Title (EN) METHOD OF CONNECTING A TUBE TO A FLANGE
(FR) PROCEDE DE CONNEXION D"UN TUBE SUR UNE BRIDE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method of connecting a tube (12)to a flange (120) including placing the tube between first and second portions (14, 16) of a holding apparatus (10), closing the portions and gripping the tube securely between the portions by operation of a first powered actuator (24), positioning a force-transmitting apparatus (20) including a punch (22) into axial alignment with the tube and the flange and forcing the punch axially into the tube and expanding the tube radially outwardly into interlocking engagement with the flange by operation of a second powered actuator (26) of the force-transmitting apparatus. The portions (14, 16) are preferably pivotally closed to securely grip the tube, and the force-transmitting apparatus (20) is preferably an integrated part of a computer controlled industrial robot (32).
(FR)Procede permettant de connecter un tuyau (12) a un bourrelet (120) consistant a placer le tuyau entre une premiere et une deuxieme parties (14, 16) d"un dispositif de support (10), a fermer les parties en accrochant fermement le tuyau entre les parties par l"action d"un premier dispositif (24) actionne mecaniquement, a positionner un dispositif (20) de transmission de force comprenant un poincon de dilatation (22) dans un alignement axial avec le tuyau et le bourrelet, et a forcer le poincon axialement dans le tuyau et a faire dilater le tuyau radialement vers l"exterieur dans un engagement d"interverrouillage avec le bourrelet par l"action d"un deuxieme dispositif (26) actionne mecaniquement du dispositif de transmission de force. Les parties (14, 16) se ferment de preference en pivotant de maniere a accrocher fermement le tuyau, et le dispositif (20) de transmission de force est de preference une partie integree d"un robot (32) industriel commande par un ordinateur.
