Abstract

The mechanical joint permits unrestricted planar pivotal motion through a small angle. Pivot housing 10 has a generally cylindrical surface 11 within which the a pivot element cylindrical base 13 is journaled. Arm 14 extends through an opening sector 16 in housing 10 which permits arm 14 to pivot through an angle determined by the radial boundary surface 18 of sector 16. Housing 10 has rectangular, axial, slotted opening 20 with one confining axial wall relieved along a surface contiguous with surface 11 to afford a continuous opening at one axial side from opening 20 through sector 16. At the diametrically opposite side, the other axial boundary wall is relieved by continuing sector 16.

Controlled Motion Pivot

The mechanical joint permits unrestricted planar pivotal motion through a small angle. Pivot housing 10 has a generally cylindrical surface 11 within which the a pivot element cylindrical base 13 is journaled. Arm 14 extends through an opening sector 16 in housing 10 which permits arm 14 to pivot through an angle determined by the radial boundary surface 18 of sector 16. Housing 10 has rectangular, axial, slotted opening 20 with one confining axial wall relieved along a surface contiguous with surface 11 to afford a continuous opening at one axial side from opening 20 through sector 16. At the diametrically opposite side, the other axial boundary wall is relieved by continuing sector 16. Pivot arm assembly 22 is assembled to housing 10 by insertion of pivot 13 into slot 20 as shown at B, pivoting assembly 22 as shown at C to the assembled condition as in D.
