Description

description

Method and apparatus for processing pox

The invention relates to methods and apparatus for processing Browse according to the features of claims 1, 2 and 3

The DE 40 26 250 C2 describes a device for cutting a web into individual pattern

EP 0737936 A1 describes a rotating disk of a number of sheet-number APPARATE

The invention has for its object to provide methods and apparatus for processing pox

The object is inventively solved by the features of claims 1, 2 and 3

The advantages attainable with the invention consist in particular in that a sectional control carried out in a simple manner or a speed pulse can be lost, too, it is possible in addition to the payment operation with a single device a sectional control of feeders

Exemplary embodiments of the invention are shown m the drawings and are described in the following: FIG near

Figure 1 is a schematic representation of a number wheel,

Figure 2 is a first section through the number wheel,

3 shows a second sectional view of the number disc, Figure 4 shows a third section of the counter disk.

Fig. 5 is a schematic profile of a signal of a sensor.

A counting device 01 comprises a fixed disc 02 and a rotating counting disc 03 and a rotating with the counting disk 03 on shroud 04. Between fixed disk 02 and rotating counting disk 03, a slide bearing 06 is arranged.

This counting disk 03 is divided in the present embodiment, in six equal circumferential sections. Each peripheral portion has at its radial end to a segment 07, said segments being separated in the circumferential direction 07 by extending in the radial direction opening 08th This segment 07 is provided at a leading end with a nose 09 and its trailing end with a wedge-shaped depression. 11 The recess 11 is arranged on an underside of the segment 07, extending in the circumferential direction and increasing in width in the direction of the nose of a trailing segment 07. In this recess 11 a plurality of flow channels 12 for the supply of suction air.

In the region of a trailing end of the nose 09, a device 13 is arranged for the measurement of reflection on each segment 07th This device 13 comprises, for example a transmitter 14 and a receiver 16 and a receiver 16 connected to the evaluation device. In the present embodiment, transmitter 14 and receiver 16 as a light guide 17, for example consisting of glass fibers, are formed. These light guides are connected to a rotary joint 18th For example, this rotary joint 18, two in the stationary disk are arranged in circumferentially extending, kidney-shaped lenses 19. Each of these optics 19 focuses the optical system 19 along the incoming light in a small area. In this area, an end of a light guide 17 is arranged. A second end of this optical fiber 17 a sensor 22 is connected to a lighting device 21 and.

Each of, for example, six segments 07 thus each have a lighting device 21 and a sensor 22 is associated, is passed by means of which light guide 17 and light rays reflected from and to the rotating measuring point of the segment 07 of the counter disk 03.

it is also possible to provide only one common illumination device 21 for all measurement points and its own sensor 22 for each measuring point. Alternatively, the light guide 17 can all measuring points or groups of measurement spots are combined and supplied to a sensor 22nd

It is also possible sensor 22 and lighting device 21 to be arranged directly at the measuring point without light guide. Inherent power and data could then, for example, be transmitted by means of inductively operating rotary joints.

Sensor 22 and lighting device 21 can be united in a single component.

Instead of a plurality of segments 07 having counter disc 03 only one segment 07 is possible.

The operation of the described device is as follows:

A printing material is printed with a plurality of benefits 23 and separated after the printing in individual copies 23rd Each of these benefits 23 carries a printing image 24. This printed image 24 has a distance a26; a27 to a side edge 26; 27 of the utility 23. The side edge 26; 27 benefits 04 corresponds to a cut edge of the benefit 23. These benefits 23 is preferably securities, in particular banknotes.

A stack of superposed benefits 23, that individual sheets 23 is applied to the counter 01 so that a plane defined by the counter disk 03 plane is approximately parallel to a plane spanned by the utility 23 level. In this case, there is a corner of the stack such that both the nose 09 and the recess 11 of the rotating counter disc 03 sweep over the corner of the sheet stack.

Once an applied negative pressure recess 1 1 of a segment 07 passes over a corner of a panel 23, this corner is drawn into the recess 11 forming a bulge.

By rotating the counting disc 03, the recess 11 slides over the crown and 03 below penetrates the nose 09 of the counter disk in the space formed by the crown space between sucked benefits 23 and underlying benefits 23. The nose 09 therefore slides beneath the raised benefits 23 at along the underside thereof. Similarly, the region in the transmitter 14 and receiver 16 slides are arranged on the underside of the corner of the benefits 23 along. In this case, the two coincident in the corner edge regions between the side edge 26; 27 of the utility 23 and print image 24 of the utility 23, and the intervening printed image 24 detected as the reflection from the receiver sixteenth

It can be a window set 28 over a certain angle range in which the evaluation of the signals 29 or the illumination device is turned on 21st

The signals 29 of the receiver 16 are fed to the evaluation device. Due to the magnitude of the signal 29 in function of the time and peripheral speed of the counting disk 03 or the angular position of the counting disc, the distance a26; a27 at least one side edge 26; 27 of the utility 23 is calculated to print image 24th The signal 29 also provides a measure of the sensed by the receiver 16 on the benefits 23 range, ie, a length I23 of the benefits 03 and a length I24 of the printed image

24. It is thus controls a cutting accuracy.

In the present example, the signal 29 is in addition to the cutting accuracy for

Initiating a count used.

It is also possible to carry out any cut control and the signal 29 only for

to use trigger a count.

This signal 29 or from determined values ​​are compared with predetermined signals / values ​​and deviations from these values ​​tolerances provided with a further output signal for warning or control other processes.
