Title
(EN) COMPACT CARGO LIFT FOR COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT
(FR) ÉLÉVATEUR DE FRET COMPACT POUR AVION COMMERCIAL
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus (12) for transferring cargo (14) between an upper (18), passenger deck and a lower (16), cargo deck of an aircraft (10). A lift platform raises (30) palletized cargo from the lower deck through an opening (38) formed in the upper deck. The drive mechanism (62) is housed entirely within the lift platform itself. The platform is stabilized by flanking, scissors - action leg assemblies (80), that nest alongside the platform when stowed. The platform is stowed in the raised position, within the opening formed in the upper deck. Locking assemblies (50) attach the lift platform to the sides of the opening so that the platform becomes a load-bearing structural component of the upper deck when stowed. A recess (32) is formed in the lower deck for receiving the lift platform when lowered. A translating floor assembly (294) having folding floor sections (296 a-e) lowers to clear the recess, and then raises to define a floor surface over the opening when the lift platform is not in use.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un appareil (12) pour transférer un fret (14) entre un pont de passagers supérieur (18) et un pont de fret inférieur (16) d'un avion (10). Une plateforme de levage soulève (30) un fret palettisé à partir du pont inférieur à travers une ouverture (38) formée dans le pont supérieur. Le mécanisme d'entraînement (62) est entièrement renfermé à l'intérieur de la plateforme de levage elle-même. La plateforme est stabilisée par des ensembles de pattes de flanc à action en ciseaux (80), qui sont logés le long de la plateforme lorsqu'elle est stockée. La plateforme est stockée dans la position élevée, à l'intérieur de l'ouverture formée dans le pont supérieur. Des ensembles de verrouillage (50) attachent la plateforme de levage aux côtés de l'ouverture, de sorte que la plateforme devienne un composant structurel de support de charge du pont supérieur lorsqu'elle est stockée. Un creux (32) est formé dans le pont inférieur pour recevoir la plateforme de levage lorsqu'elle est abaissée. Un ensemble plancher de translation (294) ayant des sections de plancher pliantes (296 a-e) s'abaisse de façon à libérer le creux, puis s'élève de façon à définir une surface de plancher au-dessus de l'ouverture lorsque la plateforme de levage n'est pas en utilisation.
