发明背景 Background of the Invention

1. 发明领域 1. Field of the Invention

本发明涉及一种用于脆性材料的锚,特别是用于安装于一部件的干墙的自钻锚。 The present invention relates to an anchor for a brittle material, in particular for mounting on a self-drilling anchor member drywall.

2. 相关技术的描述 2. Description of Related Art

因为干墙是脆性材料,在其上安装物件是困难的。 Because drywall is a brittle material, mounting articles thereto can be difficult. 过去,至少有3种方法被使用。 In the past, at least three kinds of methods are used. 对于重量轻的物件,小型塑料膨胀锚被使用。 For light-weight objects, small plastic expansion anchors are used. 这种膨胀锚通常通 This expansion anchors usually pass

过三个步骤来安装:首先,在干墙上钻一个孔;然后,锚被插入钻孔;最后, Over the three steps to install: First, drill a hole in the drywall; then, the anchor is inserted into the borehole; and finally,

一个螺纹紧固件被插入钻孔,扩张此锚以和干墙接合。 A threaded fastener is inserted into the borehole, the expansion of this and drywall anchors to engage. 然而,膨胀锚通常只能承受轻的载重。 However, expansion anchors typically can only withstand a light load.

对于重负载的应用场合,系墙螺栓被使用。 For heavy duty applications, toggle bolts are used. 尽管系墙螺栓是有效的,但它们一般也是膨胀的,因为它们包含必须相对于另一部分移动的部分。 While toggle bolts are effective, but they are generally swellable, because they contain must be relative to the other portion of the mobile portion. 系墙螺栓也被认为难以安装。 Toggle bolts are considered difficult to install.

用于承受重负载的自钻锚也已经被使用。 To withstand heavy loads of self-drilling anchors have already been used. 这些自钻锚通常通过锚自己钻入干墙。 These self-drilling anchors typically drilled through the drywall anchor themselves. 这样的锚还具有高的螺纹深度,以提供从干墙拔出的高阻力。 Such anchor also has a high thread depth, in order to provide high pull from drywall resistance. 自钻 Self-drilling

锚的例子包括ITWBuildex制造的、商标为E-ZANCOR的锚,以及美国专利4,601,625、 5,190,425和5,558,479公开的锚,这些专利均已转让给本申请的受让人。 Examples include ITWBuildex anchor manufactured, under the trademark E-ZANCOR anchor, and U.S. Patent No. 4,601,625, 5,190,425 and 5,558,479 disclose the anchor, these patents have been assigned to the assignee of this application.

自钻锚被证实可以在安装到千墙时有效承载较重负载。 Self drilling anchor proven effective carrying heavier loads can be installed into the wall when thousands. 然而,在决大多数情况下,干墙被固定在用户看不到的木头支撑部件或栓上,通常用户不知道也没有检查支撑部件的位置。 However, in the overwhelming majority of cases, the drywall is fixed on the user can not see the wood supporting member or bolt, usually you do not know and did not check the position of the support member. 当典型自钻紧固件的用户试图在支撑部件处安装锚到干墙时,锚无法钻入支撑部件,导致锚在原地旋转,锚的深螺纹剥 When the typical self-drilling fasteners user tries to install drywall anchors to support member at anchor can not drill into the support member, lead anchor the rotation in place, screw anchors deep peel

4落干墙,导致锚安装失败和墙上不好看的缺痕。 4 off the drywall, lead anchor installation failures and lack of unsightly marks on the wall. 即使锚可以轻微地钻入支撑部件,锚会绷紧接合支撑部件并由于锚受的扭矩而断裂。 Even so slightly drill anchor supporting member, taut anchor will engage the support member and the anchor by a torque due to fracture.

干墙锚通常具有一个头或凸缘,所述头或凸缘大于干墙螺纹的外部直径以防止安装锚时锚钻过干墙。 Drywall anchors typically have a head or flange or flange is greater than the head drywall screw outer diameter to prevent the installation of drywall anchors drilled anchors. 然而,大的锚头会在推动锚时使干墙移位,导致此部分干墙环绕锚凸出,通常被称为干墙鼓包。 However, the large anchor head will make drywall anchor in promoting the shift, resulting in dry wall surround this section protruding anchor, commonly referred to as drywall bulge. 干墙螺纹大的外部直径也会导致干墙移位和干墙鼓包。 Drywall screw large external diameter will lead to a shift drywall and drywall bulge. 干墙鼓包导致干墙表面的不美观的蓬松部分, 并难以使一些物件平齐于干墙表面地安装到干墙上。 Drywall cause unsightly bulge fluffy part drywall surface, and it is difficult to make some of the items on drywall surface is flush mounted to the dry wall.

从而需要一种可以减少干墙鼓包而不减少承载力的自钻锚。 Thus the need for a drum kit can be reduced without reducing drywall self drilling anchor bearing capacity. 发明内容 SUMMARY

锚10用于脆性材料例如干墙1,所述干墙1安装在部件例如支撑部件2 上,此新的锚10具有: 一个伸长的具有轴6的本体12; —个用于接收紧固 Anchor 10 for a brittle material such as drywall, the drywall 1 mounted on a member such as the support member 2, this new anchor 10 has: an elongated body 12 having a shaft 6; - a means for receiving the fastening

件4(见图7)的轴向腔8; —个在其中具有转矩传送面的张开端14; 一个最接近张开端14的近端部分18; —个中间部分20; —个远端部分22; —个一 Member 4 (see FIG. 7) of the axial bore 8; - in which a torque transmitting surface having a flared end 14; the one closest to the proximal end 14 of the flared portion 18; - an intermediate portion 20; - a distal end portion 22; - a one

般和张开端14相对的钻头16;其中近端部分18具有带螺纹的表面,例如接合干墙的螺纹19,所述螺纹19具有根部26和脊27,脊径为DC,螺纹深度为DH;中间部分20具有带螺纹的表面,例如接合部件的螺纹21,所述螺纹21具有根部28和脊29,脊径为MC, MC基本小于DC,螺纹深度为MH, MH基本小于DH;远端部分22具有带螺纹的表面,例如钻螺纹23,所述钻螺纹23具有根部30、脊31和螺纹深度TH,所述根部30呈锥形向钻头16 逐渐变细,所述脊31具有直径TC, TC基本小于DC, TH基本小于DH。 And like flared end 14 opposite the drill bit 16; wherein the proximal portion 18 having a threaded surface, such as drywall engaging thread 19, the thread 19 has a root portion 26 and ridges 27, ridges diameter DC, thread depth DH; intermediate portion 20 having a threaded surface, such as a threaded engagement member 21, the screw 21 having a root 28 and ridges 29, ridges diameter MC, MC substantially smaller than DC, thread depth for MH, MH substantially smaller than DH; distal end portion 22 having a threaded surface, such as a threaded drilling 23, the drill screw 23 having a root 30, the ridge 31 and the thread depth TH, the tapered root portion 30 tapers toward the drill bit 16, the ridge 31 has a diameter TC, TC substantially less than the DC, TH substantially smaller than DH.

如图7所示,锚10用于推入干墙1以安装一个物件3到干墙1。 As shown in Figure 7, the anchor 10 is pushed into drywall 1 for mounting an article 3 to drywall 1 to. 在锚10 被安装后, 一个装配紧固件4插透物件3进入锚10的腔8。 After the anchor 10 is installed, a fastener assembly is inserted through the object 4 3 10 8 into the anchor cavity. 锚10提供比单独的装配紧固件4更强的结合力和更大的拔出阻力。 Anchor assembly 10 provide more than a single fastener 4 stronger binding force and greater pull-out resistance. 当仅仅锚IO被安装到干墙上时,锚10可以以类似传统的自钻锚方式被使用。 When only the anchor is attached to the stem wall IO, anchor 10 can self-drilling anchors similar to the traditional way of being used. 然而,锚IO允许锚IO 穿入并和支撑部件2例如木质支撑栓结合,而增加承受将锚10推入干墙1和支撑部件2的巨大力量的强度。 However, the anchor anchor IO IO allow penetration and support and support two bolt fastening member such as wood, bear the increased strength of the anchor 10 is pushed into drywall 1 and support members of the tremendous power of two.

脆性材料可以是用于建筑的几种脆性材料中的一种,其中希望安装物件3到此脆性材料以增加此脆性材料可以承受的负载量。 Brittle brittle material may be a material for the construction of several one, where it is desirable to install this article 3 in order to increase the amount of brittle material brittle material can withstand a load of this. 脆性材料的一个例子是基于石膏的干墙1,例如United States Gypsum销售的、商品名为SHEETROCK的石膏干墙.。 An example of the brittle material is gypsum based drywall 1, e.g., United States Gypsum sold under the trade name SHEETROCK gypsum drywall .. 干墙的厚度T通常为1/2或5/8英寸,但也可以是其他厚度,例如3/8英寸。 Drywall thickness T is typically 1/2 or 5/8 inch, but may be other thicknesses, such as 3/8 inch.

脆性材料例如干墙1通常被安装到一个部件上,例如木结构的支撑部件、 夹板、或另一个脆性材料例如另一层干墙。 Brittle materials such as drywall 1 is typically mounted to a member, such as wood structural support member, plywood, or another brittle material such as another layer of drywall. 此部件可以是一个支撑部件2, 例如一个木质支撑部件,例如一个2X4的栓或类似物,他们彼此按均匀间距例如16英寸被放置,此部件或者可以是金属支撑部件,例如金属支撑栓。 This member can be a support member 2, such as a wood support member, for example a 2X4 pin or the like, for example, they are evenly spaced from each other by 16 inches is placed, the member or may be a metal support member, such as a metal support bolt. 支撑部件相对于干墙1基本能抵抗拔出,因为支撑部件相对来讲很不容易裂开。 Support member relative to the drywall can resist pull out a basic, relatively speaking, because the support member is not easy to crack. 尽管锚10可以用于安装在另一层干墙上的干墙1、或其他脆性材料,本发明 1, or other brittle material may be used although the anchor 10 mounted on another layer of drywall drywall, the present invention

将描述用于例如木质支撑栓的支撑部件的锚。 Will be described, for example, wooden support bolt anchoring support member.

参看图7,安装紧固件4优选是一个螺纹紧固件,例如一个安装螺丝, 具有细长的杆34、位于一端的一个顶部35、位于另一端的一个钻头36。 Referring to Figure 7, mounting fastener 4 is preferably a threaded fastener, such as a mounting screw, having an elongate lever 34, one top 35 at one end, a drill bit 36 at the other end. 安装紧固件4的杆34包括螺纹5,所述螺纹5和锚10的腔8接合。 Mounting fastener 4 includes a threaded rod 34 5, 5 and the threaded cavity 10 of the anchor 8 engages. 安装紧固件4的螺纹5可以是标准的螺纹,例如Unified Coarse (UNC)或者Unified Fine (UNF)螺纹,或者螺纹5可以是特殊的螺纹。 5 threaded mounting fastener 4 can be a standard screw, e.g. Unified Coarse (UNC) or Unified Fine (UNF) threads, or threads 5 may be a special thread. 安装紧固件4可以是UNC 标准的#6、 #7或#8螺丝,其中顶部35具有菲利普斯式螺钉凹槽,总长度FL介于约1/2英寸一约2英寸或更多,优选约1.25英寸。 UNC mounting fastener 4 can be a standard # 6, # 7 or # 8 screws, wherein the top of the screw 35 has a Phillips recess, a total length FL of between about 1/2 inch to about 2 inches one or more, preferably approximately 1.25 inches. 安装紧固件7的螺纹密度介于约8螺纹每英寸到约18螺纹每英寸,优选15螺纹每英寸。 7, mounting fastener thread density of between about 8 threads per inch to about 18 threads per inch, preferably 15 threads per inch.

安装紧固件4可以具有不同的长度以适合物件3的不同厚度AT。 Mounting fastener 4 can have different lengths to accommodate different thicknesses AT 3 of the object. 优选地, 锚10被设计得如果物件3如图7所示相对较薄, 一个长的安装紧固件4可以和锚10—起使用,或者相对较厚,这时需要更长的长度以和锚IO接合。 Preferably, the anchor 10 if article 3 is designed to be relatively thin as shown in Figure 7, a long mounting fastener 4 can be used together and anchor 10-, or relatively thick, then need a longer length and IO anchor engagement. 如同下面将描述的一样,锚10允许使用长于锚10的安装紧固件4,因为锚10 具有这样的形状:允许安装紧固头36穿过钻头16的原始位置。 As will be described below, like the anchor 10 allows the use of longer than anchor 10 of mounting fastener 4, since the anchor 10 has a shape: allows the installation position of the fastening head 36 through the drill bit 16 of the original. 因为锚10允许安装紧固件4的安装紧固头36穿过钻头16的原始位置,锚10可以比安装紧固件4短。 Because the anchor 10 allows installation fasteners securing the first four of 36 passes through the original location of the drill bit 16, the anchor 10 can be shorter than 4 mounting fasteners. 一个较短的锚10是所期望的,因为它限制支撑部件2的嵌入深度,因此减少相应的安装扭矩,也因为这样使得制造不那么昂贵、易于操作和在安装过程中保持稳定,也因为这样使得安装推入时间较短,因而用户可以在相对较短的时间内较容易得安装多个锚10。 A shorter anchor 10 is desirable because it limits the depth of the support member 2 is embedded, thus reducing the corresponding installation torque, but also because it makes manufacture less expensive, easy to operate and remain stable during the installation process, but also because it so that the mounting push short time, so that the user can more easily obtain a plurality of anchor 10 installed in a relatively short period of time.

The second external thread 23 "has a diameter substantially less than the ridge ridge trails DC TC and substantially less than the height of the high helix spiral DH height TH.

继续参考图7,当锚10被安装时,优选地锚10具有一个装置来允许紧固头36延伸超过锚10的钻头16的原始位置。 With continued reference to FIG. 7, when the anchor 10 is installed, preferably anchor 10 has a means to allow the fastening head 36 extends beyond the anchor 10 of the drill bit 16 of the original position. 锚10可以有一个允许安装紧固件4穿过锚10的薄壁38这样紧固头就能够延伸通过锚10的钻头16。 Anchor 10 may be allowed to have a thin wall mounting fastener 4 through the anchor 38 so that the fastening head 10 will be able to extend through the anchor 10 of the drill bit 16. 薄壁38允许锚10的根径更小,从而导致被要求的安装扭矩更低。 Thin wall 38 allows the root diameter of the anchor 10 is smaller, resulting in lower torque being required to install. 另外,薄壁38允许锚10接受具有相对较大外直径的安装紧固件4,而锚10仍有相对较小的根部。 In addition, thin wall 38 allows anchor 10 to accept a relatively large outer diameter of mounting fastener 4, and the anchor 10 is still relatively small root. 例如,如果壁的厚度为约0.02英寸,并有一套足够大的键槽44, 如下所述,锚10能够接受一个外直径为约0.14英寸的# 6的带螺纹的安装紧固件,或者一个外直径为约0.16英寸的將的带螺纹的安装紧固件,而安装紧固件螺纹5不会攻入壁38。 For example, if the wall thickness is about 0.02 inches, and have a large enough key groove 44, as described below, anchor 10 can receive a mounting fastener outer diameter of about 0.14 inches is threaded # 6, or an outer having a diameter of about 0.16 inches mounting fastener would threaded, threaded fastener 5 is not mounted scored wall 38. 同样的,薄壁38允许锚10由较少的材料制成, 这样生产锚10就比较便宜。 Similarly, the thin wall 38 allows anchor 10 is made from less material so that anchor 10 is less expensive production. 在一个实施例中,锚壁38的厚度在约O.Ol英寸,和约0.05英寸之间,优选地在约0.015英寸和约0.03英寸之间,进一步优选地为约0.025英寸。 In one embodiment, the thickness of anchor wall 38 is between about O.Ol inches, between about 0.05 inches, preferably between about 0.015 inches and about 0.03 inches, more preferably about 0.025 inches.

在图3所示实施例中,键槽44被包括在用于接收安装紧固件4的锚10 的腔8之中。 In the embodiment shown in Figure 3, the keyway 44 is included in an anchor for receiving a mounting fastener 4 of 8 into the chamber 10. 安装紧固件螺纹5啮合匹配的螺纹45进入键槽44中,这样安装紧固件4就与键槽44相接合,并由此与锚10相接合。 Mounting fastener threads 5 engaging mating threads 45 into the keyway 44, so that mounting fastener 4 is engaged with the groove 44, 10 and thereby engage and anchor. 键槽44也给锚10 增加结构上的支撑,这样当其钻过干墙1和支撑部件2时锚10的本体12就能够承受较高的扭力。 Keyway 44 is also anchored to the support structure 10 increases, so that when it is drilled drywall body 1 and the support member 10 of the anchor 12 2 can withstand higher torque.

带有键槽44的腔8的有效内直径应当小于外直径、或者安装紧固件4的脊径,但不能与安装紧固件4的根径一样小,这样键槽44被安装紧固件4攻螺纹以形成匹配的螺纹45。 With the effective inner diameter of the keyway 44 of the chamber 8 should be smaller than the outer diameter, or diameter of mounting fastener 4 of the ridges, but not with the root diameter of mounting fastener 4 as small, so that the keyway 44 is mounting fastener 4 attack thread 45 to form mating threads. 键槽44距壁38内部的高度优选地被选择得使腔8的内直径足够小以至于一个外直径为约0.136英寸的#6的有螺纹的安装紧固件4的螺纹能够攻螺纹于键槽44中;并且,使得壁38的内直径足够大以至于一个外直径为约0.164英寸的# 8的有螺纹的安装紧固件4的螺纹能够只攻螺纹于键槽44中而不攻螺纹于壁38中。 Keyway 44 from the interior wall 38 of the height is preferably chosen so that the inner diameter of the chamber 8 is small enough so that an outer diameter of about 0.136 inches of # 6 threaded mounting fastener 4 can tapping threads in the keyway 44 in; and, so that the inner diameter of the wall 38 is large enough so that an outer diameter of about 0.164 inches of # 8 threaded mounting fastener 4 can only thread tapping in the keyway 44 in wall 38 without tapping in. 在一个优选实施例中,腔8在壁38处的内直径在约0.17英寸和约0.21英寸之间,优选地在约0.18英寸和约0.2英寸之间,进一步更优选地为约0.19英寸,而且键槽44的高度在约0.015 英寸和约0.045英寸之间,优选地在约0.025英寸和约0.035英寸之间,进一步优选地为约0.03英寸,这样腔8在键槽44处的有效内直径在约0.11英寸和约0.16英寸之间,优选地在约0.12英寸到约0.145英寸之间,进一步优选地为约0.13英寸。 In one preferred embodiment, the inner diameter of the chamber 8 in the wall 38 is between about 0.17 inches and about 0.21 inches, preferably between about 0.18 inches and about 0.2 inches, still more preferably about 0.19 inches, and the keyway 44 The height between about 0.015 inches and about 0.045 inches, preferably between about 0.025 inches and about 0.035 inches, more preferably about 0.03 inches, so that the effective inner diameter of the chamber 8 in keyway 44 of between about 0.11 inches and about 0.16 inches between, preferably between about 0.12 inches to about 0.145 inches, more preferably about 0.13 inches.

制造锚10的材料要足够坚固,能够承受通常条件下锚IO钻进干墙1和支撑部件2的扭力;还要有足够的延展性,能够被有螺纹的安装紧固件4攻螺纹。 Manufacturing anchor material 10 to be sturdy enough to withstand normal conditions IO drilling drywall anchors and a torque support member 2; also have sufficient ductility can be threaded mounting fastener 4 tapping. 锚10的材料优选地为通过安装紧固件4可穿透的或者易破的以便安装紧固件4的钻头36能够延伸通过锚10的钻头16。 Anchor material 10 is preferably for a penetrable by mounting fastener 4 or breakable mounting fastener 4 so that the drill bit 36 can extend through the anchor 10 of the drill bit 16. 此外,制造锚10的材料要能够即简单又便宜地形成锚IO特定的几何结构。 Further, to manufacture the anchor material 10 can be simply and inexpensively formed anchor IO specific geometry. 锚IO可以由能够模铸造成锚10的形状的金属或者金属合金制成,例如锡合金、铝合金、镁合金、铜、 青铜或者黄铜合金、以及锌合金。 IO can be molded by the anchor can cause the shape of the anchor 10 is made of a metal or metal alloy, for example, tin alloys, aluminum alloys, magnesium alloys, copper, bronze or brass alloys, and zinc alloy. 在一个实施例中,锚10由一种锌合金制成, 例如Zamac 1 ,辛合金。 In one embodiment, the anchor 10 is made from a zinc alloy, such as Zamac 1, oct-alloy.

锚10也可以由塑料或者其他聚合材料制成,例如一种工程塑料如Delron、 尼龙、填充尼龙,如玻璃纤维尼龙。 Anchor 10 may be made of plastic or other polymeric material, e.g., a plastic such as Delron, nylon, filled nylon, such as glass filled nylon. 但是,锚10应该被制成足够坚固能够承受锚10钻进干墙1和支撑部件2的扭力。 However, the anchor 10 should be made strong enough to withstand 10 drilling drywall anchors and a supporting part 2 of torque.

远端部分 Distal portion

回到图1到图4,远端部分22允许锚10在被使用者手工操作时钻过干墙1和支撑部件2,这样就不需要一个单独的先钻孔步骤。 Returning to Figure 1 to Figure 4, the distal portion 22 allows anchor 10, when a user manually drilled drywall 1 and support member 2, eliminating the need to drill a separate step. 远端部分包括一个钻头16,而且在一个如图2所示的优选实施例中,钻头16通常为圆锥形并与本体12同轴,这样钻头16在本体轴6上达到点46。 The distal end portion includes a drill bit 16, and in one preferred embodiment shown in Figure 2, the drill bit 16 is generally conical and coaxial with the body 12, so that the drill bit 16 reaches the point 46 on the body shaft 6. 优选地,钻头16 包括一个其引导作用并迅速与干墙1的表面48和支撑部件2的前表面相接合的尖端46。 Preferably, the tip of the drill bit 16 includes a guiding role and quickly with their front surfaces 48 of drywall 1 and support member 2 engages 46. 如图6所示,钻头16还可以包括一个位于钻头16较低部分的平坦部分52,其作用在于帮助锚10与干墙1和锚10与支撑部件2的最初的接合。 As shown in Figure 6, the drill bit 16 may also include a flat portion of the drill bit 16 is located in the lower portion 52, whose role is to assist the initial engagement with the anchor 10 and drywall 1 and the anchor 10 of the support member 2.

远端部分22包括一个具有钻孔螺纹23的有螺纹的外部,其被设置于远端部分22上用于接合干墙1和支撑部件2。 Having a distal end portion 22 includes a threaded exterior threaded borehole 23, which is provided on the distal end portion 22 for engaging drywall 1 and support member 2. 钻孔螺纹23包括一个根部30和一个具有脊径TC的脊31,所述脊径TC基本小于干墙接合螺纹脊径DC,并且螺纹深度TH基本小于干墙接合螺纹深度DH。 Drilling thread root 30 and 23 includes a ridge 31 having a diameter TC ridge, said ridge is substantially smaller than the diameter TC drywall screw engagement ridge trails DC, and the thread depth TH substantially smaller than drywall engaging thread depth DH. 钻孔螺纹深度TH也足够小以便钻入支撑部件的安装扭矩能够典型地由使用者手工完成,这样锚10就能够钻入支撑部件2。 TH drilling thread depth is also small enough to penetrate into the supporting member installation torque can typically be completed manually by the user, so that the anchor 10 will be able to drill into the support member 2. 螺纹23还可以包括在图3中可见的一个在螺纹23的基底部和根部30之间的曲率半径,以防止在螺纹23的基底部形成应力的集中。 Thread 23 may also include a radius of curvature is visible in FIG. 3 between the base portion 23 and the thread root 30 to prevent the stress concentration formed in the base portion 23 of the thread.

继续参考图2、 3,钻孔螺纹根部30从中间部分20向钻头16逐渐变细, 这样靠近钻头16的钻孔螺纹的横截面积相对于其在中间部分20上的横截面积是减小的。 With continued reference to Figure 2 cross-sectional area, 3, drilling thread root 30 from the intermediate portion 20 tapers toward the drill bit 16, so that the thread near the drill bit 16 of the drill relative to its cross-sectional area in the intermediate portion 20 is to reduce a. 钻孔螺纹23的螺纹深度TH实质上沿远端部分的长度保持不变。 Drilling thread 23 thread depth TH substantially along the length of the distal portion remains constant. 但是,由于根部30相对较小,特别是在钻头16处,螺纹深度可能较大,例如大于部件接合螺纹21的螺纹深度MH,因为较小的根部30在脊径TC不太大时允许较大的螺纹深度。 However, since the root portion 30 is relatively small, particularly in the drill bit 16, the thread depth may be larger, for example greater than the thread depth MH member engaging thread 21, and because the smaller the root 30 allows a larger diameter of the ridge is not too large TC thread depth.

远端部分螺纹23和中间部分螺纹21接合干墙1并驱动锚IO通过干墙1。 Distal portion of the screw thread 23 and an intermediate portion 21 engages and drives a drywall anchor IO 1 through drywall. 如果锚10被驱进到一个位置,其中一个支撑部件2位于干墙1后面,钻头16碰到支撑部件2,而且如果支撑部件2比干墙1相对要硬,例如一个木质的支撑栓,那么锚10典型地旋入干墙1而没有轴向地进入支撑部件10,在这里称为停顿。 If anchor 10 is driven into a position in which a support member 2 is located behind drywall 1, the drill bit 16 hits support member 2, and if support member 2 is relatively harder than the dry wall 1, for example a wooden support bolt, then anchor 10 is typically screwed into drywall 1 without axially into the supporting member 10, referred to herein as a pause. 当锚10停顿,远端部分螺纹23和中间部分螺纹21在干墙1 上钻出一个预设尺寸的洞而钻头16钻进支撑部件2。 When the anchor 10 pause, the distal portion of the middle part of the screw threads 23 and 21 in the drywall drill a hole on a preset size and drill 16 drilling support member 2. 最终钻头16钻入支撑部件2—定的深度,通常在约1/8英寸和约1/4英寸之间,使远端部件能够与支撑部件2相接合并开始驱动锚10通过支撑部件2和干墙1 ,这样千墙接合螺纹19能够与干墙1相接合。 Final drill bit to drill into the support member 16 2- predetermined depth, usually between about 1/8 inch and about 1/4 inch, so that the distal member and the support member 2 can engage and starts driving the anchor member 10 by the support 2 and dried Wall 1, so one thousand thread engagement wall 19 can engage with a dry wall.

由中间部分螺纹21钻入干墙1的洞的尺寸被发现对于干墙和干墙接合螺纹W之间产生的接合很重要,特别是当锚10仅被驱进干墙的时候。 Intermediate portion 21 by a threaded hole drilled into drywall 1 dimensions is found for drywall and drywall engaging thread W is generated between the engagement is very important, particularly when 10 to be driven only when the anchor into the drywall. 我们发 Us

ii现,干墙螺纹具有一个约1/2英寸的脊径,这对于在干墙上钻出一个直径为约1/4英寸的洞是很理想的。 ii now, drywall screw has a diameter of about 1/2 inch ridge, which in the dry wall drilled with a diameter of about 1/4 inch hole is ideal. 因此,远端部分22被设计为在干墙1上钻出一个洞,所述洞通常最大化锚10的拔出阻力到实际能达到的最大程度。 Thus, the distal end portion 22 is designed to drill a hole in drywall 1, the pull-out resistance hole anchored to generally maximize the actual maximum achievable degree 10.

继续图2,远端部分22可以包括至少一个翼54,所述翼54从远端部分22放射状地向外突出,用于在干墙l中刮出一个具有预定尺寸的洞,以最大化干墙的拔出阻力,特别是当仅锚10被驱入干墙、而在安装位置后没有支撑部件2时。 Continuing with Figure 2, distal portion 22 may include at least one wing 54, the wings 54 projecting outwardly from the distal end portion 22 radially, for drywall l in a scraped-hole having a predetermined size, to maximize the dry pull-out resistance of the wall, especially when the anchor 10 is only driven into drywall, but after the installation position is not the support member 2. 优选地,翼54从轴6延伸到约等于邻接凸缘40的近端部分18的根部半径处,其中所述根部半径是根径DR的一半。 Preferably, wing 54 extends from the shaft 6 adjacent to the flange 40 is approximately equal to the root radius of the proximal end portion 18, wherein the root radius is half of the root diameter DR. 翼54被设计得当碰到支撑部件2时脱离,这样翼54不刮支撑部件2,而只刮干墙l。 Wing 54 is designed properly met from 2:00 supporting member, so do not scratch wing support member 54 2, but only scraping drywall l.

在图2所示实施例中,远端22具有一对从远端部分22放射状地向外突出的翼54。 In the embodiment shown in Figure 2, the distal end 22 having a distal end portion 22 from the radially outwardly projecting wing 54. 翼54沿远端22周缘均匀设置,因此这对翼54相隔180 。 Wing 54 along the distal edge 22 weeks uniform set, so this pair of wings 54 separated by 180 . 翼54放射状地向外突出,这一对翼54之间的宽度WW约等于邻接凸缘40的近端部分18的根径DR。 Wing 54 radially outwardly projecting, WW width between the pair of wings 54 is approximately equal to the proximal flange 40 adjacent root diameter portion 18 DR. 优选地,翼54刮出的洞约等于根径DR,这样翼54 仅刮出刚好必要多的干墙1,留下最大量的干墙1以和干墙接合螺纹19接合。 Preferably, the wing scraped the hole 54 is approximately equal to the root diameter DR, so only 54 wing scraped just need one more drywall, leaving a maximum amount of drywall and drywall to engage the threaded engagement 19.

如前所述,如果钻头16碰到支撑部件2,钻头16钻入支撑部件2,将有一个瞬间的停顿,这样锚10上的螺纹开始刮掉部分干墙1。 As described above, if the drill bit 16 hits support member 2, the drill bit 16 drill into support member 2, there will be a momentary pause, so that the anchor 10 on the threaded portion of drywall 1 starts scraped off. 由于这个原因, 重要的是:钻螺纹23接合支撑部件2,远端22快速钻入支撑部件2使得锚10在被驱向前之前不会过多刮掉干墙1,避免在干墙1表面产生疤痕。 For this reason, it is important that: the drill screw 23 engages the support member 2, the distal end 22 drill into support member 2 quickly so that anchor 10 is driven forwardly in too much not scraped off before the drywall 1, to avoid surface in drywall 1 scarring. 钻螺纹23延伸到尽量接近钻头16的轴位置,这样钻螺纹23可以更快地和支撑部件2接合。 Drill threads 23 extend as close as possible to the axis position of the drill bit 16, drill threads 23 so that the support member 2 can engage and faster. 在一个优选实施例中,钻螺纹23充分延伸到钻头16,这样,如图1、 2、 5所示,钻螺纹23的头和钻头点46的轴向距离介于约0英寸到约0.06英寸之间,当此距离为O英寸时,钻螺纹23实质上一路延伸到钻头16。 In one preferred embodiment, drill threads 23 fully extended to the drill bit 16, so that, as shown in Figure 1, 2, 5, the drill head and the drill point 23 of the threaded axial distance 46 is between about 0 inches to about 0.06 inches between, when the distance is O inches, drilling screw 23 extends substantially all the way to the drill bit 16. 理想地,钻螺纹23优选一路延伸到钻头16, g卩,在钻头点46和钻螺纹23 的头之间没有距离,然而,已经发现对于一个成为一个点的钻头,其中根径实质上为O英寸,钻螺纹实际上变成轴,这使得钻螺纹难以和支撑部件2接合。 Ideally, drilling screw 23 is preferably extend all the way to the drill bit 16, g Jie, head of 46 points between the drill and the drill screw 23 is not the distance, however, it has been found that for a bit to become a point where the root diameter is substantially O inch, actually becomes the drill screw shaft, which makes it difficult to drill threaded engagement and the support member 2. 因为这个原因,钻螺纹23的头56可以和钻头16稍微分开例如约0.02 英寸的距离。 For this reason, the thread 23 of the drill head 56 and the drill bit 16 can be slightly separated e.g., about 0.02 inches apart.

锚10需要具有足够的结构强度以承受大的扭力而不会崩溃,特别是在钻头16处。 Anchor 10 is required to have sufficient structural strength to withstand large torque will not collapse, especially in the drill bit 16. 如上所述,薄的壁38会导致锚10崩溃的潜在趋势,当驱动锚10 As mentioned above, the thin wall 38 will result in the collapse of a potential trend anchor 10, when the driver anchor 10

现,干墙螺纹具有一个约1/2英寸的脊径,这对于在干墙上钻出一个直径为约1/4英寸的洞是很理想的。 Now, drywall screw has a diameter of about 1/2 inch ridge, which in the dry wall drilled with a diameter of about 1/4 inch hole is ideal. 因此,远端部分22被设计为在干墙1上钻出一个洞,所述洞通常最大化锚10的拔出阻力到实际能达到的最大程度。 Thus, the distal end portion 22 is designed to drill a hole in drywall 1, the pull-out resistance hole anchored to generally maximize the actual maximum achievable degree 10.

继续图2,远端部分22可以包括至少一个翼54,所述翼54从远端部分22放射状地向外突出,用于在干墙l中刮出一个具有预定尺寸的洞,以最大化干墙的拔出阻力,特别是当仅锚10被驱入干墙、而在安装位置后没有支撑部件2时。 Continuing with Figure 2, distal portion 22 may include at least one wing 54, the wings 54 projecting outwardly from the distal end portion 22 radially, for drywall l in a scraped-hole having a predetermined size, to maximize the dry pull-out resistance of the wall, especially when the anchor 10 is only driven into drywall, but after the installation position is not the support member 2. 优选地,翼54从轴6延伸到约等于邻接凸缘40的近端部分18的根部半径处,其中所述根部半径是根径DR的一半。 Preferably, wing 54 extends from the shaft 6 adjacent to the flange 40 is approximately equal to the root radius of the proximal end portion 18, wherein the root radius is half of the root diameter DR. 翼54被设计得当碰到支撑部件2时脱离,这样翼54不刮支撑部件2,而只刮干墙l。 Wing 54 is designed properly met from 2:00 supporting member, so do not scratch wing support member 54 2, but only scraping drywall l.

在图2所示实施例中,远端22具有一对从远端部分22放射状地向外突出的翼54。 In the embodiment shown in Figure 2, the distal end 22 having a distal end portion 22 from the radially outwardly projecting wing 54. 翼54沿远端22周缘均匀设置,因此这对翼54相隔180 。 Wing 54 along the distal edge 22 weeks uniform set, so this pair of wings 54 separated by 180 . 翼54放射状地向外突出,这一对翼54之间的宽度WW约等于邻接凸缘40的近端部分18的根径DR。 Wing 54 radially outwardly projecting, WW width between the pair of wings 54 is approximately equal to the proximal flange 40 adjacent root diameter portion 18 DR. 优选地,翼54刮出的洞约等于根径DR,这样翼54 仅刮出刚好必要多的干墙1,留下最大量的干墙1以和干墙接合螺纹19接合。 Preferably, the wing scraped the hole 54 is approximately equal to the root diameter DR, so only 54 wing scraped just need one more drywall, leaving a maximum amount of drywall and drywall to engage the threaded engagement 19.

如前所述,如果钻头16碰到支撑部件2,钻头16钻入支撑部件2,将有一个瞬间的停顿,这样锚10上的螺纹开始刮掉部分干墙1。 As described above, if the drill bit 16 hits support member 2, the drill bit 16 drill into support member 2, there will be a momentary pause, so that the anchor 10 on the threaded portion of drywall 1 starts scraped off. 由于这个原因, 重要的是:钻螺纹23接合支撑部件2,远端22快速钻入支撑部件2使得锚10在被驱向前之前不会过多刮掉干墙1,避免在干墙1表面产生疤痕。 For this reason, it is important that: the drill screw 23 engages the support member 2, the distal end 22 drill into support member 2 quickly so that anchor 10 is driven forwardly in too much not scraped off before the drywall 1, to avoid surface in drywall 1 scarring. 钻螺纹23延伸到尽量接近钻头16的轴位置,这样钻螺纹23可以更快地和支撑部件2接合。 Drill threads 23 extend as close as possible to the axis position of the drill bit 16, drill threads 23 so that the support member 2 can engage and faster. 在一个优选实施例中,钻螺纹23充分延伸到钻头16,这样,如图1、 2、 5所示,钻螺纹23的头和钻头点46的轴向距离介于约0英寸到约0.06英寸之间,当此距离为O英寸时,钻螺纹23实质上一路延伸到钻头16。 In one preferred embodiment, drill threads 23 fully extended to the drill bit 16, so that, as shown in Figure 1, 2, 5, the drill head and the drill point 23 of the threaded axial distance 46 is between about 0 inches to about 0.06 inches between, when the distance is O inches, drilling screw 23 extends substantially all the way to the drill bit 16. 理想地,钻螺纹23优选一路延伸到钻头16, g卩,在钻头点46和钻螺纹23 的头之间没有距离,然而,已经发现对于一个成为一个点的钻头,其中根径实质上为O英寸,钻螺纹实际上变成轴,这使得钻螺纹难以和支撑部件2接合。 Ideally, drilling screw 23 is preferably extend all the way to the drill bit 16, g Jie, head of 46 points between the drill and the drill screw 23 is not the distance, however, it has been found that for a bit to become a point where the root diameter is substantially O inch, actually becomes the drill screw shaft, which makes it difficult to drill threaded engagement and the support member 2. 因为这个原因,钻螺纹23的头56可以和钻头16稍微分开例如约0.02 英寸的距离。 For this reason, the thread 23 of the drill head 56 and the drill bit 16 can be slightly separated e.g., about 0.02 inches apart.

锚10需要具有足够的结构强度以承受大的扭力而不会崩溃,特别是在钻头16处。 Anchor 10 is required to have sufficient structural strength to withstand large torque will not collapse, especially in the drill bit 16. 如上所述,薄的壁38会导致锚10崩溃的潜在趋势,当驱动锚10进入支撑部件2时,薄的壁38提供很少的支持以抵抗锚10承受大的扭力。 As described above, the thin wall 38 will result in the collapse of the underlying trend anchor 10, when driving the anchor 10 into the support member 2, a thin wall 38 to provide little support to resist anchor 10 to withstand high torque. 因为这个原因,锚IO、特别是钻头16具有加强件。 For this reason, anchor IO, in particular, the drill bit 16 having a reinforcing member. 钻螺纹23对钻头16提供结构加强作用。 Diamond drill thread 23 pairs 16 provides structural reinforcement effect. 此结构加强作用是重要的,因为驱动锚10进入支撑部件2 时会产生大的扭力,特别是当锚壁38薄而不能自己提供强的结构支持时。 Strengthening the role of this structure is important because driving the anchor into the support member 10 will produce a large torque 2:00, especially when the anchor thin wall 38 can not provide strong structural support themselves while.

继续参考图l、 2,远端部分22的外部螺纹23可以包括两个通常为螺旋形的排列成双螺旋的螺纹23'、 23"。螺纹23'、 23"的双螺旋结构提供了围绕远端部分22的附加的支持,用于帮助防止远端部分22由于驱动锚IO进入支撑部件2的扭力而崩溃。 With continued reference to FIG. L, 2, outer threads 23 of the distal portion 22 may include two generally helical arrangement of double helical thread 23 ', 23. "Threads 23', 23" of the double helix structure provides far around Additional support end portion 22, to help prevent the distal end of the anchor portion 22 due to the driving torque IO into the support member 2 of collapse. 双螺旋螺纹23'、 23"也提供平衡的驱动进入支撑部件2以及钻头16与支撑部件2更紧密的接合。另外,双螺旋螺纹23'、 23"延伸到一个最接近钻头16的轴向位置,这样锚10能够迅速接合并钻进支撑部件2中。 Double helix threads 23 ', 23 "also provide balanced driving into the supporting member 2 and the drill bit 16 closer engagement with the support member 2. In addition, the double helix threads 23', 23" extend to an axial position closest to the drill bit 16 , so that anchor 10 can quickly engage and drill the support member 2.

优选地,每一个双螺旋的螺纹23'、 23"具有实质上相同的螺距P,这样螺纹23'、 23"中的一个不会超过另一个。 Preferably, each of the double helix threads 23 ', 23 "have substantially the same pitch P, so that threads 23', 23" does not exceed one another. 优选地,第二螺纹23 "被轴向设置于距第一螺纹23'大约半个螺纹23'的螺距P的位置,例如当一个螺距P为约0.2英寸时就是0.1英寸,这样在沿远端部分22的每一个轴向位置上都有在任一边提供结构上的支持的螺纹23'、 23"。 Preferably, the second thread 23 'are axially disposed at a distance from the first thread 23' approximately half the thread 23 'of the pitch P of the position, such as when a pitch P of about 0.2 inches is 0.1 inches, so that the distal Each axial position of the upper portion 22 has a support structure on either side of the threads 23 on ', 23. " 优选地,双螺旋的螺纹23'、 23" 具有实质上相同的螺纹深度TH。 Preferably, the double helix threads 23 ', 23' having substantially the same thread depth TH.

双螺旋的第一螺纹23'延续成为中间部分20上的螺纹21而第二螺纹23" 只存在于远端部分22上。螺纹23'、 23"也都能够以双螺旋延续到中间部分20 上(没有画出),为中间部分20提供与远端部分22相同的结构上的支持。 Double helix of the first screw 23 'continuation of the thread 20 on an intermediate portion 21 and the second thread 23 "is only present on distal portion 22. The threads 23' on the portions 20, 23 'are also able to continue to the double helix intermediate (not shown), an intermediate portion 20 provided with the same structure on the distal end of the support portion 22. 如果第二螺纹23"延续到中间部分上,它将提供与支撑部件2的进一步的接合。 If the second thread 23 "continue to an intermediate portion, which will provide further engagement with the support member 2.

如上所述,允许安装紧固件钻头36延伸通过锚10的钻头16是所期望的, 这样使用者就能够使用不同长度的安装紧固件4。 As described above, allows to install the fastener 36 extends through the drill bit 16 of the anchor 10 is desirable, so that the user can use mounting fasteners 4 of different lengths. 但是,如果当安装紧固件4 开始钻入支撑部件2时锚10没有充分地与支撑部件2相接合,安装紧固件4 的转动将导致安装紧固件螺纹5把锚10拉退出干墙1,即所谓的"顶托", 这将导致锚10的彻底损坏并导致干墙接合螺纹19使干墙1出现破损留痕。 However, if you start when installing fasteners 4 2:00 anchor drill support member 10 is not fully engage with the support member 2, 4 mounting fastener rotation will result in the installation of fasteners 10 to pull the anchor thread 5 exit drywall 1, the so-called "backwater", which will cause irreversible damage and lead anchor 10 engages drywall drywall screw 19 so a broken left marks appear. 当安装紧固件4被钻进支撑部件2时,通过部件接合螺纹21和钻孔螺纹23 使锚10和支撑部件2实质地接合来防止顶托的出现。 When installing the fastener support member 4 is drilling 2, 10 and 23 so that the support member 2 anchor substantive engagement to prevent the emergence of backwater by member engaging the threaded screw 21 and drilling. 如果安装紧固件4没有 If you do not install the fasteners 4

中间部分 Middle section

13刺穿或者穿过锚IO,中间部分20的部件接合力并不严重。 13 pierced through the anchor or IO, part 20 of the middle part of the bonding force is not serious. 但是,锚10与支撑部件2充分的接合仍然是需要的,因为与支撑部件2的接合是锚10的紧固值的主要贡献来源。 However, a sufficient bonding the anchor 2 with the support member 10 is still required, since the engaging support member 2 is the main contributor fastening anchor value (10).

参看图2、 3,部件接合螺纹21被设置于中间部分20上并包括一个根部28和一个脊29,所述脊29的脊径MC基本小于干墙接合螺纹的脊径DC。 Referring to Figure 2, 3, the engagement member 21 is provided on the threaded intermediate portion 20 and includes a root portion 28 and a ridge 29, the ridge ridge diameter MC 29 is substantially smaller than drywall engaging thread ridge diameter DC. 在图2所示的实施例中,中间部分20的根部28通常为圆锥形,这样根部28朝远端部分22逐渐略微变细以便于安装锚10时特别是在木质的支撑部件上安装锚10时所需要的扭矩被最小化,因为这可以使得中间部分20的根径MR 和脊径MC更小。 In the embodiment shown in Figure 2, the intermediate portion 20 of the root portion 28 is generally conical in shape, so that the base section 28 toward the distal end portion 22 is gradually tapered slightly to facilitate mounting anchors 10 installed anchor 10 in particular on a wooden support member torque required is minimized, because it can make the middle part of the root diameter MR 20 and ridge trails MC smaller. 在一个实施例中,部件接合螺纹根部28以一个介于约1/2 度和约4度之间的角度逐渐变细,优选地为约2.25度。 In one embodiment, the engagement member 28 to the thread root angle a between about 1/2 and about 4 degrees between the degree of tapering, preferably about 2.25 degrees.

最大的中间部分的脊径被优先地选择得使干墙接合螺纹19和干墙1之间的接合最大化,特别是当锚IO仅被安装于干墙中时。 The maximum diameter of the intermediate portion of the ridge is preferentially chosen so that drywall engaging threading 19 and drywall 1 to maximize the engagement between, especially when the anchor is attached to IO only when the drywall. 例如, 一个锚10的干墙接合螺纹直径DC为约1/2英寸,那么最大的部件接合螺纹直径MC为大约1/4英寸或者更小是理想的。 For example, a dry wall anchor 10 engages the thread diameter DC of about 1/2 inch, then the maximum thread diameter MC engagement member is about 1/4 inch or less is desirable.

与下面描述的干墙接合螺纹19相比,部件接合螺纹21的螺纹深度MH 基本小于干墙接合螺纹191的螺纹深度DH。 And described below as compared to drywall engaging thread 19, the thread depth MH thread engaging member 21 is substantially smaller than drywall engaging thread 191 of the thread depth DH. 中间部分20的脊径MC也基本小于近端部分18的脊径DC,这样在支撑部件2 (例如一个木质栓)中所需要的安装扭矩不会过大。 MC-diameter intermediate ridge portion 20 is also substantially less than the land diameter DC of proximal portion 18, such that the support member 2 (e.g., a wood bolt) in the installation torque required is not excessive. 部件接合螺纹21的脊径MC和螺纹深度MH被优先选择为足够小,这样上述锚10在钻入支撑部件2而停顿时不会使干墙1受损留痕或者戳破干墙1,并且在停顿中部件接合螺纹21不会和干墙1相接合, 所述的中间部件接合螺纹21与干墙1的接合会将干墙1顶托离开支撑部件2。 MC member engaging thread diameter and thread depth ridge MH 21 is preferentially selected to be small enough so that the above does not make the anchor 10 drill drywall pause when a supporting member 2 and traces of damage or puncture the drywall 1, and In the pause in the 21-member joining the thread will not engage drywall 1, wherein the intermediate member 21 engages the threaded engagement drywall drywall will leave a backwater a support member 2.

虽然中间部分20和远端部分22的较大的螺纹深度MH、 TH会导致支撑部件2中较高的拔出阻力,还会基本提高驱动锚10进入木质的或者其他材料的支撑部件所需要的扭矩,造成使用者安装锚10的困难,特别是在使用手动的螺丝刀时。 Although the intermediate portion 20 and a larger thread depth 22 of the distal portion of MH, TH will cause the support member 2 in a higher pull-out resistance, but also substantially enhance the driving anchor 10 into the wood or other material required for the support member torque, causing the user to install the anchor 10 is difficult, especially when using a manual screwdriver. 因此,在选择螺纹深度MH、 TH时应当考虑到在中间部分20 被驱入支撑部件2时的可以接受的扭矩。 Thus, in, TH MH is selected thread depth should be considered in the intermediate portion 20 is driven into the supporting member 2 can accept torque.

在图1所示的实施例中,中间部分20的螺纹21是一个通常为螺旋形的螺纹21,是一个钻孔螺纹23'的延续并延伸到干墙接合螺纹19上(下面将述及)。 In continuation of the embodiment shown in Figure 1, the intermediate threaded portion 20 21 is a generally helical thread 21, is a drilling thread 23 'and extends on to drywall engaging thread 19 (described later) . 中间部分20的外部螺纹21也可以与远端部分22中相同为双螺旋,可以为中间部分20提供附加的结构上的支持。 The intermediate portion 20 of the outer thread 21 and the distal portion 22 may be the same as the double helix, can provide additional structural support for intermediate portion 20. 中间螺纹21在螺纹21的基底部和根部28之间也有一个曲率半径以防止在螺纹21基底部形成应力的集中。 Intermediate thread 21 between the thread root 21 and the base 28 also has a radius of curvature to prevent concentration of stress is formed at the bottom of the thread 21 group.

中间部分20和远端部分22的长度之和ML优选地大于干墙1的厚度T, 这样当锚10在开始钻入支撑部件2之前停顿时,近端部分18的较大脊的螺纹19 (下面述及)不会与干墙1接合,所述螺纹19与干墙1的接合会趋向于剥脱干墙1并在干墙1的表面留下一个大疤痕。 Intermediate portion 20 and the length of the distal portion of the ML 22 and preferably greater than the wall thickness T 1 of dry, so that when the anchor 10 before beginning to drill into support member 2 pause, the larger proximal end portion 18 of the thread ridge 19 ( mentioned below) will not be an engagement with drywall, engaging the threads 19 and drywall 1 will tend to peel a drywall and drywall surfaces leaving a big scar. 长度ML应当足够长以便于远端部分22在干墙接合螺纹19开始与干墙1相接合之前完成在干墙1上的钻孔,特别是在锚10仅被驱进干墙时。 Length ML should be long so as to engage the wall 22 when the stem 19 before the start of the threaded engagement with drywall 1 at the completion of drilling a dry wall on, particularly in the anchor 10 is driven into drywall only in the distal portion sufficiently. 这是优选的,因为在钻入一种材料时,沿轴向向前驱进穿过这种材料基本慢于使用螺纹驱进穿过这种材料。 This is preferable, because the drill into a material, the precursor into the axial direction to pass through such a material substantially slower than driving into threaded through this material. 例如,使用干墙接合螺纹19驱动锚10沿轴向穿过干墙1要比锚10钻孔进入干墙1快的多。 For example, using drywall screw 19 engages the drive anchor 10 axially through a drywall anchor than 10 drilled into the drywall a much faster. 如果在干墙接合螺纹19开始与干墙1接合之前钻孔步骤没有完成,那么干墙接合螺纹19很可能会剥脱干墙1而不是驱动锚10穿过它。 If you engage in drywall and drywall screw 19 starts before drilling a bonding step is not completed, then the drywall engaging thread 19 is likely to be stripped and not drive a drywall anchor 10 through it. 另外,平衡中间部分20和远端部分22的长度之和ML与驱动锚10所需要的安装扭矩是很重要的,特别是在支撑部件2中。 In addition, the balance of the intermediate portion 20 and the length of the distal end portion 22 and ML 10 with the drive anchor installation torque required is very important, especially in the support member 2.

继续图l、 2所示的实施例,中间部分20包括用于结构支持的肋58。 , Continue embodiment shown in FIG. L 2 cases, intermediate portion 20 includes ribs 58 for structural support. 优选地,肋58轴向延伸并径向略微突出于中间部分20的根部28。 Preferably, ribs 58 extending axially and radially slightly protruding root portion 20 of the intermediate 28. 肋58也可以被设置于近端部分18或者远端部分22,用于在支撑部件2中钻孔或者攻螺纹时提供更多的沿锚10的结构上的支持。 Ribs 58 may also be provided in the proximal portion 18 or distal portion 22, for drilling or provide additional structural support along anchor 10 when tapping on the support member 2.

在一个优选实施例中,锚10包括一个钻孔螺纹23',23"的双螺旋结构和轴向肋58,它们协同形成一个围绕远端部分22和中间部分20的支撑笼或者支撑格架,用于防止由于驱动锚10进入支撑部件2产生的高扭力而导致的锚10 的崩溃。 In one preferred embodiment, the anchor 10 includes a threaded borehole 23 ', 23 "of the double helix and axial ribs 58, which cooperate to form a portion around the distal end 22 and intermediate portion 20 of the support cage or support grid, Since the drive is used to prevent the collapse of the anchor into the support member 10 produced two high-torque caused by the anchor 10.

近端部分 Proximal part

参看图l一4,近端部分18包括一个当锚IO停顿时用于与干墙1接合的有螺纹的外部,这样物件3的负载将由干墙1承受,特别是锚IO仅被驱进干墙时。 Referring to Figure l-4, the proximal portion 18 includes a threaded exterior, such objects IO load a standstill when the anchor for an engagement with drywall drywall 3 will be a bear, especially anchor IO only be driven into the dry When the wall. 干墙接合螺纹19将一个匹配的螺纹60形成于干墙1中,这样干墙接合螺纹19与干墙1之间的接合就完成了。 Drywall engaging thread 19 matching the thread 60 formed in drywall 1 so that drywall engaging thread 19 engages drywall 1 and between is completed. 有螺纹的外部包括设置于近端部分18上的螺纹19,所述螺纹19具有一个脊径为DC的脊27和一个根径为DR 的根部26。 Includes a threaded external portion 18 disposed on the proximal end of the thread 19, the thread 19 has a diameter DC ridge ridges 27 and root diameter DR of root 26. 干墙接合螺纹19是一个深螺纹,其中脊27和根部26之间的距2 离或者螺纹深度DH相对于部件接合螺纹21和钻孔螺纹23要大。 Drywall is a deep engagement threaded screw 19, which apart from two or thread depth DH ridge between 27 and 26 relative to the root of the engagement member 21 and the drilling screw thread 23 is larger. 深的干墙接合螺纹19有助于使干墙接合螺纹19与干墙1接触的表面积最大化,提高拔出阻力。 Deep drywall screw 19 engages the engagement helps to maximize the surface area of drywall and drywall screw 19 a contact to improve pull-out resistance. 干墙接合螺纹19的螺纹深度DH基本大于部件接合螺纹21和钻孔螺纹23的螺纹深度MH、 TH,这将在干墙1中提供较高的拔出阻力。 Drywall engaging thread thread depth DH 19 is substantially greater than the engagement member 21 and threaded screw thread depth drilling the MH 23, TH, which will in drywall 1 provide high pull-out resistance. 干墙接合螺纹脊27的直径DC可以沿近端部件18的全长基本上保持不变。 Full length drywall engaging thread ridges can diameter DC 27 in the proximal member 18 remains substantially unchanged. 在一个实施例中,脊27的直径DC是大约根部26的直径DR的两倍。 In one embodiment, ridge diameter DC 27 is about the root diameter DR 26 twice.

参看图5,优选为大约干墙接合螺纹19的3/4转被接合于干墙1的后面, 这样干墙接合螺纹19在干墙1的后表面50上与纸51相接合。 Referring to Figure 5, preferably from about drywall engaging thread 19 of 3/4 of a turn is joined to the back of drywall 1, so that drywall engaging thread 19 in drywall rear surface of an upper sheet 50 and 51 engage. 当驱动锚10 仅进入干墙时,在干墙后表面50上接合纸51是特别重要的,因为与纸51的接合提供了锚10和干墙1之间接合的一个重要部分。 10 when driving the anchor into the drywall only, in the rear surface 50 engages drywall paper 51 is particularly important, because the bonding sheet 51 is provided with the anchor 10 and drywall 1 is an important part of the engagement between the. 干墙接合螺纹19没有被设计成驱进支撑部件2中,因为深干墙接合螺纹19需要一个非常高的扭矩将锚10驱进支撑部件2中。 Drywall engaging thread 19 is not designed to be driven into support member 2 because the deep drywall engaging thread 19 require a very high torque to drive anchor 10 into support member 2.

参看图2、 3,近端部分18的根部26向中间部分20逐渐变细,这样根部26通常呈圆锥形,而且这使得近端部分18顶端的根部26的直径大于近端部分18底部的根部26的直径。 Referring to Figure 2, 3, root 26 of proximal portion 18 tapers toward the middle portion 20, so that the root 26 is generally conical in shape, and which makes the root 18 to the top of the proximal portion 26 is larger than the diameter of proximal portion 18 of the bottom of the root diameter 26. 在图2所示的实施例中,近端部分18逐渐变细的根部26和中间部分20的逐渐变细的根部28是通常连续的并以相同的角度逐渐变细,这样根部26、 28沿相同的圆锥体延伸,使锚10成为一个弹道的或者子弹式的形状。 In the embodiment shown in Figure 2, tapered root root 18 of proximal portion 26 and a tapered intermediate portion 20 of 28 is generally continuous and in the same tapered angle, so that the roots 26, 28 along the the same cone extends 10 to become an anchor, or the shape of a bullet trajectory.

在图1所示的实施例中,近端部分18的外部螺纹19是一个部件接合螺纹21的延续的螺纹19,只是干墙接合螺纹19具有一个脊径DC和螺纹深度DH,其中脊径DC基本大于中间部分20的脊径MD,而螺纹深度DH基本大于中间部分20的螺纹深度MH,参见图2、 3。 In the embodiment shown in Figure 1, the proximal portion 18 of the outer thread 19 is a continuation of the threaded member 19 engages threads 21, except that drywall engaging thread 19 having a diameter DC and a thread ridge depth DH, wherein ridge diameter DC substantially larger than the diameter of the intermediate portion 20 of the ridge MD, and the thread depth DH is substantially larger than the thread depth MH intermediate portion 20, see Figure 2, 3. 在一个实施例中,近端部分18的脊径DC大约是中间部分20的脊径MC的两倍。 In one embodiment, the diameter DC ridge proximal portion 18 is about twice the diameter MC of intermediate portion of the ridge 20.

优选地,在中间部分20和近端部分18中间有一个过渡区域62,其中脊径和螺纹深度从部件接合螺纹21到干墙接合螺纹19增大。 Preferably, the intermediate portion 20 and proximal portion 18 has an intermediate transition region 62, wherein the ridge diameter and thread depth from the engagement member 21 to the threaded drywall engaging thread 19 increases. 在一个实施例中, 过渡区域62延伸大约一个螺纹圈的3/4。 In one embodiment, the transition region 62 extends about 3/4 of a threaded ring. 如图1中所示,干墙接合螺纹19优选为通常的螺旋形。 As shown in Figure 1, drywall engaging thread 19 is preferably a generally spiral. 干墙接合螺纹19也可以是一个如上所述的两个螺纹的双螺旋,其中双螺旋中的一个螺纹可以是一个细螺纹,所述细螺纹的螺纹深度基本小于干墙接合螺纹19的螺纹深度DH。 Drywall engaging thread 19 may also be a double helix of two threads as described above, wherein one of the double helix can be a fine thread screw, the fine screw thread depth substantially less than the thread depth drywall engaging thread 19 of the DH. 双螺旋中的第二螺纹将为锚10 A second double helix screw anchor 10 will

16提供附加的阻力。 16 provides additional resistance. 干墙接合螺纹19还可以包括一个在螺纹19的基底部和根部26之间的曲率半径,使干墙螺纹19的基底部的应力集中最小化。 Drywall engaging thread 19 may also include a radius of curvature between the base portion 19 and the thread root 26, so that the base of drywall thread 19 of the stress concentration is minimized.

回到图2、 4,干墙接合螺纹19的上端被凸缘40隔开以形成在凸缘40 和干墙接合螺纹19之间的颈部64。 Returning to Figure 2, 4, the upper end of drywall engaging thread 19 is separated by a flange 40 formed in the flange 40 and drywall engaging thread 19 of neck portion 64 between. 颈部64允许凸缘40的上表面41装在干墙表面48的水平或者低于这个水平,如图4中所示,在到达凸缘40之前的颈部64的干墙接合螺纹19的中断使得产生了一个位于干墙1内的螺纹60中的间隔,所述间隔允许通过凸缘40压紧邻近的物质。 Neck 64 allows upper surface 41 of the flange 40 mounted on the horizontal surface 48 of the drywall or below this level, shown in Figure 4, before reaching the flange 40 of the neck 64 of drywall engaging thread 19 is interrupted such that a wall of a threaded stem 60 is located within the interval 1, the interval allowed by the pressing flange 40 adjacent material. 此外,颈部64保证干墙接合螺纹19与干墙表面48上的纸49间隔开,这样干墙接合螺纹19不与纸49相接合并扭曲它而产生一个不期望的干墙表面48的外观。 In addition, the neck 64 to ensure drywall engaging thread 19 with drywall surface 48 on the sheet 49 spaced apart, so that drywall engaging thread 19 is not in contact with the paper 49 to produce a combined twisting it undesirable appearance of drywall surface 48 . 颈部64可具有一个介于大约0.03英寸和约0.1英寸之间的长度NL,优选为约0.07英寸。 Neck portion 64 may have a length NL of between about 0.03 inches and about 0.1 inches, preferably between about 0.07 inches.

包括凸缘40的近端部分18的长度DL,优选为略微大于干墙1的厚度T, 如图4中所示,这样,优选地,就有一部分的干考接合螺纹19在干墙后表面50的后面与后表面纸51相接合。 Includes a proximal end 40 of the length of the DL flange portion 18 is preferably slightly larger than the thickness T 1 of dry wall, shown in Figure 4, so that, preferably, there is a portion of the stem 19 engages in the test surface of the threaded drywall 50 and the rear surface of the back sheet 51 is engaged. 如果锚10被驱入支撑部件2的位置,那么谨慎地选择近端部分18的长度DL以平衡在干墙后表面50上与纸51相接合的干墙接合螺纹19的长度与驱动这个长度的干墙接合螺纹19进入支撑部件2 所需要的扭矩是很重要的。 If the anchor 10 is driven into the support member in position 2, then carefully choose the length of the proximal portion 18 of the DL to balance in the dry wall surfaces 50 and 51 engage the paper drywall screw 19 engages and drives the length of this length drywall engaging thread 19 into the supporting member 2, the torque required is very important. 另外,锚10可以用于不同厚度的干墙1是所期望的,所以提醒下述内容是很重要的:近端部分18的某一个长度DL允许螺纹19在一种厚度的干墙内与后表面纸51相接合,但是在另一种厚一些的干墙内又可能太短以至于不能接合后表面纸51,或者相反,近端部分18对一种较薄的干墙来说太长以至于太多的干墙接合螺纹19必须被驱进一个支撑部件,从而导致需要更高的安装扭矩。 In addition, the anchor 10 may be used for different thicknesses of drywall 1 is desirable, so it is important to remind the following contents: the proximal end portion 18 of a certain length DL allows the thread 19 in a dry thickness of the rear wall engages the surface of the paper 51, in an alternative thicker walls they may dry too short to engage rear surface paper 51, or conversely, proximal portion 18 to one thin wall is too long to dry As much drywall engaging thread 19 must be driven into a support member, resulting in a higher required installation torque.

千墙接合螺纹19的螺距P被优选得在干墙1中至少存在一整圈的干墙接合螺纹19,优选在约1.75圈到约2.25圈之间,进一步优选为嵌入干墙1的干墙接合螺纹19的2整圈。 Thousands wall engaging thread 19 of pitch P is preferably obtained in the dry wall 1 there is at least one complete turn in drywall engaging thread 19, preferably between about 1.75 to about 2.25 circle ring, more preferably embedded in drywall 1. Drywall engaging thread 19 of two full turns. 在一个实施例中,干墙1的厚度为1/2英寸或5/8 英寸,干墙接合螺纹19的螺距P在约l/8英寸和约0.3英寸之间,优选为约0.2英寸。 In one embodiment, the thickness of the drywall 1 1/2 inch or 5/8 inch, drywall engaging thread 19 of pitch P between about l / 8 inch and about 0.3 inches, preferably about 0.2 inches. 优选地,千墙接合螺纹19的螺距通常与部件接合螺纹21的螺距及钻孔螺纹23的螺距相等。 Preferably, joining thousands of wall and thread pitch is usually 19-member joining pitch and drilled screw thread pitch of 23 is equal to 21. 在一个实施例中(未画出),最接近过渡区域的干墙接合螺纹19的螺距大于其余的最接近张开端14的干墙接合螺纹19的螺距。 In one embodiment (not shown), the pitch of the transition area closest to drywall engaging thread 19 is greater than the rest of the wall closest to the flared end 14 of stem 19 engages the thread pitch. 当这个较大螺距的螺纹与干墙1相接合时,将锚10拉进干墙相对较快, When this large pitch thread engages with a drywall, will pull into the drywall anchor 10 is relatively fast,

17有助于抵消任何可能发生的顶托。 17 helps to offset any backwater may occur.

张开端 Zhang beginning

参看图l一4,凸缘40位于锚10的张开端14并包括一个与干墙接合螺纹根部26相比增大的直径FD,使得凸缘40能够与干墙前表面48上的纸49 接合。 Referring to Figure l a 4, flange 40 is located in the flared end 10 of anchor 14 and includes an engagement with drywall thread root 26 is increased compared to the diameter FD, so that the flange 40 can engage with the paper 49 on the front surface 48 of drywall. 在一个实施例中,凸缘40的凸缘直径FD在约0.45英寸到约0.6英寸之间,优选为约0.515英寸。 In one embodiment, the flange 40 of the flange diameter FD of between about 0.45 inches to about 0.6 inches, preferably about 0.515 inches. 凸缘40还包括转矩传送面15,这样锚10能够被使用者用一个起子旋转。 Flange 40 also includes a torque transmitting surface 15, so that the anchor 10 can be a user with a screwdriver to rotate. 凸缘40可以包括一个用于接收起子43的尖端的孔穴42,参考图8,其中孔穴42被设计用于一种特殊类型的起子。 May include a flange 40 for receiving a screwdriver tip 43 of the cavities 42, with reference to FIG. 8, in which the cavity 42 is designed for a specific type of screwdriver. 孔穴42 是一个Phmips型孔穴用于接受一个Phillips型起子的尖端。 Hole 42 is a Phmips type cavity for receiving a Phillips type screwdriver tip.

孔穴42具有一个大于腔8的内直径的有效直径以容纳起子43,这样在孔穴42处的锚壁38比其他沿锚10的轴向位置的锚壁38要薄。 Cavity 42 having an effective diameter larger than the inner diameter of the cavity 8 to accommodate driver 43 so that anchor wall 38 of the cavity 42 is thinner than the other 38 to the axial position of the anchor 10 along the wall anchor. 由于锚10所经受的所有的扭矩趋向于被集中在孔穴42,张开端14可能在锚10被充分地驱动之前断裂,特别是当锚10被驱入支撑部件2时,这是因为驱动锚10进入支撑部件2需要高扭矩。 Since all torque experienced by anchor 10 tends to when it is concentrated in cavity 42, flared end 14 may be before the anchor 10 is sufficiently driven fracture, especially when the anchor 10 is driven into support member 2 which, because the drive anchor 10 into the support member 2 requires a high torque. 在一个如图3中所示的实施例中,锚10包括一个在孔穴42处加宽的壁39形成一个隆起66,用于加强孔穴42。 In one embodiment illustrated in Figure 3, anchor 10 includes a widened wall 39 at cavity 42 is formed a ridge 66, for reinforcing the cavity 42. 具有隆起66 的加宽的壁39延伸整个孔穴42的轴向长度用于在驱动锚IO过程中充分地支持孔穴42。 Wall 66 having a widened ridge 39 extending the entire axial length of the cavity 42 of the anchor for driving IO process to fully support the cavity 42.

在一个木质支撑部件2中木头的硬度和密度可以有很大的变化。 Can vary widely in a wooden support member 2 wood hardness and density. 硬度和密度的变化导致在干墙1中装凸缘40所需要的安装扭矩的变化,所以凸缘40的后缘表面41与干墙表面齐平或者低于干墙表面。 Hardness and density changes cause changes in the drywall installed with an installation torque flange 40 needed, so the edge of the surface of the flange 41 of the drywall surface flush with or below the surface of the drywall. 此外,与仅仅驱动锚10穿过干墙1和支撑部件2相比,当在干墙中装凸缘40时驱动锚10所需要的扭矩显著上升。 In addition, only drive through the drywall anchor 10 compared to the second, when installed with drywall anchor flange 40 is driven by the need for a significant increase in torque of 10 and a support member. 在一些情况下,安装扭矩的上升足够高以至于使用者必须施加一个很大的扭矩,所述很大的扭矩使使用者趋向于提供一个太大的扭矩, 不仅仅安装凸缘40而是过度旋转锚10并剥脱一些干墙1。 In some cases, increase in installation torque is high enough so that the user must apply a large torque, the large torque that the user tends to provide too much of the torque, the mounting flange 40 but not over rotating anchor 10 and a stripping some drywall. 当必需的安装扭矩太大(也就是大于50 in-lbs),使用普通的手动工具装凸缘40会变得很困难或者不可能。 When the required installation torque is too large (ie, greater than 50 in-lbs), using ordinary hand tools mounting flange 40 will become very difficult or impossible.

为了解决这个安装问题,锚10的凸缘40可以被修改以降低要求使用者提供的扭矩负载。 To solve this mounting problem, flange 40 of anchor 10 may be modified to reduce the torque load requirements provided by the user. 在一个实施例中(未画出),锚10不包括一个凸缘,或者包括一个直径小于干墙接合螺纹19脊径DC的凸缘,这样必需的安装扭矩实 In one embodiment (not shown), anchor 10 does not include a flange, or includes a diameter smaller than the diameter of the ridge 19 engages drywall DC threaded flange, so that the required installation torque real one embodiment

18质上被降低了。 18 quality is reduced. 这使得使用者更易于安装凸缘、或者锚10的后缘端,并降低 This allows the user easier mounting flange, or the trailing edge end of the anchor 10, and reduces

过度旋转的可能性,因为扭矩增大被基本降低或者消除了。 The possibility of over-rotation because the torque increase is substantially reduced or eliminated.

断开凸缘 Disconnect the flange

【0059】锚10可以包括一个断开凸缘40',如图8中所示。 [0059] Anchor 10 may include a disconnect flange 40 ', as shown in Fig. 锚IO包括削弱部件的断开区域68,可以是例如划痕、凹口或者小洞来使凸缘40'在预设扭矩下断开,当驱动器43给锚10施加预设扭矩时,凸缘40'自锚本体12断开,以使用户无需安置凸缘40'。 IO anchor member includes a weakened break-away area 68 may be, for example scratches, recesses or holes to the flange 40 'off at preset torque, the driver 43 when the anchor 10 is applied to the preset torque, the flange 40 'Since the anchor body 12 is disconnected, so that users do not need to place the flange 40'. 断开区域68位于锚10的轴向位置上,因此当凸缘40'断开时,剩余的锚本体12未破损的部分是在干墙表面48水平位置或者在干墙表面48水平位置以下,因此锚10仍然是有功能的并能够接收安装紧固件4。 Break-away area 68 is located at an axial position 10 of the anchor, so that when the flange 40 'is broken, the remainder of the anchor main body portion 12 is not damaged in the dry wall 48 in a horizontal position or dry wall surface 48 below the horizontal position of the surface, Thus the anchor 10 is still functional and able to receive mounting fastener 4. 预设的凸缘40'的断开扭矩应当是一个预设的大于实质上驱动锚10的全长进入干墙1和支撑部件2通常所需要的扭矩,因此在凸缘40'断开时,剩余的锚10的最外的部分应当齐平于或者略微埋置于干墙表面48,从而提供了根据应用可能需要或者不需要进一步修整的漂亮完美的外观。 Preset the flange 40 'of a torque-off should be substantially greater than the preset driving the anchor into the drywall 10 full length 2 commonly desired torque and the support member 1, and therefore the flange 40' is turned off, the outermost portion of anchor 10 should be flush with the remaining or slightly embedded in the drywall surface 48, thereby providing the application might or might not according to the beautiful appearance further perfect trimming.

本发明的锚的许多特征已经在上面被描述。 Many features of the present invention have anchor is described above. 作为本发明的例子,下面将讨论几个实施例。 Examples of the present invention, several embodiments will be discussed below.

断开尖头实施例 EXAMPLE tip off

参考图l一4和7,锚10的一个实施例包括至少中间部分20和远端部件22中的一个是易破的,这样安装紧固件4能够折断本体12的一部分16',参见图7,这样安装紧固件钻头36能够延伸越过钻头16的原始位置(参见图4)。 With reference to Figure l a 4 and a 7, the anchor 10 of the embodiment includes at least the intermediate portion 20 and distal member 22 is a frangible, so that mounting fastener 4 can break portion 16 of body 12 ', see Fig. 7 , so that the drill mounting fasteners 36 can extend beyond the original position of the drill bit 16 (see FIG. 4).

锚10的断开尖头实施例被设计成,当一个长于锚10的安装紧固件4被使用时,安装紧固件钻头36使锚10的钻头16折断或者断开锚10的钻头16, 以便于安装紧固件钻头36能够延伸得长于锚本体12,如图7所示,这样锚10和安装紧固件4的使用者能够使用特别长的安装紧固件4用于具有不同厚度的物件3,而不必担心锚10是否足够长以支持安装紧固件4。 Disconnect the tip 10 of the anchor embodiments are designed such that when a mounting fastener 10 is longer than the anchor 4 is used, mounting fastener 36 of the drill bit 16 of the anchor 10 to break or disconnect the anchor 10 of the drill bit 16, in order to install the fastener 36 can extend to be longer than the drill anchor body 12, shown in Figure 7, so that the anchor 10 and mounting fastener 4 can use the user extra long mounting fastener 4 for different thicknesses 3 items without having to worry about whether the anchor 10 is long enough to support the installation of fasteners 4. 可选择地, 一个较短的安装紧固件4可以被使用,这样安装紧固件钻头36没有刺穿锚本体12,但仍保留在腔8中。 Alternatively, a shorter mounting fastener 4 can be used, so that the drill bit 36 is not installed fastener piercing anchor body 12, but remains in the chamber 8.

参看图4、 7,在锚10被安装之后,安装紧固件4被驱入腔8直到安装紧固件钻头36顶到内腔8的端点9。 Referring to FIG. 4, 7, after anchor 10 is installed, mounting fastener 4 is driven into the end chamber 8 until mounting fastener drill bit 36 into the lumen 8 of 9.

继续图l一3的实施例,远端部分22包括一个锚本体12结构上的削弱部件以保证钻头16在希望的位置断开。 Example l a continued Figure 3, the distal end portion 22 comprises a weakened anchor member 12 on the body structure to ensure that the drill bit 16 is disconnected at the desired position. 削弱部件的一个例子是螺纹23上的一个裂缝,例如一个位于理想的轴向断开位置的纵向或者横向的凹口70。 An example of a fracture weakening member is threaded 23 on, for example, one located in the desired axial position of the longitudinal or transverse disconnection recess 70. 由于螺纹23提供了结构上的支持,螺纹23上的凹口70提供了锚本体12上的一个小面积的结构上的薄弱区域,所述的薄弱区域不能承受安装紧固件4顶压腔末端9产生的张力。 Since the threads 23 provided on the support structure, the threaded recess 23 is provided on the area of weakness 70 the structure of the anchor body 12 on a small area on, the weakened area can not withstand the pressure chamber mounting fastener 4 ends 9 generates tension. 凹口70还有助于防止螺纹23从安装紧固件4周围松脱,当安装紧固件4被从锚10中移除时,这会有助于防止锚10被拧出干墙1。 Notches 70 also helps to prevent the threaded fastener 23 from 4 installed around loose, when mounting fasteners 4 is removed from the anchor 10, which will help prevent the anchor 10 is screwed out of a dry wall. 在一个实施例中,凹口70的宽度是大约0.17英寸,进入螺纹的深度大约为0.03英寸。 In one embodiment, the width of the recess 70 is about 0.17 inches, a depth into the thread of about 0.03 inches.

参看图3,另一个削弱部件包括在理想的轴向断开位置造成一个在腔8 的直径上的尖锐的台阶72。 Referring to Figure 3, another weakening means comprises an open position in the desired axial caused a sharp step in the diameter of the chamber 8 72. 台阶72允许形成应力的集中,这提高了钻头16 在台阶72处断开的可能性。 Stepped portion 72 allows the formation of stress concentration, which increases the possibility of disconnection of the drill bit 16 at the step 72. 其他的削弱部件包括位于钻头16的理想的断开位置的锚本体12上的凹槽或者小洞(未画出),例如一个在腔末端9的通常为圆锥形区域内的内部凹槽。 Other weakening member comprises an anchor body 16 is ideally located in the drill bit 12 on the open position of grooves or holes (not shown), e.g., a generally conical region within the internal recess in the end of the chamber 9.

在一个图9、 IO中所示的钻分开尖头实施例中,远端部分22包括薄弱区域,例如一组均匀地轴向设置的向着钻头16轴向延伸的延伸裂缝74。 In a FIG. 9, the drill tip IO shown in separate embodiments, the distal portion 22 comprises a weakened area, such as crack extends toward the bit group 16 are uniformly axially disposed axially extending 74. 薄弱区域提供了远端部分22的壁38的削弱,当安装紧固件钻头36顶压腔末端9 时,允许安装紧固件4通常沿裂缝74'分裂远端部分22,如图10中所示。 Provides a weak region distal portion 22 of the weakened wall 38, the drill bit 36 when mounting fastener pressure chamber ends 9, allowing mounting fastener 4 generally along the crack 74 'to split the distal end portion 22, as shown in Figure 10 show. 钻头16的分裂部分保持连接于锚本体12而且远端部分螺纹23保持与支撑部件2相接合,以提供一个锚10和支撑部件2之间的更强大的接合。 Bit splitting portion 16 remains connected to the anchor body 12 and distal portion threading 23 is kept engaged with the support member 2 to provide an anchor and the support member 10 between the two more powerful engagement.

由于壁38b设置得接近轴6以允许安装紧固件螺纹5切入壁38b,中间部分20b的相应的根径MR'也较小,这样需要较小的扭矩来安装紧固件, 需要较少的材料来制造。 Because wall 38b is set too close to the shaft 6 to allow mounting fastener threads 5 cut into the walls 38b, 20b of the intermediate portion of the corresponding root diameter MR 'is also small, this requires less torque to install fastener, requires less material manufactured.

锚10b也可以具有类似于断开尖头实施例中锚10的翼54的一套翼54b。 Anchor 10b can also have a similar disconnect prong embodiment 10 of the anchor flaps 54 of a wing 54b. 在一个实施例中,翼54b轴向延伸,但没有刮刻干墙1表面的尖头。 In one embodiment, wings 54b extend axially, but not scratched tip a drywall surface.

如上所述,开罐器实施例中锚10b的近端部分18b和断开尖头实施例中锚10的相应部分具有近似相同的尺寸。 As described above, can opener embodiment of anchor proximal portion 18b 10b and corresponding portions off tip embodiment of anchor 10 have approximately the same size embodiment. 如图2所示,锚10b的中间部分20b 和锚10的中间部分20稍有差异。 As shown, the intermediate portion 10b of anchor 20b and the anchor 10 of the intermediate portion 20 is slightly different in Fig. 中间部分根部28b向末端部分22b縮小的角度基本大于末端部分26b縮小的角度,这样部件接合螺纹根部28b变得小于断开尖头实施例中部件接合螺纹根部28。 An intermediate portion 28b to the root end portion 22b is substantially greater than the angle of narrowing the end portion 26b narrow angle, thus engaging member 28b becomes smaller than the thread root disconnect Example member 28 engages the thread root tip embodiment. 较小的部件接合螺纹根部28b允许安装紧固件螺纹5切入壁38b,从锚本体12b切除钻头16b的一部分。 Smaller member engaging the threaded fastener thread roots 28b allows the installer to cut 5 wall 38b, 12b body part removed from the anchor drill 16b. 在一个实施例中,中间部分20的根径MR'等于约0.16英寸到约0.22英寸, 优选为约0.2英寸。 In one embodiment, the intermediate portion 20 of the root diameter MR 'equal to about 0.16 inches to about 0.22 inches, preferably about 0.2 inches. 锚10b的远端部分22b的最大根径和脊径都小于断开尖头实施例中的相应值。 The distal portion 10b, 22b anchor maximum root diameter and tip off the ridge trails are less than the corresponding value in the implementation examples.

尖头绕过实施例 EXAMPLE pointed bypass

参看图14一18,在另一个实施例的锚10c中,至少中间部分20c和22c 中的一个被安装紧固件头36剌入,这样安装紧固件头36可以迂回绕过钻头16c。 Referring to FIG. 14 a 18, in another embodiment of anchor 10c in the embodiment, at least in the intermediate portion 20c and 22c of a fastener head 36 is mounted into the puncture, so that mounting fastener head 36 can bypass the detour drill 16c. 在图15所示实施例中,腔8c实质上没有延伸入中间部分20c,这样实质上整个中间部分20c和末端部分22c都是实心的,这一点在图15看得最清楚。 In the embodiment shown in Figure 15, the cavity 8c does not extend substantially into intermediate portion 20c, so that substantially the entire intermediate portion 20c and distal portion 22c are solid, which is best seen in FIG. 15. 中间部分20c和末端部分22c中有很少或没有腔8c,这些部分可以具有 An intermediate portion 20c and distal portion 22c has little or no cavity 8c, these portions may have a

22较小的直径,这使得锚10c可以容易的被驱入干墙1和支撑部件2,因为需要较小的扭矩,从而使得锚10c可以较快的被驱入干墙1和支撑部件2。 22 of smaller diameter, which makes anchor 10c can easily be driven into drywall 1 and support member 2 because less torque required, 10c so that the anchor can be driven into a faster drywall 1 and support member 2. 另外, 实心的中间部分20c和末端部分22c在结构上也更结实。 Further, the end portion of the intermediate portion 20c and 22c of the solid structure more solid. 在一个实施例中, 中间部分20c的脊径MC〃等于约0.18英寸到约0.22英寸,优选为约0.2英寸,与上面描述的断开尖头实施例和开罐器实施例中锚10、 10b的脊径相比不同。 In one embodiment, the intermediate portion 20c of the ridge diameter MC〃 equal to about 0.18 inches to about 0.22 inches, preferably about 0.2 inches, disconnecting tip embodiment described above and can opener embodiment anchor 10, 10b compared different ridge trails.

锚10c的腔8c被设计得使安装紧固件4切开并推入侧壁38c的一个薄区域76。 8c cavity anchor 10c is designed so that mounting fastener 4 to cut and pushed into a thin region 76 of sidewall 38c. 然后如图17—18所示,当安装紧固件4通过时,安装紧固件4将中间部分20c和钻孔部分16c推到旁边。 Then shown in Figure 17-18, when mounting fastener 4 by mounting fastener 4 to the intermediate portion 20c and pushed to the side of the perforated portion 16c. 中间部分20c被设计得保持连接到锚本体12c以被安装紧固件4c推到旁边,这样它保持和支撑部件2接合,从而提供拔出阻力和顶住锚10c。 An intermediate portion 20c is designed to remain attached to anchor body 12c to be pushed to the side mounting fastener 4c, so that it maintains and engaging support member 2, thereby providing pull-out resistance and withstand anchor 10c.

在一个如图15所示的实施例中,腔8c在腔端部9c包含一个朝薄区域76 弯曲的轴承面78c。 In an embodiment shown in FIG. 15, the cavity in the cavity end portion 8c 9c comprises a thin area 76 toward the curved bearing surface 78c. 当安装紧固件4被驱动时,其头36压在弯曲的轴承面78c 上形成撞击动作而将中间部分20c和钻孔部分16c推到旁边。 When installing the fastener 4 is driven, its head 36 is pressed against the curved bearing surface 78c is formed the impact action of the intermediate portion 20c and pushed to the side of the perforated portion 16c.

继续图16,薄区域76可以通过一个延伸通过中间部件20的平面52而构成。 Continuing with Figure 16, the thin region 76 may be constituted by an extension member 20 via the intermediate plane 52. 也可以在中间部分20中邻近末端部分18的位置处设置一个凹口80。 May be provided with a recess 80 at a position intermediate portion 18 at a portion 20 adjacent the ends. 凹口80在中间部分20被安装紧固件4推到旁边时帮助中间部分20进行转动或撞击动作。 Recesses 80 in the intermediate portion 20 is pushed when mounting fastener 4 to the side to help the intermediate portion 20 is rotated or impact action.

头240的外部直径HD应该足够小以有效防止干墙1鼓包,伹也应该足够大以使头240可以容纳凹槽242,同时在包围凹槽242的近端214仍然具有足够厚的本体212的壁以提供足够的结构完整性来承受扭矩而锚210不会断裂,所述扭矩用于驱动锚210进入干墙1、优选驱动锚210进入干墙1和在其上安装干墙1的支撑部件2,所述支撑部件2可以是例如木质栓。 External diameter of the head HD 240 should be small enough to effectively prevent the drywall a drum kit, Qu also should be large enough to allow the head 240 to accommodate the groove 242, while groove 242 surrounding the proximal end 214 of the body still has sufficient thickness 212 wall in order to provide sufficient structural integrity to withstand the torque without breaking the anchor 210, the torque for driving the anchor into the drywall 1 210, drive anchor 210 preferably enters drywall 1 mounted thereon and a support member drywall 1 2, the support member 2 can be for example wood bolt.

在一个实施例中,头240的外部直径HD等于脊径PC的约50%到约80 %,优选为约75%到约80%。 In one embodiment, the outer diameter of the head 240 HD equal to about 50% to about 80% of the land diameter of PC, preferably from about 75% to about 80%. 在一个实施例中,头直径HD等于脊径PC的约78% 。 In one embodiment, the diameter of the head HD is equal to about 78% of the land diameter PC. 期望地,头240的外部直径HD基本上接近螺纹219的根径PR,可以是根径PR的约1倍到约1.5倍,优选为约1.25倍到约1.45倍。 Desirably, the outer diameter of the head 240 of the HD 219 is substantially close to the thread root diameter PR, PR root diameter may be from about 1 times to about 1.5 times, preferably from about 1.25 times to about 1.45 times. 在图23所示的一个实施例中,头240的外部直径HD是根径PR的约1.38倍。 In an embodiment shown in FIG. 23, the external diameter of the head HD 240 is approximately 1.38 times the root diameter PR.

在一个实施例中,头240的外部直径HD可以介于约0.25英寸到约0.4 英寸,优选介于约0.3英寸到约0.35英寸;在一个实施例中HD为约0.34英寸,同时螺纹219的脊径PC介于约0.4英寸到约0.5英寸,优选介于约0.42 英寸到约0.45英寸;在另一个实施例中HD为约0.43英寸,同时螺纹219的根径PR介于约0.2英寸到约0.3英寸,优选介于约0.225英寸到约0.25英寸;而在另一个实施例中HD为约0.245英寸。 In one embodiment, the outer diameter of the head HD 240 can range from about 0.25 inch to about 0.4 inches, preferably between about 0.3 inches to about 0.35 inches; HD in one embodiment of about 0.34 inches, while the thread ridge 219 PC diameter of between about 0.4 inches to about 0.5 inches, preferably between about 0.42 inches to about 0.45 inches; in another embodiment HD embodiment of about 0.43 inches, while the thread root diameter PR 219 is between about 0.2 inches to about 0.3 inch, preferably between about 0.225 inches to about 0.25 inches; and in another embodiment, HD is about 0.245 inches.

由于头240相对于接合干墙的螺纹219较小,用户可能难以确定锚210 是否被驱入到了一个合适的深度。 Since the head 240 relative to the adapter 219 threaded drywall smaller, the user may be difficult to determine whether the anchor 210 is driven into a suitable depth. 当一个大头在干墙1中固定时,通常显示锚已经被驱入到合适深度的现象是用户感觉到扭矩突然增加。 When a bulk drywall in a fixed time, usually show anchor has been driven into the appropriate users to feel the depth of the phenomenon is a sudden increase in torque. 对于图23所示的实施例,用户无法感觉到这样的扭矩突增,因为头240具有小的外部直径HD。 For the embodiment shown in FIG. 23, the user can not feel such a sudden increase in the torque, because the head 240 has a small outer diameter HD. 因此,用户需要通过视觉判定来确定合适的锚210的安装深度,驱动锚210直到头240具有合适的深度以和干墙表面248齐平或刚刚低于干墙表面248。 Therefore, the user needs to determine the appropriate installation depth is determined by visual anchor 210, drive anchor 210 until head 240 has the proper depth and drywall surface 248 to flush or just below the drywall surface 248.

参看图25,在一个变换实施例的锚210'中, 一个环形的垫圈或帽246 被安装到头240',这样当锚210'被驱入合适的深度、头240'位于干墙l 中合适的位置时,帽246被从头240'取下。 Referring to Figure 25, in an alternative embodiment of the anchor 210 ', one annular washer or cap 246 is attached to the head 240', so that when the anchor 210 'is driven into a suitable depth, the head 240' is located in a suitable drywall l position, the cap 246 is de novo 240 'removed. 头240'可以包括接收帽246的凹槽241,如图25所示,帽246可以包括和凹槽241吻合的内部唇缘247, 这样帽246可以安全地和头240'保持接合直到有意地拔下帽246。 Head 240 'may include a receiving groove 241 of the cap 246, shown in Figure 25, the cap 246 and the recess 241 may include an internal lip 247 coincide, so that the cap 246 can be safely and head 240' remains engaged until intentionally pulled Under the cap 246. 帽246优选地由塑料材料制造,可以通过从一个塑料板切下具有合适尺寸的环形的片、 或模制塑料垫圈得到。 Cap 246 is preferably made of plastic material by, may be annular having a suitable size plastic sheet cut from the next sheet, or molded plastic gasket obtained.

近端部分 Proximal part

返回图22、 23,近端218与图l一3所示锚10的近端部分18在下面所述方面类似:近端218包括深螺纹219用于接合干墙1,其中螺纹219具有直径为PR的根部226和直径为PC的脊227。 Returning to Figure 22, 23, the proximal end 218 and a proximal portion of FIG. L 3 of anchor 10 similar to 18 in terms of the following: the proximal end 218 includes a deep thread 219 for engaging drywall 1, wherein the thread has a diameter of 219 PR root diameter of PC 226 and 227 of the ridge. 优选地,螺纹219被设置得通过帮助防止干墙面248鼓包来最小化当锚210被驱入时干墙1的可见形变。 Preferably, the thread 219 is set to go through to help prevent dry wall 248 drum kits to minimize flooding when the anchor 210 is a fashionable drywall visible deformation.

为了帮助防止鼓包,螺纹219的脊径PC可以略微减小,这样当驱动锚210时螺纹219有较少的表面被推入干墙1。 To help prevent drum kits, 219 thread ridge trails PC can be slightly reduced, so that when the drive screw anchor 210 219 have less surface pushed into a drywall. 在图23可以最好地表示的一个实施例中,通过在螺纹219的脊227形成一个基本上平面区域234,而不是如图l一3所述的实施例那样形成实质上成角度的脊27。 By 219 thread ridge 227 is formed a substantially planar region 234, rather than a 3 l of the embodiment as shown in FIG. 27 as a ridge 23 can best be represented by a substantially angled one embodiment, . 所述基本上平面区域234使脊227稍向里变化,这样整个的脊径PC被减小。 The substantially planar region 234 in the ridge 227 slightly changes, so that the entire PC ridge diameter is reduced. 与没有区域234 的情形相比,脊径PC可以被减小约2X到约10%,优选约3%到约7%,在一个实施例中优选为5%。 Compared with the case of no area 234, PC ridge diameter can be reduced from about 2X to about 10%, preferably from about 3% to about 7%, in one embodiment, preferred embodiment is 5%.

在一个实施例中,螺纹219是一般为螺旋状的螺纹219,区域234是一般为螺旋状的带,所述带沿螺纹219的脊227延伸。 In one embodiment, the thread 219 is generally helical thread 219, region 234 is generally helical band, the ridges 219 of the band 227 extends along the thread. 优选地,区域234 —般平行于轴206。 Preferably, the area 234-- generally parallel to the shaft 206. 具有区域234的螺纹219可以通过模制或铸造具有区域234 的锚210得到,或者可以先形成类似于锚10的螺纹19的螺纹219,然后通过锉或其他方式整平螺纹219的脊227。 219 having a threaded region 234 can be produced by molding or casting having a region 234 of anchor 210 obtained, or may be formed similar to the anchor 10 of the screw 19 threads 219, and then flattened by filing or otherwise thread ridge 219 227.

在脊227处提供基本上平面区域234、而不是仅仅制作一个具有较小直径的倾斜的脊是被期望的,因为螺纹219的轴向厚度保持和没有区域234时相同。 Providing a substantially planar region 234 in the ridge 227, instead of just having produced a smaller diameter inclined ridges are desirable because the axial thickness of the thread 219 and 234 is kept the same as when no area. 这一点被期望是因为当锚被驱入干墙1和支撑部件2时,螺纹219给锚本体212提供大量的结构支持,螺纹219越厚,螺纹219就可以给本体212 提供更多支持。 This is expected because when the anchor is driven into 2:00 drywall 1 and support member 219 to the threaded anchor body 212 provide a lot of structural support, the thicker the thread 219, 219 thread can provide more support to the body 212.

区域234的轴向长度LE应该足够大以使螺纹219的脊径PC足够小以防止千墙1鼓包,同时区域234的轴向长度LE还应该足够小以使螺纹219的脊径PC仍然在干墙1中提供足够的接合力并且在驱入干墙1和支撑部件2 时螺纹219仍然提供足够的结构强度。 Regional axial length LE 234 should be large enough to allow the thread ridge 219 of diameter sufficiently small to prevent the thousands of PC wall a bulge, while the axial length of the LE region 234. It should also be small enough so that the diameter of the thread ridge 219 of the PC is still dry wall 1 to provide sufficient engaging force and driven into drywall 1 and support member 2 thread 219 still provide sufficient structural strength. 头240的轴向长度LE可以等于螺纹219的脊径PC的约2X到约10X,优选约4.5%到约6%。 Head 240 may be equal to the axial length of the threaded LE 219 PC ridge diameter from about 2X to about 10X, preferably from about 4.5% to about 6%. 在一个实施例中, 区域234的轴向长度LE等于约0.015英寸到约0.04英寸,优选约0.02英寸到约0.025英寸。 In one embodiment, the axial length of the region 234 of the LE equal to about 0.015 inches to about 0.04 inches, preferably about 0.02 inches to about 0.025 inches.
