The waist panel material is preferably a stretchable member from the viewpoint of wearability, and the waist panel material is generally formed using a stretchable film. However, since a stretchable film is expensive, it is preferable to form a waist panel material using a so-called thread rubber that is a general-purpose elastic member. However, when the process of obtaining the waist panel material using the rubber thread and the process of adding the waist panel material to the absorbent main body to obtain the deployable disposable diaper are continuously performed in a series of flows, the rubber thread is used. The stretch direction of the waist panel material formed by using is generally the same direction as the transport direction of the absorbent main body, and is a direction orthogonal to the stretch direction of the waist panel material required when the unfolded disposable diaper is worn. Therefore, when manufacturing a deployable disposable diaper by adding a waist panel material formed using thread rubber to the absorbent main body in an in-line process, the waist panel material formed using thread rubber is inverted 90 degrees and absorbed. It is necessary to add to the sex body. Thus, since the apparatus which reverses a waist panel material 90 degree | times is needed separately, an increase in capital investment will be caused.

Patent Document 1 also describes a method of rearranging the zigzag thread-like elastic bodies in parallel.

  However, in the cutter used in the cutting process described in Patent Document 1 and Patent Document 2, it is difficult to cut the unnecessary portions of the both ends of the thread-like elastic body with a short length, and the produced stretchable sheet is poor in appearance. turn into. Further, Patent Document 1 and Patent Document 2 disclose nothing about the method of cutting the unnecessary portions at both ends of the thread-like elastic body by aligning them in a short length except that a roller cutter is simply arranged.

  The anvil roller 184 on the lower side in the z direction is a roller that is longer in the x direction than the score cutter roller 183, as shown in FIG. The anvil roller 184 includes a cutter receiver 187 at a position corresponding to each cutter blade 185 of the score cutter roller 183. The cutter receiver 187 has a circular shape when viewed from the side. As shown in FIG. 6, the diameter of the circular cutter receiving portion 187 is larger than the diameter at the center in the x direction of the anvil roller 184 in the manufacturing apparatus 11 </ b> A, but need not be large. Good.

  In the manufacturing apparatus 11A, the score cutter roller 183 and the anvil roller 184 have a servo motor (not shown) attached to the drive unit, and the rotation speed is controlled by a control unit (not shown) provided in the manufacturing apparatus 11A. Yes. The rotation speed of the cutter blade 185 of the score cutter roller 18 is basically the same as the rotation speed of the cutter receiver 187 of the anvil roller 184, but may be higher than the rotation speed of the cutter receiver 187. The rotational speed of the cutter blade 185 is the peripheral speed at the cutter blade 185 in the score cutter roller 18, and the rotational speed of the cutter receiver 187 is the peripheral speed at the cutter receiver 187 in the anvil roller 184. From the viewpoint of the cutability of the thread-like elastic body 7, it is preferable that the rotational speed of the cutter blade 185 is faster than the rotational speed of the cutter receiver 187, and the peripheral speed ratio of the rotational speed of the cutter blade 185 to the rotational speed of the cutter receiver 187 is 1-10, Preferably it is 1-2, More preferably, it is 1-1.5. However, since the damage to the cutter blade 185 and the cutter receiver 187 is greater than when the rotation speed of the cutter blade 185 and the cutter receiver 187 is the same, the cutter blade 185 with respect to the rotation speed of the cutter receiver 187 is increased. The peripheral speed ratio of the rotational speed is appropriately determined according to the material (quality and thickness) of the filamentous elastic body 7 and the elongation rate. In addition, when the cutter receiving portion 187 of the anvil roller 184 is particularly soft, the cutter receiving portion 187 is worn out to form a groove, and the cutting performance is deteriorated. It is desirable to make a difference in the hardness of the cutter blade 185 of the portion 187 and the score cutter roller 183, and the cutter receiving portion 187 of the anvil roller 184 is preferably harder.

The cutting means 18 of the manufacturing apparatus 11A includes an integrated score cutter roller 183 in which a cutter roller and a pair of circular cutter blades 185 and 185 are integrally formed, as shown in FIG. However, instead of the integrated score cutter roller 183, a so-called holder-type cutter that holds a pair of circular cutter blades rotatably may be provided.
It is not always necessary to attach a servo motor (not shown) to the drive section of the score cutter roller 183. For example, in the case of a holder type cutter, the motor is not attached, and the cutter receiving section 187 is pressurized by applying pressure to the anvil roller 184. You may make it go along with rotation of.

  As shown in FIGS. 4 and 6, in the manufacturing apparatus 11 </ b> A, the holding belt 191 of the thread-like elastic body 7 is located on the upper side in the z direction of the cutter receiving portions 187 and 187 on both sides of the anvil roller 184 in the x direction. , 191 are arranged. Since the pressing belts 191 and 191 are formed symmetrically, one pressing belt 191 will be described in the following description.

  As shown in FIG. 4, the presser belt 191 is bridged between pulleys 191 a, 191 b, and 191 c whose rotation axis direction is arranged in the x direction. The pulley 191a is located on the downstream side of the anvil roller 184, the pulley 191c is located on the upstream side of the anvil roller 184, and the pulley 191b is located on the upstream side of the pulley 191c. The lower end in the z direction of the pulley 191a and the lower end in the z direction of the pulley 191c are located below the upper end in the z direction of the anvil roller 184. Therefore, as shown in FIG. 4, the holding belt 191 spanned between the pulleys 191a, 191b, 191c is in contact with a part of the outer periphery of the cutter receiving portion 187 of the anvil roller 184, and the anvil roller It is designed to be rotated along with the rotation of 184.

  As shown in FIG. 2, the manufacturing apparatus 11 </ b> A has a thread-like shape located on both outer sides in the x direction of the pair of belt-like sheets 50 and 60 cut by the pair of score cutter rollers 183 and the anvil roller 184 that are cutting means 18. Suction portions 195 and 195 for sucking unnecessary portions of the elastic body 7 are provided. The suction portions 195 and 195 are arranged on both outer sides of the anvil roller 184 in the x direction. Note that the positions where the suction portions 195 and 195 are disposed may be disposed on the downstream side of the pressing belt 191 and the cutter receiving portion 187 that are separated from each other after the contact.

  Next, a method for manufacturing a stretchable sheet using the manufacturing apparatus 11A described above will be described.

  First, as shown in FIG. 3, the thread-like elastic body 7 is continuously fed out, and the fed-out thread-like elastic body 7 is introduced into the rotating arm 14 for winding the elastic body (supplying step). More specifically, the thread-like elastic body 7 is continuously fed out from the bobbin 70 around which the thread-like elastic body 7 is wound using the feeding roller 152. At the time of unwinding, the rotation speed of the unwinding roller 152 is controlled by a control unit (not shown) provided in the manufacturing apparatus 11 based on the detection output of the tension of the filamentous elastic body 7 by the tension measuring device 153, and at a predetermined tension. The thread-like elastic body 7 is fed out from the bobbin 70.

  Next, the thread-like elastic body 7 is introduced into the rotating arm 14. At the time of introduction, the winding speed at which the thread-like elastic body 7 stretched to a predetermined stretching stress by the tensor 151 and the feeding roller 152 is wound around the pair of conveying belts 12 and 13 by the rotating arm 14. The feed roller 156 supplies the rotating arm 14 at the above speed. Here, the “winding speed” means one round of rotation around the outer peripheral side of the transport belt 12 (upper transport belt 12a, lower transport belt 12b) and the outer periphery of the transport belt 13 (upper transport belt 13a, lower transport belt 13b). It means a value obtained by dividing the length of the thread-like elastic body 7 by the time required for one round.

  Next, as shown in FIG. 2 and FIG. 4, the thread-like elastic body 7 is continuously wound around the pair of transport belts 12 and 13 using the rotating arm 14, and the thread-like elastic body 7 is attached by the pair of transport belts 12 and 13. Transport (transport process). More specifically, the thread-like elastic body 7 supplied into the rotating arm 14 in the extended state is introduced into the arm portion 141 from the introduction port 145, passes through the shaft portion 142, the connecting portion 144, and the rotating portion 143. Derived from the outlet 146. The thread-like elastic body 7 led out from the lead-out port 146 is led out while the rotary arm 14 is rotated, so that the outer peripheral side at the upstream end of the transport belt 12 (upper transport belt 12a, lower transport belt 12b) and It is wound around the outer peripheral side at the upstream end of the transport belt 13 (upper transport belt 13a, lower transport belt 13b). Here, the conveyor belt 12 (upper conveyor belt 12a, lower conveyor belt 12b) and the conveyor belt 12 (upper conveyor belt 12a, lower conveyor belt 12b) are rotated by the rotational travel of the conveyor belt 12 (upper conveyor belt 12a, lower conveyor belt 12b). ) And the outer periphery of the conveyor belt 13 (upper conveyor belt 13a, lower conveyor belt 13b), the thread-like elastic body 7 is continuously wound in a spiral shape. The continuously wound thread-like elastic body 7 is conveyed between the pair of downstream belt-like sheets 50 and 60.

  Here, the thread-like elastic body 7 wound around the pair of conveying belts 12 and 13 extends in a direction intersecting with the y direction, and is not arranged in a direction orthogonal to the y direction. In order to correct the wound elastic body 7 in a direction (x direction) orthogonal to the y direction, for example, when the elastic thread 7 is wound as shown in FIG. 12, the rotational speed of the upper transport belt 12 a is made slower than the rotational speed of the lower transport belt 12 b, and the rotational speed of the lower transport belt 13 b is made slower than the rotational speed of the upper transport belt 13 a in the transport belt 13. Thus, the inclination of the thread-like elastic body 7 is gradually changed during the conveyance in the y-direction, and the inclination of the thread-like elastic body 7 is orthogonal to the y-direction before being conveyed between the pair of belt-like sheets 50 and 60 ( x direction).
