Title: SUPPORT APPARATUS FOR FOLDABLE FLEXIBLE SCREEN AND DISPLAY DEVICE USING THE SUPPORT APPARATUS
Abstract:
A support apparatus for a foldable flexible screen and a display device using the support apparatus. The support apparatus comprises: a first support plate (21) and a second support plate (22) constructed for supporting and fixing a flexible screen (12); and a rotating shaft component (3), the rotating shaft component (3) being constructed for connecting the first support plate (21) and the second support plate (22) and allowing the first support plate (21) and the second support plate (22) to rotate relative to each other. Either the first support plate (21) or the second support plate (22) is provided with a slide groove, a rotating shaft is provided at a side of the rotating shaft component (3); the rotating shaft can slide and rotate in the slide groove, and the direction in which the slide groove extends is not perpendicular to the length direction of the support plate on which the slide groove is located. The support apparatus for the foldable flexible screen can reduce a tensile force on the flexible screen (12); at the same time, the flexible screen (12) in a folded state can be tightly affixed to the first support plate (21) and to the second support plate (22). In addition, because the gap between the first support plate (21) and the second support plate (22) is adjustable, the flatness of the flexible screen (12) can be maintained.
