Title (EN) TILT CYLINDER SUPPORT STRUCTURE
(FR) STRUCTURE DE SUPPORT DE VÉRIN D'INCLINAISON FRONTALE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A support structure for a tilt cylinder of a machine that controls movement of an articulating implement may include a mounting plate, vertical support plates extending outwardly from a top surface of the mounting plate, and a central and side gussets connected to the top surface of the mounting plate and to the outer sides of the vertical support plates. The gussets assist in transitioning lateral or horizontal forces on the vertical support plates to the mounting plate and the end frame of the machine to reduce fatigue cracking at the points of connection of the vertical support plates to the mounting plate. The support structure may further include first and second lower support plates having top edges spaced from each other and connected to the bottom surface of the mounting plate, and bottom edges connected to each other so that the lower support plates and the mounting plate form a triangle in cross-section to further assist in transitioning the forces to the end frame.
(FR)L'invention porte sur une structure de support pour un vérin d'inclinaison frontale d'une machine qui commande le mouvement d'un accessoire d'articulation qui peut comprendre une plaque de montage, des plaques de support verticales s'étendant vers l'extérieur à partir d'une surface supérieure de la plaque de montage, et des goussets central et latéral reliés à la surface supérieure de la plaque de montage et aux côtés externes des plaques de support verticales. Les goussets aident à transférer des forces latérales ou horizontales sur les plaques de support verticales vers la plaque de montage et le bâti d'extrémité de la machine afin de réduire la fissuration par fatigue aux points de liaison des plaques de support verticales à la plaque de montage. La structure de support peut en outre comprendre des première et seconde plaques de support inférieures ayant des bords supérieurs espacés les uns des autres et reliés à la surface inférieure de la plaque de montage, et des bords inférieurs reliés entre eux de telle sorte que les plaques de support inférieures et la plaque de montage forment un triangle en coupe transversale pour aider davantage à transférer les forces vers le bâti d'extrémité.
