Title
(EN) WAFER HINGE JOINT
(FR) ARTICULATION
Abstract
(EN)
A hinge joint includes a first planar element (10) and a second planar element (12). The first and second planar elements are secured, at a defined offset (50, 51) by several bolts (36). Such offset is proportioned to permit rotation of the end of a third planar element (32) therebetween. The interior surfaces of the first and second planar elements are provided with linear channels (22, 24) within which are placed springs (28) which regulate the angulation and resilience of the third planar element relative to the mutually secured first and second elements. Through the selective use of advancing screws (30, 44), the degree of compression of a spring (28) may be selectably varied to influence the angulation and rotational characteristic of the third planar element relative to the first and second planar element and of the large mechanical parts (56, 58, 60) to which the planar elements are secured.
(FR)
Une articulation comprend un premier élément planaire (10) et un deuxième élément planaire (12). Les premier et deuxième éléments planaires sont fixés, sur un croisement défini (50, 51), à l'aide de plusieurs boulons (36). Ledit croisement est proportionné de manière à permettre la rotation de l'extrémité d'un troisième élément planaire (32) disposé entre lesdits premier et deuxième éléments. Les surfaces des premier et deuxième éléments sont pourvues de canaux linéaires (22, 24) dans lesquels sont placés des ressorts (28). Lesdits ressorts servent à régler l'ajustement angulaire et la résilience du troisième élément planaire par rapport aux premier et deuxième éléments de l'articulation mutuellement fixés. En utilisant sélectivement des vis d'avance (30, 44), on peut faire varier le degré de compression d'un ressort (28) de manière à influencer la caractéristique angulaire et rotative du troisième élément planaire par rapport aux premier et deuxième éléments ainsi que ladite caractéristique angulaire et rotative des pièces mécaniques grosses (56, 58, 60) auxquelles sont fixés lesdits éléments planaires.
