Title (EN) TRACK JOINT AND METHOD OF ASSEMBLING SAME
(FR) ARTICULATION DE CHENILLE ET SON PROCEDE D'ASSEMBLAGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A track joint (10) is provided with a controlled running clearance means of a controlled interstice producing membrane (60) placed between the opposing axial thrust surfaces (26, 28; 52, 58) of the joint (10). The membrane (60) is of a substance which sacrifically self-destructs upon the initial pivotal movements of the joint (10). The purpose of the membrane (60) is to relieve the joint (10) of compressive loads which become locked in the joint (10) during its assembly and can cause galling of the thrust surfaces (26, 28; 52, 58) and injury to track seals (42) in the joint (10).
(FR)Une articulation (10) de chenille est pourvue d'un dispositif de réglage de l'écart de roulement sous la forme d'une membrane (60) créant un interstice réglable placée entre les surfaces opposées de poussée axiale (26, 28; 52, 58) de l'articulation (10). La membrane (60) est faite en une substance qui s'auto-détruit et s'élimine lors des mouvements pivotants initiaux de l'articulation (10). Le but de la membrane (60) est de soulager l'articulation (10) des charges de compression susceptibles de bloquer l'articulation (10) pendant son assemblage et qui peuvent provoquer le grippage des surfaces de poussée (26, 28; 52, 58) et des dommages aux joints d'étanchéité (42) de l'articulation (10) de la chenille.
