Abstract (en)

An apparatus for separating cut portions from a sheet material such as paper or cardboard, and method thereof. The separation process is performed by using an air suction force to separate (from a sheet) a cut blanking portion and a rim portion having predetermined shapes. In one aspect, an apparatus comprises a pair of dispensers which receive a sheet therebetween between a pair of dispensers, approaches the pair of dispensers each other, absorbs a blanking portion with a first dispenser and a rim portion with a second dispenser, detaches the first and second dispensers each other, moves the first or second dispenser at a predetermined position, and releases the blanking portion and rim portion from the first and second dispensers, respectively. Thereby, the blanking portion and the rim portion can be readily separated and piled uniformly. The present invention advantageously has a simple structure and no need to make a new pair of molds for a new shape of blanking portion, which has been necessary for a conventional separating system.
