Abstract (en)

Arrangement comprises printer (2) through which foil (1) is continuously fed, even when no print process occurs. Foil is divided into sections of defined length after printing. Transport mechanism moves foil by defined length (L) per printing. Printer is activated, when foil length is defined multiple of defined length. Arrangement has transport element (9,10) which outputs print process activation signal when the foil (1) has traversed the defined length (L). Rotary transducers (4,5) at the input and output of a foil buffer (6,11) detect the length of each foil movement. The difference between the detected lengths is used to correct the print process activation.

Abstract (de)

Eine Vorrichtung zum Bedrucken einer markierungsfreien Endlosfolie 1 mit Druckbildern weist eine Druckeinrichtung 2 auf, mittels welcher die Endlosfolie 1 bedruckt wird, und durch welche die Endlosfolie 1 kontinuierlich gegebenenfalls auch ohne Druckvorgang transportiert wird. Die Endlosfolie 1 wird nach dem Bedrucken einem Transportelement 9, 10 zugeführt, mittels welchem sie dadurch in Abschnitte einer zweiten vorbestimmten Länge L aufgeteilt wird, so daß das Transportelement 9, 10 die Endlosfolie 1 jeweils um die vorbestimmte Länge L weiter transportiert. Die Druckbilder müssen jeweils im Bezug auf die Grenzen T zwischen zwei aufeinanderfolgenden Abschnitten positionsgenau auf die Endlosfolie aufgebracht sein. Die Druckeinrichtung 2 wird zum Durchführen eines nur ein einziges Druckbild umfassenden Druckvorgangs jedesmal dann aktiviert, wenn die Länge der Endlosfolie 1 zwischen der durch die jeweils letzte vorgenommene Aufteilung erzeugte Abschnittsgrenze T' und der Druckeinrichtung 2 ein vorbestimmtes Vielfaches der zweiten vorbestimmten Länge L beträgt. Eine Anordnung 6, 11 ist zum Puffern der Endlosfolie 1 vorgesehen. Das Transportelement 9, 10 gibt nach jedem Weitertransport der Endlosfolie um die zweite vorbestimmte Länge L ein Signal zur Aktivierung des Druckvorgangs ab. Ein erster Drehgeber 4 ist am Eingang der Pufferanordnung 6, 11 angeordnet. Ein zweiter Drehgeber 5 ist am Ausgang der Pufferanordnung 6, 11 angeordnet. Mittels der Drehgeber 4, 5 wird jeweils die Länge des Wegs des Weitertransports der Endlosfolie 1 erfaßt. Zwischen den erfaßten Weglängen wird die Differenz gebildet. Die Differenz wird zur Korrektur der Aktivierung des Druckvorgangs verwendet. <IMAGE>
