Description

  • Die Erfindung betrifft eine Einrichtung zum Adressieren von Zeitungen, Zeitschriften und dergleichen Druckprodukten gemäss dem Oberbegriff des Patentanspruches 1. The invention relates to a device for addressing newspapers, periodicals and the like printed products according to the preamble of claim 1.
  • Die Erfindung betrifft ebenfalls eine Versandstrasse mit einer solchen Einrichtung. The invention also relates to a shipping line with such a device.
  • Eine solche Einrichtung ist beispielsweise aus einer im Jahres 1980 erschienen Druckschrift der Firma AB Dick Company, Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA, unter dem Phantasienamen « Videojet-mailer bekannt geworden. Such a device is for example, a published in 1980 publication of AB Dick Company, Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA, known under the fantasy name "Videojet-mailer. Bei dieser Einrichtung werden die zu adressierenden Druckprodukte in mehr oder weniger freier Auflage auf einem Förderband und in Abständen voneinander unter den nach unten gerichteten Spritzköpfen des Tintenstrahl-Schreibers kontinuierlich vorbeigefördert. In this device to be addressed printed products are continuously conveyed past in more or less freely supported on a conveyor belt and spaced from each other under the downwardly directed spray heads of the ink jet recorder.
  • Die Ankunft jedes einzelnen Exemplars in den Schreibbereich des Tintenstrahl-Schreibers wird direkt durch einen elektronischen Detektor erfasst, der dann den Schreibvorgang auslöst. The arrival of each single copy in the writing area of ​​the ink jet recorder is directly detected by an electronic detector, which then initiates the write operation. Dadurch können zwar auch unregelmässige Lücken zwischen aufeinanderfolgenden Druckprodukten berücksichtigt werden, so dass jedes Druckprodukt in dem dafür vorgesehenen Bereich adressiert werden kann. This also irregular gaps between successive printed products can be considered, although such that each printed product can be addressed in the designated area. Die vorbekannte Einrichtung ist jedoch kaum imstande, z. However, the known device is hardly able z. B. den gesamten, in einer Schuppenformation anfallenden Ausstoss einer Rotationspresse synchron zu adressieren. To address as the whole, occurring in an imbricated formation ejection of a rotary press in synchronism. Dazu müsste entweder die Fortbewegungsgeschwindigkeit der Druckprodukte soweit erhöht, dh der Schuppenstrom auseinandergezogen werden, dass Lücken zwischen aufeinanderfolgenden Druckprodukten entstehen, oder aber es müssten die einzelnen Exemplare direkt im Schuppenstrom erfasst werden, was mit Schwierigkeiten und mithin mit Unsicherheiten verbunden ist. This would require either increased until the travel speed of the printed products, ie the overlapping stream are pulled apart, leaving gaps between successive printed products produced, or else it would have the individual items are recognized directly in overlapping stream, which is therefore fraught with difficulties and uncertainties. Es ist aber nicht etwa der Tintenstrahl-Schreiber, der im ersten Fall der Erhöhung der Fördergeschwindigkeit der Druckprodukte auf dem Förderband entgegensteht, denn jeder Spritzkopf eines heutigen Tintenstrahl-Schreibers (pro Adressen-Zeile ist jeweils ein Spritzkopf vorzusehen) vermag weit über 1 000 Zeichen pro Sekunde zu schreiben. but it's not about the inkjet recorder, which opposes the increase in the conveying speed of the printed products on the conveyor belt in the first case, because of the spraying head of today's inkjet recorder (per address line is provided in each case a spray head) can well over 1 000 characters to write per second. Es sind vielmehr die doch eine gewisse Masse und zugleich eine gewisse Verletzlichkeit aufweisen Druckprodukte selbst, die nicht ohne weiteres eine derartige Erhöhung der Fördergeschwindigkeit vertragen. Rather, they are the but a certain mass and at the same time a certain vulnerability comprise printing products themselves, are not tolerated without further such increase the conveying speed.
  • Darüberhinaus verliert bei der bekannten Einrichtung das den Schreibvorgang auslösende Signal nach der Auslösung des Schreibvorganges jede Bedeutung, weil die Reiativlage des Druckproduktes zur Fördervorrichtung (das Druckprodukt liegt - wie bereits erwähnt - in freier Auflage auf einem Förderband auf) unbestimmt oder zumindest nur momentan bestimmt ist. Moreover, the write operation triggering signal to the triggering of the write operation loses all meaning in the known device, because the Reiativlage of the printed product to the conveying device (is the printed product - as already mentioned - in the open pad on a conveyor belt) is undefined, or at least only currently determined , Dementsprechend ist der Nutzen dieses Signales nur auf den Schreibvorgang beschränkt. Accordingly, the benefits of this signal is limited only to the write operation.
  • Es ist daher ein Zweck der Erfindung eine Einrichtung der genannten Art zu schaffen, bei der Gewähr für eine saubere, gleichmässige Adressierung gegeben ist und bei der - wenn erwünscht - das Steuersignal zum Auslösen weiterer Operationen an den adressierten Druckprodukten auswertbar ist. It is therefore an object of the invention to provide a device of the type mentioned, is given in the guarantee a clean, uniform addressing and wherein - if desired - the control signal to trigger other operations to the addressed printed products can be evaluated.
  • Zu diesem Zweck weist die vorgeschlagene Einrichtung die Kennzeichen des Patentanspruches 1 definierten Merkmale auf. To this end, the proposed establishment of the characterizing part of claim 1 defined characteristics.
  • Eine Versandstrasse mit der vorgeschlagenen Einrichtung ist im Patentanspruch 3 definiert. A shipping road with the proposed device is defined in claim. 3
  • Nachstehend ist ein Ausführungsbeispiel der Erfindung anhand der Zeichnung näher erläutert. Hereinafter, an embodiment of the invention is explained in more detail with reference to the drawing. Es zeigt : It shows :
    • Figur 1 eine schematische Seitenansicht der Einrichtung, und Figure 1 is a schematic side view of the device, and
    • Figur 2 eine schematische Seitenansicht einer Versandstrasse, der die in Fig. 1 dargestellte Einrichtung vorgeschlatet ist Figure 2 is a schematic side view of a shipping line that is vorgeschlatet the device shown in Fig. 1
  • Bei der in Fig. 1 dargestellten Einrichtung 10 erkennt man einen Einzelförderer 11 (etwa wie in der CH-PS 592 562 oder in der US-PS-3 955 667 beschrieben) der mit in Abständen voneinander an einem nicht dargestellten, in einer Hohlschiene 12 geführten Zugorgan befestigten Greifern 13 bestückt ist. In the illustrated in Fig. 1 device 10 to recognize a single conveyor 11 (such as in the CH-PS 592 562 or in US-PS-3,955,667 described) connected at spaced intervals to a not shown, in a hollow rail 12 is equipped guided traction element fixed grippers. 13
  • Jeder der Greifer 13 fasst die vorlaufende Kante eines Druckproduktes, hier den vorlaufenden Falz einer Zeitung 14 und bewegt diese in Richtung des Pfeiles 15. Die nachlaufenden Kanten der Zeitungen 14 gleiten über Gleitschienen 16. Die Formation, in der die Zeitungen 14 gefördert werden, ist somit eine aufgefächerte Schuppenformation S, in welcher der sogenannte « Schuppenabstand •, dh der Abstand aufeinanderfolgender vorlaufenden Kanten, in sehr geringen Toleranzen schwankt und über die gesamte Förderstrecke des Einzelförderers 11 gleich bleibt. Each of the gripper 13 holds the leading edge of a printed product, here the leading fold of a newspaper 14 and moves it 15 in the direction of the arrow, the trailing edges of the newspapers 14 slide over slide bars 16. The formation in which the newspapers are conveyed 14, thus a fanned imbricated formation S, in which the so-called "overlap distance •, ie the interval between successive leading edges varies in very small tolerances and remains the same over the entire conveying path of the individual conveyor. 11
  • Unter den Gleitschienen 16 ist ein Satz Spritzköpfe 17 einer als Ganzes mit 18 bezeichneten Tintenstrahl- Schreibeinrichtung angeordnet. Among the slide rails 16, a set of spray heads 17 is arranged a whole with 18 designated ink jet writing device. Die Spritzköpfe 17 sind von unten her auf die Schuppenformation S gerichtet. The spray heads 17 are directed from the bottom to the imbricated formation S. Jeder der Spritzköpfe 17 (gezeigt sind deren 3) ist einer der Zeilen der auf die Zeitungen 14 zu schreibenden Adresse zugeordnet. Each of the spray heads 17 (which are shown 3) is assigned to one of the newspapers 14 to write address lines. Die Spritzköpfe 17 sind daher auch in einer zur Zeichenebene rechtwinkligen Richtung zueinander versetzt angeordnet. The spray heads 17 are arranged, therefore, offset in a direction perpendicular to the plane towards each other.
  • Als Tintenstrahl-Schreibeinrichtung 18 (ink-jet-Drucker) kann im wesentlichen die unter dem Namen « videojet Serie 9400 » von der genannten Firma AB Dick Company, Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA, vertriebene Einrichtung verwendet werden. As ink-jet writing device 18 (ink-jet printer) can be used Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA, marketed device is substantially under the name "VideoJet Series 9400" from the company mentioned AB Dick Company. Diese umfasst eine Aufbereitungseinheit 19 für die zu spritzende Tinte, von welcher eine Druckleitung 20 zu jedem der Spritzköpfe 17 ausgeht, während von diesen je eine Rücklaufleitung 21 zur Einheit 19 zurückführt. This comprises a processing unit 19 for the ink to be sprayed from which a pressure line 20 to each of the spray heads 17 starts, while 21 returns from these depending on a return line to the unit 19th Die Einheit 19 sorgt dafür, dass jedem der Spritzköpfe 17 ein Tintenstrom mit einem auf einstellbare Weise konstant gehaltenen Druck zugeführt wird. The unit 19 ensures that each of the spray heads 17, an ink flow is supplied at a constantly maintained pressure in an adjustable manner.
  • Zum Aufteilen des zugeführten Tintenstromes in eine dichte Folge von Tintentröpfchen (im vorliegenden Fall von 66 000 Tröpfchen pro Sekunde) und zur Aufladung dieser Tröpfchen sowie zu deren Ablenkung in die gewünschte Richtung ist jeder Spritzkopf 17 über einen Satz Steuerleitungen 22 an eine Steuereinheit 23 gekoppelt. For dividing the ink supplied to flow in a dense sequence of ink droplet (in the present case of 66 000 droplets per second) and for charging said droplets as well as their deflection in the desired direction of each spraying head 17 is coupled via a set of control lines 22 to a control unit 23rd Diese Steuereinheit ist über einen Datenkanal 24 vom Ausgang eines Mikrocomputers oder Rechners 25 aktiviert, in vorliegendem Falle beispielsweise Modell PDP 11/03 der Digital Equipment Corporation. This control unit is activated via a data channel 24 from the output of a microcomputer or computer 25, in the present case, for example, Model PDP 11/03 Digital Equipment Corporation.
  • Der Rechner 25 erhält einerseits die von ihm zu verarbeitenden Daten über einen Datenkanal 26 von einem externen Adressenspeicher 27, in welchem beispielsweise die zu schreibenden Adressen auf Magnetband gespeichert sind. The calculator 25 receives on the one hand to be processed by it data via a data channel 26 from an external address memory 27, in which, for example stored addresses to be written on magnetic tape.
  • Nähere Angaben über den Aufbau und die Funktionsweise des Tintenstrahl-Schreibers 18 sind aus der von der genannten Firma AB Dick Company zum « videojet Tintenstrahi-Schreibers erhältlichen Literatur zu entnehmen. Further details on the structure and operation of the ink jet recorder 18 can be found in the literature available from the said from AB Dick Company to "VideoJet Tintenstrahi recorder.
  • Im Gegensatz zur bekannten Einrichtung wird hier der Rechner 25 nicht durch ein direkt von der Anwesenheit oder Ankunft einer Zeitung 14 in dem Bereich der Spritzköpfe 17 aktiviert. In contrast to the known device, the computer 25 is not activated by a directly on the presence or arrival of a newspaper 14 in the region of the spray heads 17 here. Vielmehr ist ein vom Einzelförderer 11 über ein Kettenrad 29 angetriebener Taktgeber 28 vorgesehen, der mit einem Tachogenerator 30 kombiniert ist und der über eine Signalleitung 31 dem Rechner 25 für jeden eintreffenden Greifer 13 ein Signal abgibt. Rather, a generator driven by the individual conveyors 11 via a sprocket 29 clock 28 is provided, which is combined with a tachometer generator 30 and the computer 25 for each incoming gripper 13 emits a signal via a signal line 31st Da beim Einzelförderet 11 nicht auszuschliessen ist, dass von Zeit zu Zeit ein Greifer 13 leer bleibt, beispielsweise weil zuvor ein defektes Exemplar entnommen wurde, ist dem Taktgeber 28 ein auf leere Greifer ansprechender Wächter 32 (z. B. ein durch das Druckprodukt 14 betätigter Arbeitskontakt) zugeordnet, der verhindert, dass der Rechner 25 durch das vom Taktgeber 28 gelieferte Signal aktiviert wird. Since it can not be ruled out at Einzelförderet 11, that from time to time, a gripper 13 remains empty, for example because before a defective specimen was taken out, is the clock generator 28, a 32 (on empty gripper engaging guard z. B. a operated by the printed product 14 contact) associated with that prevents that the computer 25 is activated by the clock 28 supplied from the signal. Dazu genügt es, falls der Wächter 32 ein Arbeitskontakt ist, dass dessen Ausgangssignal über eine weitere Signalleitung 33 im Rechner 25 zuerst einer Koinzidenzschaltung (z. B. zu einem UND-Gatter 34) zugeführt wird. For this purpose, it is sufficient if the guard 32 is a normally open contact that its output signal via a further signal line 33 in the computer 25 first a coincidence circuit (z. B. to an AND gate 34) is supplied. Somit ist sichergestellt, dass der Schreibvorgang nur dann ausgelöst wird, wenn die Greifer 13 tatsächlich ein Druckprodukt führen. This ensures that the write operation is only triggered when the gripper 13 actually result in a printed product.
  • Das vom Greifer 13 veranlasste und somit (nach der Validierung durch den Wächter 32) diesem zugeordnete, adressenspezifische Steuersignal wird nun nicht nur zum Auslösen des Schreibvorganges benützt, sondern auch im Rechner nach Massgabe eines Parameters der Adresse (z. B. der Postleitzahl) einem von mehreren Schieberegistern 35 je mit verschiedenen Durchlaufzeiten zugeführt. This prompted by the gripper 13 and thus (after validation by the guard 32) associated therewith, address-specific control signal is now not only used to initiate the write operation, but also in the computer in accordance with a parameter of the address (z. B. Area Code) a each supplied from a plurality of shift registers 35 with different processing times. Von diesen Schieberegistern geht je eine Signalleitung 36, 37, 38 aus. Of these shift registers each go from a signal line 36, 37, 38th
  • Nach Durchlauf des adressenspezifischen Signals durch eines der Schieberegister 35 hat sich der die Zeitung mit der entsprechenden Adresse führende Greifer 13 um eine bestimmte Strecke weiterbewegt. After passage of the address specific signal by one of the shift register 35, the newspaper has the further moved to the corresponding address leading gripper 13 by a certain distance. Wenn also das adressenspezifische Signal auf einer der Leitungen 36, 37 oder 38 ansteht, ist der entsprechende Schreibvorgang längst vorbei, aber der die entsprechende Zeitung führende Greifer befindet sich an einer von der Durchlaufzeit durch das Schieberegister abhängigen Stelle. Thus, when the address-specific signal on one of lines 36, 37 or 38 is present, the corresponding write operation is long gone, but the corresponding newspaper leading gripper is located at a frequency dependent on the transit time through the shift register location.
  • Dementsprechend (vergleiche Fig. 2) führen die Signalleitungen 36-38 zu entlang des Verlaufes des Einzelförderers 11 angeordneten Sammelstellen 40, 41 und genauer zu an diesen Sammelstellen angeordneten Steuerorgangen, die die Greifer 13 öffnen. Accordingly, (see FIG. 2) perform the signal lines 36-38 to along the course of the single conveyor 11 arranged collection points 40, 41 and more accurately arranged on these collection Steuerorgangen that open the gripper 13. In Fig. 2 ist für die Leitungen 37 und 38 das entsprechende Steuerorgan mit 42 bzw. 43 bezeichnet, während die Leitung 36 zu einer noch weiter stromabwärts vom Einzelförderer 11 liegenden Sammelstelle führt. In Fig. 2 the corresponding control element is designated by 42 and 43 for the lines 37 and 38 while line 36 leads to a further downstream from single conveyor 11 collecting point. Diese weitere Auswertung der vom Rechner 25 erzeugten adressenspezifischen Steuersignale ist jedoch nur möglich, weil diese nur von einem eine Zeitung führenden Greifer 13 aber nicht von der Zeitung selbst abgerufen werden. However, this further evaluation of the specific address control signals generated by the computer 25 is possible only because they are accessed by only one newspaper lead lug 13 but not by the newspaper itself. Nachdem diese adressenspezifischen Steuersignale den Schreibvorgang praktisch unverzögert ausgelöst haben, « begleiten sie gewissermassen den entsprechenden Greifer und veranlassen die Oeffnung und mithin die Freigabe des Druckproduktes an einer von einem Adressenparameter abhängigen Stelle. After this address-specific control signals have the write operation triggered virtually instantaneously, "accompany certain extent the corresponding grippers and cause the opening and consequently the release of the printed product in a manner dependent on an address parameter location.
