【0033】さらにここで、回転軸部41の構造について詳述する。 Furthermore now be described in detail the structure of the rotation shaft 41. 回転軸部41は、図3及び図4に示すように、ガイド5に形成された開口22を通じて互いの先端部が対向するように配設された一対の案内軸45及び駆動軸42と、駆動ベルト44、駆動プーリ43等を介し駆動軸42を(図2中の反時計方向に)回転駆動するモータ40と、駆動軸42の先端部に対し案内軸45を進退自在に移動するソレノイド46と、駆動軸42の先端部又は案内軸45の先端部にそれぞれ設けられた磨耗部材420及び滑り部材421とを備えている。 Rotating shaft portion 41, as shown in FIGS. 3 and 4, a pair of guide shafts 45 and the drive shaft 42 to each other tip is arranged so as to face through an opening 22 formed in the guide 5, the drive belt 44, a drive shaft 42 via the drive pulley 43 and the like and a motor 40 for driving (counter clockwise in FIG. 2) rotates, and the solenoid 46 to move freely advance and retract the guide shaft 45 relative to the distal end portion of the drive shaft 42 , and a wear member 420 and the sliding member 421 respectively provided on the distal end of the tip or the guide shaft 45 of the drive shaft 42. 磨耗部材420と滑り部材421との互いに対向する先端部分のコーナは、搬送されてくる紙葉類を案内するための面取りが施されている。 Corners of opposing distal portion of the wear member 420 and the sliding member 421, chamfer for guiding the sheet conveyed is applied.

【0034】また、磨耗部材420は、当該磨耗部材4 Further, the wear member 420, the wear member 4
20が回転している状態で且つ滑り部材421との間で紙葉類3を挟持している状態において、紙葉類3の下面との間で滑りが生じないように、材質や表面荒さ等が考慮され作製されている。 In a state in which sandwich the sheet 3 between and sliding member 421 in a state where 20 is rotated, so that no slippage between the lower surface of the sheet 3, the material and surface roughness or the like There has been taken into account is made. 一方、滑り部材421は、磨耗部材420が回転している状態で且つ磨耗部材420との間で紙葉類3を挟持している状態において、紙葉類3 On the other hand, sliding member 421, in a state in which sandwich the sheet 3 between and the wear member 420 in a state that the wear member 420 is rotated, the sheet 3
の上面との間で滑りが生じるように、前記同様材質や表面荒さ等が考慮され作製されている。 As a slip between the upper surface of the resulting, the same material and the surface roughness and the like are taken into consideration produced.

【0035】したがって、回転軸部41は、モータ40 [0035] Thus, the rotation shaft 41, the motor 40
等を介して駆動軸42を回転駆動している状態で且つソレノイド46を介して案内軸45を駆動軸42側へ前進させ滑り部材421と磨耗部材420との間で紙葉類3 Sheet between such a drive shaft 42 and sliding member 421 to advance the guide shaft 45 through the solenoid 46 to the drive shaft 42 side in a state that rotating the via with wear member 420 3
を表裏より挟持している状態では、紙葉類3と磨耗部材420とを一体で回転させ、紙葉類3と滑り部材421 At the state where the clamped from front and back, the between sheet 3 and the wear member 420 is rotated integrally, sheet 3 and the sliding member 421
とを摺動させる。 Sliding the door. すなわち、回転軸部41は、滑り部材421と磨耗部材420とで紙葉類3を挟持した部分を回転中心としてこの紙葉類3を搬送面(ガイド5の平面方向)に沿って自転させるものとなっている。 That is, the rotation shaft 41, which is rotating along the sheet 3 transport surface as a rotation about a portion which sandwiches the sheet 3 (the plane direction of the guide 5) by the sliding member 421 and the wear member 420 It has become.

【0036】次に、このように構成された紙葉類処理装置1において、搬送方向変換部8による紙葉類3の搬送方向(搬送姿勢)の変換動作について図5乃至図10を用いて説明する。 Next, in the thus configured sheet processing apparatus 1, the conversion operation of the transport direction of the sheet 3 by the transfer direction changing section 8 (conveying position) with reference to FIGS. 5 to 10 described to.

【0037】図5に示すように、長手搬送路11によって長手方向に搬送されてきた紙葉類3が入ロセンサ13 As shown in FIG. 5, the sheet 3 conveyed in the longitudinal direction by the longitudinal conveyance path 11 is input Rosensa 13
によって検知されると、回転軸部41が紙葉類3を保持するタイミングが論理的に算出される。 Once detected by the timing of the rotation shaft portion 41 to hold the sheet 3 is calculated logically. 紙葉類3がガイド5で搬送を規制されつつ補助ローラ16により搬送されて行くと、図6に示すように回転軸部41へ到達したことが、位置センサ15によって検知される。 When the sheet 3 is gradually conveyed by the auxiliary rollers 16 while being regulated to transport the guide 5, that has reached the rotating shaft 41 as shown in FIG. 6, it is detected by the position sensor 15. 次に、算出された保持のタイミングと位置センサ15による検知のタイミングの整合性が確認された上で、ソレノイド4 Then, in terms of consistency of timing detection by the timing and position sensor 15 of the holding calculated is confirmed, the solenoid 4
6が制御され、図7に示すように、案内軸45が駆動軸42側(押し出し方向G側)へ下降する。 6 is controlled, as shown in FIG. 7, the guide shaft 45 is lowered to the drive shaft 42 side (the extrusion direction G side). 案内軸45が下降すると、モータ40の駆動力により回転している駆動軸42先端の摩擦部材420と、案内軸45先端の滑り部材421との間に紙葉類3が挟持される。 When the guide shaft 45 is lowered, the friction member 420 of the drive shaft 42 the tip being rotated by the driving force of the motor 40, the sheet 3 is sandwiched between the guide shaft 45 the tip of the sliding member 421. これにより、紙葉類3と磨耗部材420とは一体となって回転するとともに滑り部材421と紙葉類3とは摺接することになり、図8、図9に示すように、紙葉類3が搬送面(ガイド5の平面方向)に沿って(図8中の反時計方向に)自転を開始する。 Thereby, the sheet 3 and the wear member 420 will be in sliding contact and the sliding member 421 and the sheet 3 while rotating together, as shown in FIGS. 8 and 9, the sheet 3 There (counterclockwise in FIG. 8) along the conveying surface (plane direction of the guide 5) starts to rotate.

【0038】この後、自転により搬送方向(搬送姿勢) [0038] After this, the transport direction by the rotation (conveying posture)
が長手方向から短手方向へ90°変換された紙葉類3が各出口センサ14により検知されると、ソレノイド46 There the sheet 3 which is 90 ° converted from the longitudinal to lateral direction is detected by the exit sensor 14, the solenoid 46
が制御され案内軸45が上昇する。 There is controlled the guide shaft 45 is increased. さらに、案内軸45 In addition, the guide shaft 45
の上昇により滑り部材421が磨耗部材420より離間すると、紙葉類3の自転が停止するとともに、短手搬送路12に受け渡された紙葉類3は、さらに下流側(搬送方向F側)へと搬送される。 When sliding member 421 by the rise of away from the wear member 420, with rotation of the sheet 3 is stopped, the paper sheet 3 that has been passed in a short conveyance path 12 further downstream (conveying direction F side) and it is conveyed to.

【0039】この結果、図10に示すように、搬送方向変換部8は、回転軸部41を構成する駆動軸42と案内軸45とで紙葉類3を挟持しつつ搬送面に沿って回転方向L側へ紙葉類3を90°自転させながら、すなわち紙葉類3の搬送方向(搬送姿勢)を長手方向から短手方向へ変換しながら、紙葉類3を長手搬送路11から短手搬送路12に受け渡したことになる。 [0039] Consequently, as shown in FIG. 10, the transport direction changing section 8, it rotates along the conveying surface while nipping the sheet 3 by the drive shaft 42 of the rotating shaft portion 41 and the guide shaft 45 while the sheet 3 in the direction L side to rotate 90 °, i.e. while converting the conveying direction of the paper sheet 3 (conveying posture) from the longitudinal to lateral direction, short of the sheet 3 from the longitudinal conveyance path 11 thereby it hands over to the hand conveying path 12.

【0040】このように、本実施形態に係る紙葉類処理装置1は、紙葉類3の搬送方向を長手方向から短手方向、又は短手方向から長手方向に変換することができるので、装置1内における処理内容に応じて紙葉類3の搬送姿勢を適宜選択して装置1内を搬送させることが可能となる。 [0040] Thus, the sheet processing apparatus 1 according to this embodiment, it is possible to convert the conveying direction of the sheet 3 from the longitudinal lateral direction, or from the lateral direction to the longitudinal direction, device it is possible to transport the properly selected and the device 1 the conveyance posture of the paper sheet 3 according to the processing contents of the 1.

【0041】したがって、装置1内への紙葉類の取り込み部や、紙葉類3の種類、表裏の向き等を検知する検知部4が設けられた長手搬送路11では、紙葉類3を長手方向に搬送させ、一方、紙葉類3の検知精度が比較的重要でなく単に紙葉類3を長い距離、搬送させる必要がある部分や、紙葉類の集積を行う集積部9a、9b、9 [0041] Thus, and incorporation of the paper sheet into the apparatus 1, the type of the paper sheet 3, the longitudinal conveyance path 11 detection unit 4 is provided for detecting the front and back orientation, etc., the sheets 3 longitudinally is conveyed, whereas, just long distance paper sheet 3 detection accuracy is relatively unimportant in the sheet 3, and the portion that needs to be transported, the integrated unit 9a for performing accumulation of paper sheets, 9b , 9
c、9等を連絡する短手搬送路12では、紙葉類3を短手方向に搬送させることが可能である。 In the short conveying path 12 communicating c, 9, etc., it is possible to convey the sheet 3 in the lateral direction.

【0042】これにより、紙葉類3を長手方向に搬送させる長手搬送路11では、紙葉類3のスキューの発生が抑制されるとともに、1枚の紙葉類を長い距離で検知できるので、検知精度の向上を図ることができる。 [0042] Thus, in the longitudinal transport path 11 to convey the sheet 3 in the longitudinal direction, the generation of the skew of the sheet 3 is suppressed, it is possible to detect the one sheet at a long distance, it is possible to improve the detection accuracy.

【0043】一方、紙葉類3を短手方向に搬送する短手搬送路12では、紙葉類3の搬送ピッチを短くすることができるので、搬送路を長くとる必要がなく、装置の小型化を図ることができる。 On the other hand, the shorter conveying path 12 conveys the sheet 3 in the lateral direction, it is possible to shorten the conveying pitch of the sheet 3, it is not necessary to take a long conveying path, compact device it is possible to achieve the reduction. また、短いピッチで多数の紙葉類3を搬送できることから、処理能力の向上を図ることができる。 Also, a large number of paper sheets 3 can be transported in a short pitch, it is possible to improve the processing capacity. これにより、紙葉類3を低速で搬送することが可能になるので、搬送モータ等の騒音を低下させることができる。 Thereby, it becomes possible to convey the sheet 3 at a low speed, it is possible to reduce the noise such as the transport motor. また、集積部9a、9b、9c、9dでは、紙葉類3の短手方向の幅に応じで紙葉類集積用の複数の羽根車等を設置することが可能となるので、装置の小型化を図ることができる。 The integrated unit 9a, 9b, 9c, in 9d, it becomes possible to install a plurality of impellers for paper sheet storing such in accordance with the lateral direction of the width of the sheet 3, compact device it is possible to achieve the reduction. さらに、本実施形態に係る紙葉類処理装置1は、紙葉類3を自転させることにより紙葉類3の搬送方向(紙葉類の搬送姿勢)を変換するので、小さなスペースで紙葉類3の搬送方向を変換でき、 Further, the sheet processing apparatus 1 according to this embodiment, since converts the conveying direction of the sheet 3 (conveyance posture of the paper sheet) by rotating the sheet 3, the sheet in a small space 3 can convert the conveying direction,
装置の小型化を実現することが可能である。 It is possible to miniaturize the device.

【0044】なお、本実施形態では、紙葉類3を滑り部材421と磨耗部材420とで挟持するタイミングについての説明を簡略化していたが、例えば、図11及び図12に示すように、紙葉類3を挟持するタイミングを変位K分だけ遅らせることで、短手搬送路12への受け渡し位置を変位Kに応じた距離(移動M)だけ移動することができる。 [0044] In the present embodiment, although simplified description of the timing for clamping in the sheet 3 and sliding member 421 and the wear member 420, for example, as shown in FIGS. 11 and 12, the paper by delaying the timing of pinching the sheet 3 by the displacement K content can be moved by a distance a transfer position of the lateral conveyance path 12 corresponding to the displacement K (mobile M). これにより、例えば異なるサイズの紙葉類が連続的に搬送されてくる場合でも、紙葉類3を挟持するタイミングの調整を行うことで、短手搬送路12の位置等を変更することなく、各紙葉類の搬送姿勢を変換することができる。 Accordingly, even when, for example, different sheet size is serially conveyed, by adjusting the timing of pinching the sheet 3, without changing the position of the short-side conveying path 12, it is possible to convert the conveyance posture of the paper sheets.

【0045】次に、本発明の第2の実施形態に係る紙葉類処理装置について説明する。 Next, a description will be given sheet processing apparatus according to a second embodiment of the present invention. この実施形態に係る紙葉類処理装置は、第1の実施形態の搬送方向変換部8に代えて、搬送方向変換部8aが設けられている。 Paper sheet processing apparatus according to this embodiment, in place of the conveying direction changing unit 8 of the first embodiment, it is provided conveying direction changing unit 8a.
