Title: INSTRUMENT PANEL FORMING METHOD, INSTRUMENT PANEL, AND INSTRUMENT PANEL FORMING APPARATUS
Abstract:
An instrument panel forming method is provided with: a first supply step for closing a frame-shaped core 215 to form a configuration in which a cavity is separated into a base material part-forming section and a different material part-forming section and for supplying a base material 103 that will form the base material part and the different material 303 that will form the different material part into the cavity; and a second supply step for opening, with the pressure applied on the different material 303 maintained to be greater than the pressure applied on the base material 103, the frame-shaped core 215 to bring the base material 103 into contact with the different material 303 and cause the different material 303 to protrude into the base material 103 in the central section of the boundary between the base material 103 and the different material 303 in the thickness direction of the base material 103 and the different material 303 where solidification of the base material 103 and the different material 303 is delayed. For the instrument panel forming method, the instrument panel and the instrument panel forming apparatus, instrument panels can be manufactured with a reduced number of man-hours.
