[0074] In relation to one grinder 50 for executing the beating process throughout the whole process of the beating process, this one grinder 50 plays the function of a plurality of grinders from the grinder for initial period to the grinder for terminal period of the beating process. Specifically, the beating gap G of the beating action faces 51 a, 52 a of this grinder 50 is controlled and adjusted to be narrower gradually from the initial period to the terminal period of the beating process. [0075] The grinder 50 of the illustrated preferred embodiment as shown in FIG. 2 is installed adjacently to the macerating tank 25 of the macerating unit 20 , in an apparatus machine body 54 for composing the apparatus case 6 , and as shown in FIG. 3 , it includes a beating tank 55 communicating with the macerating tank 25 of the macerating unit 20 , the pair of beating disks 51 , 52 rotatably provided relatively in this beating tank 55 , a rotation drive source 56 for rotating the pair of beating disks 51 , 52 relatively, and gap adjusting means 57 for adjusting the beating gap G of the pair of beating disks 51 , 52 . [0076] The beating tank 55 is formed in a closed cylindrical shape capable of accommodating the pair of beating disks 51 , 52 , and has a supply port 55 a for supplying the used paper pulp UPP from the upstream side, and a discharge port 55 b for discharging the beaten used paper pulp UPP to the downstream side. [0077] Specifically, the supply port 55 a is opened toward the vertical direction in the center of the bottom of the beating tank 55 , and the discharge port 55 b opened toward the horizontal direction at the cylindrical side of the beating tank 55 . The supply port 55 a and the discharge port 55 b are connected, as shown in FIG. 3 , to communicate with the macerating tank 25 of the macerating unit 20 , respectively by way of circulation pipings 49 a, 49 b, and the discharge port 55 b further communicates with a used paper pulp collection tank 60 by way of a discharge piping 59 . [0078] Reference numeral 61 is a direction changeover valve, and by the switching action of this direction changeover valve 61 , the used paper pulp UPP discharged from the discharge port 55 b is selectively returned to the macerating tank 25 , or collected in the used paper pulp collection tank 60 . The direction changeover valve 61 is specifically an electromagnetic valve, and it is electrically connected to the device control unit 5 . [0079] One of the pair of beating disks 51 , 52 is a fixed side beating disk fixed and provided in the rotating direction, and the other is a rotating side beating disk capable of rotating. In the illustrated preferred embodiment, the upper side beating disk 51 is the rotating side, and the lower side beating disk 52 is the fixed side, and with respect to the lower side fixed side beating disk 52 , the upper side rotating side beating disk 51 is disposed oppositely concentrically and rotatably across a tiny beating gap G. This rotating side beating disk 51 is coupled and driven to a driving motor 56 by way of a rotation main shaft 64 supported rotatably at the fixed side of the apparatus machine body 54 and movably in the axial direction. [0080] The rotation main shaft 64 is rotatably supported on an elevating member of the gap adjusting means 57 although not shown specifically, and the rotating side beating disk 51 is fitted to its leading end concentrically and integrally, and its base end part is driven and coupled to the rotation shaft of the driving motor 56 integrally in the rotating direction, and relatively movably in the axial direction. [0081] The driving motor 56 is a rotation drive source, and it relatively rotates the pair of beating disks 51 , 52 , and an electric motor is used specifically, and this driving motor 56 as the drive source is electrically connected to the device control unit 5 . [0082] Opposite faces 51 a, 52 a of the both beating disks 51 , 52 forming the tiny beating gap G cooperate with each other, and form beating action faces. These opposite beating action faces 51 a, 52 a are grinding wheel surfaces formed of multiple abrasive grains bonded by a bonding material. The both beating action faces 51 a, 52 a are formed in a taper shape, as shown in FIG. 3 , so that the diameter dimension may be larger continuously in the mutually opposite directions, and the outermost peripheral edges are mutually parallel annular flat surfaces, and these annular flat surfaces form the beating gap G. [0083] In other words, in the pair of beating disks 51 , 52 , at the central position of the beating action face 52 a of the fixed side beating disk 52 , an inlet 70 is formed so as to communicate coaxially with the supply port 55 a of the beating tank, and two annular flat surfaces formed on the outer peripheral edges of the beating action faces 51 a, 52 a of the pair of beating disks 51 , 52 communicate with the discharge port 55 b of the beating tank 55 , and form a outlet 71 having the beating gap G. [0084] On the outer circumference of the rotating side beating disk 51 , a plurality of blades 72 , 72 , . . . are provided at specified intervals in the circumferential direction, and these blades 72 , 72 , . . . are rotated by the rotating side beating disk 51 , and the used paper pulp UPP discharged from the outlet 71 is forced out by pumping action toward the discharge port 55 b of the beating tank 55 by a centrifugal force. [0085] In this way, by the driving motor 56 as the drive source, when the rotating side beating disk 51 is rotated and driven with respect to the fixed side beating disk 52 , the used paper pulp UPP supplied in the beating space B from the macerating tank 25 of the macerating unit 20 by way of the supply port 55 a and the inlet 70 of the beating tank 55 flows into the beating space B from the inlet 70 , and passes through this beating space B, and is pressurized and beaten by the relatively rotating beating action faces 51 a, 52 a, and the inks forming characters and patterns on the used paper UP are ground and pulverized, and the used paper UP is discharged through the discharge port 55 b of the beating tank 55 from the outlet 71 . [0086] When being discharged from the outlet 71 , the used paper pulp UPP further receives the pressurizing and beating actions at the location of the outlet 71 having the beating gap G, and is pulverized to a micron size (to be micro fibers) specified by the beating gap G. [0087] In this regard, in the present preferred embodiment, as mentioned above, since the used paper pulp circulation route 49 is provided with the circulation beating process (see FIG. 3 ) having one grinder 50 , that is , the one grinder 50 functions as a plurality of grinders from the grinder for initial period to the grinder for terminal period of the beating process, and the beating gap G of this grinder 50 is controlled and adjusted so as to be gradually narrower from the initial period to the terminal period of the beating process by the gap adjusting means 57 . [0088] The gap adjusting means 57 is composed to control and adjust the beating gap G of the beating disks 51 , 52 , although not shown specifically, by moving the pair of beating disks 51 , 52 relatively in the rotation axial direction, and is mainly composed of moving means (not shown) for moving the rotating side beating disk 51 in the rotation axial direction, that is, in the axial direction of the rotation main shaft 64 , and a drive source 66 for driving this moving means. The drive source is specifically an electric motor, and this driving motor 66 is electrically connected to the apparatus control unit 5 . [0089] By rotation of this electric motor 66 , the rotation main shaft 64 is moved up and down by way of the moving means, and the rotating side beating disk 51 integral with the rotation main shaft 64 is moved in the vertical direction to the fixed side beating disk 52 , that is, in the rotation axial direction, and the beating gap G of the both beating disks 51 , 52 is controlled and adjusted. [0090] For this purpose, a position detection sensor (not shown) is provided for detecting the elevating position of the rotating side beating disk 51 , and by the detection result of the position detection sensor, the driving motor 66 is controlled and driven. The position detection sensor is electrically connected to the device control unit 5 . [0091] The beating gap G of the beating disks 51 , 52 by the gap adjusting means 57 is controlled and adjusted in mutual cooperation with a circulation pump 69 as circulation means, in the circulation beating process in the used paper pulp circulation route 49 shown in FIG. 3 . [0092] That is, in FIG. 3 , the used paper pulp UPP macerated and processed in the macerating unit 20 is circulated in the used paper circulation route 49 by means of the circulation pump 69 , and the beating process is executed by the grinder 50 , and at this time the beating gap G of the beating action faces 51 a , 52 a of the grinder 50 is adjusted to be narrower gradually from the initial period to the terminal period of the beating process by the gap adjusting means 57 . [0093] In this manner, one grinder 50 is disposed in the used paper pulp circulation route 49 , and the beating gap G of this grinder 50 is controlled and adjusted to be narrower gradually from the initial period to the terminal period of the beating process in the circulation system, and therefore in a very narrow process space of furniture size, the used paper pulp UPP is repeatedly and sequentially processed by the pressurizing and beating action and the ink grinding and pulverizing action by the beating action faces 51 a, 52 a of grinder 50 becoming gradually narrower in the beating gap G, and further the beating and the ink grinding and pulverizing actions are executed uniformly on the entire used paper pulp UPP circulating in the used paper pulp circulation route 49 . As a result, an optimum paper tenacity is obtained for the recycled paper RP made and regenerated in the paper making unit 4 described below, and the recycled paper RP of high degree of whiteness (equal to de-inked quality) will be obtained. [0094] The used paper pulp circulation route 49 includes the macerating tank 25 of the macerating unit 20 , and in this relation, in the beating process, the agitating device 26 of the macerating unit 20 is driven and controlled, and the macerating unit 20 and the beating unit 21 are drived at the same time. That is, in the circulation type beating process, while the used paper pulp UPP flows out from the macerating tank 25 into the used paper pulp circulation route 49 , the used paper pulp UPP after beaten by the grinder 50 flows into the macerating tank 25 , and therefore in the macerating tank 25 , the used paper pulp UPP different in the beating degree is mixed, and by the agitating action by the agitating device 26 , the beating degree of the used paper pulp UPP in the macerating tank 25 is made uniform, and the beating process is promoted. [0095] The used paper pulp collection tank 60 is a location for collecting the used paper pulp UPP beaten and pulverized to a specified size by the beating unit 21 , and the used paper pulp UPP collected herein is sent into the pulp concentration adjustment unit 3 to be processed into a pulp suspension PS mixed and adjusted to a paper making concentration corresponding to the finished paper quality of the recycled paper RP to be regenerated before being sent into the paper making unit 4 of the next process of paper making process. [0096] The pulp concentration adjustment unit 3 is a weight type device for adjusting the mixing rate of the used paper UP and the water W to be charged into the apparatus, and adjusting the concentration of the used paper pulp UPP to be supplied in the paper making unit 4 , and specifically as shown in FIG. 4 , it includes a beating concentration adjustment unit 3 A, a paper making concentration adjustment unit 3 B, and a pulp concentration control unit 3 C, [0097] The beating concentration adjustment unit 3 A is intended to adjust the beating concentration of the used paper pulp UPP in the pulp making unit 2 , corresponding to the beating efficiency by the beating unit 21 , and mainly includes the water feed pump 46 for beating concentration adjustment of the water feed device 27 , as mentioned above, and a beating concentration control unit 75 . [0098] The supply amount of white water W by the water feed pump 46 of the beating concentration adjustment unit 3 A is preferably set so that the beating concentration of the used paper pulp UPP macerated and beaten by the agitating device 26 may be the maximum concentration allowable for the beating capacity of the grinder 50 of the beating unit 21 for executing the next process of beating process, and in the illustrated preferred embodiment, it is set to be a beating concentration of about 2% as mentioned above. [0099] The beating concentration control unit 75 drives and controls, as mentioned above, the water feed pump 46 so as to supply a necessary amount of water W into the macerating tank 25 , depending on the measurement result from the weight sensor 48 . This beating concentration control unit 75 forms a part of the device control unit 5 as described below. [0100] The paper making concentration adjustment unit 3 B is for adjusting the paper making concentration of the used paper pulp UPP in the paper making unit 4 to an appropriate concentration corresponding to the finished paper quality of the recycled paper RP for regenerating, and is specifically designed to adjust the concentration of the used paper pulp UPP manufactured in the pulp making unit 2 in division type, and it mainly includes a division extraction unit 80 , a suspension adjustment unit 81 , and a paper making concentration control unit 82 . [0101] The division extraction unit 80 is for dividing and extracting a specified small amount from the whole volume of the used paper pulp UPP manufactured in the pulp making unit 2 in the proceeding process, and includes a used paper pulp supply pump 86 for division extraction for extracting the used paper pulp UPP of the used paper pulp collection tank 60 and sending into a concentration adjustment tank 85 . [0102] The suspension adjustment unit 81 is for preparing the pulp suspension PS of a specified concentration by adding a specified amount of water W for concentration adjustment to a specified small amount of used paper pulp UPP divided and extracted by the division extraction unit 80 , and mainly includes the water feed pump 47 of the water feed device 27 as mentioned above. [0103] Specifically, although not shown in the drawing, in the bottom of the concentration adjustment tank 85 , same as in the macerating tank 25 stated above, a weight sensor 87 formed of a load cell is provided, and it is designed to measure and control the amount of used paper pulp UPP and water W for concentration adjustment supplied into the concentration adjustment tank 85 , and the weight sensor 87 is connected electrically to the device control unit 5 . [0104] The paper making concentration control unit 82 is for controlling by interlocking the division extraction unit 80 and the suspension adjustment unit 81 , and forms a part of the device control unit 5 , and interlocks and controls pumps 86 , 47 of the division extraction unit 80 and the suspension adjustment unit 81 so as to execute the paper making concentration adjustment process as described below. [0105] First of all, from the whole volume of used paper pulp UPP collected in the used paper pulp collection tank 60 from the beating unit 21 (in the illustrated preferred embodiment, about 2000 g of used paper UP+100 liters of water W), a specified portion (1 liter in the illustrated preferred embodiment) of used paper pulp UPP is divided by the used paper pulp feed pump 86 , and is transferred and contained in the concentration adjustment tank 85 . As a result, the weight is sensed and measured by the weight sensor 87 , and the result is transmitted to the device control unit 5 . [0106] In succession, corresponding to the specified portion of the divided used paper pulp UPP, the water feed pump 47 supplies a specified amount of water W for dilution into the concentration adjustment tank 85 from the white water collection tank 45 (9 liters in the illustrated preferred embodiment (actually as measured by the weight sensor 87 )). [0107] In consequence, in the concentration adjustment tank 85 , the used paper pulp UPP of beating concentration (2% in the illustrated preferred embodiment) and the water W are mixed and diluted, and pulp suspension PS of specified concentration (in the illustrated preferred embodiment, about 0.2% concentration (target concentration)) is prepared. [0108] Meanwhile, the target concentration of the pulp suspension PS to be prepared is set in consideration of the paper making capacity in the paper making unit 4 as described below on the basis of the preliminary experiment, and it is set at about 0.2% as mentioned above in the case of the illustrated preferred embodiment. [0109] In this manner, the pulp suspension PS adjusted to the target concentration of paper making concentration (0.2%) in the concentration adjustment tank 85 is transferred and supplied into a pulp supply tank 89 from the concentration adjustment tank 85 by way of a first suspension supply pump 88 , and is temporarily stored in wait for the next process of the paper making unit 4 . Hereinafter, this paper making concentration adjustment process is repeatedly executed similarly for the whole amount of the used paper pulp UPP in the used paper pulp collection tank 60 . In the pulp supply tank 89 , a second suspension supply pump 90 is provided for sending the pulp suspension PS to a paper making belt conveyor unit 95 of the paper making unit 4 . [0110] An agitating device 91 is provided in the pulp supply tank 89 , and by the agitating action of this agitating device 87 ( 91 ?), the entire paper making concentration of the temporarily stored pulp suspension PS is maintained uniformly at a specific value. [0111] Thus, since the concentration adjustment by the paper making concentration adjustment unit 3 is not executed in batch of whole volume, but in small divided portions or dispensed portions, not only the water consumption is saved substantially, but also the shape and size of the concentration adjustment tank 85 can be reduced substantially, and the entire structure of the used paper recycling apparatus 1 is realized in a compact design. [0112] The pulp concentration control unit 3 C is to drive and control the beating concentration adjustment unit 3 A and the paper making concentration adjustment unit 3 B in cooperation, and specifically by receiving the pulp concentration control information (the charged amount of used paper UP, water supply amount to the macerating tank 25 , beating concentration of used paper pulp UPP, and others) from the beating concentration control unit 75 of the beating concentration adjustment unit 3 A, depending on this control information, the paper making concentration control information (the target paper making concentration of the used paper pulp UPP, the division extraction amount of the used paper pulp UPP from the used paper pulp collection tank 60 , the water supply amount to the concentration adjustment tank 85 , and others) for controlling the concentration of the used paper pulp UPP manufactured in the pulp making unit 2 to the target value (paper making concentration) is sent to the paper making concentration control unit 82 of the paper making concentration adjustment unit 3 B, so that the paper making concentration adjustment process mentioned above can be executed. [0113] The paper making unit 4 is a process unit for manufacturing recycled paper RP by making from the used paper pulp UPP manufactured in the pulp making unit 2 , and as shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 5 , it mainly includes a paper making belt conveyor unit 95 , a dewatering roll unit 96 , and a drying belt conveyor unit 97 , and the drying belt conveyor unit 97 is provided with the recycled paper smoothing process unit (recycled paper smoothing device, recycled paper smoothing means) 10 as a characteristic component of the present invention as mentioned above. [0114] The paper making belt conveyor unit 95 is a location for manufacturing wet paper by making from a slurry-like pulp suspension PS containing used paper pulp UPP mixed with water W sent from the pulp supply tank 89 of the pulp making unit 2 , and it mainly includes a paper making net conveyor 100 , and a pulp supply unit 101 . [0115] The paper making net conveyor 100 is for conveying the pulp suspension while making paper, and has a mesh belt 105 of paper making mesh structure composed of numerous mesh cells for filtering and dewatering the pulp suspension PS disposed to run straightly toward its running direction. [0116] Specifically, the paper making net conveyor 100 includes the mesh belt 105 formed as an endless belt conveying and running while making paper from the pulp suspension PS, and a drive motor 106 for driving this mesh belt 105 . [0117] The plate material of the paper making mesh structure for composing the mesh belt 105 is a material capable of filtering and dewatering the pulp suspension PS appropriately through numerous mesh cells of the paper making mesh structure, and preferable examples are polypropylene (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyamide (PA) (generally known as Nylon, a registered trademark), stainless steel (SUS), and other corrosion resistant materials, and in the illustrated preferred embodiment, a PET mesh belt 105 in heat resistance is used. [0118] The paper making mesh structure for composing the mesh belt 105 is preferably fine in mesh size, and fine and smooth in weaving mesh, and may be specifically selected depending on the characteristic of the desired paper, and for example, the following points are taken into consideration. (1) Mesh Size of Mesh Belt 105 [0119] The mesh size of the mesh belt 105 is preferably set at 25 mesh cells to 80 mesh cells, and in the illustrated preferred embodiment, the mesh belt 105 of 50 mesh cells is used. (2) Wire Diameter of Mesh of Mesh Belt 105 [0120] The mesh of the mesh belt 105 is determined not only by the number of mesh cells (size), but also by the wire diameter of the mesh. If the number of mesh cells is the same, the mesh size is smaller when the wire diameter is larger, or larger when the diameter is smaller, and this relation is expressed by the porosity of mesh, or the ventilation degree of airiness (cm 3 /cm 2 /sec). [0121] For example, when the mesh is fine and the ventilation is poor, the water filtering rate is low, and the shape and dimension of the pulp supply unit 101 described below may be longer in the running direction of the mesh belt 105 , and the apparatus is increased in size. To the contrary, when the mesh is coarse and the ventilation is good, the pulp supply unit 101 is short and the apparatus is small, but the paper quality of the recycled paper RP is coarse, and the difference of smoothness of the face and back sides is larger, and the paper is poor in smoothness. [0122] Considering these conditions comprehensively, the mesh belt 105 is desired to be small in the wire diameter of mesh, large in the number of mesh cells, and reticular in structure not lowering in the degree of ventilation, in order to present the used paper pulp UPP from slipping out of the mesh cells of the mesh belt 105 in the paper making process, and the mesh belt 105 in the illustrated preferred embodiment is a plain-woven PET mesh belt 105 of 50 mesh cells. By using this mesh belt 105 , it has been experimentally proved that a favorable paper quality suited to writing is obtained. [0123] The width dimension of the mesh belt 105 is set at a specified width dimension slightly larger than the width dimension of the recycled paper RP to be manufactured by making from the pulp suspension PS. [0124] The mesh belt 105 is supported and suspended so as to be rotatable by way of a drive roller 107 , a dewatering roll unit 96 , a driven roller 108 , and a support roller 109 as shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 5 , and it is driven and coupled to the drive motor 106 by way of the drive roller 107 . [0125] The paper making process length in the mesh belt 105 is set in a range of the upper side running direction length of the mesh belt 105 in the apparatus case 6 of furniture size (in the shown case, the lateral direction length from the pulp supply unit 101 to the dewatering roll unit 96 in FIG. 1 ). [0126] The running speed of the mesh belt 105 is set in consideration of the various conditions in the paper making process, and it is preferably set at 0.1 m/min to 1 m/min, and in the illustrated preferred embodiment, it is set at 0.2 m/min Incidentally, in the conventional used paper recycling plant of a large scale, the running speed of the paper making belt of this type was set at least at more than 100 m/min, or more than 1000 m/min in a faster version. [0127] The mesh belt 105 disposed so as to run upward obliquely and straightly toward its running direction as shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 5 , and the paper making process length is extended considerably in a limited space of installation, and the filtering and dewatering efficiency is enhanced in relation to the paper making mesh structure of the mesh belt 105 . [0128] The drive motor 106 for driving the mesh belt 105 is specifically an electric motor, and is electrically connected to the device control unit 5 . This drive motor 106 is also used as the drive source of the dewatering roll unit 96 and the drying belt conveyor unit 97 described below. [0129] The pulp supply unit 101 is a location for supplying the pulp suspension PS on the mesh belt 105 from the pulp making unit 2 , and its specific structure is not shown, but this pulp supply unit 101 supplies the pulp suspension PS, and diffuses widely and uniformly on the upper surface of the mesh belt 105 . The pulp supply unit 101 is provided at the paper making process starting end position of the paper making net conveyor 100 . [0130] By the second suspension supply pump 90 , the pulp suspension PS supplied in the pulp supply unit 101 from the pulp supply tank 89 is stored by a specified amount in the pulp feed unit 101 , and by the stagnant action, it is uniformly dispersed on the upper surface of the mesh belt 105 . The pulp suspension PS uniformly dispersed on the upper surface of the mesh belt 105 is conveyed together with the mesh belt 105 by the running action of the mesh belt 105 in the running direction, and is filtered by the own weight by the mesh of the mesh belt 105 , and is dewatered, and wet paper RP 0 (water content 90 to 85% in the illustrated preferred embodiment) is obtained. [0131] The white paper W filtered and dewatered by the mesh belt 105 (the pulp water of an ultra-low concentration filtered by the paper making mesh in the paper making process) is collected in the white water collection tank 45 of the water feed device 27 as mentioned above. [0132] The dewatering roll unit 96 composes a location for squeezing and dewatering the wet paper RP 0 on the mesh belt 105 at the linkage position of the paper making belt conveyor unit 95 mentioned above and the drying belt conveyor unit 97 described below. [0133] More specifically, the smooth surface belt 145 described below of the drying belt conveyor unit 97 at the downstream side, and the mesh belt 105 of the paper making belt conveyor unit 95 at the upstream side are stacked up in upper and lower layers as shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 5 , and the upper and lower adjacent portions of the smooth surface belt 145 and the mesh belt 105 are the linkage location, and at this linkage location, the dewatering roll unit 96 rolls and squeezes the mesh belt 105 and the smooth surface belt 145 by squeezing from upper and lower sides, thereby dewatering. [0134] The dewatering roll unit 96 includes at least a preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A, and a final dewatering roll unit 96 B. [0135] The illustrated dewatering roll unit 96 is, as specifically shown in FIG. 1 , mainly composed of the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A, the final dewatering roll unit 96 B, and an angle defining roll unit 96 C as auxiliary means. [0136] The preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A is for squeezing and dewatering the wet paper RP 0 on the mesh belt 105 preliminarily, and more specifically it includes a preliminary squeezing roll pair 122 consisting of a preliminary dewatering roll 120 for rolling on the mesh belt 105 from the lower side, and a preliminary press roll 121 for rolling and pressing on the smooth surface belt 145 from the upper side in relation to this preliminary dewatering roll 120 . [0137] By the preliminary squeezing roll pair 122 consisting of the preliminary dewatering roll 120 and the preliminary press roll 121 , the mesh belt 105 and the smooth surface belt 145 are rolled and squeezed in a pressed form by a specified preliminary pressure from the upper and lower sides, and the moisture contained in the wet paper RP 0 on the mesh belt 105 is preliminarily dewatered and removed. [0138] In this case, the preliminary pressure, that is, the preliminary squeezing force of the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A for preliminarily squeezing and dewatering the wet paper RP 0 on the mesh belt 105 is set in a range not to destroy the wet paper RP 0 having a large water content, and in the illustrated preferred embodiment, the preliminary squeezing force is set in a range so that the water content of the wet paper on the mesh belt 105 may be 80 to 75% after the preliminary dewatering process. [0139] The final dewatering roll unit 96 B is a location for finally squeezing and dewatering the wet paper RP 0 on the mesh belt 105 after preliminary dewatering in the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A to obtain dried paper (recycled paper) RP of a specified water content, and more specifically includes at least one set of final squeezing roll pair 127 consisting of a final dewatering roll 125 for rolling on the mesh belt 105 from the lower side, and a final press roll 126 for rolling and pressing on the smooth surface belt 145 from the upper side in relation to this final dewatering roll 125 . [0140] By the final squeezing roll pair 127 consisting of the final dewatering roll 125 and the final press roll 126 , the mesh belt 105 and the smooth surface belt 145 are rolled and squeezed in a pressed form by a specified final pressure from the upper and lower sides, and the moisture contained in the wet paper RP 0 on the mesh belt 105 is finally dewatered and removed, and a dried paper of specified water content, that is, a recycled paper RP is obtained. [0141] In this case, the final pressure, that is, the final squeezing force of the final dewatering roll unit 96 B for finally squeezing and dewatering the wet paper RP 0 on the mesh belt 105 is set to such a degree as to be capable of obtaining a specified dewatering effect securely on the preliminarily dewatered wet paper RP 0 , and in the illustrated preferred embodiment, it is set in a range of water content of 70 to 85% in the dried paper (recycled paper) RP on the mesh belt 105 after final dewatering. [0142] The rolls 120 , 121 , 125 , 126 in the dewatering roll unit 96 are not specifically shown in the drawing, but are driven and coupled to a single drive motor 106 by means of driving and coupling means composed of a gearing mechanism, and all rolls 120 , 121 , 125 , 126 are rotated and driven in mutual cooperation. [0143] In this case, these rolls 120 , 121 , 125 , 126 are rotated and controlled so that the outer circumference of the upper and lower rolls 120 , 125 , and the outer circumference of the rolls 121 , 126 may mutually roll and contact with each other and a slight rotating speed difference each other, with respect to the contact, surface of the mesh belt 105 and the smooth surface belt 145 (the lower side of the mesh belt 105 and the upper side of the smooth surface belt 145 ) being rolled and squeezed in a pressed state, between their outer circumferential surfaces. [0144] More specifically, the rotating speed of the preliminary and final press rolls 121 , 126 of the upper side is set slightly larger than the rotating speed of the preliminary and final press rolls 120 , 125 of the lower side, and hence the running speed of the smooth surface belt 145 is set lightly larger than the running speed of the mesh belt 105 . In this constitution, as described below, when the wet paper RP 0 squeezed and dewatered by the dewatering roll 96 is transferred and moved to the lower side of the smooth surface belt 145 of the upper side from the upper side of the mesh belt 105 of the lower side, a tension is applied to the wet paper RP 0 , and wrinkling of the wet paper RP 0 may be prevented effectively. [0145] The angle defining roll unit (angle defining means) 96 C is a location for assisting and validating the squeezing and dewatering action by the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A and the final dewatering roll unit 96 B, and it is provided at the upstream side of the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A, and defines the inclination angle between the mesh belt 105 and the smooth surface belt 145 inserted in the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A. [0146] The angle defining roll unit 96 C specifically defines the inclination angle between the mesh belt 105 and the smooth surface belt 145 inserted in the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A, and more specifically it includes a mesh belt guide roll 130 for defining the insertion angle of the mesh belt 105 into the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A by rolling on the mesh belt 105 from the lower side, and a smooth surface belt guide roll 131 for defining the insertion angle of the smooth surface belt 145 into the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A by rolling on the smooth surface belt 145 from upper side. [0147] The insertion angle of the mesh belt 105 into the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A is defined by the mesh belt guide roll 130 , and the insertion angle of the smooth surface belt 145 into the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A is defined by the smooth surface belt guide roll 131 , and therefore the inclination angle between the mesh belt 105 and the smooth surface belt 145 is determined indirectly in a specified range. [0148] The inclination angle between the mesh belt 105 and the smooth surface belt 145 is set so as to prevent the wet paper RP 0 from becoming slurry again by the preliminary dewatering action by the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A, as the moisture contained in the wet paper RP 0 is massively squeezed out to the upstream side of the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A, and the large amount of water thus squeezed is absorbed again in the wet paper RP 0 . [0149] In other words, by the preliminary dewatering roll 120 and the preliminary press roll 121 of the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A, when the mesh belt 105 mounting the wet paper RP 0 on the upper side and the smooth surface belt 145 are rolled and squeezed in a pressed state from the upper and lower sides, the moisture contained in the wet paper RP 0 is squeezed out to the upstream side of the both rolls 120 , 121 . [0150] In this case, if the inclination angle α formed between the mesh belt 105 and the smooth surface belt 145 is large, at a position near the upstream side of the both rolls 120 , 121 , the smooth surface belt 145 of the upper side is departed from the wet paper RP 0 on the mesh belt 105 at the lower side, and a part of the massive squeezed moisture contained in the wet paper RP 0 is absorbed again in the wet paper RP 0 and the wet paper RP 0 may become slurry again. [0151] By contrast, when the inclination angle a formed between the mesh belt 105 and the smooth surface belt 145 is small, at a position near the upstream side of the both rolls 120 , 121 , the smooth surface belt 145 of the upper side is pressed to the wet paper RP 0 on the mesh belt 105 at the lower side, and all of the massive squeezed moisture contained in the wet paper RP 0 falls down through the mesh belt 105 , and is not absorbed again in the wet paper RP 0 and the wet paper RP 0 may be prevented from becoming slurry again. [0152] The inclination angle a formed between the mesh belt 105 and the smooth surface belt 145 is preferably set at 1 to 20 degrees as a result of experiments, and more preferably set at 3 to 7 degrees, and it is set at 5 degrees in the illustrated preferred embodiment. [0153] Thus, by driving of the drive motor 106 , the rolls 120 , 121 , 125 , 126 of the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A and the final dewatering roll unit 96 B in the dewatering roll unit 96 are put in rotation, and first by the preliminary squeezing roll pair 122 in the preliminary dewatering roll unit 96 A, the mesh belt 105 and the smooth surface belt 145 are rolled and squeezed in a pressed state from both upper and lower sides with a specified preliminary pressure, and the moisture contained in the wet paper RP 0 on the mesh belt 105 is preliminarily dewatered and removed (in the illustrated preferred embodiment, the water content of the wet paper RP 0 is reduced from 90 to 85% to 80 to 75%). [0154] In succession, by the final squeezing roll pair 127 in the final dewatering roll unit 96 B, the mesh belt 105 and the smooth surface belt 145 are rolled and squeezed in a pressed state from both upper and lower sides with a specified final pressure, and the moisture contained in the wet paper RP 0 on the mesh belt 105 is finally dewatered and removed, and dry paper of specified water content, that is, recycled paper RP is obtained (in the illustrated preferred embodiment, the water content of the wet paper RP 0 is reduced from 80 to 75% to 70 to 65%). In this series of processes, the white water W squeezed and dewatered from the wet paper RP 0 is collected in the white water collection tank 45 of the water feed unit 27 . [0155] The wet paper RP 0 squeezed and dewatered in the dewatering roll unit 96 is transferred and conveyed to the lower side of the smooth surface belt 145 at the upper side from the upper side of the mesh belt 105 of the lower side at the downstream side location of the dewatering roll unit 96 , and is conveyed together with the smooth surface belt 145 , and the drying process by the drying belt conveyor unit 97 is executed. [0156] This transfer action is considered to be caused by the smooth surface structure of the smooth surface belt 145 . That is, the surface of the mesh belt 105 at the lower side is a fine undulated surface forming multiple fine continuous pores, while the surface of the smooth surface belt 145 at the upper side is a smooth surface without pores, and the wet paper RP 0 containing a slight moisture seems to be attracted by the surface tension against the surface of the smooth surface belt 145 . [0157] The drying belt conveyor unit 97 is a location for obtaining recycled paper RP by further heating and drying the dried paper RP squeezed and dewatered in the dewatering roll unit 96 after the paper making process in the paper making belt conveyor unit 95 , and mainly includes a drying conveyor 170 , a heating and drying unit 171 , and the recycled paper smoothing process unit (recycled paper smoothing device, recycled paper smoothing means) 10 mentioned above. [0158] The drying conveyor 170 smoothes and conveys the wet paper RP 0 squeezed and dewatered in the dewatering roll unit 96 , and mainly includes the smooth surface belt 145 , and the drive motor 106 for driving the smooth surface belt 145 . [0159] The smooth surface belt 145 is for conveying the wet paper RP 0 while heating and drying, and specifically it is an endless belt of plate materials of smooth surface structure having a specified width connected and formed like a ring of a specified length. The plate material of the smooth surface structure is any material capable of finishing the one side surface of the wet paper RP 0 to a proper smoothness, and withstanding the heating action by the heating and drying unit 171 described below, and preferably fluoroplastic, stainless steel, or other flexible heat-resistant material may be used, and a fluoroplastic belt is used in the illustrated preferred embodiment. [0160] This smooth surface belt 145 , as shown in FIG. 1 , is rotatably suspended and supported by way of a drive roller 176 , a driven roller 177 , the dewatering roll unit 96 , and a driven roller 178 , and is driven and coupled to the drive motor 106 by way of the drive roller 176 . [0161] The drive motor 106 for driving the smooth surface belt 145 , as described above, is used commonly as the driving source of the paper making net conveyor 100 and the dewatering roll unit 96 . [0162] The heating and drying unit 171 is a location for heating and drying the wet paper RP 0 transferred, rolled and conveyed on the smooth surface belt 145 from the mesh belt 105 of the paper making net conveyor 100 , and specifically the smooth surface belt 145 for conveying and supporting the lower side of the wet paper RP 0 is heated from the lower side by a heater 180 disposed in an intermediate position of the running route thereof. [0163] This heater 180 is a heater plate sliding and contacting with the opposite side of the conveying and supporting side of the wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 , and is provided in a horizontal direction running portion in the running route of the smooth surface belt 145 , and is provided in slide and contact with the opposite side of the upper side of the holding side of the wet paper RP 0 in the smooth surface belt 145 , that is, at the lower side. As a result, the wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 is heated indirectly and dried by the smooth surface belt 145 heated by the heater plate 180 . [0164] The specific structure of the heater 180 in the illustrated preferred embodiment is shown in FIG. 6 , and it is designed to function also as the recycled paper smoothing processing unit 10 . [0165] That is, the recycled paper smoothing processing unit 10 of the present preferred embodiment mainly includes the smooth surface belt 145 , and a belt guide unit (belt guide means) 200 for sliding and supporting this smooth surface belt 145 from the lower side, and guiding the smooth surface belt 145 in a running state being curved upward toward the running direction, and the belt guide unit 200 is provided with the heater 180 . [0166] The belt guide unit 200 is composed as shown in FIG. 5 and FIG. 6A , having a curved guide surface 200 a having a principal curved section, that is, a belt running direction section, curved upward toward the running direction of the smooth surface belt 145 , and this curved guide surface 200 a is formed, as shown in FIG. 6B , in a horizontal straight form on the section contour vertical to the principal curved section, that is, on the section contour in the belt width direction. [0167] More specifically, the belt guide unit 200 is a plate material curved upward toward the running direction of the smooth surface belt 145 , and having a horizontal and straight contour in the width direction, and this component material has a sufficient strength and wear resistance for sliding and supporting the smooth surface belt 145 from the lower side, and in particular a material excellent in heat transfer property is preferred as a base material for the heater plate. [0168] The belt guide unit 200 in the illustrated preferred embodiment is made of a stainless steel plate (SUS), and is mounted and supported on the apparatus machine body 54 by means of support base plates 201 , 201 , and its upper surface is the curved guide surface 200 a. Although not shown specifically in the drawing, the lower side 200 b of the belt guide unit 200 is integrally provided with a flat heater of a thin plate, and it is formed as a heater plate of the heater 180 . [0169] This flat heater of a thin plate is specifically a known electric heater, and in particular a flexible flat heater such as silicone rubber heater is ideal because it can be tightly adhered to the profile of the lower side 200 b of the curved stainless steel plate. [0170] On the curved guide surface 200 a of the belt guide unit 200 having such configuration, the smooth surface belt 145 is slidably disposed with a specified tension. As a result, the smooth surface belt 145 is guided slidably on the curved guide surface 200 a of the belt guide unit 200 so as to run in an upward curved state (see FIG. 5 and FIG. 6A ) [0171] Consequently, the wet paper RP 0 squeezed and dewatered by the dewatering roll unit 96 is transferred and rolled to the lower side of the smooth surface belt 145 of the upper side from the upper side of the mesh belt 105 of the lower side, and the smooth surface belt 145 is inverted to run by way of the rollers 178 , 176 , and the wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 conveyed by the smooth surface belt 145 is provided with a tension uniformly in the conveying and running direction, by means of the running action of the smooth surface belt 145 and the curved shape of the smooth surface belt 145 by the belt guide unit 200 ( 180 ). As a result, the wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 is effectively deprived of wrinkle and warp caused in the proceeding process of paper making process, and wrinkle and warp of the wet paper RP 0 caused by the heating and drying action by the heater plate 180 can be effectively prevented, so that the wet paper RP 0 is regenerated as a smooth recycled paper (dry paper) RP on the whole. [0172] At the downstream side of the heating and drying unit 171 on the smooth surface belt 145 , a stripping member 210 is provided, and the dry paper or the recycled paper RP (water content 10 to 7%) being dried and conveyed on the smooth surface belt 145 is sequentially stripped off from the holding side of the smooth surface belt 145 . [0173] In this relation, at the running route terminal end position of the smooth surface belt 145 at the downstream side of the stripping member 210 , a fixed size cutter unit 211 is provided, and the recycled paper RP stripped from the smooth surface belt 145 is cut to a specified size (in the illustrated preferred embodiment, an A4 size format), and is discharged from the outlet port 8 of the apparatus case 6 . [0174] The device control unit 5 is to control the driving parts of the pulp making unit 2 , the pulp concentration adjustment unit 3 , and the paper making unit 4 automatically by mutual cooperation, and is specifically composed of a microcomputer having CPU, ROM, RAM, and I/O port. [0175] This device control unit 5 stores programs for executing the pulp making process of the pulp making unit 2 , the concentration adjustment process of the concentration adjustment unit 3 , and the paper making process of the paper making unit 4 by mutual cooperation, and various items of information necessary for driving of the component units 2 ( 20 , 21 ), 3 ( 3 A, 3 B), and 4 ( 95 , 96 , 97 ) are preliminarily entered as data through keyboard or other input means appropriately, including, for example, the driving time and rotating speed of the agitating device 26 in the macerating unit 20 , the water feed timing and the water feed amount of the water feed device 27 , the driving time and the agitation amount of the circulation pump 69 in the beating unit 21 , the driving time and the rotating speed of the grinder 50 , the adjustment timing and the beating gap G adjustment amount of the gap adjusting means 57 , the running speed of the conveyors 100 , 170 in the paper making unit 4 , the driving time of the heating and drying unit 171 , and the operation timing of the fixed size cutter unit 211 . [0176] The device control unit 5 electrically connected with the weight sensors 48 , 87 , and the drive units 35 , 41 , 56 , 61 , 66 , and 106 as mentioned above, and the drive control unit 5 controls these drive units 35 , 41 , 56 , 61 , 66 , and 106 , according to these measured values and control data. [0177] The used paper recycling apparatus 1 having such configuration is started when the power source is turned on, and the component units 2 ( 20 , 21 ), 3 ( 3 A, 3 B), and 4 ( 95 , 96 , 97 ) are controlled automatically by mutual cooperation, and the used paper UP, UP, . . . charged into the inlet port 7 of the apparatus case 6 are macerated and beaten by the macerating unit 20 and the beating unit 21 of the pulp making unit 2 , and the used paper pulp UPP is manufactured, and the pulp suspension PS of paper making concentration is prepared in the pulp concentration adjustment unit 3 , and this pulp suspension PS is manufactured in the paper making belt conveyor unit 95 of the paper making unit 4 , the dewatering roll unit 96 , and the drying belt conveyor unit 97 , and is regenerated as recycled paper RP, and is discharged onto the recycled paper receiving tray 9 from the outlet port 8 of the apparatus case 6 . [0178] In this case, the recycled paper smoothing unit 10 in the drying belt conveyor unit 97 in the paper making unit 4 includes the smooth surface belt 145 for conveying and moving the wet paper RP 0 , and the belt guide unit 200 ( 180 ) for driving and guiding this smooth surface belt 145 in a state curved upward toward the running direction of the smooth surface belt 145 while sliding and supporting from the lower side, and hence the wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 conveyed by the smooth surface belt 145 is provided with a tension uniformly in the conveying and running direction by the running action of the smooth surface belt 145 and the curved shape of the smooth surface belt 145 by the belt guide unit 200 ( 180 ), and therefore in a very narrow used paper processing space of the used paper recycling apparatus 1 of furniture size to be installed not only in a large office but also in a small shop or a general household room, the wet paper RP 0 made and formed by the paper making net conveyor 100 in the paper making process can be securely regenerated as a smooth and wrinkle-free recycled paper RP. [0179] The wet paper made and formed in the paper making belt conveyor unit (paper making process unit) 95 for obtaining wet paper RP 0 by making from the used paper pulp UPP is sent into the drying belt conveyor unit 97 for composing the successive drying process unit, and conveyed on the smooth surface belt 145 , and heated and dried, and the wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 is provided with a tension uniformly at least in the conveying and running direction by the running action of the smooth surface belt 145 and the curved shape of the smooth surface belt 145 by the belt guide unit 200 ( 180 ) [0180] Therefore, the wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 is effectively deprived of the wrinkle or the warp caused in the proceeding process of paper making process, and occurrence of wrinkle or warp of wet paper RP 0 by the heating and drying action can be effectively prevented, and a smooth recycled paper RP is regenerated on the whole. Embodiment 2 [0181] This preferred embodiment is shown in FIG. 8 to FIG. 10 , in which the configuration of the recycled paper smoothing unit (recycled paper smoothing device, recycled paper smoothing means) 10 of preferred embodiment 1 is modified. [0182] That is, the recycled paper smoothing unit 10 of this preferred embodiment includes a pressing unit (pressing means) 250 for pressing the entire surface of the wet paper RP 0 conveyed by the smooth surface belt 145 with a uniform pressure from the upper side, in addition to the configuration of preferred embodiment 1. [0183] This pressing unit 250 is composed in a form of a covering belt conveyor specifically as shown in FIG. 9 and FIG. 10 . [0184] The covering belt conveyor 250 includes a covering belt 251 disposed and composed to run in a same horizontal direction in a state overlaid with the smooth surface belt 145 , and the drive motor 106 for driving this covering belt 251 . This drive motor 106 is used commonly as the drive source of the paper making net conveyor 100 and the dewatering roll unit 96 as explained in preferred embodiment 1. [0185] The covering belt 251 is an endless belt running while covering the entire wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 while tightly holding together with the smooth surface belt 145 , and its lower side, that is, the side covering the entire wet paper RP 0 together with the smooth surface belt 145 cooperates with the upper side of the smooth surface belt 145 , and a flat smoothing action surface is formed for smoothing the entire wet paper RP 0 . The covering range of the wet paper RP 0 (recycled paper RP) by the covering belt 251 is set in a range nearly opposite to the belt guide unit 200 (that is, the heater plate 180 ) in the running route of the smooth surface belt 145 . [0186] The covering belt 251 is specifically a mesh belt, and has a ventilation mesh structure composed of numerous mesh cells for passing and releasing the steam heated and evaporated from the wet paper RP 0 . [0187] The plate material of the ventilation mesh structure for composing the mesh belt 251 is a material capable of passing and releasing the moisture heated and evaporated from the wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 smoothly to the upper side from the numerous mesh cells, and preferable, same as in the mesh belt 105 of the paper making unit 4 mentioned above, desired examples are polypropylene (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyamide (PA) (generally known as Nylon, a registered trademark), stainless steel (SUS), and other corrosion resistant materials, and in the illustrated preferred embodiment, a PET mesh belt 251 excellent in heat resistance is used. [0188] The ventilation mesh structure of the mesh belt 251 is preferred to be fine in mesh size, and fine and smooth in weaving, and same as the mesh belt 105 of the paper making unit 4 described above, a specific material is selected in consideration of the characteristic of the desired paper. [0189] For example, the mesh size of the mesh belt 251 is set larger than in the mesh belt 105 of the paper making unit 4 due to difference in purpose, and it is preferably set at 12 mesh cells to 40 mesh cells (about 4 times of the mesh size of the mesh belt 105 ), and in the illustrated preferred embodiment, the mesh belt 251 of 25 mesh cells is used. [0190] As far as the mesh belt 251 satisfies the requirements of heat resistance of withstanding high heat in the heating and drying process, and the ventilation for passing the steam heated and evaporated from the wet paper RP 0 , strict design conditions as required in the mesh belt 105 forming the core of the paper making unit 4 are not needed, but the mesh belt 251 in the illustrated preferred embodiment is a plain-woven PET-made mesh belt of 25 mesh cells. [0191] The width dimension of the mesh belt 251 is set same as the width dimension of the smooth surface belt 145 as shown in FIG. 10B so as to overlap with the smooth surface belt 145 and hold the wet paper RP 0 in a sandwich state. [0192] The mesh belt 251 is rotatably suspended and supported by way of a drive roller 255 , and a driven roller 256 , and the drive roller 255 is driven and coupled to the drive motor 106 . [0193] The mesh belt 251 is slidably disposed on a curved guide surface 200 a of a belt guide unit 200 with a specified tension by way of the smooth surface belt 145 . As a result, in a state overlaid with the smooth surface belt 145 , the mesh belt 251 is guided slidably in a same direction on the curved guide surface 200 a of the belt guide unit 200 , and runs in an upward curved state (see FIG. 9 and FIG. 10A ). [0194] By such disposition and configuration of the mesh belt 251 , the mesh belt 251 pressed the wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 with a uniform pressure in the overall length of the covering range, and without causing warp or wrinkle in the wet paper RP 0 (recycled paper RP), the one-side surface of the wet paper RP 0 (recycled paper RP) contacting with the surface of the smooth surface belt 145 and the opposite-side surface are finished to an appropriate smooth surface. [0195] After the wet paper RP 0 squeezed and dewatered by the dewatering roll unit 96 is transferred and roll on the lower side of the smooth surface belt 145 at the upper side from the upper side of the mesh belt 105 of the lower side, the smooth surface belt 145 is inverted to run by way of the rollers 178 , 176 , and the wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 conveyed from the smooth surface belt 145 is provided with a uniform tension in the conveying and running direction by means of the running action of the smooth surface belt 145 , and the curved shape of the smooth surface belt 145 by the belt guide unit 200 ( 180 ), and by the pressing force by covering with the mesh belt 251 of the covering belt conveyor 250 from the upper side, the wet paper is heated and dried while being held in a sandwich state by uniform pressures from the upper and lower side. As a result, the wrinkle and the warp of the wet paper RP 0 caused in the proceeding process of paper making process are effectively eliminated, and occurrence of wrinkle or warp of the wet paper by the heating and drying process by the heater plate 180 can be effectively prevented, and the entire wet paper RP 0 is uniformly dried by an appropriate ventilation of the mesh belt 251 of the upper side, so that the wet paper RP 0 is regenerated into a smooth recycled paper (dry paper) RP on the whole. [0196] The running speed of the mesh belt 251 is controlled in synchronism with the running speed of the smooth surface belt 145 in the drying conveyor 170 in the drying process unit, and recycled paper of smooth and desired paper quality will be obtained. [0197] In other words, if the running speed of the mesh belt 251 of the upper side is not synchronized with the conveying speed of the smooth surface belt 145 of the lower side, the wet paper RP 0 (or dry paper (recycled paper RP)) may be loosened to be wrinkled, or torn apart by an excessive tension to the contrary, and desired smoothing processing effect may not be obtained. To prevent such inconvenience, it is necessary to synchronize the running speed of the mesh belt 251 with the conveying speed of the smooth surface belt 145 of the drying process unit 170 . [0198] In the illustrated preferred embodiment, the running drive source of the two belts 145 , 251 is the common drive motor 106 , and by the mechanical configuration of the drive transmission system, the running speeds of the two belts 145 , 251 are synchronized. [0199] The recycled paper smoothing unit 10 of the present preferred embodiment having such configuration is provided with the pressing unit 250 for pressing the entire wet paper RP 0 conveyed on the smooth surface belt 145 with a uniform pressure from the upper side, and this pressing unit 250 is formed as a covering belt conveyor having the covering belt 251 running while covering the entire wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 in a pressed state together with the smooth surface belt 145 . The lower side of the covering belt 251 cooperates with the upper side of the smooth surface belt 145 , and forms a flat smoothing action surface for smoothing the entire wet paper RP 0 . As a result, the wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 is heated and dried while being held in a sandwich state with a uniform pressure from the upper and lower side, by the pressing force by the covering belt conveyor 250 from the upper side, in addition to the smoothing action by the running action of the smooth surface belt 145 and the curved shape of the smooth surface belt 145 by the belt guide unit 200 ( 180 ), and hence smoothing of the entire recycled paper RP may be further promoted from the configuration in preferred embodiment 1. [0200] In other words, the wet paper RP 0 (recycled paper RP) is heated and dried while being held in a flat state, by the cooperative action of the sandwich structure of a specified pressure by the smooth surface belt 145 and the covering belt 251 , together with the uniform tension applied in the conveying and running direction, and the wrinkle and warp caused on the wet paper RP 0 in the proceeding process of paper making process is effectively lost and removed, and occurrence of wrinkle and warp of the wet paper RP 0 (recycled paper RP) by the heating and drying action by the heater plate 180 can be effective prevented further, and therefore in the very narrow used paper processing space of a furniture size, a smooth recycled paper RP free from wrinkle can be regenerated securely. [0201] Moreover, the covering belt 251 of the covering belt conveyor 250 is formed of a mesh belt composed of numerous mesh cells capable of passing and releasing the steam heated and evaporated fro the wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 to the upper side, in spite of the presence of the covering belt 251 , the steam generated by heating of the wet paper RP 0 can be effectively elevated and dissipated, and the drying process is smoothly promoted. [0202] Further, the running speed of the mesh belt for composing the covering belt 251 is controlled in synchronism with the running speed of the smooth surface belt 145 in the drying belt conveyor unit (drying process unit) 97 , and the wet paper RP 0 is stably maintained in a sandwich structure, and is heated and dried effectively. [0203] The other configuration and effects are same as in preferred embodiment 1. Embodiment 3 [0204] This preferred embodiment is shown in FIG. 11 , in which the configuration of the recycled paper smoothing unit (recycled paper smoothing device, recycled paper smoothing means) 10 of preferred embodiment 2 is slightly modified. [0205] That is, a curved guide surface 200 a of the belt guide unit 200 of the present preferred embodiment has a principal curved section curved upward to the running direction of the smooth surface belt 145 , and an auxiliary curved section curved vertically upward to this principal curved section. [0206] In other words, in the foregoing preferred embodiments 1 and 2, the belt guide unit 200 has the curved guide surface 200 a having a principal curved section curved upward toward the running direction of the smooth surface belt 145 , that is, the belt running direction section as shown in FIG. 6A and FIG. 10A , and this curved guide surface 200 a is formed in a horizontal straight state in a section contour vertical to the principal curved section, that is, in a section contour in the belt width direction, as shown in FIG. 6B and FIG. 10B . [0207] By contrast, in the recycled paper smoothing unit 10 of the present preferred embodiment, the belt guide unit 200 has the curved guide surface 200 a having a principal curved section (belt running direction section) curved upward toward the running direction of the smooth surface belt 145 , but this curved guide surface 200 a has an auxiliary curved section curved upward vertically to this principal curved section, same as in the principal curved section as shown in FIG. 11 . [0208] By such section structure of the curved guide surface 200 a of the belt guide unit 200 , the wet paper RP 0 on the smooth surface belt 145 receives the smoothing action by the running action of the smooth surface belt 145 mentioned above, and the curved shape of the smooth surface belt 145 by the belt guide unit 200 ( 180 ), and the pressing force by covering of the covering belt conveyor 250 , not only in the belt running direction but also in the belt width direction vertical thereto, and as a result the smoothing of the entire recycled paper RP may be further promoted from the configuration of preferred embodiment 2. [0209] The other configuration and effects are same as in preferred embodiment 2. Embodiment 4 [0210] This preferred embodiment is shown in FIG. 12 , in which the configuration of the recycled paper smoothing unit (recycled paper smoothing device, recycled paper smoothing means) 10 of embodiment 2 is slightly modified. [0211] That is, the mesh belt 251 of the covering belt conveyor 250 in the recycled paper smoothing unit 10 of the present embodiment is made of the mesh belt 105 for composing the paper making net conveyor 100 . [0212] This mesh belt 105 is, as shown in the drawing, disposed and configured to run straightly toward the running direction in the paper making belt conveyor unit 95 , and run by returning in the opposite direction in the drying belt conveyor unit 97 . As a result, the wet paper RP 0 made and formed in the paper making belt conveyor unit 95 is directly transferred to the drying belt conveyor unit 97 , and is dried and processed. [0213] The other configuration and effects are same as in preferred embodiment 2. [0214] The foregoing embodiments 1 to 4 may be modified and changed in design as described below. [0215] For example, the specific configuration of the recycled paper smoothing unit (recycled paper smoothing device, recycled paper smoothing means) 10 of the present invention is not limited to the illustrated preferred embodiments alone, but other configurations having similar functions may be employed. [0216] For example, in preferred embodiments 1 to 4, the drive motor 106 for driving the smooth surface belt 145 is used commonly as the running drive source of the covering belt 251 , and hence the running speeds of the both belts 145 , 251 are synchronized by the mechanical configuration of the drive transmission system, but by using individual independent running drive sources for the belt 145 , 251 , these drive sources may be electrically controlled in synchronism by the device control unit 5 . [0217] In the used paper recycling apparatus in preferred embodiments 1 to 4, the grinder 50 for composing the beating unit 21 of the pulp making unit 2 is used for pressurizing and beating the used paper by the beating action surfaces 5 l a , 52 a , and for grinding and pulverizing the inks forming the characters and patterns on the used paper, and by using only the tap water such as drinking water obtained from the general water services, the configuration requires no paper making chemicals such as used paper de-inking chemicals conventionally essential in large-scale used paper recycling equipment in the paper making plant or used paper recycling plant, and moreover the present invention is applicable, as a matter of course, not only in the used paper recycling apparatus capable of realizing used paper recycling by ordinary water alone, but also in the used paper recycling apparatus using paper making chemicals such as used paper de-inking chemicals. [0218] As the present invention may be embodied in several forms without departing from the spirit of essential characteristics thereof, the present preferred embodiment is therefore illustrative and not restrictive, since the scope of the present invention is defined by the appended claims rather than by the description preceding them, and all changes that fall within metes and bounds of the claims, or equivalence of such metes and bounds thereof are therefore intended to be embraced by the claims.
