Description

  Embodiments described herein relate generally to a paper sheet processing apparatus.
  There is known a mail reading sorting machine (sorting machine) that reads a postal code and an address by OCR, recognizes characters, and sorts and collects mails based on the recognition result. In addition, even for large and heavy paper sheets such as Flats mail, there is a device that picks up one by one by enlarging the device itself, and sorts and accumulates them (for example, see Patent Document 1). . In addition, the method of calculating | requiring the weight of a normal mail piece by calculating a difference is known (for example, refer patent document 1).
Japanese Unexamined Patent Publication No. 7-35570 (page 3, FIG. 2, FIG. 8)
  Until now, large postal items (paper sheets) that have a weight like Flats are first stored in a sorting box in which the operator supplies paper sheets one at a time. However, there is a problem that the weight is increased and a burden is imposed on the body of the attendant.
  Even if paper sheets can be stored in the classification box, when the stacking control is performed based on the recognition result by OCR that reads the surface information of the paper sheets, the thickness of the paper sheets is unknown, so it is immediately collected. As a result of having accumulated paper sheets more than necessary until the department became full, there was also a problem that it was too heavy and placed a heavy burden on the body for the staff to remove from the accumulation section.
  Also, because the paper sheets are large and heavy, if there are a large number of paper sheets against the pre-defined category designation, the stacking unit will fill up quickly, the machine will stop, and the processing efficiency will decrease. There was also a problem to do.
  The present invention calculates the weight of a paper sheet such as a heavy mail piece for each mail, and uses the predetermined weight as an attribute of the paper sheet together with other classification information (zip code, address, etc.). An object of the present invention is to provide a paper sheet processing apparatus that does not perform excessive accumulation.
  In order to achieve the above object, a paper sheet processing apparatus according to claim 1 of the present invention is a paper sheet processing for sorting and accumulating the paper sheets based on the sorting information of the paper sheets stored in the sorting box. An apparatus, a sorting box transporting means for transporting a sorting box containing paper sheets, a weight measuring means for measuring the weight of the sorting box transported by the sorting box transporting means, and a paper sheet from the sorting box Take out the paper one by one and feed it to the paper sheet transport unit that transports the paper, and each time you take out the paper one by one with this paper takeout means, it will not be taken out Weight calculation means for measuring the weight of the classification box in which the remaining paper sheets are stored by the weight measurement means, and calculating the weight of the paper sheets taken out from the difference in the measured weight of the classification box; and the paper Recognizing means for reading and recognizing leaf classification information, the weight calculating means and the weight calculating means A conveyance control means for specifying the classification of the paper sheet based on the recognition result of the recognition means, and calculating the total weight in the accumulation number of the paper sheets accumulated in the classification designation destination determined by the conveyance control means, According to the present invention, there is provided a sorting control unit that sets a stacking destination based on the sorting designation according to the total weight, and a stacking unit that stacks the paper sheets designated by the sorting control unit.

Detailed view of weight detector according to embodiment 2 of the present invention
  Paper sheets such as flats mail are put in the sorting box and transported to the weight detector. The weight of the classification box conveyed by the weight detection unit is measured. One paper sheet is taken out from the heavy paper sheets (hereinafter referred to as paper sheets) accumulated in the sorting box with a pick-up device, and the weight is measured again. It is transported on the transport path. At this time, the weight of the paper sheet is measured from the difference in weight before and after taking out the paper sheet. The measured weight is picked up by the paper sheet take-out mechanism and picked up and stored as an attribute of the paper sheet to be used in the next processing. Embodiments of the present invention will be described below with reference to the drawings.
  FIG. 1 is a block diagram illustrating a configuration of a paper sheet processing apparatus 1 according to the first embodiment of the present invention. FIG. 2 is a diagram mainly showing the configuration of the paper sheet weight detection unit 40 and the paper sheet transport unit 80 in the paper sheet processing apparatus 1 shown in FIG. FIG. 3 is an example of the classification box transport unit 20. FIG. 4 is a diagram illustrating a configuration of the weight detection unit 40 of the paper sheet processing apparatus 1 illustrated in FIG. 1. Hereinafter, the sheet processing apparatus 1 will be described with reference to these drawings.
  The paper sheet processing apparatus 1 according to the first embodiment is an apparatus that sorts a large paper sheet P having a weight like a flats.
  Since periodicals such as magazines are heavy and large, they are classified into paper sheets of the same size (see Fig. 1 (1) and Fig. 2 (1)), and then they are assigned to a classification box 10 suitable for storage. (See FIGS. 1 (2) and 2 (2)).
  The sorting box 10 storing the paper sheets P is placed on the sorting box transport unit 20 and transported (see FIGS. 1 (3) and 2 (3)), and the next sorting box transport unit (buffer unit). 30 (see FIGS. 1 (4) and 2 (4)). A plurality of sorting boxes 10 to be transported can be temporarily placed on the sorting box transport unit 30.
  A weight detection unit 40 is disposed downstream of the classification box transport unit 30. When the classification box 10 in which the paper sheets P are stored is conveyed and reaches a predetermined position on the conveyance belt 45 of the weight detection unit 40, the weight detection control unit 50 stops the conveyance belt 45 and the entire classification box 10 is moved. The weight is measured (see FIGS. 1 (5) and 2 (5)).
  The paper sheet take-out device 60 takes out one paper sheet P stored in the sorting box 10 from the top and supplies it to the paper sheet transport unit 80 (FIG. 1 (8), FIG. 2 (8)). )reference). At this time, the weight of the classification box 10 after one take-out can be measured. The details of the weight detection method for detecting the weight of the paper sheet P and the weight detection process will be described later.
  In this way, the sheets P are sequentially taken out until the classification box 10 is empty. The empty classification box 10 is sent onto the empty box transport unit 70 (see FIGS. 1 (7) and 2 (7)).
  A plurality of paper sheet transport units 80 may be arranged according to the amount, type, and transport destination of the paper sheets to be processed. In the example shown in FIG. 2, one paper sheet transport unit 80 is arranged. (FIG. 1 (8), FIG. 2 (8)).
  When the classification box 10 disappears on the weight detection unit 40, one classification box 10 storing the paper sheets P is sent from the classification box transport unit 30 to the weight detection unit 40. The paper sheets P in the classification box 10 newly supplied in this manner are sequentially taken out from the uppermost paper sheets in the classification box 10 by the paper sheet take-out device 60, and the paper sheet transport unit 80. What is supplied above is as described above.
  In this way, the paper sheets P are supplied to the OCR section 90 one by one by the paper sheet transport section 80 (FIG. 1 (9)).
  The OCR unit 90 reads and recognizes classification information such as address information and barcode information displayed on the conveyed paper sheet (FIG. 1 (90)). The recognition result is output to the conveyance control unit 100 (see FIG. 1 (9)). Further, the weight information of the paper sheet measured by the weight detection unit 40 is also output to the transport control unit 100.
  The conveyance control unit 100 matches the classification information input from the OCR unit 90 and the weight information input from the weight detection unit 40, puts the matching information on the shift information of the paper sheet, and outputs it to the classification control unit 110. .
  The sorting control unit 110 operates the sorting mechanism based on the matching information including the sorting information and the weight information input from the transport control unit 100, and collects the paper sheets from the stacking unit 1 (120) to the stacking unit 3 (140) or Accumulated in the reject ticket accumulation unit 150. The sorting mechanism (not shown) described above is configured with a tiltable tray such as a tilt tray, for example.
  In addition, when the paper sheets accumulated in the stacking unit 1 (120) to the stacking unit 3 (140) are processed manually, they can be attached to and detached from the stacking unit 1 (120) to the stacking unit 3 (140). An accumulation box (not shown) can be arranged, and the amount of paper sheets accumulated in the accumulation box can be used according to the following criteria.
  The amount of paper sheets collected in the stacking unit (stacking box) is limited by the stacking height and the total weight of the stacked paper sheets. The sorting control unit 110 calculates the total weight of the stacked paper sheets for each stacking unit (stacking box) (total weight calculating unit). When the above-described stacking box is taken out from the stacking unit and an empty stacking box is reset, the calculation of the total weight is also newly calculated. For example, when the total weight of the paper sheets is set to 5 kg or the accumulated height is set to 30 cm, the accumulated height is set to 30 cm when the total weight of the paper sheets accumulated in the accumulation box reaches 5 kg. Even if it is less, the stacking box is displayed as full without further stacking, notifying the staff and stacking in another stacking box set in advance. By performing such a process, the total weight of the paper sheets accumulated in the accumulation box is specified, and an excessive burden is not imposed on the staff.
  In addition, when the stacking height reaches 30 cm, even if the total weight of the paper sheets does not reach 5 kg, the stacking box will not be stacked any more and a full display will be displayed. Notify By carrying out such a process, the height of the paper sheets accumulated in the collection box is limited, so that the weight is less than 5 kg, but the height of the bulky paper sheets is specified. This makes it harder to hold due to overpacking.
  The example shown in FIG. 1 shows a case where there are three stacking units indicated by stacking unit 1 (120) to stacking unit 3 (140), but it is obvious that the present invention is not limited to this. In addition, the above-described limitations on the amount of paper sheets accumulated in the stacking box have been described. It is clear that is set.
  FIG. 3 is an example of the classification box transport unit 20. A plurality of types of classification boxes 10 are provided according to the size of the paper sheet. For example, when there are paper sheets PA, PB, and PC having three types of sizes, it is preferable that the classification boxes 10A, 10B, and 10C corresponding to the sizes are provided. The clerk can store the paper sheets PA, PB, PC corresponding to the size of the classification boxes 10A, 10B, 10C in the classification box. Since the classification box 10 is configured according to the size of the paper sheet, the shape of the bottom of the classification box (for example, 10A) that stores the large paper sheet (for example, PA) has a large structure and is small. The bottom of a sorting box (for example, 10C) that stores paper sheets (for example, PC) has a small structure. The following description will be made using the classification box 10 as a generic name except when the size of the classification box is specified.
  The staff places the sorting box 10 storing the paper sheets P in this way on the transport belt 21. In the present embodiment, a belt-like line parallel to the conveyance direction end of the conveyance belt 21 in the conveyance direction of the conveyance belt 21 so that the classification box can be placed at the correct position of the conveyance belt 21. Is marked. When the clerk places the classification box 10 on the conveyor belt 21, the clerk can secure the weight detection accuracy in the weight detection unit 40 described later by placing the end face of the classification box 10 in accordance with the belt-like line. . Further, it is possible to prevent a take-out error when taking out the paper stored in the sorting box 10 by the paper take-out device 60.
  In the illustrated example, three types of belt-like lines 21a, 21a, 21b, 21b, and 21c are marked on the left and right with respect to the conveyance direction conveyance center in accordance with the three types of classification boxes 10A, 10B, and 10C.
  In the embodiment, the three types of markings can be distinguished by color or pattern. Further, by making the color or pattern of the exterior of the classification box 10 the same as the color or pattern of the strip line, it can be expected to further prevent an error in the placement position of the classification box 10.
  FIG. 4 is a detailed view of the weight detector 40 (weight detector). FIG. 4A is a perspective view of the weight detection unit 40. FIG. 4B is a cross-sectional view taken along the line AA in FIG.
  The weight detection unit (weight detection device) 40 includes a weight detection sensor 41, a classification box transport unit (classification box transport unit) 42, a weight detection mechanism unit (moving unit) 55, and a weight detection control unit 50. The
  The weight detection sensor 41 is a U-shaped strain sensor, and is fixed to the weight detection sensor support base 46.
  The classification box conveyance section (classification box conveyance means) 42 includes conveyance rollers 43 and 44, a conveyance belt 45 wound around the conveyance rollers 43 and 44, and a drive motor 48 that drives the conveyance rollers 44. Is done.
  A pulley 48 a that is pivotally supported by the drive shaft of the drive motor 48 and rotates in synchronization with the rotation shaft of the drive motor 48 and the pulley 44 a of the transport roller 44 are connected by a timing belt 49.
  The weight detection mechanism unit 55 moves the weight detection mechanism support bases 56A and 56B to which the classification box transport unit 42 and the weight detection sensor support base 46 are fixed so as to freely move in the stacking direction of the paper sheets in the classification box 10. Can do. In this embodiment, it moves up and down.
  The weight detection mechanism support bases 56A and 56B are fixed to the slider 56C. The slider 56C is incorporated in the slider support base 56D so as to be vertically movable. With this configuration, the weight detection mechanism support bases 56A and 56B can move up and down, and as a result, the classification box transport unit 42 and the weight detection sensor fixed to the weight detection mechanism support bases 56A and 56B. The support base 46 also moves up and down.
  The paper sheet take-out device 60 sequentially takes out the uppermost paper sheets in the sorting box 10 placed on the transport belt 45. As a result, the height of the paper sheet take-out surface in the classification box 10 becomes low, and the paper take-out device 60 may make it difficult to take out the paper sheets. In such a case, the weight detection mechanism 55 described above moves up the weight detection mechanism support bases 56A and 56B, so that the position of the take-out surface of the uppermost sheet P in the classification box 10 is made constant. be able to.
  The weight detection control unit (weight detection control means) 50 drives the drive motor 48 until the tip of the classification box 10 is conveyed in the direction of the arrow B in the drawing and reaches a predetermined position on the conveyance belt 45, thereby conveying the conveyance belt 45. Move. Whether or not the predetermined position has been reached is determined by detecting the transport position of the classification box 10 by the position sensor S2 disposed at the entrance upstream of the weight detector 40 and then rotating the drive motor 48 by a predetermined step. Can be achieved. In this way, the classification box 10 reaches a predetermined position.
  When the classification box 10 reaches a predetermined position, the weight detection control unit 50 measures the weight of the classification box 10.
  After one sheet of the uppermost sheet P stored in the sorting box 10 is taken out by the sheet take-out device 60, the weight is measured again. Although details will be described later, the difference between the initial weight Wn and the weight W (n−1) measured after one paper sheet P is taken out is the weight of the paper sheet Pn taken out as shown in the following equation (1). It becomes PWn.
PWn = Wn−W (n−1) (1)
The weight of all the paper sheets can be measured by repeating the above operation every time the paper sheets are taken out.
  FIG. 5 is a weight detection sensor output signal output from the weight detection sensor 41. FIG. 5 (1) is a weight detection sensor output signal when Wn is measured, and FIG. 5 (2) is a weight detection sensor output signal when W (n-1) is measured. Since the weight detection sensor 41 is composed of a strain sensor as described above, since the damping shown in the figure occurs at the moment when a load is applied to the sensor, the weight detection sensor output signal is output in the illustrated stable section. Need to read. Although not shown in the present embodiment, since the weight detection sensor output signal is an analog signal, the analog signal is subjected to A / D conversion (Analog to Digital conversion) to detect the weight. The technique is a known technique and will not be described in detail here.
  When all the paper sheets P in the classification box 10 are taken out and become empty, the position of the conveyance surface of the classification box 10 on the conveyance belt 45 is returned to the home position.
  Next, the weight detection control unit 50 drives the drive motor 48 to rotate the conveyor belt 45 and conveys the empty classification box 10 placed on the conveyor belt 45 in the direction of the arrow B shown in the figure. The classification box 10 containing the paper sheets is received from the classification box conveyance unit 30.
  FIG. 6 shows a characteristic structure of the classification box 10. FIG. 6A is a perspective view of the classification box 10, and FIG. 6B is a plan view of the classification box 10. The classification box 10 has a structure in which the opening 10a is larger than the bottom 10b. By being configured in a so-called mortar shape, when the paper sheets P are stacked in the sorting box 10 by the clerk, the paper sheets P are aligned and stacked.
  FIG. 7 is a diagram (part 1) for explaining the operation of the paper sheet take-out device 60. The paper sheet take-out device 60 is a device that takes out the paper sheets P stored in the sorting box 10 placed on the transport belt 45 of the weight detection unit 40 one by one and supplies them to the paper sheet transport unit 80. is there.
  The paper sheet take-out device 60 includes two pickup units 60A and 60B, a support column 61 that rotatably supports the pickup units 60A and 60B, and a support base 62 that supports the support column.
  The pickup unit 60 </ b> A includes an arm 63 and a hand unit 64. The hand unit 64 includes suction units 64A, 64B, and 64C.
  The pickup unit 60B includes an arm 65 and a hand unit 66. The hand part 66 includes suction parts 66A, 66B, and 66C.
  In such a configuration, FIG. 7 shows a hand part 64 of the arm 63 (generic name of the hand parts 64A, 64B and 64C) on the paper sheet P stored in the classification box 10 placed on the weight detection part 40. Is in a position.
  FIG. 8 is a diagram for explaining the operation of the paper sheet take-out device 60 (Part 2). From the state of FIG. 7, the arm 63 is lowered to a position in contact with the paper sheet P and sucked by the suction unit. The paper sheet P is adsorbed.
  FIG. 9 is a diagram (part 3) for explaining the operation of the paper sheet take-out device 60, and shows a state where the adsorbed paper sheet P is lifted to a predetermined position. FIG. 10 is a diagram for explaining the operation of the paper sheet take-out device 60 (part 4). The lifted paper sheet P is rotated onto the transport belt 81 of the paper sheet transport unit 80, and the transport belt 81 is rotated. It is in a state of being mounted on. In the embodiment, the number of the conveyance belts 81 constituting the sheet conveyance unit 80 is one, but a plurality of the sheet conveyance units 80 are arranged, and the sheet is conveyed by a plurality of conveyance paths to be processed. Of course, the weight detection control unit 50 controls which conveyance belt the paper sheet P is placed on.
  FIG. 11 is a flowchart showing the weight detection process. Hereinafter, description will be given with reference to these drawings. In addition, the process shown below is processed by the weight detection control part 50. FIG.
  The classification box 10 is transported to a predetermined position of the transport belt 45 of the weight detector 40 and stopped (S01).
  Next, the weight detection control unit 50 measures the weight Wn of the classification box 10 in which n sheets are stored (S02).
  As a result, the weight Wn of the classification box 10 in which n sheets are stored and the tare weight Wo measured in advance are compared. If they match (Y in S03), the weight is already stored in the classification box 10. Since the paper sheet P is not stored, the process proceeds to step S09 and is transported to collect the sorting box 10.
  If they do not match (N in S03), the n-th paper sheet is taken out by the paper sheet take-out device 60 and supplied to the paper sheet transport unit 80 (S04).
  Next, the weight W (n-1) of the entire classification box is measured (S05). Since the nth paper sheet is taken out at this time, the weight W (n-1) of the classification box 10 in which (n-1) paper sheets are stored is measured.
  By calculating the difference between Wn and W (n−1), the weight PWn of the nth sheet is calculated by the following equation (2) (S06).
PWn = Wn−W (n−1) (2)
PWn: Weight of nth paper sheet Wn: Weight of classification box containing n paper sheets W (n-1): Classification box containing (n-1) paper sheets Total Weight (n-1) In order to measure the weight PW (n-1) of the first sheet, n is set to (n-1) (S07). If the value of n is not 0 (S08 ≠ 0), the process returns to step S02 and repeats until n = 0, whereby the weights of all the sheets are calculated.
  If the number n of paper sheets stored in the classification box 10 is known, the processing from step S07 → S08 is possible, but if the number of paper sheets is not known, the classification box is empty. Until that time, it is possible to calculate the weight of all the paper sheets by performing the processing after step S06 after step S02.
  As a result of the processing described above, the classification box 10 that has been emptied is sent from the transport belt 45 of the weight detection unit 40 to the empty box transport unit 70 (S09).
FIG. 12 is a diagram illustrating the weight detection process shown in FIG. In FIG. 12A, n paper sheets P are stored in the classification box 10, and Wn is expressed by the following “Equation 1” when the weight at that time is Wn.
FIG. 12 (2) shows a state in which the nth paper sheet has been taken out by the paper sheet take-out device 60 from the state of FIG. 12 (1). Assuming that the weight at that time is W (n−1), W (n−1) is expressed by the following “Equation 2”. From the difference between Wn and W (n−1) obtained as a result, the weight PWn of the nth sheet is calculated by the following “Equation 3”.
  By repeating the above processing, the weights are sequentially calculated from the (n-1) th weight PW (n-1) to the second weight PW2.
FIG. 12 (3) shows a case where one sheet is stored in the sorting box 10 by repeating the above-described weight detection process. The weight W1 at this time is represented by the following “Equation 4”. Further, the weight PW2 of the paper sheets at that time is expressed by the following “Equation 5”.
FIG. 12 (4) shows a case where the paper sheets stored in the classification box 10 are exhausted. The weight at this time becomes the tare Wo, and the first weight PW1 is calculated by “Equation 6” by subtracting the tare Wo from W1 calculated by “Equation 4”.
  As described above, in the first embodiment, the weight of a paper sheet such as a heavy mail is measured for each mail, and as an attribute of the paper sheet, it is classified into other classification information (zip code, address, etc.). Since it can be used, the weight of the paper sheets accumulated in the stacking unit can be limited, and a paper sheet processing apparatus capable of efficiently processing can be provided without placing an excessive burden on the staff. .
  FIG. 13 is a detailed view of the weight detector 40A according to the second embodiment of the present invention. Since the parts other than the weight detection unit 40A are basically the same as those in the first embodiment, the same parts are denoted by the same reference numerals, the description thereof is omitted, and different parts are described.
  The illustrated weight detection unit 40A does not have the weight detection mechanism support bases 56A and 56B provided in the first embodiment, and the weight detection sensor support base 46 is fixed to the slider 56C. The slider 56C is incorporated in the slider support base 56D so as to be vertically movable. With this configuration, the weight detection sensor 41 can be moved up and down. In the second embodiment, the weight detection sensor 41 stands by at a position where the position where it is not in contact with the conveyor belt 45 is the home position, and when the classification box 10 is conveyed in the direction of the arrow B in the figure and reaches a predetermined position. The weight detection sensor 41 rises and measures the weight of the classification box 10.
  The paper sheets P in the classification box 10 are taken out one by one from the uppermost paper sheet P in order, and the weight is measured as in the first embodiment. In this way, when all the paper sheets P are taken out and the weight measurement is completed, the weight detection sensor 41 returns to the home position described above.
  By performing such a process, wear due to the measurement surface of the weight detection sensor 41 always in contact with the conveyor belt 45 and an unnecessary weight detection sensor output signal (noise component) are output from the weight detection sensor 41. Can be prevented.
  In the second embodiment, the position of the conveyor belt 45 does not move upward depending on the height of the paper sheet P stored in the classification box 10, so that the arms 60 </ b> A and 60 </ b> B constituting the paper sheet take-out device 60 are provided. It is necessary to perform control to move the uppermost sheet in the classification box 10 to a position where it can be sucked out.
  In the first embodiment, since the transport unit 42 moves up and down, the function of the paper sheet take-out device 60 can be simplified. However, the transport unit 42 moves up and down together with the sorting box 10 in which the paper sheets are stored. Therefore, although a large driving force for driving the slider 56C is required, in the second embodiment, since the transport unit 42 is not moved up and down, a large driving force is not required, but the arm control of the paper sheet takeout device 60 is performed. I need. Which is suitable is selectively applied according to the type and amount of paper to be processed.
  As described above, in the second embodiment, since the transport unit 42 is not moved up and down, an effect that a large driving force for driving the transport unit 42 up and down is not required is obtained.
