Technical Field



[0001] The present invention relates to a cutting apparatus and a method for chamfering a film stack using the same, and particularly, relates to a cutting apparatus capable of curved surface processing of a film stack at the time of chamfering it, and a method for chamfering a film stack using the same.

[0002] This application claims the benefit of priority based on Korean Patent Application No. 10-2018-0026732 filed on March 7, 2018, the disclosure of which is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

Background Art

[0004] Figure 1 is a conceptual diagram for explaining a general chamfering process.

[0005] Referring to Figure 1, in the chamfering process of the film stack (F), a face-cut (F/C) type chamfering machine (10) shown in Figure 1(a) and an end mill (E/D) type chamfering machine (30) shown in Figure 1(b) have been used. At this time, in the case of the F/C type chamfering machine (10), cutting devices (20) are each provided on both sides of the film stack (F) in the transport direction, where the cutting device (20) includes a rotating wheel (21) and a plurality of cutting bites (22) mounted on the rotating wheel (21). Here, the chamfering method proceeds in such a manner that cuts the film stack (F) when the cutting bites rotate in accordance with rotation of the rotating wheel (12).

[0006] Figure 2 is schematic diagrams showing a general cutting product (Figure 2(a)) and a deformed cutting product (Figure 2(b)). Referring to Figure 2, in the case of the general cutting product (410), only linear processing is required on the inner circumference (41), but in the case of the deformed cutting product (50), curved surface processing (see Reference Numeral 52) is required on the inner circumference (51).

[0007] However, there is a problem that defects due to lifting during curved surface processing occur in the conventional chamfering machine as described in Figure 1.

Mode for Invention



[0014] Hereinafter, a cutting apparatus according to one example of the present invention and a method for chamfering a film stack using the same will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

[0015] In addition, the same or similar reference numerals are given to the same or corresponding components regardless of reference numerals, of which redundant explanations will be omitted, and for convenience of explanation, the size and shape of each constituent member as shown may be exaggerated or reduced.

[0016] Figure 3 is a schematic diagram showing a cutting apparatus (100) related to one example of the present invention; Figure 4 is side views showing various examples of a cutting bite (210, 310); and Figure 5 is a side view of the cutting bite (110) shown in Figure 3.

[0017] Figure 6 is side views showing various examples of a cutting bite; and Figure 7 is a graph showing analysis results of a cutting blade according to angles with respect to the central axis.

[0018] The present invention relates to a cutting apparatus (100) used in a chamfering process of a film stack (F). Particularly, the cutting apparatus (100) is capable of curved surface processing of a film stack (F) when chamfering.

[0019] The cutting apparatus (100) comprises a cutting bite (110), a first driving part (120), and a second driving part (130).

[0020] Specifically, the cutting bite (110) comprises a body (110) having a central axis (A) and a cutting blade (112) spirally provided on the outer circumferential surface of the body (110) along the central axis (A) so as to perform chamfering of the film stack (F) depending on rotation of the body (110).

[0021] The body (111) may have a cylindrical shape and may be formed of a metal material having rigidity, and for example, may be formed of a metal material such as a superhard material, or a ceramic material. The body (111) may have, for example, a diameter of approximately 2 to 8mm and a length of approximately 25mm (length in the central axis direction).

[0022] The body (110) is rotated based on the central axis (A) by the first driving part (130). In addition, the rotation speed of the body (100) is adjustable. On the other hand, the first driving part (130) may also rotate the body (110) at a fixed rotational speed when cutting, and alternatively, may also change the rotational speed of the body (110) at least in part when cutting.

[0023] Referring to Figure 4, the cutting blade may comprise a single or double blade (211, 312). Figure 4(a) shows the cutting bite (210) with the single blade (211). That is, the cutting bite (210) comprises a body (211) and a single cutting blade (212) spirally provided on the outer circumferential surface of the body along the central axis (A). Figure 5(b) shows the cutting bite (210) with the double blade (312). That is, the cutting bite (210) comprises a body (211) and a double cutting blade (312) each spirally provided on the outer circumferential surface of the body along the central axis (A).

[0024] Also, the first driving part (120) performs a function of rotating the body (110) based on the central axis (A). The first driving part (120) may be constituted by a known means such as a motor capable of rotating forward or backward.

[0025] In addition, the second driving part (130) performs a function of moving (transporting) the body (111).

[0026] Referring to Figure 5, the cutting blade (112) may be provided to incline at a predetermined angle (θ) within an angle range of 5° to 15° or 30° to 60° with respect to the central axis (A) of the body (111). Thus, the maximum stress applied to the film stack at the time of chamfering varies depending on the inclined angle (θ) of the cutting blade (112).

[0027] Preferably, the angle range may be set to be inclined at a predetermined angle (θ) within an angle range of 7° to 12° or 45° to 55°. More preferably, the cutting blade (112) may be provided to incline at an angle of 10° or 50° with respect to the central axis (A) of the body (111).

[0028] Referring to Figure 7, the maximum stress appears to be low at points B1 (about 10°) and B2 (about 50°), where it can be confirmed that these angles are optimal angles.

[0029] Furthermore, the second driving part (130) may be provided to move the body (111) along a direction (D) orthogonal to the central axis (A) of the body (111), and particularly, the second driving part (130) may be provided to move the cutting bite (100) along a curved path in at least some sections.

[0030] Hereinafter, a method for chamfering a film stack using the cutting apparatus having the above-described structure will be described.

[0031] The chamfering method of the film stack comprises a chamfering step of performing chamfering a film stack (F) using the cutting apparatus (100), wherein a chamfered area of the film stack in the chamfering step includes a curved area. That is, the curved surface processing area is included when chamfering.

[0032] In the chamfering step, the method comprises a step of rotating the cutting bite (110) and simultaneously moving it, by the first driving part and the second driving part, and comprises a step of moving the cutting bite along a curved path in at least some sections.

[0033] The preferred examples of the present invention as described above are disclosed for illustrative purposes, which can be modified, changed and added within thought and scope of the present invention by those skilled in the art and it will be considered that such modification, change and addition fall within the following claims.
