Description

The present invention relates to a printing press, in particular a web-fed offset printing press, with a first and a second pressure plate carrying Plate cylinder according to the preamble of claim 1.

An endless web of material, for example paper, is printed in printing machines. On The plate cylinder of the printing press carries a flat printing plate, for example one Offset printing plate, which is clamped on the cylinder in a known manner or in some other way Way is locked. An image to be printed is created by color that is different from the Printing plate is transferred to the paper. The plate transfers in offset printing machines first paint on a rubber blanket and then on the paper.

US 5,248,093 discloses a single-plate plate cylinder with a Locking mechanism that allows the individual plate to be attached.

US 5,678,487 discloses a locking mechanism which in connection with a Pressure bar for attaching a single plate to a single-plate plate cylinder is used.

However, these patents do not take into account the needs for large ones Newspaper printing machines and other printing presses where it may be desirable can provide more than one pressure plate axially spaced on the plate cylinder.

With these printing machines, each printing plate should be able to be aligned axially, i.e. correctly positioned with respect to the plate cylinder and each of the other printing plates his. In the single-plate cylinder systems described in the above patents, the Align the plate by moving the plate cylinder with respect to the substrate becomes. The problem of an independent register setting is not taken into account here.

In addition, the above documents do not allow independent Plate removal on a multi-plate cylinder.

It is an object of the present invention to provide a printing press with a plurality To create pressure plate-bearing plate cylinder, which is independent removal each individual printing plate allows registering while the other printing plates stay on the cylinder. An additional or alternative object of the present The invention is to provide a printing machine with a multi-plate cylinder, which an independent register setting of each individual plate enables. Another one an alternative or additional object of the present invention is to provide a simple process for applying printing plates to a multi-plate plate cylinder.

This object is solved by the features of claims 1 and 10. Further Features of the invention are contained in the subclaims.

According to the invention, a printing press comprises a plurality of printing plates, for example two, three, four or more printing plates, supporting plate cylinders (hereinafter also called multi-plate plate cylinder), which has a cylinder body an outer surface and a plate clamp, e.g. B. a clamping rail or Terminal block, which is clamped into a retracted or retracted Position and an extended position that releases the plate ends, wherein the clamping device preferably radially over in the extended position the outer surface of the plate cylinder extends out and in the retracted position for fixing the first and second pressure plates on the outer peripheral surface of the Plate cylinder is used. The press also includes a pressure bar next to the Clamping device, wherein the pressure bar for at least a first segment Press and hold the first printing plate on the plate cylinder and a second one Segment for pressing and holding the second printing plate on the plate cylinder includes, and the first segment is movable independently of the second segment.

Thanks to the segmented pressure bar with independently movable segments a single plate of the multi-plate cylinder can be removed if one Segment of the pressure bar is retracted. The other plates can continue from the other segments are held in a holding position or position can be positioned. This allows you to share with just a single Clamping strip for the plate cylinder the plates are completely independent of each other can be removed, reducing the complexity and cost of the multi-plate plate cylinder be significantly reduced since there is no separate clamping device for each the printing plates is needed.

The plate cylinder preferably comprises at least one of the individual printing plates each assigned register pin, so that the pressure plate in an axial direction can be aligned correctly. By making the present invention an extraction of each allows individual plate and therefore allows an adjustment of the register pins is in advantageously allows independent alignment of each plate.

The pins on the cylinder can advantageously be adjusted manually from the outside, when the clamping device is in the extended position.

The plate cylinder can advantageously also have at least one spring element Clamping a front and / or rear edge of a pressure plate include.

The pressure bar can be a plurality independently of one another, preferably pneumatically Actuate piston to move the different segments. The Pressure bar preferably acts on the rear edge of the pressure plate on the Clamping device is held. The front edge of the pressure plate is preferably on held the plate cylinder body.

According to the invention comprises a method for removing printing plates from a one in a retracted clamping position and an extended release position movable multi-plate plate cylinder having a common terminal strip carries at least a first pressure plate and a second pressure plate, following Method steps: contacting the first printing plate with an assigned first Segment of the pressure bar when the common terminal block in the extended, i.e. H. the non-clamping position, while the second pressure plate is assigned by the second segment of the pressure bar is not contacted; Moving the common Terminal block in the retracted position, i.e. in a position in which the Pressure plate ends clamped and the pressure plate is attached to the plate cylinder and one end of the second pressure plate is released; as well as removing the second Pressure plate from the plate cylinder.

By making a pressure contact between the associated segment of the Pressure bar and the first pressure plate, the first pressure plate can not be from Loosen the plate cylinder and is held in register while the Clamping device is in the extended position. Hence the second Printing plate can be removed independently of the first printing plate, even if both plates have a common clamping device.

The present method can also move all segments of the pressure bar away from the cylinder surface after moving the common clamp include.

Removing the pressure plate can cause the plate cylinder to rotate about one Include revolution. The second edge or the second end of the second pressure plate can then be removed. The second edge can be removed by returning it the first segment to touch the first pressure plate and extend the Clamping device can be supported in such a way that the second end of the pressure plate through the one that preferably moves radially out of the cylinder surface Clamping device is deformed.

If desired, a register pin assigned to the second plate can then be moved manually can be set, for example by axially moving the register pin.

While the first pressure plate is held by the first segment, a new or the same second printing plate can be attached to the plate cylinder. The second plate can be attached by inserting a leading edge of the pressure plate into one in the Periphery of the plate cylinder formed slot is inserted. The leading edge can to be clamped in the slot with the second segment, and the clamping device can be moved to its retracted position, creating the leading edge of the second Pressure plate and the first pressure plate can be locked. All segments of the pressure bar are then moved away from the cylinder and the cylinder is about one Turned so that the new second plate wraps around the cylinder. The Clamping device is then moved to the extended position, that of the first Pressure plate segment associated pressure plate holds the first pressure plate. The second Subsequently, segment preferably presses in the rear edge of the second plate the associated slot of the clamping device and then fixes the pressure plate in the area of the rear edge on the plate cylinder, so that the rear edge of the Clamping device can be held, which is retracted for this purpose. Both the first as well as the second plate are thereby held. All segments of the pressure bar are then moved away from the printing plates and the printing press is ready for Print with a new or realigned second plate.

The plate cylinder preferably carries four plates with it, each independently are interchangeable. For example, if the second plate is replaced the third and fourth plates are made in the same way as the first plate held.

The features of the present invention will become apparent in the following description preferred embodiments in connection with the attached, below listed drawings explained in more detail.

So that the plates are attached (clamped) or can be solved, the clamping device 5 by moving in the direction of Arrow 21, as indicated in Fig. 3, from a retracted position in one extended position moved.

The plate 20a and the plate 20b as well as the plates for the sections 3c and 3d can therefore be attached to the cylinder 3 by the clamping device 5 in an extended Position is moved so that the clamping device 5 radially over the surface 25 of the Cylinder 3 protrudes. The leading edges or leading edges of the plates 20a, 20b can therefore be positioned in such a way that they are preferably at an angle arranged section 29 of the cylinder body 27 of cylinder 3 in interaction stand, either with or without the help of the pressure bar 4, as shown in Fig. 2. The Clamping device 5 can then be retracted (clamping position) and the plate cylinder in Direction of arrow 7 are rotated so that the plates 20a, 20b around the Place plate cylinder 3. As soon as the rear edges of the plates are under the pressure bar 4 are located, the pressure bar 4 can the rear edges of the plates on the cylinder 3rd press on so that the rear edges with the angled section 28 of the terminal strip 5 in Can interact. This allows segment 4A and segment 4B to Pressure bar 4 to move on the cylinder 3, as well as segment 4C and segment 4D, so that the trailing edges of the four plates in the gap 6 in the plate cylinder 3rd can be pushed in. The clamping device 5 is then retracted (Clamping position) so that all four plates are attached.

So that the plates are correctly aligned in the axial direction, the Clamping device preferably has a register pin for each plate. As shown in Fig. 4 is, the clamping device has 5 register pins 30A, 30B, which for a correct ensure the axial register position of the plates. The register pins 30A, 30B are on the clamping device 5, but extend into the gap, so that they with the perforations 22a and 22b in the front edge of the plates 20a, 20b are still interacting, such as is shown in Fig. 2. (The rear edges of the slots can also be used Register perforations are provided or with perforations that are even larger than that Holes 22a and 22b.)

The register pins 30A, 30B, and those for sections 3c and 3d, can be manually can be adjusted when the clamping device 5 is extended by the pins axially be moved.

As shown in Fig. 8 (and schematically in Fig. 1), the pressure bar 4 has one Large number of segments 4A and 4B, as well as two further segments. Each of the Segments 4A, 4B are connected to a plurality of pistons 41, the pistons for each segment can preferably be operated independently, for example by four Air lines 46. Therefore, the pistons for each segment can be supplied with compressed air one of the lines 46 is provided to be moved towards the cylinder 3. Springs 44 can cause segment 4A to move away from cylinder 3. This can each of the segments 4A, 4B, 4C, 4D are operated independently.

Printing machine 10 is preferably operated as follows, if not all plates to be replaced or realigned. The panels are on sections 3a, 3b, 3c, 3d, attached. Section 3c may need to be realigned or that a plate change is desired for this section. The clamping device 5 is moved to an extended position while the segments 4A, 4B and 4D the pressure bar 4, the respective pressure plates against the clamping device 5, or in Push the area of the clamping device 5 against the plate cylinder 3. The rear edge of the plate arranged on section 3c, which is not held by segment 4C, because this remains retracted, detaches from the strip 5. The strip 5 is then retracted (Clamping position), so that the panels in sections 3a, 3b and 3d as well as the Front edge of the plate can be clamped in section 3c. The segments 4A, 4B and 4D of the pressure bar 4 are retracted. The cylinder 3 is then the opposite Direction 7 rotated so that the rear edge of the plate appears. After about one Rotation, the clamping segments 4A, 4B and 4D are reactivated and the bar 5 moved to the extended position. The front edge of the plate for section 3c can then be removed.

At this point the register pin for section 3 can be moved axially if this is is desired.

To insert a new plate, the front edge of the new printing plate is inserted into the Slot 6 inserted while the bar 5 is in the extended position, the leading edge interacting with the register pin to make a correct one Ensure positioning. The segment 4C of the pressure bar 4 can do this Support the insertion process, or the insertion can be carried out manually. The Clamping device 5 is then retracted around the leading edge and the other panels to clamp, and all segments of the pressure bar 4 are following it retracted. Then the cylinder 3 is rotated in the direction 7, so that the plate wraps around cylinder 3. The segments 4A, 4B and 4D of the pressure bar 4 are activated again while the clamping device 5 moves into the extended position so that the plates on sections 3a, 3b and 3d do not come loose. The rear edge the plate is then pressed into the gap 6 by the segment 4C and the Clamping device is retracted, whereby all four plates are locked. The Segments of the pressing element 4 are retracted and the cylinder 3 is ready for Operation with a new plate on segment 3c.
