As shown in Fig. 3, the second stage 27 rotates the second lever 21 in sooth kulathupuzha gears 48 and 49, i.e. having a corresponding variable radius toothed profiles 50 and 51, which obkatyvalisj one another with gear ratio W, which changes in accordance with the point of contact between profiles 50 and 51.

Its final drive ratio W is determined by the ratio between the angular velocity Wcthe driven wheel 49 and the angular velocity Wmthe drive wheel 48; it varies within this field determines the movement of the element 18 and provides the shape of the trajectory T and the velocity V with which the element 18 is moved along parts T1 and T2 trajectory So the Velocity V contains a vector component Vdin the direction D1 and the vector component of Vtcrosswise to direction D1, and also depends on the ratio between the distances 11 and 12, the value of which is determined at the stage of construction that the movement element 18 in contact with groups of 2 is such that the component Vdessentially equal to the speed V2 at which the group 2 served in the direction D1.

Gear 48 mounted on the shaft 44 and is placed along the toothed wheel 40 with the possibility of joint with the wheel 40 to rotate around the axis D, and a gear wheel 49 mounted for rotation on a shaft 42 arranged along the toothed wheel 41 and under ), gears 48 and 49 are used for converting a rotation generated by the drive gear 40 rotating toothed wheel 39, the rotation of the variable speed in accordance with the value of the ratio W, and also serve to Orient the second lever 21 in accordance with the main arm 20, to set the element 18 in position, the liberating path P along part of the trajectory T2 So

Gears 48 and 49 have respective variable radii Rmand Rc. Gear 4B contains at least one portion 52, which engages with a corresponding part 53 of the toothed wheels 49 and has a radius Rmgreater than the radius Rwithpart 53; and at least one part 54, which engages with a corresponding part 55 gears 49 and has a radius Rmless than the radius Rwithpart 55.

Its final drive ratio W, determined by the ratio between the angular velocities Wwithand Wmalso equal to the ratio between the radii Rmand Rwithso, when in practice, the part 53 of the gear 49 engages with the corresponding part 52 of the gear wheel 48, the velocity Wwithmore speed Wm; while in practice, when part 55 gears 4B fact, group 2, which are separated from one another by a distance P1, serves feeding device 4 along the path P to the transfer node 1 with essentially constant linear velocity V2 is parallel to the direction D1. As the group 2, coupled on both sides with straps 8, in essence comes to the vertical to the sheet 7 through the axis A, the element 18 engages with a number of groups 2 and pushes the group in the receiving node R, where the group engages with the head 13 of the input device 5 and is fed in the direction D2 at the above-mentioned cardboard machine.

Moving the transfer element 18 along the trajectory T is determined by the combined rotation of the lever 20 about the axis A, the element T8 about the axis and the lever 21 about the axis b and in accordance with the lever 20 and the arm 20 rotates around the axis And from the motor 22 through a belt 24; element 18 is rotated about the axis by rotating the toothed wheel 41 around the toothed wheel 39 with the lever 20 and through the transfer 43 to provide work element 18, parallel to itself at all times with a fork 37, transverse to the direction D1; as the lever 21 rotates in accordance with the lever 20, a rotating toothed wheel 48, made in one piece with the toothed wheel 40, and through the rotation of the toothed knee gears 40 in rotation with variable speed.

In Fig. 4 the trajectory T of the element 18 is shown with its origin at the lowest point 56 of the fork 37 item 18, and the vertical distance between the point 56 and the sheet 7 is changed in accordance with the value of the ratio W at the point of contact between the gear wheels 48 and 49. As noted, the speed V of the element 18 along the trajectory T also depends on gear ratio W. In particular:

along part of T1, which begins, in essence, the point at which the element 18 comes in contact with group 2, the component of Vtremains zero, while the component of Vdpasses from the initial value, approximately equal to the speed value V2 group 2, to the intermediate value, the greater the value of the velocity V2, and eventually to the final value of zero at the end point part T1; and each group 2 gently captured element 18 and accelerates along part of T1, thus, at the receiving point it is separated from the next group 2 distance P2 greater than the distance P1;

along the initial part of the T2 immediately after the part of T1, the element 18 is reversed, and the component of Vtincreases; element 18 after the first zero component of Vdunloads group 2 inside the receiving point R itself from the pressure element 18 from the sheet 7 defines an unlinked the position of the element 18 is not only in accordance with the by R groups 2, but also in accordance with the actual groups 2, i.e. the position in which the point 56 is absolutely raceplane with 2 groups;

along the end part T2 just before part of the T1 component of Vtdirected toward the sheet 7 in order to cause the element 18 to engage with the path P; and a component Vdassumes a value approximately equal to the speed value V2 to gently bring the top element 18 to the group 2.

In a variant that is not shown in the drawings, the node 1 contains instead of the counterweight 29 further element 18 and a further pair of levers 20 and 21 to accelerate the filing of groups 2 to the point R without complicating the structure of the node 1.

In a further embodiment that is not shown in the drawings, the axes a, b and C of node 1 vertical; conveyor belts 8 form a bottom support base and a top surface for holding groups of 2 in the transverse direction; and the leaves 7 and 11 act as retaining elements for the 2 groups.

Unlike od traffic over the channel 10, the transmitting element 18 is, therefore, moves along the channel 10, and the head 13 moves the reciprocating through the point R in the horizontal direction D2.

Due to the fact that the epicycle gear 25 of the drive device 19 has a notch 27, kotomine in accordance with the point of contact between the wheels 48 and 49, the shape of the trajectory T and the instantaneous speed V of the element 18 can be easily adapted to the requirements of the feeding device 4 and the conveying device 5. In other words, the use of two gear wheels 48 and 49, having a variable gear ratio W, allows you to adjust the dynamic characteristics of the element 18 (trajectory T and the instantaneous speed V) to the characteristics of the feeding device 4 and the conveying device 5 instead of adapting the characteristics of the feeding device 4 and the conveying device 5 to the dynamic characteristics of the element 18.

Drive means 19 can be preferably used not only in the described site, but also, for example, in a node (not shown) for transferring cigarettes from a rod cigarette making machine to a machine for setting filters.

Transmitting nodes of this type are well known in the art and are disclosed, for example, in GB 2110065, the description of which is presented here.

GB 2110065 reveals the node to move to cigarette manufactured from twin cigarette making machine to machine to install filters in which the transmitting node has many heads, each of which is capable of transmitting two semi-cigarette, and drive Stronck at the output of the cigarette making machine and copy the paragraph at the entrance of the machine to install filters. The driving device has an epicycle gear mechanism with a fixed sun wheel, a driven planetary carrier rotatable about an axis coaxial with the sun wheel, and a set of planetary wheels, each of which is at an angle combined with the appropriate head.

Due to the limited degrees of freedom of the above-described drive unit dynamic characteristics of each head (trajectory and the instantaneous speed) do not fit perfectly to the requirements on the output of the cigarette making machine and at the entrance of the machine to install filters. In order to avoid such a drawback, U.S. patent 4051947 reveals the transmitting node, in which the drive unit also includes Cam means for modifying the trajectory of each head. Adding Cam means allows you to get the best trajectory, but leads to complexity, i.e. the price of the drive device is significantly increased.

In the transmitting node of the type disclosed in GB 2110065 may be used in a driving device having epicycle gear comprising two toothed wheels, mating angle between a and having a gear ratio which is changed in accordance with tochno attitude, can be used to concatenate each of the planetary wheels of the planetary carrier.

Drive device described above, a relatively simple, i.e., inexpensive, and allows you to set the dynamic characteristics of each head (trajectory and the instantaneous speed) in accordance with the requirements on the output of the cigarette making machine and at the entrance of the machine to install filters.

Drive unit containing epicycle gear, have a degree that includes two gears, scalewise between them and having a gear ratio varying in accordance with the point of contact between the gear wheels can also be used in sharpening nodes for sharpening the blades of a rotating cutting head is installed on the output of the cigarette making machine for cutting a continuous rod of tobacco produced such a machine. Sharpening the node of this type is disclosed, for example, in U.S. patent 4472900 and contains a truncated-conical grinding wheel, which moves along a circular trajectory with epicycle gear, which can be advantageously modified by the use of a drive device, having epicac is enough attitude, which varies in accordance with the point of contact between the gear wheels.
