Description

The invention relates to a device for printing forms, in particular tickets, with a printhead and a print platen, with a continuous paper transport path in which at least one paper feed device is arranged and which leads on the operator side into an output tray, with a cutting device for separating connected forms and with a controller for the movements of the paper feed device, the printhead and the cutting device, the controller being connected to the controller detecting the position of a form.
In the known devices of this type, an endless web on which the tickets are pre-printed as form sections is passed step by step through the printer, printed with the data to be supplemented in sections, and finally a finished printed ticket is ejected after it has previously been cut off by a built-in cutting device . There are also ticket printers that work in pre-set mode, whereby an empty ticket is inserted into the machine on the operator side, printed there and then ejected again printed.
The object of the invention is now to provide a device for printing forms, in particular tickets, which can work both in continuous operation and in pre-insertion operation; i.e. that the task should include the printing of tickets that are introduced manually, as well as the printing and cutting of tickets that come from a perforated endless web. Both modes of operation can be used as an option, converting the printing unit when changing from one mode of operation to another is to be avoided. Furthermore, the ticket must be able to be printed over the entire surface, so that transport-related non-printable zones, as required by some known constructions, are not permitted.
To achieve this object, it is proposed according to the invention that the paper feed device consists of three feed units, namely a first drive roller set arranged on the operator side in front of the printed document, a second drive roller set arranged behind the printed document and behind it as a slide-in device for an endless track a tractor set that drives the drive roller sets and Tractor set of synchronous operation which is rectified with respect to its driving peripheral speed and can also be switched by the respective other feed units of independent reversible direction of rotation, that a switch operated by the control device is provided between the second drive roller set and the tractor set, by means of which a rectified secondary path with the tractor set being switched off is switched off Track section of the transport track to which the track section containing the drive roller sets can be connected. Instead of "tractor set", the expression "form tractor" and in the present case "barbed belt tractor" can also be used.
It is achieved by the invention that it is possible to work either in continuous operation or in pre-positioned operation without any retooling of the machine.
The structure and mode of operation of the device according to the invention are described with reference to the figures, which are to be seen as schematic exemplary embodiments. It shows:

The structure of the printer is first described with reference to FIG. 2. The ticket printer has a print head 1, which is fastened on a carriage 2. The carriage 2 is movably mounted transversely to the paper web; it is moved by a drive system, not shown. This is a so-called dot matrix printer, also called a matrix printer. A pressure roller 4 and the cutting roller of a cutting device 5 are movably mounted on the carriage 2. The printing takes place against a platen 6, one side of which is designed as a cutting edge.
The paper transport part consists of a continuous paper transport path 3 and a paper feed device. The continuous paper transport path begins at the rear on a guide plate 34, runs between a flap 33 and a tractor set 7 to a second drive roller set 9, between printhead 1 and platen 6 through to a first drive roller set 8 in an output tray 36. The interruptions shown in FIG. 2 this continuous transport path 3 by switches 11 and 10 can be canceled by moving this switch 11,10.
The paper feed device consists of three feed units, namely the first drive roller set 8 arranged on the operator side in front of the platen 6, the second drive roller set 9 arranged behind the platen 6 and behind it as a slide-in device for an endless track the tractor set 7. The drives of the drive roller sets 8, 9 and the tractor set 7 can be switched by the control device (not shown) from synchronous operation which is rectified with respect to its driving peripheral speed to an individual drive which is independent of the other feed units and reversible in the direction of rotation. The switch 11 is provided between the second drive roller set 9 and the tractor set 7, by means of which a rectified secondary track 36 can be connected to the track section containing the drive roller sets 8, 9 by switching off the track section of the transport track 3 containing the tractor set 7. The front switch 10, which is moved by a magnet (not shown), optionally connects, as shown in FIG. 2, a front hopper 38 to the transport path 3. The switch 11 is actuated by a spring-loaded lever 12, the roller 37 of which on a double disc 21 , which acts as a cam in a certain position. A further switch 13 is provided, which is also moved by a magnet (not shown) and in the position shown in Fig. 3 enables the ejection of, for example, a misprinted or damaged ticket 46.
As a pulse generator for the control device, the device contains light barriers, namely a first light barrier 14 in front of the first drive roller set 8, a second light barrier 15 behind it and a third light barrier 16 in the secondary path 36. The drive roller sets 8 and 9 and the tractor 7 are driven in this way, that the circumferential speeds can be the same, but each system can also be driven by itself while the other systems are at a standstill or without a drive. In one embodiment, a reversible DC motor drives the entire paper transport system, with the same circumferential speed being achieved in all three systems by suitable selection of the reduction. A total of three electromagnetic clutch-brake systems can either drive the drive roller set 8 or 9 or the tractor set 7 individually or in any combination. Furthermore, it is possible to make one of these systems without drive by de-energizing both the clutch and the brakes. These notes are only intended to express that it is possible to operate the device with a single drive motor, but with the aid of further machine elements.
Moreover, in the case of the drive roller sets 8 and 9, both rollers are each driven in opposite directions, the upper rollers being pressed resiliently against the lower rollers. This double drive is necessary in order to be able to transport multilayer paper webs, such as those used in particular for flight tickets, perfectly.
On the lower axis of the drive roller set 9, a clock disk 17 is frictionally attached, which has a slot per line connection, which is sensed by a sensor 18. A frame-fixed pawl 19, which engages in a corresponding ratchet disc of the clock disc 17, can hold the clock disc 17 in a position when rotated clockwise, while when rotating counterclockwise the clock disc follows the movement of the axis.
With the drive axle 20 of the tractor set 7, three systems are firmly connected, namely the double disc 21 and further timing discs 23 and 25. The double disc 21 actuates when the tractor set 7 rotates clockwise in a certain position via the lever 12 and a corresponding lever connection 39 the switch 11. The two adjacent disks of the double disk 21 can be rotated relative to one another and brought via a pawl 22 into a position in which semicircular cutouts 44, 45 (see FIG. 8) match and the lever 12 can engage.
The clock disk 23 has a slot for each line connection, the slots being scanned by a sensor 24. The further clock disk 25 has only one slot, which is sensed by a sensor 26. In the construction shown, the procedure was such that one revolution of the driven tractor wheel of the tractor set 7 corresponds to the transport by one form length. If this is not the case, the double disk 21 and the timing disks 23 and 25 are to be arranged on a separate shaft which is to be driven by the shaft 20 with a corresponding reduction.
Furthermore, several guiding devices are part of the design of the paper transport system. The parts 27 and 28 form the feed hopper 38 which is open to the operator. A spring-loaded pressure plate 29 adjoins this directly behind the first drive roller set 8, the right edge of which is pressed by the pressure roller 4 during printing against the surface of the printed material. An upper cover 30 of the middle part of the transport path 3 and the secondary path 36 has an inlet funnel on the print head side. The lower cover 31 of the transport track 3 and the secondary track 36 is interrupted by the switch 11. The tractor set 7 is covered by a flap 33 which can be pivoted about a bolt 32, the flap 33 pressing the paper against the spikes of the tractor set 7 from above.
Furthermore, a resilient rocker 35 is provided, which forms a transition to the platen 6 and can dodge when the cutting device 5 is set down (see FIG. 9). The completed tickets are presented to the operator in the ejection tray 36.
In the embodiment according to FIG. 1, the tractor set 7 is arranged horizontally. Furthermore, an electromagnet 37 is provided for actuating the switch 11, which is actuated by a further clock disk 46 and a sensor 47. 40 is a spring for holding the pawl 19. A paper web 41 is inserted.
4 and 5 and 6 show the sequence when creating a pre-cut ticket: FIG. 4 shows the beginning of the move-in. The operator presses a ticket 42 against the stationary drive roller set 8. The first light barrier 14 is darkened. After a short, adjustable time has elapsed, the machine retracts by rotating the drive roller sets 8 and 9. The ticket 42 is pulled into the machine to the right until the third light barrier 16 is darkened (FIG. 5). The feed movement is now stopped. The

third light barrier 16 is arranged such that the position of the ticket 42 is such that the bottom line of the ticket 42 can be processed. The switch 10 is now switched over, the drive motor is reversed and the printing of the ticket 42 begins, interrupted by line connections (FIG. 6), which are carried out by the drive roller sets 8 and 9, the now rotating clock wheel 17 taking over the control. When printing is complete, the ticket 42 is thrown into the output tray 36 by further actuation of the drive roller set 8. It is important that the tractor set 7 remains in the position in which the switch 11 is in its lower position during the pre-positioned operation.
For the machining of the endless web 41 shown in FIGS. 7, 8 and 9, all the feed units are actuated and the endless web is thereby pushed into the gap between the print head 1 and the platen 6. The double disc 21 presses the switch 11 into an upper position via the lever 12.
The endless track 41 is advanced so far that the left end has passed the drive roller set 8. In a practical embodiment, this is achieved in that the paper web 41 runs until a full form length to the left of the cutting edge, i.e. from the right edge of the counter surface 6. The motor is now reversed and so many line feeds are carried out until the top line of the form is in the printing position. It has proven to be practical if the drive roller set 8 is not driven, since this tightens the paper in the printing zone. Printing and line feed now alternate until the ticket is created (Fig. 8). The clock disk 23 is decisive for the line switching. When printing is complete, the form is transported in such a way that the cutting edge and the end of the sheet match, indicated by a signal from the touch disk 25. The cutting process now takes place (FIG. 9). The ticket 43 is then ejected via the roller set 8.
In the process just described, the single ticket is printed from below, but the endless ticket is printed from the top. The reasons for this arrangement are twofold: For a single ticket, a pre-printed bar code must be read on the lower edge of the ticket. The reader is also attached to the carriage 2, but is not shown. Since this reading is the first operation and must be completed before printing can begin, printing from the bottom is the fastest way for the single ticket. (It is determined by comparing the information read whether the correct ticket has been inserted.) In the case of endless tickets, when processing multi-layer sentences, an undesired bulging of the left end often occurs if the ticket was only pushed during line breaks. The operating mode described was therefore chosen, in which the free end of the ticket is only pushed when it is first pushed in and when it is pushed for cutting, while it is pulled during printing.
By changing the control accordingly, it is of course also possible to label the individual ticket from top to bottom.
10 schematically shows the control sequence for the movement sequences shown in FIGS. 4 to 9.
The names mean:
LI corresponds to 14, L2 is 15, L3 is 16,
Kl and B1 are clutch and brake for roller set 8, K2 and B2 are clutch and brake for roller set 9, K3 and B3 are clutch and brake for tractor set 7, T2 is the clock signal of parts 17 and 18,
T3 is the clock signal of parts 23 and 24,
TOP is the clock signal of parts 25 and 26,
VT is a feedback, not shown, which indicates the switching of the switch 11.
DR stands for the printing of a line.
SM stands for cutting off schematically.
W1 is energizing the switch magnet of the switch 10. MO is energizing the motor.
In the usual representation, 0 corresponds to LI, L2, L3, T2, T3 and TOF darkened sensor. For Kl / 2/3 and Bl / 2/3 and W1, 0 is de-energized. Motor running direction forward means transport from right to left. The specification t stands for a short waiting time. The symbol for a complete printing process is shown in the "Control commands" line. The first sequence involves drawing, printing and ejecting a single ticket. The second sequence comprises a full expiry for a ticket from the endless path, with the withdrawn position (VT) being taken as the starting point. If several endless tickets are printed one after the other, the process starts with the second FF1. The third sequence is retraction of the endless path to the VT position, this corresponds to switching the machine to pre-set operation.
The fourth sequence is a pull-in process using light barrier 15 (L2) according to Figure 8.
The feedback that is not important for the process is shown in dashed lines in the illustration.
