Title (EN) CRANE ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE GRUE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention provides a crane assembly for lifting a load comprising: a pair of guides (2) positioned parallel to one another; a carriage (4,40) associated with each guide (2) and movable along each guide (2); a bridge (1) having an attachment point (8) for attaching the load, the bridge (1) being attached between the carriages (4,40) through connector arms (3), each connector arm (3) being attached through a lower end (31) to the bridge (1) and pivotable (5) at least about an axis perpendicular to the bridge, each connector arm (3) being attached at an upper end (32) to the corresponding carriage (4,40) through a multi-axis joint (33,35); wherein each multiaxis joint (33,35) is connected to the corresponding carriage (4,40) through a low friction thrust bearing (6)configured to rotate with initial movement of the corresponding carriage (4,40).
(FR) L'invention concerne un ensemble grue destiné à soulever une charge et comportant: une paire de guides (2) positionnés parallèlement l'un à l'autre; un chariot (4,40) associé à chaque guide (2) et mobile le long de chaque guide (2); un pont (1) doté d'un point (8) de fixation servant à fixer la charge, le pont (1) étant fixé entre les chariots (4,40) par l'intermédiaire de bras (3) de liaison, chaque bras (3) de liaison étant fixé par l'intermédiaire d'une extrémité inférieure (31) au pont (1) et pouvant pivoter (5) au moins autour d'un axe perpendiculaire au pont, chaque bras (3) de liaison étant fixé au niveau d'une extrémité supérieure (32) au chariot (4,40) correspondant par l'intermédiaire d'une articulation multiaxes (33,35); chaque articulation multiaxes (33,35) étant reliée au chariot (4,40) correspondant par l'intermédiaire d'un palier (6) de butée à faible frottement configuré pour tourner avec un mouvement initial du chariot (4,40) correspondant.
