Description

  • The The invention relates to a hinge for a vehicle door The preamble of claim 1, comprising an on one of vehicle frames or vehicle door arranged first hinge part, one on the other second hinge part arranged by vehicle frame or vehicle flap, a coupling the first hinge part and the second hinge part Four-joint with a first link and a second link, both each pivotally attached to the first hinge part and pivotally hinged to the second hinge part, one on one of the pivotally arranged first hinge part or the second hinge part first lever, and a first lever acting on energy storage.
  • DE 197 12 382 C1 shows a hinge for a vehicle door, wherein a first hinge part is arranged on a vehicle frame and a second hinge part on a vehicle door, wherein the first hinge part and the second hinge part are pivotally connected to each other by means of a four-bar linkage. The four-bar linkage has a first and a second link, wherein each of the two links are each arranged pivotably on the first hinge part and the second hinge part. On the second hinge part, a first lever is pivotally connected to a first hinge, wherein the lever has a second joint, on which a gas spring is articulated, which is fixed with a second end to the first hinge part. The lever has a support with the first link of the four-bar linkage. A disadvantage of this type of hinges is the fact that the force introduced by the gas spring is provided only for opening the hinge. If this is the vehicle door in the open position, then a relatively large force is necessary to close the vehicle door from this position, since the vehicle door must be pivoted out of a fixed position. By arranged on the second hinge part lever, however, a force is not possible in the hinge to support the closing movement.
  • DE 198 46 600 A1 shows a hinge for a vehicle door, wherein a first hinge part is arranged on the vehicle frame and a second hinge part on the vehicle door, wherein the first hinge part and the second hinge part pivotally connected to each other by means of a four-bar linkage comprising a first link and a second link are. The first link and the second link are pivotally mounted on the first hinge part and the second hinge part, respectively. A gas spring is disposed with a first end on the first hinge part and a second end on the second hinge part. On the hinge part arranged on the vehicle frame, a V-shaped leaf spring is provided, which engages with a roller arranged on the second hinge part. In a closed position of the hinge, the V-shaped leaf spring is completely compressed by the roller. When opening the vehicle door, the leaf spring generates an upward force on the roller and thus causes the vehicle door to be opened, the roller rolling over the leaf spring to a free end and the upward force being reduced during the opening of the vehicle door. At a certain opening angle of the vehicle door in which the force of the V-shaped leaf spring is too small to assist the opening movement, the gas spring takes over the support of the opening movement of the flap.
  • US 5,788,312 A shows a hinge for a vehicle door, in which a first hinge part on a vehicle door and a second hinge part are arranged on a vehicle frame. The first hinge part and the second hinge part are pivotally connected to each other by means of a hinge pin.
