Description

本発明は、積載した新聞本紙を自動的に1部毎に送給する新聞本紙送給装置に関する。   The present invention relates to a newspaper book feeding apparatus that automatically feeds loaded newspaper books one by one.
新聞販売店から家庭に配達される新聞本紙は、雨が降ると、新聞を濡らさないためにビニール包装が行われて配達されている(特許文献1)。
新聞本紙のビニール包装には、新聞包装機が使用される。この新聞包装機は2本のロールフィルムを用い、挿入口から新聞を上下のフィルムで挟んで内部の搬送ベルトまで手動で押し込むと、自動的に内部に搬送され、包装されて外部に排出される押込み型四方シール包装機が殆どである。
新聞包装機が市場で使用されてから早20年近くになろうとしているが、新聞本紙の新聞包装機への挿入は、未だに一部ずつの手差し挿入が殆どであり、自動化は全く進んでいない。新聞包装機は、新聞販売店にとって必需品であり、現在では、ほぼ全ての新聞販売店で使用されるまで普及している。また、一台では早朝の繁忙期に対応できないため2台以上備えている新聞販売店が多い。
ところで、従来の包装機の自動化については、特許文献2に開示されたような手差しでなく自動で包装機に給紙できる装置も提案されてはいるが、夕刊などの薄い新聞や、逆に、チラシの多い厚い新聞に対応が難しく、また、新聞本誌毎にそれぞれの調整が必要なこともあって、あまり普及していない。
Newspaper newspapers delivered to homes from newspaper dealers are delivered in plastic packaging in order to prevent the newspaper from getting wet when it rains (Patent Document 1).
Newspaper wrapping machines are used for the plastic packaging of newspapers. This newspaper wrapping machine uses two roll films. When a newspaper is sandwiched between the upper and lower films from the insertion slot and manually pushed to the inner conveyor belt, it is automatically transported inside, packaged and discharged to the outside. Most are push-type four-side seal packaging machines.
Almost 20 years have passed since newspaper wrapping machines were used in the market, but most of the insertion of newspapers into newspaper wrapping machines is still manual insertion, and automation has not progressed at all. . Newspaper packaging machines are a necessity for newspaper dealers and are now popular until they are used in almost all newspaper dealers. In addition, there are many newspaper dealers with two or more units because one unit cannot cope with the busy season in the early morning.
By the way, about automation of the conventional packaging machine, although the apparatus which can be automatically fed to the packaging machine instead of manual feed as disclosed in Patent Document 2 has been proposed, It is difficult to deal with thick newspapers with many leaflets, and it is not very popular because each newspaper must be adjusted.

In this specification, newspaper newspaper refers to evening and morning newspapers delivered from newspaper companies, and the state in which advertisements are folded into these evening and morning newspapers, or are wrapped in a film by a newspaper packaging machine. It means the state just before.
FIG. 1 is an external perspective view of a newspaper book feeder 1 according to an embodiment of the present invention. FIG. 2 shows a state in which the automatic newspaper feeder 1 of this embodiment is connected to the front surface of a conventional newspaper packaging machine 9.
3 and 5 are schematic block sectional views for explaining the operation in a state where the newspaper packaging machine 9 and the newspaper book feeding apparatus 1 are connected. When the automatic newspaper feeder 1 according to the present embodiment is used by being connected to a newspaper packaging machine 9 operating in the market, in this embodiment, the connecting member provided on the front surface of the newspaper packaging machine 9 and the newspaper book paper are used. The connecting member provided on the back surface of the feeding device 1 is matched and connected, and this is mechanically connected via a known connecting bracket (not shown) or the like. At this time, the electrical connection for exchanging signals and the control ROM on the newspaper packaging machine 9 side are changed by known means.
Moreover, the installation base of the newspaper wrapping machine 9 is various, and a dedicated base such as the newspaper wrapping machine mounting base 93 shown in FIG. 3 is not necessarily used, but a dedicated base as shown in FIG. 3 has already been purchased and used. If this is the case, take into account the weight / center of gravity balance of the new configuration with the addition of the automatic newspaper feeder 1. Improvements shall be made.
通常、新聞包装機9の包装機構本体91は、図2に示すように、キャスター92等を有する可動式の新聞包装機置き台93と共に設置され、この新聞包装機置き台93の背面にはシュータ94が設けられていて、新聞包装機9の前部にある挿入口である新聞投入口95に挿入された新聞本紙が、新聞包装機9の内部に送り込まれて図3に示すように、上下のフィルムF(Fa、Fb)で両端部及び前後端部を熱溶着してビニール包装された後、背後の排出口(図示せず)から排出され、置き台93背面のシュータ94上を滑走し方向転換して置き台93の下部にセットされた可搬式新聞収納箱96内に収容される。
この新聞本紙NPがフィルムで包装が完成された状態は、図4に示すように、新聞本紙NPの第1面の新聞名NMが外側になるように四つ折りされ、四方を熱溶着された状態で配達されることになる。
Normally, the packaging mechanism main body 91 of the newspaper packaging machine 9 is installed together with a movable newspaper packaging machine mounting table 93 having casters 92 and the like, as shown in FIG. 94 is provided, and a newspaper book inserted into a newspaper slot 95 which is an insertion slot at the front of the newspaper wrapping machine 9 is fed into the newspaper wrapping machine 9 and is moved up and down as shown in FIG.

図5に示す様に、スライド可能な枠体21は、構造体として左右に一対の側板311が設けられ、左右の側板311の内側には左右の側壁31a,31bが積載する新聞の幅に見合って取り付けられている。そして、これら側壁31a,31bの前端には横構造体38が左右の側板311間に渡されて強固に固定されていて、新聞積層部3の構造を強固にするとともに、スライド枠体21を補強している。
Then, the newspaper packaging machine 9 of the automatic paper feeder 1 is attached by removing the detachable insertion auxiliary guide 97 for inserting the newspaper into the newspaper packaging machine 9 shown in FIG. The central mechanism 2 is attached to the front surface of the newspaper packaging machine 9 via a connection bracket (not shown) so that the newspaper insertion port 95 is opposed.
The newspaper stacking section 3 has a size of about 4 to 5 centimeters of newspaper paper NP, and is provided with at least side walls 31a and 31b on both sides and a front wall section 32 on the front side for stacking the newspaper paper. A storage container corresponding to the size of the newspaper book to be loaded is formed, and the newspaper stack NP is folded with the folding side (secondary folding part) of the newspaper book NP aligned with the front wall 32 side. Further, the newspaper laminating section 3 is provided with a bottom portion 37 which is inclined somewhat downstream, and the bottom portion 37 is provided with a friction conveying mechanism 4 for frictionally contacting the lowermost newspaper book and sending it forward (in the exit direction). A storage container that is almost the size of a newspaper is constructed.
As shown in FIG. 5, the slidable frame body 21 is provided with a pair of side plates 311 on the left and right sides as a structure, and the left and right side walls 31 a, 31 b correspond to the width of the newspaper loaded on the inside of the left and right side plates 311.

A lateral structure 38 is passed between the left and right side plates 311 and firmly fixed to the front ends of the side walls 31a and 31b, thereby strengthening the structure of the newspaper stacking section 3 and reinforcing the slide frame 21. is doing.
(前壁部32)
図1、図3、図7(a)(b)に示されるように、前壁部32は補助送り機構51(図9)の前工程を構成するとともに、メンテナンス時等の利便性を考慮して上方に移動できる構造であり、また、開口Aの高さを自動給紙する新聞の厚さに合わせて調整できる構成になっている。
図7に示すように、この前壁部32としてヒンジ部321が設けられるが、ヒンジ部321は断面コの字状に加工された板材であって、横向きにコの字状(図では逆コの字状)であって、このヒンジ部321の下側部には、板材33が高さ調整機構36を介して設けられて前後方向に回動自在に設けられ、板材33の下側先端部331と底部37との距離、すなわち開口Aが調整固定されて取り付けられる。

(Front wall 32)
As shown in FIGS. 1, 3, and 7 (a) and 7 (b), the front wall portion 32 constitutes a pre-process of the auxiliary feed mechanism 51 (FIG. 9) and considers convenience during maintenance and the like. The height of the opening A can be adjusted according to the thickness of the newspaper to be automatically fed.
As shown in FIG. 7, a hinge portion 321 is provided as the front wall portion 32. The hinge portion 321 is a plate material processed into a U-shape in cross section, and has a U-shape in the lateral direction (in FIG. The plate member 33 is provided on the lower side of the hinge portion 321 via the height adjusting mechanism 36 so as to be rotatable in the front-rear direction. The distance between 331 and the bottom 37, that is, the opening A is adjusted and fixed.
In the configuration of the hinge portion 321 that is rotatable in the front-rear direction, the support shaft 34 is fixed to the left and right on the horizontal structure 38 via the left and right L-shaped angles 35, and the hinge portion 321 is rotatable on the left and right support shafts 34. Is attached. And the front wall part 32 shown to Fig.7 (a) is installed in the center between the side walls 31a and 31b on either side as shown in FIG.
この前壁部32は、通常、図7(b)の実線で示される様に下方位置にあり、ヒンジ部321の所定箇所にはストッパ部3211が設けられ、このストッパ部3211は横構造体38に取り付けられたL字アングル35の所定箇所にストッパ受部351に当たって回転抑止され、前壁部32の下側先端部331の下方位置が維持されるとともに、摩擦搬送機構4を駆動したとき、前進する新聞本紙NPの開口Aから上の新聞本紙の圧力を受け止めて静止させる。
ヒンジ部321に対する板材33との高さ調整機構36の関係を説明すると、前述した前壁部32のヒンジ部321は横方向にコの字状に形成され両端に両側面部を形成するが、この両側面部322には高さ調整部36が設けられ、一方、板材33も両端がヒンジ部321と同様に横方向にコの字状に形成され両端に両側面部332が形成され、この両側面部332には調整用長穴361設け、ヒンジ部321側のネジ362により高さ調整されてから固定される。
ここで、開口Aの高さ調整について述べると、本来開口Aは新聞積載部3に積載された新聞本紙NPの最下層の新聞本紙のみを取り出すために設けられるべきではあるが、そのためには積載される新聞本紙の厚さ毎の調整が必要となるが、そのような開口Aは最下層の新聞本紙NP1の一部のみが容易に通過して、最下層から2番目の新聞本紙NP2が阻止される高さに調整されなければならない。
The front wall portion 32 is normally located at a lower position as shown by a solid line in FIG. 7B, and a stopper portion 3211 is provided at a predetermined position of the hinge portion 321, and the stopper portion 3211 is a horizontal structure 38. Rotation is suppressed by hitting a predetermined portion of the L-shaped angle 35 attached to the stopper receiving portion 351, and the lower position of the lower front end portion 331 of the front wall portion 32 is maintained, and when the friction conveyance mechanism 4 is driven, it moves forward. The pressure of the upper newspaper book is received from the opening A of the newspaper book NP to be stopped.
The relationship of the height adjustment mechanism 36 with the plate member 33 with respect to the hinge portion 321 will be described. The hinge portion 321 of the front wall portion 32 described above is formed in a U shape in the lateral direction, and both side portions are formed at both ends. Both side surface portions 322 are provided with height adjusting portions 36. On the other hand, both ends of the plate member 33 are formed in a U-shape in the lateral direction like the hinge portion 321, and both side surface portions 332 are formed at both ends. Is provided with an adjustment long hole 361 and the height is adjusted by a screw 362 on the hinge 321 side and then fixed.
Here, the height adjustment of the opening A will be described. Originally, the opening A should be provided in order to take out only the lowermost newspaper sheet of the newspaper book NP loaded on the newspaper stacking unit 3, but for that purpose, the stacking is not performed. It is necessary to adjust the thickness of the newspapers to be printed, but only a part of the lowermost newspaper NP1 can easily pass through such an opening A, and the second newspaper NP2 from the lowermost layer can block. Must be adjusted to the height to be done.
このような条件が簡単に満たせるとしたら、例えば、厚さ5mmの新聞本紙では開口Aの高さを5mm強に調整すれば可能であろうが、チラシの入らない夕刊紙(頁数で20頁以下)の新聞は厚さ1mmにも満たない程度であり、そのような夕刊紙の折り畳み部の稜線は均一でなく、また、新聞本紙の印刷状況や印刷の乾き具合等の理由で新聞本紙間の摩擦抵抗が極めて大きい場合では、仮に、開口Aの高さを夕刊の厚さに合わせて調整したとしても、開口が狭いと稜線が畝っていたり厚さが不均一であると取り出せなく、また、開口Aを広めに設定すると2〜3部くっついて取り出されてしまう問題がある。
従って、本実施例においては、開口Aの下流にサバキ機構5を設けて、特に、チラシの入らない夕刊紙や、朝刊紙においては、後述する理由のように、開口Aの高さ調整は最下層の新聞本紙が確実に通過できるように、2〜3部が通過する高さに調整される。
このような調整であれば、仮に、図12(b)に示すように、新聞本紙NPの二次折り畳み部の稜線c1が畝っていたり、折りが弱くて多少膨らんでいても最下層の新聞本紙を開口Aから確実に取り出すことができる。
なお、チラシがたくさん入った新聞本紙においては、開口Aの調整は一部のみが確実に取り出せる高さで調整されれば、開口Aで既に最下層の新聞本紙のみを分離することが容易に理解できる。また、このような厚い新聞では次段のサバキ機構5でも同様の理由で確実に最下層の新聞本紙のみを通過させることができるから、開口Aの高さ調整は厚い新聞本紙ほど厳密ではない。
If such a condition can be easily satisfied, for example, a newspaper with a thickness of 5 mm may be possible if the height of the opening A is adjusted to a little over 5 mm. The following newspapers are less than 1mm in thickness, and the ridges of the folding section of such evening papers are not uniform, and between newspapers because of the printing situation of the newspapers and the dryness of printing. In the case where the frictional resistance is extremely large, even if the height of the opening A is adjusted according to the thickness of the evening edition, if the opening is narrow, it cannot be taken out if the ridge is curled or the thickness is uneven, Further, if the opening A is set to be wide, there is a problem that two to three parts stick together and are taken out.
Therefore, in the present embodiment, the Sabaki mechanism 5 is provided downstream of the opening A, and the height adjustment of the opening A is most suitable for the reason that will be described later, especially for evening papers and leaflets that do not contain flyers. It is adjusted to a height at which 2 to 3 parts pass so that the lower newspaper can be surely passed.
With such an adjustment, as shown in FIG. 12 (b), even if the ridgeline c1 of the secondary folding portion of the newspaper NP is curled or the fold line is weak and slightly swelled, the lowermost newspaper The paper can be reliably removed from the opening A.
For newspapers with many leaflets, it is easy to understand that if the adjustment of the opening A is adjusted so that only a part can be reliably removed, only the lowermost newspaper is already separated at the opening A. it can. Further, in such a thick newspaper, even the next-stage Sabaki mechanism 5 can surely pass only the lowermost newspaper sheet for the same reason, and therefore the height adjustment of the opening A is not as strict as the thick newspaper sheet.
前壁部32の板材33の下端先端部331は、少し前方に折り曲げられていて、両側部が下側に突出部3311が形成されていて、開口Aの高さは突出部3311と底板37の高さを示し、このように、板材33の下端先端部331の中央に設けられた凹状の中央凹部3312が底板37の高さAより高く(符号X)なっていて、後述する、新聞本紙NPの折り畳み部中央に起こるカール(図12参照)が通過でき、板材33が影響されないように配慮されている。前述したように薄い新聞本紙(チラシの入らない夕刊紙から、僅かにチラシの入った朝刊紙)では開口Aの高さは自動給紙される新聞本紙NPが2〜3部程度が通過する高さAに調整される。すなわち、前記開口Aは、両側部(突出部)3311が下方に下がっていて所定部数以下の新聞本紙NPが通過できる間隔を有するが、中央部は新聞本紙NPの折り畳み部中央に起こるカール等の新聞本紙NPの表面が盛り上がるような高い位置にあっても通過できるように中央凹部3312を形成して、全体として門型を形成しており、中央部(3312)は両側部(突出部)3311よりも図7でX1だけ高い位置にある。
次に、板材33の位置調整の具体例に述べると、ネジ362はローレットネジ等で指で回せる構造であり、左右のネジ362を緩めて板材33が移動できるようにし、下側先端部331と低部37との間に対象となる新聞本紙の先端を2〜3部重ねて挟んだ後、再度、左右のネジ362を締めるようにしても良い。
また、図示はしていないが、調整目盛りを板材33と対応するヒンジ321に設けて、互いの目盛りを頼りに調整するようにしても良い。
また、下側先端部331の高さが異なる板材33を数種類用意して、新聞本紙の厚さに応じて取り替えるようにしても良い。
なお、本実施例の前壁部32、および、開口A、および、開口Aの調整手段は一例であり、本発明の目的を達成する構成であれば他の手段を用いても良いことは言うまでもない。
The lower end tip portion 331 of the plate member 33 of the front wall portion 32 is bent slightly forward, both side portions are formed with protruding portions 3311 on the lower side, and the height of the opening A is between the protruding portion 3311 and the bottom plate 37. In this way, the concave central recess 3312 provided at the center of the lower end tip 331 of the plate member 33 is higher than the height A of the bottom plate 37 (symbol X). The curl (see FIG. 12) that occurs at the center of the folding portion of the sheet can pass through, so that the plate member 33 is not affected. As described above, in thin newspapers (from evening papers without flyers to morning newspapers with small leaflets), the height of the opening A is high enough to pass about 2 to 3 copies of newspaper paper NP automatically fed. Is adjusted to A. That is, the opening A has both sides (protrusions) 3311 descending downward so that a predetermined number or less of newspapers NP can pass through, but the central part is a curl or the like that occurs at the center of the folded part of the newspapers NP. The central recess 3312 is formed so that it can pass even in a high position where the surface of the newspaper NP is raised, forming a gate shape as a whole, and the central portion (3312) is both side portions (protruding portions) 3311. 7 is higher than X1 in FIG.
Next, a specific example of the position adjustment of the plate member 33 will be described. The screw 362 is a structure that can be turned with a finger using a knurled screw or the like. The left and right screws 362 are loosened so that the plate member 33 can be moved. Alternatively, the left and right screws 362 may be tightened again after two to three copies of the front end of the target newspaper are sandwiched between the lower portion 37.
Although not shown, an adjustment scale may be provided on the hinge 321 corresponding to the plate member 33, and the scales may be adjusted depending on each other.
Further, several types of plate members 33 having different heights of the lower front end portion 331 may be prepared and replaced according to the thickness of the newspaper.
It should be noted that the front wall portion 32, the opening A, and the adjusting means for the opening A in this embodiment are merely examples, and it goes without saying that other means may be used as long as the object of the present invention is achieved. Yes.
(摩擦搬送機構3)
底部37に設けた摩擦搬送機構4は、図1、図5に示すように、複数の摩擦ローラ41は、底部37に設けた角穴371を通して僅かに底部37上に突き出て、最下層の新聞本紙NPの底面に均等に接触するよう構成されている。
図5に示すように、これら摩擦ローラ41は底部37の下方にある枠体に回転自在に支持された複数の搬送シャフト42(図3参照)上にほぼ等間隔に配置されている。
ここで、この摩擦ローラ41(サバキローラ51も同じ)について説明すると、図8に示すように、摩擦ローラ41の構造は、ボディ411がワンウェイクラッチ413を介して搬送シャフト42の所定位置上に一方向自在にそれぞれ固定され、ボディ411の周面に弾性部材による摩擦部材412で覆い、さらに、摩擦部材412の表面には溝4121が切られていて、新聞との摩擦を大きくしている。なお、摩擦部材412は容易に交換できる構成になっている。これら各搬送シャフト42はそれぞれギヤ(図示せず)を介して互いに連結されているとともに駆動機構(図示せず)に連結され、駆動機構を起動すると各摩擦ローラ41は新聞本紙NPを前進させる向きに回転駆動されるとともに、駆動機構が停止していても前進方向に空転するように構成されている。なお、摩擦ローラ41は、後述するように、下送りローラ512、サバキローラ51、給送ローラ62,63と同じ構成である。
前記摩擦搬送機構4は上記の様に構成されていて、駆動機構を駆動すると、新聞積載部3内の新聞本紙NPは前壁部32方向(前方)に移動させることができるが、前壁部32における板材33の下側先端部331の下方に開口Aが設けられていて、開口Aから通過し得ない上層の新聞本紙NPは前壁部32(板材33)により進行を阻止され、後述する開口Aから通過し得る下層の一部の新聞本紙NPは開口Aを通過して新聞積載部3外に取り出すことができる。
(Friction transport mechanism 3)
As shown in FIGS. 1 and 5, the friction conveying mechanism 4 provided on the bottom portion 37 has a plurality of friction rollers 41 slightly projecting on the bottom portion 37 through square holes 371 provided on the bottom portion 37, so that the lowermost newspaper. It is comprised so that it may contact the bottom face of this paper NP equally.
As shown in FIG. 5, these friction rollers 41 are arranged at substantially equal intervals on a plurality of conveyance shafts 42 (see FIG. 3) rotatably supported by a frame body below the bottom portion 37.
Here, the friction roller 41 (same as the roller roller 51) will be described. As shown in FIG. 8, the structure of the friction roller 41 is such that the body 411 moves in one direction on a predetermined position of the conveying shaft 42 via the one-way clutch 413. Each of these is fixed freely, and the peripheral surface of the body 411 is covered with a friction member 412 made of an elastic member. Further, a groove 4121 is cut on the surface of the friction member 412 to increase the friction with the newspaper. Note that the friction member 412 can be easily replaced. These transport shafts 42 are connected to each other through gears (not shown) and are connected to a drive mechanism (not shown). When the drive mechanism is activated, the friction rollers 41 advance the newspaper NP. And is configured to idle in the forward direction even when the drive mechanism is stopped. As will be described later, the friction roller 41 has the same configuration as the lower feed roller 512, the suction roller 51, and the feed rollers 62 and 63.
The friction conveying mechanism 4 is configured as described above, and when the driving mechanism is driven, the newspaper book NP in the newspaper stacking unit 3 can be moved in the direction of the front wall 32 (forward). 32, an opening A is provided below the lower tip 331 of the plate 33, and the upper newspaper NP that cannot pass through the opening A is prevented from advancing by the front wall 32 (plate 33), which will be described later. A part of the lower newspaper newspaper NP that can pass through the opening A can pass through the opening A and be taken out of the newspaper stacking unit 3.
[補助送り機構51]
図9に示すように、前壁部32の下流には補助送り機構51が設けられていて、補助送り機構51は、新聞積載部3内の新聞が少なくなったとき、積載された新聞本紙NPの上に載せて新聞本紙NPと摩擦ローラ41との必要な接触圧を得るために用いる錘等を不要にする役目を果たすもので、最後の新聞本紙NPをも、次段のサバキ機構5に送り込めるように設けられるものである。
図9は補助送り機構51を説明するための説明図であるが、図9(a)は概略斜視図であり、図9(b)は概略側面図であるが、図9(b)に示すように、補助送り機構51は、大凡、下送りローラ機構512、上送りローラ機構513で構成され、下送りローラ機構512は、前述した摩擦搬送機構4の摩擦ローラ41の機構と同様構成で、回転駆動される回転シャフト5111上に摩擦ローラ41と同じものである下送りローラ5121を左右に配し下送りローラ5121は摩擦ローラ41と同様、ワンウェイクラッチ413を介して回転シャフト5111に連結し、この回転シャフト5111は摩擦搬送機構4の駆動機構(図示せず)に連結しており、これにより、摩擦搬送機構4を駆動すると下送りローラ5121は摩擦ローラ41と同様、矢印Bの方向に回転駆動し、また、非駆動時でも矢印方向に空転する。
左右の下送りローラ5121の位置は、図5に示すように、後述するサバキローラ521に対して外側にずらしてサバキローラ521と重ならないように近づけ、補助送り機構51の送り位置をサバキ部52のサバキ板522に近づけ、更に、以降説明するように新聞本誌の外側が底部37より浮くのを抑え、更には、サバキ機構5の奥行きを押さえて全体的にコンパクトに構成する目的がある。
[Auxiliary feed mechanism 51]
As shown in FIG. 9, an auxiliary feed mechanism 51 is provided downstream of the front wall portion 32, and the auxiliary feed mechanism 51 is loaded with newspaper sheets NP loaded when the number of newspapers in the newspaper stacking section 3 is low. It serves to eliminate the weight used to obtain the necessary contact pressure between the newspaper book NP and the friction roller 41, and the last newspaper book NP is also transferred to the next stage Sabaki mechanism 5. It is provided so that it can be sent.
FIG. 9 is an explanatory diagram for explaining the auxiliary feed mechanism 51. FIG. 9 (a) is a schematic perspective view, and FIG. 9 (b) is a schematic side view, which is shown in FIG. 9 (b). Thus, the auxiliary feed mechanism 51 is generally composed of a lower feed roller mechanism 512 and an upper feed roller mechanism 513, and the lower feed roller mechanism 512 has the same configuration as that of the friction roller 41 of the friction transport mechanism 4 described above. The lower feed roller 5121 that is the same as the friction roller 41 is arranged on the left and right on the rotational shaft 5111 that is rotationally driven, and the lower feed roller 5121 is connected to the rotary shaft 5111 via the one-way clutch 413, like the friction roller 41, The rotary shaft 5111 is connected to a drive mechanism (not shown) of the friction conveyance mechanism 4 so that when the friction conveyance mechanism 4 is driven, the lower feed roller 5121 rotates in the direction of the arrow B like the friction roller 41. Drives and idles in the direction of the arrow even when not driven .
As shown in FIG. 5, the positions of the left and right lower feed rollers 5121 are shifted outward with respect to the later-described sucker roller 521 so as not to overlap with the sucker roller 521, and the feed position of the auxiliary feed mechanism 51 is changed to the sucker part 52. As described below, there is an object to suppress the outside of the newspaper magazine from floating from the bottom portion 37 and to further reduce the depth of the rust mechanism 5 so as to be compact as a whole.
上送りローラ機構513について述べると、図9(a)に示すように、断面コの字状に板材を折り曲げ形成されたハウジング5132の側面5133上部は上下方向に長穴5134を設け、長穴5134は横構造体38の壁面に設けたブランケット381に設けられた左右の固定軸382が嵌合し、ハウジング5132を回転自在に支持すると共に、側面5133下部にはコロ5135を回転自在に支持しているので、通常は、自重によって図9(a)に示すように下方位置にあるハウジング5132は長穴5134を介して横構造体38の壁面上に沿って、コロ5135と協働して上下動自在に支持される。
なお、ハウジング5132は、前壁部32と横構造体38の間にあって、また、前壁部32のヒンジ321の内側に設けられている。
ハウジング5132の両側面5133下方にはホルダ5136が固定され、このホルダ5136は、図5に示すように、サバキ部52の手前に位置するようにハウジング5132から下送りローラ5121の外側まで延設されていて、このホルダ5136間に支軸5137を貫通し、この支軸5137上に、左右の下送りローラ5121に対向して上送りローラ5131を回転自在に支持し、更にホルダ5136の下面には図9(b)に示すように上送りローラ5131の走行面とほぼ同じ高さになるよう押さえ板5138を設けてサバキ機構5に向かう新聞本紙NPの進行方向の先端が持ち上がらないように構成している。なお、この上送りローラ自体、ホルダ、ハウジング5132等はある程度の重量があり、上送りローラ5131には下向きの押し圧力が付加されるが、後述する必要圧力に応じて、重りやバネ等を付加して押し圧力は調整される。
The upper feed roller mechanism 513 will be described. As shown in FIG. 9A, the upper portion of the side surface 5133 of the housing 5132 formed by bending a plate material in a U-shaped cross section is provided with a long hole 5134 in the vertical direction, and the long hole 5134 is formed. The left and right fixed shafts 382 provided on the blanket 381 provided on the wall surface of the horizontal structure 38 are fitted, and the housing 5132 is rotatably supported, and the roller 5135 is rotatably supported on the lower portion of the side surface 5133. Therefore, normally, the housing 5132 in the lower position moves up and down along the wall surface of the lateral structure 38 through the long hole 5134 as shown in FIG. It is supported freely.
The housing 5132 is provided between the front wall portion 32 and the horizontal structure 38 and is provided inside the hinge 321 of the front wall portion 32.
A holder 5136 is fixed below both side surfaces 5133 of the housing 5132. As shown in FIG. 5, the holder 5136 extends from the housing 5132 to the outside of the lower feed roller 5121 so as to be positioned in front of the surface portion 52. The holder 5136 passes through the support shaft 5137, and the upper feed roller 5131 is rotatably supported on the support shaft 5137 so as to face the left and right lower feed rollers 5121. As shown in FIG. 9B, a pressing plate 5138 is provided so as to be almost the same height as the traveling surface of the upper feed roller 5131 so that the front end in the direction of travel of the newspaper NP heading toward the Sabaki mechanism 5 is not lifted. ing. The upper feed roller itself, the holder, the housing 5132 and the like have a certain amount of weight, and a downward pressing force is applied to the upper feed roller 5131, but a weight, a spring, etc. are added according to the necessary pressure described later. Then, the pressing pressure is adjusted.
上送りローラ機構513は、通常(自然状態では)、図9(b)の実線で示す位置に降りていて、上送りローラ5131は、図示しないが自重と調整バネ等によって下送りローラ5121に適度の下方への圧力で接するように調整されている。そして、駆動機構(摩擦搬送機構4)を駆動すると下送りローラ5121が図9(b)に示す矢印方向に回転すると、上送りローラ5131も従動回転し、摩擦搬送機構4上の最後の一部の新聞本紙NPも、上送りローラ5131と下送りローラ5121間に誘導されるように構成されている。
なお、ここで適度の圧力とは、最後の新聞本紙NPが次段のサバキ機構5を通過でき、かつ、圧力が強すぎて通常のサバキ動作に支障がでない程度の圧力に決められる。なお、ハウジング5132の下端中央部5132aは、新聞本紙NPのカールの影響がないように、上送りローラ5131の送り面より高くなっている(隙間C)。
The upper feed roller mechanism 513 is normally lowered (in a natural state) to the position indicated by the solid line in FIG. 9B, and the upper feed roller 5131 is moderately attached to the lower feed roller 5121 by its own weight and an adjustment spring, although not shown. It is adjusted so that it touches with the pressure below. When the driving mechanism (friction transport mechanism 4) is driven and the lower feed roller 5121 rotates in the direction of the arrow shown in FIG. 9B, the upper feed roller 5131 is also driven to rotate and the last part of the friction transport mechanism 4 is moved. The newspaper book NP is also guided between the upper feed roller 5131 and the lower feed roller 5121.
Here, the appropriate pressure is determined to be a pressure at which the last newspaper NP can pass through the next-stage Sabaki mechanism 5 and the pressure is too strong so that normal Sabaki operation is not hindered. The lower end center portion 5132a of the housing 5132 is higher than the feed surface of the upper feed roller 5131 so as not to be affected by the curling of the newspaper NP (gap C).

The part members 5242a, b move, and the pair of left and right wedge parts 5243 also move toward the side parts. As a result, the wedge portion 5243 is inserted between the bent portions 5237a and b of the housing 5237 fixed to the slide block 5233 and the lower bent portions 5231 and b of the fixing portion 5231 so as to be larger than the interval between the adjustment screws 5241, In proportion to the degree of movement, the housing 5237 (slide block 5233) is lifted to widen the distance between the tip portion 5221 of the sucker plate 522 and the sucker roller 521.
これを図10Dで説明すると、クランク板5244aが回動し、一対のクランクピン5244bが5244b’の位置に移動し、このクランクピン5244bの移動に伴い、一対の左右のスライド板5244aは、クランク溝5244cとスライド溝5246及びスライドピン5247との規制されながら左右の移動し、左右のスライド板5244aに設けられたクサビ部5243も5243’の位置に移動する。この結果、クサビ部5243が、左右のハウジング5237の底面に挿入され、その挿入度合いに比例して、ハウジング5237(スライドブロック5233)が上昇して、サバキ板522の先端部5221は5221’の位置に移動し、先端部522とサバキローラ521との間隔が拡がることになる。
逆に、調整ノブ5245を図10(a)では反時計回りに回せば、サバキ板522の先端部5221とサバキローラ521との間隔を狭めることができる。このようにして、調整ノブ5245を目盛パネル部5245aの目盛に合わせて所望の間隔に設定することができる。なお、図示していないが、目盛パネル部5245aの目盛に合わせてラッチがかかるラチェット機構等を設けて、調整位置を安定させる。
このサバキ板522の先端部5221とサバキローラ521との間隔調整は、夕刊紙、朝刊紙、チラシ入り新聞N1、チラシ入り新聞N2などと段階的に行うほうが煩雑でなく使い易いので、調整ノブ5245の位置を示す目盛パネル部5245aは横構造体38の前面壁面に設けてある。なお、上述した間隔調整機構は一実施例であるから、他の方法を用いても良いことは言うまでもない。
前壁部32、補助送り機構51、およびサバキ機構5については以上であるが、これら機構の位置関係は図1に示すように流れ方向に三層構造であり、概略、左右のサバキ部52の内側に前壁部32のヒンジ321が位置し、更に、ヒンジ321の内側に補助送り機構51のハウジング5132が収まり、全体としてコンパクトに構成されている。因みに、本実施例では、調整ノブ5245による間隔調整は、前壁部32、および、補助送り機構51を上側に持ち上げて行われる。
Referring to FIG. 10D, the crank plate 5244a rotates and the pair of crank pins 5244b moves to the position of 5244b ′. As the crank pins 5244b move, the pair of left and right slide plates 5244a are moved into the crank grooves. The left and right movements of 5244c, slide groove 5246 and slide pin 5247 are regulated, and the wedge portion 5243 provided on the left and right slide plates 5244a also moves to the position of 5243 ′. As a result, the wedge portion 5243 is inserted into the bottom surfaces of the left and right housings 5237, and the housing 5237 (slide block 5233) rises in proportion to the degree of insertion, so that the tip portion 5221 of the buckle plate 522 is positioned at 5221 ′. The distance between the tip 522 and the suction roller 521 is increased.
On the other hand, if the adjustment knob 5245 is turned counterclockwise in FIG. 10A, the distance between the front end portion 5221 of the surface plate 522 and the surface roller 521 can be reduced. In this way, the adjustment knob 5245 can be set to a desired interval in accordance with the scale of the scale panel portion 5245a. Although not shown, a ratchet mechanism or the like that latches according to the scale of the scale panel portion 5245a is provided to stabilize the adjustment position.
It is easier and easier to use the adjustment knob 5245 to adjust the distance between the tip portion 5221 of the plate 522 and the plate roller 521 in stages, such as evening paper, morning paper, newspaper N1 with leaflet, newspaper N2 with leaflet, etc. The scale panel portion 5245a indicating the position is provided on the front wall surface of the horizontal structure 38. It should be noted that the above-described interval adjustment mechanism is an example, and it goes without saying that other methods may be used.
The front wall portion 32, the auxiliary feed mechanism 51, and the buckling mechanism 5 are as described above. The positional relationship of these mechanisms is a three-layer structure in the flow direction as shown in FIG. The hinge 321 of the front wall portion 32 is located inside, and the housing 5132 of the auxiliary feed mechanism 51 is accommodated inside the hinge 321, so that the whole is compact. Incidentally, in this embodiment, the distance adjustment by the adjustment knob 5245 is performed by lifting the front wall portion 32 and the auxiliary feed mechanism 51 upward.
次に、図3、図12を参照して、新聞給送部6と各種センサSについて説明する。
新聞積層部3内の新聞本紙NPの有無を検知するための新聞積載部3の適所に配置されたセンサS1、サバキローラ521の直前での新聞本紙NPの有無、及び、新聞の到来、新聞の通過を判断するためサバキローラ521の直手前(上流側)に設置されたセンサS2、サバキローラ521の下流の直後に配置されたセンサS3、また、以降、説明する給送ローラの下流の直後にはセンサS4が配置される。
これらS1〜S4のセンサは、図13(a)のS4に示されるように投光素子T・受光素子Jからなる非接触センサが用いられ、各センサS1〜4は、図示しないが、適正な位置に配置されている。
Next, the newspaper feeding unit 6 and various sensors S will be described with reference to FIGS.
A sensor S1 disposed in a proper position of the newspaper stacking unit 3 for detecting the presence or absence of the newspaper NP in the newspaper stacking unit 3, the presence or absence of the newspaper NP immediately before the Sabaki roller 521, the arrival of the newspaper, the passage of the newspaper Sensor S2 installed immediately before (upstream side) of the roller roller 521, a sensor S3 disposed immediately downstream of the roller roller 521, and a sensor S4 immediately after downstream of the feeding roller described below. Is placed.
As the sensors of S1 to S4, non-contact sensors comprising a light projecting element T and a light receiving element J are used as shown in S4 of FIG. 13 (a). Placed in position.
サバキ機構5の後段には、このサバキ機構5から取り出した新聞本紙NPを新聞包装機9などの次段に送給するための新聞給送部6を備えている。
図13(a)に示すように、新聞給送部6は、新聞本紙NPを挟持して次段に送り出すために、下摩擦ローラ62と上摩擦ローラ63による給送ローラ対とその駆動機構(図示せず)が設けられている。このような機構は、一般的なものであるから、簡単に説明するが、下側の下摩擦ローラ62は、底部37の下方の左右側板(図示せず)間に回転自在に支持された下給送シャフト64上に図8に示す摩擦ローラ41と同じものが同じ構成で左右に振り分けて配置されており、上摩擦ローラ63は、左右側板311の外側に設けた支軸(図示せず)上に回動自在に支持された左右の搬送レバー(図示せず)の先端に回転自在に支持された上給送シャフト65上で摩擦ローラ41と同じものが同じ構成で、下摩擦ローラ62に対応した位置に配置し、上下のそれぞれの給送シャフト64,65は、駆動機構に連結していて、駆動機構を起動すると上下の摩擦ローラ62,63は図中矢印の方向に回転し、また、駆動機構を停止しても空転できるようになっている。
A newspaper feeding section 6 for feeding the newspaper NP taken out from the Sabaki mechanism 5 to the next stage such as the newspaper packaging machine 9 is provided at the subsequent stage of the Sabaki mechanism 5.
As shown in FIG. 13 (a), the newspaper feeder 6 feeds a pair of feed rollers by a lower friction roller 62 and an upper friction roller 63 and its drive mechanism (in order to sandwich the newspaper NP and feed it to the next stage. (Not shown). Since such a mechanism is general, it will be briefly described. The lower friction roller 62 on the lower side is a lower support rotatably supported between left and right side plates (not shown) below the bottom portion 37. The same components as the friction roller 41 shown in FIG. 8 are arranged on the feed shaft 64 in the same configuration and are distributed to the left and right. The upper friction roller 63 is a support shaft (not shown) provided outside the left and right side plates 311. The same configuration as the friction roller 41 on the upper feed shaft 65 rotatably supported at the tips of left and right transport levers (not shown) supported rotatably on the lower friction roller 62 The upper and lower feed shafts 64, 65 are connected to the drive mechanism, and when the drive mechanism is activated, the upper and lower friction rollers 62, 63 rotate in the direction of the arrows in the figure. Even if the drive mechanism is stopped, it can be idled.
上摩擦(給送)ローラ63は図12(a)の矢印で示すように、新聞本紙の厚さに応じて上下し、また、上摩擦(給送)ローラ63を下摩擦(給送)ローラ62側に付勢して適度な挟持圧を得るために左右の搬送レバーには付勢バネが設けられ、また、上下摩擦(給送)ローラ62,63は前記摩擦ローラ41と同じ物を用いて新聞本紙NPとの摩擦を大きくするように配慮するとともに、ローラ部品の共通化を図っている。
このように、ローラ部品は同じ物が使用されるが、新聞給送部6の上下摩擦(給送)ローラ62,63の周速は、より早い速度で新聞包装機9に給送するようにするため、摩擦搬送機構4の駆動機構(図示せず)とは別個の駆動機構が使用されている。
このような新聞本紙送給装置1では、前述したように中央機構部2は後方にスライドできる構成になっていて、後段の新聞包装機9のロールフィルムFa、Fbの交換や、ジャム処理に対応することができる。また、前壁部32、補助送り機構51、サバキ板522も上方に回動退避でき、ジャムやメンテナンスに対応できるとともに、一部ずつの包装、すなわち、分厚い新聞や、逆に、超薄新聞の包装時などの手差し包装を可能にする。
The upper friction (feed) roller 63 moves up and down according to the thickness of the newspaper as shown by the arrow in FIG. 12A, and the upper friction (feed) roller 63 is moved to the lower friction (feed) roller. The left and right transport levers are provided with urging springs to urge toward the 62 side to obtain an appropriate clamping pressure, and the upper and lower friction (feed) rollers 62 and 63 are the same as the friction roller 41. In order to increase the friction with the newspaper NP, the roller parts are used in common.
In this way, the same roller parts are used, but the peripheral speeds of the upper and lower friction (feed) rollers 62 and 63 of the newspaper feeding section 6 are fed to the newspaper packaging machine 9 at a higher speed. Therefore, a drive mechanism separate from the drive mechanism (not shown) of the friction conveyance mechanism 4 is used.
In the newspaper book feeding apparatus 1 as described above, the central mechanism unit 2 is configured to be slidable rearward as described above, and is compatible with the exchange of the roll films Fa and Fb of the newspaper packaging machine 9 at the rear stage and the jam processing. can do. In addition, the front wall 32, the auxiliary feed mechanism 51, and the buckle plate 522 can also be rotated and retracted upward, and can deal with jams and maintenance, and can be partly packed, that is, thick newspapers, Allows manual wrapping during packaging.
次に、全体構成でのそれぞれの動作について説明する。
まず、新聞本紙送給装置1で自動給紙される新聞本紙NPによって、予め、前壁部32の開口Aの高さ、サバキ板52とサバキローラ521との間隔調整の設定を行う。
開口Aの高さ調整は、一次サバキの効果もあるが、サバキ板522に多くの新聞が当たることによるサバキ板522の必要以上の撓みや最下層の新聞本紙Npが通過に際して上昇したサバキ板522が、最下層の新聞本紙Npが通過後、残った新聞NPの圧力によってサバキ板522が元位置に戻る際の下降阻害を防止する作用も期待できる。
なお、サバキ板522のサバキ作用については、以降詳しく説明する。
図11(a)は適正に調整されたときの様子を示すが、これに対して図11(b)に示すように、開口Aが広く、サバキ板522に多くの新聞本紙NPがあたると、サバキ板522を大きく反らせ、新聞本紙NP先端のサバキ効果を悪化させ、また、図11(c)に示すように、新聞通過によって一度上昇したサバキ板522の元位置への下降を妨げる虞があるからである、従って、開口Aの間隔(高さ)調整は、新聞本紙NPの厚さによって異なるが、チラシの入っていない薄い新聞本紙NPほど、前述した理由により調整の必要があり、普通2〜3部程度通過できるように開口の高さが調整される。
Next, each operation in the overall configuration will be described.
First, the height of the opening A of the front wall portion 32 and the interval adjustment between the suction plate 52 and the suction roller 521 are set in advance by the newspaper book NP automatically fed by the newspaper supply device 1.
Although the height adjustment of the opening A also has the effect of a primary sack, the squirrel plate 522 that has risen when the bottom plate newspaper Np passes more than necessary due to the bending of the sack plate 522 due to many newspapers hitting the sack plate 522. However, it can also be expected to prevent the lower plate 522 from being hindered when the bottom plate 522 returns to the original position due to the pressure of the remaining newspaper NP after the lowermost newspaper book Np has passed.
The sabbing action of the sabot board 522 will be described in detail later.
FIG. 11 (a) shows the state when adjusted properly. On the other hand, as shown in FIG. 11 (b), when the opening A is wide and the paper board 522 is exposed to many newspapers NP, As shown in FIG. 11 (c), there is a possibility that the lower plate 522 is greatly warped to deteriorate the lower plate effect at the front end of the newspaper book NP, and as shown in FIG. Therefore, the adjustment of the interval (height) of the opening A differs depending on the thickness of the newspaper NP, but the thinner the newspaper NP without the leaflet, the more adjustment is necessary for the reason described above. The height of the opening is adjusted so that about 3 parts can pass.
次に、サバキ板522とサバキローラ521の間隔調整であるが、この場合、厚い新聞ほど間隔を開けると効果がある。
図11(d)は、厚い新聞本紙NPがサバキ板522を通過するときを示すが、サバキ板522が大きく撓み、このとき矢印の方向に力が加わり、サバキ板522はスライド機構523により上昇するように構成されるが、新聞本紙NPの先端の状況等により、撓みの大きさ、上昇タイミングにバラツキがでる虞があり、サバキ板522の大きな撓みと、その反発力によって、新聞本紙NPを傷める虞があり、これを回避するために予め、図11(e)に示すように、サバキ板522とサバキローラ521との間隔を広げるようにするためである。
このようなサバキ方式の性質上、厚い新聞ほどその新聞本紙同士の間隔が大きいから調整がラフでも分離精度が得られ、チラシの入った厚い新聞本紙NPの場合、通常、目安的に新聞の厚みの半分程度に間隔調整されれば良い。図11(f)は、このように調整された場合のサバキ板522の撓みを示し、新聞本紙NPが傷む虞を回避できる。なお、当然のことであるが開口Aは、新聞本紙NPの厚さによって調整されるが、新聞本紙が厚くなるほど、開口Aに、本来のサバキ効果(一部分離効果)を期待できるようになり、当然、開口Aの高さは新聞本紙の厚さよりやや広めの調整である。
なお、厚い新聞本紙NPほど開口A間隔を広げることになるが、例えば、盆暮れなどチラシが多い厚い新聞本紙NPは、20mm以上にもなり、このような場合は、前述したように、手差し包装が望ましい。
Next, the interval adjustment between the sheet plate 522 and the sheet roller 521 is performed. In this case, the thicker the newspaper, the more effective.
FIG. 11 (d) shows the case where the thick newspaper NP passes through the plate 522. The plate 522 is greatly bent, and at this time, a force is applied in the direction of the arrow, and the plate 522 is raised by the slide mechanism 523. However, depending on the state of the leading edge of the newspaper book NP, there is a possibility that the magnitude of the deflection and the rising timing may vary, and the newspaper board NP is damaged by the large deflection of the buckle plate 522 and its repulsive force. In order to avoid this, as shown in FIG. 11 (e), the gap between the plate 522 and the plate roller 521 is increased in advance.
Due to the nature of the Sabaki method, the thicker the newspaper, the greater the distance between the newspapers, so that even if the adjustment is rough, the separation accuracy can be obtained. The interval may be adjusted to about half of the distance. FIG. 11 (f) shows the flexure of the plate 522 when adjusted in this way, and the possibility of damaging the newspaper book NP can be avoided. As a matter of course, the opening A is adjusted by the thickness of the newspaper NP. However, the thicker the newspaper, the more the original Abakaki effect (partial separation effect) can be expected in the opening A. Naturally, the height of the opening A is adjusted slightly wider than the thickness of the newspaper.
The thicker newspaper NP will increase the opening A interval. For example, a thick newspaper NP with a large number of leaflets, such as a bonfire, will be 20 mm or more. desirable.
次に、本発明の実施例である新聞本紙送給装置1の一連の動作を説明するが、図13は、新聞積載部3に新聞本紙NPを積載し、最下層の新聞本紙NPが取り出され、次段に送り出される様子を段階的に説明する説明図である。
この過程は、大きくは、新聞積載部3から最下層の新聞本紙NPを新聞給送部6に送るまでの過程で、次に、新聞給送部6から次段に給送する過程に分けられる。なお、新聞給送部6に新聞が送られたとき、既に、次段から要求信号が出ているときは、上記過程は連続的に行われる。
図14には自動給紙のタイムチャートの一例を示し、図13と共に説明する。
まず、操作パネル23上のスタートスイッチを押下すると、まず、摩擦搬送機構4を駆動し、新聞積載部3の下層の新聞本紙NPを新聞給送部6に送り出す。前述したように、摩擦搬送機構4を駆動すると下送りローラ5121、および、サバキローラ521も共に駆動される。このとき、同時に、新聞積載部3から送り出され、サバキ機構5によって送り出される新聞本紙NPを受け取るために新聞給送部6も起動される(図14でのA)。
Next, a series of operations of the newspaper book feeding apparatus 1 according to the embodiment of the present invention will be described. FIG. 13 shows the newspaper book NP loaded on the newspaper stacking unit 3 and the lowermost newspaper book NP is taken out. It is explanatory drawing explaining a mode that it sends out to the next stage in steps.
This process is roughly divided into a process from the newspaper stacking unit 3 to the lowermost newspaper book NP being sent to the newspaper feeding unit 6, and then being fed from the newspaper feeding unit 6 to the next stage. . When a newspaper is sent to the newspaper feeding unit 6 and a request signal has already been issued from the next stage, the above process is continuously performed.
FIG. 14 shows an example of a time chart of automatic paper feeding, which will be described together with FIG.
First, when the start switch on the operation panel 23 is pressed, the friction conveyance mechanism 4 is first driven to send out the newspaper book NP in the lower layer of the newspaper stacking unit 3 to the newspaper feeding unit 6. As described above, when the friction conveyance mechanism 4 is driven, the lower feed roller 5121 and the suction roller 521 are also driven. At the same time, the newspaper feeder 6 is also activated to receive the newspaper book NP sent out from the newspaper stacking unit 3 and sent out by the Sabaki mechanism 5 (A in FIG. 14).
ここで、図13の(a)は新聞積載部3に新聞本紙NPを積載した直後の状態を示す図であり下層の新聞本紙NPはサバキ板522に到達していない。図13の(f)は既に、摩擦搬送機構4から新聞が取り出す工程が行われ次の新聞を取り出す段の状態を示す図で、2回目以降の摩擦搬送機構4のサバキ動作の開始はこの状態から始まる。また、図14は、このときのセンサS1〜S4の状態と摩擦駆動機構4及び新聞送給部6の駆動を表すタイムチャートの図であり、これらを参照して、サバキ作動を経時的に説明する。
なお、図示しないが、新聞積載部3にはエンプティ(空)センサが設けてあって、新聞積載部3がエンプティ(空)の時は、安全のため操作パネル23のスタートスイッチを押下しても摩擦搬送機構4が駆動されないように構成されている。
Here, FIG. 13A shows a state immediately after the newspaper NP is loaded on the newspaper stacking unit 3, and the lower newspaper NP has not reached the bottom plate 522. FIG. 13 (f) is a diagram showing the state of the stage in which the newspaper is already taken out from the friction transport mechanism 4 and the next newspaper is taken out. start from. FIG. 14 is a time chart showing the states of the sensors S1 to S4 and the driving of the friction drive mechanism 4 and the newspaper feeding unit 6 at this time. To do.
Although not shown, the newspaper stacking unit 3 is provided with an empty (empty) sensor. When the newspaper stacking unit 3 is empty (empty), even if the start switch of the operation panel 23 is pressed for safety. The friction conveyance mechanism 4 is configured not to be driven.
図13の(a)の状態から、摩擦搬送機構4が駆動され、新聞積載部3内の新聞本紙NPは前方に移動するが、開口Aから上側の新聞本紙NPは前壁部32に妨げられて停止し、開口Aには最下層から開口Aの高さ分の数部の新聞本紙NPが通過するが、このとき、開口Aの高さは、夕刊紙などの薄い新聞は最下層から2〜3部通過するように調整されているので2〜3部の新聞本紙NPが開口Aを通過する。
次に、図13(b)に示すように、開口Aを通過した新聞本紙NPの先端は、補助送り機構51に達し、補助送り機構51の上送りローラ5131を持ち上げながら前進し、サバキ機構5に到達する。なお、このとき、制御装置は開口Aとサバキ板522との間に設けたセンサS2で監視し、センサS2の状態が新聞本紙NPが無しから有りに状態変化するのを確認する。そして、摩擦搬送機構4を駆動して所定時間経過しても状態が変化しない場合は、エラーを表示し摩擦搬送機構4の駆動を停止する。
From the state of FIG. 13A, the friction transport mechanism 4 is driven, and the newspaper book NP in the newspaper stacking unit 3 moves forward, but the upper newspaper book NP from the opening A is blocked by the front wall 32. The newspaper A NP passes through the opening A from the lowermost layer by the height of the opening A. At this time, the height of the opening A is 2 for thin newspapers such as evening papers from the lowermost layer. Since it is adjusted to pass through 3 parts, 2 to 3 parts of newspaper NP pass through the opening A.
Next, as shown in FIG. 13 (b), the front end of the newspaper NP that has passed through the opening A reaches the auxiliary feed mechanism 51, and moves forward while lifting the upper feed roller 5131 of the auxiliary feed mechanism 51, so that the suction mechanism 5 To reach. At this time, the control device monitors the sensor S2 provided between the opening A and the buckle plate 522, and confirms that the state of the sensor S2 changes from the absence of the newspaper NP to the presence. If the state does not change after the friction conveyance mechanism 4 is driven and a predetermined time elapses, an error is displayed and the drive of the friction conveyance mechanism 4 is stopped.
次に、図13(c)に示すように、新聞本紙NPの先端はサバキ板522に達し、新聞本紙NPの先端がサバキ板522の抵抗を受けるが、サバキ板522がバネ部材で構成されているため、図示するように、サバキ板522の先端部5211を下流に押し込み下流に進む。
このとき、バネ部材のサバキ板522とサバキローラ521で構成されるサバキ部52は、図13(c)に示すように、バネ性による反りとサバキローラ521の曲率Rで点線で示すようなクサビ形状を呈するが、最下層の新聞本紙(NP1)は、この先端はサバキ板522の矢印方向の反発力を受け新聞本紙(NP1)の先端下面はサバキローラ521に次第に強く接触するようになり、新聞本紙(NP1)の先端が前方に駆動され、サバキ板522を更に前方に撓ませ、新聞本紙(NP1)の先端はサバキ板522とサバキローラ521の間に入り込み、終わりには、最下層の新聞本紙(NP1)の先端はサバキ板522とサバキローラ521で形成されるクサビ形状から飛び出し、サバキ板522の先端部5221をくぐりぬけて前方に進む。
このとき、最下層の上に位置する新聞本紙(NP2)の先端も、サバキ板522のクサビ形状によって最下層の新聞本紙(NP1)側に押されるが、図13(c)に示すように、摩擦の大きいサバキローラ521でなく、それよりも摩擦が少ない新聞本紙NPの接触であり、最下層の新聞本紙(NP1)が、その上の新聞本紙(NP2)を前方に払い出すことはなく、新聞本紙(NP2)の先端はサバキ板522に当たって静止し、やがて、新聞本紙NP間の静止摩擦による抵抗は開放されて捌かれ、最下層の新聞のみがサバキ板522の先端部5221を通過することになる。
Next, as shown in FIG. 13 (c), the front end of the newspaper book NP reaches the bottom plate 522, and the front end of the newspaper book NP receives the resistance of the bottom plate 522, but the back plate 522 is configured by a spring member. Therefore, as shown in the drawing, the tip portion 5211 of the buckle plate 522 is pushed downstream and proceeds downstream.
At this time, as shown in FIG. 13 (c), the surface portion 52 composed of the spring plate 522 and the surface roller 521 has a wedge shape as indicated by the dotted line with the curvature due to the spring property and the curvature R of the surface roller 521. As shown, the lowermost newspaper book (NP1) receives a repulsive force in the direction of the arrow on the bottom plate 522, and the lower surface of the front end of the newspaper book (NP1) gradually comes into contact with the bottom roller 521. The leading edge of NP1) is driven forward, further bending the paper board 522 forward, the leading edge of the newspaper book (NP1) enters between the paper board 522 and the paper roller 521, and at the end, the bottom newspaper paper (NP1) ) Jumps out from the wedge shape formed by the crust plate 522 and the crust roller 521, passes through the front end portion 5221 of the crust plate 522, and advances forward.
At this time, the front end of the newspaper book (NP2) located on the lowermost layer is also pushed to the lowermost newspaper book (NP1) side by the wedge shape of the bottom plate 522, but as shown in FIG. This is a contact with the newspaper NP which is not the friction roller 521 with a large friction, and with less friction than that, and the lowermost newspaper book (NP1) does not pay out the newspaper book (NP2) on top of it. The leading edge of the paper (NP2) hits against the paper board 522, and eventually the resistance due to static friction between the newspaper papers NP is released and only the lowest-level newspaper passes through the leading edge 5221 of the paper board 522. Become.
ここで、本発明のサバキ機構の動作について、図23を用いていくつかの従来方式と比較する。
(1)図23(a)は、サバキ板aだけでサバキローラ(521)が無い場合であるが、後方から押される新聞本紙NPの先端は図に示すようサバキ板aが反って先細りのクサビ状を形成するが、このように、クサビ型の場合は、クサビによる圧力は新聞同士の抵抗を益々大きくするとともに柔らかい新聞の先端は変形圧縮されて詰まり動けなくなってしまう。本発明のサバキ機構のサバキ板522とサバキローラ521との組み合わせが極めて重要で、前述したように、下層の新聞本紙(NP1)だけを払い出すことができ、この上下の重なり合う新聞本紙(NP)を分離する力は、クサビ板522によって新聞本紙NPとサバキローラ521との圧接力が増すほど強くなり、サバキ板522の先端部5221を更に押し出していく効果を発揮する。
なお、サバキ板522はサバキローラ521の頂点5213より上流側に位置していると、サバキ板522が撓んだときサバキローラ521の曲率Rで形成されるクサビ形状が先細りになり更に上記効果をより発揮する。
(2)図23(b)は、斜めの板(邪魔板)bでクサビを形成し、前方に被サバキ物の厚さ分の隙間cを設けたもので有るが、固く変形し難いカードや、チップなどで有効であるが、新聞本紙の折り畳み部のように、紙束では柔らかく変形しやすいのものでは、新聞本紙NPの先端が重なり合って圧縮し、詰まると抜けなくなるという不都合が生じる。このように邪魔板bの角度が小さい(鋭角)ものも考えられるが、仮に、サバキローラを適用したとしても、この構成では、新聞本紙NPの重送の虞があり、本構成のような効果は得られない。
(3)図23(c)は、サバキローラdの上方に、クサビを形成するテーパeのついたサバキ部材fを上下動可能に支持し適度な圧力(サバキ圧)で付勢したものであるが、新聞店に直送されたばかりの新聞本紙NP同士の摩擦は強く、サバキ圧が弱いと捌けず重送が起き、強すぎると新聞本紙NPが抜けずサバキ圧の調整が難しい。
以上、従来方式を説明したが、以上から考察できるように、本発明のサバキ板521は柔らかすぎると、クサビが鋭角になり重送の虞があり、硬すぎるとクサビ効果がでなくなるので、実験により適度な撓みを得られるような素材、厚さ、幅、長さ等が決定される。
また、前述したように、厚い新聞ほどサバキ易いので薄い新聞本紙を基準に考えたほうがよい。また、本実施例においては、サバキ板521はヒンジ5136を介して取り付けられているので、交換容易性であり、数種のサバキ板521を交換式にしても良い。
Here, the operation of the Sabaki mechanism of the present invention will be compared with some conventional systems using FIG.
(1) FIG. 23 (a) shows a case where only the claw plate a is not provided with a baffle roller (521), but the front end of the newspaper book NP pushed from behind is a wedge-shaped taper as the crevice plate a is warped as shown in the figure. In this way, in the case of the wedge type, the pressure caused by the wedge increases the resistance between the newspapers, and the tip of the soft newspaper is deformed and compressed and cannot be moved. The combination of the plate 522 and the plate roller 521 of the plate mechanism of the present invention is extremely important, and as described above, only the lower level newspaper (NP1) can be dispensed, and the upper and lower overlapping newspaper pages (NP) The separating force becomes stronger as the press force between the newspaper NP and the roller roller 521 is increased by the wedge plate 522, and the effect of further pushing the tip portion 5221 of the blade plate 522 is exhibited.
In addition, if the surface plate 522 is positioned upstream from the apex 5213 of the surface roller 521, the wedge shape formed by the curvature R of the surface roller 521 is tapered when the surface plate 522 is bent, and the above effect is further exhibited. To do.
(2) FIG. 23 (b) shows that a wedge is formed by an oblique plate (baffle plate) b and a gap c corresponding to the thickness of the material to be cut is provided in front, Although it is effective for a chip or the like, a paper bundle that is soft and easily deformed, such as a folding section of a newspaper book, has a disadvantage in that the leading edge of the newspaper book NP overlaps and compresses, and cannot be removed when clogged. Although the baffle plate b may have a small angle (acute angle) in this way, even if the Sabaki roller is applied, there is a risk of double feeding of the newspaper book NP in this configuration. I can't get it.
(3) FIG. 23 (c) shows that a crust member f having a taper e forming a wedge is supported above the claw roller d so as to be movable up and down and is urged with an appropriate pressure (crust pressure). Friction between newspaper NPs that have just been sent directly to the newspaper store is strong, and if the pressure is low, double feeding will not occur, and if it is too strong, it will be difficult to adjust the pressure.
As described above, the conventional method has been described, but as can be considered from the above, if the soft plate 521 of the present invention is too soft, the wedge has an acute angle and there is a risk of double feeding, and if it is too hard, the wedge effect is not achieved. Thus, the material, thickness, width, length, etc. that can obtain an appropriate deflection are determined.
Also, as mentioned above, thicker newspapers are easier to boil, so it is better to consider thin newspapers as a reference. Further, in the present embodiment, the grill plate 521 is attached via the hinge 5136, so that it is easy to replace, and several types of the kit plate 521 may be exchangeable.
さて、本発明の実施例に戻って、サバキ部52を通過した後の工程を説明する。
図13(e)に示すように、サバキ板522を通過するとセンサ3で検知されるが、摩擦搬送機構4が駆動しセンサS2が検知されているので、所定時間経てもセンサS3が検知されないとき、同様、エラー表示とともに、摩擦搬送機構4の駆動を停止する。
新聞本紙NP1の先端がセンサS3に達し、更に進んで、摩擦(給送)ローラ62,63対に達し、更に、前方のセンサS4で検知されると、図13(e)に示すように、摩擦搬送機構4と新聞給送部6の駆動を停止し、取り出し工程を終了する。(図14のB)
このことを更に詳しく説明すると、新聞本紙NP1がセンサS4で検知されている状態では、次のサバキ動作は行われず、次段である新聞包装機9側がレディ信号を発して挿入可能となると、図13(e)の状態から、新聞給送部6のみを駆動し、(図14のC)上下摩擦(給送)ローラ62,63対のみを駆動し、新聞本紙NP1を新聞包装機9内に送り出し、新聞本紙NP1の先端が新聞包装機9内に自動的に引き込まれて新聞本紙NP1の後端が摩擦(給送)ローラ(62.63)対を離れた後、センサS4を通過すると新聞給送部6の送出動作を終了し駆動機構611を停止する。(図14(f))。なお、通常、新聞包装機9においては、新聞本紙NP1の先端が新聞包装機9内のセンサで検知されると、レディ信号はOFFとなる。また、このとき、新聞給送部6を駆動してから所定時間内に新聞本紙NP1の後端がセンサS4を通過しないときは、同様、エラー表示とともに、駆動を停止する。また、新聞包装機9がジャムなど異常を検知しエラー信号を発した時、エラー表示とともに、駆動を停止する。
新聞本紙NP1の後端がセンサS4を通過すると、図14のタイムチャートAの状態に進んで、次の新聞本紙N2のサバキ動作に入る。このときの初期状態は、前述したように、図13(f)で示される。このようにして、自動給紙が連続する。
Now, returning to the embodiment of the present invention, the process after passing through the surface portion 52 will be described.
As shown in FIG. 13 (e), the sensor 3 is detected when passing through the buckle plate 522, but the sensor S3 is not detected even after a predetermined time since the friction conveying mechanism 4 is driven and the sensor S2 is detected. Similarly, the drive of the friction conveyance mechanism 4 is stopped together with the error display.
When the front end of the newspaper NP1 reaches the sensor S3 and further advances to reach the friction (feed) rollers 62 and 63 pair, and further detected by the front sensor S4, as shown in FIG. The drive of the friction conveyance mechanism 4 and the newspaper feeding unit 6 is stopped, and the take-out process is finished. (B in FIG. 14)
This will be explained in more detail. When the newspaper book NP1 is detected by the sensor S4, the next sheeting operation is not performed, and the newspaper packaging machine 9 side, which is the next stage, issues a ready signal and can be inserted. 13 (e), only the newspaper feeding section 6 is driven, (C in FIG. 14) only the upper and lower friction (feeding) rollers 62, 63 are driven, and the newspaper NP1 is put into the newspaper packaging machine 9. The newspaper paper NP1 is automatically drawn into the newspaper packaging machine 9 and the trailing edge of the newspaper paper NP1 leaves the friction (feed) roller (62.63) pair and then passes the sensor S4. The sending operation of the unit 6 is finished and the drive mechanism 611 is stopped. (FIG. 14 (f)). Normally, in the newspaper packaging machine 9, when the leading edge of the newspaper book NP1 is detected by a sensor in the newspaper packaging machine 9, the ready signal is turned off. At this time, if the rear end of the newspaper book NP1 does not pass the sensor S4 within a predetermined time after driving the newspaper feeder 6, the drive is stopped together with an error display. Further, when the newspaper packaging machine 9 detects an abnormality such as a jam and issues an error signal, the driving is stopped together with an error display.
When the trailing edge of the newspaper NP1 passes the sensor S4, the process proceeds to the state of time chart A in FIG. The initial state at this time is shown in FIG. In this way, automatic paper feeding continues.
こうして、以後は、新聞本紙NPが積載されている限り、図13(c)から図(f)の状態を繰り返し、また、新聞積載部3に新聞本紙が残った状態で新聞積載部3に追い積み給紙されると自動給紙は継続し、図13(c)から図(f)の状態を繰り返すが、最後の一部が送り出されてエンプティになると自動給紙工程は終了する。そして、例えば、追い積みが送れて、新聞本紙NPの積載が無くなれば、エンプティが検出されて自動給紙工程は終了するが、追い積みをして操作パネル23のスタートスイッチを押下すれば図13(a)の状態から、上記の動作を繰り返す。   Thus, thereafter, as long as the newspaper book NP is loaded, the state of FIG. 13C to FIG. 13F is repeated, and the newspaper book is left in the newspaper stacking unit 3 and the newspaper stacking unit 3 is followed. When the stacked sheets are fed, the automatic sheet feeding continues and the state shown in FIG. 13C to FIG. 13F is repeated. However, when the last part is sent out and becomes empty, the automatic sheet feeding process ends. Then, for example, when the stacking is sent and the newspaper NP is not stacked, the empty is detected and the automatic sheet feeding process ends. However, when the stacking is performed and the start switch of the operation panel 23 is pressed, FIG. The above operation is repeated from the state of (a).
以上が、サバキ部52の基本的な動作であるが、これをスムーズに作動させるために、本発明の実施例では、補助送り機構51が設けられている。
補助送り機構51の主な役割は、新聞積載部3内の新聞が少なくなったとき、特に薄い新聞本紙などの重量が小さい新聞本紙では、摩擦ローラ41との接触が弱く、滑りやすく、新聞本紙の先端がサバキ板522に当接しても撓ませることができない。通常、新聞本紙の上に錘Gを置くなりするが、追い積みの度に錘を置き換えなくてはならず煩雑である。補助送り機構51はこのような問題を解消するために設けられる。
この補助送り機構51の動作を説明するために、新聞積載部3内に2〜3部の新聞本紙NPになったときの動作を説明するものである。
図15(a)は、新聞積載部3に新聞本紙NPを一部だけ残した状態を説明するもので、この状態で摩擦搬送機構4を駆動すると、図15(b)に示すように補助送り機構51は矢印の方向に回転して新聞本紙NPの先端を受け入れる。更に進んで、図15(c)に示すように、サバキ部52に進んだ新聞本紙NPの先端は、補助送り機構51に挟持されてサバキ板522に達するが、このとき、押さえ板5138が新聞本紙NPの先端を下方に押さえてサバキ板522の先端5221に誘導するので、例えうねった薄い新聞本紙NPあっても、サバキ板522を前方に撓ませてサバキ板522とサバキローラ521とでクサビ状を形成し、その結果、前述したように、新聞本紙NPの先端はサバキローラ521によって下流前方に払い出される。
The above is the basic operation of the buckle portion 52. In order to make this operate smoothly, the auxiliary feed mechanism 51 is provided in the embodiment of the present invention.
The main role of the auxiliary feed mechanism 51 is when there are few newspapers in the newspaper stacking unit 3, especially with light newspapers such as thin newspapers, the contact with the friction roller 41 is weak and slippery. Even if the tip of the plate abuts against the plate 522, it cannot be bent. Usually, the weight G is placed on the newspaper, but the weight must be replaced every time it is loaded. The auxiliary feed mechanism 51 is provided to solve such a problem.
In order to explain the operation of the auxiliary feeding mechanism 51, the operation when two to three copies of newspaper book NP are provided in the newspaper stacking unit 3 will be described.
FIG. 15A illustrates a state in which only a part of the newspaper book NP is left in the newspaper stacking unit 3. When the friction conveyance mechanism 4 is driven in this state, auxiliary feeding as shown in FIG. 15B is performed. The mechanism 51 rotates in the direction of the arrow and receives the front end of the newspaper NP. Further, as shown in FIG. 15 (c), the leading end of the newspaper book NP that has advanced to the surface portion 52 is sandwiched by the auxiliary feed mechanism 51 and reaches the surface plate 522. At this time, the presser plate 5138 is moved to the newspaper. Since the leading edge of the paper NP is pressed down and guided to the leading edge 5221 of the paper board 522, even if there is a wavy thin newspaper paper NP, the paper board 522 is bent forward and the paper board 522 and the paper roller 521 form a wedge shape. As a result, as described above, the leading edge of the newspaper book NP is discharged downstream and forward by the roller roller 521.
図16(a)は、新聞積層部3に新聞本紙NPを二部積載した状態を説明するもので、新聞本紙NPの二部の先端が、補助送り機構51を通過してサバキ部52に到達した場合を示すものである。ここで、摩擦搬送機構4が駆動されると、図16(b)に示すように、最下層の新聞本紙NP1は、前述同様に、サバキローラ521によって下流前方に払い出されるが、最下層の上に位置する新聞本紙NP2は、サバキ板522によって進行を阻止されて静止する。三部積載した場合でも、同様である。
このように、補助送り機構51が作用するためには、上送りローラ513の下方への圧力は、新聞本紙NP1の先端がサバキ板522を通過するために必要な挟持圧力と、最下層の新聞本紙NP1の上に位置する新聞本紙NP2が最下層の新聞本紙NP1と分離できるような強すぎない圧力との間で調整されている。
FIG. 16A illustrates a state in which two newspaper booklets NP are stacked on the newspaper stacking unit 3, and the leading ends of the two newspaper book papers NP pass through the auxiliary feed mechanism 51 and reach the sucker unit 52. This shows the case. Here, when the friction conveyance mechanism 4 is driven, as shown in FIG. 16B, the lowermost newspaper book NP1 is discharged to the downstream front by the roller roller 521 as described above, but on the lowermost layer. The newspaper book NP2 that is positioned is stopped by the buckling plate 522 and stops. The same is true even when three parts are loaded.
Thus, in order for the auxiliary feed mechanism 51 to operate, the pressure downward of the upper feed roller 513 is the clamping pressure required for the leading edge of the newspaper book NP1 to pass through the paper plate 522, and the lowermost newspaper. The pressure is adjusted so that the newspaper book NP2 positioned on the book sheet NP1 is not too strong to be separated from the lowermost newspaper book NP1.
次に、サバキ作用をするサバキ部52について、その作用を詳しく説明するが、サバキ板522をスライドするスライド機構423、及び、サバキ板とサバキローラとの間隔調整について、図17、図18に沿って説明する。
まず、通常の厚さの新聞本紙NPに対するサバキ作用を図17に沿って説明する。図17では、サバキ板522とサバキローラ521との間隔より厚い新聞本紙NP1(通常の平均的厚さ)がサバキ板522を通過するときサバキ板522を上方に押し上げる様子を示す説明図である。
図17での(a)は、既に説明したように、最下層の新聞本紙NP1の先端がサバキ板522の先端部5221を押しながら、サバキ板522を撓ませると共にサバキローラ521との接触圧を高めていく様子を示すものである。このような状態になると、新聞本紙NP1の先端はサバキローラ521に払い出されるように下流に進み、サバキ板を撓ませ終わりには、図17の(b)に示すように、サバキローラ521から抜け出すように前進する。このとき、チラシの入った厚い新聞本紙NPでは、図17の(c)に示すように、サバキ板522の先端部5221の撓みが大きくなって、図示するように、スライドブロック5233をも上方に押し上げるため、サバキ板522の撓みによる接触圧が和らぎ、新聞本紙NP1の紙面が傷むのを防止することができる。そして、図17の(d)に示すように、新聞給送部6により新聞本紙NP1が排出され、新聞本紙NP1の後端がサバキ板522を通過し、スライド機構523の戻しバネ(付勢バネ)5235作用によってスライドブロック5233は降下し、元の状態になり、次の新聞本紙NP2が待機状態となる、
Next, a detailed description will be given of the operation of the surface portion 52 that performs the surface action. The slide mechanism 423 that slides the surface plate 522 and the adjustment of the space between the surface plate and the surface roller are described with reference to FIGS. 17 and 18. explain.
First, a description will be given of the Sabaki action with respect to a normal thickness newspaper NP with reference to FIG. FIG. 17 is an explanatory view showing a state where a newspaper book NP1 (normal average thickness) thicker than the space between the plate 522 and the plate roller 521 pushes the plate 522 upward when passing through the plate 522.
17A, as already described, the lower end of the newspaper newspaper NP1 presses the front end portion 5221 of the lower plate 522 while flexing the lower plate 522 and increasing the contact pressure with the lower roller 521. It shows how it goes. In such a state, the leading edge of the newspaper book NP1 advances downstream so as to be paid out to the roller roller 521, and at the end of bending of the roller plate, as shown in FIG. Advance. At this time, in the thick newspaper NP containing the leaflet, as shown in FIG. 17 (c), the bending of the front end portion 5221 of the grill plate 522 becomes large, and the slide block 5233 is also moved upward as shown in the figure. Because of the pushing up, the contact pressure due to the bending of the plate 522 is softened, and the paper surface of the newspaper NP1 can be prevented from being damaged. Then, as shown in FIG. 17 (d), the newspaper book NP1 is discharged by the newspaper feeding unit 6, the rear end of the newspaper book NP1 passes through the plate 522, and a return spring (biasing spring) of the slide mechanism 523 is obtained. ) The slide block 5233 is lowered by the action of 5235 and returns to the original state, and the next newspaper NP2 enters the standby state.
次に、通常の平均の厚さ新聞本紙よりも、分厚い新聞本紙NPを本発明の新聞本紙送給装置1で自動給紙する場合、図18に沿って、サバキ板522とサバキローラ521との間隔調整の作用・効果について説明する。
図18は、サバキ部52の間隔調整機構524によって、対象なる分厚い新聞本紙NPの厚さの半分程度に、調整ノブ5245を回して設定し、間隔C(図10)を広げて、自動給紙した時の様子を示すものである。
まず、図18(a)は、サバキ板522を押してサバキ板522とサバキローラ521との間に、新聞本紙NPの先端が侵入する様子を示したもので、図18(b)は新聞本紙NPがサバキ板とサバキローラとの間を通過するときの様子を示したもので、間隔Cを予め間隔調整機構524で所望の距離に設定しておくことで、通常の厚さの新聞本紙NPと同様に、スムースにサバキ作用が行われる。
Next, in the case where the newspaper book NP that is thicker than the normal average thickness newspaper is automatically fed by the newspaper book feeder 1 according to the present invention, the distance between the plate 522 and the plate roller 521 as shown in FIG. The operation and effect of adjustment will be described.
In FIG. 18, the interval adjusting mechanism 524 of the buckle unit 52 is set by turning the adjustment knob 5245 to about half the thickness of the target thick newspaper NP, and the interval C (FIG. 10) is widened to automatically feed. It shows the situation when
First, FIG. 18A shows a state in which the leading edge of the newspaper book NP enters between the dust board 522 and the dust roller 521 by pushing the grill board 522. FIG. 18B shows the newspaper book NP. This shows the situation when the paper is passed between the paper board and the paper roller. By setting the distance C to a desired distance by the distance adjusting mechanism 524 in advance, it is similar to a normal newspaper NP. Sabaki is performed smoothly.
ここで、新聞本紙が移送工程でジャムを起こした場合の対応について、図13を用いて説明する。
図13に示す各センサ間(S1〜S4)において、摩擦搬送機構4、あるいは、新聞給送部6を駆動したとき、所定時間経過しても予定のセンサに(次のセンサ)に到達していなかった場合、操作パネル23ではエラーを表示し、駆動中の摩擦搬送機構4及び新聞給送部6を停止する。
これを、具体的な場合について、以下に述べると、
(1)センサS1で通過検出され、所定時間経過してもセンサS2で新聞本紙NPの検出がなされない時は、センサS1,2間でエラーが発生したことになり、このとき、摩擦搬送機構4は停止しエラー表示が行われる。
このようなジャムの発生原因は、例えば、新聞の先端のカールが大きかったり、積載状態が芳しくなかったり、その他の理由が考えられるが、そのようなさまざまな場合において、作業者によるジャムの解消が簡単に行われるようでなくてはならない。通常、ジャムの解消は、詰まった新聞本紙NPを手前に引いて元に戻してから再び新聞の積載を正しく行い、その後、操作パネル23でエラー表示のリセットを行ない、再スタートをかければ解除される。
前述したように、本実施例における前壁32、補助送り機構51、サバキ板522は下流側(手前側)に回動できる構成であり、ジャムした新聞本紙NPを手前に引いたとき、これら前壁32、補助送り機構51、サバキ板522は回動して新聞本紙NPとのストレスを緩和するので新聞本紙を傷めることなくジャム解除することができる。
Here, the correspondence when a newspaper book is jammed in the transfer process will be described with reference to FIG.
When the friction conveying mechanism 4 or the newspaper feeding unit 6 is driven between the sensors (S1 to S4) shown in FIG. 13, the predetermined sensor (the next sensor) has been reached even after a predetermined time has elapsed. If not, an error is displayed on the operation panel 23, and the driving friction conveying mechanism 4 and the newspaper feeding unit 6 are stopped.
In a specific case, this is described below.
(1) If the passage is detected by the sensor S1 and the newspaper SNP is not detected by the sensor S2 even after a predetermined time has elapsed, an error has occurred between the sensors S1 and S2. 4 stops and an error is displayed.
The cause of the occurrence of such a jam is, for example, the curl at the tip of the newspaper is large, the loading state is not good, or other reasons are conceivable. In such various cases, the jamming by the operator is eliminated. It should be easy to do. Normally, the jam is cleared by pulling the jammed newspaper NP forward and returning it to the original position, then correctly loading the newspaper again, and then resetting the error display on the operation panel 23 and restarting it. The
As described above, the front wall 32, the auxiliary feed mechanism 51, and the front plate 522 in the present embodiment are configured to be able to rotate downstream (front side). The wall 32, the auxiliary feed mechanism 51, and the paper board 522 are rotated to relieve the stress with the newspaper NP, so that the jam can be released without damaging the newspaper.
図19は、前壁32、補助送り機構51、サバキ板522が回動しジャム解除する一例を示す図である。
(2)センサS2で通過検出がなされ、所定時間経過してもセンサS3で新聞本紙NPの検出がなされない時は、センサS2,S3間でエラーが発生したことなり、このとき、摩擦搬送機構4は停止しエラー表示が行われる。
この場合も詰まった新聞本紙NPを元に戻してから、再び新聞本紙NPを新聞積載部3に積載し直して、その後、エラー表示のリセットを行ない、再スタートをかければ解除されるが、このとき、新聞本紙NPの先端がサバキ板522を通過しているとき、新聞本紙NPを手前に引くとサバキ板522は、回転軸5222(図10参照)を中心に手前に回動するため、また、そのときスライド機構523によりサバキ板522が上昇しながら回動するため、新聞本紙NPが抜き易く、また、新聞本紙NPを傷めないようになっている。新聞本紙NPが手前に引き抜かれると、サバキ板522は元の位置に戻るように成っている。
FIG. 19 is a diagram illustrating an example in which the front wall 32, the auxiliary feeding mechanism 51, and the buckle plate 522 are rotated to release the jam.
(2) When the passage detection is performed by the sensor S2 and the newspaper book NP is not detected by the sensor S3 even after a predetermined time has elapsed, an error has occurred between the sensors S2 and S3. 4 stops and an error is displayed.
In this case as well, the jammed newspaper NP is returned to its original state, and then the newspaper NP is loaded again on the newspaper stacking unit 3, and then the error display is reset. At this time, when the front end of the newspaper book NP passes through the paper board 522, if the newspaper paper NP is pulled forward, the paper board 522 rotates forward about the rotation shaft 5222 (see FIG. 10). At that time, the paper plate 522 is rotated while being lifted by the slide mechanism 523, so that the newspaper book NP can be easily removed and the newspaper book NP is not damaged. When the newspaper book NP is pulled forward, the grill plate 522 returns to its original position.
(3)センサS3で通過検出ななされ、所定時間経過してもセンサS4で新聞本紙NPの検出がなされない時は、センサS3,4間でエラーが発生したこととなり、このとき、摩擦搬送機構4は停止しエラー表示が行われる。このような場合は、前述の(2)のように処理する場合と、中央機構部2のスライド枠体21のスライド機構を利用して、中央機構部2のユニットを手前に引き出し、新聞本紙NPを、出口から引き出す方法で詰まった新聞を取り出すことができる。
なお、スライド機構より着脱自在の中央機構部2は、新聞包装機9の包装用のロールフィルムFa,Fbの交換や装着に利用されるとともに、このような、ジャム処理にも極めて有用である。また、中央機構部2のユニットをスライド機構を利用しながらのジャム処理解除は、新聞本紙NPを新聞積載部3に積載したまま処理ができるという利点も有する。
(3) If the passage detection is performed by the sensor S3 and the newspaper SNP is not detected by the sensor S4 even after a predetermined time has elapsed, an error has occurred between the sensors S3 and S4. 4 stops and an error is displayed. In such a case, the case of processing as described in (2) above, and using the slide mechanism of the slide frame body 21 of the central mechanism unit 2, the unit of the central mechanism unit 2 is pulled out to the front and the newspaper NP. You can take out the jammed newspaper by pulling it out from the exit.
The central mechanism 2 detachable from the slide mechanism is used for replacing and mounting the roll films Fa and Fb for packaging of the newspaper packaging machine 9 and is extremely useful for such a jam processing. Further, the cancellation of the jam processing while using the unit of the central mechanism unit 2 using the slide mechanism has an advantage that the newspaper main sheet NP can be processed while being loaded on the newspaper stacking unit 3.
次に、図20に沿って、手差し新聞本紙NPの包装の場合について簡単に説明する。
図20に示すように、本実施例の装置では前壁32、補助送り機構51、サバキ板522を上方に退避させておくと手差し包装になる。
この場合、操作パネル23で手差し包装モードに切り替えておくと、新聞包装機9がレディ信号を発しているとき、新聞本紙NPを一部ずつ新聞積載部3上に置くとエンプティが解除され、新聞給送部6、および、摩擦搬送機構4が作動して新聞本紙NPが新聞給送部6に進み、更に、新聞本紙NPは新聞給送部6で挟持されて新聞包装機9内に送出され、このようにして新聞本紙NPを手差し包装が可能で、従来、作業者が押し込んでいた作業が、単に載せるだけで良く、盆・暮などチラシが多い新聞本紙NPの極めて包装が楽になる。また、新聞包装機9側がレディ信号を発していなくとも、新聞積載部3に新聞本紙NPをおけば自動的に新聞給送部6に送られ、新聞包装機9側がレディ信号発信と同時に給送動作を行うので、作業者は、新聞包装機9の挿入タイミングを示すレディ信号を気にすることなく作業ができ、この点でも楽になる。
Next, along with FIG. 20, the case of packaging of manual newspaper NP will be briefly described.
As shown in FIG. 20, in the apparatus of the present embodiment, manual packaging is performed when the front wall 32, the auxiliary feed mechanism 51, and the plate 522 are retracted upward.
In this case, if the manual wrapping mode is switched on the operation panel 23, when the newspaper wrapping machine 9 is generating a ready signal, if the newspaper NP is partially placed on the newspaper stacking unit 3, the empty is released, and the newspaper The feeding unit 6 and the friction conveying mechanism 4 are operated to advance the newspaper book NP to the newspaper feeding unit 6, and the newspaper book NP is sandwiched by the newspaper feeding unit 6 and sent into the newspaper packaging machine 9. Thus, it is possible to manually wrap the newsprint NP, and the work that has been pushed in by the operator in the past can be simply put on, and the newsprint NP with many leaflets such as a tray and a living can be extremely easily wrapped. Even if the newspaper wrapping machine 9 side does not send a ready signal, if a newspaper NP is placed in the newspaper stacking unit 3, it is automatically sent to the newspaper feeding unit 6, and the newspaper wrapping machine 9 side feeds simultaneously with the ready signal transmission. Since the operation is performed, the operator can work without worrying about the ready signal indicating the insertion timing of the newspaper packaging machine 9, and this is also easy.
次に、本発明の新聞本紙送給装置1での他の応用例をいくつか示す。
図21は、丁合いされたチラシ束の自動給紙に応用する例を示す。
積載したチラシ束の自動給紙は、チラシ束自体を新聞包装機9に自動給紙してビニール包装するニーズに対応できる。また、新聞本誌を開いてチラシを中入れする、いわゆる、チラシ折り込み作業の、チラシ束自動給紙装置に応用できる。
チラシ束(シート束)は通常、丁合い機によって作製されるが、図21に示すように、シート束は前方の折り紙Eによって纏められるが、折り紙Eの折り線が新聞本紙の折りたたみ部に相当するので本発明が応用できる。チラシ束の自動給紙の場合、折り紙Eは通常、チラシ幅より小さく、中央近辺にあるので、また、中央部のカールの心配がないので図示するように、サバキ部は中央に配置してもよい。
Next, some other application examples of the newspaper book feeding apparatus 1 of the present invention will be shown.
FIG. 21 shows an example applied to automatic feeding of collated leaflet bundles.
The automatic feeding of the stacked leaflet bundles can meet the needs for automatically feeding the leaflet bundles themselves to the newspaper packaging machine 9 and packaging them in vinyl. Further, the present invention can be applied to a leaflet bundle automatic paper feeding device for so-called leaflet folding work in which a newspaper magazine is opened and leaflets are inserted.
A leaflet bundle (sheet bundle) is usually produced by a collating machine. As shown in FIG. 21, the sheet bundle is gathered by the front origami E, but the folding line of the origami E corresponds to the folding portion of the newspaper. Therefore, the present invention can be applied. In the case of automatic feeding of leaflet bundles, the origami E is usually smaller than the leaflet width and is in the vicinity of the center, and there is no concern about curling in the center. Good.
次に示すのは、より多くの新聞本紙NPを積載できる新聞本紙補給装置をカスケード接続する例である。本実施例に示す装置は少量の新聞本紙NPを積載した自動給紙装置であるが、容量の大きい積載では最下層から一部ずつ取り出す装置は駆動機構が大型化するとともに新聞包装機9の処理速度(60から80部/分)に対応する速度で一部ずつ自動給紙を行うようにするのは容易でない。
そこで、容量の大きい補給装置からまとめて本実施例の装置に追い積み補給することは有効な手段である。
例えば、図22に示すように、容量の大きい補給装置8をカスケード接続して、本実施例の新聞本紙送給装置1内の新聞本紙NPが無くなる前に、まとめて補給するようにすると、本実施例の新聞本紙送給装置1は新聞包装機9の処理能力に見合った速度で自動給紙し、カスケード接続した補給装置は、まとめて補給するために、本実施例の新聞本紙送給装置1より遅い速度で補給が可能である。
図22に示す補給装置8は、本実施例の前側に設置される例であるが、新聞包装機9の上方から、搬送装置を介して補給することも可能で、この場合、設置面積の増大を防ぎ、新聞販売店の作業スペースを犠牲にすることなく新聞包装機9の有効利用が促進される。
The following is an example of cascading newspaper book supply devices capable of stacking more newspaper book NPs. The apparatus shown in the present embodiment is an automatic paper feeder that loads a small amount of newspaper NP. However, in the case of loading with a large capacity, the apparatus for taking out parts from the bottom layer partly increases the drive mechanism and processes the newspaper packaging machine 9. It is not easy to perform automatic paper feeding part by part at a speed corresponding to the speed (60 to 80 copies / minute).
Therefore, it is an effective means to collect and replenish the replenishment apparatus having a large capacity to the apparatus of this embodiment.
For example, as shown in FIG. 22, if a large-capacity replenishing device 8 is connected in cascade and replenished together before the newspaper book NP in the newspaper book feeding apparatus 1 of this embodiment runs out, The newspaper book feeding apparatus 1 of the embodiment automatically feeds paper at a speed corresponding to the processing capability of the newspaper packaging machine 9, and the replenishing devices connected in cascade connect the newspaper book paper feeding apparatus of this embodiment to replenish collectively. Replenishment is possible at a speed slower than 1.
Although the replenishing device 8 shown in FIG. 22 is an example installed on the front side of the present embodiment, it can be replenished from above the newspaper packaging machine 9 via the transport device, and in this case, the installation area increases. And effective use of the newspaper packaging machine 9 is promoted without sacrificing the work space of the newspaper store.
以上説明したように、本発明を実施例の自動給紙する新聞本紙送給装置1は、積載した新聞本紙NPを、新聞積載部3で下から順に新聞包装機に挿入するので、作業が途切れることなく、作業途中であっても、新聞本紙NPの追い積みが可能で、作業者によらず包装速度が一定で速く作業の効率化、省力化が図れる。
また、市販されている既存の新聞包装機の前面上部に、簡単に後付けで取り付けられるので、既存の新聞包装機9を効果的に利用できるとい利点も有する。
なお、本発明の特徴を損なうものでなければ、前述した実施例に限定されないことは勿論である。
As described above, the newspaper book feeding apparatus 1 that automatically feeds the present invention according to the present invention inserts the loaded newspaper books NP into the newspaper packaging machine in order from the bottom by the newspaper stacking unit 3, so that the operation is interrupted. Therefore, even during the work, the newspaper book NP can be stacked, and the packaging speed is constant and fast regardless of the operator, so that work efficiency and labor saving can be achieved.
Further, since it can be easily retrofitted to the front upper part of an existing newspaper packaging machine that is commercially available, there is an advantage that the existing newspaper packaging machine 9 can be used effectively.
Needless to say, the present invention is not limited to the above-described embodiments as long as the features of the present invention are not impaired.
