この発明は、遊技機の演出に伴い、複数の開閉部材を閉鎖状態と開放状態とに変化し得るようにした遊技機のシャッター装置に関するものである。   The present invention relates to a shutter device for a gaming machine in which a plurality of opening / closing members can be changed between a closed state and an open state in accordance with the effects of the gaming machine.

パチンコ機、スロットマシンあるいはパチンコ式スロットマシン等の遊技機では、遊技中に発生する毎回の始動および停止を含む変動制御条件に基いて図柄組合わせゲームを展開すると共に、特別遊技状態に係る権利とされる図柄組合わせ条件を成立表示することのできる遊技装置として、ドラム式図柄表示装置、ベルト式図柄表示装置、液晶式図柄表示装置等の各種形態の図柄表示装置が好適に採用されている。   In gaming machines such as pachinko machines, slot machines or pachinko slot machines, a combination game is developed on the basis of variable control conditions including starting and stopping every time that occurs during a game, and the right to a special gaming state Various types of symbol display devices such as a drum-type symbol display device, a belt-type symbol display device, and a liquid crystal symbol display device are suitably employed as gaming devices that can display the established symbol combination conditions.

前記各図柄表示装置において、図柄組合わせゲームの演出として、図柄を高速・低速で変動させたり、液晶表示装置であればキャラクターを表示させたりと、遊技者の趣向を高める演出が数々行なわれている。また近年は、図柄表示装置の近傍に補助装置を設け、該補助装置での補助演出を行なうパチンコ機も開発されている。そして、補助装置としてシャッター装置を採用し、図柄表示装置における図柄の表示領域を、レール部材に案内される複数の遮蔽板により遮蔽し、図柄を一旦隠すと云う演出を行なうものが、本件出願人から提案されている(例えば、特許文献1)。
特開2004−135885号公報
In each of the symbol display devices, as the effects of the symbol combination game, there are many effects that enhance the player's taste, such as changing the symbols at high speed and low speed, or displaying characters in the case of a liquid crystal display device. Yes. In recent years, a pachinko machine has also been developed in which an auxiliary device is provided in the vicinity of the symbol display device and performs an auxiliary effect with the auxiliary device. Further, the present applicant adopts a shutter device as an auxiliary device, shields the symbol display area in the symbol display device with a plurality of shielding plates guided by the rail member, and temporarily hides the symbol. (For example, Patent Document 1).
JP 2004-135585 A

前記シャッター装置では、レール部材に沿って上下方向に移動可能に案内されると共に作動手段に連結された作動用の遮蔽板と、レール部材に沿って上下方向に移動可能に案内されると共に作動用の遮蔽板の移動に伴って移動可能な複数の従動用の遮蔽板とで、図柄表示装置における図柄の表示領域を遮蔽するよう構成してある。この場合において、従動用の遮蔽板は、その左右両端部がレール部材に案内されているだけであって、作動用の遮蔽板のように作動手段に連結されて拘束されているわけではない。このため、作動用の遮蔽板を急速に上下方向に移動させると、作動用の遮蔽板の移動に伴う振動等の影響で、従動用の遮蔽板がレール部材に対して傾いたりする可能性がある。そして、このように従動用の遮蔽板がレール部材に対して傾いてしまうと、その後の遮蔽板の開閉動作に支障を来たし、図柄表示装置と連携する演出が行なえなくなる問題を招くおそれがある。   The shutter device is guided to be movable in the vertical direction along the rail member and is connected to the operating means, and is guided to be movable in the vertical direction along the rail member. The symbol display area in the symbol display device is shielded by a plurality of follower shield plates that can move in accordance with the movement of the shield plate. In this case, the left and right end portions of the driven shielding plate are only guided by the rail members, and are not connected and restrained by the operating means like the operating shielding plate. For this reason, if the operating shielding plate is rapidly moved in the vertical direction, the driven shielding plate may be inclined with respect to the rail member due to the influence of vibration or the like accompanying the movement of the operating shielding plate. is there. If the follow-up shielding plate is tilted with respect to the rail member in this way, the subsequent opening / closing operation of the shielding plate may be hindered, and there may be a problem that an effect in cooperation with the symbol display device cannot be performed.

ここで、特許文献1に記載のシャッター装置を横置きとし、横開き状のシャッター装置として遊技機に適用させる場合は、シャッター装置の閉鎖および開放時には、作動用の遮蔽板が移動し、該作動用の遮蔽板に設けた係合片が従動用の遮蔽板に設けた係合片に係合することで、作動用の遮蔽板と共に従動用の遮蔽板が移動して閉鎖位置または開放位置に至ることとなる。そして、このようにシャッター装置を横置きとした場合において、作動用の遮蔽板を急激に移動させると、作動用の遮蔽板の係合片が従動用の遮蔽板の係合片に係合(衝突)したときに、従動用の遮蔽板が意図した動きと異なって、作動用の遮蔽板より速く移動してしまい、遮蔽板が徐々に閉鎖あるいは開放する動きとはならず、見栄えの悪い演出となるおそれがある。また、作動用の遮蔽板のみを急激に左右方向に移動させる演出を行なう際に、該作動用の遮蔽板の移動に伴う振動等の影響で、定位置に止まっていてほしい従動用の遮蔽板が徐々に移動してしまい、演出の見栄えが劣ったり図柄表示装置と連携する演出ができなくなることも推定される。   Here, when the shutter device described in Patent Document 1 is placed horizontally and applied to a gaming machine as a horizontally-open shutter device, when the shutter device is closed and opened, the operating shielding plate moves and the operation is performed. When the engagement piece provided on the shield plate for engagement is engaged with the engagement piece provided on the shield plate for driving, the shield plate for driving moves together with the shielding plate for operation to the closed position or the open position. Will be reached. Then, when the shutter device is placed horizontally in this way, when the operating shielding plate is moved suddenly, the engaging piece of the operating shielding plate engages with the engaging piece of the driven shielding plate ( Unlike the intended movement, the driven shield plate moves faster than the actuated shield plate, and the shield plate does not move gradually closing or opening. There is a risk of becoming. In addition, when performing an effect in which only the operating shielding plate is suddenly moved in the left-right direction, a driven shielding plate that is desired to remain at a fixed position due to the influence of vibration or the like accompanying the movement of the operating shielding plate. Is gradually moved, and it is also estimated that the effect is inferior in appearance or that the effect in cooperation with the symbol display device cannot be performed.

すなわち、本発明は、前述した従来の技術に内在している前記課題に鑑み、これを好適に解決するべく提案されたものであって、作動用の開閉部材を急激に移動させた場合においても、従動用の開閉部材の移動に支障を来たしたり、意図しない動作を行なうのを防止し得る遊技機のシャッター装置を提供することを目的とする。   That is, the present invention has been proposed to solve this problem in view of the above-described problems inherent in the prior art, and even when the operating opening / closing member is moved suddenly. An object of the present invention is to provide a shutter device for a gaming machine that can prevent movement of a follower opening / closing member or prevent an unintended operation.

前記課題を克服し、所期の目的を達成するために、本願の請求項1に係る遊技機のシャッター装置は、
装置本体(16)に配設したシャッター作動手段(26,27)により移動される作動用の開閉部材(23)と、前記装置本体(16)に配設したレール部材(19,20)に案内されて前記作動用の開閉部材(23)の移動に伴って同一方向に移動する従動用の開閉部材(22)とを備え、遊技機(P)の演出に伴い前記作動用の開閉部材(23)をシャッター作動手段(26,27)により移動することで、各開閉部材(22,23)が移動方向に連なった閉鎖状態と、複数の開閉部材(22,23)が前後方向に重なり合った開放状態とに変化するよう構成された遊技機のシャッター装置において、
前記従動用の開閉部材(22)の移動に対して負荷を与える負荷付与手段(37)を備え
前記負荷付与手段を、前記装置本体(16)に設けられた固定部(36)に取付けられて、前記従動用の開閉部材(22)に弾力的に当接する板バネ(37)で構成し
前記固定部(36)には、従動用の開閉部材(22)における移動方向の前後に離間して一対の挿通孔(36b,36b)が設けられ、前記板バネ(37)の各端部を対応の挿通孔(36b,36b)に夫々挿通することで、該板バネ(37)が従動用の開閉部材(22)に対して弾力的に当接する状態で保持されるよう構成したことを特徴とする。
このように、従動用の開閉部材の移動に対して負荷付与手段により負荷を付与するよう構成したから、作動用の開閉部材を急激に移動させた際に、従動用の開閉部材がレール部材に対して傾いて移動に支障を来たしたり、あるいはレール部材から外れて移動不能となるのを防止することができる。また、作動用の開閉部材のみを移動した際の振動等によって、従動用の開閉部材が意図しない動きをするのを防止し、常に見栄えのよい演出を行なうことができる。すなわち、遊技機の演出と連携するように開閉部材を作動することができ、遊技機全体としての演出効果が向上する。また、薄く、小さな板バネを負荷付与手段として用いることで、シャッター装置を軽量、コンパクトにすることができる。更に、固定部の挿通孔に対して板バネの端部を挿通するだけで、該板バネを取付けるよう構成したから、取付けが容易になると共に、ネジ等の別部品を不要として、製造コストを削減することができる。
In order to overcome the above-described problems and achieve the intended purpose, a shutter device for a gaming machine according to claim 1 of the present application is provided.
An opening / closing member (23) for operation that is moved by shutter operating means (26, 27) disposed in the apparatus body (16) and a rail member (19, 20) disposed in the apparatus body (16). And a follower opening / closing member (22) that moves in the same direction as the actuating opening / closing member (23) moves, and the actuating opening / closing member (23 ) Is moved by the shutter actuating means (26, 27), so that each open / close member (22, 23) is connected in the moving direction and a plurality of open / close members (22, 23) are overlapped in the front-rear direction. In the shutter device of the gaming machine configured to change to the state,

The load applying means is configured by a leaf spring (37) attached to a fixing portion (36) provided in the apparatus body (16) and elastically abutting the driven opening / closing member (22).
The fixed portion (36) is provided with a pair of insertion holes (36b, 36b) that are separated from each other in the movement direction of the driven opening / closing member (22), and each end portion of the leaf spring (37) is provided. The leaf spring (37) is configured to be held in a state of elastic contact with the driven opening / closing member (22) by being inserted through the corresponding insertion holes (36b, 36b), respectively. And
As described above, since the load is applied by the load applying means with respect to the movement of the driven opening / closing member, the driven opening / closing member becomes the rail member when the operating opening / closing member is moved suddenly. In contrast, it is possible to prevent the movement from being hindered or the movement of the rail member from the rail member becoming impossible. Further, it is possible to prevent the driven opening / closing member from unintentionally moving due to vibration or the like when only the operating opening / closing member is moved, and to always provide a good-looking effect. That is, the opening / closing member can be operated so as to cooperate with the effect of the gaming machine, and the effect of the effect as the entire gaming machine is improved. Further, by using a thin and small leaf spring as the load applying means, the shutter device can be made lightweight and compact. Furthermore, since the leaf spring can be attached simply by inserting the end of the leaf spring into the insertion hole of the fixed portion, the attachment is facilitated, and a separate part such as a screw is not required. Can be reduced.

The cover member 36 is configured to restrict the movement of the upper portions of the driven opening and closing members 22 and 22 to the front side. As shown in FIGS. 7 and 8, mounting grooves 36 a that are recessed in the front side are formed in the left and right directions with predetermined lengths on the back surface side of the cover member 36 corresponding to each driven opening / closing member 22. Insertion holes 36b that open in the left-right direction are respectively formed at both left and right end portions 36a (both end portions in the moving direction of the driven opening / closing member 22). The plate springs 37 are attached to the mounting grooves 36a in a state where the left and right ends of the plate springs 37 as load applying means are inserted into the left and right insertion holes 36b, 36b. The plate spring 37 is configured such that a predetermined region in the width direction extends rearward from the back surface of the cover member 36 and elastically contacts the protrusion 28b of the front slide member 28.

By contacting, a required load is applied to the movement of the front slide member 28, that is, the driven opening / closing member 22 in the left-right direction. Note that the magnitude of the load applied to the front slide member 28 by the leaf spring 37 is such that a smooth opening / closing operation by the right shutter operating means 26 described later is achieved, and the driven opening / closing member 22 is not engaged with the operation opening / closing member 23. The driven opening / closing member 22 is set to a value that does not easily move in the left-right direction due to various vibrations generated in the state. Further, the length dimension of the leaf spring 37 and the front slide member 28 in the left-right direction is such that the leaf spring 37 has a protruding portion 28b at any position within the range in which the driven opening / closing member 22 moves between the open position and the closed position. It is set so as to elastically contact In FIG. 4, reference numeral 38 denotes a transparent front panel that is detachably disposed on the front surface of the main body frame 16 and covers the entire front surface of the shutter device 10.

前記右シャッター24を開放および閉鎖作動する右シャッター作動手段26は、前記本体枠16における開口部16aより上部の裏側に前向きに配設された駆動モータ39と、該モータ39の回転軸に一体的に回転するよう配設されたピニオン40とから構成され、該ピニオン40が、前記後スライド部材31の上面に形成されて左右方向に延在するラック31bに噛合するよう構成される(図5参照)。すなわち、駆動モータ39を正逆回転することで、ピニオン40とラック31bとの噛合作用下に、前記作動開閉部材23が上下のレール部材19,21に沿って左右に移動するようになっている。なお、左右の駆動モータ39,39は、前記制御回路装置に接続され、前記図柄表示装置Kの図柄表示部14で行なわれる演出(遊技機の演出)に連携するよう作動制御されて、図柄表示部14の前側を左右のシャッター24,25で遮蔽したり開放するよう構成される。   The right shutter actuating means 26 for opening and closing the right shutter 24 is integrally formed with a drive motor 39 disposed on the back side above the opening 16a in the main body frame 16 and a rotating shaft of the motor 39. And the pinion 40 is configured to mesh with a rack 31b formed on the upper surface of the rear slide member 31 and extending in the left-right direction (see FIG. 5). ). That is, by rotating the drive motor 39 forward and backward, the operation opening / closing member 23 moves left and right along the upper and lower rail members 19 and 21 under the meshing action of the pinion 40 and the rack 31b. . The left and right drive motors 39, 39 are connected to the control circuit device, and are controlled to operate in coordination with the effect (game machine effect) performed by the symbol display unit 14 of the symbol display device K. The front side of the portion 14 is configured to be shielded or opened by the left and right shutters 24 and 25.

前記各駆動モータ39には、制御回路装置に電気的に接続するリード線に配設されたコネクタ(何れも図示せず)が差込接続されるコネクタ受部39aが設けられ、該コネクタ受部39aの差込口が側方に向く姿勢で各駆動モータ39が本体枠16に配設されている。これにより、コネクタ受部39aにコネクタを介して接続されたリード線が、前記開口部16aの裏側に垂れて本体枠16に対する前記図柄表示装置Kの取付けや取外しを邪魔することがないようにしてある。また実施例では、両駆動モータ39,39のコネクタ受部39a,39aが同じ側方を向くよう設定され、配線処理を本体枠16における片側のみで行なって、図柄表示装置Kに対して配線に基づくノイズの影響を抑制するよう構成される。   Each drive motor 39 is provided with a connector receiving portion 39a into which a connector (none of which is shown) disposed on a lead wire electrically connected to the control circuit device is inserted and connected. Each drive motor 39 is disposed on the main body frame 16 in such a posture that the insertion port 39a faces sideways. As a result, the lead wire connected to the connector receiving portion 39a via the connector does not hang down on the back side of the opening portion 16a so as to interfere with the attachment or removal of the symbol display device K from the main body frame 16. is there. In the embodiment, the connector receiving portions 39a, 39a of the drive motors 39, 39 are set so as to face the same side, and the wiring process is performed only on one side of the main body frame 16 so that wiring is performed with respect to the symbol display device K. Configured to suppress the effects of noise based on.

前記本体枠16には、前記制御回路装置に接続する原位置スイッチ41が左右両側に夫々配設され、各原位置スイッチ41は、対応するシャッター24,25の作動開閉部材23における後スライド部材31に設けた検出片31cを検出するよう構成される。そして、前記左右の駆動モータ39,39が開放方向に回転することで移動する対応の作動開閉部材23の検出片31cを原位置スイッチ41が検出したときに、制御回路装置が左右の駆動モータ39,39を停止制御することで、左右のシャッター24,25は開放状態に保持されるようになっている。また左右の駆動モータ39,39は、制御回路装置から発信されるパルス信号によって作動制御される。すなわち、検出片31cが原位置スイッチ41で検出されている開放状態(原点位置)を基準として、前記制御回路装置から発信されるパルス数を調整することで、作動開閉部材23,23を左右方向の任意の位置で停止したり、あるいは左右の所定範囲で往復移動を繰返すことができるよう構成される。例えば、開放状態の作動開閉部材23,23が閉鎖状態となるまでの数のパルス信号が発信されると、左右の駆動モータ39,39は、そのパルス信号に対応した回転量だけ回転した後に停止することで、左右のシャッター24,25は閉鎖状態に保持される。前記原位置スイッチ41としては、発光素子と受光素子とを離間して対向配置したフォトセンサが好適に使用されるが、磁気センサや機械式のセンサ等、各種の手段を採用し得る。   Original position switches 41 connected to the control circuit device are disposed on the left and right sides of the main body frame 16, and each original position switch 41 is a rear slide member 31 in the operation opening / closing member 23 of the corresponding shutter 24, 25. It is comprised so that the detection piece 31c provided in may be detected. The control circuit device detects the left and right drive motors 39 when the home position switch 41 detects the detection piece 31c of the corresponding operation opening / closing member 23 that moves as the left and right drive motors 39 and 39 rotate in the opening direction. , 39 is controlled so that the left and right shutters 24, 25 are held open. The left and right drive motors 39 are controlled by a pulse signal transmitted from the control circuit device. That is, by adjusting the number of pulses transmitted from the control circuit device with reference to the open state (origin position) where the detection piece 31c is detected by the home position switch 41, the operation opening and closing members 23, 23 are moved in the left-right direction. It is configured to be able to stop at an arbitrary position or to repeat the reciprocating movement in a predetermined range on the left and right. For example, when a number of pulse signals are transmitted until the open and closed operation opening and closing members 23 and 23 are closed, the left and right drive motors 39 and 39 stop after rotating by a rotation amount corresponding to the pulse signal. As a result, the left and right shutters 24 and 25 are kept closed. As the original position switch 41, a photo sensor in which a light emitting element and a light receiving element are spaced apart from each other is preferably used, but various means such as a magnetic sensor and a mechanical sensor may be employed.

ここで、閉鎖状態あるいは閉鎖状態と開放状態との途中に位置する作動開閉部材23を、開放状態とするためのパルス信号が制御回路装置から発信されたにも拘わらず、前記原位置スイッチ41が検出片31cを検出しない場合は、該原位置スイッチ41が検出片31cを検出するまで制御回路装置からパルス信号が発信され続けるよう設定されており、この場合には原位置スイッチ41が検出片31cを検出したときに駆動モータ39が停止制御されるようになっている。なお、実施例では作動開閉部材23が閉鎖状態となったことを確認するスイッチ(閉鎖確認スイッチ)は設けられていないが、該スイッチを設けるようにしてもよい。この場合は、開放状態あるいは開放状態と閉鎖状態との途中に位置する作動開閉部材23を、閉鎖状態とするためのパルス信号が制御回路装置から発信されたにも拘わらず、閉鎖確認スイッチが検出片31cを検出しないときには、該閉鎖確認スイッチが検出片31cを検出するまで制御回路装置からパルス信号を発信し続けるよう設定し、該閉鎖確認原位置スイッチが検出片31cを検出したときに駆動モータ39を停止制御するようにすれば、作動開閉部材23を確実に閉鎖状態とすることが可能となる。   Here, although the pulse signal for opening the operation opening / closing member 23 located in the middle of the closed state or the closed state and the open state is transmitted from the control circuit device, the original position switch 41 is When the detection piece 31c is not detected, it is set so that the pulse signal is continuously transmitted from the control circuit device until the original position switch 41 detects the detection piece 31c. In this case, the original position switch 41 is set to the detection piece 31c. When the motor is detected, the drive motor 39 is controlled to stop. In the embodiment, a switch for confirming that the operation opening / closing member 23 is in a closed state (closed confirmation switch) is not provided, but the switch may be provided. In this case, the closing confirmation switch detects that a pulse signal for closing the operation opening / closing member 23 located in the open state or in the middle of the open state and the closed state is transmitted from the control circuit device. When the piece 31c is not detected, it is set so that a pulse signal is continuously transmitted from the control circuit device until the closing confirmation switch detects the detecting piece 31c. When the closing confirmation original position switch detects the detecting piece 31c, the drive motor is set. If 39 is controlled to stop, the operation opening and closing member 23 can be reliably closed.

Then, according to the effect of the game, the shutter device 10 is controlled to perform an auxiliary effect in which the symbol display unit 14 of the symbol display device K is shielded or opened.

すなわち、シャッター装置10の開放状態(図10(a)参照)において、制御回路装置から発信される閉鎖制御に係るパルス信号に基いて、前記左右の駆動モータ39,39が所定方向に回転され、各ピニオン40が所定方向に回転すると、該ピニオン40とラック31bとの噛合作用下に前記作動開閉部材23が閉鎖方向に移動する。そして、作動開閉部材23における上下のリブ32,33が、従動開閉部材22における対応する上下のリブ29,30に係合することで(図10(b)参照)、該従動開閉部材22は作動開閉部材23と左右に連なった状態で一体的に閉鎖方向に移動する。   That is, in the open state of the shutter device 10 (see FIG. 10A), the left and right drive motors 39, 39 are rotated in a predetermined direction based on a pulse signal related to the closing control transmitted from the control circuit device. When each pinion 40 rotates in a predetermined direction, the operation opening / closing member 23 moves in the closing direction under the meshing action of the pinion 40 and the rack 31b. Then, when the upper and lower ribs 32 and 33 in the operation opening / closing member 23 are engaged with the corresponding upper and lower ribs 29 and 30 in the driven opening / closing member 22 (see FIG. 10B), the driven opening / closing member 22 operates. It moves in the closing direction integrally with the opening / closing member 23 in a state of being connected to the left and right.

ここで、左右のシャッター24,25の閉鎖動作を詳細に説明すれば、右シャッター24においては、駆動モータ39の回転によって作動開閉部材23が開放位置から左方に移動し、該作動開閉部材23における上下のリブ32,33が、従動開閉部材22における左側の上下のリブ29,30に右側から係合することで(図12参照)、該従動開閉部材22は作動開閉部材23に連なった状態で一体的に左方に移動する。また左シャッター25においては、駆動モータ39の回転によって作動開閉部材23が開放位置から右方に移動し、該作動開閉部材23における上下のリブ32,33が、従動開閉部材22における右側の上下のリブ29,30に左側から係合することで、該従動開閉部材22は作動開閉部材23に連なった状態で一体的に右方に移動する。そして、前記制御回路装置から発信されるパルス信号に対応する回転量だけ各駆動モータ39が回転すると、各駆動モータ39が停止制御される。これにより、左右のシャッター24,25の開閉部材22,23が何れも閉鎖位置に達し、シャッター装置10は、図1および図9(a)に示す閉鎖状態となり、前記図柄表示部14の前側は全体的に遮蔽される。   Here, the closing operation of the left and right shutters 24, 25 will be described in detail. In the right shutter 24, the operation opening / closing member 23 moves to the left from the open position by the rotation of the drive motor 39, and the operation opening / closing member 23. When the upper and lower ribs 32 and 33 are engaged with the left and right upper and lower ribs 29 and 30 of the driven opening and closing member 22 from the right side (see FIG. 12), the driven opening and closing member 22 is connected to the operating opening and closing member 23. To move all the way to the left. In the left shutter 25, the operation opening / closing member 23 moves to the right from the open position by the rotation of the drive motor 39, and the upper and lower ribs 32, 33 in the operation opening / closing member 23 By engaging the ribs 29 and 30 from the left side, the driven opening / closing member 22 integrally moves to the right while being connected to the operation opening / closing member 23. When each drive motor 39 rotates by the amount of rotation corresponding to the pulse signal transmitted from the control circuit device, each drive motor 39 is controlled to stop. As a result, the open / close members 22 and 23 of the left and right shutters 24 and 25 reach the closed position, and the shutter device 10 enters the closed state shown in FIGS. 1 and 9A, and the front side of the symbol display unit 14 is It is totally shielded.

なお、左右のシャッター24,25において、各作動開閉部材23および従動開閉部材22は、対応する上下の後ストッパ34および前ストッパ35,35で位置規制されて、閉鎖位置を越えて移動するのは確実に防止される。   In each of the left and right shutters 24 and 25, the operation opening / closing member 23 and the driven opening / closing member 22 are restricted by the corresponding upper and lower rear stoppers 34 and front stoppers 35 and 35, and move beyond the closed position. It is surely prevented.

次に、前記シャッター装置10の閉鎖状態において、前記制御回路装置から発信される開放制御に係るパルス信号に基いて、前記左右の駆動モータ39,39が前述の閉鎖動作とは反対方向に回転され、前記各ピニオン40が同じく前述とは反対方向に回転すると、該ピニオン40とラック31bとの噛合作用下に、各作動開閉部材23が開放方向に移動する。そして、作動開閉部材23における上下のリブ32,33が、従動開閉部材22における対応する上下のリブ29,30に係合することで(図9(b)参照)、該従動開閉部材22は作動開閉部材23の前側に重なった状態で一体的に開放方向に移動する。   Next, in the closed state of the shutter device 10, the left and right drive motors 39, 39 are rotated in the opposite direction to the aforementioned closing operation based on a pulse signal relating to the opening control transmitted from the control circuit device. When each pinion 40 rotates in the opposite direction, the operation opening / closing member 23 moves in the opening direction under the meshing action of the pinion 40 and the rack 31b. Then, when the upper and lower ribs 32 and 33 in the operation opening / closing member 23 are engaged with the corresponding upper and lower ribs 29 and 30 in the driven opening / closing member 22 (see FIG. 9B), the driven opening / closing member 22 operates. In an overlapped state with the front side of the opening / closing member 23, it moves integrally in the opening direction.

ここで、左右のシャッター24,25の開放動作を詳細に説明すれば、右シャッター24においては、駆動モータ39の回転によって作動開閉部材23が閉鎖位置から右方に移動し、該作動開閉部材23における上下のリブ32,33が、従動開閉部材22における右側の上下のリブ29,30に左側から係合することで(図11参照)、該従動開閉部材22は作動開閉部材23の前側に重なった状態で一体的に右方に移動する。また左シャッター25においては、駆動モータ39の回転によって作動開閉部材23が閉鎖位置から左方に移動し、該作動開閉部材23における上下のリブ32,33が、従動開閉部材22における左側の上下のリブ29,30に右側から係合することで、該従動開閉部材22は作動開閉部材23の前側に重なった状態で一体的に左方に移動する。そして、前記制御回路装置から発信されるパルス信号に対応する回転量だけ各駆動モータ39が回転すると、各駆動モータ39が停止制御される。これにより、左右のシャッター24,25の開閉部材22,23が何れも開放位置に達し、シャッター装置10は開放状態となり、前記図柄表示部14の前側は全体的に開放される。このとき、駆動モータ39や開閉部材22,23が正常に作動していれば、前記各原位置スイッチ41が検出片31cを検出し、シャッター装置10が開放状態となったことが確認される。但し、各原位置スイッチ41が検出片31cを検出しなければ、該スイッチ41が検出片31cを検出するまで各駆動モータ39は回転を継続し、原位置スイッチ41が検出片31cを検出した時点で各駆動モータ39は停止制御される。なお、左右のシャッター24,25において、各作動開閉部材23および従動開閉部材22は、本体枠16で位置規制されて、開放位置を越えて移動するのは確実に防止される。   Here, the opening operation of the left and right shutters 24, 25 will be described in detail. In the right shutter 24, the operation opening / closing member 23 moves to the right from the closed position by the rotation of the drive motor 39, and the operation opening / closing member 23. The upper and lower ribs 32 and 33 are engaged with the upper and lower ribs 29 and 30 on the right side of the driven opening and closing member 22 from the left side (see FIG. 11), so that the driven opening and closing member 22 overlaps the front side of the operating opening and closing member 23. Move to the right as a unit. In the left shutter 25, the operation opening / closing member 23 moves to the left from the closed position by the rotation of the drive motor 39, and the upper and lower ribs 32, 33 in the operation opening / closing member 23 By engaging the ribs 29 and 30 from the right side, the driven opening / closing member 22 moves integrally to the left in a state where it is overlapped with the front side of the operation opening / closing member 23. When each drive motor 39 rotates by the amount of rotation corresponding to the pulse signal transmitted from the control circuit device, each drive motor 39 is controlled to stop. As a result, the open / close members 22 and 23 of the left and right shutters 24 and 25 reach the open position, the shutter device 10 is opened, and the front side of the symbol display unit 14 is opened as a whole. At this time, if the drive motor 39 and the opening / closing members 22 and 23 are operating normally, each of the original position switches 41 detects the detection piece 31c, and it is confirmed that the shutter device 10 is in the open state. However, if each home position switch 41 does not detect the detection piece 31c, each drive motor 39 continues to rotate until the switch 41 detects the detection piece 31c, and when the home position switch 41 detects the detection piece 31c. Thus, each drive motor 39 is controlled to stop. In each of the left and right shutters 24 and 25, the operation opening / closing member 23 and the driven opening / closing member 22 are position-regulated by the main body frame 16, and are reliably prevented from moving beyond the open position.

前記左右のシャッター24,25の開閉動作に際し、前記各従動開閉部材22は、前記カバー部材36に配設された対応する板バネ37によって所要の負荷が付与されているから、作動開閉部材23のリブ32,33が対応するリブ29,30に係合していない状態であっても、該従動開閉部材22が簡単には移動することはない。すなわち、例えば前記図柄表示部14で行なわれる演出に合わせて、作動開閉部材23のみを所定範囲で往復移動する場合に、該作動開閉部材23の移動に伴う振動によって従動開閉部材22が左右方向に移動してしまうのを防止し、意図した演出を確実に行なわせることができる。また、作動開閉部材23のリブ32,33が従動開閉部材22の対応するリブ29,30に勢いよく当接した場合に、該従動開閉部材22のリブ29,30が作動開閉部材23のリブ32,33から離間するように移動してしまうのを抑制することができ、見栄えの良い開閉動作が実施される。なお、従動開閉部材22には板バネ37により常に所要の負荷が付与されているから、作動開閉部材23のリブ32,33が従動開閉部材22の対応するリブ29,30に勢いよく当接した際に、該従動開閉部材22が上下のレール部材19,20に対して傾くのを抑制することができ、その後の従動開閉部材22の開閉動作に支障を来たすことはなく、図柄表示部14での演出と連携する演出を行なうことができる。   When the left and right shutters 24 and 25 are opened and closed, each driven opening and closing member 22 is given a required load by a corresponding leaf spring 37 disposed on the cover member 36. Even when the ribs 32 and 33 are not engaged with the corresponding ribs 29 and 30, the driven opening / closing member 22 does not easily move. That is, for example, when only the operation opening / closing member 23 is reciprocated within a predetermined range in accordance with the effect performed in the symbol display unit 14, the driven opening / closing member 22 is moved in the left-right direction due to vibration accompanying the movement of the operation opening / closing member 23. It can be prevented from moving, and the intended performance can be surely performed. Further, when the ribs 32, 33 of the actuation opening / closing member 23 vigorously contact the corresponding ribs 29, 30 of the driven opening / closing member 22, the ribs 29, 30 of the driven opening / closing member 22 are the ribs 32 of the actuation opening / closing member 23. , 33 can be prevented from moving away from each other, and an open / close operation with good appearance is performed. Since the required load is always applied to the driven opening / closing member 22 by the leaf spring 37, the ribs 32, 33 of the operation opening / closing member 23 abruptly contact the corresponding ribs 29, 30 of the driven opening / closing member 22. In this case, the driven opening / closing member 22 can be prevented from being tilted with respect to the upper and lower rail members 19, 20, and the subsequent opening / closing operation of the driven opening / closing member 22 is not hindered. It is possible to perform an effect in cooperation with the effect.

すなわち、実施例では、シャッター作動手段26,27には連繋されていない従動開閉部材22に対し、板バネ37により左右方向の移動に対して所要の負荷を付与するよう構成したから、図柄表示部14での演出に連携した動作を確実に行なわせることができ、遊技性や娯楽性を向上させ得る。また、従動開閉部材22に負荷を付与する板バネ37は、カバー部材36に対して、その両端部を挿通孔36b,36bに挿通するだけで取付けるよう構成したから、該板バネ37の取付けおよび取外しが容易で、かつネジ等の固定手段も必要としないから部品点数を低減して製造コストを低廉に抑えることができる。   That is, in the embodiment, the symbol opening and closing member 22 that is not linked to the shutter actuating means 26, 27 is configured to apply a required load to the movement in the left-right direction by the leaf spring 37. 14 can be surely performed in conjunction with the performance at No. 14, and the game and entertainment can be improved. Further, the leaf spring 37 for applying a load to the driven opening / closing member 22 is configured to be attached to the cover member 36 simply by inserting both end portions thereof into the insertion holes 36b, 36b. Since it is easy to remove and does not require fixing means such as screws, the number of parts can be reduced and the manufacturing cost can be kept low.

. 実施例では、作動開閉部材と従動開閉部材とに夫々リブを設け、該リブを係合させることで作動開閉部材の移動に伴って従動開閉部材を移動させるよう構成したが、両開閉部材を係合して一体で移動させる係合手段および被係合手段の構成は実施例に限定されるものでなく、例えば作動開閉部材に突設した突起を、従動開閉部材に形成した長孔に挿入しておき、作動開閉部材の移動に伴って突起が長孔の左右の端部に当接することで従動開閉部材が一体に移動する構成等、その他の構成を適宜に採用し得る。
. 実施例では、開閉部材を左右方向に移動して閉鎖状態と開放状態とに変化させる場合で説明したが、該開閉部材を上下方向に移動することで閉鎖状態と開放状態とに変化させる構成であっても、従動開閉部材の上下方向の移動に対して板バネ等の負荷付与手段により所要の負荷を付与するようにすることで、実施例と同様の作用効果が得られる。なお、この場合における開閉部材の移動構造としては、例えば本件出願人の出願に係る特開2004−135885号公報に開示の構成を採用すればよい。
