Title (EN) A STEERING WHEEL AND A METHOD OF MANUFACTURING A STEERING WHEEL
(FR) VOLANT DE DIRECTION ET PROCEDE DE FABRICATION D'UN VOLANT DE DIRECTION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A steering wheel (1) has spokes (5) extending outwardly from a boss (3) to a rim (6). The rim has an inner frame (6) with an integrally moulded plastics coating (9) which has an internal cavity (11). The presence of the cavity minimises the overall weight of the steering wheel. The cavity is formed by initially injecting hot plastics material into a substantially vertical mould and subsequently blowing air into the lower part of the mould after some of the plastic adjacent the mould of walls has cooled.
(FR)L'invention concerne un volant (1) de direction pourvu de rayons (5) s'étendant vers l'extérieur d'un bossage (3) vers un rebord (6). Le rebord présente une structure intérieure (6) avec un revêtement (9) de plastique intégralement moulé comprenant une cavité interne (11). La présence de la cavité minimise le poids total du volant de direction. La cavité est formée par injection initiale d'un matériau plastique chaud dans un moule sensiblement vertical, puis par soufflage d'air dans la partie inférieure du moule après le refroidissement d'une partie du plastique adjacent aux parois du moule.
