Description

  • The invention relates to a labeller for linerless labels according to the preamble of patent claim 1.
  • With the subject of DE 696 17 386 T2 a semi-automatic dispenser for linerless labels has become known, in which the printed adhesive tape is conveyed through the nip of a first pair of rollers and downstream of this conveying direction, a cutting device is arranged. In order to avoid accidental falling out of a cut-off label down from the downwardly open device, this device provides a holding device for the cut-off label. While it is apparent from the text of this document on page 9, it is preferred that for holding the labels during cutting and thereafter it is preferred that biasing means be provided for biasing the adhesive surface of a label in contact with a fastener.
  • However, this is not to bias means for generating a tensile stress in the longitudinal direction of the adhesive tape, but only that a holding means is provided to prevent accidental and unwanted falling out of the cut label down.
  • With the subject of WO 2005/023654 A1 Another labeler for linerless labels has become known in which, however, no tension on the label web takes place before engagement of the knife. This has the disadvantage that the knife impinges on an unstretched label web and this tolerance between the cut lengths of the label are to be feared. For this reason, this document uses a rotating knife, but this has the disadvantage that the engagement of the rotating in the conveying direction blade does not match exactly with the separating cut and therefore tolerances in the region of the separating cut are to be feared. It is therefore both slightly generates a tensile stress with the rotating blade and at the same time causes a separating cut, which is disadvantageous.
  • Therefore, said device does not cut at a standstill, but during the advancement of the label tape.
  • Incidentally, the same disadvantage also applies to the subject matter of DE 103 51 877 A1 in which, although a fixed knife is present, but in which the cutting operation is generated by a cam, which falls against the fixed knife and thereby takes the tape to be cut off.
  • The US 7293592 B1 shows a device for cutting linerless labels. In this case, an adhesive tape (20) is conveyed through a first pair of rollers (54, 58), subsequently cut off by a cutting device (42) and forwarded by a second pair of rollers (62, 66). The cutting device consists of a roller (42) to which a cutting blade (44) is attached at one position. The direction of rotation of the cutting device (42) is the same as that of the transport direction of the adhesive tape (20). As a counterpart or anvil, the cutting knife (44) has a rotatable roller (38) installed on the opposite side of the cutting device. The cutting process is thus carried out by a rotary knife.
  • The invention is therefore based on the US 7293592 B1 the task of keeping a tape to be cut off in the cutting device under tension, as well as to ensure a clean cut between the cutting blade and the counter blade always.
  • To solve the problem, the invention is characterized by the technical teaching of claim 1.
  • A basic feature of the invention is that upstream and downstream of a pair of rollers is arranged so that the cutting blade is arranged in the space between a first and a second pair of rollers, and that a tensile stress on the cut off tape in the region of the cutting device between the first and the second nip of the first and second roller pair is generated.
  • An essential feature of the invention is that the cutting blade moves linearly in the cutter against the counter blade.
  • With the given technical teaching, there is the significant advantage that rotary cutting blades can now be dispensed with for the first time and instead a linearly movable cutting blade can be used, which has the advantage that it can be cut when the adhesive tape is stationary. This results in a particularly accurate precise cut, which takes place reliably at the desired location of the adhesive tape, without large tolerance intervals are given.
  • This results in a high accuracy of cut and a precise transfer of the cut label on a downstream transfer device.
  • This now makes it possible for the first time to bring particularly precisely cut labels onto a transfer device.
  • According to a further feature of the invention, it is provided that the transfer speed of the transfer device is slightly greater than or equal to the delivery speed of the second outlet side of the cutting device arranged nip.
  • This ensures that the transfer device receives the discontinued from the second nip, cut labels without the risk of damming and crumpling and the labels are hereby still applied at a distance, so that a certain predefined distance between the individual labels is ensured on the transmission device.
  • It is important here that the cutting device is arranged between the first and the second roller pair and is cut in the state. This ensures that the label is not tilted and distorted during cutting, because it is held and fixed by the outlet side second nip.
  • This is a significant advantage over the prior art, in particular the WO 2005/023654 A1 because there was arranged only on the outlet side of the cutting device consisting of a rotating knife, a suction device which receives the cut label. Such elaborate suction devices can now be dispensed with according to the invention and an absolutely tilt-free position of the cut-off label in the nip following the cutting device is achieved.
  • In the present invention, it is not critical how the tensile stress is generated between the first and second nip, with the aim of tensioning the adhesive tape to be cut off in the region of the cutting device. There are various possibilities that are claimed in combination or in individual position with each other as essential to the invention.
  • According to a first embodiment, it is preferred if only the first inlet side nip is driven, again it is irrelevant whether only one roller of the roller pair is driven by the roller nip or both rollers of this roller pair are driven synchronously.
  • The same applies to the outlet side arranged second pair of rollers, which serves the second nip.
  • It can also be provided that this second pair of rollers is driven and the drive speed of this second pair of rollers is slightly larger than the drive speed of the first pair of rollers.
  • In a further embodiment of the present invention, it is provided that all four rollers of the two pairs of rollers are driven synchronously by a single drive motor. This results in the advantage of a particularly cost-effective drive and the desired tensile stress is now inventively achieved in that the diameter of the rollers of the second nip is slightly larger than the diameter of the rollers of the first nip.
  • This is - because of the achieved greater peripheral speed - a tensile stress on the tape to be cut off, without the need for further drive means or control means. It is therefore a particularly simple and reliable arrangement.
  • According to a development of the present invention, it can also be provided that the single drive motor does not synchronously drive all four rollers of the two roller pairs, but only for example the respective upper roller or respective lower roller of the respective roller pair.
  • However, the synchronous drive of all four rolls is preferred because it prevents the glue, which passes over a roll, in each case one roll pair runs, does not lead to an unacceptable and unwanted slip on the tape.
  • Namely, if - as provided here - is used in start-stop operation, a slippage of a non-driven roller in the adhesive layer could lead to an undesirable change in the structure of the adhesive layer and thus an optically visible and undesirable mark on the adhesive layer in the later cause sticked label.
  • With the given technical teaching of the invention there is the advantage that now for the first time a labeling machine for linerless labels with an output of up to 240 cutting operations and labeling per minute can be achieved. Two double rolls of different diameter stretch the adhesive tape for cutting. Preferably, all four rollers are driven and the cutting device can cut labels up to 170 millimeters in width, whereby previously only 100 millimeters wide labels could be cut. This is due to the fact that such wide labels are fixed without jamming by the second nip arranged on the outlet side, whereby even wide labels can be cut.
  • By using a linearly moving knife that cuts against a fixed counter knife, the fixed counter knife is exposed and therefore there is little risk that there adhesive attaches, whereby a long service life of the cutting device is given.
  • In the following the invention will be explained in more detail with reference to drawings showing only one embodiment. Here are from the drawings and their description further features essential to the invention and advantages of the invention.
  • Show it:
  • FIG. 1:
    schematically shows in section the representation of a labeling machine according to the invention
    FIG. 2:
    the same representation as FIG. 1 with entry of further details
  • In the FIGS. 1 and 2 In general, an adhesive tape 1 is shown, which consists of a multi-layer composite, which consists in the embodiment shown of a film side 30, which may consist of paper or plastic, wherein the pressure takes place either in the space between the bottom of the film side and the glue side 8 or on the top of the film side 30 is present.
  • This adhesive tape 1 is guided in the direction of arrow 3 over a first guide roller 2, and the large wrap angle, a good transport of the adhesive tape 1 is achieved.
  • The guide roller 2 can be driven or not driven.
  • The fact that the deflection roller 2 is vertically offset and arranged above the upper roller of a first pair of rollers 4, results in a very large wrap angle for the uppermost role of the first pair of rollers 4. This undesirable slippage is substantially reduced.
  • The first pair of rollers 4 thus forms the first nip 5, through which the adhesive tape 1 is transported therethrough.
  • It is important that now downstream of the first pair of rollers 4, a second pair of rollers 14 is arranged, which in turn forms a second nip 13. Between the first pair of rollers 4 and the second pair of rollers 14, the cutting device is now arranged according to the invention, which consists of a linear cutting device in the illustrated embodiment, wherein in the direction of arrows 31 slidably driven cutting blade 7 is linearly movable and is guided against a fixed counter blade 6, which is arranged below the adhesive tape 1.
  • The invention is not limited to the fact that the cutting blade 7 cuts on the paper side 30. It may be provided in another embodiment that counter blade and cutting blade are interchanged with each other, so that the cutting blade 7 intersects on the glue side 8 and the counter blade is arranged opposite to the paper side 30.
  • It is important now that with respect to the axes of the two roller pairs 4, 14 (characterized by the positions 10 and 11), a tensile stress 12 is generated.
  • According to a preferred embodiment of the invention, it is provided here that all rolls of all pairs of rolls 4, 14 are driven synchronously with a single drive motor, but that the diameter of the rolls of the second roll pair 14 is slightly larger than the diameter of the rolls of the first roll pair 4. The diameter difference between the diameter of the rollers of the first pair of rollers 4 and the rollers of the second pair of rollers 14 is in the range of 0.1 to 5%.
  • At position 9, a sensor is arranged, moreover, in connection with FIG. 2 will be described in more detail.
  • After the label has been cut, the cut label 18 is further promoted in the direction of arrow 3 against a transfer device 15, which consists in the embodiment shown of a suction belt 32, which in Arrow direction 16 is driven and which is guided over the pulleys 17, 33, 34.
  • Instead of a suction belt operating with vacuum, other transmission devices may also be used, in particular a transfer belt operating with electrostatic attractive forces and the like.
  • It is important that the drive speed at the deflection rollers 17, 33, 34 (in the direction of arrow 16) is selected to be slightly greater than the speed with which the cut-off label 18 leaves the second nip 14. This ensures that the cut-off label 18 is always pulled lightly during transfer to the transfer device and never pushed.
  • Thus, an exact positioning of the label 18 on the suction belt without lateral displacement or tilting is achieved.
  • By choosing the rate of decrease of the transfer device 15 compared to the delivery rate of the second nip 14, it is ensured that the cut-off labels 18-20 never slide on the suction belt 32.
  • It should therefore always be ensured that a distance 29 between the individual consecutive labels 18-20 is present.
  • In the area of the front deflection roller 34, the now cut label 20 is applied to a product 22, which is guided in the direction of arrow 23 on a conveyor belt 21.
  • In this case, a synchronization of the application of the cut label 20 with the product 22 in the direction of the arrow 23 is achieved. This is based on the FIG. 2 and the sensors shown there explained in more detail.
  • The sensor 35 detects the presence of the product 22 on the conveyor belt 21. It thus triggers the labeling process and the start of the drive of the transfer device 15. The leading edge of the foremost label 20 in FIG FIG. 2 meets the top of the product 22 when the speed of the transfer device in the direction of arrow 16 is synchronous with the speed in the direction of arrow 23 on the conveyor belt 21. The drive of the transfer device 15 stops when the leading edge of the subsequent label 19 comes into the region of the sensor 28. The control of the drive for the transmission device 15 has incorporated a certain delay time.
  • With the sensor 27 is a congestion monitoring, d. H. thus the respective distance 29 between the individual cut labels is monitored.
  • With the sensor 25, the cutting device is driven.
  • The sensor 25 detects a print mark on the adhesive tape 1 and upon detection of this print mark, the entire drive of the roller pairs 4, 14 is stopped. Immediately after stopping is cut, the cutting operation (movement of the cutting blade 7) is detected by the sensor 26.
  • The sensor 26 has the task of recognizing the lowered cutting blade and starts the further feed drive of the roller pairs 4, 14, when the cutting blade 7 has been released from the adhesive tape 1 again.
  • The sensor 25 does not only have to recognize a print mark, but other recognition features can also be provided on the adhesive tape 1, to which the sensor 25 reacts.
  • Likewise, it is only shown by way of example that at the outlet of the second pair of rollers 14, a guide track 24 is provided for supporting storage of the cut-off label 18.
  • Such guideways 24 may also be arranged at other locations of the transport process of the adhesive tape 1. In particular, such a guideway can also be provided upstream of the first pair of rollers 4.
  • Furthermore, such a guideway may also be arranged between the roller pairs in the region of the cutting device.
  • According to a further preferred feature of the invention, it is provided that the speed of the transmission device 15 is synchronized with the speed of the conveyor belt 21. If, for example, the speed of the conveyor belt 21 is reduced and thus the flow of the products 22 past the labeling device, then the speed of a transfer device 15 is also reduced in order to always achieve a synchronous movement when gluing a label 20 onto the product 22. This will prevent a label from being creased onto the product.
