Abstract

Towel dispensers installed in public washrooms have the disavantage of being cumbersome to handle, in particular when exchanging used towel rollers. In the disclosed process, the beginning of a towel is threaded for example by closing the lid of the apparatus, triggering a movement or rotation and guiding and rolling the towel after forming a loop. An appropriate device has roller (7, 8 ,11), a roller (7) mounted on the rear wall and a roller (11) mounted on the side wall of the dispenser (1). Conveyor and guiding elements (14; 15) separate clean material (2) from used material (2'). The invention may be combined with known components of already installed towel dispensers, providing the same with an automatic towel threading capacity.

Description

Threading of sheet strip material in a towel dispenser Hand¬

The present invention relates to a method according to the preamble of claims 1 and second

Known towel dispensers are installed primarily in much or publicly used washrooms and require intensive maintenance. They are also at their relatively kompli¬ established and according impractical dling in their hand.

It is therefore an object of the present invention, the spindles Einfä¬ and thus to simplify the replacement of the towel rolls and to provide suitable devices for realization.

this is solved by the features of claims 1, 2 and 3 according to the invention.

The advantages of the method according to claim 1, especially to at seen in the fact that this no complicated Manipu¬ lose during threading of the web material requires. The Necessary process is thus exchanged on changing or the Aus¬ the used against a clean role reduced.

Claim 2 has the advantage of an automatic and continuous voll¬ Wick one of the soiled towel end on; ", this does not need to be touched for this purpose.

The apparatus of claim 3 facilitates the handling considerably, the strip material is then passed yet by the closing operation and guided respectively and similarly in the process of opening is released. The practical embodiment of claim 4 serves to hygienic separation of used strip material from saube¬ ren.

The solution according to claim 5 allows the particularly simple chen start of the winding operation and also a correspondingly easy removal of the wound strip material from Wickel¬ body.

The further development according to claim 6 can be solved with permanen¬ th magnet, or electromagnet; any electromagnets have the advantage that they only

must be starting interval of the winding process in operation.

Easy to handle are also tubular rollers according An¬ demanding 7, they are left in the reverse feed of the cloth used advantageously in the roller and are accordingly easy to carry out.

The variant according to claim 8 results in a purely mechanical automation of the threading and re-start.

The preferred separation of the clean from the unused area described in claim. 9

The development according to claim 10 is particularly raumspa¬ rend and economical.

Hereinafter, exemplary embodiments of the invention with reference to drawings explained in greater detail; in all the figures, identical parts are provided with the same reference numerals.

Show it:

Fig. 1 a towel dispenser device with simplified Einfädel¬, with an open apparatus housing, in perspective view, Fig. 2 shows the dispenser Fig. 1 in the operating state, at schlossenem ge housing,

Fig. 3 shows a variant of a dispenser according to Fig. 1, with ei¬ nem additional actuating lever,

Fig. 4 is a tubular roller for receiving the sheet used, with sliding side flanges, as a variant to Fig. 1 to 3,

Fig. 5 shows a further variant for receiving the cloth with gliederartigem initial part used,

FIG. 5a is a simplified illustrated tool for inserting the initial part of Fig. 5,

Fig. 6 shows the various stages I-IV of rolling in the variant according to Fig. 5,

Fig. 7 shows a winding mandrel for insertion in a lateral lent open collar of the strip material and

Fig. 8 shows a variant of Fig. 7 in the form of a coil spring

In Fig. 1 is a simplified Apparateghäuse with 1 bezeich¬ net which, Example, on a wall of a public toilet, in addition to the advantage Lavabos is assembled with its rear side R.

Also indicated is a hinged lid la of which is designated by hinges lb open position, with la 'and displayed.

A well-known towel roll 2a, with band material 2 is here placed on a plurality of vertical, circular-concave cut ausge¬ bearing ribs 4; a further vorsprin¬ constricting rib 5 is used - both sides - as a support and bearing for a shaft 6 with a cylindrical deflection roller 7. The sheet 2 depends, for the right insert with its top part 20 with a sewn strip 20 'via a first performed pivot roller 19, freely movable.

The single axis 18 of the caster wheel 19 is at the end in each case two mutually opposite, swiveling bearing support 17 mounted, which is in turn guided, together with an inner, hollow cylindrical guide member 15 pivotally in the axle and bearings 26 in two roller carriers sixteenth The axle 26 drives a winding roll 27 having a groove magnetizations rule 25th

turned backwards here is a second pivot roller 11 with axis 12, which is rotatable bar with its bearing support 13 and an outer guide member 14 is also about the axis 26th

Among them are so-called smoothing rollers 23 and 24, the axes of which are freely rotatably supported 21 or 22 in rectangular roller carriers 28th

If a clean towel roll placed on the arcuate bearing ribs 4 2a, then this is positioned in accordance with

Fig. 1. Due to a short manually pulling on the top part 20 of the ferromagnetic strip 20 'in the same kind magnetic groove is pulled and held 25th

This process is character- ized in FIG. 1 by two arrows.

By a subsequent closing of the cover side walls la with S, 11 and 19 pivot about the rollers in the position shown in Fig 2 position. at the same time guided in the lid la by means of bearing-support 9 guide roll 8 is brought into the illustrated position and rotated and the axis 26; whereby the roller 27 -. obscured in Figure 2, bar vision panel in Fig. 1 - the tape material wound 2 or 2 '.

The two guide elements 14 and 15 move to their swivel path after another tape material, thereby forming in Fig. 2 indicated loop 3, which in a known

This depends from the apparatus housing 1 and is used for drying hands.

A preferred type of power transmission from the cover la to the pivot device is shown in Fig. 3.

. Compared with Figure 1 is here an additional actuating lever 30 can be seen, which is guided in a recess 31 by a bolt 34 with flange; be linear offset distance is characterized by a double arrow. On a front side 30, the lever has a toothing 32 which engages in a region at the axis 26 be translated spur 35th

A swing lever 44 is supported at its rear end on Schar¬ Nier lb and coupled via a driver 33 to the operating lever 30th

The actuation of the pivot lever in the direction of arrow B, wel¬ cher, as shown, with or without coupling to a lid la 'can be realized, thus resulting in a automati¬ rule threading of the strip material 2 and the initiation of take-up of the material 2 used' (cf. . Fig. 2).

At the same time the two guide elements 14 and 15 produce the necessary pull the strip material 2 to form a loop, and the separation of used strip material 2 'from the clean material 2. The distance and time limit for the cloth length, the well-known means may be used, mostly with suction cups and locking members work.

It is obvious that - after the complete user-wetting of the roller 2 a hand drying - by a Weiterbewe¬ gene of the actuating lever 30 and the pivot lever 44 via the usual operating position beyond this the restlo¬ sen collection of the strip material 2 used ' allows.

The drive of the lever 30 can take place in known manner by a spring or an electric motor, which are activated when the roll is unwound 2a and no longer rests on the bearing ribs. 4

The other variants described in the following Ausge¬ staltung the winding roll and the corresponding initial part of the cloth are depending on the drive of the dispenser - ma¬ Nuell, electrically or electromechanically with electronic control - more or less practical and adaptable to the specific case.

The tubular winding roller 27 ', FIG. 4 has two opposing longitudinal grooves 25', which are widened on the input side. In the groove 25 ', we the beginning part 20, with its ledge 20' is inserted and provided with a flange 36 with a driver Mitnehmer¬ 38th On the Gegen¬ side, the winding roller 27 obtains' a flange 37; Both flanges are separated by a square rod 39 with a

Bearing connected.

According to FIG. 5, the winding roll 27 has "a plurality of grooves into which the initial portion 20," which is configured in accordance with FIG. 5a articulately inserted.

To facilitate Einschiebvorgangs serve side

Guide plates 40 which, as indicated, by the control rod 41 are laterally displaceable. The necessary Vor¬ pushing movement of the top part 20 "via additional slide 43 which engage fins-slots 42nd

The actual reeling up process is shown in Figure 6 in phases I to IV. For reasons of clarity, only the active in the threading grooves 25 'and the adjacent thereto are respectively shown, and the Phase IV shows the regular winding.

It has been found that a fixed attachment of the Bandmate- rials 2 'of FIG. 5a when washing (in corresponding Ma¬ machines) can give rise to problems, as well as during the subsequent hot deficiency. It is therefore advisable to attach the part with the limbs like strips 20 'via a velcro tape on the tape material releasably.

up mandrels have proved particularly to FIGS. 7 and coil springs of FIG. 8.

According to FIG. 7 is located on the still clean strip material 2, a collar 2a 'with two-sided loop openings having a width A of the loop opening.

This covenant 2a 'can be set via Näh¬ th 2b trained as hem and interferes with washing and Man¬ not rules in a simple manner.

During commissioning of the towel dispenser thus a winding mandrel 27a is pushed into the collar 2a 'and positions the axis 26 accordingly. The winding mandrel 27a has its axis 26 longitudinal ribs 50 and transverse ribs 51; zu¬ the right side is a serving the transport gear, a spur gear 35. The winding mandrel 27a ensures a simple and siche¬ ren beginning of the winding operation for the formation of the roll with the used strip material 2 '.

The variant according to FIG. 8 requires a collar 2a 'of GE ringerer distance A', and accordingly represents a favorable further to Fig. 7.

In this case, a coil spring 27b is used, which has a single federbare side spring 52 which is axially movable in a Einfede- approximately bead-53rd The right-side on the axle 26 mounted fixed portion goes into a short

comprises closing spring 54 and a round about (domed) end portion 55.

It has been shown that with very little manual

Effort automatic threading can be avoided and that the reliability of the towel dispenser is higher.

Furthermore it is already known from FIGS. 1 to 3 that both the clean and the roller 2a can be used Bandmate¬ rial introduced into einfachster way into the dispenser or removed therefrom.

Also conceivable is a controlled, automatic ejection of the roll used in a suitable container therefor.

Due to the compact design of the shown dispenser, Hesse, the known displacement and / or Zeitbe¬ demarcations for the currently available towel directly on the axle of the winding reel mount or drive via toothed belts.

Likewise attenuators could be integrated, which compensate for the movement during acceleration and braking of the transport movement of the fabric here. Likewise, the potential for the formation of loops can over- shot at strip material be withdrawn zu¬ before its use in the device.
