Description

FIELD



[0001] The present application relates to the technical field of steel pipes transportation, and more particularly to a lateral pull rod mechanism configured to lock a steel pipe support assembly.

BACKGROUND



[0002] Steel pipes need to be stacked and transported after being manufactured, and during the stacking process and the transportation process, in order to prevent the manufactured steel pipe from being damaged, the steel pipes are placed on a support device during the stacking process and the transportation process. A packaging, stacking, transporting and support device is disclosed in a Chinese Utility Model Patent No. CN 201049795U published on April 23, 2010, which includes an intermediate support member separating the steel pipes from each other and a bundling steel belt configured to bundle the multiple steel pipes. The intermediate support member has an upper row and a lower row of circular arc-shaped grooves matching with the shape of the steel pipe, the material of the intermediate support member is high strength plastic, the device in the Utility Model for packaging, stacking, transporting and supporting the steel pipes can prevent the steel pipes from colliding with each other and from rubbing against each other, thereby protecting the surfaces of the steel pipes from being damaged.

[0003] However, currently, when the steel pipes are stacked by using the transporting and support device, the steel pipes need to be fastened after being stacked, and the fastening process has many procedures and is slow, complicated to operate and time consuming and takes great effort.

SUMMARY



[0004] An object of the present application is to provide a lateral pull rod mechanism configured to lock a steel pipe support assembly, which can address the deficiencies of the conventional technology, and has a novel structure and a low cost, is convenient to manufacture and easy to operate, and saves time and effort.

[0005] The present application is realized through the following technical solutions. A lateral pull rod mechanism configured to lock a steel pipe support assembly includes a pull rod, an upper connecting plate, a pull rod through hole provided in the upper connecting plate, a lower connecting plate, a lower lateral pull rod clamping groove provided in the lower connecting plate, an intermediate connecting block provided between the upper connecting plate and the lower connecting plate, an intermediate lateral pull rod clamping groove provided in the intermediate connecting block, a threaded section provided at an upper end of the pull rod, a fastening nut configured to be screwed onto the threaded section, an anti-disengaging portion provided at a lower end of the pull rod and configured to prevent the pull rod from vertically disengaging from the lower lateral pull rod clamping groove, and a lateral stopping plate configured to prevent the anti-disengaging portion from sliding outwards.

[0006] According to the structure in the present application, first, the intermediate lateral pull rod clamping groove and the lower lateral pull rod clamping groove together form a passage allowing the pull rod to be placed in from the lateral side; second, after the pull rod is laterally placed in the passage, by performing a lifting operation, the anti-disengaging portion is blocked vertically; then, the nut at the upper end is screwed onto the threaded section at the upper end of the pull rod, to ensure that the pull rod will not move vertically; and meanwhile, the lateral stopping plate restricts the anti-disengaging portion laterally, which can ensure that the pull rod will not slide out of the passage laterally.

[0007] The steel pipe support device having the vertical connecting mechanism in the present application is compared with the conventional structures, for example, in Fig. 1 of the U.S patent No. US 7080864 B2, the lifting of a bundle of steel pipes requires several sets of steel pipe support devices (normally 2 to 4 sets), each set of steel pipe support devices is composed of a number of holders (equivalent to the steel pipe support frame of the present application) and fixing parts (equivalent to the vertical connecting mechanism) at two sides of the holders.

[0008] The installation method is described as follows.

[0009] First, the holders of each layer are connected to the corresponding connectors. For example, two ends of the lowest layer holder are respectively connected to two bottom connectors; two ends of the intermediate layer holder are respectively connected to two U-shaped components; and the uppermost layer holder is connected to two upper connectors. Second, several bottom layer holders are placed on a worktable according to the number of the sets of the bundled holders, to ensure that the grooves of the holders are aligned in the axial direction to facilitate the placement of the steel pipes. Then the first layer of steel pipes are placed on the lowest layer holder, then the intermediate layer holder is placed on the first layer of steel pipes, and then the steel pipes are placed on the intermediate layer holder, and the above process is repeated, and finally the uppermost layer holder is placed. At this time, the arrangement of the steel pipes and the holders is finished.

[0010] Then the next step is proceeded to fix each set of holders.

[0011] As for the holders in the U.S. Patent No. US 7080864 B2, at this time, two threaded rods are required to pass through the upper connectors, the U-shaped connectors, and the bottom connectors from top to bottom in sequence, and are finally screwed into the nuts pre-installed and fixed in the bottom connectors, and then the top layer nuts are screwed onto the upper ends of the threaded rods to realize the locking of the whole device. The alignment is difficult during the process of installing the threaded rods, an operator is required to operate on the side where the lateral pull rod mechanism is located, and further, the torque transmission is also hard, a clamp is required to clamp the threaded rod for screwing.

[0012] On the contrary, by using the vertical connecting mechanism according to the present application, the step of twisting the pull rod to screw the pull rod into the nut is directly omitted, and the pull rod can be directly placed into the passage from the lateral side, and then be lifted to be tensioned, and finally the pull rod is locked by a nut at the upper end. Since the work piece is designed to have a certain allowance, when placing the pull rod laterally, it is not required to align very precisely as required in the situation using the nuts, and the operator can complete the operation at one side of the worktable, which is suitable for some factories having the defects that the operation on both sides is not allowed due to the limited space. Moreover, the present application omits the time-consuming operation of using tools to fix the pull rod to the nut, and thus saves the tools.

[0013] As a preferred solution, an anti-rotating portion is provided between the pull rod and the anti-disengaging portion, and is configured to cooperate with the intermediate lateral pull rod clamping groove to prevent rotation of the pull rod.

[0014] As a preferred solution, the anti-rotating portion has two anti-rotating lateral surfaces configured to cooperate with the intermediate lateral pull rod clamping groove.
