Abstract

The invention relates to a tear-open lid made of sheet metal, which has a central cover mirror and within which a breakout field, and a gripping tab made of sheet metal, which is pivotable about an at least approximately perpendicular to the lid mirror pivot axis and on one side of the pivot axis a Öffnerabschnitt and on the opposite side the pivot axis has a gripping portion. The gripping portion is shaped so that it is pivotable after opening the Ausbrechfeldes over an opening produced thereby and can close the opening tight. The gripping tab forming the gripping portion has openings and on an underside of the gripping portion facing the lid is provided an elastomeric seal which is connected by positive engagement with the gripping portion and extends through the apertures.

Description

  • The invention relates to a reclosable Aufreißdeckel for beverage cans or similar containers. Moreover, the invention relates to a beverage can with such a tear-open lid, a grip tab for such a tear-open lid and a method for producing a corresponding grip tab.
  • Tear-off lids typically have a central lid mirror inside which is disposed a break-away panel defined, for example, by a line of weakness that can be broken to open the lid so that the break-out panel will effectively release an opening, such as a drinking opening. To open the Ausbrechfeldes a gripping tab is typically provided, which is pivotally connected to the lid, as a rule, for example, connected by means of a formed from the lid mirror rivet. Such a grip tab typically has a gripping portion and an opening portion. The grip tab is shaped so that the opener section presses on the breakout field by lifting the gripping section and breaks a line of weakness defining the breakout field. Such Aufreißdeckel are well known.
  • In addition, there are concepts in which a resealing of the opening defined by the breakout field is to take place in that the gripping portion of the grip tab is pivoted or rotated over the opening and then pressed onto or into the opening so that it is closed again as a result. The pivoting or rotation takes place about a pivot or rotation axis, which extends at least approximately perpendicular to the lid mirror, at least in the original unused state of the Ausbrechdeckels. Such a concept is for example in WO 2004/056667 A1 described.
  • The invention has for its object to improve a corresponding Aufreißdeckel.
  • According to the invention, a tear-open lid made of sheet metal is proposed, which has a central lid mirror and within which a break-off field, and a tab made of sheet metal, which is pivotable about an at least approximately perpendicular to the lid mirror pivot axis and on one side of the pivot axis a Öffnerabschnitt and on the opposite Side of the pivot axis has a gripping portion. The gripping portion is shaped so as to be rotatable upon opening the breakout field via an opening formed therethrough and to close the opening tightly. The gripping tab forming the gripping portion has openings and on an underside of the gripping portion facing the lid is provided an elastomeric seal which is connected by positive engagement with the gripping portion and extends through the apertures.
  • The elastomeric seal is preferably part of a one-piece elastomeric body which extends both on the underside of the gripping section facing the lid mirror and forms the elastomer seal there, as well as on an upper side of the gripping section facing away from the lid mirror.
  • The fact that the elastomeric seal or the elastomeric body extends through the openings in the sheet forming the gripping portion, the elastomeric seal is reliably connected by positive engagement with the gripping portion and can neither be lost nor slip, regardless of whether the elastomeric seal in addition to the otherwise Gripping portion is connected, for example by adhesion. This means that in order to produce a suitable gripping tab, no bonding agent or other means requiring adhesion between the elastomeric seal and the sheet of the gripping portion is required to reliably connect the elastomeric seal to the gripping portion; Rather, the elastomeric seal is already defined defined connected to the gripping portion that the elastomeric body forming the elastomeric seal extends on both sides of the grip tab (bottom and top) and through the openings in the sheet of the handle tab. Such an elastomeric body can be produced by injection molding by injection molding.
  • The fact that the elastomeric body and thus the elastomeric seal is mechanically connected by positive engagement with the gripping portion, no great consideration for other properties (in addition to the mechanical properties) such as adhesion properties, etc. taken in the selection of the elastomer. Rather, the elastomer can be selected entirely according to the mechanical requirements. Also, the seal geometry can be designed completely free.
  • In addition, such elastomeric seal in conjunction with such a gripping portion is inexpensive to manufacture, because the apertures for the elastomeric body can be made in one step with other breakthroughs of the handle tab such as the central openings for the rivet. Also, the injection molding of the elastomer body requires no more effort than the injection molding of another form of seal wherein it is in the elastomeric body according to the invention it is not necessary to take any preparatory, liability improving measures.
  • The apertures are preferably arranged along a contour of the gripping portion, which corresponds approximately to an outer contour of an opening to be produced by opening the stripping field, that is to say the outer contour of the later drinking opening. The breakthroughs are therefore where the elastomeric seal is claimed to be the most heavily used in use.
  • Preferably, between 2 and 24 apertures are provided along this contour, wherein a number between 4 and 12 or 4 and 8 apertures is preferred. With 2 breakthroughs can already achieve a defined positioning of the elastomeric seal with respect to the gripping portion, which does not allow rotation, for example, the elastomeric seal. A larger number of breakthroughs may possibly counteract a deformation of the elastomeric seal.
  • The apertures are preferably at least approximately circular and have a diameter of 2mm or less. Alternatively, the openings may be formed by slots which are opened by the injection pressure during injection molding of the elastomer body.
  • The elastomeric seal preferably forms a closed surface on the underside of the gripping portion, the closed surface being configured to completely cover an opening to be created by opening the breakout field when the gripping portion closes this opening. In this way, a closed elastomer surface, which completely covers the drinking opening in the closed state of the lid. The single contact surface between the gripping portion acting as a closure and the drinking opening is thus provided between the edge of the drinking opening and the elastomeric seal. It is advantageous if the elastomeric seal has a sealing bead there - ie along the outer contour of the opening to be created by opening the breakout field.
  • The elastomeric body preferably extends on the side facing away from the lid mirror outside of the gripping portion over a plurality of openings. This causes that the elastomeric body can not be detached from the gripping portion without the elastomeric body is destroyed.
  • Preferably, the elastomeric body forms on the side facing away from the lid mirror outside of the gripping portion a recognizable for the user character, e.g. a graphic symbol. Thus, it is unnecessary to emboss a possibly desired symbol in the gripping portion forming sheet. On such a pre-step can thus be dispensed with.
  • The grip tab is preferably pivotally connected via a rivet formed from the cover mirror and rotatably connected thereto. Such a connection between grip tab and lid mirror is basically known, but at the same time has a gripping tab whose gripping portion acts as a closure for the drinking opening and is of particular importance and in particular must permit a corresponding rotation.
  • The tear-open lid and the grip tab are preferably made of aluminum sheet. This material has proven to be the most suitable for the production of lid and handle.
  • According to a further aspect of the invention, a beverage can with a can body and a Aufreißdeckel is proposed, wherein the Aufreißdeckel is fully sealed to the can body and a Aufreißdeckel is of the type described herein. The connection between the tear-open lid and the can body is preferably effected by a double fold and hermetically sealed.
  • According to a further aspect of the invention, a pull tab made of sheet metal is proposed for a pull-tab of the type described here. This gripping tab has a gripping portion, which is designed to close a drinking opening in a tear-open and having an elastomeric seal, which is part of a one-piece elastomeric body which extends through openings of the gripping portion and as a result is positively connected to the gripping portion.
  • Preferably, such a grip tab is produced by inserting a fully formed sheet metal part forming the grip tab into an injection mold and molding a preferably thermoplastic elastomer onto the sheet metal part in such a way that an integral elastomeric body penetrating through the sheet metal part forms.
  • The invention will now be explained in more detail using an exemplary embodiment with reference to the figures. From the figures shows:
  • 1 : a two-piece soda can with a can body and a lid;
  • 2 a tear-open lid according to the invention;
  • 3 : A plan view of a grip tab for a tear-open lid according to the invention;
  • 4 a bottom view of a grip tab for a tear-open lid according to the invention;
  • 5 a partial section through the gripping tab and the molded elastomer body;
  • 6 an alternative embodiment of a grip tab for a tear-open lid according to the invention; and
  • 7 A further alternative embodiment of a grip tab for a tear-open lid according to the invention.
  • 1 shows a soda can 10 with a can body 12 and a lid 14 , which has a double fold tight with the can body 12 connected is. can body 12 and lid 14 each consist of sheet metal. The can body can be made of aluminum or tinplate while the lid 14 is preferably formed of aluminum sheet.
  • As 2 can be seen, the lid shows 14 a standard lid mirror 20 within, within which a breakout field 22 through a line of weakness 24 is defined. About a rivet 26 is a grip tab 28 with the lid mirror 20 of the lid 14 connected.
  • The grip tab 28 has a gripping portion 30 and a breaker section 32 between which there is a rivet opening 34 for the rivet 26 of the lid 14 located. The grip tab 28 is formed in a conventional manner from a piece of aluminum sheet. To the grip tab 28 injected is an elastomeric body 36 standing on the bottom of the gripping section 30 the pull tab 28 an elastomeric seal 38 forms. The elastomer body 36 extends through breakthroughs 40 in which the gripping portion 30 forming sheet metal of the pull tab 28 through and forms on the top of the gripping portion 30 a one-piece closed and circumferential elastomer bead 42 , The elastomer body 36 is in one piece and by spraying with the sheet of the handle latch 28 connected.
  • For making the grip tab 28 becomes the finished shaped sheet metal of the grip tab 28 placed in a corresponding injection mold and then the elastomeric body 36 molded.
  • In particular 5 it can be seen, the elastomeric body extends 36 through the breakthroughs 40 in the sheet metal of the gripping section 30 through, leaving the elastomeric seal 38 on the underside of the gripping section 30 and the elastomer bead 42 on the top of the gripping section 30 are integrally connected to each other and the elastomeric body 36 no longer from the sheet metal of the grip tab 28 can solve.
  • Adhesive forces between the elastomeric body 36 in the sheet metal of the grip tab 28 are not required, so that no adhesion promoter for the connection of the elastomer body 36 with the sheet metal of the grip tab 28 required are.
  • Rather, the connection between the elastomeric body 36 and the handle of the tin plate 28 purely mechanically and by positive engagement effected by the elastomeric body 36 through the breakthroughs 40 in the metal plate of the grip tab 28 extends through.
  • Like that 3 and 4 it can be seen in the illustrated embodiment, a total of six openings 40 provided, which are arranged along a contour, at least approximately the outer contour of the Ausbrechfeldes 22 correspond, which in turn through the line of weakness 24 is defined. Instead of a total of six breakthroughs only at least two breakthroughs, but also up to 24 Breakthroughs to be provided. 6 shows an embodiment of a grip tab 28 ' with a total of 24 breakthroughs 40 ' ,
  • The arrangement of the breakthroughs 40 along the outer contour of the breakout field 22 is advantageous because the elastomeric seal 38 along the outer contour of the breakout field 22 in the reclosed state of the lid 14 at the edge of by breaking the Ausbrechfeldes 22 produced drinking opening should fit tightly. For this purpose, that of the elastomeric body 36 formed elastomeric seal 38 also a sealing bead 44 on, extending along the outer contour of the breakout field 22 extends through and also along the sealing bead 44 arranged breakthroughs 40 reliably held in place.
  • How the particular 4 can be seen forms the elastomeric seal 38 a closed surface covering the sealing bead 44 includes and within of the sealing bead 44 enclosed area is completely closed. This causes one after breaking the breakout field 22 resulting drinking opening in the reclosed state of the lid 14 completely from the elastomeric seal 38 is covered.
  • Alternatively, instead of a completely closed elastomeric seal 38 even just a sealing bead 44 ' along the edge of the drinking opening (ie along the outer contour of the breakout field 22 ) be provided. Such an alternative sealing bead 44 ' would then not only have a the edge of the drinking opening associated sealing surface, but a second sealing surface, the bottom 46 of the gripping section 30 the pull tab 28 facing is. A corresponding embodiment is in 7 displayed.
