Description

The invention relates to a single driven Folder for a rotary printing press after the preamble of claim 1.

In conventional rotary printing machines becomes one or the folders of a Main drive powered by a propshaft and synchronized.

An example of a known drive is schematically shown in Fig. 1. Here, the Coupling from the longitudinal shaft 1.10 to the folder, comprising a knife cylinder 2, a collecting cylinder 3 and a jaw cylinder 4, mechanically via a longitudinal shaft gearbox 1, various Tooth levels 1.20, a 1.23 wave to one with a Bevel gear 1.24 coupled intermediate gear 1.3 or alternatively on the coupled with a bevel gear 1.24 Knife cylinder 2. The cylinders 2, 3 and 4 are with each other mechanically coupled via spur gears. The disadvantage here is that the cylinders 2, 3 and 4 to each other and opposite the longitudinal shaft 1.10 in the area the backlash can take any position. The reason for this are effective moments on the cylinders such as cam controls, cutting stroke and the like. As a result, unavoidable irregularities make themselves felt in the folding tolerances.

Examples of the drive of the folder by means Coupling to the longitudinal shaft of the printing press are from DE 41 27 321 A1, DE 26 14 665 A1 and U.S. Patent No. 5,405,127. DE 41 27 321 shows that a coupled to the longitudinal shaft folder additionally have a motor associated with it only can.

Folders coming from a drive motor can be driven individually, the mechanical only with the folding apparatus is coupled, are known from DE 20 46 131 A, EP 0 567 741 A1, GB 21 49 149 A, the postpublished EP 0 699 524 A2 and further the article "Rotary machine drive without longitudinal shaft - a rediscovery of Hamada "in newspaper technology December 1991 pages 78-80 and the Article "Color management systems, computer-to-plate and shaftless driven four-high towers: highlights to the DRUPA 95? "by Boris Fuchs in Deutscher Drucker No. 14-15 / 13-4-95 pages w46 ff known. From the latter Publication and also from EP 0 699 524 A2 is the assignment of a separate engine for the folder and its own, another engine for the fold superstructure out.

The invention has set itself the task to provide a folder in which the register setting with simultaneous prevention, at least Reduction of backlash in gears Drive train of the folder individually for the Folder can be made.

This task is accomplished by the subject of claim 1 solved.

A folder of a rotary printing machine with at least one jaw cylinder and a Knife cylinder points to the single drive of the folder a drive motor, the mechanical only coupled with the folder. Backlash problems This must be counteracted only in the area of the folder while the drive motor for the Folder for driving the other components the printing press is electrically synchronized. Of the Single drive allows the folder independently from the position of the printing units to any one Folding position to rotate and thereby the cutting register to drive in an easy way. This advantage is special when feeding paper into a back-up folder useful in such a back-up folder via a reference zero position of the drive the cut register can be approached. By the invention, the folding tolerances are minimized.

Furthermore, the invention allows Folder because of the no longer needed mechanical Coupling with the printing units the free arrangement the folder to the printing units and advantageously also to a folding structure and a folding superstructure, without causing additional costs.

Because a mechanical connection between the folder and the folding structure or the folding superstructure preferably does not exist, is also the Freedom in configuring these three functional groups elevated. For example, an assignment of just a construction and a superstructure to two Folders possible.

According to the invention drives a drive motor via a mechanical coupling, preferably a motor-side pinion and a cylinder-side spur gear, on the jaw cylinder. This can be high Gear ratios single-stage and space-saving be realized. By eliminating a longitudinal shaft gear box and all drive components, like shafts and gears, including idler, there is a cost reduction. Because of his comparatively large inertia and small Operating moments is in this embodiment the drive in a particularly quiet place of the Folder coupled. The train on the collecting cylinder, the friction moments of the cylinder bearings, the Zugwalzenantrieb and the cutting stroke create a moment which counteracts the driving motor. hereby can be prevented by the scheme of the drive motor a flank change in the drive from motor-side pinion to the cylinder-side spur gear and between the cylinder spurs of cylinders of the folder takes place. Another advantage is that by the arrangement of the drive on the jaw cylinder and the always equal tooth contact a change between driving and braking Engine operation is prevented, and the engine only in the driving area is running. Such a change of business otherwise it would easily damage the drive of the folder being able to lead. At the appearance of pulse-shaped Operating torques that cause disruptive edge changes in the drive, it is enough, by an extra moment on the jaw cylinder the tooth contact especially between the pinion and always keep the spur gear in the same place. Such a moment is opposite to the drive torque comparatively small and can, for example, by a introduced electric brake or a friction brake become.

It can also work on the jaw cylinder be driven by a toothed belt.

The required gear ratio from the drive motor to the gear is single-stage, so that a space-saving solution is created.

If a first and a second folder are provided, the following setup variants are preferred:

Both folders can be installed at the plant level be placed, in particular as a left and a right folder version in so-called Back-to-back arrangement or as a double folder with a delivery on the same side of the machine. The former possibility is particularly narrow with accordingly short transfer ways for the Train. The second variant, i. the double folder, offers the advantage that both displays are on one side of the machine and two identical folders can be used. Both setup variants enable operation on one level.

It can also be a first folder on plant level be placed while a second folder to offset in the machine cellar, i. at reel changer level, stands. This will be short Bahnüberführwege and unhindered access to the Scoring achieved. If this case a folding structure and a folding superstructure on the machine table, that is, on the Plant level, set up, results in a low Height.

Finally, both folders can work be set up in the basement, as a double folder with separate and on the machine table stored structure and superstructure or as a double folder in a common superstructure and superstructure. Both variants draw because of the arrangement in the machine cellar due to their low height above the machine level. You are further, arranged on one level, easy to operate.

In all the above embodiments can for several folders with advantage only one construction and a superstructure may be provided.

In a further, with the aforementioned embodiments advantageous combinable embodiment invention, the folder itself is movable. Be the folding structure and the superstructure on put a yoke, so can a back-up folder, if such is provided if necessary instead of Hauptfalzapparats be inserted. This is where depending on which shift method used is needed, no additional space in the system. Becomes the machine table itself is used as a yoke construction, and the folders are placed in the basement, so This also achieves a low overall height.

It can also basically the Falzaufbau and the folding superstructure movable on a Jochkonstruktion be arranged.

Particularly advantageous is the invention with the drive disclosed in EP 0 644 048 A2 Combine control concept.

Hereinafter, preferred embodiments of the invention will be described with reference to figures. Show it:

Fig. 2
a single driven folder,
Fig. 3
a first setting variant for two folders, wherein a folding apparatus is arranged in a machine cellar,
Fig. 4
the variant of FIG. 3 in more detail,
Fig. 5
a second variant, in which several folders are arranged side by side in the machine cell and
Fig. 6
a third variant for several folders, which are each arranged to one side to the left and right of a printing unit.

In Fig. 2 runs a Bedruckbahn B by a Kappvorrichtung 20, a train pair of rollers arranged behind it 21, via a collecting cylinder 3 with associated Knife cylinder 2, is cut across there and then from the collecting cylinder 3 to the jaw cylinder 4 and from there to a serving as a means of delivery Paddle wheel 5 pass. Instead of the paddle wheel 5 can also be an endless circulating between two rollers Transport means with grippers for the folded Printed copies should be provided.

According to the invention, the jaw cylinder 4 directly driven by a drive motor 10. The mechanical coupling between the drive motor 10 and the jaw cylinder 4 is a motor-side Pinion 10.1 and a cylinder-side spur gear 4.1 formed.

FIG. 3 shows a printing press, which is an example of the gain in terms of flexibility the installation possibilities of the self-propelled Folder is. In this embodiment is a Folder F1 in the machine cellar on the same Placed like reelstands R1, R2, R3 and R4, while printing units D1, D2 and D3 on one above lying plant level 100 in a row stand. Above the folder F1 is a Folding structure 30, on one or more levels has at least one funnel, arranged and on stored in the folder. The rebate components 30, 40 are arranged between the two printing units D2 and D3, so that the printing tracks from two sides enter.

In addition to this first folder F1 can be provided second folder. This second one Folder is also preferably in the machine cellar or at the plant level 100, preferably approximately in alignment with the lower rebate superstructure 30 arranged.

The Bedruckbahnen can optionally a the folders are fed. In the example of Fig. 3 is only the standing in the machine cell folder F1 in operation. If two folders provided are, some of the printing pastes can continue promoted Bedruckbahnen different funnel levels the folding structure 30, as dashed example shown, are supplied. From an upper funnel level get the longitudinally folded Bedruckbahnen then to the second folder, while in a lower folder Funnel level 30 folded Bedruckbahnen continue the first folder F1 are conveyed.

Fig. 4 shows the list of said second folder F2 at the plant level 100th The first folder F1 is again in reel changer level, on the same level as the ones not shown Reelstands placed while the second folder F2 next to the machine to a machine side is arranged interpretatively. The folding structure 30 with a or more funnel levels is on the machine table stored.

Both the storage and the drive of the Falzaufbaus 30 takes place in the example of Figure 4 mechanically regardless of the drive and the storage the folders.

Fig. 5 shows two side by side on a plane - on the machine table or on reel changer level - arranged folders F1, F2. Only the first Folder F1 is in operation while the second folder serves as a back-up.

The supply of Bedruckbahn or webs to the folder F1 is again on a on a Yoke J recorded folding structure 30. The yoke J is stored independently of the folders F1 and F2, whereby an exchange of the first folder F1 against the back-up folder F2 is enabled. Especially easy is the replacement of the folder F1 against the back-up folder F2, if the two folders can be moved (F1 → F1 'or F2 → F2 ').

In Fig. 6 is another, in terms of flexibility demonstrating the configurability of the printing press Example shown. The printing press has six printing units D1 to D6, of which three each Printing units seen in the web conveying direction one behind the other arranged and two such rows of three next to each other are set up. Left and right of each last printing unit D1 or D4 of the two printing unit series of three are folders F1, F2, F3 placed in such a way, that one of the folders, F2, between the two last printing units D1 and D4 is arranged so that Bedruckbahnen of these two printing units the centered, in this case common Folder F2 can be fed. The other two Folding machines F1 and F3 are among the still free outsides each of the printing units D1 and D4 arranged.

Above each of the folders F1, F2, F3 there is an associated folding structure with a former or folding funnels, while above the two next the folders F1 and F3 standing last Printing units D1 and D4 the required guide rollers and turner bars for feeding the printing presses are arranged. The display of the folded Printed copies can be uniform in machine direction respectively. But you can also, which in turn demonstrates the flexibility of the solution according to the invention, in the case of the two outer folders F1 and F3 to the sides.
