Title
(EN) LINK CHAIN, CHAIN SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) CHAÎNE DE LIAISON, SYSTÈME DE CHAÎNE ET PROCÉDÉ
Abstract
(EN)
Described is a chain including a plurality of links pivotally connected to each other such that the chain is configured to bend in one direction without back-bending. Each of the plurality of links including a link body include: an inner side facing a bending direction of the chain; an outer side facing opposite the bending direction of the chain; a back-bending prevention portion; a post feature extending laterally across the link body, and a connection feature configured to engage with the post feature of the first other of the pivotally connected plurality of links to create one direction pivotal attachment without back-bending between the links. Further disclosed is a chain system and methods of moving devices with a chain or chain system.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne une chaîne comprenant une pluralité de liaisons raccordées de manière pivotante les unes aux autres de telle sorte que la chaîne est conçue pour se courber dans une direction sans courbure arrière. Chacune de la pluralité de liaisons comprenant un corps de liaison comportant : un côté interne faisant face à une direction de courbure de la chaîne ; un côté externe faisant face à l'opposé de la direction de courbure de la chaîne ; une partie de prévention de courbure arrière ; un élément de type montant s'étendant latéralement à travers le corps de liaison, et un élément de raccordement conçu pour venir en prise avec l'élément de type montant de la première autre liaison de la pluralité de liaisons raccordées de manière pivotante pour créer une fixation pivotante dans une direction sans courbure arrière entre les liaisons. La présente invention concerne en outre un système de chaîne et des procédés de déplacement de dispositifs avec une chaîne ou un système de chaîne.
