This invention relates to dispensing cartons and more particularly to cartons of the type containing rolls of paper such as wax paper which dispense the paper in web form, which paper may be torn from the dispensed web in pieces of desired lengths against a cutting edge secured to the carton.

Prior to the instant invention, wax paper dis pensing cartons have been made of' cardboard blanks folded into the shape of a rectangular parallelepiped in which the structure comprises a tray for receiving the roll of wax paper and a top portion, which top portion includes a front flap.

In some prior boxes the web is dispensed between the front flap which is disposed inwardly of the tray and the front of the tray. As the web is dispensed the tendency is to pull the roll entirely out of the tray causing the roll to fall on the floor which, of course, would be unsanitary, and

it is necessary to hold the top in place with one hand while the web is pulled with the other hand. Further, the roll may fall out of the box if the box is dropped inadvertently.

In other prior constructions, the top portion comprises a fold line intermediate the front and back of the top portion, which fold line extends from one small side of the carton to the other small side and the rear portion of the top back of the fold line is fastened to the small sides or ends of the carton in such a manner that when the top is opened it provides an opening which is smaller than the diameter of the roll to be dispensed. Such prior constructions involve a weakened top and after continued folding of the top the tendency is to tear that portion of the top which is attached to the sides which, when torn, results in a failure of the box to function in the manner desired.

Still another prior construction involves the use of cylindrical bearings secured to the inner faces of the small end walls of the carton or tray which bearings extend within the core of the roll to be dispensed. Such cylindrical bearings are difiicult to incorporate in a wax paper box dispenser and the resulting construction is expensive to manufacture. Further, in constructions of this type the wax paper roll can not be loaded into the box after the box is assembled.

It is an object of the instant invention to provide a relatively simple box construction which may be readily manufactured, conveniently used and from which the roll can not be readily displaced accidentally such as when the box is dropped or when it is inverted.

It is another object of the invention to provide 18 Claims. (Cl. 206-58) a wax paper dispenser which will dispense paper smoothly and conveniently from a roll.

It is a further object of the instant invention to teach a method of folding a wax paper carton from a blank and loading same with a roll of wax paper.

It is still a further object of the instant invention to provide a novel wax paper carton dispenser blank from which the carton may be made by folding same.

Other objects and the nature and advantages of the instant invention will be apparent from the following description taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, wherein:

Figure 1 is a view in perspective of a carton in accordance with the instant invention;

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary view similar to Fig. 1 with the top portion in open position;

Fig. 3 is a plan view of blank from which the carton of Fig. l is made;

Fig. 4 is a longitudinal vertical section of the carton shown in Fig. l with parts broken away and parts in elevation;

Fig. 5 is a transverse vertical section with parts shown in elevation of the carton shown in Fig. 1;

Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. 5 with the top portion in open position;

Fig. 7 is a view similar to Fig. 4 with the carton inverted and the top portion in open position; and

Fig. 8 is a view similar to Fig. 6 with the carton inverted. 1

Referring to the drawings, the blank l0, see Fig, 3, comprises a front section II, a bottom section l2, a back section l3, a top section l4, and a front flap [5. The sides [6 of the carton, see Figs. 1 and 2, are made up of the rectangular tabs I! which project from the front section II, the triangular tabs it! which extend from the bottom section l2 and the rectangular tabs l9 which extend from the back section I3. Extending from the rectangular tabs 19 are the triangular spindle bearings 20 as shown in Fig. 3 on the carton blank I0.

A finger grip openin in the carton may extend into the top section I4 and the front flap l5 which opening may be temporarily closed by the piece 2| which is held to the top section M by a space between the perforations as shown, and the portion of the piece 2| which extends within the flap l5 may be completely severed therefrom. The cutter edge element 22 may be of metal secured to the top. 3| of the front section II.

The score line 23 provides for convenient fold- 8 ing of the front section II and bottom section I2 50 that the front section II and the bottom section I2 may be arranged in planes at right angles to each other. The score line 24 between the bottom section I2 and the back section I3 provides for convenient folding of the sections so that they may be arranged in planes at right angles to each other. The score line 25 between the top section I 4 and the back section I3 provides a convenient hinge between the top and the back. The score line 26 provides a convenient hinge between the top section I4 and the front flap I5. The score lines 21 provide a convenient hinge between the spindle bearings 20 and the tabs I9. The score lines 28 provide a convenient fold line between the tabs I9 and the back section I3. The scores lines 29 provide a convenient fold line between the triangular tabs I8 and the bottom section I2. The score lines 30 provide a convenient fold line between the rectangular tabs I! and the front section II.

In the complete assembly the tabs II form the outer lamina. of each of the sides IS, the tabs I8 form the intermediate lamina of each of the sides I6, and the tabs I9 form the inner lamina of each of the sides I6. The tabs I'I, I8 and I 9 in the assembly may be suitably fastened together with adhesive or by the use of staples or the like and it is obvious that when the tabs I1, I8 and I9 are laminated as shown in Figs. 4 and '7, for example, a tray-like structure as shown in Fig, 2 will result with the top section I4 formed integral with the back I3 with a hinge line at 25 as shown in Fig. 2. The spindle bearings 20 which extend from the top of the tabs I9 when the back is in assembled position are folded downwardly and the apexes thereof extend within the core 32 of the wax paper roll 33 as shown in Figs. 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8. As shown in these figures, the parts of the spindle bearings 20 closest to the apexes may be bent slightly toward each other.

The roll of wax paper 33 is adapted to be loaded within the dispensing carton either through the top opening or through the end. When the box is to be loaded through the top, the box is assembled as described and the roll inserted through the top opening into the position shown in Figs. 2, 4, 5 and 6 and the spindle bearings 20 will automatically take the position shown in these figures.

When the box is to be loaded through the end, the blank shown in Fig. 3 is first folded along score lines 23, 24, 25 and 26 and the flap I5 is then secured to the front section I I either on the inside of the front section II or on the outside as shown in Fig. 5 by glueing or by the use of a conventional tongue and slit arrangement. The roll 33 is then inserted through one of the open ends or sides. Then the spindle bearings 20 are folded along score lines 21 as already described above, and the tabs I1, I8 and I9 are folded along score lines 28, 29 and 30 and the side I6 assembled by lamination as already described above to complete the assembly.

The user may open the box as shown in Fig. 2, remove the piece 2| and theninsert the flap I5 behind the started web as shown in Fig. l, The web may then be pulled out to the desired length and torn across the cutter edge 22. Thereafter, the web may again be started by inserting a finger through the opening formed by the removal of the piece 2| and pulling a short length of web upwardly so as to expose same. As lengths of web are pulled from the roll, the roll revolves about the spindle bearings 20 smoothly and the dispensing operation is facilitated without concern regarding the possibility of the roll being pulled entirely out of the box as the spindle bearings 20 hold the roll within the box. Even when the box is inverted with the top I 4 open the roll will not fall out of the box as shown in Figs. '7 and 8 and, accordingly, the user need have no concern about the roll falling on the floor and becoming unsanitary.

It will be obvious to those skilled in the art that various changes may be made without departing from the spirit of the invention and therefore the invention is not limited; to what is shown in the drawings and described in the specification but only as indicated in the appended claims.
