Abstract (de)

Eine Vorrichtung und ein Verfahren zur Vermeidung des Umknickens von Ecken (C) der offenen Kante (O) einer gefalzten Signatur (S) ohne elektrostatische Aufladung umfasst einen zwischen einer Bandvorrichtung (T), einem Umlenkzylinder (1) und/oder einer Bremstrommel (6) angeordneten Führungsmechanismus (20), der vorzugsweise an der offenen Kante (O) der zu übergebenden Signaturen (S) angeordnet ist. Der Führungsmechanismus ist vorzugsweise breit genug, dass Schwankungen in der Breite (W) der gefalzten Signaturen (S) gehandhabt werden können. Der Führungsmechanismus (20) umfasst eine Vielzahl von entlang seiner Breite angeordneten schmalen Schlitzen (21). Die in der Nähe des Führungsmechanismus (20) angeordneten Greiferelemente (2, 3) umfassen eine Vielzahl von entlang ihrer Breite angeordneten schmalen Fingern (22, 28), die in einer Weise ausgebildet sind, dass sie in den schmalen Schlitzen des Führungsmechanismus (20) laufen. Durch den Führungsmechanismus (20) wird die Bewegung der offenen Kante (O) der gefalzten Signaturen (S) von der Übergabevorrichtung (1) weg über jeden Zwischenraum zwischen Übergabevorrichtungen gesteuert, so dass ein Umknicken der offen Kante (O) der gefalzten Signaturen (S) bei der Übergabe zwischen Übergabevorrichtungen verhindert wird. <IMAGE>
