(FR) CHARNIERE ELASTIQUE POUR LUNETTES
Abstract
(EN)
An elastic hinge for eyeglasses comprising, at the end of a temple (10), an elongated hollow body (11) with a flat end (12), the body (11) containing an elastic element (14) which is arranged between the head (17) of a pivot (16) passing through the body axially and a contrast element (18) retained therein, the pivot (16) passing through the contrast element (18) and engaging a first hinge element (22) whereto a second hinge element (25) is pivoted, the second hinge element (25) being fixed to the eyeglasses front (26) and having a polygonal profile, one side whereof rests on the flat end (12) of the hollow body (11). The contrast element (18) is retained in the hollow body (11) by means of a transverse pin (29), the pin (29) passing through the first hinge element (22) in a hollowed-out region (31) thereof so as to not interfere with its movements.
(FR)
Cette charnière élastique pour lunettes comprend, au niveau de l'extrémité d'une branche (10), un corps creux (11) de forme allongée, lequel est pourvu d'une extrémité plate (12) et contient un élément élastique (14) disposé entre la tête (17) d'un pivot (16) traversant axialement ledit corps et une pièce placée en opposition (18) et retenue dans ledit corps, le pivot (16) traversant également cette pièce (18) pour entrer en contact avec un premier élément (22) de la charnière et faire pivoter un second élément de charnière (25), lequel est fixé sur la partie antérieure (26) des lunettes et possède un profil polygonal dont un côté repose sur l'extrémité plate (12) du corps creux (11). Ladite pièce (18) est retenue dans le corps creux (11) au moyen d'une broche transversale (29), laquelle passe à travers le premier élément (22) de charnière dans une région alésée (31) de celui-ci, de façon à ne pas gêner les mouvements de cet élément.
