This invention relates to resilient or damped mounting of parts 'or units embodied in radiophonic apparatus, talking machines andthe like, onA supports therefor and more particularly in the respective containers as cases and cabinets. In this invention a carrier as a plate or frame carrying the part or unit to be supported re-` l siiiently is mounted on a support or in cohtainer to bear thereon and is engaged with perimetrical .parts of saidcontainer by the intermediate of resilient members.
More particularly in a'preferred embodiment of this inventionsaid carrier is engaged `with the l perimetrical walls of the container by means of a peripheral lining of soft material which may consist of a rubber cord or pipe. Said lining being located intermediate an abutment provided in Fig. 1 is a verticalsectionof a cabinet yin which a driving unit for talking machine recordsf'is mounted in accordance with this invention, said unit including a driving motor and a turn plate driven by said motor and intended to carry and drive a record; s
Fig. v.2 is a fragmentary section reproducing a right hand portion of Fig; 1 to an enlarged scale;
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary section of an arrangement according to* this invention for mounting a radio receiver chassis in a cabinet.
' i In the embodiment of Figs. 1 and 2, wa talking machine record turn'device comprising an electriovmotor '6 and-a turn plate i2 located on a carrier plate 5, is located within a cabinet comprising 'the perimetrical walls i said plate 5 being supported on said perimetrical walls' i. The said perimetrical walls i are provided in their internal surface with a seat in which a softlining ii is located-and the edges of the plate abut on said lining ii the plate 5 and the unit carried thereby Ibeing thus held in position resiliently.
The soft lining i I which interengages the plate with the walls I of the cabinet is located intermediate a stepped notch lo of the saidrperimetrical'walls i and an edge step 9 of theplate 5, said notch and step providing confronting abutments as shown in Fig. 2; the lining il conveniently consists of a small-size rubber pipe and it is d lvided in a number of sections and' more Vparticularly in a number of sections which corresponds with the number of sides and container I.
The plate 5 is convenientlysupported on the walls i by the intermediate of soft members, as elastic pads 4, which are conveniently-located in seats 3 provided in brackets 2 fast on the internal faces of the perimetrical walls l of the` l cabinet; the pads 4 are conveniently made of soft rubber of the 'so-called antimicrophonic type.
Fig. 3 shows an embodiment of this invention in connection with resilient mounting of a. radiophonic apparatus on a support within a cabinet.v
In this embodiment the support member `2 has a frame i3 fast thereon and the edge'ofsaid frame has an outward ange l0 providing an outer peripheral abutment; pads t' of soft rubber are located within said frame i3 and rest thereon.
-The chassis of a radioreceiver, as outlined at il, is fastened-'by means of straps i6 on a carrier frame i5 which bears on. said pads t' and encircles the support frame i3; said frame l5 provides a flange dat its lower edge, which extehdsinwardly under the flange i0 and is vertically spaced under it, to provide an abutment confronting with the abutment provided by said flange i.
-A rubberpipe il is located intermediate the abutment flanges and i0 and said pipe ii resiliently interengages the system l5, 9, it with that i3, .i0 both in upward and in transverse zli-A rection; on the otherhand the system i5, t, it is resiliently supported on the frame i3 vand support 2 by the intermediate pads d' which arefastened in position by means ofv studs id extending in recesses t" thereof. A
As'an effect of the described arrangement, the supported unit is resiliently engaged in position both in transverse and in vertical directions; on
the other hand the. provision ofthe lining il is also eillcient'to prevent foreign-matters from entering beyond it and Vto improve the appearance of the whole.
What I claim as my invention and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:
y 1. An arrangement for resiliently mounting an unit on a support elementcomprising a'carrier lelement for said unit, soft pads on said support element on which said carrier element bears, said carrier and support elements providing 'confronting perimetrical faces spaced from 'eachother in vertical direction, one of said elements havingv the outer edges of its said faces located of the carrierA plate E j within the space limited by the internal edges of said faces of the other one of said elements and being clear therefrom in vertical direction to provide for a free respective displacement thereof in said direction and resilient means vlocated intermediate said confronting faces of said car- Vrier and support elements and engaging said carrler with said support said resilient means being the sole means interconnecting said carrier and support laterally and' upwardly. g 2. An arrangement for resiliently mounting an unit on a support comprising 'a frame fast on said support, a carrier for said unit, a, frame fastI on said carrier and encircling said support frame, resilient means in said support frame on which said carrier frame bears, a peripheral outward flange on said support frame, a perimetrical flange on said carrier frame extending inwardly under said support frame flange and vertically spaced therefrom, and a soft lining intermediate said frames and flanges and engaging said carrier with said support laterally and upwardly.
3. in arrangement for resiliently mounting an `unit on a-support comprising a frame fast on said support, a carrier forsaid unit, a frame fast on said carrier and encircling said support frame, studs fast on one of said frames, recessed rubber supporting pads intermediate said frames and mounted on said studs, a peripheral flange on said support frame, a perimetrical flange on said carrier frame .extending inwardly under said support frame flange and vertically spaced therefrom, and a soft .lining intermediate said frames and flanges and engaging said carrier with said support laterally and upwardly.
4. An arrangement for resiliently mounting an unit in a. container having perimetrical walls, comprising a carrier for said unit having its peripheral edges adjacent to and spaced from the respective container walls, means in said container walls providing seats in register with and located under the peripheral region of said\ carrier, resilient means in said container wall seats on which said carrier bears, saidcarrier-'and container walls providing confronting perimetrical faces spaced from each other in vertical direc.- tionv and resilient means located intermediate said confronting faces of said carrier and container walls and engaging said carrier with said container laterally and upwardly.v
5. An arrangement for resiliently mounting an unit in a container having perimetrical walls,
`comprising a carrier for said -unit having its peripheral edges adjacent to and spaced from the respective container walls, means in said container walls providing seats in register with and located under the peripheral region of said carrier, resilient supporting means intermediate said container wall seats and' carrier, said carrier providing an abutment along the periphery thereof facing the respective adjacent walls of said container and said container walls having notches extending thereacross and providing a perimetrical abutment confronting with and spaced from said carrier abutment, and a soft lining located intermediate said confronting abutments of said carrier and container walls and-engaging said carrier with said container laterally and upwardly.
'6. An arrangement for resiliently mounting an unit in a container havingperimetrical Walls, comprising a carrier for said unit having its peripheral edges adjacent to and spaced from the respectivecontainer walls, supporting means in said container over which the edges of said carrier extend; soft rubber pads intermediate said supporting means and carrier edges, said carrier and container walls providing Vconfronting perimetrical abutments spaced from each other in vertical direction andV a peripheral lining of soft material intermediate said confronting abut-- ments of said carrier and container walls and engaging said carrier with Saidcontainer laterally MANLIO MARZETII.
