DETAILED DESCRIPTION



[0028] A clear and complete description of technical solutions in the embodiments of the present application will be given below, in combination with the accompanying drawings in the embodiments of the present application. Apparently, the embodiments described below are a part, but not all, of the embodiments of the present application. All other embodiments, obtained by those skilled in the art based on the embodiments of the present application without any creative efforts, shall fall within the protection scope of the present application.

[0029] FIG. 1 is a schematic structural diagram illustrating a device for automatically folding a flexible display screen according to an embodiment of the present application. FIG. 2 is a schematic structural diagram illustrating a device for automatically folding a flexible display screen according to an embodiment of the present application.

[0030] As shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, the device for automatically folding a flexible display screen includes a screen movable supporting component 1 and a bending driving device 2. The screen movable supporting component 1 is configured to support a portion of the flexible display screen 9, and the bending driving device 2 is configured to drive the screen movable supporting component 1 to perform a variable radius rotation around a fixed rotating shaft, thereby performing a bending action of the flexible display device. The fixed rotating shaft is disposed in a direction of a bending region of the flexible display screen 9. The fixed rotating shaft may be a solid rotating shaft, the solid rotating shaft is disposed in the direction of the bending region of the flexible display screen 9, and the bending driving device 2 drives the screen movable supporting component 1 to perform a variable radius motion around the solid rotating shaft. Alternatively, the fixed rotating shaft may also be a virtual rotating shaft, that is, there is no solid rotating shaft. For example, the bending driving device 2 drives the screen movable supporting component 1 to perform the variable radius motion only around the direction of the bending region of the flexible display screen 9. The fixed rotating shaft may be a virtual rotating shaft or a solid rotating shaft, which is not limited in the present application. The larger a bending angle of the flexible display screen 9 is, the smaller a rotation radius of the screen movable supporting component 1 is. For example, when the flexible display screen 9 is changed from a flattened state to a folded state, the rotation radius is decreased; and when the flexible display screen 9 is changed from the folded state to the flattened state, the rotation radius is increased. Thus the stress on the flexible display screen 9 during a stretching process is changed, and a problem that the flexible display screen 9 may not be displayed normally due to screen failure caused by stretching during a bending process is avoided.

[0031] It can be understood that the bending of the flexible display screen 9 may be a bending toward a side facing the display screen, or may be a bending toward a side away from the display screen, and the bending direction of the flexible display screen 9 is not limited by the present application.

[0032] FIG. 3 is a schematic structural diagram illustrating a bending driving device 2 according to an embodiment of the present application.

[0033] As shown in FIG. 3, the bending driving device 2 includes a cam 21 having an arcuate surface with a variable radius of curvature and a driving mechanism 22. The cam 21 is used to change a moving radius of the screen movable supporting component 1 so that the screen movable supporting component 1 rotates along the arcuate surface of the cam 21. The driving mechanism 22 is configured to drive the screen movable supporting component 1 to rotate along the arcuate surface of the cam 21. The driving mechanism 22 drives the screen movable supporting component 1 to perform a variable curvature radius rotation along the arcuate surface of the cam 21. When the flexible display screen 9 is changed from a flattened state to a folded state, the rotation radius is decreased, and when the flexible display screen 9 is changed from the folded state to the flattened state, the rotation radius is increased. Thus the stress on the flexible display screen 9 during a stretching process is changed, and a problem that the flexible display screen 9 may not be displayed normally due to screen failure caused by stretching during a bending process is avoided.

[0034] It can be understood that a curvature of the arcuate surface of the cam 21 with the variable curvature radius may be designed according to a specific folding manner of the flexible display screen 9, and the present application is not limited to a specific curvature of the variable curvature radius of the cam 21.

The driving component 222 is disposed between the motor 221 and the cam 21, and the motor 221 rotates to drive the driving component 222 to move. The driving component 222 drives the screen movable supporting component 1 to rotate along the arcuate surface of the cam 21 during moving, thereby realizing a change of the moving radius of the screen movable supporting component 1, thus the stress on the flexible display screen 9 during a folding process is reduced, and a problem that the flexible display screen 9 may not be displayed normally due to screen failure caused by stretching during a bending process is avoided.

[0037] It can be understood that the motor 221 may be a servo motor, a stepping motor, a common motor, or the like. The present application is not limited to a specific type of the motor 221 under the premise that the motor 221 may drive the screen supporting component to perform a variable radius rotation along the shape of the cam 21.

By fixing the screen movable supporting component 1 to the slider 2223 and assembling the slider 2223 on the rotating linkage 2222, when the motor 221 drives the rotating linkage 2222, the slider 2223 drives the screen movable supporting component 1 to perform a variable radius rotation along the shape of the cam 21 under the elastic force of the spring 2224, so that phenomena such as folding fatigue and folding failure caused by stretching may be avoided when the screen is bent.
