車両用計器及びその製造方法

Vehicle instrument and manufacturing method thereof

Abstract

【課題】昼と夜とで見栄えを変えることができると共に、表示板1に印刷された表記部5を含む指標が、立体的に見える車両用計器及びその製造方法を提供する。 【解決手段】側方から表示板1内に照明光を導入するエッジライト照明式の車両用計器であって、透明の表示板1の裏側に、指標となる表記部5を有する印刷部1aを有する。また、表記部5の影に相当する位置に、表側から見たときに立体表示部5bとなる窪み5b1を有し、この窪み5b1は、傾斜面10と垂直面11を有する。印刷部1aの塗料が窪み5b1内に流れこんでも、垂直面11があるため、傾斜面10まで覆うことがなく、より確実に傾斜面10で照明光を反射することができる。昼と夜とで見栄えを変えることができると共に、表側から見たときに、表示板1の表記部5が窪み5b1によって、立体的に見える。 【選択図】図6
PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a vehicle instrument of which appearance can be changed during daytime and nighttime, and in which an indicator including an indicating portion 5 printed on a display board 1 can be three-dimensionally viewed, and a manufacturing method of the vehicle instrument.SOLUTION: A vehicle instrument of an edge-light illumination type, in which illumination light is laterally introduced onto a display board 1, includes: a printed portion 1a which has an indicating portion 5 as an indicator on the rear side of the transparent display board 1; and a dent 5b1 which becomes a three-dimensional display portion 5b when viewed from the front side, at a position corresponding to shadow of the indicating portion 5. The dent 5b1 has an inclined plane 10 and a vertical plane 11. Even when coating on the printed portion 1a flows into the dent 5b1, the vertical plane 11 avoids the inclined plane 10 to be covered by the coating: therefore the illumination light can be more reliably reflected on the inclined plane 10. In the vehicle instrument, appearance can be changed during daytime and nighttime and the indicating portion 5 of the display board 1 can be three-dimensionally viewed from the front side by the dent 5b1.
