Title (EN) A METHOD AND A TOOL FOR SHAPING AN ELONGATED DEFORMABLE MEMBER FOR A HEARING AID
(FR) METHODE ET OUTIL DE MISE EN FORME D’UNE PIECE ALLONGEE DEFORMABLE DESTINEE A UNE PROTHESE AUDITIVE
Abstract:
(EN) A tool (20) and a method for shaping an elongated deformable member for a hearing aid (1). The tool (20) is manufactured using a rapid prototyping process. The tool comprises a first holding means (21) for a first end of the elongated member, a second holding means (31) for holding a second end of the elongated member, and positioning means (26, 28) for positioning and holding intermediate parts of said elongated member between said first end and said second end in a fixed desired shape. The shaping a of the deformable elongated member comprises the steps of placing the first end of the elongated member in a predetermined position, positioning said intermediate parts of said elongated member in a predetermined position, placing the second end of the elongated member in a predetermined position, heating said elongated member, and cooling said elongated member.
(FR) Outil (20) et méthode de mise en forme d’une pièce allongée déformable destinée à une prothèse auditive (1). L’outil (20) est fabriqué à l’aide d’un processus de prototypage rapide. L’outil se compose d’un premier moyen de maintien (21) pour une première extrémité de la pièce allongée, d’un second moyen de maintien (31) pour une seconde extrémité de la pièce allongée, ainsi que de moyens de positionnement (26, 28) pour le placement et le maintien, dans une forme fixe souhaitée, de sections intermédiaires de ladite pièce allongée entre lesdites deux extrémités. La méthode de mise en forme de la pièce allongée déformable se compose de plusieurs étapes : placement de la première extrémité de la pièce allongée dans une position prédéterminée ; placement desdites sections intermédiaires de ladite pièce allongée dans une position prédéterminée ; placement de la seconde extrémité de la pièce allongée dans une position prédéterminée ; chauffage puis refroidissement de ladite pièce allongée.
