. Is possible (FIG. 2D).

Next, the elongated hole portion 34b is connected to the substantially circular portion 34a as shown in FIG. 6 by press working that punches the top surface 11 of the molded cylindrical body with a punch (not shown). A hole 34 having such a shape (a shape similar to a gourd shape) is drilled (hole forming step) (FIG. 2 (e)).
As shown in FIG. 6, the hole 34 is formed in a shape in which the long hole portion 34 b is connected to the substantially circular portion 34 a. The hole 34 is not symmetrical on the left and right in FIG. 6, but is formed such that the radius R1 of the hole in the left portion of the drawing at the connecting portion between the substantially circular portion 34a and the elongated hole portion 34b is larger than the radius R2 on the right side. Thus, the shape is asymmetrical in the vicinity of the connection between the substantially circular portion and the long hole portion. This is to ensure the stability of screw mounting by increasing the number of screw groove portions that are in contact with (supported) when the screw is mounted in a thread groove formed by press working, which will be described later. is there.

Subsequently, the top surface 11 including the hole 34 is pressed to deform the hole 34, and as shown in FIG. 7, the thread groove 20 and the long hole portion 34 b obtained by deforming the substantially circular portion 34 a. By forming the step absorption hole 21 that is deformed, one mouth (one round) of the screw groove 20 is formed (screw groove processing step) (FIG. 2 (f)).
That is, in the thread groove processing step, the elongated hole portion 34b is deformed, so that it is between the high position and the low position of the thread groove 20 as shown in FIGS. 7 (a), (b), and (c). A step absorption hole 21 for interposing a space without a thread groove is formed, and the substantially circular portion 34a is deformed to form a spiral thread groove 20 having a height difference of one round.
Further, in the screw groove 20, when the screw groove 20 having the step absorption hole 21 is formed by pressing so that the left side in FIG. 7 is the start of the screw pitch and the right side is the end of the screw pitch, It is necessary to increase the thread groove portion in contact with (support) and to bend the end side of the right screw pitch high (see FIG. 7C). Therefore, in order to make the end position of the right screw pitch longer than that on the left side with respect to the bending position, the hole 34 is asymmetric in the state of FIG. 6 before press working.

  Next, a cut groove in which unevenness that becomes the outer periphery of the flange portion 13 is repeated is formed by press working around the cylindrical body (FIG. 2G).

Finally, by punching out with a punch (not shown), the cylindrical body in which the screw groove 20 is formed is cut off from the belt-like plate 30 to obtain the screw fixture 1 as a product (FIG. 2). (H)).
In the series of manufacturing processes described above, the series of manufacturing processes including the formation of the thread grooves 20 are all performed by press processing (sequential die processing), so that forgetting the threading is prevented and the threading process is reliably performed ( The screw fixture 1) in which the thread groove 20 is formed can be obtained only by pressing.

Next, how to use the above-described screw fixture 1 will be described with reference to FIG.
The screw fixture 1 is for mounting the circuit board 60 on a main body frame 50 such as a liquid crystal television, and is used at a plurality of locations corresponding to the four corners of the circuit board 60, for example.

First, the screw fixture 1 is inserted into the plurality of holes 51 formed in the main body frame 50 from the top surface 11 side (FIG. 3A). Since the diameter of the flange portion 13 of the screw fixture 1 is formed larger than the hole 51, the flange portion 13 abuts against the back surface of the main body frame 50.
In this state, by pressing the screw fixture 1 arranged on the contact plate 100 from the main body frame 50 side, the flange portion 13 is pushed into the hole 51, and the mountain shape 13a and the valley shape 13b around the flange portion 13 are the main body. It is buried on the frame 50 side (FIG. 3B).

The circuit board 60 is placed on the fixed screw fixture 1, the hole 61 provided in the circuit board 60 is aligned with the top surface 11 portion of the screw fixture 1, and the screw 70 is attached. Since the hole 61 formed in the circuit board 60 is formed larger than the screw diameter of the screw 70, the screw thread of the screw 70 is fitted only in the screw groove 20 of the screw fixture 1, and the screw 70 is screwed. By doing so, the fitting portion (one valley portion) moves to the screw base side, and the screw 70 is fastened between the screw fixture 1 and the circuit board 60 (FIG. 3C).
As shown in FIG. 3 (c), one screw thread valley portion 71 is located in the screw groove 20, and the screw thread top line below the valley portion 71 is in the screw groove 20. The screw 70 is fixed with respect to the screw fixture 1 by abutting along.

  According to the structure of the screw fixture 1 described above, the screw groove 20 to which the screw 70 is screwed is formed by the screw groove 20 of one mouth (for one round) by a series of press processing, so that the screw groove 20 is reliably formed. The screw fixing tool 1 can be obtained, and as described in the prior art, no defective product is generated at the stage where the screw fixing tool 1 is mounted on the main body frame 50, and the generation of useless members is prevented. be able to.
