5.2 Feeder Section

The feeding mechanism consists mainly of the assembly for the lowering and lifting of the feeding table. In addition, there are the feeding table, the feeding head, fixed face stops, first gate, side stackers, feeding roller, and the second gate.

The feeder serves the purpose of stacking paper sheets, and is operated by roller chains guided by two leading spindles. The sheets are taken from the table and inserted into the machine by means of the feeding head. During lamination the paper is removed from the pile.

The feeding head feeler controls the height of the pile and the lifting of the table. The feed table is lifted automatically as the paper is removed. One step of lift equals 2 to 3 mm, independently of the amount of paper. The table lift is either automatically controlled by the feeding head feeler, or manually by means of push buttons on the control panel.

Face stacking

The correct face position of the paper stack on the feeding table is provided by the face stackers ( a ), and the first gate ( b ). The sheets must be pushed tight against the surface of the face stackers. One should make sure that the paper doesn't bend, which can cause problems in the feeding process.

Side stacking

The collation of paper pile on the sides is done by side stackers ( c ), which are placed symmetrically. A slight play must be allowed between the ledges and the paper pile to prevent damage to the paper and improper feeding. The side stackers are controlled by the knob ( d ) on the operator's side. The arrow indicates ( e ) the direction of turning for the changing of sheet size. Smaller size in the “ - “ direction, larger size in the “ + “ direction.

Gravity rollers

e

The gravity rollers are always touching the paper pressing it against the feed rollers. The position is factory set, and remains unchanged for all sizes of paper. For higher paper weights the pressure has to be increased. For this purpose, a set of weights ( e ) is supplied as accessories. The weight is simply pulled out or inserted.

Accelerating rollers

WARNING

CAUTION: The position of the rollers are set at the factory and does not require changing, regardless of sheet size.

Accelerating rollers increase the pressure on the feeding roller at the moment the second gate drops out of the way. Allowing equal pressure to feed paper stock evenly to the chrome roller and pressure roller area. The moment of pressure is controlled by the control system and has been factory set. The spring ( g) determines the pressure.

Plate holders

The plate holders keeps the paper sheet on the lower guiding plate to prevent it from jumping over the second gate.

Positioning: The machine has three hold-down fingers in total. The position of the middle one does not change and is factory set. The position of the extreme two change with respect to the size of sheet, and is adjusted to be about 10 mm distant from the edge of paper, after the screw ( h ) has been loosened. Be sure to tighten the screw ( h ) after positioning the hold down fingers.

5.3.3 Laminating rollers

WARNING

WARNING: Keep fingers, hands and other body parts away from the rollers.

The upper chrome roller combined with the lower pressure roller make up the laminating rollers. The laminating rollers function is to press the adhesive and the film onto the surface of the sheets. Pressure is regulated by turning the right side regulator ( a ) and/or left side regulator ( b ).

a

b

Independent control of the left and right side pressure enables the operator to control the amount of pressure applied to the sheets. Equal pressure should be applied for good, clear lamination with no wrinkling on the paper. Off setting pressures on controls can help with minor wrinkling problems.
