Abstract (en)

The headlamp includes a lamp recess (204) formed directly in the flange (22), with an exterior surface of the wall (201) of the plastic injection moulded reflector mirror surrounding the lamp recess and presenting w.r.t the direction of removal, a tapered angle. Provided between this surface and the support arrangement of the lamp, are adapters (2011,2012,2013) forming for these surfaces, support arrangements in a plane parallel to the optical axis.

Abstract (fr)

Un projecteur de véhicule automobile comprend une lampe montée dans un miroir (20) et une glace de fermeture. La lampe possède des aménagements d'appui dans un plan perpendiculaire à son axe et est montée dans le miroir avec son axe perpendiculaire à un axe optique du miroir. Le miroir est réalisé par injection de matière plastique en étant démoulé selon une direction parallèle audit axe optique, et possède au moins une joue (22) adjacente à une zone de fond (21). Selon l'invention, un trou de lampe (204) est formé directement dans ladite joue, une surface extérieure d'une paroi (201) du miroir entourant le trou de lampe présente par rapport à la direction de démoulage un angle de dépouille, et il est prévu entre ladite surface et lesdits aménagements d'appui de la lampe des moyens d'adaptation (2011, 2012, 2013) formant pour lesdits aménagements des surfaces d'appui dans un plan parallèle audit axe optique. On évite ainsi le recours à une pièce intermédiaire pour le montage de la lampe. <IMAGE>
