Abstract (en)

The method involves transporting an item laterally from a stack and passing it to a following device. The items are transported faster in a functional area before a transition region than in the transition region until the item has reached the transition region, whereby the transition speed to the next device is matched to the transport speed. An Independent claim is also included for an arrangement for implementing the method

Abstract (de)

Verfahren und Anordnung zur Durchlaufsteuerung von Druckträgern A, insbesondere von Briefen, in einer Vereinzelungsvorrichtung B eines Briefpostverarbeitungssystems, bei der die Druckträger A ausgangsseitig mittels eines Auswurfmittels 9 an eine Nachfolgeeinrichtung 16, wie eine Waage oder Frankiermaschine übergeben werden. Es wird eine Vergrößerung des Einsatzbereiches angestrebt. Aufgabengemäß soll der Briefdurchsatz an den in der Nachfolgeeinrichtung 16 angepaßt werden. Erfindungsgemäß wird die Übergabegeschwindigkeit in Abhängigkeit von der Transportgeschwindigkeit der Nachfolgeeinrichtung eingestellt und in den übrigen Bereichen der Vereinzelungsvorrichtung B wird die Transportgeschwindigkeit in Abhängigkeit von der jeweiligen Brieflage optimiert. <IMAGE>
