Title
(EN) PRECISION POSITIONING AND FASTENING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE FIXATION ET DE POSITIONNEMENT DE PRECISION
Abstract
(EN)
A locator/fastener has a first outer member with a precision-machined external body portion, a retention head protruding from a first end, and a multi-diameter throughbore. A fastener, which may take the form of a cap screw, floats in the throughbore of the locator with the threaded portion protruding from a second end of the locator. A receiver has an internal precision-machined surface which contacts the precision-machined body portion of the locator and a threaded bore which receives the protruding fastener. By separating the locating and fastening functions, a quick connect disconnect device is created which does not bind or gall. A hangar system allows a sub-base plate to be attached to a base using the locator-fastener disclosed herein.

L'invention concerne un dispositif de localisation/fixation présentant un premier élément extérieur doté d'une partie de corps extérieure ayant subie un usinage de précision, une tête de retenue faisant saillie à partir d'une première extrémité, et un alésage traversant multi-diamètre. L'invention concerne un dispositif de fixation qui peut se présenter sous la forme d'un capuchon vis, ce dispositif flotte dans l'alésage traversant du dispositif de localisation grâce à la partie filetée faisant saillie à partir d'une seconde extrémité du dispositif de localisation. Un récepteur présente une surface intérieure ayant subie un usinage de précision qui est en contact avec la partie de corps ayant subie un usinage de précision du dispositif de localisation et avec un alésage fileté qui reçoit le dispositif de fixation faisant saillie. La séparation des fonctions de localisation et de fixation permet de créer un dispositif de connexion/déconnexion rapide qui ne s'incurve pas, ni ne se grippe. L'invention concerne un système de hangar qui permet à une plaque de sous-base d'être fixée sur une base, à l'aide du dispositif de localisation/fixation.
