Abstract

Fig. 1 shows a display workstation which can be adjusted vertically, rotated and tilted. Vertical adjustment is accomplished by lifting up or pressing down on the display case 12 with the hands to a desired position. It will remain in this position. Referring to Figs. 2 and 3, the weight of the display 12 is overcome by constant tension spring assemblies 14 which are secured to the top end of the vertical uprights 16 and to the display floor 18 of the display case. The vertical adjustment mechanism is supported by the bearing block 20 and tilt sleeve 22 being contained within the support block 24 which is attached to the floor 18 of the display 12. The bearing block 20 glides vertically upon the two guide rods 26 which are attached to the uprights 16.

Adjustable Workstation Display

Fig. 1 shows a display workstation which can be adjusted vertically, rotated and tilted. Vertical adjustment is accomplished by lifting up or pressing down on the display case 12 with the hands to a desired position. It will remain in this position. Referring to Figs. 2 and 3, the weight of the display 12 is overcome by constant tension spring assemblies 14 which are secured to the top end of the vertical uprights 16 and to the display floor 18 of the display case. The vertical adjustment mechanism is supported by the bearing block 20 and tilt sleeve 22 being contained within the support block 24 which is attached to the floor 18 of the display 12. The bearing block 20 glides vertically upon the two guide rods 26 which are attached to the uprights 16. The uprights 16 in turn pass through slots 28 in the display case floor 18 and are secured to the base 30. The brake bar 32 is positioned within a recessed area of the bearing block 20 and nests against the brake sleeves 34, which are a deflective bearing material and are mounted about the guide rods 26. The brake bar 32 is secured in place by being attached to the threaded portion of the vertical positioning adjustment screw 36. The force applied by the brake bar 32 against the brake sleeves 34 retains the display case 12 in the desired vertical position. This force is obtained by the brake bar 32 being pulled against the brake sleeves 34 by the action of the vertical positioning comp...
