United States Patent PAPERBOARD VJRAPPER HAVING AN UPSTANDING HANDLE Homer W. Forrer, Atlanta, Ga, assignor, by mesne assignments, to Mead-Atlanta Paper Company, a corporation of Ohio Application February 20, 1957, Serial No. 641,374

9 Claims. (Cl. 2436-65) This invention relates to carriers for cans and more particularly to a wrapper-type form of paperboard carrier having an improved downwardly folding handle structure initially secured to the top surface of the paperboard carrier and being easily accessible upon subsequent downward folding thereof.

The handle structure of the present invention is arranged with laterally extending tab portions; the handle structure being initially secured in nestedrelation by the engagement of the tab portions, but upon theinitial raising of the handle structure the tabs are disengaged and do not return to engaged relation upon a subsequent downward folding of the handle .structure thereby facilitating access to the handle structure for any subsequent raising.

In many cases, when cans .having end edges or rims are arranged in paperboard carriers of the wrapper type having no partition members therein between the cans, the end edges of one row of cans tend to ride on .the top surface of the other row of cansand thereby present an uneven surface between adjacent rows of cans. This results in an uneven top surface on the paperboard carrier and when additional carriers loaded with cans are stacked on top of the paperboard carrier, the stack is not aligned due to this uneven top surface formed on the carriers, and the stacking of carriers is thereby rendered difiicult.

According to the present invention, .an even, top :surface on wrapper type paperboard carriers is provided even when the end edges of one row of cans ride on the top surface of the end edges of an adjacent rowof cans. This is made possible by the use of a downwardly-folding handle structurearranged medially of the toppanel and adapted to be folded downwardly on the top side of-the carrier-adjacent the lower row of cans. The handle structure is of a double ply .and compensates in .folded position for the unevenness formed bythe raised row ofcans. Thus, the stacking of loaded carriers on one another is facilitated by the present invention Also, the handle structure has aligned hand hold apertures extendingtherethroughthat are formed by cut out flaps folded downwardly and secured to each surface of the top panel on each side of the'handle structure. This is a considerable improvement .over the type of carrier in which only a single fiap was secured -.to onesideofa handle structure, as the present invention allows 'the weight to be-uniforrnly distributed tothetop panel-and thereby provides a strengthening for the-top panel.

These and other features or" the present invention are described in further detail below in connection with the accompanying drawings, in which:

fig. 1 is a perspective view of the paperboard carrier embodying the present invention and showing :the upstanding handle structure thereon;

Fig. 2 is an end view of the carrier shown in Fig. I loaded with cans with the end edges of-one row of cans riding'on the top surface of the end edges'of an adjacent ice row of cans thereby presenting an uneven surface between adjacent rows of cans;

Fig. 3 is a stack of three loaded paperboard carriers embodying the present invention and showing an even top surface thereon;

Fig. 4 is a bottom plan view of the blank from which the carrier in Fig. l is formed and showing the glue application for the first folding step in stippling;

Fig. 5 is a bottom plan view of the blank shown in Fig. 4.after thefirst folding step in which the edge portions .of the blank are folded inwardly and the handle panelsare aligned in face-to-face contact;

Fig. 6 is a top plan view ofthe blank shown in Fig. 1 with the glue application for the first folding step being shown in stippling;

Fig. 7 is a top plan view of the blank shown in Fig. 6 after the first folding step; and

Fig. 8 is atop plan view of a modified blank used in forming a carrier adapted for carrying a load of-twelve cans.

Referring now in detail to the drawings, the illustrated paperboard carrier embodying the present invention, as indicatedtgenerally by the numeral ill, comprises a top wall panel 12, a pair of side wall panels 14 and 16 foldably hinged at opposite edges of top wall panel 12, and a pair of bottom wall lap panels 18 and 2t? foldably hinged at the respective bottom edges of the side wall panels 14, 16 and proportioned to-overlap at their extending edge portions to form a rectangularfour-sided wrapper It enclosing at least two rows of cans C and having open ends as shown inFigs. 1-3.

The paperboard carrier is further arranged according to the present invention with an integral handle-structure 22 foldably hinged to the top wall panel 12 for disposition in-either a fiat position at which it is depressed against the top wall .panel 12, or extended to an erect position for carryingas illustrated-inFig. l.

The top wallpanel 12 is formedfrom a pair of corn ponent half panels 24, 25 proportioned to meet substantially midway of the reach-of top wall panel 12.

Central panels 21,23 are r'oldablyhinged to each other and to the component half panels 24, .25, respectively, and are :slit transversely to define a pair of handle panels 26, 27 .and sideretaining portions 23, .29. Handle structure 22 comprises handle panels 26, 27 .foldably connected to .each other at one side thereofand foldably'connected at the opposite .sides. to one of theconiponent halt panels .24, 25. Side retaining portions 28, 29 are arranged adjacent the ends .of handle structure 22 and are each foldably connected to both component half'panels 24, 25 atopposite sides. The side retaining portions 23, 29 are each intermediately foldable to define side flaps 3t 31 and 32, 33, respectively; the side flaps 3%, and 32, 33 beingsecured in face-to-face relation and being folded to overlie component half panel 2 in an extent equal to that of the handle structure 22.

Handle panels 26, 27 .are secured in face-to-face relation and are formed with securing 'fiaps v34, 35, respectively, providing hand hold apertures. Flap 35 is re cured by-a suitable glue application to the bottom e of half panel '25 on one side of handle structure 2?; d flap .34 isrsecured by a suitableglue application e top face of half :panel 24 on the other side of handle structure 22. The arrangement of flaps 34, 35 oneither side of handle structure 22 allows the weight of the loaded carrier to be equally distributed between half panels'24, 25 that form the top'wall panel 12 and thus results in' a strengthened carrier.

The handle structure 22 is formed with tabs 36 extending from-each side of handle panel 26; the tabs 35 being arranged substantially medially of 'the end edges of hanpanel 26. The outer side flaps 31, 33 are'arranged in covering relation to notchesAtl and handle structure 22 is initially'secu'red in'fiat relationto top wall, panel 12 bythe disposition of tabs 36 in notches 40; tabs 36b'eing secured in notches 413 by the outer side -fia'ps' 31, 33

arranged thereoveri" Upon the initial, raising of handle structure 22 from nested relation with top wall panel 12,

the tabs 36 are disengaged from notches 40 and upon any subsequent downward folding of handle structure 22, tabs 36 will engage the outer'face of side flaps 31, 33 which will prevent handle structure 22 fronivreturning to'securing relation with side retaining portions 28, 29. thereby facilitating access to handle structure 22 for subsequent raising thereof. It should be noted that the engagement of tabs 36' with the outer face of side flaps 31, 33 does not prevent the handle structure 22 from returning to nesting-relation with top panel 12, 'but'it does prevent the securing thereof. t

The tabs 36 by which the handle structure is disposed in this manner to obtain the above-noted advantages, and

by which the handle structure is made readily accessible a for easy raising to a carrying position, may be lifted from their initial position in the carton structure as originally formed, either by hand or automatically, during or after wrapping of a package group of cans in the carrier, as disclosed in copending application Serial No. 648,042, filed March 25, 1957.

Whe n two rows of cans having end edge portions are arranged within paperboard carrier 10, the end edge portions of one row of cans normally tend to ride on the top surfaceof the end edge portions of the adjacent row of cans thereby providing an uneven surface between the adjacent rows of cans. This results in an uneven top surface being formed on the paperboard carrier, and

thus hinders the stacking of additional loaded carriers thereon since the stack will be unaligned vertically. By

a tear tab 44 extends from the extending free edge of depressible tab 42; tear tab 44 having perforations ex tending from the free corners of depressible tab 42.

When handle structure 22 is arranged in flat folded relation on top wall panel 12, depressible tab 42 is covered and protected by the handle structure 22. Upon the raising of handle structure 22, depressible tab 42 is exposed so that upon inward pressure being exerted on depressible tab 42, the edge oftear tab 44 is accessible,

whereby an upward pressure exerted on tear tab 44 so that they can be gripped to draw the wrapper tightly about the cans C and hold the lap panels. 18, 20 in overlapping relation for securing locking tabs 48 in the manner disclosed in the above mentioned copending application Serial No. 593,604;

The blank for the paperboard carrier may be formed,

according to the present invention, with edge flaps 54 arranged for doubling at the blank edges adjacent positioning slots 56 provided along the, foldably hinged edges of bottom wall lap panels 18', 20 and side wall panels i4, 16 in the'manner disclosed in'c'opending application Serial No. 602,114, filed August 6, 1956. a q

The first step in forming the paperboard carrier-from the blank disclosed in Fig. 4 of the drawings consists in folding the end flaps 54inwardly along the edges of'the adjacent panels and in folding the handle panels. 26, 27 along the hinge line formed therebetween, thereby dis posing handle panels 26, .27 in face-to-face relationto form handle structure'22. The folding of handle panels 26, 27 also results inthe folding of side flaps 30, 31 and 32, 33, respectively, in face-to-face relation along hinge lines aligned with the hinge. line between handle.

Inner' side flaps 30, 32 .are secured'to panels 26, 27. the top surface of half panel 24 by a suitable. glue application, as indicated by stippling in Fig. 1. During the first folding step the tabs 36 are secured in notches 40'as the outer side flaps 31, 33 are arranged in covering relation to tabs 36, as shown in Fig. 5 of the drawings; v

Figs. 6 and 7 also show the first folding step in forming the paperboard carrier 10 from the blank, but the blank in these figures is shown in atop plan view whereas the blank in Figs. 4 and 5 is shown in a bottom plan view. The flaps 34, 35 provided in handle structure 22 to provide hand hold apertures and to evenly distribute the weight along the top wall panel 12, are secured on either'side of handle structure 22 in this first folding step as mentioned previously. Flap 35 is arranged on the bottom surface of half panel 25 and is secured thereto by a suitable glue application; flap v35 being shown in position after the first folding stepin Fig. 7. Flap 34 is inserted through the han d hold aperture provided by flap 35 and is secured to the top surface of half panel 24 by a suitable glue application, as indicated by stippling' in Fig. 4. It is thus observed that any weight transmitted to handle structure 22 will be distributed equally between half'panel s 24, 25 as a result of flaps 34, 35 being dle structure is arranged with tabs'62 and flaps 64,

will result in the tearing thereof along the perforations therein, allowing access to'the cans C within the paperboard carrier.

, Paperboard carrier 10 is adapted'to be foldedi'and' secured about a load of cans C during a packaging operation, the bottom wall lap panels 18,20 being formed .with aligned retaining and locking tabs 46 andi48, re-

spectively, to secure the wrapper. forming the paperboard carrier in themanner disclosed in copending application Serial No. "459,918, filed October 4, 1954, now Patent No. 2,786,572, granted March 26, 1957. In this connection, reference should also be made to copending application'Serial No. 593,604, filed June 25,1956, now Patent No.. 2,809,486, for further details of the packaging operation and of'the manner in which aligned re! tainingand locking tabs 46 and 48 are interlocked to secure the wrapper. The bottom wall lap panels 1,8,;20 ma b 1 r, d w ppi apertures 59, 52

66 in the same manner as the carrier shown in Figs. l-7, and the remaining elements'shown in Fig. 8 are similar to corresponding elements shown by the embodiment of Figs. -1'7 except in dimensions. The carrier formed from the blank shown in Figure 8'is particularly useful 'for heavy can loads.
