Samsung SDI : Patent Issued for Locking Apparatus for Case and Case Having the Same

04/22/2015 | 05:31pm US/Eastern

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Electronics Newsweekly -- Samsung SDI Co., Ltd. (Gyeonggi-do, KR) has been issued patent number 9004549, according to news reporting originating out of Alexandria, Virginia, by VerticalNews editors.

The patent's inventor is Lee, Won-Il (Yongin-si, KR).

This patent was filed on July 23, 2012 and was published online on April 14, 2015.

From the background information supplied by the inventors, news correspondents obtained the following quote: "The described technology generally relates to a locking apparatus for a case and a case having the same, more particularly, to a locking apparatus for a case having an excellent dynamic sensitivity and a case having the same.

"In general, a locking apparatus (e.g., a latch mechanism) allows detachment and attachment between a component (e.g., a battery pack) and a product (e.g., a computing device).

"A variety of latch structures may be formed at the case which contains or is incorporated into a product or component such that the product and component can be detached when a user moves a knob of the latch."

Supplementing the background information on this patent, VerticalNews reporters also obtained the inventor's summary information for this patent: "One inventive aspect is a locking apparatus of a case and a case having the same wherein a deformation caused by repeated uses of the latch by providing a reinforcing member to the latch is minimized and the deformation caused by the movement of and assembly of the latch can also be prevented.

"Another aspect is a locking apparatus for a case which includes; an operating knob formed at the outside of the case; a latch connected with the operating knob formed at the inner side of the case and installed to be slidable with respect to the case; wherein the latch includes a body portion connecting to the operating knob, an opposite wall portion extending from an edge of one side of the body portion, a hitch member formed in the other side of the body portion and a reinforcing member disposed between the opposite wall portion.

"In one embodiment, the reinforcing member includes a case formed to come in contact with both sides of the opposite wall.

"The reinforcing member may be formed as an elliptical shape.

"In one embodiment, the reinforcing member has a Z type formed continuously more than one time up and down.

"The reinforcing member may contain at least any one selected from the group consisting of polycarbonate (PC), PolyOxyMethylene (POM) and ABC polycarbonate.

"The opposite wall and the reinforcing member may be integrally formed.

"The opposite wall portion may be formed to have a closed shape.

"The locking apparatus may include a guide member fixed and installed within an inner surface of the case along the upper and the lower portions of the latch to guide the sliding of the latch.

"A pair of outer protrusions may be formed at an outer side corresponding to the opposite wall portion and a protruding hitch portion is concavely formed toward the opposite wall portion side to engage with a pair of outer protrusion portions.

"The center of the reinforcing member may be located in line with a pair of outer protrusions.

"At least one protrusion spaced in a predetermined interval may be further formed at the inner side facing a guiding member.

"At least one inner side protrusion may be formed at the inner side of the opposite wall portion.

"A through-hole may be formed at the case of a region connected to the operating knob and the latch.

"A hitch member moveable member may be formed at the case so that the hitch member is exposed to the outside of the case or is inserted into the inner portion of the case based on the sliding of the latch.

"The body portion of the latch may be stepped to more protrude from the inner side of the case than the hitch member.

"A unit, provided with a groove accommodating the hitch member at the position corresponding to the case and the hitch member of the latch, detaches the case from the unit according to the sliding operation of the latch.

"A case having a locking apparatus includes a latch including a body portion connected with a operating knob, an opposite wall portion extending from an edge of one side of the body portion, a hitch member formed at the other side of the body portion, and a reinforcing member positioned between the opposite wall portion.

"The operating knob is formed at an outer side of the case, and the latch is connected with the operating knob, and is formed at the inner side of the case to be slidable to the case.

"The reinforcing member is formed to come in contact with both sides of the opposite wall portion.

"The case may contain or be incorporated into a battery pack or a portable computer.

"Another aspect is a locking apparatus for a case comprising: an operating knob formed at an external surface of the case; a latch connected to the operating knob and configured to slide with respect to the case; wherein the latch comprises i) a body portion connected to the operating knob, ii) an opposite wall portion having opposite walls which extend from a first side of the body portion, iii) a hitch member formed on a second side of the body portion, wherein the first and second sides are opposing each other, and iv) a reinforcing member disposed between the opposite walls.

"In the above apparatus, the reinforcing member is configured to expand and contract based on pressure applied from the opposite wall portion. In the above apparatus, the reinforcing member has an elliptical shape. In the above apparatus, the reinforcing member has one of the following shapes: a 'Z' shape, a '>' shape, a '<' shape and a zigzag shape. In the above apparatus, the reinforcing member is formed of at least one of the following: Polycarbonate (PC), PolyOxyMethylene (POM) and ABC polycarbonate. In the above apparatus, the opposite wall portion and the reinforcing member are integrally formed.

"In the above apparatus, the opposite walls are connected to each other so that the opposite wall portion has a closed shape. The above apparatus further comprises a guide member fixedly formed in an inner surface of the case along upper and lower portions of the latch to guide the latch to slide therethrough.

"The above apparatus further comprises: at least one outer protrusion formed at an outer surface of the opposite wall portion; and a protruding hitch portion protruding toward the opposite wall portion and configured to be engaged with the outer protrusion.

"In the above apparatus, the center of the reinforcing member is substantially aligned with the outer protrusion. The above apparatus further comprises at least one protrusion spaced in a predetermined interval and formed along surfaces of the guiding member which face each other. The above apparatus further comprises at least one protrusion formed along inner surfaces of the opposite wall portion.

"In the above apparatus, a through-hole is formed at a portion of the case which is connected to the operating knob and the latch. In the above apparatus, a hitch member moveable hole is formed at the case so that the hitch member is exposed from the case or is inserted into the case based on the sliding of the latch. In the above apparatus, the body portion of the latch is stepped to protrude more from the case than the hitch member.

"In the above apparatus, a groove is formed in a device which is connectable to and detachable from the case, and wherein the groove is configured to accommodate the hitch member at the position corresponding to the case and the hitch member of the latch and to detach the case from the device according to a sliding operation of the latch.

"Another aspect is a case having a locking apparatus, wherein the locking apparatus comprises: a body portion connected to the operating knob; an opposite wall portion having opposite walls which extend from a first side of the body portion; a hitch member formed on a second side of the body portion, wherein the first and second sides are opposing each other; and a reinforcing member disposed between the opposite walls.

"In the above case, the reinforcing member has one of the following shapes: a 'Z' shape, a '>' shape, a '<' shape and a zigzag shape. In the above case, the reinforcing member is configured to expand and contract based on pressure applied from the opposite wall portion. The case contains or is incorporated into a power supply device or a computing device which is connectable to or detachable from the power supply device."
