Or when the conventional type of slitter scorer apparatus is employed, consisting of several sets of slitter scorers placed in radial shape between opposed frames which can rotate around a horizontal shaft, and a rotary shear positioned in front of them, the corrugated boards are cut by the rotary shear at a right angle to the running direction thereof after having reduced the running speed of the corrugated speed. The cut ends of the corrugated boards which are delivered sequentially after the cutting operation thereof are approached towards the slitter scorer. During their approaches, the desired slitter scorer, which was adjusted in advance, from among several sets of the slitter scorers positioned in the radial shape is rotated to a given position for corresponding operation.

An object of the present invention is to provide a slitter scorer apparatus which can immediately change the slitting and fluting operation along the running direction of the long and flat materials thereby performing the slitting and fluting operation without suspending the running operation of the long and flat materials which are delivered successively, or without reducing the running speed thereof.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS The preferred embodiment, wherein the apparatus of the present invention is placed between the double facer of the corrugated machine for manufacturing the corrugated boards, and the cut off machine thereof, is described hereinafter.

Referring now to FIG. 1, the slittcr scorer apparatus comprises the rotary shear 1, the front guide 501, two slitter scorers 2 and 2, and the rear guide 601, and in the two slitter scorers 2 and 2 are combined various mechanisms as described later.

The rotary shear 1 is provided with an upper roll 14 and a lower roll as shown in FIGS. 2 and 3. Cutting edges 141 which are sequentially provided with angular edges are projected along the roll axial direction on the circumferential surface of the upper roll 14. The narrow band-like cutting edge receiving portion 151 which is advantageously made of urethane rubber which is capable of sufficiently receiving the depression of the cutting edges 141 is secured onto the circumferential surface of the lower roll 15. The upper roll 14 and the lower roll 15 are vertically placed in parallel between parallel struts 11 and 11 erected at both ends of the base 12. Each strut 11 is provided with a quadrilateral opening portion 111 at its upper portion. The opening portions 111 and 111 of the struts 11 and 11 are mutually opposed. A pair of arms 13 and 13 which are almost in parallel are placed on both outer sides of the struts 11 and 11, and one end 131 of each arm rod 13 is rotatably fixed to the strut 11, and the middle portion 132 thereof and the other end 133 thereof may be elevated as they are confronted with the opening portion 111 of the strut 11. A horizontal member 134 is secured to the other ends 133 and 133 of the arm rods 13 and 13. The shafts 142 of the upper roll 14 are projected outwardly of the struts l1 and 11 from the opening portions 111 and 111 of the strut and are rotatably mounted on the middle portions 132 and 132 of the arms. The shafts 152 of the lower roll 15 are rotatably fixed to the struts 11 and 11. Gears 161, 162, 163 and 164 are provided on the exterior side of the strut 11 on the one side, and the gear 161 is rotatably fixed to the arm 13 with its axis line and the rotation axis line of the arm rod 13 arranged in alignement. The gear 162 is rotatably fixed to the strut 11 and the gear 163 is secured to the shaft 142 of the upper roll 14. The gear 164 is secured to the shaft 152 of the lower roll 15. The gears 161 and 162 of the same pitch circle are in mutually engagement. The gears 163 and 164 are respectively of the same pitch circle. The gear 163 is engaged with the gear 161, while the gear 164 is engaged with the gear 162. By the rotation of the gear 162, the cutting edges 141 of the upper roll 14 and the cutting edges receiving portion 151 of the lower roll 15 meet on a vertical face which contains the axis of the upper roll and the axis of the lower roll. A sprocket 171 is coaxially secured to the gear 162. A sprocket 172 is placed below the sprocket 171 and is rotatably fixed to the strut 11. An endless chain 173 is entrained around the sprockets 171 and 172 and is expanded by a tension sprocket 174 mounted on the strut 11. The shaft 1721 of the sprocket 172 is connected with the output side of a change gear 191 secured to the top face of the base 12. A motor 192 is connected with the input side of the change gear 191. A wheel 193 and a sprocket 194 are secured to the shaft 1721 between the change gear 191 and the strut 11 on one side. Another sprocket 195 is rotatably provided in front of the sprocket 194, and the endless chain 196 is entrained around the sprockets 194 and 195. The shaft 1951 of the sprocket 195 is projected to the exterior side of the strut 11 and fixedly carries a handle 197. A reinforcing frame 112 is secured to the top end portion of the struts 11 and 11,

and the struts 181 and 181 are erected on the frame 112. Rods 182 and 183 are vertically placed between each strut 181. The top end of the rod 182 on the upper side is rotatably fixed to the respective top end portion of the struts 181 and 181, while the lower end thereof is rotatably connected with the top end of the rod 183 on the lower side by a pin bar 184. Furthermore, the lower end of the rod 183 on the lower side is rotatably connected with the top face of the horizontal member 134 between the arm rods 13 and 13. The length of the rods 182 and 183 is determined to make the rods 182 and 183 become straight when the arm rods 13 and 13 have descended until the cutting edges 141 of the rotating upper roll 14 is sufficiently depressed on the cutting edge receiving portion 151 of the rotating lower roll 15. The tip end of the piston rod 1851 on the air cylinder is rotatably engaged with the pin bar 184 which couples the rod 182 with the rod 183, while the cylinder head 1852 of the air cylinder 185 is rotatably connected with the frame 112. The stroking operation of the piston rod 1857 on the air cylinder 185 is determined to allow the rods 182 and 183 to become a straight line when the piston rod 1851 has been projected, and is determined when the piston rod 1851 has been retracted, so that the arm rods 13 and 13 may be raised enough to let the materials pass between the upper roll 14 and the lower roll 15. A proximity switch APSl is secured to an arm 13 on one side, while an iron piece F1 which actuates the switch APSl is secured to the shaft 142 of the upper roll 14. The iron piece F 1 is located so that it may approach the proximity APSl and may put the switch to an operating condition when the cutting edges 141 try to leave the cutting edge receiving portion 151 after having depressed upon the cutting edge receiving portion 151 while the upper roll 14 is rotated in the direction of an arrow X as shown in FIG. 2 and the lower roll 15 is rotated in the direction of an arrow Y as shown in FIG. 2.

When the input is 1," an internal contact is put in a closed condition. When the input is 0, the internal contact is put in an open condition. Namely, when the input is l solinoids SOL91, SOL92, SOL93, SOL951, SOL952, SOL961, SOL962, and relays R1 1, R17, R18 are put into a conductive condition by an AC power source, to which current is fed from terminals X0 and Y0. Subsequently, an order changing operation which, is performed by the slitter scorer apparatus as shown in FIG. 1, is described hereinafter. In this apparatus, the corrugated board 7, which has fed successively from the double facer 8, passes between the upper and lower rolls 14 and 15 of the rotary shear 1. Thereafter, the corrugated board passes through any one of the upper slitter scorer 2, the lower slitter scorer 2 or on the plate 46 and reaches the cut off machine 9 of the next process through the rear guide 601. The corrugated board 7 which has past the rotary shear 1 is changed in course properly by the front guide 501 and passes the slitter scorer 2 or between the upper and lower slitter scorers 2 and 2 which have been maintained in advance in any predeterminened oreder while they are not in use respectively.

In order to change the order for the corrugated board 7 which is passing the plate 46 or the lower slitter scorer 2, there is described hereinafter a case where the corrugated board 7 is caused to pass the upper slitter scorer 2 which is maintained in a predetermined order.

Referring to the rotary shear 1, the handle 197 is rotated thereby to cause the cutting edges 141 of the upper roll 14 and the cutting edges receiving portion 151 of the lower roll 15 to be located near the corrugated board 7 as shown in FIG. 20 so that the cutting edges 141 and the cutting edges receiving portion 151 may be confronted with each other with the corrugated board 7 inserted therebetween when the upper and lower rolls 14 and 15 have made almost one revolution (under one revolution) respectively in the direction of arrows X and Y. Thereafter, the solenoid SOL91 of the solenoid-operated valve 91 (see FIG. 13) is excited by pushing the switch P8161 (see FIG. 16) to cause the piston rods 1851 and 1851 of the air cylinders and 185 to be projected thereby to lower the upper roll 14. A switch SW11 for indicating the order change (see FIG. 16) is closed together with the operation in the rotary shear 1. Then, the motor 30 for the upper slitter scorer 2 is actuated by pushing the switch PB111 (see FIG. After such an order change preparing operation has been completed, order change starting switch PB162 (see FIG. 16) is pushed. Thus, the current is flowed to the relay R11. The motor 192 for the rotary shear 1 is actuated, and the upper and lower rolls l4 and 15 are rotated in the direction of the arrows X and Y as shown in FIG. 2 thereby to cut the corrugated board 7. After the start switch PB162 has been pressed, and the set delay time of an element T11 has been elapsed and when the iron piece 1 of the upper roll 14 has been approached towards the proximity switch APSl thereby to operate the switch, the electric passage to the solenoid SOL91 and the relay R11 is closed and the upper roll 14 is ascended, whereby the motor 192 is suspended. Also, the pushing action of the switch PB162 excites the solenoid SOL93 of the solenoidoperated valve 93 (see FIG. 13) to cause the piston rod 5421 of the air cylinder 542 to be projected in the feeding guide 54 of the front guide 501 thereby to ascend the guiding plate 541 to a place U2. Accordingly, the corrugated board 7 which has past on the plate 46 or the lower slitter scorer 2 is advanced as it is continuously. however, the tip end of the corrugated board 7 which appears successively from a place cut by the rotary shear 1 is transferred from the guiding plate 541 to the guiding plate 523 of the upper guide 52 and is guided to the upper slitter scorer 2 which has descended to the stoppers 44. As the solenoid SOL93 is demagnetized after the elapse of the sufficient time required for the corrugated board 7 to be transferrd to the upper guide 52, namely, after the elapse of the set delay time of the element T14, the guiding plate 541 is descended to the original place D2. As the order change operation is completed, the switch SW11 is left open.

Subsequently, there is explained a case where the corrugated board 7 which is passing the upper or lower slitter scorers 2 is caused to pass on the plate 46. The same order change preparing operation as in the abovementioned operation is performed. However, the switch SW12 (see FIG. 16), instead of the switch SW11, is closed and the switch F8111 is not necessary to be pressed. The order change start switch PB162 (see FIG. 16) is pressed. Thus, the rotary shear 1 cuts the corrugated board 7. Also, when the switch PB162 is pressed, the solenoids SOL92 and SOL93 of the solenoid-operated valves 92 and 93 (see FIG. 13) are excited. Accordingly, the piston rod 5241 of the air cylinder 524 is retracted while the piston rod 5421 of the air cylinder 542 is projected. The guiding plate 523 of the upper guide 52 for the front guide 501 is ascended to the place U1, while the guiding plate 541 of the feeding guide 54 is ascended to the place U2. Accordingly, the tip end of the corrugated board 7 which appears sucessively from a cut place of the corrugated board is transferred from the guiding plate 541 to the intermediate guide 51 and is guided onto the plate 46. After the corrugated board 7 has been transferred to the intermediate guide 51, namely, after the elapse of the set delay time of the elements T15 and T16, the solenoids SOL92 and SOL93 are demagnetized, whereby the guiding plates 523'and 541 are descended to the original placesDl and D2. Thus, as the order change operation is completed, the witch SW12 is left open.

Then, there is explained a case wherein the corrugated board 7 which is passing the upper slitter scorer 2 or on the plate 46 is caused to pass the lower slitter scorer 2. The order change preparing operation is also performed in this case. However, the switch SW13, instad of the switch SW11, is closed. The motor 30 of the lower slitter scorer 2 is actuated by pushing the switch PB121 (see FIG. 15), instead of the switch PBlll. Then, the order change switch PB162 (see FIG. 16) is pushed. The corrugated board 7 is cut by the rotary shear 1. In this case, the solenoids SOL92 and SOL93 are not excited. Accordingly, the guiding plate 523 is located in a place D1, while the guiding plate 541 is located in a place D2, while the guiding plate 541 is located in a place D2. The tip end of the corrugated board 7 which comes successively from the cut place of the corrugated board is transferred from the guiding plate 541 onto the lower guide 53 and is guided to the lower slitter scorer which has ascended to the stoppers 44. Thus, as the order change operation is completed, the switch SW13 is left closed.

The corrugated board 7 which has been slit and fluted by passing the upper or lower slitter scorer 2 is guided to the entrances 91 and(or) 91 of the cut off machine 9 by the rear guide 601. As the corrugated board 7 which has past on the plate 46 is neither slit nor fluted, it is guided to any one of the entrance 91 or 902 of the cut off machine 9. The motor 30 of upper (lower) slitter scorer 2 which is not in use is suspended by pushing the switch P8112 (P8122). The upper slitter scorer 2 which is not in use is ascended, and the edges are changed in position, removed, added etc. for the following order change operation by an operator who rode on the frames 55 and 65 of the front guide 501 and the rear guide 601. Thereafter, the upper slitter score 2 is descended in advance to the stoppers 44, After having engaged the pawls 35 and 35 with the pin rods 361 and 361 located at the lower end of the screw rods 36 and 36 which have descended, in advance, to the upper slitter scorer 2, the switch PB131 (see FIG. 15) is pressed to normally rotate the motor 43 and to ascend the screw rods 36 and 36, whereby the ascent of the upper slitter scorer 2 is performed. When the upper slitter scorer 2 has reached its maximum ascending limit, the iron piece F14 of the slitter scorer 2 approaches the proximity switch APS14 of the strut 32 to operate it. Accordingly, the motor 43 is suspended and the slitter scorer 2 stops. Also, the descent of the upper slitter scorer scirer 2 is performed by pressing the switch P8142 (see FIG. 15) and reversely rotating the motor 43. When the upper slitter scorer 2 has reached its maximum descending limit, namely, the stoppers 44, the iron piece F15 of the slitter scorer 2 actuates the proximity switch APS15 of the strut 32 thereby to suspend the motor 43. The lower scorer 2 which is not in use is descended and maintained by the operator, and thereafter, is again ascended to the stopper 44. The switch P8182 (see FIG. 16) is pressed to excite the solenoid SOL953 of the solenoid-operated valve 95 (see FIG. 14) and to retract the piston rods 451 and 451 of the oil cylinders 45 and 45, whereby the lower slitter scorer 2 is descended. When the lower slitter scorer 2 has reached its maximum descending limit,

the iron piece F16 of the slitter scorer 2 approaches the proximity switch APS16 of the strut 32. Thus, the'sole-
