Title (EN) A COUPLING ASSEMBLY FOR THE RELEASABLE INTERCONNECTION OF A DRIVING AND A DRIVEN UNIT IN A TRANSPORT SYSTEM
(FR) ENSEMBLE D"ACCOUPLEMENT POUR LA LIAISON AMOVIBLE D"UN ELEMENT D"ENTRAINEMENT ET D"UN ELEMENT ENTRAINE DANS UN SYSTEME DE TRANSPORT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A coupling assembly for the releasable coupling of a driving and a driven unit in a transport system, preferably of the type in which the driving unit is a self-propelled carriage on an overhead rail member, said carriage having a downwardly extending coupling rod (7) which via a coupling assembly (8) can be coupled to transport carriage on which a bracket (9) with a coupling pin (10) is secured. The coupling assembly is characterized in that it allows a certain lateral mobility in all directions when the coupling assembly (8) transmits tractive forces, and provides for a completely rigid coupling when the coupling assembly (8) transmits compressive forces. The rigid coupling is obtained because on the coupling pin (10) an in an opening for receiving the coupling pin (10) in a coupling pipe (11) there are provided cooperating engagements faces (14, 23 and 16, 24) which define two engagement areas which are sufficiently axially spaced to absorb a certain torque. When the coupling assembly (8) transmits tractive forces said mobility is obtained by provision of cooperating locking means (18, 19) for securing the coupling pin (10) in the coupling pipe (11) in a locking position in which said cooperating engagement faces are spaced.
(FR)Un ensemble d"accouplement pour la liaison amovible d"un element d"entrainement et d"un element entraine dans un systeme de transport, de preference du type dans lequel l"element d"entrainement est un chariot autopropulse sur un rail suspendu, ce chariot possedant une barre d"accouplement (7) s"etendant vers le bas qui peut etre accouplee a l"aide d"un ensemble d"accouplement (8) a un chariot de transport sur lequel est fixe une equerre (9) pourvue d"une goupille d"assemblage (10). L"ensemble d"accouplement est caracterise par le fait qu"il permet une certaine mobilite laterale dans toutes les directions lorsque l"ensemble d"accouplements (8) transmet des forces de traction, et qu"il assure un accouplement totalement rigide lorsqu"il transmet des forces de compression. L"accouplement rigide est obtenu grace a la goupille d"accouplement (10), et dans une ouverture permettant de recevoir la goupille (10) dans un tube d"accouplement (11) sont prevues des faces d"engagement (14, 23 et 16, 24) qui definissent deux regions d"engagement qui sont espacees axialement de facon suffisante pour absorber un certain couple. Lorsque l"ensemble d"accouplement (8) transmet les forces de traction ladite mobilite est obtenue par des moyens de verrouillage (18, 19) permettant d"assujettir la goupille (10) dans le tube d"accouplement (11) dans une position de verrouillage dans laquelle lesdites faces d"engagement sont ecartees.
