Title (EN) FLEXIBLE SHAFT FOR HOLDING A TOOL OF ROTARY DRIVEN MOTION
(FR) TIGE FLEXIBLE POUR MAINTENIR UN OUTIL DE MOUVEMENT ENTRAÎNÉ EN ROTATION
Abstract:
(EN) A tool having a flexible shaft, a first end and, a second end and capable of being bent about its axis. The tool transfers rotary motion from a device to tool. The shaft, manufactured from a rigid material, has at least one flexible segment, each flexible segment have at least one sinuous slot ascending in a helical path. With multiple segments, the helical path of the slots can be opposite or the same. With one or more segments having multiple slots, the slots can be parallel or have opposite ascensions, thereby crossing one another. The helical paths can vary within each segment or from segment to segment.
(FR) L'invention concerne un outil ayant une tige flexible, une première extrémité et une seconde extrémité, et capable d'être courbé autour de son axe. L'outil transfère un mouvement rotatif d'un dispositif à l'outil. La tige, fabriquée d'un matériau rigide, possède au moins un segment flexible, chaque segment flexible ayant au moins une fente sinueuse montant en un trajet hélicoïdal. Avec de multiples segments, le trajet hélicoïdal des fentes peut être opposé ou identique. Avec un ou plusieurs segments ayant de multiples fentes, les fentes peuvent être parallèles ou avoir des ascensions opposées, en se croisant ainsi les unes les autres. Les trajets hélicoïdaux peuvent varier à l'intérieur de chaque segment ou d'un segment à un autre segment.
