Align unit 315a, 315b move along the direction of arrow from the state that the mode according to the reduced width of the paper of S10 moves, and return to the holding fix of S11.
Carry out the action of illustrated S1~S11 repeatedly, thus, paper piles up and accumulates on the disc mechanism from ejection port 304.
At this moment, the rear end of the paper of pile shape is by the 1st limiting part 311 alignment restrictions, and the align unit 315a about the left and right sides is passed through, 315b alignment restrictions are fitly piled up.
A series of like this paper from image printing assembly A, receives end signal according to the page or leaf sequence stack, finishes stacking procedure.
Then, embed assembly B, send paper at next step and pile up by a pile conveyer assembly.
T1~T4 among Figure 17 A~17E represents the action of the 1st clamping conveyer 401, be positioned at paper both ends on the disc mechanism 305 about top clamp 403 and bottom jig 404 all by drive motor M10 and tooth bar 413, move to the position that is suitable for paper size.
Then, be positioned at the state of the anchor clamps 403 of paper end face, move, contact with the end face of paper at the state of T3 by drive motor at T2.
Before and after this, drive motor M4 is moved upward tooth bar 406, and the anchor clamps 404 that are positioned at the paper bottom surface are risen, and contacts with the bottom surface of paper.
In addition, at this moment, descend by drive motor M3 according to dish group 332, by the effect of sector gear 338, bracket panel 305c moves to the position of withdrawing from from paper, does not hinder the mode of holding action of anchor clamps 404 to consider.
The lifting action of the T5 among Figure 17 A~17E~T8 indicating panel group 332, T5 are represented to load the state of admitting paper, and dish group 332 is positioned at lifting position, and T6 is positioned at down position, the launching position that paper is piled up.
If by the rotation of above-mentioned drive motor M3, make the clockwise direction rotation of rotating shaft 334 along Fig. 6, then dish group 332 moves from lifting position (state of T5) and drops to launching position (state of T6).
Follow the decline of this dish group, the bracket panel 305c of wing is by the rotation of sector gear 338, and the clockwise direction rotation along Fig. 6 moves to paper and piles up the position of leaving.
After this bracket panel 305c moved, the 1st clamping conveyer 401 carried out the action of aforesaid T1~T4, holds paper and piles up, rotation by aforesaid drive motor M1 then, with dish group 332 synchronously, according to same speed, from T5 position (lifting position), drop to T6 position (launching position).
In the T6 position, the 2nd clamping conveyer 420 is made of main folder tool 421 and sub-folder tool 422 to be waited for.
The 1st clamping conveyer 401 moves along the diagram direction of arrow from the T6 position, the paper on the dish group 332 is piled up to the 2nd clamping conveyer 420 sent.
The 1st clamping conveyer 401 leads to tunnel-shaped guide rail 402 along guide rail 408, moves by the drive motor M1 with tooth bar 434 engagements.
Then, from dish group 332, send the state of the T7 that paper piles up, the 1st clamping conveyer 401 stops, and dish group 332 begins to rise towards lifting position by the reverse rotation of drive motor M3.
Meanwhile, the 2nd clamping conveyer 420 rotary driving motor M6 (with reference to Figure 10 A) move to the anchor clamps 421a side that is relatively fixed with floating holder 421b.
Then, shown in the image pattern T8 like that, dish group 332 returns to lifting position, paper is piled up by the 2nd clamping conveyer 420 and is held, in addition, the 1st clamping conveyer 401 begins to recover action along the diagram directions of arrow.
In recovering action, with the 2nd clamping conveyer 420 simultaneously, lower clamp 404 descends from the state of the figure T9 that holds paper and pile up, leaves (state of T10) from paper, then, at the state of T11, last anchor clamps rise and paper leaves, and move to the original state of T12.
With the releasing action while of each anchor clamps, the 1st clamping conveyer 401 is from the state of figure T8, and along continuous straight runs returns to the state of T13, then, vertically returns to the state of T14.
According to the mode that the recovery action with the 1st clamping conveyer 401 walks abreast, the 2nd clamping conveyer 420 rotates to the state of Figure 10 A with drive motor M5 along clockwise direction.
Therefore, the 2nd clamping conveyer 420 is piled up state (flat-hand position) from T13 with paper, rotates to the vertical position of T14.
At the state of this paper being piled up the T15 that rotates to vertical position, the paper ora terminalis is carried out the post processing position that starching is handled, reference component 437 is set.
Therefore, remove direction, rotate the drive motor M6 of the 2nd clamping conveyer 420, paper is piled up from stationary fixture 421a, deliver floating holder 421b along clamping.
In the releasing of this floating holder 421b, main folder tool 421 is piled up with paper and is left, and sub-folder tool 422a, 422b are in the state that paper is piled up that holds.
Therefore, at the state of T6, main folder tool 421 does not engage, and paper is piled up by sub-folder tool 422a, 422b clamping, under the effect of the spring of describing by Figure 12 454,455, falls slightly.
Then, rotary driving motor M7 makes movable bogie side frame 429 shown in Figure 9 measure decline according to the rules.
Drop to the state of T17 at the 2nd clamping conveyer 420, paper is piled up with reference component 437 and is touched.
Because this sub-folder tool 422a, 422b constitute according to the mode that can rotate on axle 451, so at the state that holds by this sub-folder tool 422a, 422b, the inclination of the crooked grade that the paper that touches with reference component 437 is piled up is corrected.
The 2nd clamping conveyer 420 rotates above-mentioned drive motor M6 along the clamping direction after this crooked correction, hold paper by main folder tool 421 and pile up.
According to the action of this main folder tool 421, paper is piled up under non-rotary situation, remains on this posture.
" starching assembly "
Shown in image pattern 1A and the 1B like that, starching assembly E is arranged at aforesaid the 2nd clamping conveyer 420 and transmits in the vertical substantially path (being called " the 1st path " below) 100 that paper pile up.
Then, starching assembly E is coated on the bottom side ora terminalis S2 that the paper that holds by the 2nd clamping conveyer 420 is piled up with paste.
Starching assembly E by the paste dish 61 of admitting paste, rotatably be installed on the drive motor M11 of paste roller 62 on this dish, this paste roller 62 of rotation driving, the M12 that piles up the above-mentioned dish 61 of reciprocal driving along paper and constitute.
Figure 20 A and 20B represent its schematic diagram, are shorter than the bottom edge S1 that paper is piled up S according to the length (size) of paste dish 61, can follow the paste roller 62 that is mounted thereon, and the mode that moves along paper bottom edge S1 constitutes.
Also can constitute paste dish 61 according to the disk shape of the length of the bottom edge S1 that piles up greater than other paper, only paste roller 62 moves along the left and right directions of Figure 20 A and 20B.
Therefore, in illustrated occasion, paste roller 62 is formed in the paste coating member that paper is piled up the coating paste, and this roller is made of porous material, is impregnated with paste, piles up the layer of paste in the roller periphery.
Figure 19 A and 19B are the structure by the starching assembly E of the device of Figure 1A and cover paper conveyer constituent components described later, are assembled in the device of Figure 1A and 1B in mode removably.
Then, along illustrated X-X direction, the 1st path transports paper and piles up, and along the Y-Y direction among the figure, the 2nd path transports cover paper along the direction of arrow respectively.
Paste dish 61 is arranged at paper and piles up top with the bond pad 150 of cover paper, and along guide rail (bar) 66 and mobile guide, by the timing belt 65 parallel with this guide rail, M11 is connected with drive motor.
Therefore, paste assembly E can be along holding by the 2nd clamping conveyer 420, and the paper that remains on this position is piled up the bottom edge S1 of S, moves back and forth by drive motor M 11.
On the other hand, pile up S for paper, as aforementioned, lead by guide rail 428 according to the movable bogie side frame 429 that main folder tool 421 and sub-folder tool 422 (being generically and collectively referred to as " clamp member 420 " below) are installed, the mode that can move in the vertical direction constitutes, and this activity bogie side frame 429 is connected with drive motor M7 by tooth bar 434, pinion 435.
(with reference to Fig. 9 and Figure 10 B) then as aforementioned, by the positive and negative running of drive motor M7, hold the clamp member 420 that paper piles up and controls according to the mode that can move along the above-below direction of Figure 20 A and 20B.
According to Figure 27 A~27C, the paste coating method that the paper of the starching assembly E in the such scheme is piled up is described below.
Figure 26 A and 26B represent paper pile up S as the paper bottom side ora terminalis S1 of paste coating end face and the plane of paste assembly E, the paste dish 61 that constitutes the paste assembly is according to passing through guide rail 66, and by drive motor M11, the mode that moves back and forth constitutes, Figure 26 A represents to go to the road, and Figure 26 B represents to return the road.
Therefore, according to Figure 27 A~27C, when method for sizing was described, in illustrated structure, the bottom side ora terminalis S1 that paste roller 62 (paste coating member) is piled up paper moved back and forth.
Going to the road, crimping is piled up with paper in the roller surface, and paste is penetrated between the paper of its ora terminalis S1.
Then, return the road, be to form between the roller surface of paste roller and the paper ora terminalis S1 state in slightly little gap (slit), on paper ora terminalis S1, applying paste equably.
In this flow process, starching assembly E is moved to paper ora terminalis (U1) from original position (solid line).(calibration) distance from original position to the paper ora terminalis is calculated in the mobile size top corresponding to paper of this paper ora terminalis.
Then, clamp member 421 is driven by drive motor M7, measures decline (U3) according to the rules from holding fix (U1).
Drive motor M7 is made of stepping motor, from the initial position (original position) of clamp member 420, by the pulse control of motor, controls the amount of movement of this clamp member 420.
Particularly, be in the road of going to of starching assembly E, the outside (outer peripheral face) of bottom side ora terminalis S1 that paper is piled up and paste roller 62 is the state of crimping mutually.
That is, clamp member 420 descends, the paste roller of being fixed on the paste dish that slidably is supported on relatively on the guide rail 66 62, the bottom side edge S1 position overlapped that paper is piled up.
This lap is set by the crimp force of paper ora terminalis S2 and paste roller, and according to the distortion of paper ora terminalis, at random, paste is penetrated into the situation between the paper and sets at this crimp force between the two.
In addition, in illustrated occasion, the lap that goes to the road of starching assembly E is predetermined, and still, also the thickness that can pile up according to paper makes the lap difference, and it is big more to pile up thick more lap at this occasion paper, that is, crimp force increases.
In addition, the thickness of piling up about paper detects, and will be described later.
Pile up and the position of paste roller relation according to such paper, an end (right-hand member) of paste roller 62 being piled up from paper at the state of U3 moves to the other end.
At this moment, paste roller 62 rotates along the illustrated direction of arrow.
If paste roller 62 at the state of U4, arrives another ora terminalis (left end) that paper is piled up, then stop to stick with paste roller 62 and starching assembly E.
Therefore, the clamp member 420 of the 2nd clamping conveyer is risen, turn back to home position (with reference to U5).
Then, make driven roller M7 rotation once more, clamp member 420 is descended to move between paper bottom side ora terminalis S 1 and paste roller 62, forms the position of less clearance (slit).
Identical with last time, by the pulse control control amount of movement of drive motor.
According to the slit between the surface of the bottom side ora terminalis S1 of this paper and paste roller 62 is the degree that layer contacts with ora terminalis S1 of piling up that is formed at the lip-deep paste of paste roller, and mode is obtained the paste amount that is attached to the paper side by experiment, is set fit value.
After the setting of this condition, paste roller 62 recovers to move to the state of U6.
If like this, carry out paste infiltrate coating action between the paper of pile shape, after work is applied in this coating, between paper ora terminalis and paste roller, form the gap, apply action, then on the paper of pile shape, between paper in, on pile shape end face, form the paste layer of homogeneous thickness.
In addition, in this occasion, remaining paste adheres in the left and right edges portion of the ora terminalis of piling up at paper, has the situation that necessarily requires to carry out this edge treated.
U7 represents this edge treated, goes to the road and returns on the road above-mentioned respectively, carries out starching and handles, and then, E turns back to edge part with the starching assembly, removes too much paste layer.
By the blade roller, reduce the paste layer of edge part.
Then, starching assembly E is moved to another distolateral (with reference to U8), remove another distolateral unnecessary paste.
According to above release paste coating, then starching assembly E shifts to home position (state of U11 and U12), holds paper equally and piles up.
Clamp member 320 is also recovered to the home position.
In addition, in the illustrated embodiment, at not making paper pile up bottom edge S1 and paste roller surface state of contact, form the occasion in slightly little gap, the paste coating action of returning the road to starching assembly E is described, but it also can make paper pile up bottom edge S1 and paste roller surface state of contact, is set in less than both the contact pressure of contact pressure that goes to the road.
In this occasion, starching assembly E is going to the road equally, and paste is infiltrated between the paper, is returning the road, and the end face of piling up at paper (back) forms paste surface layer uniformly.
