Title: DEVICE AND METHOD FOR PROCESSING A COVER, ASSEMBLY FOR A VEHICLE ROOF, AND VEHICLE ROOF FOR A MOTOR VEHICLE
Abstract:
A device (10) for processing a cover (5) for a motor vehicle (1) comprises a bottom tool (20) which has a sealing element (22), a first recess, and a second recess at a distance from the first recess. The sealing element (22) is arranged partially in the first recess of the bottom tool (20) so that it extends opposite a surface of the bottom tool (20). The sealing element (22) and the second recess of the bottom tool (20) are designed to delimit a cavity in a predefined manner in interaction with a bottom side (52) of the cover (5). The device (10) also comprises a counter bearing (26) which is designed to exert a counter force on a top side (51) of the cover (5) in the direction of the bottom tool (20) when the cavity is formed on the bottom side (52) of the cover (5), so that a foamed portion (7) can be formed by means of the bottom tool (20) and the counter bearing (26) on the bottom side (52) of the cover (5), at a distance from an edge (53) of the cover (5) so that the edge (53) of the cover (5) remains free of foam.
