Title
(EN) MOUNTING MECHANISM FOR A PLAYFIELD OF A PINBALL MACHINE
(FR) MECANISME DE MONTAGE POUR TERRAIN DE JEU D'UN BILLARD ELECTRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A pinball machine includes a cabinet (22) to which the playfield (23) is mounted. The cabinet includes slide rails (96) having notches (158) for mating with corresponding pieces of the playfield thereby permitting easy rotation of the playfield within the cabinet during servicing or game conversion. Thus, the electronics and mechanical components below the playfield can be readily accessed.
(FR)
L'invention se rapporte à un billard électrique comportant un caisson (22) dans lequel le terrain de jeu (23) est monté. Ledit caisson comporte des rails latéraux (96) présentant des encoches (158) conçues pour s'accoupler à des parties correspondantes du terrain de jeu. Cette structure facilite la rotation du terrain de jeu à l'intérieur du caisson lors de l'entretien ou de la transformation du jeu. Elle permet notamment un accès facile aux composants électroniques et mécaniques situés sous le terrain de jeu.
