  • Patent number: 10046932
    Abstract: A turning device in a sheet-processing machine includes a sheet-guiding drum. The sheet-guiding drum has at least one gripper system for securing a front edge of a sheet. The sheet-guiding drum also has at least three casing segments cooperating in the circumferential direction and engaging with one another during format adjustment. A method for the format adjustment of a sheet-guiding drum is also disclosed. The object of the invention is to further improve the sheet guiding on format-adjustable sheet-guiding drums in sheet-processing machines. This is achieved in that a middle casing segment in the circumferential direction has a drive.

  • Patent number: 10000054
    Abstract: A sheet-guiding drum in a sheet-processing machine, comprises a gripper system, a gripper shaft, and a gripper tube. A method for producing a gripper system is also disclosed. The sheet-guiding drum further improves the sheet transport process, in particular the turning process, in sheet-processing machines. The problem addressed by the invention is in particular the provision of a low-wear rolling-element bearing that preferably eliminates the aforementioned disadvantages and, in particular, meets all further boundary conditions. This problem is solved in that the gripper tube is assembled from tube segments.

  • Patent number: 5384018
    Abstract: A cathode chamber (1) with a thermionic cathode (3) generates a low-voltage arc discharge in a vacuum treatment chamber (11). Arcing on wall portions of the treatment chamber (11) is prevented by providing a screen (20), operated so as to be electrically floating, in the region of a diaphragm (9), through which diaphragm (9) the discharge is drawn from the cathode chamber (1) into the treatment chamber (11). The discharge is ignited by impressing portions of the cathode chamber wall with the ignition potential, with respect to the potential of the cathode (3).
