      Hereinafter, the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device, the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive with the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device, and the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive provided by the embodiments of the present disclosure will be illustrated in conjunction with the drawings.

Embodiment One

      This embodiment provides a liquid photocurable adhesive coating device, the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device comprising a coating head101 and a precuring light source 102. The coating head 101 is used for coating liquid photocurable adhesive 202; the precuring light source 102 is fixed onto the coating head 101 and is configured to precure the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 coated by the coating head 101 while the coating head 101 is coating the liquid photocurable adhesive 202.
      As shown in FIG. 1, the precuring light source 102 is fixed onto the coating head 101, and the coating head 101 can coat the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 onto a substrate to be coated 201; the precuring light source 102 may emit curing light to precure the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 coated by the coating head 101 on the substrate to be coated 201 and deprive it of flowability, so that the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 coated on the curved surface no longer flows, so that coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on the curved surface can be implemented. It should be noted that, the above-described precuring light source 102 does not completely cure the liquid photocurable adhesive 202, but only cures the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 to an extent to deprive it of flowability. In addition, the above-described curved surface includes, but is not limited to, an arc-shaped surface, but may also include other curved surface, for example, a folded surface.
      For example, the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 may be liquid optical adhesive, photoresist, and the like.
      For example, the substrate to be coated 201 may be a cover plate of a display screen.
      In the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in this embodiment, by combination of the coating head and the precuring light source together, it is possible to simultaneously performing coating the liquid photocurable adhesive and precuring, so that the liquid photocurable adhesive coated on the curved surface no longer flows, so that coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on the curved surface can be implemented. In addition, by keeping a distance of the coating head with respect to the substrate to be coated and a coating velocity to be consistent, a curing rate of the liquid photocurable adhesive coated on the substrate to be coated may be kept consistent, so as to form a liquid photocurable adhesive layer with a uniform thickness. It should be noted that, the above-described coating velocity refers to a moving velocity of the coating head with respect to the substrate to be coated.
      For example, in the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, as shown in FIG. 1, the precuring light source 102 is configured to emit parallel curing light. Because the precuring light source 102 emits the parallel curing light, a size of the parallel curing light emitted by the precuring light source 102 within a plane parallel to the substrate to be coated 201 may be adjusted according to needs, so as to irradiate only to-be-precured liquid photocurable adhesive 202, without affecting liquid photocurable adhesive 202 in other position of the substrate to be coated 201. It should be noted that, the above-described parallel curing light is defined with respect to diverging light, and includes, but is not limited to, strictly parallel light, and may also include parallel light within a certain error range.
      For example, in the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, as shown in FIG. 1, a light emergent direction of the precuring light source 101 coincides with an outflow direction of the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 in the coating head 102. Thus, since the precuring light source 102 is fixed on the coating head 101 and the light emergent direction of the precuring light source 101 coincides with the outflow direction of the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 in the coating head 102, the precuring light source 102 may be move along with the coating head 101, so as to precure the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 coated by the coating head 101 in time. Of course, this embodiment includes, but is not limited thereto. The precuring light source may also not be fixed on the coating head, for example, the precuring light source may be provided separately; in this case, the precuring light source precuring the liquid photocurable adhesive may be performed simultaneously with the coating head 102 coating the liquid photocurable adhesive by adjusting its own position and a light emergent angle. That is, when the coating head is coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on the substrate to be coated, by adjusting the position and the light emergent angle of the precuring light source, light spot projected by the precuring light source on the substrate to be coated may move along with the coating head, so as to timely deprive the photocurable adhesive coated on the substrate to be coated of flowability, so that the liquid photocurable adhesive coated on the curved surface no longer flows, and the liquid photocurable adhesive layer with the uniform thickness can be formed. As compared with the above-described case, the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in the example has a simpler structure, and does not require separate control of the position and the angle of the precuring light source.
      For example, in the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, as shown in FIG. 1, the precuring light source 102 is provided on an outer surface of the coating head 101. Thus, after the coating head 101 coats the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 on the substrate to be coated 201, the precuring light source 102 can rapidly precure the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 and deprive it of flowability, to ensure that it does not flow on the substrate to be coated 201, so as to avoid the problem of nonuniform thickness of the liquid optical adhesive.
      For example, in the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, as shown in FIG. 1 the coating head 101includes a liquid photocurable adhesive channel 1010, and the precuring light source 102 is provided in a position on the outer surface of the coating head101 closest to the liquid photocurable adhesive channel 1010. That is, when the coating head 101 includes the liquid photocurable adhesive channel 1010and the liquid photocurable adhesive channel 1010 is provided in a non-center position of the coating head 101, for example, as shown in FIG. 1, the liquid photocurable adhesive channel 1010 is provided at a position close to one side of the outer surface of the coating head 101. In this case, the precuring light source 102 may be correspondingly provided in a position of the outer surface of the one side of the coating head 101 closest to the liquid photocurable adhesive channel 1010, that is, a position where a distance between the outer surface of the coating head 101 and a surface of the liquid photocurable adhesive channel 1010 is the smallest. Thus, a precuring velocity of the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 by the precuring light source 102 may be further improved, after the coating head 101 coats the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 on the substrate to be coated 201; That is, after the coating head 101 coats the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 on the substrate to be coated 201, the precuring light source 102 may immediately precure the coated liquid photocurable adhesive 202, so as to further prevent the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 from flowing on the substrate to be coated 201. It should be noted that, the liquid photocurable adhesive channel is a channel for the liquid photocurable adhesive in the coating head to flow out.
      For example, in the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, the precuring light source 102 includes a laser emitter. Thus, the precuring light source 102 may emit parallel curing light.
      For example, in the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, as shown in FIG. 1, the precuring light source 102 includes a curing lamp 1020 and a light-shielding plate 1021, the light-shielding plate 1021 wraps the curing lamp 1020 so that the precuring light source 102 emits parallel curing light. It should be noted that, a length of the light-shielding plate 1021 in the light emergent direction of the precuring light source 102 may be larger than a length of the curing lamp 1020, so as to improve parallelism of the parallel curing light emitted by the precuring light source102. In addition, the above-described “wrap” is not limited to fully wrap, and may also include half wrap. For example, a side of the curing lamp 1020 close to the coating head 101 may be shielded with the coating head 101, without additional formation of the light-shielding plate 1021.
      For example, in the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, as shown in FIG. 1, a side of the light-shielding plate 1021 close to the curing lamp 1020 is provided with a reflective film 1022. It should be noted that, when a side of the light-shielding plate1021 close to the curing lamp 1020 is provided with the reflective film 1022, the reflective film 1022 may reflect light in directions other than the light emergent direction of the precuring light source 102 emitted by the curing lamp 1020, so that light is emitted in the light emergent direction of the precuring light source 102, so as to improve utilization efficiency of light emitted by the curing lamp 1020.
      For example, in the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, the curing lamp 1020 is an LED curing lamp.
      For example, in the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, the precuring light source 102 and the coating head 101 may be integrally formed. For example, as shown in FIG. 2, the precuring light source 102 is formed inside the coating head 101. It should be noted that, when the precuring light source 102 is formed inside the coating head 101, in order to improve the utilization efficiency of light emitted by the precuring light source 102, an inner wall of the coating head 101 wrapping the precuring light source 102 may be provided with a reflective film as well.
      For example, as shown in FIG. 3, the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment further includes: a coating head moving mechanism 103, connected with the coating head 101 and including a rotating mechanism 1030 configured to rotate the coating head 101. The coating head moving mechanism 103 is used for moving the coating head 101, so as to coat the liquid photocurable adhesive onto various substrate to be coated. The rotating mechanism 1030 may mobilize the coating head 101 to perform coating on the curved surface.
      For example, as shown in FIG. 4 to FIG. 6, in the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, the coating head moving mechanism 103 further includes: a first propelling mechanism 1031 configured to make the coating head 101 to move in a first direction; and a second propelling mechanism 1032 configured to make the coating head 101 to move in a second direction.
      For example, as shown in FIG. 4 to FIG. 6, in the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, the first propelling mechanism 1031 is connected with the rotating mechanism 1030, the first propelling mechanism 1031 makes the coating head 101 to move in the first direction by moving the rotating mechanism 1030; the second propelling mechanism 1032 is connected with the first propelling mechanism 1031, and the second propelling mechanism 1032 makes the coating head 101 to move in the second direction by move the first propelling mechanism 1031. Of course, this embodiment includes, but is not limited to, the above-described connection mode, for example, the second propelling mechanism 1032 may also be connected with the rotating mechanism 1030, and the second propelling mechanism 1032 makes the coating head 101 to move in the second direction by moving the rotating mechanism 1030; the first propelling mechanism 1031 may also be connected with the second propelling mechanism 1032, and the first propelling mechanism 1031 makes the coating head 101 to move in the first direction by moving the second propelling mechanism 1032.
      For example, as shown in FIG. 4 to FIG. 6, in the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, the rotating mechanism 1030 is configured to rotate about an axis perpendicular to a plane formed by the first direction and the second direction. Thus, the rotating mechanism 1030 can drive the coating head 101 to rotate in the plane formed by the first direction and the second direction.
      For example, as shown in FIG. 7, in the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, a size L 1 of a light outlet 1023 of the precuring light source 102 in a direction perpendicular to the plane where the first direction and the second direction are located is equal to a size L 2 of an adhesive outlet 1023 of the coating head 101 in the direction perpendicular to the plane where the first direction and the second direction are located. Thus, the precuring light source 102 may exactly cure the liquid photocurable adhesive coated by the coating head 101. It should be noted that, this embodiment includes, but is not limited thereto, for example, when the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in this embodiment is used for coating a linear liquid photocurable adhesive pattern, the size of the light outlet of the precuring light source in the direction perpendicular to the plane where the first direction and the second direction are located may also be larger than the size of the adhesive outlet of the coating head in the direction perpendicular to the plane where the first direction and the second direction are located.
      For example, as shown in FIG. 4 to FIG. 6, in the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, the first propelling mechanism 1031 includes a firs-direction lead screw; and the second propelling mechanism 1032 includes a second-direction lead screw. As a result, the first propelling mechanism 1031 and the second propelling mechanism 1032 may move accurately. Of course, this embodiment includes, but is not limited thereto, the first propelling mechanism may include a first-direction slide rail, and the second propelling mechanism may include a second-direction slide rail.
      For example, the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment further comprises a curing light source, for thoroughly curing the liquid photocurable adhesive coated on the substrate to be coated.

Embodiment Two

      This embodiment provides a method for coating liquid photocurable adhesive with a liquid photocurable adhesive coating device, as shown in FIG. 1, the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device comprising a coating head 101 configured to coat the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 on a substrate to be coated 201 and a precuring light source 102 fixed on the coating head 101 and configured to precure the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 coated by the coating head 101 while the coating head 101 is coating the liquid photocurable adhesive 202. The method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive with the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device comprises steps 110 to 120 as follows:
      Step 110: coating the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 on the substrate to be coated 201 with the coating head 101.
      For example, the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 may be liquid optical adhesive, photoresist, and the like.
      For example, the substrate to be coated 201 may be a cover plate of a display screen.
      Step 120: precuring the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 with the precuring light source 102, so as to deprive the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 of flowability.
      It should be noted that, the above-described precuring the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 with the precuring light source 102 is not completely curing the liquid photocurable adhesive 202, but only curing the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 to an extent to deprive it of flowability.
      In the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive with the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in this embodiment, the coating head 101 can coat the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 on the substrate to be coated 201; the precuring light source 102 can emit curing light to precure the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 coated by the coating head 101 on the substrate to be coated 201, to deprive it of flowability, so that the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 coated on the curved surface no longer flows, and coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on the curved surface can be implemented.
      For example, in the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive with the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, the coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on the substrate to be coated with the coating head and the precuring the liquid photocurable adhesive with the precuring light source so as to deprive the liquid photocurable adhesive of flowability are performed simultaneously. Thus, after the coating head coats the liquid photocurable adhesive on the substrate to be coated, the precuring light source can immediately precure the liquid photocurable adhesive and deprive it of flowability, to ensure that it does not flow on the substrate to be coated, so as to avoid a problem of nonuniform thickness of the liquid optical adhesive.
      For example, in the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive with the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, as shown in FIG. 1, the substrate to be coated 201 includes a curved surface.
      For example, the substrate to be coated 201 may be a cover plate of a curved display screen.
      In the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive with the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in this embodiment, since the precuring light source 102 can emit curing light to precure the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 coated by the coating head 101 on the substrate to be coated 201 to deprive it of flowability, the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 will not flow on the curved surface due to gravity, so that it is possible to implement coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on the curved surface.
      For example, in the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive with the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, as shown in FIG. 4 to FIG. 6, the precuring light source 102 is fixed on the coating head 101, and a light emergent direction of the precuring light source 102 coincides with an outflow direction of the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 in the coating head 102; the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device further includes: a coating head moving mechanism 103, the coating head moving mechanism 103 being connected with the coating head 101 and including a rotating mechanism 1030 configured to rotate the coating head 101; in a procedure of coating the liquid photocurable adhesive 202 on the substrate to be coated 201 with the coating head 101, the coating head moving mechanism 103 is used so that a coating velocity of the coating head 101 with respect to a coated surface 2010 of the substrate to be coated 201 is constent. Thus, the coating head 101 can form a liquid photocurable adhesive layer with a uniform thickness on the substrate to be coated 201. In addition, because the precuring light source can precure the liquid photocurable adhesive and deprive it of flowability, a liquid photocurable adhesive layer with a uniform thickness can be coated on the curved surface. It should be noted that, the above-described coating velocity refers to a moving velocity of the coating head with respect to the coated surface of the substrate to be coated, in a procedure of the coating head coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on the substrate to be coated.
      For example, in the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive with the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, as shown in FIG. 4 to FIG. 6, the coating head moving mechanism 103 further includes: a first propelling mechanism 1031 and a second propelling mechanism 1032; the first propelling mechanism 1031 being configured to make the coating head 101 to move in a first direction; and the second propelling mechanism 1032 being configured to make the coating head 101 to move in a second direction. In a procedure of coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on the substrate to be coated including the curved surface with the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device, the curved surface of the substrate to be coated can be regaded as a combination of a plurality of curved sub-surfaces with different curvatures. As shown in FIG. 8, with a curved sub-surface with a curvature r as an example, the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive with the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device further comprises steps 210 to 230 as follows:
      Step 210: determining a coating velocity V of the coating head 101 with respect to the coated surface 2010 of the substrate to be coated 201.
      It should be noted that, the above-described coating velocity V may be determined according to the thickness of the liquid photocurable adhesive to be coated on the substrate to be coated. For example, when it is necessary to coat a thicker liquid photocurable adhesive, the coating velocity V may be set to be larger, and when it is necessary to coat a thinner liquid photocurable adhesive, the coating velocity V may be set to be smaller; and this embodiment includes, but is not limited thereto.
      For example, when it is necessary to coat a thicker liquid photocurable adhesive, the coating velocity V may be set to be larger, and when it is necessary to coat a thinner liquid photocurable adhesive, the coating velocity V may be set to be smaller; and this embodiment includes, but is not limited thereto.
      Step 220: determining an angular velocity ω of the rotating mechanism 1030 according to a distance d from a coating end point of the coating head 101to the coated surface 2010 of the substrate to be coated 201, the curvature r of the curved sub-surface and the coating velocity V.
      For example, FIG. 8is a path schematic diagram when the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device in FIG. 8is coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on the curved sub-surface with the curvature r. As shown in FIG. 8, the coating head of the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device is perpendicular to the curved sub-surface with the curvature r, and the distance d from the coating end point of the coating head of the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device to the coated surface of the curved sub-surface with the curvature r is kept constant; because the coating velocity of the coating head with respect to the coated surface of the substrate to be coated is determined as V, the angular velocity ω of the rotating mechanism is equal to the coating velocity of the coating head with respect to the coated surface of the substrate to be coated, which is determined as V, divided by a difference between the curvature r of the curved sub-surface and the distance d from the coating end point of the coating head to the coated surface of the curved sub-surface with the curvature r, that is:

      Step 230: as shown in FIG. 8, determining velocities v 1 and v 2 of the first propelling mechanism and the second propelling mechanism, according to component velocities Vx and Vy of the coating velocity V in the first direction and the second direction, the distance d from the coating end point of the coating head to the coated surface of the substrate to be coated, a distance R from an axis of the rotating mechanism to the coating end point of the coating head, and the curvature r of the curved sub-surface, so that the coating velocity of the coating head with respect to the coated surface of the substrate to be coated is kept constant.
      For example, as shown in FIG. 8, the coating head is perpendicular to the curved surface with curvature r and the distance d from the coating end point of the coating head to the coated surface of the curved sub-surface with the curvature r is kept constant; the coating velocity of the coating head with respect to the coated surface of the substrate to be coated is determined as V, the distance from the axis of the rotating mechanism to the coating end point of the coating head is R, and therefore, a velocity component V 1, in the first direction, of a velocity V′ at the axis of the rotating mechanism, i.e., the velocity of the first propelling mechanism, and a component velocity V 2 of the velocity V′ at the axis of the rotating mechanism in the second direction, i.e., the velocity of the second propelling mechanism, satisfy a formula as follows:

      For example, in the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive with the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, in a procedure of coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on the substrate to be coated with the coating head, the coating head moving mechanism is used so that the outflow direction of the liquid photocurable adhesive is perpendicular to the coated surface of the substrate to be coated.
      For example, in the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive with the liquid photocurable adhesive coating device provided in an example of this embodiment, in the procedure of coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on the substrate to be coated with the coating head, the coating head moving mechanism is used so that the distance between the coating head and the coated surface of the substrate to be coated is kept constant.

Embodiment Three

      This embodiment provides a method for coating liquid photocurable adhesive, comprising steps 310 to 320 as follows:
      Step 310: coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on a substrate to be coated.
      For example, the liquid photocurable adhesive may be liquid optical adhesive, photoresist, and the like.
      For example, the substrate to be coated may be a cover plate of a display screen.
      Step 320: precuring the liquid photocurable adhesive, so as to deprive the liquid photocurable adhesive of flowability, the coating the liquid photocurable adhesive onto the substrate to be coated and the precuring the liquid photocurable adhesive so as to deprive the liquid photocurable adhesive of flowability being performed simultaneously.
      It should be noted that, the above-described precuring the liquid photocurable adhesive is not completely curing the liquid photocurable adhesive, but only curing the liquid photocurable adhesive to an extent to deprive it of flowability.
      In the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive provided in this embodiment, the liquid photocurable adhesive coated on the substrate to be coated may be precured so as to deprive it of flowability, so that the liquid photocurable adhesive coated on the curved surface no longer flows, and coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on the curved surface can be implemented. After the liquid photocurable adhesive is coated on the substrate to be coated, the liquid photocurable adhesive may be immediately precured so as to deprive it of flowability, to ensure that it does not flow on the substrate to be coated, so as to avoid a problem of nonuniform thickness of the liquid optical adhesive.
      For example, in the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive provided in this embodiment, the substrate to be coated includes a curved surface.
      For example, the substrate to-be-coated may be a cover plate of a curved display screen.
      In the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive provided in this embodiment, since the liquid photocurable adhesive coated on the substrate to be coated may be precured so as to deprive it of flowability, the liquid photocurable adhesive will not flow on the curved surface due to gravity, so that it is possible to implement coating liquid photocurable adhesive on the curved surface.
      For example, in the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive provided in an example of this embodiment, in a procedure of coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on the substrate to be coated, the coating velocity is kept constant. Thus, a liquid photocurable adhesive layer with a uniform thickness can be formed on the substrate to be coated.
      For example, in the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive provided in an example of this embodiment, in the procedure of coating the liquid photocurable adhesive on the substrate to be coated, the outflow direction of the liquid photocurable adhesive is perpendicular to the coated surface of the substrate to be coated.
      For example, in the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive provided in an example of this embodiment, the thickness of the liquid photocurable adhesive coated on the substrate to be coated may be controlled by controlling a coating velocity and a coating air pressure. For example, when the coating air pressure is constant, and when the to-be-coated thickness is larger, the coating velocity is set to be smaller; on the contrary, when the to-be-coated thickness is smaller, the coating velocity is set to be larger. For example, when the coating velocity is constant, and when the to-be-coated thickness is larger, the coating air pressure is set to be larger; on the contrary, when the to-be-coated thickness is smaller, the coating air pressure is set to be smaller.
      For example, the method for coating the liquid photocurable adhesive provided in an example of this embodiment further includes: thoroughly curing the liquid photocurable adhesive coated on the substrate to be coated. For example, the substrate to be coated may be the cover plate of the curved display screen, and after the liquid photocurable adhesive is coated on the cover plate of the curved display screen, the cover plate of the curved display screen coated with the liquid photocurable adhesive is bonded to the curved display screen; and then the liquid photocurable adhesive coated on the cover plate of the curved display screen is thoroughly cured.
