Title (EN) FLEXIBLE SHOE ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE SABOT SOUPLE
Abstract:
(EN) The technical field of the invention broadly relates to molding systems, and more particularly to a flexible shoe assembly for use in a molding system. The clamp unit of a molding system includes a moving platen and a stationary platen supported by a frame. Tie bars interconnect the moving platen with the stationary platen. The tie bars are secured to the stationary platen and pass through respective openings in the moving platen. Each tie bar is supported and guided within their respective openings by a flexible shoe assembly and wear pad. The flexible shoe assembly has a force redirector for directing force away from a peripheral edge of the wear pad towards a central force area. The flexible shoe assembly also includes a load distributor to distribute the load across the wear pad surface. The flexible shoe assembly includes an upper support that is flexible about a lower support to keep the wear pad in operational contact with the tie bar.
(FR) Le domaine technique de l'invention concerne d'une manière générale les systèmes de moulage, et plus particulièrement un ensemble sabot souple s'utilisant dans un système de moulage. L'unité de préhension d'un système de moulage comprend une plaque mobile et une plaque stationnaire soutenue par un cadre. Des colonnes relient entre elles la plaque mobile et la plaque stationnaire. Ces colonnes sont fixées à la plaque stationnaire et traversent des ouvertures respectives situées dans la plaque mobile. Chaque colonne est soutenue et guidée au sein de ses ouvertures respectives par un ensemble sabot souple et un patin d'usure. L'ensemble sabot souple possède un dispositif de redirection de forces permettant de rediriger une force loin d'un bord périphérique du patin d'usure vers une zone de force centrale. L'ensemble sabot souple comprend également un distributeur de charge servant à distribuer la charge sur l'ensemble de la surface du patin d'usure. L'ensemble sabot souple comprend un support supérieur souple autour d'un support inférieur afin de maintenir le patin d'usure en contact de fonctionnement avec la colonne.
