Referring to FIG. 25, the outer center distance of the hole in the vertical direction is calculated by calculating the length of the arc of the half circle by 180 degrees in the semicircular shape when the flexible display panel is folded, and reflects the position value Because

Therefore, the length between the centers of the slots in the vertical direction is equal to the length between the support plate shaft holes in the outer lower support plates A, B, C (40, 41, 42) disposed on the right and left sides of the lower support plate block, The lower surface of the film is folded in a semicircular shape, and a length of 1/2 of the length deviation of the arc with respect to the turning radius is the hole-center length of the slot in the vertical direction.

Referring to FIGS. 25, 26, and 27, when the flexible display panel is expanded, the upper support plate fixing pillars at the lower end of the body case are pushed outward from the lower support plates A, B, C Of the elongated hole in the vertical direction,

When the flexible display panel is folded, the upper support plate fixing column at the lower end inside the body case is positioned at the center of the outermost end of the elongated hole in the vertical direction of the outer lower support plates A, B, C (40, 41, 42).

As a result, the outer bottom plate A, B, and C (40, 41, and 42) are modularized in the vertical plane of the upper plate 10, In addition,

B and C (40, 41, 42) are slid in the hole center distance of the long hole by the long hole in the vertical direction of the outer lower support plates A, B, C And flatten out the flexible display panel from the outside, folding it into a semicircle, and protecting it.

In order to implement the above-described operation, a column for fixing the upper support plate is disposed at the lower end of the body case,

Referring to FIG. 19, the column for fixing the upper support plate is formed in a round shape like a column at the lower end of the inside of the body case. As shown in FIG. 21, the upper center of the column has tabs for fastening bolts for fastening.

The upper support plate fixing pillars at the lower end of the body case serve to control the outer lower support plates A, B, C (40, 41, 42) to slide only within the stroke range and to fix the upper support plate 10 And,

In order to prevent the flexible display panel from touching the flexible display panel from the bottom to the bottom of the body case on the left and right sides and to prevent the display panel from being dented down when pressed, The upper support plate fixing column is placed so that it can be fastened by fixing the upper support plate.

Accordingly, a tab is provided at the center of the upper surface of the column for fixing the upper support plate, and the space at the lower end of the upper support plate 10 and the inner surface of the body case is constantly and firmly held and supported

Further, it functions to control the position of the outer lower support plates A, B, C (40, 41, 42) in the vertical direction and to prevent the lower support plate block from falling off when folded or unfolded.

Referring to FIGS. 24 and 25, the side cover 80 connects the left and right sides and the lower surface of the flexible display device except the upper surface of the flexible display panel, in which the body case is separated from the left side and the right side, respectively Structure,

Since the lower support plate block located in the inner space of the side cover 80 is closely contacted with the contact surfaces with the body case, waterproof and dustproof can be performed,

It is made to be connected through the joining method such as double-sided tape, heat fusion, double injection, etc. without the left and right body case and gap, and is made using a tough material having elasticity.

 When the flexible display device is folded, the folded center portion of the side cover 80 is compressed to form a small semicircle. When the flexible display device is folded, the side cover 80 is stretched by the stretchability toward the outer diameter and wraps the outer diameter of the lower base plate block. And the surface of the flexible display panel and the bottom surface of the body case are compressed so as to be horizontal.
