Abstract
(EN)
A mechanical system composed of two identical, cubical rigid frames connected by a revolving bar linkage assembly which is operated simultaneously by two identical epicyclic planetary gear mechanisms, contained separately inside the volume of each cubical frame. The overall mechanical assembly possesses a chiral, double-reflection symmetry as kinematic construction. This kinematic design produces the translating orbital motion of the cubes relative to one another while preserving attitude and also respecting a straight line trajectory. The said trajectory is the sum of the five necessary translations required for a 360 degrees performance of one of the cubes around the other. The system achieves the condition of coincidence between either two faces, one from each cube, with the plane of translation or two edges, one from each cube, with the same line. Each mechanical assembly contained inside each cubical frame uses only one rotational input as driving source. Each separate mechanical assembly is composed of a planetary gear arrangement, a revolving bar linkage driven by the gear planets and a periodical closed-shaped cam, rigidly attached to the planet carrier. The said cam is determining the sun gear behavior through a rack gear engagement that follows the oscillation of a specific function.

L'invention concerne un système mécanique, lequel système est constitué par deux cadres rigides cubiques identiques reliés par un ensemble de liaison à barres tournantes qui est actionné simultanément par deux mécanismes d'engrenages planétaires épicycloïdaux identiques, contenus séparément à l'intérieur du volume de chaque cadre cubique. L'ensemble mécanique tout entier a une symétrie chirale à double réflexion à titre de construction cinématique. Cette configuration cinématique produit le mouvement de translation orbitale des cubes l'un par rapport à l'autre tout en préservant l'attitude et en respectant également une trajectoire de ligne droite. Ladite trajectoire est la somme des cinq translations nécessaires requises pour une opération de 360 degrés de l'un des cubes autour de l'autre. Le système produit l'état de coïncidence entre l'une ou l'autre de deux faces, chacune de chaque cube, avec le plan de translation ou deux bords, chacun de chaque cube, avec la même ligne. Chaque ensemble mécanique contenu à l'intérieur de chaque cadre cubique utilise uniquement une entrée rotative comme source d'entraînement. Chaque ensemble mécanique séparé est constitué par un agencement d'engrenages planétaires, une liaison à barre tournante entraînée par les planétaires d'engrenages et une came de forme fermée périodique, attachée de manière rigide au porte-satellites. Ladite came détermine le comportement de la roue solaire par l'intermédiaire de l'engrènement d'un engrenage de crémaillère qui suit l'oscillation d'une fonction spécifique.
