25 Claims. (Cl. 225-48) Matter enclosed in heavy brackets appears in the original patent but forms no part of this reissue specification; matter printed in italics indicates the additions made by reissue.

This invention relates to improvements in paper dispensing cartons.

The main objects of this invention are:

First, to provide a dispensing carton which is well adapted for packaging and dispensing of a roll of filmlike sheet material and for packaging and dispensing paper of fibrous type and one which may be formed of relatively light stock and at the same time is strong and durable for packaging and for handling.

Second, to provide a dispensing carton for rolled stock which is eiiectively sealed for storage, shipment and merchandizing and which may be quickly and easily opened for dispensing of the packaged stock therefrom and which is form retaining and rigid in such dispensing use and handling.

Third, to provide a dispensing carton from which the materials may be readily withdrawn in the desired amount and the material clamped relative to the blade so that it is cut or severed on a straight line and is not likely to be othewise torn or fractured.

Fourth, to provide a dispensing carton having these advantages which may be economically produced and in which there is a relatively small amount of stock waste in the formation thereof.

Objects relating to details and economies of the invention will appear from the description to follow. The invention is defined and pointed out in the claims.

A preferred embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a closed carton embodying our invention.

FIG. 2 is a somewhat enlarged transverse sectional view through the carton with a roll of conventionally illustrated stock therein illustrating the carton and the contents as originally packaged.

FIG. 7 is an enlarged transverse sectional view of the collapsed carton.

FIG. 8 is an end elevational view of a desirable form of carton embodying our invention with the walls erected and the carton open to deliver the edge of the stock.

FIG. 9 is a perspective view illustrating the manner in which the carton may be grasped for withdrawing the stock therefrom, the removable sealing portion or section of one wall of the carton having been removed.

FIG. it) is a perspective view in cross section further illustrating how the carton may be manipulated in the withdrawing of stock therefrom and the severing of the withdrawn section of stock.

Re. 25,875 Reissued Oct. 12, 1965 FIG. ll is an enlarged fragmentary view illustrating details of securing of the cutter blade to the carton blank so that it constitutes a fixed and reinforcing element thereof.

FIG. 12 is an enlarged fragmentary view on a line corresponding to line 1212 of FIG. 1 illustrating certain structural details.

FIG. 13 is a fragmentary perspective view illustrating initial steps in the removal of the tear strip and the relationship thereof and other parts to the cutter blade.

FIG. 14 is a plan view of the blank in its extended position with the cutter blade mounted thereon with adhesive and adhesive repellent conventionally illustrated.

FIG. 15 is a fragmentary end elevational view of a modified form of our invention.

It should be understood that paper" is used in its broad sense and that the carton is adapted for use for packaging and dispensing film stock or film-like material as distinguished from what is commonly designated Paper.

The embodiment of our invention illustrated is of hexagonal cross section and is formed integrally of paperboard stock out and scored to provide the outer walls 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 which are hingedly connected by the scores 7 conventionally indicated. a

The cutter blade 8 is secured to the wall 1 so that its edge 9 which is desirably serrated as is indicated projects slightly from the wall 1 when the carton is in erected position and is fixedly secured as by means of the integral lugs 10 struck inwardly therefrom, see FIG. 11. This not only provides an effective means for securing the blade but the blade constitutes a reinforcing mem her for the wall 1 which is subjected to some stress when the paper is being removed from the roll of stock within the container.

The inner wall 11 is hingedly connected to the edge of the outer wall 1 by suitable hinging scores and disposed on the edge of the outer wall 6 and is substantially the same dimensions as the outer wall.

A second support member 12 is hingedly connected at 13 to the inner edge of the wall member 11 and terminates at its inner edge in the reverse fold 14, see FIG. 2, which provides a smooth guiding edge for the stock as it is unwound from the roll in withdrawing the same from the container.

The removable portion 17 of the outer wall 6 is, in the embodiment illustrated, provided with transverse slits 40 disposed at the ends of the spaced adhesive sections 18, the adhesive being conventionally shown in the drawing. In the embodiment of our invention illustrated the removable strip or section 17 which is detachably secured by the adhesive is provided with transverse slits 40 which serve the double purpose of adding to the flexibility of the tear strip as will be pointed out and also to prevent tearing or stripping of portions of the removable strip which might disfigure. Further, the portions of the wall 11 between the spaced adhesive supports is provided with adhesive resisting material 41, conventionally illustrated in FIG. 14. Additionally, as shown in FIG. 14, the inner wall 11 is provided with scores therein surrounding the adhesive sections 18.

To further facilitate removal of the strip 17 and minimize tearing, the severing line 15 includes spaced slits 42 transversely aligned with the adhesive sections 18. These longitudinal and transverse slits 40 and 42 of the removable sections not only serve to minimize disfiguring fractures but they are of substantial advantage in that they facilitate grasping of the tear strip aljacent its adhered portion.

In practice one end of the tear strip is grasped. the operator grasping the carton with the thumb engaging the outer wall section 6, or the carton may be positioned on a shelf or table or other support and the operator merely presses on the section of the wall 6 and with his other hand grasps the removable section 17 and pulls or detaches it from the inner wall 11. When the carton is erected and before removing the section 17, as illustrated in FIGS. 1 and 2, the outer edge of the section 17 constitutes a guard for the edge 9 of the cutter blade 8.

The wall member 1 is provided with hexagonal end wall members 19 at its ends and the wall member 4 which is opposed to wall member 1 when the carton is erected is provided with end members 22. The other side wall members 2, 3 and are provided with end flaps 20, 21 and 23 respectively and the inner wall members 11 and 12 are provided with end flaps 24 and 25 respectively.

The end members 19 are hexagonal shape and are dimensioned to provide complete end closures. The outer end members 22, in the embodiment illustrated, are dimensioned to approximately one-half the size of the end members 19 and have folding scores 26 aligned with the folding scores of the wall members 3 and 4.

The means for securing the flaps 20, 24 and 25 to the end wall member 19 are not illustrated but it will be understood that they are fixedly connected thereto as by adhesive when the carton is erected. The same applies to the connection for the end flaps 21 and 23 to the end wall members 22.

The score line 7 connecting the walls 2 and 3, illustrated conventionally, is desirably of somewhat greater depth than the other score lines and constitutes hinges for the two sections.

The side wall 5 is provided with tongues 28 resulting from the slits 27 which engage the notches 29 in the outer end wall members 22 when the walls are in erected position and these tongues also overlap the corresponding edges of the inner wall to support the walls as the carton is being handled.

A roll of the paper 34 is conventionally illustrated at 35 and is provided with a tubular support core 36 on which the paper is wound which is rather common practice in rolls of paper. The roll of paper enclosed in the carton is etfectively sealed and when it is desired to use the same, the portion of the outer wall 6 is grasped at the inner side of the perforations 15 and the portion 17 grasped at one end and pulled to break its adhesive connection 18 to the inner wall member 11. The carton may then be opened, as indicated in FIG. 8, and the end of the roll of paper drawn outwardly over the inner wall member 11 and flap or extension 12, as is illustrated in FIG. 10.

Slits 16 facilitate the tearing or severing and result in tabs at the ends for convenient grasping.

The score line 31 connecting the tabs 25 to the inner wall members 12 are provided with slits 32 which provide supporting tabs 33 on the paper guide and support member 12. These coact to prevent collapsing and the tabs 33 further coact with the opening provided by the notches 29 to serve as frictional locks or keepers to retain the cover in closed position.

It will be noted that the complete carton is relatively compact and of such size that it may be conveniently grasped and its hexagonal walls resist clamping stress. In use, the user grasps the carton with the thumb of one hand in engagement with the remaining section of the outer wall 6. The stock is pulled out to the desired degree and the wall 6 is clamped down upon the underlying inner wall so that further withdrawal of stock is prevented and the stock may be severed on a straight line, as is indicated in FIG. 10.

The stock is effectively retained between the inner wall members 11 and 12 in the overlapping outer walls 5 and 6 and after a section has been removed there is an exposed edge portion of paper which may be conveniently grasped for withdrawing.

It will be understood that score lines, which are conventionally illustrated, are such as to provide hinging connections for the wall members and the end member flaps. The adhesive and adhesive resisting coating are also conventionally illustrated.

One of the advantages of this embodiment of our in vention illustrated is that there is relatively little waste stock and the cartons may be conveniently packed for shipment and storage and they are not easily collapsed in grasping or handling, or packaging.

In the embodiment shown in FIG. 15, the tear strip portion 17 of the wall 6 has an infolded portion 17A which provides a double wall thickness that acts as a guard for the cutting edge of the blade 8.

We have illustrated and described our invention in a desirable embodiment thereof. We have not attempted to illustrate or describe other embodiments or adaptations as it is believed this disclosure will enable those skilled in the art to embody or adapt our invention in a highly practical form thereof.
