3 Sheds-Sheet s INVENTORS. mff'. In: inform 601/496! ATTORNEY FORMING MULTIPLE PAGE PAMPHLET FIELD OF INVENTION This invention relates to method of making pamphlets having envelopes contained therein from paper stock, with additional pages from a wider starting web, or new fed ribbon.
BACKGROUND The above-noted copending application forms an envelope by one margin of a moving web, folding the web in half forming a crease therein, then in quarter fold at a longitudinal line having stitch glue thereon, the half-fold crease is slitted to separate pages, and the web is finally cut to sever separate pamphlets. The envelope is formed in the outer or cover page, and only one pair of other pages is formed inside.
SUMMARY According to the present invention, the paper stock having the envelope formed therein is in a wider stock, which is slitted to form separate ribbons, which are fed into superimposed relation with the envelope strip, and folded to form a multiple crease, secured together along the fold line, and finally cut transversely to sever the same into successive multiple page envelope containing pamphlets. Preferably these ribbons are superimposed by at least one turn bar and bay roller combination. The envelope may be inside the cover or outer pages of the pamphlet.
DRAWINGS FIG. 1 is an elevation of the paper stock in process of forming the multiple page envelope containing pamphlet;
FIG. 2 is a plan of the paper stock in process as shown in FIG. I;
FIGS. 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 are transverse sections taken at their stages along toward the completion of the process;
FIG. 9 is an elevation of an auxiliary glue unit;
FIG. 10 is a partial elevation showing a modification;
FIG. I I is a plan'view of the structure shown in FIG. 10;
FIGS. 12, 13, and 14 are partial elevations of FIG. 11;
FIG. 15 is a partial elevation of a further modification;
FIG. 16 is a plan of the modification shown in FIG. 10; and
FIGS. l7, l8, and 19 are partial elevations of FIG. 16.
PREFERRED EMBODIMENT The paper stock such as a web is continuously fed from a roll, and passes under a remoist glue applicator 10, which forms a flap sealing line 12. The stock then passes under a stitch and pocket glue applicator 14 which supplies pocket glue in transverse lines 16 at spaced intervals along the margin of the moving web, spaced outward from the remoist glue line 12.
A stitch glue line 20 is formed longitudinally on the moving stock spaced inward from the pocket glue pairs 16 and outward from the remoist glue line 12, by passing under a stitch glue applicator part 18 which forms a line of intermittent spots. The margin M passes to an envelope former 22, which as shown in FIG. 3 folds the outer part of the moving margin over the remaining part of the same and adhering the pocket glue pairs 16 thereto.
The moving stock then passes under a slitter 40, which divides the stock into ribbons P, R, and S. The slitter may also have a wheel 39 to form a line of perforations 41 for the ultimate removal of the envelope from the finished pamphlet. The ribbon S, which has a glue stitch line 42 thereon, passes over a turn bar 44, then under bay roller 46, up over a turn bar 47 to overlie the ribbon R as shown in FIG. 5. Each turn bar section consists of bars at right angles to each other and 45 to the stock. The distance between the bars controls the ribbon displacement.
The ribbon P having the envelope pocket glue l6 thereon passes over the turn bar 48, then under bay rollers 50, on up over its former path to turn bar 52, over which it passes down to overlie the ribbon S.
The turn bar and bay roller combination not only moves its ribbon laterally and into superimposed relation, but also turns it upside down into reversed position. Hence as shown in FIG. 3, the glue stitch lines 20 and 42 are on the underside of their respective ribbons P and S.
The superimposed ribbons P, R, and S now pass to half-fold former 54, which as shown in FIG. 7, brings the envelopes on the other side thereof, forming a multiple crease 56. The creased ribbons now pass to a transverse cutter 58 which severs the same at the center of the pairs of pocket glue lines 16 to form successive multiple page envelope containing pamphlets as shown in FIG. 8.
It should be noted that the paper stock may be wide enough to have the slitter 40 form an additional ribbon T, which passes down under a turn bar 60 on down over bay roller 62 under its former path and down over turn bar 64 to overlie the ribbon R, before the ribbon S is applied thereover.
Furthermore, an additional ribbon B as shown in FIG. 6 and pregummed on the bottom as at 66 by a glue unit 68 shown in FIG. 9 may be introduced at one side. This will pass over the turn bar 70 to underlie the ribbon R as shown.
As shown in FIGS. 10 and 11, the stock having remoist glue line 12, passes under a pocket glue applicator 72, which applies pocket glue transverse lines 73 with a joining longitudinal line 74.
The moving stock then passes under a slitter 40 which separates the margin M from the ribbon P. The margin M then passes down under the turn bar 75, around bay roller 76, and down over tum bar 77, to overlie the ribbon P. A separate preglued ribbon B can be added as shown in FIGS. 6 and 9.
In the form shown in FIGS. 15 and 16, the pocket glue lines 73 and 74 are applied to the stock portion which later forms the ribbon P. The margin M passes over turn bar 75, bay roller 76 and turn bar 77 to overlie the ribbon P.
What is claimed is:
1. Method of producing envelopes contained in pamphlets which comprises forming envelopes along paper stock;
folding said stock longitudinally beside said envelopes;
slitting said stock to form separate ribbons;
feeding .said ribbons into superimposed relation with said envelopes;
folding said superimposed ribbons to form a multiple crease;
securing the folded portions together along said multiple crease; and
finally cutting said stock transversely to sever the same into successive multiple page envelope containing pamphlets.
2. Method as claimed in claim 1, in which said ribbons are superimposed by the use of turn bars.
3. Method as claimed in claim 2, in which said turn bars cooperate with bay rollers.
4. Method as claimed in claim 1, in which longitudinal lines of adhesive are applied to certain of said ribbons before they are superimposed.
5. Method as claimed in claim 1, in which a line of perforations is formed in said stock between said envelope and said first crease.
6. Method as claimed in claim 1, in which said envelope containing ribbon is superimposed upon the other ribbons and folded inside thereof to lie between pages outside thereof.
7. Method as claimed in claim 1, in which an additional ribbon from a separate source is added to said superimposed ribbons.
8. Method as claimed in claim 1, in which said envelopes are formed by applying to said stock a pair of transverse lines of pocket glue; and
applying a longitudinal line of pocket glue between said transverse pocket glue lines.
9. Method as claimed in claim 1, in which said envelope bearing ribbon is separated from the others before it is brought into superimposed relation.
10. Method of producing envelopes contained in pamphlets which comprises median line to form a multiple crease; securing said folded strips together along said multiple crease; and finally cutting said stock transversely to sever the same into successive multiple page pamphlets.
