Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD
  • The present invention relates to construction machines such as a hydraulic excavator and, in particular, to a construction machine provided with a revolving frame formed by connecting a tail frame to a rear part side of a center frame.
  • BACKGROUND ART
  • Generally, a hydraulic excavator as a typical example of a construction machine is largely constituted by a automotive lower traveling structure, an upper revolving structure that is rotatably mounted on the lower traveling structure and forms a vehicle body together with the lower traveling structure, and a working mechanism liftably provided on the front part side of the upper revolving structure.
  • The upper revolving structure is formed of a revolving frame, a cab that is provided on a front left side of the revolving frame, an engine and a hydraulic pump mounted on a rear part side of the revolving frame, a housing cover that covers the engine and the like, and a counterweight that is provided on a back end portion of the revolving frame.
  • The revolving frame of the upper revolving structure is composed of a center frame forming the center part of the revolving frame, a tail frame connected to the rear part side of the center frame, and left and right side frames provided on both the left and right sides sandwiching the center frame and the tail frame, for example (Patent Document 1).
  • In this case, the center frame of the revolving frame is composed of a front bottom plate, left and right front vertical plates extending in the front and rear direction on the front bottom plate and erected in the left and right directions with an interval and the front part side is a bracket portion which pin-connects a boom of a working mechanism and a boom cylinder. On the other hand, the tail frame is composed of left and right I-section beams joined to the rear part of each front vertical plate and a rear bottom plate which connects each I-section beam to each other.
  • The left and right I-section beams of the tail frame are formed of left and right rear vertical plates extending in the front and rear directions and having the front ends joined to each front vertical plate, an upper flange portion provided on the upper side of each rear vertical plate, extending in the front and rear directions and having the front end joined to each front vertical plate, and a lower flange portion provided on the lower side of each rear vertical plate, extending in the front and rear directions and having the front end joined to the front bottom plate.
  • Moreover, in regard to the bracket portion of the center frame, a boom pin through hole for performing pin-connection at a foot portion (base end portion) of the boom and a cylinder pin through hole for performing pin-connection of a base end portion of a boom cylinder are provided. The foot portion of the boom is rotatably (tiltably) mounted on the bracket portion of the center frame through a boom connecting pin inserted through the boom pin through hole, and the base end portion of the boom cylinder is rotatably mounted on the bracket portion of the center frame through a cylinder connecting pin inserted through the cylinder pin through hole.
  • In order to effectively use the force of the boom cylinder, a distance between the foot portion of the boom and the base end portion of the boom cylinder is preferably large. In order to increase the distance, a height dimension from the front bottom plate of the center frame to the foot portion of the boom, that is, a height dimension from the front bottom plate of the center frame to the hole center of the boom pin through hole can be increased. In this case, the left and right front vertical plates including the bracket portion should have sufficient strength so as to bear a twisting moment applied from the boom or the like.
  • On the other hand, Patent Document 2 discloses a configuration in which strength of the left and right front vertical plates is ensured by providing reinforcing members between the left and right front vertical plates and the front bottom plate. Further, Patent Document 3 discloses a configuration in which strength of the front part sides of the left and right vertical plates is ensured by forming the front part sides of the left and right vertical plates (center beam) having a box shape.

    SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • With regard to the conventional art according to Patent Document 2, there is a concern that a weight of a revolving frame might be increased by provision of a reinforcing member. On the other hand, with regard to the conventional art according to Patent Document 3, since the front part sides of the left and right vertical plates (center beam) are formed having a box shape, there are problems in that the structure becomes complicated, and size and weight might be increased.
  • In view of the above-discussed problems with the conventional art, it is an object of the present invention to provide a construction machine which can constitute a small-sized and light-weighted center frame of a revolving frame.
  • (1) In order to solve the above-described problems, the present invention is applied to a construction machine comprising: a lower traveling structure; an upper revolving structure rotatably mounted on the lower traveling structure; and a working mechanism liftably provided on a front part side of the upper revolving structure, wherein a center frame of a revolving frame constituting the upper revolving structure is composed of a front bottom plate and left and right front vertical plates extending in the front and rear directions on the front bottom plate, erecting in the left and right directions with an interval, and having the front part side being a bracket portion for performing pin-connection of a boom of the working mechanism and a boom cylinder; a tail frame connected to a rear part side of the center frame is composed of left and right I-section beams joined to a rear part of each of the front vertical plates and a rear bottom plate connecting each of the I-section beams to each other; and the left and right I-section beams are formed of left and right rear vertical plates extending in the front and rear directions and having front ends joined to each of the front vertical plates, an upper flange portion provided on the upper side of each of the rear vertical plates, extending in the front and rear directions, and having a front end joined to each of the front vertical plates, and a lower flange portion provided on the lower side of each of the rear vertical plates, extending in the front and rear directions and having the front end joined to the front bottom plate.
  • A feature of the configuration adopted by the present invention is that a boom pin through hole performing pin-connection of a foot portion of the boom is provided on the bracket portion of the center frame; and supposing that a height dimension from the front bottom plate to a hole center of the boom pin through hole is (A) and a height dimension from the front bottom plate to the front end of the upper flange portion is (B), the height dimension (A) is set smaller than the height dimension (B).
  • In this arrangement, the height dimension from the front bottom plate to the foot portion of the boom can be reduced, and a twisting moment, a bending moment and the like applied to the left and right front vertical plates from the boom can be suppressed by that portion. Thus, as in the conventional arts, it is no longer necessary to provide a reinforcing member between the left and right front vertical plates and the front bottom plate or to constitute the front part sides of the left and right vertical plates (center beam), each having a box shape and the size and weight of the center frame can be reduced. Moreover, the height dimension as the entire construction machine can be also reduced by which the height position of the foot portion of the boom can be reduced. Therefore, when a trailer on which the construction machine is loaded travels on a public road, the height dimension can be easily arranged within a range regulated by laws and regulations.
  • (2) In the present invention, a cylinder pin through hole performing pin-connection of the boom cylinder is provided in the bracket portion of the center frame on the front side of the boom pin through hole and at a position on the lower side; and supposing that a distance dimension between the hole center of the cylinder pin through hole and the hole center of the boom pin through hole is (C) and a distance in the horizontal direction is (D) when the height dimension (A) is set smaller than the height dimension (B), and supposing that, as a comparison target, a distance dimension between the hole center of a cylinder pin through hole and the hole center of a boom pin through hole is (Cp) and a distance in the horizontal direction is (Dp) when a height dimension (Ap) from a front bottom plate to the hole center of the boom pin through hole is set larger than a height dimension (Bp) from the front bottom plate to the front end of the upper flange portion, the distance (D) is set larger than the distance (Dp) in accordance with a portion by which the height dimension (A) is set smaller than the height dimension (Ap) so that the distance dimension (C) becomes substantially equal to the distance dimension (Cp).
  • In this arrangement, since the distance (D) in the horizontal direction between the hole center of the cylinder pin through hole and the hole center of the boom pin through hole is set larger in accordance with the portion by which the height dimension (A) from the front bottom plate to the hole center of the boom pin through hole is set smaller, the distance dimension (C) between the hole center of the cylinder pin through hole and the hole center of the boom pin through hole can be ensured. As a result, even if the height dimension (A) from the front bottom plate to the hole center of the boom pin through hole is set smaller, the distance between the foot portion of the boom and the base end portion of the boom cylinder can be ensured, and the force of the boom cylinder can be effectively used.
  • (3) In the present invention, supposing that a distance between a center line (S-S) in the front and rear directions passing through the middle of the left front vertical plate and the right front vertical plate of the center frame and a revolving center (O) of the center frame is (E) when the height dimension (A) is set smaller than the height dimension (B), and supposing that, as a comparison target, a distance between a center line (Sp-Sp) in the front and rear directions passing through the middle of a left front vertical plate and the right front vertical plate of a center frame and a revolving center (Op) of the center frame is (Ep) when the height dimension (Ap) from the front bottom plate to the hole center of the boom pin through hole is set larger than the height dimension (Bp) from the front bottom plate to the front end of the upper flange portion, the distance (E) is set smaller than the distance (Ep).
  • In this arrangement, since the distance (E) between the center line (S-S) in the front and rear directions passing through the middle of the left front vertical plate and the right front vertical plate and the revolving center (O) of the center frame is set smaller, balance (position relationship) between the left front vertical plate and the right front vertical plate with respect to a swing circle provided between the upper revolving structure and the lower traveling structure can be made close to equal in the left and right directions. As a result, the swing circle can receive the force applied from the left and right front vertical plates through the front bottom plate in a state closer to equal in the left and right directions, and torsion of the center frame can be reduced (configuration can be made advantageous in terms of strength).
  • (4) According to the present invention, a cylinder pin through hole performing pin-connection of the boom cylinder is provided in the bracket portion of the center frame on the front side of the boom pin through hole and at a position on the lower side; and supposing that a distance dimension between the hole center of the cylinder pin through hole and the hole center of the boom pin through hole is (C) and a distance in the horizontal direction is (D) when the height dimension (A) is set smaller than the height dimension (B), and that a distance between a center line (S-S) in the front and rear directions passing through the middle of the left front vertical plate and the right front vertical plate of the center frame and the revolving center (O) of the center frame is (E), supposing that, as a comparison target, a distance dimension between the hole center of the cylinder pin through hole and a hole center of the boom pin through hole is (Cp) and a distance in the horizontal direction is (Dp) when a height dimension (Ap) from a front bottom plate to the hole center of the boom pin through hole is set larger than a height dimension (Bp) from the front bottom plate to a front end of an upper flange portion, and that a distance between a center line (Sp-Sp) in the front and rear directions passing through the middle of a left front vertical plate and a right front vertical plate of a center frame and the revolving center (Op) of the center frame is (Ep), it is preferable that the distance (D) is set larger than the distance (Dp) and also, the distance (E) is set smaller than the distance (Ep) in accordance with a portion by which the height dimension (A) is set smaller than the height dimension (Ap) so that the distance dimension (C) becomes substantially equal to the distance dimension (Cp). As a result, the same effect as that in (2) and (3) can be obtained.
  • (5) Further, the present invention is arranged that a front plate extending in the left and right directions and connecting the left and right front vertical plates is provided on the front part sides between the left and right front vertical plates; and a first bent portion and a second bent portion bent at two spots in the front and rear directions are provided in the front plate.
  • In this arrangement, since the front plate connecting the front part sides of the left and right front vertical plates is configured to be bent at two spots, strength of the front plate can be improved as compared with bending at one spot, and design freedom in an inclination angle of the front plate and the position relationship of the front end portion (lower end portion) of the front plate with respect to the swing circle and the like can be improved.

  • Subsequently, the configuration of the center frame 12 used in this embodiment will be described in comparison with the configuration in a comparative example illustrated in FIGS. 10 and 11. In the comparative example, dashes (′) are given to the configurations corresponding to those in this embodiment, and the description will be omitted.
  • A center frame 12′ of the comparative example illustrated in FIGS. 10 and 11 has each of boom pin through holes 15A′ and 18A′ of left and right boom mounting plate portions 15′ and 18′ provided at positions higher than the front ends of upper flange portions 31B′ and 32B′ of I-section beams 31′ and 32′ constituting a tail frame 30′. That is, in the comparative example, supposing that a height dimension from a front bottom plate 13′ to the hole centers of the boom pin through holes 15A′ and 18A′ is Ap and a height dimension from the front bottom plate 13′ to the front ends of the upper flange portions 31B′ and 32B′ is Bp, the height dimension Ap is set larger than the height dimension Bp as shown in the following formula 2:

  • Height dimension Ap>height dimension Bp   [Formula 2]
  • On the other hand, in this embodiment, as illustrated in FIGS. 3 and 8, supposing that the height dimension from the front bottom plate 13 to the hole centers of the boom pin through holes 15A and 18A is A and the height dimension from the front bottom plate 13 to the front ends of the upper flange portions 31B and 32B is B, the height dimension A is set smaller than the height dimension B as shown in the above-described formula 1.
  • Moreover, in this embodiment, suppose that a distance dimension between the hole centers of the left and right cylinder pin through holes 16A, 21A, 19A, and 22A and the hole centers of the boom pin through holes 15A and 18A is C and the distance in the horizontal direction as D. In this case, in this embodiment, the horizontal direction distance D is set larger than a horizontal direction distance Dp of the configuration of the comparative example illustrated in FIGS. 10 and 11 as shown in the following formula 3:

  • Distance D in horizontal direction>distance Dp in horizontal direction   [Formula 3]
  • That is, as illustrated in FIG. 10, suppose that a distance dimension between the hole centers of the left and right cylinder pin through holes 16A′ and 19A′ and the hole centers of the boom pin through holes 15A′ and 18A′ in the comparative example is Cp and a distance in the horizontal direction is Dp. In this case, the horizontal direction distance D in this embodiment illustrated in FIG. 8 is set larger than the horizontal direction distance Dp in the comparative example (See Formula 3).
  • Specifically, even if the height dimension A in this embodiment is set smaller than the height dimension Ap in the comparative example, the distance dimension C in this embodiment is set substantially equal to the distance dimension Cp in the comparative example. That is, in this embodiment, the horizontal direction distance D is set larger than the horizontal direction distance Dp by the comparative example in accordance with a portion by which the height dimension A is set smaller than the height dimension Ap (See Formula 3).
  • As a result, in this embodiment, even if the height dimension A from the front bottom plate 13 to the hole centers of the boom pin through holes 15A and 18A is lowered, the distance (distance dimension C) between the foot portion of the lower boom 5A and the base end portion of each boom cylinder 5E can be set larger, whereby the force of each boom cylinder 5E can be effectively used.
  • Moreover, as illustrated in FIG. 9, in this embodiment, suppose that a distance (interval in the horizontal direction) between the center line S-S in the front and rear directions passing through the middle of the left front vertical plate 14 and the right front vertical plate 17 of the center frame 12 and the revolving center O of the center frame 12 is E. In this case, in this embodiment, this distance E is set smaller compare to the distance Ep of the configuration of the comparative example illustrated in FIGS. 10 and 11 as shown in the following formula 4:

  • Distance E<distance Ep   [Formula 4]
  • That is, as illustrated in FIG. 11, suppose that a distance (interval in the horizontal direction) between the center line Sp-Sp in the front and rear directions passing through the middle of the left front vertical plate 14′ and the right front vertical plate 17′ of the center frame 12′ and the revolving center Op of the center frame 12′ is Ep in the comparative example. In this case, the distance E in this embodiment illustrated in FIG. 9 is set smaller compare to the distance Ep in the comparative example (See Formula 4).
  • As a result, in this embodiment, balance (position relationship) between the left front vertical plate 14 and the right front vertical plate 17 with respect to the swing circle 3 can be made close to equal in the left and right directions, and torsion of the center frame 12 can be reduced.
  • According to this embodiment, the hydraulic excavator 1 has the configuration as above, and this hydraulic excavator 1 travels to a work site by running on a public road or the like by using the lower traveling structure 2 and then, moving the working mechanism 5 upward/downward while revolving the upper revolving structure 4 so as to perform earth and sand excavation.
  • Here, during the excavation or the like by the working mechanism 5, a large load such as an excavation reaction force or the like is applied to the left and right front vertical plates 14 and 17 of the center frame 12 which supports this working mechanism 5. On the other hand, regarding the center frame 12 according to this embodiment, the height dimension A from the front bottom plate 13 to the hole centers of the boom pin through holes 15A and 18A is set smaller than the height dimension B from the front bottom plate 13 to the front ends of the upper flange portions 31B and 32B of the I-section beams 31 and 32. As a result, the height dimension from the front bottom plate 13 to the foot portion of the lower boom 5A can be reduced, and a twisting moment, a bending moment and the like applied to the left and right front vertical plates 14 and 17 from the lower boom 5A can be suppressed by that portion.
  • Thus, it is no longer necessary to provide a reinforcing member between the left and right front vertical plates and the front bottom plate or to constitute a box-like form front part sides of the left and right vertical plates (center beam), as in the conventional art and the size and weight of the center frame 12 can be reduced. Moreover, the height dimension of the entire hydraulic excavator 1 can be reduced by the portion by which the height position of the foot portion of the lower boom 5A can be reduced. Therefore, when a trailer on which the hydraulic excavator 1 is loaded runs on a public road, for example, this height dimension can be easily arranged within a range regulated by laws and regulations.
  • According to this embodiment, the horizontal direction distance D between the hole centers of the left and right cylinder pin through holes 16A, 21A, 19A and 22A and the hole centers of the boom pin through holes 15A and 18A is set larger in correspondence with the portion by which the height dimension A from the front bottom plate 13 to the hole centers of the boom pin through holes 15A and 18A is set small. Therefore, in this embodiment the distance dimension C between the hole centers of each of the cylinder pin through holes 16A, 21A, 19A, and 22A and the hole centers of the boom pin through holes 15A and 18A can be secured large. As a result, even if the height dimension A from the front bottom plate 13 to the hole centers of the boom pin through holes 15A and 18A is set small, the distance dimension C between the foot portion of the lower boom 5A and the base end portion of each of the boom cylinders 5E can be ensured large, and the force of each of the boom cylinders 5E can be effectively used.
  • According to this embodiment, the distance E between the center line S-S in the front and rear directions passing through the middle of the left front vertical plate 14 and the right front vertical plate 17 and the revolving center O of the center frame 12 is set small. Therefore, in this embodiment, balance (position relationship) between each of the left front vertical plate 14 and the right front vertical plate 17 with respect to the swing circle 3 can be made close to equal in the left and right directions. As a result, the swing circle 3 can receive the force applied from each of the front vertical plates 14 and 17 through the front bottom plate 13 in a state closer to equal in the left and right directions, and torsion of the center frame 12 can be reduced. That is, the center frame 12 can be configured advantageously in terms of strength.
  • In other words, if the horizontal direction distance D between the hole centers of the cylinder pin through holes 16A, 21A, 19A, and 22A and the hole centers of the boom pin through holes 15A and 18A is set larger as in this embodiment, an extended amount (overhung amount) to the front side of the base end portion of each of the boom cylinders 5E becomes large. However, in this embodiment, a shift amount (offset amount) of each of the boom cylinders 5E with respect to the revolving center O is reduced by setting the distance E smaller so as to ensure strength of the entire center frame 12.
  • Moreover, according to this embodiment, the front plate 20 connecting the front part sides between the left and right front vertical plates 14 and 17 is configured to be bent at two spots. As a result, in this embodiment, strength of the front plate 20 can be improved more compare to the front plate 20′ formed by being bent at one spot as in the comparative example illustrated in FIGS. 10 and 11.
  • In this embodiment, it is explained by citing the hydraulic excavator 1 provided with the working mechanism 5 having two-piece boom specification, in which the boom is divided into two parts, that is, the lower boom 5A and the upper boom 5B, as an example.
  • However, the present invention is not limited to the same, and can be applied to a hydraulic excavator provided with a mono-boom working device configured by a single boom, for example.
  • Moreover, in this embodiment, the wheel-type hydraulic excavator 1 having the wheels 2B was described as an example of a construction machine, but the present invention is not limited to the same, and can be applied to other construction machines such as a crawler-type hydraulic excavator and the like, for example.
