Abstract
(EN)
A printing press is provided. The printing press (100) includes at least one printing unit (112) printing on a web (101), a folder (110) for forming the web into a plurality of signatures (102), the plurality of signatures traveling in a stream (152, 154) at an initial pitch (Pi) and a pitch changing device (160) for changing the initial pitch of the plurality of signatures in the stream. The pitch changing device includes a first orbiting member (204) orbiting about a first axis (A) and rotating about a second axis (B) and a second orbiting member (204) orbiting about a third axis (A) and rotating about a fourth axis (B). The first orbiting member and second orbiting member form a nip (220) and the nip receives a stream of signatures. The first and second orbiting members vary a velocity of the signatures so as to alter the initial pitch. A folder and a method for changing a pitch between consecutive signatures is also provided.

L'invention porte sur une presse à imprimer. La presse à imprimer (100) comprend au moins une unité d'impression (112) qui imprime sur une bobine (101), une plieuse (110) pour faire de la bobine une pluralité de cahiers (102) circulant en flux (152, 154) à un pas initial (Pi), et un dispositif de variation de pas (160) permettant de faire varier le pas initial de la pluralité de cahiers qui forment le flux. Ledit dispositif de variation de pas comporte un premier élément orbital (204) décrivant une orbite autour d'un premier axe (A) et tournant autour d'un deuxième axe (B), ainsi qu'un second élément orbital (204) décrivant une orbite autour d'un troisième axe (A) et tournant autour d'un quatrième axe (B). Ledit premier élément orbital et ledit second élément orbital forment une ligne de contact (220) qui reçoit un flux de cahiers. Les premier et second éléments orbitaux changent la vitesse des cahiers de manière à modifier le pas initial. L'invention se rapporte également à une plieuse et à un procédé permettant de faire varier un pas entre des cahiers consécutifs.
