The technical field to which the invention relates.

This invention relates generally to the production of securities, in particular banknote, and more specifically to a method for processing bundles of securities, in particular packs of banknotes, and to a device for implementing this method.

In the context of this invention, the term "securities" should be understood as comprising all types of securities and/or valuable documents, such as banknotes, cheques, tax stamps, lottery tickets, passports, identity cards or travel documents, etc. In a preferred case, the securities are notes.

Prior art and background of invention

Methods and devices for processing sheets of securities, mainly of the banknotes in the stack securities and foot packs securities (so-called the methods and devices "final processing") is already known in the technology of the securities.

Such methods and devices final processing are disclosed, for example, in U.S. patents№3939621, №4045944, №4283902, №4453707, №4463677, №4558557, №4558615 and no 4853399, European patent application no EP 0656309, International publication no WO 01/49464, European patent application no EP 1607355 and International publication no WO 2008/010125 - all these documents are registered in the name of the Applicant of this application. WESM is an effective solution, disclosed in International publication no WO 2004/016433 also on behalf of the present Applicant, incorporated herein in its entirety by reference and is particularly suitable for continuous production of securities with subsequent serial numbers. Other known solutions are disclosed in European patent application no EP 0598679, International publication no WO 2005/018945, International publication no WO 2006/131839 and British patent application No. GB 2262729.

As shown in the above-mentioned publications, it is common practice to manufacture securities in the form of sheets or successive sections of a continuous roll, each of which contains many prints securities that are arranged in a matrix of rows and columns; sheets or successive sections of a continuous roll eventually cut to obtain individual securities, usually after numbering each printed page.

The term "sheet" hereinafter should be understood as a link or on a separate sheet, which is used in sheet-fed printing machines, or on the part of the canvas continuous roll that is used in web printing machines; part of the canvas continuous roll, ultimately, is cut into sheets by the end of the last printing operation. In the beginning processes of finishing a certain amount the in the succeeding sheets (usually hundred sheets) usually pile up on each other, to obtain a consistent stop sheets; these feet are then treated one after the other so that when the cutting of printed sheets of securities by row and by column could separate bundles of securities. Then these packs usually are folded to form sets of packs, usually ten packs in each.

1 schematically shows a top view of the handling device foot sheets, indicated as a whole by the number 1 position, which is designed to handle foot sheets in separate bundles; this device works according to the method similar to that disclosed in U.S. patent No. 4283902 (see also U.S. patent No. 4453707, 4463677, 4558557, 4558615 and 4653399). This device is used for processing sheets at a typical speed of 10,000 sheets per hour. Position SS in this example indicated this foot sheets, which usually consists of hundreds of successive sheets, stacked on top of each other. As already mentioned, it is understood that each sheet has an array or matrix of securities is printed on the sheet, consisting of M columns by N rows. The actual number of columns and rows of prints of securities on the leaves depends, obviously, on the size of sheets and the size of each fingerprint securities.

In the scope of the present invention, and for the sake of clarity, the term "column" ledue is to be understood as a reference to the location of the prints securities one next to another along the first dimension of the sheets, hereinafter referred to as "sheet length", while the term "line" should be understood as a reference to the location of the prints securities one next to the other along the other dimension sheets, hereinafter referred to as "sheet width", as schematically shown in figure 2. Strictly speaking, the terms "column" / "string" and "sheet width / sheet length" are used interchangeably. According to the above definition, the length of the sheet generally correspond to the size of sheets (or section of the roll), which is parallel to the direction of movement of the sheet or continuous roll) through the printing machine or machines that are used to perform printing operations, while the width of the sheet corresponds to the size of sheets in the direction perpendicular to the direction of movement of the sheets or continuous rolls). Sheet width is usually greater than the length of the sheet.

As usual characteristic of printing technology, dimensions (as individual sheets that are processed on a sheet-fed printing machines, and another parcel continuous roll processed on the web printing machines), can be up to 820 mm in width and 700 mm in length (i.e 820×700 mm). Given the size of the sheet it could accommodate, for example, six columns (M=6) ten (N=10) rows of prints securities having dimensions of 130×65 mm, While the dimensions of the sheet 740×680 mm nemnogo would be placed, for example, four columns (M=4) seven (N=7) rows of prints securities having a size of 180×90 mm sheets of small sizes, such as 420×400 mm, could accommodate, for example, four columns (M=4), six (N=6) rows of prints securities having dimensions of 100×60 mm above examples are, of course, only for the purpose of illustration.

On the schematic in figure 1 each worksheet contains five columns (M=5), ten (N=10) rows of prints securities, i.e. fifty prints of securities on the sheet. The stack of sheets SS is first served by incrementally along the direction y in figure 1) through the first cutting section CS1, where stop SS is cut along lines prints securities, so after this section out successive long strip packs S securities. In this example, you receive ten (N=10) of such strips S in the progressive cutting of each foot SS; each lane S contains the specified number of prints securities, namely, five hundred (i.e., M=5 multiplied by one hundred) prints securities in this case (i.e., the amount equivalent to five packs of hundreds of securities in each). When this field sheets (not shown) on the front and back edges of the leaves are usually also cut and removed.

Each band's packs securities then usually served successively through the wrapping section is Yu BS, includes several blocks binding, distributed along the length of each strip S (that is, along the direction x in figure 1), which provides reliable circular wrapping of the strip S in several places, which correspond to the location of the prints securities. The respective blocks strapping designed to perform piping (also called "obanderolivaniya"), disclosed, for example, in International publication no WO 2005/085070 filed on behalf of the present Applicant. In this example, the wrapping section BS includes as many blocks binding, how many columns prints securities included on each sheet, namely, five (M=5) blocks binding in this example. The operation of binding can be omitted or replaced by any other operation, serving to provide a reliable connection of securities with each other in the form of bundles, for example, stitching wire staples.

Each band's packs securities, which thus provides a reliable connection, and hereinafter referred to as bound stripe S* packs securities, then served from the wrapping section BS to subsequent processing sections. In the illustrated example, each encircled with a strip of S* served side (along the direction opposite to the x direction in figure 1) from the wrapping section BS and then (along direction y) is joined with the other the strips, in this case, all bound lanes S*, obtained from the initial foot SS, regroup, forming stopo-like set of SS* N bound lanes S* packs of securities corresponding to the location of the original foot SS. In stopo-like set of SS* bound lanes S* typically located near or even right next to each other.

Thus, stopa-like set of SS* bound lanes S* securities then fed incrementally (along direction x) through the second cutting section CS2, where stopo-like set of SS* cut along the columns of prints securities, so that the output form successive sets of 2 packs 5 securities; all bound lanes S* are cut at the same time and speed in the second cutting section CS2. In this example, the result postalcohol cutting each stope-like SS kit* made five (M=5) consecutive sets of 2 packs 5 securities, each of which is provided with a binding strip; each successive set 2 contains the specified number of packs 5 securities, which are located one behind the other, namely, ten (N=10) packs of 5 hundred individual securities in each (equivalent to one column of prints securities on the sheets lying on top of each other in the original foot SS). When this field (not shown) on the right and left edges of the sheets (i.e., the Shannon above and below stopo-like set of SS* in figure 1) also usually are cut and removed. Alternatively, as disclosed in U.S. patent No. 4283902, right and left margins can be cut by means of additional cutting devices before applying the paper stack SS to the first cutting section CS1.

Each set of 2 packs 5 securities must then be removed before you arrive the following set of 2 packs of 5. Further, each pack of 5 set 2 should be separated to form separate spaced packs of 5, as schematically shown in figure 1. This separation is necessary so that each bundle in the future could be treated separately, mainly to generate corresponding sets of 75 packs of 2 (referred to hereinafter as "kits packs"). This additional processing of individual packs of 5 sets of packs 75 includes, in particular, a 180° rotation in each of two 5 packs (this alternate rotation packs schematically shown in figure 1)to compensate for typical variations in the thickness of sheets of securities, for example, due to varying topography, the resulting gravure printing, presence of protective elements applied on certain areas of the substrate (type OVD - optically variable characteristics), or signs of protection securities created locally in the substrate (type watermarks, security threads, stains, etc). In this regard, the wrapping tape around each pack also bacnegative in the wrapping section BS offset relative to the middle part of each package.

Considering a typical processing speed of 10,000 sheets per hour, the new stop SS, formed from hundreds of sheets will be submitted to the first cutting section CS1 every thirty-six seconds(=(100*3600)/10000), resulting in, for the second cutting section CS2, new set of 2 from N packets every 5 36/M seconds (or a new package every 5 36/(M*N) seconds). In this example, where each leaf has five (M=5) columns and ten (N=10) rows of prints securities, this means that a new set of 2 from N packets arrive every 7,2 (=36/5) seconds, i.e., the new bundle 5 - every 0,72 (=36/(5*10)) seconds. Thus, the amount of time available for removal of each set of 2 from N packs and implementation of the above-mentioned operations division packs, limited.

To date, the operation of separation of the batches was performed by a separate entrainment and acceleration of each tutu set, using the appropriate hooks and/or pushers to create a large enough gap between the packs. However, this solution is not satisfactory because it requires relatively complex and large mechanism for separating packs. In addition, while there is a real risk that the bundle will not be properly captured or podtolknut grips/tappets, which can lead to jamming, jams and, worse, Nebra is the Imam damage to the packages.

Thus, there is a need for an improved solution that is simpler and more reliable design, which ensures to the extent possible, smooth processing of packets and reduces the likelihood of jamming and/or damage to the packages.

In addition, assuming that discussed above processing stop sheets in a single stack is the final stage in the production process, should be addressed on the optical and physical controls to ensure requirements for quality. This may be necessary, respectively, for the implementation of statistical quality control during production, that is, to retrieve one or more sample packs coming out last cutting section, to verify securities contained in these packs, for any errors or physical damage, mainly to ensure that the securities were cut properly and that the so-called line position logging (i.e. the position of the fingerprint relative to the cutting edges is correct. However, just to extract one or more packets from the stream of packets, as it leads to a break in the sequence of submission of batches. You must either insert the appropriate number of replacement packs in those places in the stream of packets, where were WPI is echani samples, or return samples packs after you expertise back to their place in the stream. Such actions must be performed during processing without interfering with the continuous processing of packages. Re-introduction into the production stream of packets is especially critical for performance, if you are a continuous stream of packets having consecutive numbering (as described in International publication no WO 2004/016433 mentioned above), because the sample tutu(tutu) can be returned to the production flow only in the proper place(s).

When using the known solutions, it is very difficult to implement statistical process control due to the specific mechanical design of the system and time limits (usually there is an insufficient amount of time to retrieve one or more sample packs from the stream and insert the replacement tutu(tutu) or return a custom tutu(tutu) after the examination).

Thus, there is a need for an improved method and device for processing bundles of securities.

The invention

A detailed description of the preferred embodiment of the invention. Figure 3-7 is illustrated the first embodiment of the method and device for processing bundles of securities in accordance with this invention. 3 to 7 are partial schematic views illustrating the main components of the processing device packs. Some parts that are not relevant to the invention, have been omitted for the sake of convenience of explanation. Typical types of processing device packs in the collection, according to Fig.3-7, shown in Fig and 9.

As shown in the drawings, a sequential series 2 coming one after the other packs 5 securities appear on the platform 10 with the left side of the device. Figure 3 and 4 show only two such set of 2 packs 5, while on Fig and 9 shows three sets of 2 packs of 5. These sequential series 2 packs of 5 made in the same manner as discussed in the initial cha the minute description with reference to figure 1. In other words, sequential series 2 coming one after another reams 5 operations, progressive and postalcohol cutting of the paper stack SS, as shown in figure 1, that is, every new set of 2 packs 5 consists of a certain number of packs of 5 (namely, of the ten packs in the example in figure 3-7 and eight packs in the example on Fig and 9), each of which is usually provided with a wrapping strip, resulting from the final cutting operation corresponding set of sheets. In this regard, it is necessary to understand that the platform 10 is placed over the last cutting section, which produces sets of 2 individual packs of 5 (i.e. for cutting a section of CS2 in figure 1) and that each set 2 consists of many packs of 5, which are located side by side, equal in number to the number of rows N of prints securities on each sheet and changes depending on the layout sheet. Sets 2, respectively, serves on the platform 10 along the direction indicated in figure 3, 4, 8, and 9 of the arrow A. This is the direction parallel to the x axis of the coordinate system (x; y), indicated on the drawings (the same applies to the second variant implementation of the invention, which will be discussed later with reference to figure 10-12).

Securities primarily and preferably equipped with at least one alphanumeric sequence number, p is chitaetsa on the sheet (or roll) in accordance with the principle of numbering opened in International publication no WO 2004/016433, which is incorporated herein in its entirety by reference. Indeed, this principle of numbering can be produced a continuous stream of securities with sequential numbers, and the stack 5 of the securities may be simply stacked one on another without disturbing the sequence of continuous numbering. In this case, you don't need no comparison system packages that collects and combines packs with the appropriate numerical sequence, which would be necessary when using conventional technologies numbering, for example, by purely mechanical enumerators.

According to this first variant implementation of the invention, bundles 5 are sent from the platform 10 in section 7 of the interim provisions for the formation of the intermediate set of 8. Tutus come from section 7 in its lower part and are transported on the conveyor 20, which runs along the y-axis sequentially before section removal packs or device 30 and the partition boot packs or device 40, which will be described in more detail later.

For conveyor 20 also has a section 70 styling packs, where they will prepare the sets of 75 packs. At the end of the conveyor 20, before section 70 styling packs, there is a conveying device 45, to ensure proper transfer of PA the EC 5 from conveyor 20 to the partition 70. Separate the phases and devices involved in the processing of the packet, as described in more detail below.

In a set of 2 packs 5, as defined in this description, tutus 5 preferably are aligned side by side along their longer sides (the longer sides arranged along the x-axis) in the direction indicated by the axis of the coordinate system (x; y), indicated on the drawings. Sets of 2 packs 5 serves on the platform 10 one after the other along the direction of the arrow a until they reach the position indicated by POS. In figure 3, 4, 8, and 9; the situation is on the same line along the y-axis, and that section 7 of the intermediate accumulation and the conveyor 20 (and also conveying device 45 and section 70 styling packs). From this position In packs of 5 set 2 are directed in section 7 along the direction marked by the arrow C, by using the well-known conveyor device, which is not considered here, but may be of a design similar to the conveyor device 45. This conveying device may include, for example, a number of plungers, which are made with the ability to move back and forth parallel to the axis of the above packs of 5, fueled in section 7 of the intermediate accumulation.

Packs of 5 from the entire set 2, therefore, is directed to section 7 of the intermediate accumulation preferably n is stronger slope 6, descending down to section 7, which contains the first and second clamps 13, 15 along the y-axis on both sides of the section 7. Section 7 also has a wall with side walls (not shown)located on its both sides along the axis X. the Inclined slope 6 has the advantage that it allows to properly guide bundle 5 in section 7 and prevents the coup packs during the process of folding. When this individual packs of 5 reach sequentially, i.e. one after the other, the inclined slope 6 and slide along it by inertia and gravity, reaching section 7, and fall between the clamps 13, 15. In examples 5 to 7, the bundle indicated by the numeral 5', shown moving along the bottom edge of the slope 6 and is partially placed on top of the obtained intermediate set of 8 six packs of 5. Assume that the first 5 packs to reach section 7 of the intermediate accumulation, fluent in her fall. The conveyor 20 is in this example, directly behind the section 7 so that the intermediate set of 8 packs 5 was formed directly on the abutment of the inclined portion 28 of the conveyor 20; reference inclined portion 28 preferably extends from the bottom section 7 of the intermediate accumulation to the same level as the platform 10. Accordingly, the intermediate set of 8 packs 5 is formed by conducting packs 5 along the inclined slope is 6 through the top opening 9 of reception packs, located in the upper part of the section 7. Section 7, therefore, is filled from its Foundation to the top of the coming one after the other packs 5, thereby forming an intermediate set of 8.

Inclined slope 6 and section 7 is shown in more detail in figure 5 - 7. The timing packs of 5, the angle of repose 6, the gap between the tabs 13, 15 and the height of the section 7 are selected on the basis of ensuring the formation of an intermediate set of 8 properly. You should take into account that these settings will be adjusted in accordance with the actual size and weight of packs of 5. With this in mind, it would be advantageous to design the slope 6 so that its angle of inclination and/or height of an intermediate set of 8 can be adjusted. Similarly, the position of the latch 15 along the y-axis is preferably adjustable. As shown schematically in Fig.7, the angle of the slope 6 can be adjusted, for example, by means of the adjusting bolt 11, which acts on the lower edge of the slope 6, while the slope 6 attached to the bottom of the platform 10 can be rotated on the front edge of the slope 6. Material inclined slope 6 is also an important factor that should be taken into account when adjusting the angle of inclination of the slope, because it affects the speed with which the bundles 5 slide on a slope . Of course, can be provided and other devices to adjust the angle of slope of 6, such as a regulating device driven by the engine, or the adjustment mechanism having a manually rotatable wheel or traction, etc.

Preferably, the inclined angle of repose 6 relative to the horizontal plane defined by the axes x and y), is in the range of 10-45°, more preferably 20-35°, and most preferably 22-30°. Accurate, actually taken, the angle will depend on the parameters outlined above, and weight of each individual packs of 5.

In the examples in figure 3-7 shows the section 7 of the intermediate accumulation, the construction of which is such that it is formed intermediate set of 8 six packs of 5, that is, of the number smaller than the actual number of packs of 5 (namely, ten in the example in figure 3-7)contained in each set of 2; this implies that not all bundles 5 are sent simultaneously in section 7. In this example, packs of 5 from this set of 2 is preferably directed in section intermediate accumulation in several stages, for example, the first section 7 is sent only the first five or six packs of 5 set 2, and then the remaining four or five packs of the set, one after the other with a speed corresponding to the speed at which section 7 is released by the conveyor 20 in its lower part; the same process can be performed before as the next set of 2 packs 5 reaches the position C. the Alternative, section 7 may be arranged so that all N packets 5 set 2 could be addressed in section 7 for the formation of the intermediate set of 8, consisting of N packets of 5. This should be properly selected depth of section 7, to avoid damage packs of 5 as a result of their fall.

In versions of the invention shown in figure 3-9, section 7 of the intermediate accumulation is located directly above the conveyor 20 so that the lower intermediate bundle kit 8 marked 5 on 5-7, comes and goes directly to support the inclined portion 28 of the conveyor 20. Successive bundles 5 are stacked on the lowermost pack of 5". Tutu out of 5 section 7 one after the other in the lower part of the intermediate set of 8 through the opening 25 to extract packs available between the holder 15 and the abutment of the inclined part 28, as can be seen in Fig.6 and 7. In these drawings a pack of 5", located at the bottom of the intermediate set of 8, depicted at the moment when she's in the process is removed from the base of the intermediate set of 8 under the action of the pushers 21, 21' of the conveyor 20; these pushers 21, 21" function retrieves the device.

From the above it follows that the intermediate set of 8 in section 7, under option run from the retene in figure 3-9, can continuously be filled with new incoming sets of 2 packs 5, while the bundles are extracted in the lower part of the intermediate set of 8 under the action of the conveyor 20. The above settings (for example, adjustment of the conveyor device, promoting packs 5 from the platform 10 to the inclined slope 6, the angle of repose 6, etc), play a role in ensuring the continuity of the process and prevent damage packs 5 during installation of packages in section 7 of the intermediate accumulation.

The term "section intermediate accumulation"is used to refer to item 7 on the above-mentioned drawings, should be understood as a construction meant for elimination of batches of 5 stacked in the form of the platform 10. Figure 3-9 shows two elements that keep packs of 5, namely, the rear latch 13, which may take the form of a vertical plate, which is attached to the supporting ramp 28 of the conveyor 20, and the front retainer 15, which may also be in the form of a vertical plate, which is attached to the frame (not shown in figure 3-7) processing device packs, preferably a way that allows adjustment. On Fig and 9 schematically illustrates that the front retainer 15 is mounted on the vertical frame side, the position of the front retainer 15 is adjustable in both directions along the y-axis. Of course, instead of the lip is 13, 15 may be any other suitable holding device, for example, the control rods.

As is clear from Fig.6 and 7, the front retainer 15 section 7 is located so that there remains a hole or gap 25 between its lower end and the surface of the base inclined portion 28 of the conveyor 20. This hole 25, the height of which is slightly greater than the height of the stack 5, preferably is adjustable to the height of each stack 5. As already explained, pack of 5, located in the lowest position in the intermediate set of 8, may extend from the intermediate section 7 of accumulation through the opening 25, as shown in Fig.6 and 7.

The conveyor 20 includes a support inclined part 28 and at least one channel available in the specified reference inclined part 28, which runs along the direction of transport of the packs of 5 and are directed pushers. As shown in the drawings, there are two channels, marked with the numbers 24, 24' positions, which provide for the passage of respective pairs located at a distance from each other of the plungers 21, 21', under the direction of these channels.

The output of or removing the lower unit 5" from the base of the intermediate set of 8 through the hole 25 is implemented by pairs of plungers 21, 21'. These plungers 21, 21' are installed in a row and attached to a pair of parallel endless the belts or chains 22, 22', which are directed and are driven by respective toothed wheels 23, 23', one of which is driven by means, for example, at least one associated actuator 26, which is partially visible in figure 4 and which rotates the lower right pair of gear wheels 23, 23' of the conveyor 20 (see also figure 10 and 12, which shows a similar drive unit). The actuator 26 causes the specified pair of gear wheels 23, 23' in a continuous or semi-continuous) rotation, causing displacement of the associated circuits 22, 22' and pushers 21, 21'. The speed of the conveyor 20 preferably can be adjusted by means of the actuator 26.

Gears 23, 23' are arranged in such a way that the plungers 21, 21' are placed and routed along the transport direction (i.e. in the vertical plane including the y axis) in the corresponding pair of channels 24, 24' of the reference inclined part 28, which pass along the conveyor 20. Only the upper part of each of the pusher 21, 21' passes through the corresponding channel 24, 24', which directs the pusher, speaking at a height sufficient to engage the sides of the packs of 5, located on a support inclined part 28, and their transfer to the conveying direction. It should be noted that the height of the pushers 21, 21', passing over the surface of the base portion 28, preferably can ismenias is along the path of the conveyor 20. For example, when a pair of plungers 21, 21' is included in the channels 24, 24' of the support part 28, to enter into an interaction with the side of the lower unit 5" intermediate set of 8 in the lower part of the section 7 of the intermediate accumulation, the height of the pushers 21, 21' must be less than the stack height to get only the lowest bundle 5" intermediate set of 8. Thereby avoiding damage to the remaining packs of 5, located in the intermediate set of 8 above the lower recoverable pack of 5", and only the lowest bundle 5" pushed through the opening 25. As soon as the bundle 5 is extracted from the intermediate set of 8, the height of a pair of plungers 21, 21' on the supporting part 28 can be increased, which can be achieved by the approximation of the belts or chains 22, 22' to the supporting part 28 section 7, thereby reducing the risk that a pack of 5 slips off pushers during transport on the conveyor 20.

The conveyor 20 includes supporting the inclined part 28, the pushers 21, 21', the chains 22, 22' and the gear wheels 23, 23', moves, thus, bundles 5 with a certain interval along the inclined support portion 28. May provide additional functional devices along the path of the packs of 5, as will be described below.

From the above it follows that section 7 performs a buffer function, as it collects at one time a number of the packs of 5. On the other hand, the conveyor 20 performs as a function of the ejector to eject the stack 5 one by one from the base of the intermediate set of 8, and the function of the separator to be separated from each other by a certain interval extracted so packs of 5. The interval separating two packs 5 on the conveyor 20, is determined by the distance between adjacent pairs of pushers 21, 21' on chains or belts 22, 22'. The transport speed packs of 5 and, thus, the rate at which bundles are extracted from the lower end of the section 7, are determined by the speed of the conveyor 20, which may be properly adjusted by regulating the speed of movement of the chains 22, 22'that is performed by configuring the actuator 26 of the toothed wheels 23, 23', as mentioned above.

By section 7 of the intermediate accumulation along the path of the packs of 5, which are transported by the conveyor 20, is provided by section 30 of the pickup packs, visible on figure 3, 4, 8, and 9. This section 30 includes a device 32 removal packs, designed for automatic removal of any sample packs 5 from the conveyor 20. As mentioned above, removal of the sample packs are usually performed in order to check the quality of processing of securities in the secondary processes. We mean, in particular, such a sampling, in order to make possible the so-called statistical control is produced in the manufacturing process. With this in mind, you can usually inspect the processed bundles of securities for any defects that may occur due to incorrect cutting produced during an earlier stop processing paper in bundles, in particular for problems with the so-called position of the line of cutting, i.e. the deviation between the positioning of the prints securities each security and its edges. Device quality control and method of monitoring the position of the line of cutting bills and similar securities are disclosed, for example, in International publication number WO 01/14111 and WO 2008/029340, issued to the present Applicant.

Preferably, it is possible to install at least one optical system for section 30 of the removal of the packs, in order to perform optical quality control of batches 5 and/or read the mark on the 5 packs. In particular, can run optical character recognition sequence numbers are printed on the upper part of the upper securities each pack 5, or any distinguishing marks, printed or marked otherwise on the securities or on the fastening tape covering each pack of 5. Such a system of optical character recognition, or OCR module 85, schematically shown in Fig and 9. Thanks OCR module 85, it is possible to provide automatic opesn the existence and the possible extraction of selected and specified number of packs 5, for example, extract a set of 2 packs of 5. Alternatively, the operator can arbitrarily choose any pack of 5 for quality control and extract this pack of 5 semi-automatic way, if necessary, activating the device 32 removal of packages.

Preferably, sample packs, which are extracted from the stream packs of 5 are put device 32 removing packs at least one corresponding cumulative container, designated by the number 31 position, in which the sample packs, extracted from the stream packs of 5, are formed in the foot. One such cumulative container 31, as shown in figure 3 and 4, is located on one side of the transport route packages 5 and on Fig and 9 show three additional accumulation container 31 located on the other side of the road transport packs of 5. In this last example, the device 32 removing packs preferably is designed to move the sample packs in both directions across the path of transportation of the packs of 5. The containers 31 are preferably, for convenience, are interchangeable, so that the operator can take one cumulative container 31, which are selected stack and replace it with an empty container 31.

Once the sample pack is removed from the conveyor 20 in the flow of bundles 5 is formed empty space. This blank space should be filled to the e to prevent violation of the sequence of the 5 packs and guarantee the formation of the foot packs 75 of the appropriate size and with the necessary number of packs of 5. Accordingly, by section 30 of the removal of the packs section provides 40 input packets to enter the appropriate number of replacement packs in the empty gaps in the stream of packets of 5. Section 40 of the input packets includes at least one feed container 41 containing replacement packs, which are placed directly above the path of the conveyor 20. Figure 3 and 4 shows one such feed container 41, and Fig and 9 shows three such feed container 41, which preferably are interchangeable. Replacement packs can be any appropriate packages of securities and are marked so that they could be identified as replacement packs. For example, they may have a specific sequence of serial numbers, which differs from the sequence of sequence numbers currently used in the processing unit packs. In this regard, as a replacement packs can be used the so-called "labeled with an asterisk packs", that is, bundles of securities, in which the sequence numbers are appended with an extra character or symbol such as an asterisk "*"in order for recognition could easily distinguish the replacement packs from the "normal" packages. This method is used, for example, in Australia, India, New Zealand and the United States of America.

By section 40 of input packs mo is but to be placed, preferably, the second optical system, indicated by the number 86 position, which may be identical to the first optical system or 85 optical character recognition above. Optional OCR module 86, located in section 40 of input packs would be useful to automatically log sequence numbers (or similar labeling) replacement packs, which were introduced in section 40 of the input packets.

In the examples shown in figure 3-9, transportation packs 5 conveyor 20 ends per section 40 of input packs (Fig.3-7), respectively, for the second optical system 86 (Fig and 9). From this point of bundles 5 are transported further by the conveyor device 45, containing the plungers, which cling on the top side of the 5 packs. This conveying device 45 preferably operates step-by-step way (in contrast to the conveyor 20, which operates continuously or semi-continuous), so that successive packs of 5 was transferred to located next section 70 styling packs, which are formed alternately foot packs 75.

Section 70 styling packs includes in this example, the turntable 71, visible in figure 3 and 4, in which one serves packs of 5. On this rotary table 71 includes actuator 72 with movable grippers, which can move in the horizontal pleskot and serve to temporarily hold incoming packets 5, for their side, over the rising foot packs, which is formed on the turntable 71. In this example, the rotary table to rotate the growing foot packs 75 180° before the next pack 5 release actuator 72 and placed on top of the growing foot packs 75. In the end, are formed foot packs 75 sequence 5 packs alternately rotated by 180°, as schematically shown in figure 3. As soon as the formation of the foot packs 75 is completed, it moves away from the turntable 71 devices, not shown, to make way for the installation of the subsequent packets. As indicated above, this alternate stacking of packages allows to compensate for typical variations in the thickness of sheets of securities, for example, due to changes in topography, the resulting gravure printing, presence of protective elements applied on certain areas of the substrate (type OVD - optically variable characteristics), or signs of protection securities created locally in the substrate (type watermarks, security threads, stains, etc).

Figure 10-12 shows the second embodiment of the present invention which is basically similar to the variant shown in Fig.3-7. Therefore, similar components are denoted by the same numbers of positions and will not describe who I am again.

Figure 10-12, respectively, shows the platform 10, which is along the direction of the arrow And serves the next 2 sets of 5 packs; packs of 5 serves to partition T of the intermediate accumulation, which in this example, only one latch 15', which performs the function of the pusher. Unlike the first version of the design, section 7' is used for the formation of multiple intermediate sets of 8' packs 5; intermediate sets of 8' temporarily accumulated in the accumulating section 29 made in this example in the form of shelves, which is located under the platform 10.

The first actuator 16 that functions as a transportation device sets, serves to push the intermediate set of 8', located on the cumulative plot 29, by means of a clamp 15' along the direction opposite to the y-axis. Preferably, in the lower part of the section 7' is provided additional actuator 17, which is used to selectively raising or lowering the support plate 17A, which are composed of bundles of 5. Thus, the depth of the section 7' can be adjusted in the process of laying it packs 5.

At the end of the accumulating section 29 there is an additional mechanism for feeding the first intermediate set of 8* many intermediate sets of 8', located on the cumulative plot 29, in pocket 7* Prohm is the filling of the accumulation, which has a rear and front tabs, not indicated in the drawing. Installed additional actuator 18, acting from below, to ensure the supply of the intermediate set of 8* in pocket 7* intermediate accumulation by lowering another intermediate set of 8' with a cumulative plot 29.

Front retainer pocket 7* intermediate accumulation is arranged almost in the same manner as the latch 15 from the first variant implementation of the invention, so that was the hole 25* to remove the packs between the lower edge of the retainer and the surface of the base part 28 of the conveyor 20. According to this second variant implementation of the invention, the conveyor 20 is located directly below the pocket 7* intermediate accumulation and operates in exactly the same way as the pipeline discussed in the first embodiment, that is removing the lower unit from the base intermediate set of 8*contained in the pocket 7*, under the action of the pushers 21, 21', which are driven from the chains 22, 22' and the gear wheels 23, 23'. Packs of 5 then transported further by the conveyor 20 through section 30 of the removal of packs and section 40 of the input packets to section 70 of stacking units, as explained above.

Cumulative plot 29 for accumulation of intermediate sets of 8' performs functions the s intermediate buffer, with a large buffer capacity compared to the buffer of the first variant implementation of the invention, is shown in figure 3-9. This increased buffer capacity used for creation of reserve time needed by the operator in order to selectively extract one or more sample packs from the platform 10 and to return these sample packs back into the stream packs of 5 at a later stage of processing, as explained above.

According to the second variant implementation of the invention shown in figure 10-12, sample pack can be removed from a set of 2 packs 5 on the platform 10, or manually by the operator or by the relevant extracts of the mechanism mounted on the platform 10. In the construction shown in figure 10-12, it is necessary to take measures to custom pack, taken from the platform 10 does not have any negative impact on the processing of packages. Therefore, it is preferable to extract one or more sample packs, starting from the end of set 2 (i.e. the left part of figure 10 and 12) so that they do not influence the order of the packets in the intermediate result set 8'formed in the partition 7' (to custom tutu(tutu) housed in the upper part of the intermediate set of 8'). Thus, it is guaranteed that the empty spaces that occur on the conveyor 20 will correspond to adjusting the number of placements remote sample packs.

Custom tutus, taken from the platform 10 may be returned to the stream packs 5 when using section 50 of the insert packs, similar to section 40 of the input packet, as discussed earlier. This section 50 of the insert packs may, for example, include at least one container 51 located above the through route of the conveyor 20, in which sample packs would be placed back into the stream. Before section 50 of the insert packs can be installed OCR module, not shown in the drawing, to provide for automatic return of sample packs in the appropriate blank space in the flow of bundles 5.

As mentioned above, increased buffer capacity in the second embodiment, the invention would provide sufficient time for the operator to perform manual validation sample packs before these sample packs will be returned back to the thread packs of 5.

Can be made various changes and/or improvements to the above described embodiment of the invention, without departing from the scope of the attached claims. For example, despite the fact that the conveyor in the above embodiments perform mainly performs as a function of the ejector, and the separator, it is possible to envisage other solutions that removing the packs from the lower part of the intermediate set is the first device is, for example, using a separate extraction mechanism, prior to the actual transfer to the conveyor with spaced pushers; in this case, the pipeline would perform only the function of the separator. However, the above solution is preferable because it is easier to implement.

In addition, section 7 of the intermediate accumulation of the first variant implementation of the invention shown in figure 3-9, can be modified by setting the movable support plate and an actuating mechanism similar to the mechanism (i.e. the elements 17 and 17A), which is used in the second embodiment of the invention shown in figure 10-12, to be able to adjust the depth of the section So

Furthermore, note that figure 1 shows only the preferred processing device foot sheets intended for recycling foot sheets in consecutive sets coming one after the other packs securities adjacent side by side. Can be developed by any other processing device foot sheets, the output of which would be the next sets coming one after the other packs securities adjacent side by side. In particular, the processing unit of the foot plates can be used to release the next sets coming one after the other packs securities adjacent side by side, which correspond to the full line of prints securities retrieved from foot of sheet, not the full column prints securities, as shown in figure 1. In addition, the wrapping section BS, shown in figure 1, is not mandatory and can be replaced, for example, a section of stitching for fastening the tape packs wire staples S.
