Title
(EN) A SUPPORT ELEMENT AND A METHOD FOR SUPPORTING AN ELONGATED BEAM, AND A ROTARY PLATFORM
(FR) ÉLÉMENT DE SUPPORT ET PROCÉDÉ DE SUPPORT D'UNE POUTRE ALLONGÉE, ET PLATE-FORME ROTATIVE
Abstract
(EN)
A rotary milking platform (1) comprises a platform (3) having a circular carrier beam (7) secured to the underside of the platform (3). The carrier beam (7) is supported on a plurality of support elements (10), each of which comprise a freely rotatable roller (35) which is configured to rollably engage an under surface (38) of the carrier beam (7). Each support element (10) comprises an anchor plate (27) adjustably mounted on a corresponding ground engaging element (20) which is secured to the ground. A carrier plate (40) is carried on four guide bolts (50) extending upwardly from the anchor plate (27). Side members (41) extending downwardly from the carrier plate (40) rotatably carry the roller (35). Compression springs (59) acting between abutment washers (55) secured to the guide bolts (50) and the carrier plate (40) urge the carrier plate (40) against heads (53) of the guide bolts (50). The compression springs (59) accommodate downward and upward movement of the roller (35) in order to accommodate rising and falling of the under surface (38) of the beam (7). The compression springs (59) permit tilting movement of the roller (35) about a tilt axis (61) which extends in the direction of motion of the beam (7) in order to facilitate tilting of the roller (35) to follow any non-horizontality of the under surface (38) of the beam (7). The tilt axis is located just below a line of contact (67) of the roller (35) with the under surface (38) of the beam (7) to minimise lateral movement of the roller relative to the beam (7) as the roller (35) tilts about the tilt axis.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne une plate-forme de traite rotative (1) comprenant une plate-forme (3) dotée d'une poutre de support circulaire (7) fixée à la face inférieure de la plate-forme (3). La poutre de support (7) est supportée sur une pluralité d'éléments de support (10), chacun d'eux comprenant un rouleau librement rotatif (35) qui est conçu pour venir en prise roulante avec une surface inférieure (38) de la poutre de support (7). Chaque élément de support (10) comprend une plaque d'ancrage (27) montée de façon réglable sur un élément de mise en prise avec le sol (20) correspondant qui est fixé au sol. Une plaque de support (40) est portée sur quatre boulons de guidage (50) s'étendant vers le haut à partir de la plaque d'ancrage (27). Des éléments latéraux (41) s'étendant vers le bas depuis la plaque de support (40) portent de façon rotative le rouleau (35). Des ressorts de compression (59) agissant entre des rondelles de butée (55) solidaires des boulons de guidage (50) et de la plaque de support (40) poussent la plaque de support (40) contre les têtes (53) des boulons de guidage (50). Les ressorts de compression (59) reçoivent le mouvement vers le bas et vers le haut du rouleau (35) afin de s'adapter à l'élévation et à la chute de la surface inférieure (38) de la poutre (7). Les ressorts de compression (59) permettent un mouvement d'inclinaison du rouleau (35) autour d'un axe d'inclinaison (61) qui s'étend dans la direction de mouvement de la poutre (7) afin de faciliter l'inclinaison du rouleau (35) pour suivre toute non-horizontalité de la surface inférieure (38) de la poutre (7). L'axe d'inclinaison est situé juste au-dessous d'une ligne de contact (67) du rouleau (35) avec la surface inférieure (38) de la poutre (7) pour minimiser le mouvement latéral du rouleau par rapport à la poutre (7) lorsque le rouleau (35) s'incline autour de l'axe d'inclinaison.
