sum 1 or 7 Fig. 16 Fig; 17 I DEVICE FOR MOVING A WEB IN A ROTARY PRINTING PRESS FOR THE PRINTING OF VARYING FORMATS The present invention relates to a device which is intended to move a web in a rotary printing press for the printing of varying formats and to which the web is fed stepwise, for instance, by an intermittently operating printing or punching machine.

Combined printing and punching machines are known in which punching and rotary printing are carried out intermittently. The advance of the paper web in the intermittent part operates with a sinusoidally varying speed which increases from and drops back to 0. However it is necessary to maintain the speed of the rotary printing cylinder constant at least during the rolling of the printing plate on the paper web. This necessary change in the speeds of the paper web is obtained in the known apparatus in the manner that the web of paper is fed by the intermittent feed into a loose loop from which it is pulled into the printing machine by a feeddevice of the latter. The loose loop, however, has the disadvantage that the paper web which is stretchable is not under a uniform tension within the two parts of the machine. As a result differences in register occur between the punching and the printing, which differences can be compensated for only by expensive scanning and control devices, such as optical means.

The known devices furthermore have the disadvantage that upon a change in the printing format, the printing and impression cylinders must be replaced if the printing mechanism is to be operated with the same speed.

Accordingly, it is the primary object of the invention to provide a device which permits the intermittent punching and rotary printing of varying formats without the necessity of replacing the printing and impression cylinders, and by which device a printing mechanism of constant circumferential speed may be used.

This problem is solved in an apparatus which consists of an intermittently operating machine part, a rotary printing mechanism driven at all times with constant speed and provided with unchanged printing and impression cylinders and a variably controllable compensating or dancing roll, as well as a feed printing mechanism feed which is arranged behind the rotary printing mechanism and permits a pulling back of the web. By the cooperation of compensating roll and feed, the result is obtained, on the one hand, that the web of paper is continuously under a uniform tension. On the other hand, the control of the compensating roll permits the web of paper to be pulled through the printing machine with constant speed during the rolling of the printing plate, in a manner that the movement of the compensating or dancing roll compensates for the sinusoidal speed of the intermittent feed so as to establish a constant speed of the paper web.

By the device of the subject invention, it is furthermore possible to work any desired punching and printing lengths, provided that they are not greater than the maximum circumferential part of the printing cylinder. If the length of the printing segment is, for instance, a third of the circumference of the printing cylinder, while the punching and printing surface and thus the length of advance is only half the length of the printing segment, the compensating roll pulls the difference between length of advance and length of the printing segment back out of the printing machine.

The compensating roll is preferably controlled via a cam which is connected with the main drive for the punching and printing machine.

The compensating roll is preferably arranged for free translation in ball bearings on a shaft which, via its shaft slidehead, is moved up and down by cams by control rods in guides. On the ends of the shaft there are preferably arranged fixed gears which engage with fixed racks so as to assure a dependable parallel guiding of the compensating roll. The rack guide makes it possible to move the shaft slidehead up and down only by one control rod in a guide. The control rod is provided at its lower end with a freely supported disk which travels on the cam and by tension springs which are connected with the upward and downward moving shaft slidehead and the fixed lower part of the machine.

The feed of the rotary printing mechanism is a friction feed that is preferably a vacuum feed which consists of a perforated drum to which there is applied a constant or variable vacuum which can be controlled for the movements of thecompensating roll. The control of the vacuum or the pulling of the web by the perforated drum is effected with constant vacuum preferably by a control segment arranged in the drum which alternately covers the perforated surface of the drum. The control can, however, also be achieved with timedependent vacuum control valves and a vacuum space of constant size in the drum. This solution is mechanically simpler and more dependable.

The rotary printing mechanism preferably consists of an impression cylinder and a printing cylinder which may be provided with printing plates of different length and for different printing processes so that upon a change in the format, only the printing plate need be changed, while in case of a change of the printing method, only the inking and applicator mechanism need be changed. In this way it is possible to use with the subject rotary printing mechanism all known printing processes such as aniline-printing, relief printing, indirect relief printing and wet offset printing, without having to change the printing and impression cylinders or their drive.

By way of further explanation of the invention, reference is made to the following detailed description and illustrative embodiments of the invention shown in the accompanying drawings in which:

FIG. 1 is a diagram of a combined printing and punching machine with common drive,

FIG. 2 is a perspective view of the compensating roll with guides and drive,

FIG. 3 is a further embodiment of the compensating roll with guide and drive,

FIG. 4 is a section through the vacuum feed,

FIG. 5 is a diagrammatic side view of the vacuum feed in accordance with another embodiment,

FIG. 6 is an axial section through the drum of FIG.

FIGS. 7-13 are different diagrams of the movement of the compensating roll, and

FIGS. 14-17 are diagrams of printing mechanisms for different printing processes which can be used on the rotary printing machine of the subject invention.

The combined printing and punching machine shown schematically in FIG. 1 consists of a rotary printing mechanism 1 having a printing cylinder 2, impression cylinder 3, and an inking and transfer mechanism 4. In front of the rotary printing mechanism 1, as seen in the direction of the web, there is arranged the compensating roll means 5, while behind the rotary printing mechanism 1, as seen in the direction of the web, the friction feed 6 is arranged.

In the combined printing and punching machine, a web of paper is first punched in a shallow punch press 7 and thereupon advanced by a grip feed 8 to the compensating roll 5. The printing and punching machine has a common drive 10.

Referring to FIG. 2, the compensating roll is arranged freely movable on ball bearings on a shaft 11 which is seated in a shaft slidehead 12. On the shaft slidehead 12 there are arranged control rods 13 which are guided in guides 17. At the lower end of the control rods 13 there are arranged freely supported disks 18 which travel on cams 9 and are held by means of a tension spring 19 permanently against the cams 9. The cams 9 are arranged on a rod which is connected via gears with the main drive of the printing and punching machine.

In accordance with the second embodiment of the compensating roll 5 shown in FIG. 3, fixedly mounted on the shaft 11 are two gears 14 which are in engagement with stationary racks 15. By the rack guidance it is possible for the shaft slidehead 12 to be held by the pull of ths springs 19 by means of the freely supported wheel 18 on only one cam 9 via a single control rod 16 which travels in the guide 17; the cam 9 being rigidly connected with the main drive 10 of the printing and punching machine.

The arrangement in accordance with the embodiment of FIG. 3 has the advantage over the first embodiment that a smaller mass which is movable back and forth and fewer slide guides are present. The parallel guiding of the shaft slidehead 12 is adjustable by the gears 14 and racks l5.

In FIG. 4 there is shown an embodiment of a vacuum feed which consists of a perforated drum 6 in which a stationary radial wall 20 and a movable radial wall 21 define a vacuum chamber 22. On the movable radial wall 21 there is arranged a circular segment 23. The movable radial wall 21 bearing the circular segment 23 is movable via the lever 24 which is guided on a cam 25.

In FIGS. 5 and 6 there is shown a further embodiment of a vacuum feed. In the perforated drum 6 there are arranged two stationary radial walls 26, 27 which define the vacuum chamber 22. The vacuum in the vacuum chamber 22 is controlled by a control valve 28 which is opened to a greater or lesser extent by a cam 29. The vacuum applied to the vacuum chamber 22 is variable by means of the control valve 28, while in the embodiment shown in FIG. 4 it is at all times the same.

As can be noted from FIG. 1, the web of paper 30 is first pulled from a supply roll 31 by a roller feed 32 into a loop 33. The gripper feed 8 pulls the web of paper 30 stepwise into the punching machine in which, when the feed movement is at a standstill, the web of paper is worked by the punching mechanism 7 which may also be a flat printing mechanism or numbering mechanism. The gripper feed 8 then pulls the web of paper 30 forward by an additional length. The web of paper 30 is held under tension by the continuously operating friction feed 6.

The purpose of the compensating roll 5 is to control the intermittent feed of the web of paper with respect to the rotary printing mechanism 1. This control, as can be noted from FIGS. 7-13, operates as follows:

In the showing of FIG. 7, the web of paper is at a standstill both in the punching machine and in the rotary printing machine since the gripper feed 8 has come to a stop. The compensating roll 5 is at its lower point of reversal, and the vacuum feed has lesser force, due to lesser vacuum or reduced suction surface, and does not convey the web of paper but only holds it under tension. The printing cylinder which is continuously rotated has its printing plate which protrudes beyond the periphery of the printing cylinder moved away from the web of paper and is directly in front of the ink transfer (not shown).

In FIG. 8 the gripper feed 8 has completed its feeding movement in the direction towards the rotary printing machine. The compensating roll 5 has reached its upper point of reversal and during its upward movement has carried along the length of paper conveyed by the gripper feed 8. The vacuum feed has not conveyed the web of paper but merely braked it, which is possible, depending on the development of the vacuum feed and force of attraction of the paper web by reducing the aspirating perforated surface or reducing the vacuum in the vacuum chamber. The inking of the printing cylinder has at the same time been completed.

As can be noted from FIG. 9, the paper web 30 is clamped fixed in position at the end of the gripper feed. The feed slide is in return travel. The compensating roll 5 by a downward movement releases thepaper web for the rolling of the printing plate on the paper web with simultaneous conveyance of the paper web. The paper web 30 is pulled forward by the vacuum feed 6 which operates with greater vacuum.

As can be noted from FIGS. 10-13, due to the movement of the compensating roll, the web of paper, during the rolling of the printing plate, reaches a speed which is synchronous with the printing cylinder, while the speed of conveyance of the web of paper by the gripper feed proceeds sinusoidally. The compensating roll therefore fulfills the task of converting the sinusoidal movement of the web of paper during the printing process into a constant motion. During the printing process the compensating roll moves downward, after it has passed through the region of synchronous speed. The process can now start from the beginning.

The device permits the printing of any desired printing length less than the length of the printing segment.

For the adjusting of the machine to different printing formats it is merely necessary to change the length of feed of the gripper feed 8, to provide the printing cylinder 2 with a corresponding printing plate and to pro vide the punching mechanism with a corresponding punch tool.

As can be noted from FIGS. 14-17, all customary rotary printing processes can be employed. In FIG. 14 the rotary printing mechanism 1 is adjusted for wet offset printing, in connection with which the impression cylinder 2 is provided with a rubber blanket 5 over which the printing plate cylinder P is arranged. The printing plate cylinder P can be easily installed into the rotary printing mechanism ll together with the inking and moistening mechanism in case of corresponding arrangement.

ln FIGJIS the rotary printing mechanism 1 is set up for indirect relief printing. The impression cylinder 2 also bears a rubber blanket on which the plate cylinder P is rolled, the plate cylinder being inked by the inking mechanism arranged on it.

In FIG. 16 there is shown a letter press of conventional type in which the printing cylinder 2 is provided with a printing plate or a numbering cylinder.

In FIG. 17 there is shown an arrangement for aniline printing in which the printing cylinder 2 bears a printing plate.

By the device in accordance with the invention there is provided an extremely large number of different atrangements of a rotary printing mechanism and its connection to a flat, punching or lithographic printing mechanism, without completely converting the machine in the previously customary manner. The device therefore has the advantage that without loss of time for setting up small lengths of web, it can be printed with different formats and different printing processes.

While the invention has been described in connection with several preferred embodiments, it will be understood that it is not intended to limit the invention to such embodiments. On the contrary, it is intended to cover all alternatives, modifications and equivalents as may be included within the spirit and scope of the invention as defined by the appended claims.
