Title
(DE) TRAGSTERN FÜR EINE WASCHMASCHINE
(EN) MOUNTING STAR FOR A WASHING MACHINE
(FR) ETOILE DE SUPPORT POUR UN LAVE-LINGE
Abstract
(DE)
Ein Tragstern, der vor allem zur Stabilisierung der und zur drehbaren Montage einer Wäschetrommel (4) einer Waschmaschine vorgesehen ist und mindestens drei im Zentrum (25) des Tragsterns wurzelnde Arme (33 bis 35) aufweist, besteht regelmäßig aus einem hohlen Gusskörper mit kastenförmigem, offenem Profil. Im Abstand von vorzugsweise etwa auf der halben Länge jedes Arms (33 bis 35) sind Stützpunkte (36 bis 41) vorgesehenen, die zur Abstützung gegen die Rückwand (14) der Wäschetrommel (4) dienen. Zur Einsparung von Material und Kosten besteht das offene Profil der Arme (33 bis 35) aus einem Paar von untereinander nicht verbundenen, einem flachen Rechteck wenigstens ähnelnden Flächen, die den Querschnitt von Trägern (27 bis 29) bilden und mit einer ihrer kurzen Seiten zur Rückwand (14) der Wäschetrommel (4) weisen. Die beiden Träger (z. B. 27-1 und 28-2) sind mindestens an den Stützpunkten (z. B. 36, 41) durch je einen dritten Träger (z. B. 44) ähnlicher Querschnittsfläche von Arm 33 zu Arm 35 mit einem Träger (28-2) der anderen Arme (35) verknüpft.
(EN)
The invention relates to a mounting star which is provided in order to stabilise a washing drum (4) and to rotationally mount said washing drum (4) of a washing machine. Said mounting star, which comprises at least three arms (33 35) which are embodied in the centre (25) of the mounting star, is periodically made up of a hollow moulded body with a box-like open profile. Support points (36 31), which are used to support said mounting star against the rear wall (14) of the washing drum (4), are arranged at a distance from, preferably, approximately the mid-length of each arm (33 - 35). The aim of the invention is to reduce material and costs. As a result, the open profile of the arm (33 - 35) is made of a pair of surfaces which are non-connected between themselves and are at least similar to a flat rectangle which forms the transversal section of the supports (27 - 29) and the short sides thereof are oriented towards the rear wall (14) of the washing drum (4). Both of the supports (e.g. 27-1 and 28-2) are connected, at least to the support points (z. B. 36, 41), by means of a third support (e.g. 44) of the identical transversal surface from arm (33) to arm (35), with a support (28-2) of the other arm (35).
(FR)
Etoile de support destinée principalement à permettre la stabilisation d'un tambour de lavage (4) et le montage rotatif dudit tambour d'un lave-linge. Ladite étoile de support, qui possède au moins trois bras (33 à 35) partant du centre (25) de l'étoile, est constituée régulièrement d'un corps creux en fonte à profil ouvert, en forme de boîte. Des points d'appui (36 à 41), qui servent à l'appui de ladite étoile contre la paroi arrière (14) du tambour de lavage (4), sont situés à un certain écart, de préférence environ à mi-longueur de chaque bras (33 à 35). L'objet de la présente invention est d'économiser de la matière et des coûts. A cet effet, le profil ouvert des bras (33 à 35) est constitué d'une paire de surfaces non reliées entre elles et au moins similaires à un rectangle plat qui forment la section transversale de supports (27 à 29) et dont les côtés courts sont orientés vers la paroi arrière (14) du tambour de lavage (4). Les deux supports (par ex. 27-1 et 28-2) sont reliés, au moins au niveau des points d'appui (par ex. 36, 41), par l'intermédiaire d'un troisième support (par ex. 44) de section transversale identique, d'un bras (33) à un autre (35), avec un support (28-2) de l'autre bras (35).
