6 Claims.

The present invention relates to the banding of slink-type sausages and other articles ingcontinuzous1y.-connected series, and is concerned particularly with the construction of the packaging structure involved.

.In the new package-as in theone disclosed in my. Patent No. 2;37 9,934-the sausages-0r other rarticlesLare banded, eitherindividually or in. comit pact units of" two .or more, and are. continuously -.connecte.d .together'side-bye'side' in-a straight row by zintervening Webs, which webs are of greater extentthan the distance between the sausages rand holdthelatter close together when the row is laid outin a flat condition while permitting -them;to be easily "spread apart when therow "is flexedwherebyto facilitatetaccess to the webs .foraefiecting separation ofithe. row at any one of thewebs.

.One ofathe'objectsof the invention isto pro- -Videanimproved package ofthe type described .in which the banding is :effected easily, neatly and very. inexpensively.

.Anotherobject ofrthe inventionis to provide such a-packagein which the banding is effected .bymeans of a single strip of .paperior'other flexeible material.

Still1another objectof the invention is'ito .provide an improved method of ':forming :such -a package.

While the foregoing statements are :indicative :in=-a;;general way of the nature of the invention, other more specific objects andadvantages will tbeapparent to those .skilled'in the art upon a :full understanding of the construction'and man- :nerLQf formation of the new package.

Lone embodiment of the invention is presented .herein by way ofexemplification, but it will of 'i'COllISBIbG appreciated that'the invention is susceptible of incorporation in other forms com- .in equally within the scope of the appended :claims.

In the accompanying drawings:

Fig.1 isxa perspective view of a package constructed in accordance with the invention;

Fig. 2 is a plan view of the package;

Fig. 3 is a'longitudinal section through the :packagepwith the same arranged in a flat condition, taken on the line 3-3 of Fig.2;

Fig. 4 is a similar section through the package, with the same flexed to spread the sausages apart at thetwebs;

Fig. 5 is a transverse sectionthrough the-package, taken on theline'5- 5 ot-Fig. 2;

is a perspective view of the package, showing the same but partly completed; and

the package.

Fig. 7 is a fragmentary'plan view 'o'fza; section of the strip used in making the package.

.As'will be observed in the drawings, the new package is shown applied to a number of linktype .sausages l0. Whiletthepackageis one that possesses many. unique advantages as appliedito sausages, it will of course be appreciatedithatlthe package. is also' adaptable to "other articles.

The sausages in the package are arranged side-byside in arow, are individually banded by loops H formed from a narrow strip 12 :o'i flexible banding material, and I are continuously connected together by webs l3 formed iromithe same strip of banding material.

When the package is laid outin .aifiat conditi-on, as when resting in a box orwhen 'being displayed, the loops ll abouttthe sausages 3&16 positioned in substantial abutment witlreach other along the median plane of thepackage, as shown in Fig. 3, and the webs i3 which extend between :the loops aredisposed substantially-in tangential relation to the lower portions .oftthe loops more or less in the plane'lofthe bottomaof This arrangement orthe webs i3 permits the same to be relatively longzandi'yet hold the sausages rather closely together. ..-At

the same time it permitsthe 'sausages'to be spread apart rather widely .tO expose the webs l3, as shown in (Fig. 4,. thus enablingxanyxoneiiof the webs to be easilygraspedand torncrosswise. along perforations M- which may berprovided" to facilitate separationof the sausages. When the webs are torn crosswise the loops will remain intact aboutthe sausages, providing attractlve identifying bands won which trade-marks, ingredients or other data may be displayed.

In forming the-package thegstrip I2 is. looped about each of the sausages in succession, *as shown in Fig. 6, with the strip .preferablytucked partially in under each sausage: at bothsidest-of thesame. Before each sausage is placed in position on the strip |2ga tonguel5 iscutintthe strip, preferably in the center of,the latter, :and when the strip-is curled about the. sausage :to form the loop H the tongue l5.is disposed be- ,neath the sausage with the end [6 of, the tongue projecting beyond the sausage. The strip 12 after encircling the sausage is brought down flatly. against the, end it of the tonguaandthe web 13 is securedto the same, referably'bywa heat-sealing. operation, the strip liming-coated with a thermoplastic adhesive .for this purpose.

.Other forms of attachment might however, .be .used.

The strip lzybefore andafterbeingcurled other articles in pairs, as f" is preferably abruptly facilitate the formation single tongue I at the about each sausage creased at I1 and I 8 to of the loop. While a banded sausage, and the tongues at a time just prior to the positioning of each example, small, easily packed breakfast-type link sausages, and the following claims are therefore to be understood in referring to a sausage or article as designating a unit which single article or of two or I claim: 1. As a new article of manufacture, a packaging structure by mean of which a plurality of ma consist either of a more of the articles.

the article and is connected at its end with the strip at a point beyond the article.

2. As a new article of manufacture, a packaging structure by link-type sausages are individually banded and connected together side-by-side in a straight row, said structure being constructed approximate abutment with each other and with and the intervening web portio'ns'being located below the approximately abutting sides of the loop portions adjacent the lower face of the packaging structure and being connected to the spaced apart bottoms of the loop portions, said in a two-ply, side-by-side contacting relation over a substantial area in said web portions. 3. As a new article of manufacture, a packaging structure by means of which a plurality of link-type sausages are individually banded and connected together side-by-side in a straight row,

and connected together side- 1 mean of which a plurality of loop and web portions connected to the spaced apart bottoms of the loop portions, said web portions being of substantial tions being integrally formed from a single continuous strip of the paper material which has portions thereof overlapped and secured to one another in a two-ply, side-by-side contacting relation over a substantial area in said web portions.

4. As a new article ing structure by means of which a plurality of together side-by-side in a straight row, said structure being constructed of a single strip of pliant sheet material and consisting of a series of loop portions and a series of intervening web portions, the loop portions closely encircling the articles and being disposed in the flat condition of the packaging structure with their sides in which are overlapped on and secured to one an side-by-side relationship over crosswise when forcibly pulled apart without disrupting the loop portions.

5. As a new article of manufacture, a packaging structure by mean of which a plurality of cured to said tongues.

6. As a new article of manufacture, a packaging structure by means of which a plurality of portions of the strip, and including a plurality of individual band portions about the sausages and intervening readily severable web portions connecting said band portions.
