Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods and apparatus for creating an overall assembly formed from a transparent member and a metal member are disclosed. According to one aspect of the present invention, a method includes positioning a transparent member in a mold configured for insertion molding, and providing a liquid metal into the mold. The method also includes hardening the liquid metal in the mold. Hardening the liquid metal includes binding the metal to the transparent member to create the integral assembly.
(FR)L'invention concerne des procédés et un appareil permettant de créer un ensemble global formé à partir d'un organe transparent et d'un organe en métal. Selon un aspect de la présente invention, un procédé comprend le positionnement d'un organe transparent dans un moule configuré pour un moulage par insertion et l'obtention d'un état liquide dans le moule. Le procédé comprend également le durcissement du métal liquide dans le moule. Le durcissement du métal liquide comprend la liaison du métal à l'organe transparent pour créer l'ensemble solidaire.
