BATTERY DOOR WITH INTEGRAL DISPLAY LENS

by Charles A. Actor and Henry Wandt

  With an ever increasing focus on product cost reduc- tion and manufacturing efficiency, product designers are considering more creative ways to combine the func- tions once preformed by multiple parts into a single part.

  The invention described herein provides a method, with the least number of parts, to effect a page housing assembly incorporating both a battery door and a dis- play lens. This design insures the highest possible assem- bly etliciency due to the z-axis loading of the pager inter-

nals into the housing and the z-axis battery door installation.

  The basic design was intended to be applicable to optically clear housing material. However, by two-shot molding or sonically welding a clear lens within the bat- tery door it is possible to use opaque material for the housing and the battery door.

The figure below illustrates this invention.
