Title
(EN) LOW-FORCE ROLLING TRIGGER
(FR) GÂCHETTE ROULANTE À FAIBLE FORCE
Abstract
(EN)
In an embodiment, a low-force, low-friction, short-travel, low-energy control rolling trigger utilizes a rolling element as a trigger-release mechanism in equipment, machines and tools such as for clutches, brakes, actuators, and projectile launchers. The rolling elements within the trigger mechanism reduce the friction, which in-turn reduces the force necessary to discharge trigger. In an embodiment, the trigger is part of a firearm and uses a mechanical trigger. In another embodiment, the trigger is activated by an electronic signal that activates a solenoid, which pulls the rolling element, and thereby releases the striker or in a trigger-release assembly.
(FR)
Selon un mode de réalisation, une gâchette roulante de commande à faible force, à faible frottement, à court déplacement et à faible énergie utilise un élément roulant comme mécanisme de libération de gâchette dans du matériel, des machines et des outils tels que pour des embrayages, des freins, des actionneurs et des lanceurs de projectiles. Les éléments roulants dans le mécanisme déclencheur réduisent le frottement, ce qui, à son tour, réduit la force nécessaire pour libérer la gâchette. Selon un mode de réalisation, la gâchette fait partie d'une arme à feu et utilise une gâchette mécanique. Selon un autre mode de réalisation, la gâchette est activée par un signal électronique qui active un solénoïde, qui tire l'élément roulant, et libère ensuite le percuteur ou dans un ensemble à libération de gâchette.
