Abstract (en)

The headlamp unit has a cup-shaped light shield (2) positioned between a rear reflector (1) and a lamp glass for covering the light bulb (3) and shielding the direct light emitted by the latter. The light shield has a base (4) provided by a cover attached to a double-walled peripheral sidewall (5) attached to the rear reflector via a support element. The outer wall (9) of the peripheral sidewall and the cover of the light shield are formed from a single sheet metal blank.

Abstract (de)

Der Scheinwerfer weist eine becherförmige Blende (2) zwischen einem Reflektor (1) und einer Lichtscheibe auf. Die Blende dient sowohl zur Abschirmung von direkt aus einer Lichtquelle (3) austretenden Lichtstrahlen als auch zur Abdeckung der Lichtquelle (3). Die Seitenwand (5) der becherförmigen Blende (2) ist doppelwandig ausgeführt, und ihr Boden (4), welcher als Deckel dient, grenzt mit seinem freien Randabschnitt (8) an den äußeren Wandteil (9) der Seitenwand (5) an. Ferner bestehen der von dem Boden (4) gebildete Deckel als auch der äußere Wandteil (9) der Seitenwand (5) der becherförmigen Blende (2) aus demselben Blech. <IMAGE>
