Description

  • The invention relates to an arrangement according to the preamble of claim 1.
    Such arrangements are known for the processing of so-called double-benefit products. These double-use products are formed, for example, with a saddle stitcher and stapled as a rule. In a cutting machine, also called a trimmer, these double-use products are trimmed with a leading back. Each double-use product produces two printed products that are trimmed on three sides. After the cutting machine, the trimmed printed products are conveyed in two synchronously running streams. For further processing of the printed products, these two streams are each fed to a further processing machine. These machines are in particular cross-stackers for forming packages or winding devices. In the stackers the printed products are stacked in a known manner. With the winding devices shingled streams are formed from the streams and these are wound by means of winding tapes to roles. These rolls can be stored and at the desired time be settled again.
  • DE 298 19 145 U1 describes a transport device for flat objects such as paper sheets, which has a first conveyor on which objects are supplied one above the other, and a second conveyor arranged at right angles to the first on which the sheets are transported, the conveyor means being a step form, where the sheets are waterfall promoted.
  • The invention has for its object to provide an arrangement of the type mentioned, which simplifies the processing of double streams and in particular the processing of double-benefit products. Nevertheless, a comparatively high performance should be possible.
    The object is achieved in a generic arrangement according to claim 1.
    In the arrangement according to the invention, the two streams are combined to form a common stream. This is achieved with stages at which the printed products are conveyed like a waterfall. Such stages or waterfall-like conveyor lines are also called bumpturn in technical jargon. These are known in the printing industry and are functionally reliable and manageable without great design effort. Since only one stream has to be further processed, only one further processing machine is required in accordance with which this stream is supplied. This simplifies the workflow and saves costs. For example, the printed products can only be bundled into packages in a single cross-stacker or rolled up on a winding roll.
  • If according to an embodiment of the invention, the arrangement is designed so that the common third current is a scale flow, it can be wound into a roll. The performance of the inventive arrangement is at least comparable with known arrangements of this type. For products with the DIN A5 format, it is possible to easily process 2x 13'000 copies per hour.
  • Further advantageous features emerge from the dependent claims, the following description and the drawings.
  • An embodiment of the invention will be explained in more detail with reference to the drawing. Show it:
  • Fig. 1
    1 is a schematic partial view of the arrangement according to the invention;
    Fig. 2
    a plan view of the inventive arrangement and
    Fig. 3
    schematically the formation of a common stream of two streams.
  • The arrangement according to FIG. 2 essentially comprises a first transport device 1, a second transport device 2, a saddle stitcher 18 and a cutting machine 5. In the here only indicated and usual saddle stitcher 18 so-called double-use products 13 are processed and preferably stapled with a conventional stapler not shown here on the back 21. The dual-use products 13 are printed with the information A and B for two printed products 3 and 4. A and B are usually the same and symmetrical.
  • The double-use products 13 formed in the saddle stitcher 18 are transferred to the first transport device 1, on which they are conveyed in the direction of the arrow 14 with leading back 21 and a cutting device 5, also called a trimmer, be supplied. This cutting device 5 has a front section 6 and two side knives 8, 10 and a central cutting knife 9 and stops not shown here. The double-use products 13 are trimmed in the cutting device 5 on the side and parallel to the back 21. With the central cutting knife 9, the double-use products 13 are cut along the indicated dashed line T. After the cutting device 5 are thus three-sided trimmed and collection-stitched printed products 3 and 4, for example, brochures, magazines and the like. The printed products 3 and 4 are respectively conveyed forward with the back 24. A front section 22 is thus trailing and the side cuts 23 extend parallel to the conveying direction according to arrow 14th
  • The printed products 3 form a first stream S1 and the printed products 4 form a second stream S2. Both streams preferably run synchronously with one another and, as can be seen, the printed products 3 and 4 are each spaced apart in the flow direction.
  • The transport device 1 has after the cutting device 5 according to FIG. 1, a transport member 15, for example, an endless belt. The transport of the two streams S1 and S2 ends at a front edge 7.
  • Transverse to the transport direction according to arrow 14 and after the edge 7, the second transport device 2 is arranged, which has a conveying direction, which according to arrow 25 is substantially transverse to the conveying direction of the transport device 1. The transport device 2 has a first transport member 2a and a second transport member 2b. These are formed for example by a conveyor belt 16 and a conveyor belt 17. But here are also other transport organs possible. The two transport members 2a and 2b are each driven by a separate controllable drive 19 and 20 respectively. As shown in FIG. 1, the first transport member 2a is slightly below and in front of the edge 7 and the second transport member 2b is located below a front edge 26 of the first transport member 2a. From the transition of the first transport device 1 to the second transport device 2 is thus a first stage and between the transport member 2 a and the transport member 2 b, a second stage is formed. Since the two transport members 2a and 2b are offset in height to each other, a double stage according to W1 + W3 is formed for current S1. The current S2 is fed via the stage W2, which corresponds to the drop height W1 + W3, on transport member 2b. The printed products 3 of the stream S1 pass to W1 via a further step W3, ie from the first transport element 2a to the second transport element 2b.
  • The conveying speed of the streams S1, S2 are indicated by arrow V1, the speed of the conveying member 2a by V2 and the speed of the scale flow S3 by V3. On the first conveying member 2a, the printed products 3 are offset from the speed V1 to the speed V2. The printed products 4 are converted from the speed V1 to the speed V3 of the conveying member 2b. The speed V2 is rectified as the speed V3, but much higher in magnitude, preferably about twice as high. The stages W1 to W3 are designed so that the two streams S1 and S2 combined to form a common stream S3 become. The stream S3 is here preferably, but not necessarily a scale flow. To achieve a largely aligned flow on the conveying member 2 b, adjustable stops 100, 101 are preferably arranged on this as well as on the upstream conveying member 2 a, adaptable to different formats.
    Subsequently, this formation of the common current S3 will be explained with reference to FIGS. 3a to 3h.
  • Fig. 3a shows schematically the first transport device 1 and the two transport members 2a and 2b of the second transport device 2. On the second transport device 2 are still no printed products available. On the first transport device 1, a first stream S1 with printed products 3 and a second stream S2 with printed products 4 as explained above, promoted. If a printed product 3 and a printed product 4 reach the edge 7 (FIG. 2), they reach the second transport device 2 via the step W1 or W2. The printed product 3 reaches the first transport element 2a and the printed product 4 reaches the second Transport organ 2b. Fig. 3b shows the arrangement in which the printed product 3 on the first transport member 2a and the printed product 4 are on the second transport member 2b. The printed product 3 has the speed V2 and the printed product 4 is converted to the speed V3. The speed V2 is considerably larger in magnitude, for example, twice as large as the speed V3. Via the step W3, the printed product 3 is conveyed to the second transport member 2b. Due to the higher speed V2, the printed product 3 is pushed over the printed product 4 and deposited thereon with a scale spacing D shown in FIG. 3a.
  • At the same time, the following printed products 3 'and 4' reach the edge 7 and pass through the step W1 or W2 onto the second transport device 2. The printed product 4 'becomes, with the scale spacing D, the printed product 3 and the printed product 3' likewise with the scale spacing D stored on the printed product 4 '. In this way, a third flow S3, which is a scale flow with the scale spacing D, is formed on the transport member 2b. The process is repeated for each product pair arriving at the edge 7. Of course, the printed products stored on the transport member 2b are conveyed continuously in the direction of the arrow 25 at the speed V3. The lines L1 to L4 in Figs. 3b to 3h connect edges of the same product and are only for understanding the workflow.
  • As already explained above, the two transport elements 2a and 2b are each driven independently of one another by regulatable drives 19 and 20, respectively. By setting the speeds V2 and V3, an optimum scale flow S3 can be set.
  • According to FIG. 2, a third transport device 11 is arranged downstream of the transport element 2b and, for example, likewise has an endless conveyor belt and a stop 12, against which the products of the third stream S3 are conveyed. This stop 12 causes a conversion of the current S3 by 90 degrees, whereby from a scale flow, a further scale flow S4 can be formed. In this scale flow S4, the backs 24 are in turn arranged in advance in the conveying direction as in the first transport device 1. The conveying direction of S4 is indicated in FIG. 2 by the arrow 28 and this is thus substantially parallel to the conveying direction of the first transport device. 1
  • The scale flow S4 is supplied, for example, to a winding device 27, which is merely indicated in FIG. 2, on which the printed products 3 and 4 are wound up in a shingled stream and fixed with belts 29. The printed products 3 and 4 can advantageously be addressed in S3 or S4 with an addressing device, not shown here. It is advantageous for this purpose that the printed products 3 and 4 have a defined sequence. However, the printed products 3 and 4 of the stream S4 can also be supplied to a stacker, not shown here, or to another device for packet formation. The inventive arrangement has the further advantage that tip and standard packages can be formed in any order. The stream S4 is preferably a scale flow. However, an embodiment in which the current S4 is a product current at which the following printed products 3 and 4 do not overlap is also conceivable. In principle, it is also possible to supply the stream S3 to a further processing device, for example a cross-stacker or a winding device. In principle, the current S3 can also be a current in which the following printed products 3 and 4 do not overlap.
