Title (EN) JOINT ASSEMBLY WITH CENTERING FLANGE
(FR) ENSEMBLE D’ARTICULATIONS AVEC COLLERETTE DE CENTRAGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides a joint assembly (24) for operatively coupling rotating parts (20, 22). The joint assembly (24) comprises first (26) and second (28) joint members. A plurality of torque-transmitting balls (44) are secured in a cage (46) disposed between the joint members (26, 28). The second joint member (28) is disposed about an axis (70) and includes a centering flange (68) having a first length (L1) for mounting to the second rotating part (22). The centering flange (68) has a contact section (76) configured for being in a substantially interference fit with the second rotating part (22). The contact section (76) has a second length (L2) substantially smaller than the first length (L1) of the centering flange (68) such that the substantially interference fit provides proper alignment between the centering flange (68) and the second rotating part (22) while minimizing forces necessary to mount the centering flange (68) to the second rotating part (22).
(FR)La présente invention concerne un ensemble d’articulation (24) destiné à coupler de façon opérationnelle des pièces rotatives (20, 22). L’ensemble d’articulation (24) comprend des premier (26) et second (28) éléments de garniture. Une pluralité de rotules de transmission de couple (44) sont fixées dans une cage (46) disposée entre les éléments de garniture (26, 28). Le second élément de garniture (28) est placé autour d’un axe (70) et comporte une collerette de centrage (68) ayant une première longueur (L1) destinée à être assemblée sur la seconde pièce rotative (22). La collerette de centrage (68) comprend une section de contact (76) configurée pour s’ajuster de façon sensiblement serrée avec la seconde pièce rotative (22). La section de contact (76) comporte une seconde longueur (L2) sensiblement inférieure à la première longueur (L1) de la collerette de centrage (68) de sorte que l’ajustement sensiblement serré assure l’alignement approprié entre la collerette de centrage (68) et la seconde partie rotative (22) tout en réduisant les forces nécessaires au montage de la collerette de centrage (68) sur la seconde pièce rotative (22).
