## Abstract

1. ABSTRACT Rotation of vehicle components by means of longitudinal movement. The removal/installation equipment is installed on the upper roof structure of a vehicle and on the vehicle component to be removed/installed (see Fig. 1). The equipment provides means of different stages of movement (see Fig. 2). - Longitudinal movement (set of four carriages) - Lifting lowering (drum with ropes, worm-gear) - Rotation around longitudinal axis (theoretical axis of center of gravity) Fig. 3 shows the main roll-mechanism (other functions are not shown in this principle). The aim is to rotate the vehicle component around the center of gravity (CoG) axis in a controlled manner at every stage of operation with only one mechanism. Starting position: The suspension point is above the CoG and the component is equally balanced and stable. Roll maneuver (see red oval in Fig. 3): By moving the position of the geometrical suspension point along a threaded bar (supported by turning a hand wheel), the CoG tends to remain under the suspension point. This results in rotation of the vehicle component.

1. ABSTRACT

Rotation of vehicle components by means of longitudinal movement.

The removal/installation equipment is installed on the upper roof structure of a vehicle and on the vehicle component to be removed/installed (see Fig. 1).

The equipment provides means of different stages of movement (see Fig. 2).
- Longitudinal movement (set of four carriages)

- Lifting lowering (drum with ropes, worm-gear)

- Rotation around longitudinal axis (theoretical axis of center of gravity)

Fig. 3 shows the main roll-mechanism (other functions are not shown in this principle). The aim is to rotate the vehicle component around the center of gravity (CoG) axis in a controlled manner at every stage of operation with only one mechanism.

Starting position: The suspension point is above the CoG and the component is equally balanced and stable.

Roll maneuver (see red oval in Fig. 3): By moving the position of the geometrical suspension point along a threaded bar (supported by turning a hand wheel), the CoG tends to remain under the suspension point. This results in rotation of the vehicle component.
