FIG. 3 is a schematic diagram illustrating a stapler unit of the sheet post-processing apparatus. The stapler unit will be described with reference to FIGS. The stapler unit 2 is a unit that aligns and staples sheets (paper).
The stapler unit 2 includes a stapler tray 29 that is a base for aligning sheets (paper), a jogger unit 30 that aligns a direction substantially orthogonal to the sheet bundle conveyance direction (hereinafter referred to as a horizontal direction), and alignment in the sheet conveyance direction. Tapping parts 31 and 32 to be performed, abutting plate 33 that abuts the end of the sheet bundle, an end fence part 34, a stapler 35 that staples the aligned sheet bundle, and a presser claw 36 that guides the sheet to the opening of the stapler 35 The discharge claw 37 discharges the stapled sheet bundle to the shift tray.
When the stipple mode is selected from the image forming apparatus 5, the branching claws installed in the transport path are switched. As a result, the sheet conveyed from the conveyance unit is guided to the stipple unit 2 and discharged onto the stipple tray 29.
When the sheet is carried into the stapler tray 29, the large tataki roller 31 is lowered to press the sheet against the stapler tray 29, and the conveying force is obtained by the frictional force so that the sheet is abutted against the end fence 34.

Tachikikoro always rotates, and the vertical movement is driven by a stepping motor. The small tacho roller 32 also falls in the same manner as the large tachy roller 31, and has a structure in which the sheet is abutted against the end fence 34.
Thereafter, the large jogger 30 performs horizontal alignment of the sheets. The sheet is carried into the staple tray 29, and the sheet abutted against the end fence 34 is pushed and moved from the lateral direction by the tapping roller 31 to move the sheet to a predetermined position.
The small jogger 38 has a function of performing additional adjustment of horizontal alignment that cannot be aligned by the large jogger 30, and is configured to operate separately from the large jogger 30. At the same time as the joggers 30 and 38 perform the aligning operation, the abutting plate 33 is also driven to push the leading edge of the sheet on the stapler tray, and additional adjustment of alignment in the sheet conveying direction is performed.
This series of operations is repeated for the designated number of sheets, and the sheet bundle aligned on the staple tray 29 is completed. The aligned sheet bundle is stapled by the stapler 35. The position of the stapler 35 is configured to be movable to a designated position.
The stapled sheet bundle is discharged by the discharge claw 37. When the signal indicating the completion of the stapling is sent, the discharge claw 37 installed around the stapler tray 29 is operated, and the sheet bundle is pushed out from the stapler tray 29 to the upper left. The sheet extruded from the discharge claw 37 is guided by a large jogger 30 or the like and discharged onto the shift tray.
The sheet extruded from the discharge claw 37 is guided by a large jogger 30 or the like and discharged onto the shift tray. With this operation, one part of the stapled sheet bundle is completed. This operation is repeated for the designated number of copies, and the designated number of sheet bundles are aligned on the shift tray.

FIG. 4 is a schematic diagram illustrating the saddle stitching unit of the sheet post-processing apparatus. FIG. 5 is a schematic view showing the saddle stitching unit aligning unit. FIG. 6 is a schematic view showing a saddle stitching unit folding conveyance unit.
When performing saddle stitching, the sheet (paper) 39 is joggers 40 and 41 that are alignment members in the sheet feeding direction, joggers 42 and 43 that are alignment members in a direction orthogonal to the sheet feeding direction (hereinafter referred to as the width direction), The sheet is conveyed to the saddle stitching processing unit including the guide member 55, the stapler 57, and the folding member 45.
The sheets 39 that have been bound or folded here are stacked on the sheet discharge unit 46 through a conveyance path that includes a pair of rollers and a guide member that conveys the sheet and further creases the sheet. In the embodiment of FIG. 4, 47 and 48, 49 and 50, 51 and 52, 53 and 54 are provided as roller pairs, and 55 and 56 are provided as guide members.
When the saddle stitching mode is selected from the image forming apparatus (not shown), a branching claw (not shown) installed in the transport path is switched. As a result, the sheet conveyed from the conveyance unit is guided to the saddle stitching unit and is discharged onto the saddle stitching tray 44.
When the sheets are carried into the saddle stitching tray 44, the joggers 40 and 41 perform the vertical alignment of the sheets, and the joggers 42 and 43 perform the horizontal alignment of the sheets. The joggers 40, 41, 42, and 43 are driven by a timing belt, and move the sheet to a predetermined position. Thereafter, each of the joggers 40, 41, 42, and 43 returns to a predetermined home position and is ready to receive the next sheet.
This operation is repeated for the designated number of sheets, and the sheet bundle aligned on the saddle stitching tray 44 is completed. The aligned sheet bundle is saddle-stitched by the stapler 57 at two central portions in the sheet bundle conveyance direction.
The saddle stitched sheet bundle is moved horizontally by joggers 40 and 41. When a signal indicating the completion of stapling is sent, the joggers 40 and 41 are operated, guided by the joggers 42 and 43, and moved to a predetermined position for folding the saddle stitched sheet bundle.

The folding member 45 presses the needle position of the sheet bundle in the direction of the opposing folding rollers 47 and 48, and folding processing is performed by these folding rollers 47 and 48. The folding member 45 is driven when the rotational force of the motor is transmitted to the cam via the gear, and reciprocates.
The folding member 45 presses the central portion of the sheet bundle from the lower side, advances to a position where it overlaps further from the nip portion of the middle folding rollers 47 and 48, and presses and rotates the middle folding rollers 47 and 48. Fold the center part. By making the folding member 45 coincide with the needle position of the sheet bundle, the folding position coincides with the needle position, and a minimum folding state can be ensured.
The folded sheet bundle is conveyed by the first, second and third fold-increasing rollers 49 and 50, 51 and 52, 53 and 54 and discharged onto the saddle stitch discharge tray 46. At this time, the distance between the pair of folding rollers is adjusted according to the number of sheet bundles and the thickness of the paper.
By arranging a plurality of pairs of fold-in rollers 49 and 50, 51 and 52, 53 and 54 capable of applying a load to a narrow range, it is possible to make a good crease without stopping the conveyance of the sheet. A decrease can be avoided.
In this way, the folding rollers are sequentially arranged toward the downstream side in the conveyance direction so that the entire sheet bundle folding unit can be folded by a combination of a plurality of pairs.
Further, the folding rollers 49 and 50, 51 and 52, 53 and 54 are arranged such that the upstream folding roller is positioned at the center of the sheet bundle fold, and the pair of folding rollers disposed on the downstream side is closer to the sheet bundle fold. It is arranged outside in the width direction. By configuring the folding position to shift from the center to the outside in this way, the entire width of the sheet bundle can be uniformly pressed.
Further, the interval between the rollers constituting each pair of additional folding rollers can be adjusted, and is set according to the number of sheets and the sheet thickness.
Further, the control program of the control means (CPU) is set so that the interval between the folding rollers can be set based on information input from the user.

The roller width (length in the axial direction) of the first, second and third fold-in rollers 49 and 50, 51 and 52, 53 and 54 is smaller than the sheet folding width (sheet bundle width). For this reason, it becomes possible to apply a load to a narrow range of the sheet bundle folding portion, and a desired fold can be formed in the sheet bundle. In addition, since a load can be applied in the process of conveying the sheet bundle, productivity does not decrease.
When the sheet bundle is thick, if the interval is too small, wrinkles may be applied. Therefore, there is an effect of widening the interval to prevent wrinkles. In the sort mode, the sheet discharge tray (sort unit) 4 shown in FIG. 1 is slid to move the sheets.
The middle folding roller 47 and the first, second, and third folding rollers 49, 51, and 53 are disposed orthogonal to the conveyance direction of the sheet 39. The sheet is folded by the four pairs of rollers and the plate-like folding member 45.
The operation in the saddle stitching mode will be described. In the saddle stitching mode, the sheet conveyed from the image forming apparatus passes through the conveyance path of the sheet post-processing apparatus and is conveyed onto the saddle stitching tray 44 from the paper discharge roller 58 near the saddle stitching tray 44.
The conveyed sheet is moved by the operation of narrowing the joggers 40 and 41, which are alignment members in the sheet conveyance direction, and the operation of narrowing the joggers 42 and 43, which are alignment members in a direction orthogonal to the sheet conveyance direction (hereinafter, width direction). Go to the prescribed position.
The above operation is repeated every time a sheet is carried into the saddle stitching tray 44 (for each sheet), and a specified number of sheet bundles are aligned on the saddle stitching tray 44. The aligned sheet bundle is stapled by the stapler 57 at two locations in the center in the conveyance direction, and the stapler is moved to the position of the folding member 45 by moving the joggers 40 and 41.

The folding member 45 presses the central portion of the sheet bundle, advances to a position where it overlaps further from the nip portion of the middle folding roller 47, and performs folding processing on the central portion of the sheet bundle by the pressure contact and rotation of the middle folding roller 47. .
The folded sheet bundle is conveyed to the position of the first folding roller 49 by the rotation of the middle folding roller 47. The first folding roller 49 presses the sheet bundle only at the center in the width direction of the sheet bundle by pressing and rotating, and further creases the sheet bundle.
The sheet bundle conveyed by the rotation of the first folding roller 49 is further creased by the second folding roller 51 arranged so as to press near the center between the center and the end in the sheet bundle width direction. Attached. The third folding roller 53 further creases near the end in the sheet bundle width direction.
In horizontal folding, the roller rolls in a direction perpendicular to the sheet conveyance direction, which causes the sheet to be wrinkled. In the present invention, the sheet bundle folds are creased in order from the center to the outside, so that the occurrence of sheet wrinkles can be prevented.
At this time, the setting of the gap interval between the first pair of folding rollers 49 is sent from the image forming apparatus. The sheet bundle is received while being opened at intervals according to the setting, and a crease is formed by rotation.
Depending on the number of sheets and the sheet thickness, the thickness of the sheet bundle increases. At this time, if the interval between the pair of folding rollers 49 is narrow, the sheet may be wrinkled. In the present invention, the occurrence of sheet wrinkles can be prevented by adjusting the distance between the pair of folding rollers 49.
The gap interval is set by the user. This is an effective means when the sheet bundle is thick. The folded sheet bundle is guided by the guide member 55 (guide path), discharged by the rotation of the third folding roller 53, and stacked on the paper discharge tray.
The thickness of the sheet bundle depends on the thickness and properties of the sheet and is difficult to grasp. In the present invention, the interval between the pair of folding rollers 49 is set by the user to cope with the sheet thickness, and the user can respond to the sheet thickness that is difficult to predict.
