Description

CHAMPABLE IRONING TABLE ON THE TOP OF AN APPLIANCES. OBJECT OF THE INVENTION The following invention, as expressed in the statement of the present specification, refers to a retractable ironing board on the countertop of an appliance, being especially useful for its adaptation to countertops of washing machines, dryers and dishwashers, so that in the appliance's own countertop a cabin has been made in which a ironing board is stowed, duly folded, allowing the ironing board to be stored in a space that, as is known, is not used. Thus, by integrating an ironing board on the countertop of an appliance, that is, by integrating it into a domestic appliance, space savings are achieved, by creating a perfectly adapted place to store the ironing board while not is being used In addition, of course, the ironing board can be used at any time, that is, both when the household appliance is in operation and when it is not in operation. SCOPE. This report describes a retractable ironing board on the countertop of an appliance, being of special application for adaptation to domestic appliances such as washing machines, dryers and dishwashers. BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION As it is well known, currently, the countertops of household appliances, such as those of washing machines, dryers and dishwashers, are manufactured based on a chipboard board in relation to which a series of decorative and fixing elements are mounted, giving to the set a double aesthetic function and upper closure of the apparatus. In this way, the upper surface of the apparatus is used, basically, as a surface on which certain elements simply decorative or not, but without obtaining any utility added to it, to the simple occupation of space by the apparatus. On the other hand, the ironing boards are elements that, conventionally, are conceived as independent elements to the rest of the furniture of the home. This causes, in most cases, that a specific space or cabin is not available in homes to be stored. In short, it happens that the ironing boards, except in those homes that have a specific cabin for their use, are authentic "hindrances" that it is not known where to keep them so that they disturb as little as possible. Likewise, we can cite the Spanish invention patent P200301119 in which an appliance countertop convertible into an ironing board is described, being especially useful for application in washing machines and dishwashers, so that the appliance countertop body presents its middle part central defined by at least one extendable piece and its two lateral parts converging centrally, once extended its central middle part, defining an ironing board with a continuous flat work surface, and whose central middle part of the countertop body is defined for a couple of extendable pieces. DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION This report describes a retractable ironing board on the countertop of an appliance, being especially useful for its application in washing machines, dryers and domestic dishwashers, so that in the countertop body of the appliance has been made a cage of location of a removable body, in which it incorporates an ironing board, said body being fitted in the recess defined in the countertop body itself and presenting means for anchoring the ironing board to the removable body allowing its horizontal work positioning according to Very different angular positions. The recess made in the appliance countertop covers practically the entire countertop front, leaving its free top surface, the device can remain embedded, or with its free top surface arranged to place on it any desired object or tool. On the other hand, the ironing board, in its "collected" position, is bent over itself and rotatably attached to the removable body on which it sits in a transverse position, allowing the body to move from one position to another. The anchoring means of the ironing board to the positioning body are defined by a rotating joint shaft and the board being folded in two halves, so that said rotating joint allows the ironing board in its horizontal deployed working position to be able to adopt very different positions adapting to the location. In addition, a folding leg can be associated with the external middle section of the ironing board, with respect to the ironing board itself, which will allow its perfect seating in the deployed position, that is, in its working position. To complement the description that is going to be carried out below, and in order to help a better understanding of the characteristics of the invention, this descriptive report is accompanied by a set of drawings, whose figures are illustrative and not limiting , the most characteristic details of the invention are represented. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DESIGNS. Figure 1. Shows a perspective view of a washing machine equipped with a countertop on whose front a recess has been made for the location of a removable body carrying an ironing board, being able to observe how with the carrying body of the ironing board fitted The washer has a conventional aesthetic. Figure 2. It shows a perspective view of the washing machine of the previous figure initiating the extraction of the removable body carrying an ironing board. Figure 3. Shows a perspective view of the washing machine of Figure 1 with the removable body carrying an ironing board in a more external position. Figure 4. Shows a perspective view of the washing machine of Figure 1 with the removable body carrying an ironing board in its outermost position, the ironing board being folded in a transverse position. Figure 5. It shows a perspective view of the washing machine of figure 1 with the removable body carrying an ironing board in its outermost position with the ironing board folded on itself and rotated 90 °. Figure 6. Shows a perspective view of the washing machine of Figure 1 with the removable body carrying an ironing board in its outermost position with the ironing board in an intermediate deployment position, being able to observe a support leg folded in The ironing board itself. Figure 7. Shows a perspective view of the washing machine of Figure 1 with the removable body carrying an ironing board in its outermost position with the ironing board deployed to its horizontal position. Figure 8. Shows a perspective view of the washing machine of Figure 1 with the removable body carrying an ironing board in its outermost position with the ironing board deployed to its horizontal position starting the deployment of a support leg. Figure 9. Shows a perspective view of the washing machine of Figure 1 with the removable body carrying an ironing board in its outermost position with the ironing board deployed to its horizontal position and with the support leg, also, deployed . DESCRIPTION OF A PREFERRED EMBODIMENT. In view of the aforementioned figures and in accordance with the numbering adopted we can observe how the household appliance 1, for example, an automatic washing machine, has a worktop 2, provided with a recess 3, in which a removable body 4 is fitted for the location and positioning of an ironing board 5. Thus, the recess 3 in which the removable body 4 fits, covers, practically, the entire front of the apparatus 1 leaving its upper surface free, and to the said removable body 4 it is joined, so swivel, ironing board 5 and seated in transverse position. In this way, the ironing board 5 is folded seated on the removable body 4 in transverse position when it is not used and can be fitted in the front recess 3 of the appliance countertop, taking advantage of a space that is not used to store an element for which normally does not have a place for it. On the other hand, when the table 5 is going to be used, the body 4 of the passenger compartment or recessed 3 of the countertop 2 of the household appliance 1 will be removed, in which it is retracted, proceeding to the unfolding of the ironing table 5 to be arranged in its horizontal position of use, while at the end of its use it will be folded and stored again being left retracted on the countertop of the appliance. Thus, for deployment, as shown in the attached figures, proceed as follows: the body 4 of the recess 3 of the countertop 2 of the corresponding appliance in which it is retracted will be removed, proceeding to rotate, the table 5 ironing, still folded on itself, with respect to its axis of attachment to the body 4 and then the ironing board 5 will be deployed to its horizontal position, to finally deploy the support leg 6 and the ironing board 5 remain , perfectly seated, ready for use. The body 4, for example, may be arranged between guides for its displacement and the ironing board, with respect to the body 4 to which it is rotatably attached, may be positioned according to different angular positions, being able to cover, practically, an angle of 180 °, allowing its adaptation to the location. In this way, in figure 9 of the designs it is observed how the ironing board 5 can rotate in the direction of the arrows A, allowing its positioning according to the location of the apparatus 1 itself, as to the existing furniture in its place of Location. Thus, in a conventionally unused place we define a space to store an object (ironing board), perfectly retracted without modifying the aesthetics of the device, for which it is not It has a specific place for this purpose. On the other hand, for the folding operation of the ironing board, as well as to be collected and stored, proceed in the opposite direction to that described for deployment. On the other hand, the optional support leg can be materialized by an independent element, also housed in the recess 3 when not in use, and which for use will be placed in the most appropriate place for its greater effectiveness. Logically, since the function of the support leg is to give stability to the ironing board 5 when it is being used, said ironing board 5 may lack the same giving it adequate stability by itself.
