Abstract: front page image
(EN)An articulating joint apparatus includes a first rotational member having an axis, a second rotational member coupled with and positioned generally coaxial to the first rotational member, and a boot cover assembly for sealing at least part of the first rotational member to the second rotational member. The boot cover assembly is selectively coupled to both the first rotational member and the second rotational member. The joint apparatus also includes an insert positioned at least partially between the first rotational member and the second rotational member. The insert will deform in response to axial movement of the second rotational member relative to the first rotational member.
(FR)Un appareil à joints d'articulation comporte un premier organe rotatif ayant un axe, un second organe rotatif couplé avec et positionné généralement coaxial au premier organe rotatif, et un ensemble de couvercle de coffre pour sceller au moins une partie du premier organe rotatif sur le second organe rotatif. L'ensemble de couvercle de coffre est couplé de manière sélective à la fois au premier organe rotatif et au second organe rotatif. L'appareil à joints comporte également un insert positionné au moins en partie entre le premier organe rotatif et le second organe rotatif. L'insert va se déformer en réaction à un déplacement axial du second organe rotatif par rapport au premier organe rotatif.
