Title: APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR INSERTING A CIRCULAR-BLANK CORE INTO A CIRCULAR-BLANK RING
Abstract:
The invention relates to an apparatus (10) and a method for inserting a non-round circular-blank core (11) into a non-round hole (14) of a circular-blank ring (13). The resulting circular blank (11, 13) is then transported onwards to an embossing press. A transporting device (20) serves for transporting the circular-blank ring (13) to an insertion location (22). A feed device (33) serves for transporting the circular-blank core (11) to the insertion location (22). The circular-blank core (11) is positioned here on the hole (14) of the circular-blank ring (13). The circular-blank core (11) is inserted into the hole (14) with the aid of a pushing-in device (43), which subjects the circular-blank core (11) to a pushing-in force (F). If the non-round hole (14) is not in alignment with the non-round circular-blank core (11), the circular-blank core (11) and the circular-blank ring (13) are made to rotate relative to one another at the insertion location by virtue of the pushing-in force (F) being generated. The circular-blank ring (13) is preferably moved, by the pushing-in force (F), onto an alignment mandrel (48), which causes the circular-blank ring (13) to rotate in its circumferential direction (U) until the contours of the circular-blank core (11) and of the hole (14) are in alignment and the circular-blank core (11) is moved into the hole (14).
