Wolfgang Reder has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
Abstract: A rotary printing press has at least one printing group with at least one waterless planographic printing forme. An inking unit is assigned to the printing group as is provided with a screen roller for use in conveying printing ink to the printing group. The screen roller has line engraving or cross-hatchings, with an angle of inclination or an angle of rise of between 50° and 80° and preferably also has a raster frequency of less than 80 lines or cross hatchings per centimeter on its surface area.
Abstract: The forces exerted by actuators are detected and devices are provided, which use those detected forces to regulate a pressure force exerted by one cylinder against another cylinder in a printing machine. The several forces can also be used for placing or removing one cylinder with respect to another cylinder. One cylinder may be mounted in a cylinder holder which is, in turn, mounted in a frame holder. At least two actuators are arranged between the cylinder holder and the frame holder. These actuators exert a radially directed force against the cylinder holder when they are actuated by a control signal.

Abstract: An inking unit for the printing couple of a double width printing press includes at least one roller. The inking unit consists of at least one, and possibly two chamber doctor blades. If there are two such chamber doctor blades, they are positioned side-by-side in an axial direction of the roller and they can operate independently of each other. If there is only one chamber doctor blade, it can have a length sufficient to enable the side-by-side positioning of at least four newspaper pages. The chamber doctor blade or blades can be positioned against or out of contact with the roller.
Abstract: A rotary printing press is operated using temperature controls. The temperature is set in accordance with a speed at which the printing press is operating. The temperature and speed are set to attain optimum printing results.
Abstract: The tack of an ink that is used in a printing group of a rotating printing press, or the temperature of a rotating component in the printing group is selected or controlled. This selection or control is accomplished in a manner so that optimal printing is achieved.
