Title
(EN) COUPLING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME D’ACCOUPLEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
A plurality of similarly configured coupling component assemblies is provided. Each assembly includes a first coil spring and a second coil spring. Each coil spring is positioned in a hole. Each coil spring has an interior end of a reduced diameter with a fastener attaching the spring to the hole. Each coil spring has an exterior end extending a short distance outside of the hole. The exterior ends of adjacent opposing coil springs are adapted to interlock and join associated components of the system when rotated with respect to each other about a common axis of rotation. The coupling components also include a cylindrical rod with opposed ends within the opposing coil springs. Each rod has an axial length greater than the length of each coil spring and less than the axial length of two holes.
(FR)
L’invention concerne une pluralité d’ensembles de composants d’accouplement configurés de manière similaire. Chaque ensemble comprend un premier ressort hélicoïdal et un second ressort hélicoïdal. Chaque ressort hélicoïdal est positionné dans un trou. Chaque ressort hélicoïdal présente une extrémité intérieure de diamètre réduit avec un dispositif de fixation fixant le ressort au trou. Chaque ressort hélicoïdal présente une extrémité extérieure s’étendant sur une courte distance à l’extérieur du trou. Les extrémités extérieures de ressorts hélicoïdaux opposés adjacents sont conçues pour verrouiller et assembler des composants associés du système, lors de leur rotation les uns par rapport aux autres autour d’un axe commun de rotation. Les composants d’accouplement comprennent également une tige cylindrique munie d’extrémités opposées à l’intérieur des ressorts hélicoïdaux opposés. Chaque tige présente une longueur axiale supérieure à la longueur de chaque ressort hélicoïdal et inférieure à la longueur axiale des deux trous.
