Title
(EN) A WINDSCREEN WIPER ARM AND METHOD FOR PRODUCING THE SAME
(FR) BRAS D'ESSUIE-GLACE DE PARE-BRISE ET PROCÉDÉ POUR SA PRODUCTION
Abstract
(EN)
A windscreen wiper arm (8), particularly for automobiles, comprising a mounting head (11) mountable on a drive shaft (12) and an arm member (13) pivotally connected to the mounting head (18) by means of a pivot pin (14), wherein the arm member (13) has a substantially U-shaped cross-section near said pivot pin (14) comprising two side walls (16, 17), wherein a part of the mounting head (11) extends between the side walls (16, 17) and beyond said pivot pin (14), wherein said part is provided with opposite abutting surfaces (20,21) for abutting against the side walls (16, 17) of the arm member (13), wherein means are provided on said mounting head (11) and said arm member (13) for limiting a pivot angle of the arm member (13), wherein said means comprise at least one guiding groove (22) on one of said abutting surfaces (20, 21) of said part of said mounting head (11), as well as at least one outwardly extending finger (19) on said arm member (13) cooperating with said guiding groove (22), wherein said finger (19) is movable in said guiding groove (22) between a first position corresponding with a wiping position of the arm member (13) and a second position corresponding with a mounting position of the arm member (13), and wherein said finger (19) extends outwardly from a base (18) of the U-shaped cross-section of said arm member (13) in a direction towards said drive shaft (12).
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un bras d'essuie-glace de pare-brise (8), en particulier pour des automobiles, lequel bras comprend une tête de montage (11) pouvant être montée sur un arbre d'entraînement (12) et un élément de bras (13) relié de façon à pouvoir pivoter à la tête de montage (18) à l'aide d'une broche de pivot (14), l'élément de bras (13) ayant une section sensiblement en forme de U au voisinage de ladite broche de pivot (14), comprenant deux parois latérales (16, 17), une partie de la tête de montage (11) s'étendant entre les parois latérales (16, 17) et au-delà de ladite broche de pivot (14), ladite partie comportant des surfaces de butée opposées (20, 21) pour buter contre les parois latérales (16, 17) de l'élément de bras (13), des moyens étant présents sur ladite tête de montage (11) et sur ledit élément de bras (13) pour limiter un angle de pivotement de l'élément de bras (13), lesdits moyens comprenant au moins une rainure de guidage (22) sur l'une desdites surfaces de butée (20, 21) de ladite partie de ladite tête de montage (11), ainsi qu'au moins un doigt s'étendant vers l'extérieur (19) sur ledit élément de bras (13), coopérant avec ladite rainure de guidage (22), ledit doigt (19) étant mobile dans ladite rainure de guidage (22) entre une première position correspondant à une position d'essuyage de l'élément de bras (13) et une seconde position correspondant à une position de montage de l'élément de bras (13), et ledit doigt (19) s'étendant vers l'extérieur à partir d'une base (18) de la section transversale en forme de U dudit élément de bras (13) dans une direction vers ledit arbre d'entraînement (12).
