PROTECTING END MEMBER FOR PAPER-ROLLS.
Specification of Letters Patent. Patentgd Di 26 191 Application filed June 27, 1917. SerialNo. 177,217.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, TRUMAN B. YV iAvER, a citizen of the United States, residing at the city and county of San Francisco and State of California, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Protecting End Members for Paper-Rolls, of which the following is a specification.
and of a size corresponding to the diameter of the roll. These protectmg end members,
which are positioned one at each end of the roll, serve to protect the'ends of the same from becomingtorn or injured, due to the trucking of the roll, and to support the roll as these rolls are usually positioned on the end during storage or transportation. The protecting end members at the present time employed have a flat outer surface and the circumferential edge thereof is held flush with the outer edge of the paper roll only by the protecting wrapping, so in order to tip the roll and permit the insertion of a truck, lip or tongue beneath the same, considerable effort by the truck operator is required, as the rolls are of considerable weight, and should the truck, lip or tongue strike the edge of the protecting end member the same is easily displaced from its'position flush with the edge of the paper roll, exposing that portion of the paper roll for injury and thus rendering useless the layers of the roll to the depth of the injured edge.
' The present invention relates to improve ments in roll end protecting members, and consists primarily in providing a protecting end member with means for maintaining the same in alinement with the ends of the roll, whereby lateral movement of the same relatively to the roll end is overcome, and also providing an adjustable means capable of positioning to permit of easy tipping of l the roll when on end to admit of insertion Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2 illustrating the preferred embodiment of the body head member.
Fig. at is a sectional view taken on the line A- B of Fig. 2 with the body head member projected beyond the outer face of the protecting end member.
Fig. 5 is a sectional view taken on the line 0-D of Fig. 3 illustrating the preferred body head member projected beyond the outer face of a protecting head member.
Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. 4 with the body head member lying flush with the outer face of the protecting head member.
Fig. 7 is a view similar to Fig. 5 with the preferred embodiment of the body head member lying flush with the outer surface ofthe protecting head member.
Referring more particularly to the several views of the drawings, wherein like characters of reference designate corresponding parts, 1 indicates a tubular open ended core around which the paper 2 is rolled. Over each end of the rollis positioned, preferably prior to shipping from the mill, a protecting end member 3, each preferably formed of wood and each of such size that the circumferential edge thereof will lie substantially flush with the outer surface of the roll thereby protecting the opposite ends of the roll from injury. The members 3 are formed of a plurality of laminations 3 of segmental shape arranged at right angles to each other and disposed with their inner edges in spaced relation, providing an opening 4 centrally thereof and adapted to lie in register with the ends of the core 1 when the end members are in position at the ends of the roll. The protecting end members are prevented from moving laterally on opposite ends by the bodies 5 projecting inwardly through the respective openings 4 into the opposite ends of the tubular core 1, said bodies each being of a diameter substantially equal to that of the core .1 and provided with a head portion 6, adapted when the bodies are in position as in the drawings to contact with the outer surfaces of the respective end members and provide a recess portion upon the exterior surface of said protecting end members, thereby end members is filled with a filler member V filled providing a depression 7 for receiving the head portion 6 and should it be desirable towrap a roll forshipment and provide alevel base for the same, the sides of the protecting end members provided with a 'depression 7 may be placed outwardly with the body head 6received in said depression 7 thereof, permitting theouter surface of the head 6 to lie flush with the outer surface, of the corresponding protecting end members 3. V a
In preparing a roll of paper for shipment from the mill, protecting end members are first positioned on the r lls with the body 5 through the opening l, the roll and end members are then wrapped within a protecting' cover 8 preferably of heavy paper which is folded over the outer surface .of the protecting end members asin Fig. l of the drawings and is secured in such manner as to retain the end members in contact with the ends of the roll.
While I have illustrated the body 5 of the preferred form, as having a circular head portion 6 and have provided a suitable depression in the protecting end member associated therewith for receiving the same when desired, it is to be understood that the head may be elongatedas at 9 inFigs. 2, 4L and 6 of the drawings and be received when desired in an elongated depression between the adjacent edges of the parallel members forming one lamination of the protecting end members. The circular body head illustrated in the preferred form permits of a tipping of the roll in any direction when on end, while the elongated body head member permits of a tipping of the roll in two directions when on end.
Having thus described my invention,what I claim is: V l
1. A member for 'protecting the end of paper rolled on a core, comprising a head of a diameter substantially equal to the roll over theend of which it is removably positioned, said head provided in its center with an opening and on one surface with a depression communicating with said opening, a body member for removably positioning within said opening to project into the end of said core, and a head on said body member adapted to project'beyond the outer face of its cooperating protecting end member. I v
2.. A' protecting member for detachably positioning over the end of a paper roll wound on a core, comprising acentrally apertured protecting head member of a diameter substantially equal to that of theend of the paper roll, and provided on one; surface with a depression communicating withers 5 said aperture, a headed body member for removably positioning within the roll supporting core and extending through said central aperture with the headed endthere w of received in said'depression, whereby lat:
era'l movement of the protecting head relatively to the end of the rollto expose the edge thereof is prevented. V
3. In combination with a paper roll wound on an open endedcore, a protecting wrap- 5,
per inclosing the roll and extending over the end thereof, an end protecting'member .po sitioned on the end of the paper roll intermediate'of the paper roll and the protecting wrapper, said enc protecting member being g of a diameter substantially equal to that of the paper roll on the end of which it is removably positionechsaicl member provided with a central aperture for registering with the opening in said core, a headedbody 5 member loosely extended through'said aperture and into said core whereby lateral movement offthe-protecting head relatively to the end of the roll to expose the edge thereof is prevented without attaching the 99 end protector on to the roll, said end protectin member and said headed body member being retained in position on the end of said paper roll by said protecting wrapper.
4:. In combination with a paperroll wound 5' on an open endedcore,a protectingwr'apper inclosing the roll and extending over the end thereof, an end protect-ing member positioned on the end of the paper roll between the end of the paper roll and the protecting 100 wrapper, said endprotecting member being of a diameter substantially the same as that of the paper roll on the end of which it is removably positioned, said member pro;
- vided with a central aperture for register- 195 ing with the opening in said core, a body member extending through said opening and into said core and a head carriedlby said body and adapted to contact with the outer" face of said protecting memberysaidend 1 10 protecting member and said headedbody member being retained in position .en the end of the paper roll by said protecting wrapper. r
