Abstract

The idea is an printed adjustable crash body. It combines the adjustability of the rotary joint (see Fig. 1), with the opportunities of the printed metal rod (see Fig. 2) and is locked with an anti-rotation adapter. The interface (see Fig. 3) between rotary joint is a form fit interface which can be casted by resin, metal or glue. The interface being made of metal has a nearly form fit interface which is filled by the Isotruss and the glue, resin or liquid metal. An Anti-Rotation Device (see Fig. 4) maybe arranged between rotary joint and rod. The Anti-Rotation Device fixes the relative position between rotary joint and rod by preventing a further unintended turning of the rotary joint and/or rod due to vibrations, etc. The crash body is arranged between the rotary joint and the rod (see Fig. 5) and may be designed as metal foam, metal honeycombs and/or carbon fiber device. Rod body and crash body can be printed as one part. Alternatively or in addition the rotary joint interface can be integrally printed in the crash body (see Fig. 6). The integrated structure of the crash body maybe a foam, a honeycomb, a thread beam and/or a bone structure. The crash body and/or its structure is preferably 3D printed. The crash body maybe fixed via a Anti-Rotation device.

1. ABSTRACT

The idea is an printed adjustable crash body. It combines the adjustability of the rotary joint (see Fig.
1), with the opportunities of the printed metal rod (see Fig. 2) and is locked with an anti-rotation adapter.

The interface (see Fig. 3) between rotary joint is a form fit interface which can be casted by resin, metal or glue. The interface being made of metal has a nearly form fit interface which is filled by the Isotruss and the glue, resin or liquid metal.

An Anti-Rotation Device (see Fig. 4) maybe arranged between rotary joint and rod. The Anti-Rotation Device fixes the relative position between rotary joint and rod by preventing a further unintended turning of the rotary joint and/or rod due to vibrations, etc.

The crash body is arranged between the rotary joint and the rod (see Fig. 5) and may be designed as metal foam, metal honeycombs and/or carbon fiber device. Rod body and crash body can be printed as one part. Alternatively or in addition the rotary joint interface can be integrally printed in the crash body (see Fig. 6). The integrated structure of the crash body maybe a foam, a honeycomb, a thread beam and/or a bone structure. The crash body and/or its structure is preferably 3D printed. The crash body maybe fixed via a Anti-Rotation device.
