Abstract

The method involves supplying a block of sheets (2) and covers (3, 3`, 3``) on a separate path by a processing device (4). The covers are connected with the block of sheets in a rear area in the processing device. The covers are fed to a storage (S) that includes a set of blowers on the path for the processing device, where the covers are fed to the blowers. The covers are identified by an identification device (18). The blowers are moved between an inlet transport device and an outlet transport device, and are tilted around an axis. An independent claim is also included for a device for executing a method of manufacturing printed products composed of a block of sheets and a cover.

Description

  • The invention relates to a method for the production of printed matter consisting of a book block and an envelope, comprising a processing device to which the book blocks and the envelopes are respectively fed on separate paths and in which an envelope in the back region is connected to a book block.
  • A method and a device of the type mentioned are known from EP 1 199 187 A known. The processing device is here an adhesive binder, which is designed as a turntable. On this turntable the book blocks are processed, for example milled, cut and glued. The book blocks to be processed and provided with an envelope are fed to an input station. This input station preferably has a buffer which retains book blocks when the perfect binder is not ready. The sequence of the book block order is changed.
  • At another station, the envelopes are fed. During production, it is common for an inspection from the transport line to the perfect binder to remove a book block and subsequently reload it. This, and the sequence change in the buffer, means that the envelopes can not be kept exactly in the sequence. In the production of books also small runs and also editions with only one copy are required. This is easily possible with digital printing machines, which enable a sequential production of printed sheets. It can thus be successively made different envelopes, even with different formats.
  • The invention has for its object to provide a method and an apparatus of the type mentioned, which avoids the difficulties mentioned. The inventive method and the inventive devices should allow the cost-effective production of short runs and also editions of only one copy with high efficiency.
  • The object is achieved in a generic method in that the envelopes on the way to the processing device are supplied to a memory with several compartments each controlled a specific subject and that in a compartment only an envelope is supplied. The controller is thus able to provide each book block with the associated envelope even if the book blocks are swapped in front of the processing device. This makes an automatic and very efficient production possible even for very short runs and single runs. The book blocks can be removed at any time for an inspection of the buffer section and be reintroduced later. Since the book blocks and also the envelopes are identified and controlled fed to the processing device, it is ensured that each book block is provided with the appropriate envelope. The identification of the envelopes and the book blocks can be done in different ways and also virtually. An advantage of the invention is also seen in the fact that it is comparatively easy to implement in terms of control technology.
  • According to a development of the invention, it is provided that the memory has a plurality of compartments and that the envelopes are assigned to the compartments with exact position. The control device thereby knows at any time in which compartment of the memory which envelope is present. With intelligent control, it is also possible to manage the storage spaces very efficiently. The controller may also decide when an envelope that has not received an associated book block is ejected or later re-fed. Thus, if a book block is detected during production at the input of the processing device, the controller requests the associated envelope and from the store this envelope is fed to the processing device. This ensures that the binding process combines the book block with the associated envelope.
  • A simple and secure identification of the envelopes is ensured if, according to an embodiment of the invention, the envelopes are each provided with a feature, such as a bar code or transponder. Instead of a barcode, other suitable features may be provided which can also be visually invisible and are visible, for example, with UV radiation.
  • The triggering of the printing of a book block in the printing press may be due to an identifying feature on an envelope.
  • According to a development of the invention, it is provided that the compartments are movable between an inlet transport device and an outlet transport device. For this purpose, the compartments can be pivotable or rotatable about an axis, for example. This makes it possible to use the memory very efficiently and to refill an empty compartment quickly and easily.
  • According to a development of the invention, it is provided that the compartments are rotatable about a common axis. The memory is preferably designed as a fan wheel, which allows a very compact and space-saving storage or arrangement of the subjects.
  • Further advantageous features emerge from the dependent claims, the following description and the drawings.
  • Embodiments of the invention will be explained in more detail with reference to the drawing. Show it:

  • The apparatus 1 shown in Figure 1 has a processing device 4, which is designed in particular as an adhesive binder, as for example in the EP 1 199 187 A is disclosed. The perfect binder may be formed as a turntable, but it is also another embodiment, for example, conceivable with a linear arrangement of the stations. In this processing apparatus 4, a book block 2 is provided with an envelope 3, respectively. The book blocks 2 are in a book block printing machine only schematically indicated here 42 produced. This book block printing machine 42 is preferably a digital printing machine with which the printed products 2 can be produced sequentially. Subsequent book blocks 2 may vary in content but also in format. Of these book blocks 2 can be made in the book block printing machine 42 and small runs and short runs as well as individual editions.
  • The book blocks 2 are fed to the processing device 4 at a first input station 5. The supply takes place with a conventional and not shown transport device, for example with conveyor belts. The first input station 5 has a recognition device 7, with which the book blocks 2 can be identified individually. The recognition device 7 has here, for example, a known per se reader with a suitable sensor. The identification feature is, for example, a barcode, not shown here, which is provided on the book blocks 2. Instead of a barcode, another feature may be present. This can also be visually invisible. The identification of a book block is fed to a control device 32 connected to the book block printing machine 42 which is connected to the first input station 5 and the processing device 4. The control device 32 thus knows in each case what is fed to a book block 2 of the processing device 4.
  • The envelopes 3, which are each connected to a book block 2, are fed to a second input station 6 of the processing device 4. This second input station 6 has a fan wheel 9 shown in greater detail in FIG. This is rotatably mounted about a shaft 12 on a frame 8. The fan wheel 9 can be rotated with a drive not shown here according to the double arrow 13 in both directions of rotation controlled. The rotation is controlled by the control device 32, which is also connected to the memory S. The fan wheel 9 has a plurality, for example, thirty compartments 10, each having two flaps 11. These flaps 11 are movable, so that the compartments 10 can be opened and closed for receiving an envelope 3. The envelopes 3 are preferably inserted radially into the compartments 10. It is here but also, for example, an axial insertion possible. The compartments 10 can also be replaced by other suitable means, for example by grippers and the like. Means for holding or positioning the envelopes 3 may be present in the compartments 10.
  • The input station 6 has an inlet conveyor 14 and an outlet conveyor 15. Both devices 14 and 15 are also controlled by the controller 32. The intake transport device 14 has belts 16 with which the envelopes 3 can be grasped and each of which can be fed to one of the compartments 10 in the exact position. By means of the outlet transport device 15, which also has belts 17 for transport, the required envelopes 3 are each taken from one of the compartments 10 and fed to the arrow 20 of the processing device 4. The discharge conveyor 15 is also controlled by the control device 32. The arrow 19 shows the direction in which the envelopes 3 are supplied to the memory S. Before the supply and preferably in the region of the inlet transport device 14, a recognition device 18 is provided with which the incoming envelopes 3 are identified. The identification takes place, for example, in a conventional manner with a reader not shown here. The envelopes 3 have for identification in each case features, for example a barcode or another suitable visible or visually invisible feature. The recognition device 18 is connected to the control device 32, which thus knows in each case what an envelope 3 is supplied to the memory S and to which of the compartments 10 this envelope 3 is fed. The control device 32 is therefore always informed about the occupancy of the memory S. The control device 32 also knows at any time whether and which of the compartments 10 are not occupied.
  • According to FIG. 1, the second input station 6 has only one fan wheel 9. However, embodiments in which the second input station 6 has more than one fan wheel 9 are also conceivable. These can be arranged in series or parallel to each other.
  • In front of the second input station 6, a processing station, for example a laminating device 29, which has a laminating roller 30 is arranged. In the laminating apparatus 29, the envelopes 3 can be laminated. Shown in Figure 1 are three different envelopes 3, 3 'and 3 ". Envelopes 3, 3' and 3" may be different in format, in terms of pressure and otherwise. The laminating device 29 may also be replaced by another suitable station with which the envelopes 3 are processed. Also conceivable is an embodiment in which the laminating device 29 is omitted and the envelopes 3 are thus supplied to the memory S unprocessed.
  • The envelopes 3 are printed in a digital printing machine 31. The printing machine 31 is connected to the control device 32. The control device 32 may also be the control device of the printing machine 31. Alternatively, the operation of the printing press 31 takes place on an attachment 41, which has display means and input means, not shown here. The article 41 can thus be used to enter the orders and to monitor the process. The printing machine 31 is preferably a digital printing machine with which the envelopes 3, 3 'and 3 "can be produced sequentially. However, the printing press 31 can also basically be a conventional printing press, for example an offset printing press.
  • The envelopes 3, 3 'and 3 "printed in the printing machine 31 are allocated in position to the compartments 10 of the memory S. The memory S is managed by the control device 32 and, as mentioned above, knows which envelope 3 at any time, in which compartment 10 , 3 'and 3 "respectively. The control device 32 ensures that all locations of the memory S are utilized as efficiently as possible. The control device 32 decides when an envelope 3, 3 'or 3 ", which has not received a suitable book block 2, is discharged from the store S or later fed back in. If a book block 2 is recognized during the production at the recognition device 7, then the control device 32 requests the associated envelope 3, 3 'or 3 "and the second input station 6 supplies this envelope to the processing device 4. In the processing device 4 then the corresponding Book block 2 with the provided envelope 3, 3 'or 3 "It is also possible that due to the detection of an envelope 3, 3' or 3" a print job for one or more book blocks 2 is triggered.
  • The memory S has a certain number, for example, thirty memory locations. To accommodate a production of, for example, thirty books, the memory S is filled with the corresponding number of envelopes 3. If, for example, a book block 2 is removed in front of the recognition device 7 for inspection, which results in a change in the sequence of the book block order, this book block 2 can be inserted again later. Such a sequence change can also take place when using a buffer. Depending on the control configuration, an envelope 3, which has been expected for thirty stations of the feeder processing apparatus 4, may be discharged to provide space in the store S to another subsequent envelope. The discharging takes place at a discharge station 36. At this, the printed products 37 provided with an envelope 3 can be discharged. As shown in FIG. 1, the control device 32 is also connected to the memory S and the laminating device 29 for signal transmission.
    Empty compartments 10, 24 are preferably refilled immediately after emptying, with the new envelope not having to correspond to the previous one.
  • The device 1 shown in Figure 2 differs from that according to Figure 1 only by the formation of the second input station 6 '. This has a feeder 33 which, for example, in the usual way has a take-off drum 34, withdrawn with the of a stacking device 43 envelopes 3 and the memory S are supplied. Also in this case, the envelopes 3 are identified by means of the recognition device 18. In the stacking device 43, a large number of envelopes 3 are stacked, so that each high capacity and performance is possible. The envelopes 3 are also preferably printed by a digital printing press in this case. The control is preferably also as described above with reference to FIG 1.
  • 3 shows a device 1 with a second input station 6 "according to a further variant The envelopes 3 are stored in this second input station 6 in a multiple-sheet feeder 39. This multi-sheet feeder 39 has one above the other and substantially tower-like a plurality of compartments 40 in which in each case preferably several envelopes 3, 3 'and 3 "are stored. These envelopes 3, 3 'or 3 "are withdrawn in a manner known per se from these compartments 40. This can be done, for example, with suction devices or the like, not shown here The multi-sheet feeder 39 also enables high capacity and performance. that required envelopes 3, 3 'or 3 "present or the memory S can be supplied.
  • 5 shows a device 1 with a second input station 6 '' according to a further variant, in which a memory S 'is provided which has a plurality of compartments 24 arranged linearly one after the other 24, a switch 25 is arranged, which has two positions, not shown here, in one position, an envelope 3, 3 '. or 3 "deflected into the corresponding compartment 24 and in the other case, the envelope 3, 3 'and 3" transported on. The supply of the envelopes 3, 3 'and 3 "to the compartments 24 takes place according to FIG. 7 with an inlet transport device 21. As can be seen, this is ascending and an identification device 23 is arranged in an upper region, which is used for the identification of the envelopes 3, 3 'or 3 "is used and which may be designed with respect to their function and training as described above. The direction of entry of the envelopes 3, 3 'or 3 "into the infeed transport device 21 is indicated by an arrow 26 in Figure 7. The transport of the envelopes 3, 3' or 3" to a ramp 35 of the processing device 4 takes place with an outfeed transport device 22, which horizontally transport the corresponding envelopes 3, 3 'or 3 "according to arrow 27. The storage S' has a frame 28 for the storage of the compartments 24 and the infeed transport device 21 and the outfeed transport device 22. The store S 'is also in this case This applies to both the switches 25 and the infeed conveyor device 21 and the outfeed conveyor device 22. The control of the envelopes 3, 3 'and 3 "in the memory S' is basically as explained above with reference to the memory S. The control device 32 is therefore always informed here, in which of the subjects 24 which envelope 3, 3 'and 3 "is present.
  • The device 1 shown in FIG. 6 has a second input station 6 IV according to a further variant. In this case, the feeder 33 already explained above in FIG. 2 is provided in front of the store S '. With this feeder 33, envelopes 3, 3 'and 3 "are likewise produced by the stacking device 43. deducted and fed to the memory S '. Instead of the feeder 33, the multi-sheet feeder 39 can optionally also be provided here. A laminating device 29 or another processing device can be arranged here between the feeder 33 and the input station 6 IV.
