Abstract

The aim of the invention is to extend the use of film coating in a coating module (2) in order to transfer imaging layers from a transfer film (5) to a stock. Said aim is achieved by disposing a film transfer module in a printing press used for single-color or multicolor printing of printed sheets. Furthermore, one or several coating devices (1; 2; L; D:IM) are mounted upstream and/or downstream from the printing press in the form of lacquer modules. Part or all of the surface of a subject from a film image and a printed image is coated by applying layers. The additional layers are used for protecting, drying, and generating optical effects.

Description

Manufacturing for packaging and advertising materials

The invention relates to a method and apparatus for producing coated packaging and advertising materials, including the transfer of imaging layers from a substrate foil on print sheets according to the preamble of claims 1 and 11. FIG.

It is known metallic layers on printing sheets by means of a method Folientransfer- manufacture. Thus, EP 569 520 B1 is a pressure 0 material and a printing apparatus using this material is described. Here, a sheet-processing machine is shown having a feeder and a delivery, said printing units and a Beschichtungsmo- dul are arranged between the two units. In at least one of the printing an adhesive pattern is applied by means of the flat printing process. This adhesive pattern is applied in a cold printing process and has a particular imaging subject to. In the printing unit following coating module having an impression cylinder and a press roller, a sheet guide is provided. This is designed in such a way that a film strip or a transfer film is guided through the transfer nip of the coating module between the impression cylinder and the pressure roller from a film supply roll. The foil strip is rewound on the outlet side after leaving the coating module. The transfer film has a carrier layer on which imaging layers such as metal layers, for example made of aluminum, may be applied. Between the metallic layer and the carrier foil, a release layer is provided, which ensures that the metallic layer from the carrier sheet is removable.

When transporting printed sheets through the printing unit of each printing sheet is provided with a glue pattern. Thereafter, the print sheet is passed through the coating module, wherein the bearing on the counter-pressure cylinder printing sheet with the film material is brought into connection by means of the press roll. The downwardly facing metallic layer comes into a close connection with the adhesive-coated areas on the sheet. After the further transport of the printing sheet, the metallic layer is adhered to only in the area of ​​the pattern provided with adhesive. The carrier film, the metallic layer is thus removed in the area of ​​the adhesive pattern. The power consumed in this way transfer film is rewound. The print sheet is delivered in the coated state.

It is to be used for example in printing units of printing machines known such coating modules. A disadvantage of the known devices is that they are not flexible. Further, the surface configuration by the differently designed surface characteristics of the various layers is often inhomogeneous.

The object of the invention is therefore hen a method and an apparatus vorzuse- means of which approximate layer of the transfer of an image-forming layer such as a metallization on a printed sheet safe, can be carried out economically and accurately, the apparatus for an expanded range of applications for producing variable surface properties should be manageable.

The solution of this object, in a method according to the features of claim 1 and an apparatus according to the features of claim. 11

According to the invention an integrated print image-forming of the film image portions and image portions are combined. To effect support a lacquer layer of clear or translucent or colored translucent paint is applied to the sheet.

Thereby the printed image is protected and supported in a special way in his gloss. Drying takes place very quickly in an advantageous manner, so that the processing is not delayed.

According to the invention a printing machine more flexible in its application, that a foil transfer module is integrated. The foil transfer module can be executed as part of a printing unit, as a separate workstation, as an integrated workstation or as actionable workstation.

In advantageous manner, the foil transfer module may be arranged depending on the application at different points within a printing machine.

Therefore, it is also possible in an advantageous manner to provide a plurality of coating modules within a sheet-processing machine in succession. In order for the application of various imaging coatings or metallization layers within a subject can be carried out sequentially. It is possible to transmit over a single adhesive pattern with all pattern elements, the imaging layers side by side.

It is also possible, a first adhesive pattern in a first coating module to be provided with a first imaging coating or metallization and overlying hereinafter another to apply the first enclosing glue pattern and provided with another imaging coating or metallization layer.

Furthermore, the foil transfer module can be arranged downstream in a sheet printing machine and a device for a perfector, so that an imagewise coating of the foil transfer sheet on a back side according to the preceding face side printing

To improve the coating properties of the image-forming layer can be applied by means of so-called UV-vacuum ink is applied by means of a printing unit for the adhesive in, for example, a lithographic printing plate.

In the following the invention will be illustrated in more detail with reference to figures.

They show:

1 shows a basic representation of a printing press with a film transfer mechanism and Figures 2 to 5 configurations for integrating foil transfer modules in a printing press.

1 shows a sheet-processing machine is, here is overall a printing press, consisting of one or more printing units, which are used for the following purposes:

- A to be coated sheet is in a first working step in an application unit 1 (printing unit, coating unit, or the like..) Provided with an imaging adhesive material pattern. For example, is printed in a printing unit of an offset printing machine over inking and dampening units 11, a printing plate on a plate cylinder 12, a printing blanket or the blanket cylinder 13, a printing sheet on an impression cylinder. 4 Applicators are also known as flexographic printing unit or varnishing unit configured used (see embodiment in Fig. 4). The adhesive may be by means of a

Metering system 21, which for this purpose carries a letterpress printing plate to create the imaging adhesive application on an anilox roller 22 and a transfer roller are transferred to a form cylinder 24 23rd

- In a second step, a transfer film is passed through a transfer nip 6 5 in a coating module 2 together with the printing sheet, said transfer sheet 5 is pressed in the transfer nip 6 against the printing sheet. The coating module 2 can druckmaschine correspond to a printing unit, a varnishing module, a base unit or a different type of processing station of a sheet-fed or be integrated in it.

The transfer gap 6 in the coating module 2 is formed by a press roll 3 and an impression cylinder. 4

The pressure roller 3 of the printing blanket cylinder 13 may be an offset printing unit or the form cylinder of a varnishing module of a sheet printing machine. The JE stays awhile back pressure cylinder 4 is provided corresponding to the respective processing station.

The pressing roller 3 is provided with a press fabric 10, or as a roller with a corresponding coating. The press fabric 10 and press-coating may, for example, as a plastic coating, similar to a rubber blanket or printing blanket, to be carried out. The surface of the press fabric 10, or press coating is preferably very smooth. It can also be formed of anti-adhesive materials or structures. Furthermore, a limited pressing surface can be provided on the pressing roller 3 or on the press fabric 10th These may be machined out of the surface of the press fabric 10 or it may be attached as a part surface of the material of the press fabric 10 in addition to the press roll. 3

- Furthermore, the coating module 2 connected downstream of a so-called Kalandrierwerk be provided when the coated printing sheet for increasing the adhesion of the coating or to increase smoothness and gloss of the printing sheet under an elevated pressure is to be überwalzt.

- Furthermore, the coating module 2 be provided downstream of further printing units of a sheet-fed offset printing press, when the coated print sheet is to be processed for printing with a mono- or multi-color image inline.

- Furthermore, the coating module 2 connected downstream of a so-called coating module may be provided when the coated printing sheet for improving the adhesion of the coating to protect the coating, to accelerate the drying and / or to increase smoothness and gloss of the printing sheet with an appropriate coating are provided should.

Within used for film transfer coating module 2, a web guide for transfer foils 5 is shown.

For processing eligible transfer foils 5 are built up several layers. They have a carrier layer on which an image-forming layer is applied by means of a separating layer. The release liner serves to facilitate lifting of the image-forming layer from the support layer. The imaging layer can for example be a metallized layer or a glossy layer or a texture layer or a colored layer or a one or more image pattern containing layer.

The transfer film 5 is allocated on a film supply roll 8 the coating module 2 on the side of the sheet feeder. The film supply roll 8 has a rotary actuator 7, which is needed for the continuous controlled feed of the transfer sheet 5 to the coating module. 2

Furthermore, in the field of Folienzu- and discharge guiding devices 14 as deflection or idler rollers, pneumatically acted upon conducting means, baffles o. Ä. Provided. So that the sheet of the transfer film 5 can be always flat out without distortion and kept in the same voltage relative to the press roll. 3

The transfer film 5 can hereby be guided around the press roller 3 (see dotted representation). The film web 5 can hereby be performed depending on the available space on one side of the coating module 2 in the supplying and discharging strand closely parallel to each other. The transfer film 5 may also be substantially tangential to the pressing roller 3 by or they are guided embracing only a small circumferential angle through the press nip 6, wherein it is supplied from one side of the coating module 2 and discharged to the opposite side.

On the downstream side of the printing unit, a film collecting roller 9 is shown on which the used sheet material is wound up. Again, provide a controllable rotary drive 7.

To improve the economics of the coating process is provided that the film feeding of the transfer film 5 is controllable by the sheet supply roller 8 to the transfer gap 6 and the film collecting roller 9, the transfer film 5 is then stopped as much as possible, if is to be no transfer of the imaging layer :

In responsive pacing systems on so-called dancer rollers 18, as are shown by way of example in Figure 1, the control of the gear is Drehan- 7 of the film supply rolls 8 and film collecting roller 9 may not be required. By means of the dancer roll 18 is also maintained the required film tension.

A further improvement of the film utilizing the described type results from the fact that the transfer film 5 is divided into one or several partial foil webs of narrower width. Thus, with appropriate control, by means of the device or devices for clocking of the film feed each of the partial foil webs, the utilization of the transfer film to be improved even at 5 different zonal lent long coating areas within an arc.

It is further provided to improve the coating process in the field of adhesive application and in the region of the film order dryer to provide 16th Thus can be pre-dried, in particular by means of UV curing, the plotted imagewise gene adhesive layer by means of a first dryer 16 (intermediate dryer I), so that the wear layer of the transfer film 5 adheres better. Furthermore, the adhesion of the embossed wear layer can be improved on the sheet by the action of a second dryer 16 (intermediate dryer II) by the drying of the adhesive is additionally accelerated.

There are several possibilities according to the invention said imagewise coatings by means of an imaging or metallization within working unit or pressure levels at different positions in a printing press to make.

Furthermore, an embodiment of an integrated foil transfer module for use in a sheet-processing machine is possible. Here, the coating module can be implemented two integrated into the structural unit of the applicator unit. 1 A sheet leading impression cylinder 4 has, for transport of printed sheets, one or more gripper fields with associated pressure surfaces and a correspondingly switched on to multiple screen. On the impression cylinder 4, an application unit 1 is arranged. The impression cylinder 4 is further a coating module 2 associated, having a press roll 3, which forms a transfer nip with the impression cylinder 6. 4 The transfer gap 6 is the coating-gap of the applicator unit 1 on the counter-pressure cylinder 4 in Bogenlaufrich- processing downstream. In this way, an integrated foil transfer module is formed, which has two work stations, which are used for the following steps. The printing is performed in such a foil transfer module in a very advantageous manner through all the necessary cleavage sites in a single gripper bite, while it rests on a single counter-pressure cylinder. 4

The coating module 2 or integrated foil transfer module is adapted essentially to provide a printing sheet before printing with an image-forming layer such as a metallization layer. Within the coating module 2 or integrated foil transfer module receiving sheet-processing machine, z. B. an offset sheet printing press, the coating module 2 or integrated foil transfer module can however also be placed at any other location within the machine. This is to allow that the desired imaging layers, such as metallization layers, both before and after can also be performed as well as layers between the application of Druckfarb-.

With the help of the device described are high-quality packaging or

Advertising material can be finished in an effective manner.

In principle, the arrangement of the coating module 2 or of the inte- grated foil transfer module allows the attachment of a film pattern made of metal or effect film on a print sheet.

Depending on the quality of the printed material, it may be useful or necessary that the substrate is pre-coated to match the quality requirements of finishing its surface. For this purpose, at a corresponding Druckma- machine the first printing unit and the application unit 1 and the coating module 2 or the integrated foil transfer module connected upstream or more coating modules L, which allow to apply a primer layer on the sheet. In mounting the foil pattern after an offset printing ink, a conventional adhesive similar to be used. Similarly, a UV adhesive may be used. In both cases, a pre-drying of the adhesive layer can be done.

When applying the film pattern from the transfer film 5, it can be heated by means of appropriate devices in order to facilitate the resolution of the imaging layer or metallization layer from the foil carrier and thus to improve the transmission of the film pattern.

After application of the film pattern, a color image can be printed on the film image. For this purpose, conventional offset printing inks or so-called foil inks or so-called UV inks can be used in the respective printing units. The drying effect and the adhesion of the conven- tional inks on the film image here is relatively poor because they dry to a large extent by so-called ink setting. Foil colors are generally oxidative curing inks that adhere better, but also require a relatively long drying time. UV printing inks are used in order to achieve a rapid drying using a UV dryer.

Depending on the type of used for the colored image on the film image creation printing ink, it may be necessary for the further treatment of the sheet to close a drying process. Here is important that has the printing sheet by the quasi glued film image did a certain Inhomogeni-. It is therefore a good dose of drying energy required.

Effectively can be protected from damage or contamination, a not yet dried sheet carrying a foil image and a color image by a layer of lacquer is applied. It is possible disper- onslacke to use so-called primers in combination with water-based coatings or so-called UV coatings. By means of such fast-drying paint layers can be the one hand protect well, the adhesive and ink layers may cure under the finished lacquer layer provided with a coating of a film image and print image printed sheet. On the other hand, the surface of such a printing sheet is characterized additionally refined. The surface also gets a very desired gloss effect in addition to a more even appearance. Here, the surface of the film image to oxidative influences is additionally protected.

The paints used are transparent or translucent and may be clear or colored. By means of corresponding color lacquer combinations such. B. from conventional inks or using a so-called primer and a UV-paint can, the surface of the sheet be provided with areas of different gloss degree loan.

following production sequences can be specified from the described process steps:

a. Pre (with compensation or protective medium, possibly in coordination with the adhesive properties) b. Adhesive application (with conventional or UV adhesive) c. Possibly. Pre-drying of the adhesive d. Foil application (possibly under heating up of the transfer film) e. Possibly. Drying the adhesive f. One or more color printing, a color image, including the regions of the film order (with a conventional offset printing ink or paint or foil UV ink) g. Possibly. Intermediate drying of the printed ink image h. Applying a gloss or protective layer of transparent lacquer (with dispersion varnish or a primer in combination with dispersion varnish or UV varnish) i. Possibly. Final drying of the finished coated printing sheet

As conceivable variants of the mentioned production steps below some variants are shown in more detail. I. On a simple, non-smooth substrate a leveling compound is applied in a coating module, which makes the surface smooth and resistant. In connection with the subsequently applied adhesive for the film image is particularly adherent areas for the metallization result. The printing sheet is, after application of the

Image film printed with a multicolor print image of film color. This particularly applies to printed sheets with a high surface portion of the film image. The color image dries by oxidation and is not protected. It has a good gloss, but is relatively rough to the touch.

II. On a smooth printing a print motif of a UV adhesive for the film image is applied, which can be between dried. To the subject an adhesive film or metallization layer is transmitted and, if necessary, between dried again. The print sheet, after the

Applying the film image printed with a single or multi-colored printed image of UV ink. This applies to printed sheets with a low to high surface portion of the film image. The color image is completely dried by means of a UV dryer, but is not protected in the surface. The printed sheet has good gloss and shows at

Touch a very good smoothness.

III. On a smooth printing a print motif of a conventional adhesive for the film image is applied to a film or metallization layer is transmitted. The printed sheet is then reacted with a single- or multi-color print image from a conventional offset printing ink printed (print sheet with low to high film portion). The color image is optionally dried by a dryer. On the sheet a layer of a non-visible to the primer adhesive is applied and switching thereafter protected by a layer of UV lacquer. Thereafter, a final drying can take place. The printed sheet has a very good gloss and is very smooth to the touch on. The gloss effects of the film areas are lightly damped and thus egg subjected nem visually appealing compensation effect. The print sheet is now dry and processed further.

IV. On a smooth printing a print motif of a UV adhesive is applied to the film image to which a film or metallization layer is transmitted. The printed sheet is then reacted with a one- or multi-colored printed image of UV ink printed (print sheet with low to high film portion). The color image is optionally dried by means of a UV dryer and protects by a layer of UV-paint overall. Thereafter, a final drying can take place. The printed sheet has a very good gloss and is very smooth to the touch on. The gloss effect of the slide area, especially of films with iridescent effect or refracting effect is supported and clearly emphasized their effect. The print sheet is now dry and processed further.

In Figures 2 to 5 show different possible combinations of the assignment of coating modules 2 and applicator units 1 for a printing machine for carrying out the production process described for packaging or advertising material are shown schematically.

The printing machine shown may be in all configurations shown for a feeder AN provided film transfer modules or printing units D, one or more coating modules L be connected upstream to the same layer, the application of a training to allow primer layer or a different type of pre-printed sheets

In all configurations shown the printing units can be connected downstream of one or more coating modules D L in front of a boom AU. Making it possible to apply a single layer or multilayer transparent and thereby clear bright or colored topcoat. Between such coating modules L between a dryer may be located. Figure 2 shows in principle in a conventional configuration. A sheet feeder AN of ßogendruckmaschine commissioned by one and then a coating module 2 is initially downstream. The coating module 2 follow re-order printing units D of the sheet-fed press. A sheet delivery AU completes the configuration.

By means of this configuration can be made so an imagewise coating with metallized film on the blank sheet. Thereafter, a multi-color print image can be applied over this coating. Similarly, a full-surface coating with metallized film can be produced, which can be over-printed in the printing units D below by means of the coating module. 2

It is indicated that a coating module 2 can be also disposed downstream of the printing units D in front of the sheet delivery AU, wherein the coating module 2 upstream printing unit D may serve as a commission. 1

By means of this arrangement, a subsequent lamination or the support of a metallized imagewise coating without overprinting is possible for example. For this, the color should be pre-dried.

Figure 3 shows a similar configuration as Figure 3. In this case are arranged downstream of an integrated coating module IM of the sheet feeder at two foil transfer modules. Here, within a unit of work both a coating module 2 as well as an associated application unit 1 is arranged (see also Fig. 2). Thus, according to a previously mentioned method of the bildmässi- ge behalf of two different, side by side, but each necessary cross-coatings are made. The arrangement of an integrated coating module IM is particularly useful if two foil transfer modules are to be arranged directly after each other at least.

4 shows a flexible variant for a printing press with further improved properties of the further processing of printed sheets is shown. The film transfer module is designed as an add-on module AM ​​here. Such attachment module AM ​​is preferably designed as a transportable unit, and can be placed onto a standardized substructure UB of a printing unit D of the press. For this coupling mechanisms are accordingly necessary, which can be displayed in many ways. A substructure UB typically includes a frame in which a sheet transport drum and an impression cylinder 4 are supported one on the other assigned. Optionally, a blanket cylinder 13 of an offset printing unit or a form cylinder 20 may be respectively associated with a paint Modules the impression cylinder 4 on the base. The blanket cylinder 13 or the form of cylinder 20 can be used in conjunction with the Beschichtungsmo- dul 2 as a pressing roller 3, with a corresponding covering is to be mounted 10th Corresponding clamping devices are present on both cylinder types.

5 shows a further developed variant is shown. The printing machine illustrated comprises a so-called turning device W according to the two sheet feeder AN subsequent printing units D. W turning devices are used in the sheet running of a sheet printing machine evert a single-sided or coated printing sheet so that its bottom is previous to the top, that can be subsequently printed or coated.

In the configuration shown, an applicator 1, and a coating module 2 align themselves with the turning device W. Afterwards eng AU are possibly until Bogenausle- provided several additional printing units D.

Thus, with such a printing machine, each print sheet can first be switched from its rear or printed in two colors, then turned, then coated with a metallized layer imagewise and subsequently printed again multicolored. An application example of this are greeting cards with jewelry deposits of metal foil on the image side.

The configurations shown are exemplified. As part of the modularization of the foil transfer modules, such as those set forth above in detail, the expert can find easily other applications. LIST OF REFERENCE NUMBERS
