Description

The present invention relates to a new hinged lid container, which finds particular use as a container for elongated smoking articles such as cigarettes.

A known method of packaging elongated smoking articles and other consumer goods in containers formed from folded laminated preforms. Oblong smoking articles, such as cigarettes and cigars, are usually sold in packs with a hinge (hinged) lid, which includes a box in which smoking articles are placed and a lid connected to the box along a hinge line extending across the back wall of the container. Such packs are usually made of laminated cardboard blanks made in one piece. When using the pack, the lid is rotated relative to the hinge line to open the pack and thereby gain access to the smoking articles contained in the box.

On the outer surface of the packaging of consumer goods are usually applied graphic images and text to communicate to the consumer information. However, standard hinged-lid packs of cigarettes are relatively small and have a limited apparent external surface area to accommodate such information. Manufacturers are aware of attempts to increase the amount of information communicated to consumers on packs of cigarettes with a hinged lid by providing additional surfaces on which information can be printed. This was achieved, for example, by introducing additional panels or coupons into the container. Such panels and coupons can be made integrally with the container or, alternatively, can be introduced separately into the container.

Packs with a hinged lid for smoking articles were also proposed, having an increased internal surface area for printing indications and graphic images. For example, international patent application AO-L-03/078274 discloses a pack for smoking articles with a hinged lid, in which an increased internal surface area is provided by using the internal frame and, alternatively or in addition, by using the inwardly facing surface of the front wall covers.

It would be desirable to provide a hinged-lid container for smoking articles that would have a larger internal surface area for containing information for a consumer than typical hinged-lid cigarette packs without substantially increasing the overall size of the container or the amount of material required to make it. In addition, it would be desirable to provide a hinged lid container for smoking articles having a large continuous space for placing consumer information on the lid of the container. It would also be desirable to provide such a hinged lid container without compromising the strength or stiffness of the container.

It would be additionally desirable to create a new hinged lid container having a large internal surface area, which could be made with minimal modification or without modification of existing packaging equipment.

According to the present invention, a container is provided comprising a front wall, a rear wall and opposing side walls extending between them, where the container comprises a box and a lid pivotally connected to the box along a hinge line extending across the rear wall of the container, where each side wall of the container has an angle φ between the front edge of the side wall of the cover and its lower edge is greater than the acute angle θ formed between the rear edge of the side wall and a straight line extending between the first point (point A), where The articulated line meets the side wall, and the second point (point B), where the upper edge of the front wall of the box meets the side wall. When the container is closed, the free edges of the walls of the lid are joined with the free edges of the box so that the junction line extending between the first point A and the second point B contains a first linear section extending between the front edge and the opposite rear edge of the side wall, and the second linear section extending along the front edge of the side wall of the container, from the second point B to the point where the first linear portion meets the front wall of the container.

The containers according to the invention find particular use as packs for smoking articles, for example cigarettes.

Preferably, the angle φ is at least 10 ° greater than the angle θ, more preferably at least 15 ° greater than the angle θ. Preferably, the angle φ is from 45 to 90 °, more preferably from 60 to 90 °.

Preferably, the angle θ is less than 60 °, more preferably it is from 35 to 60 °, and particularly preferably from 35 to 45 °.

The terms front, back, top, bottom, side and other terms used to describe the relative positions of the components of the containers according to the invention refer to a container located in an upright position. When the container is vertically open, the smoking articles contained in the box can be removed through an opening in the upper end of the container.

- 1 016656

By the term hinge line is meant a line with respect to which the lid can be rotated to open the container. The hinge line may be, for example, a fold line or a line of notches in a panel forming the rear wall of the container. Alternatively, the hinge line may be a fold line or a cut line in a piece of material that connects the back wall of the lid to the back wall of the box. Such a piece of material can be, for example, a label that is permanently attached or attached with the possibility of its removal to the rear wall of the lid and the rear wall of the box. Preferably, the hinge line is located along the rear or side wall of the container at a level that is lower than the upper edge of the container.

The term linear is used here to describe a substantially straight line.

Typically, in standard packs of cigarettes with a hinged lid, a straight line extending between point A and point B, as defined above, is aligned with a straight junction line in the side wall of the container along which the lower edges of the side walls of the lid are adjacent to the upper edges of the side walls of the box. The junction line is thus also located at an angle θ to the rear edge of the side wall of the container. In a typical hinged-lid cigarette case, the angle θ is approximately 60 °.

Throughout this description, the term junction line is used to describe the line along which the free edges of the walls of the lid of the container according to the present invention are aligned with the free edges of the walls of the box when the container is closed.

In a typical hinged-lid cigarette case, the angle θ and the angle φ are substantially the same, both being approximately 60 °. In contrast, in containers according to the invention, the angle φ is greater than the angle θ, preferably by at least 10 °. Differences in these angles are achieved by constructing a junction line containing the first and second linear sections between point A and point B, where the first and second linear sections extend at different angles to each other. The junction line may contain one or more additional linear sections, as described below. For example, in some embodiments of the present invention, the junction line further comprises a third linear portion extending from the first point A along the rear edge of the side wall of the container.

Preferably, the angle θ in the containers of the present invention is less than 60 °, and thus less than the same angle in a standard hinged lid package. By reducing the angle θ in the containers according to the invention to values less than 60 °, it is possible to obtain containers with a lid containing a longer front wall than is usually done in cigarette packs with a hinged lid. The length of the front wall means the height of the wall in the vertical direction when the container is located vertically and is in the closed position.

The outer surface area of the containers of the invention does not have to be larger than the outer surface area of a typical hinged cigarette pack. However, the surface area of the front wall of the lid of the containers according to the invention is larger than the surface area of a typical hinged cigarette pack. Thus, when the lid is open, a large internal surface area becomes visible to the consumer. This internal surface area includes, for example, the surface of the inner frame (if any); the surface of any other package of smoking articles inside the container and the inner surface of the lid. Additional consumer information can be provided on this additional internal surface area, which becomes visible when the lid is open. In addition, the surface area of the front surface of the lid is larger than the same area as a standard pack with a hinged lid. Thus, the lid provides a greater continuous space for consumer information.

Preferably, in containers according to the present invention, the ratio of the length of the front wall of the lid to the length of the front wall of the box is greater than 35:65, where the indicated ratio of these lengths is maintained in a typical hinged lid cigarette pack.

Although it may be desirable to maximize the angle θ to increase the apparent internal surface area of the containers of the invention, it is also preferred that the angle φ is as large as possible. This is desirable because the larger the angle φ, the stronger and more durable the lower part of the side walls of the lid. In addition, the larger the angle φ, the stiffer the lower section of the lid.

It is particularly preferred that the angle α formed between the joint line extending across the side wall of the container and the trailing edge of the side wall of the container box is also maximized. By increasing the angle α, the increased strength and durability described above with reference to the angle φ are also achieved with respect to the upper part of the side walls of the box. Depending on the shape of the junction line between point A and point B, the angle α may be the same as the angle φ, or may differ from it.

- 2 016656

The present invention has created containers in which the shape of the junction line between point A and point B can be varied so that the angle θ can be kept relatively small, while the angles φ and α can be the same or larger than the corresponding angles in known packets with hinged cover. The strength and stiffness of the containers according to the invention need not, therefore, be reduced to obtain a larger internal surface area.

If desired, the angle at which the first linear portion meets the second linear portion may be beveled or rounded.

Preferably, each side wall of the container is formed of an inner wall and an outer wall superimposed on top. A joint line extending along the inner wall between point A and point B may be the same as the joint line extending along the outer wall, or may be different from it. Preferably, the joint line extending along the inner wall between point A and point B has the same shape as the joint line extending along the outer wall, but that it is offset relative to it in the vertical direction. The vertical displacement is mainly used to strengthen the rear wall of the box and the front wall of the lid.

The junction line between the lower edge of the front wall of the lid and the upper edge of the front wall of the box is preferably a straight, essentially horizontal line. The front wall of the box may include a cutout at its upper edge so that the inner packaging located behind it can be seen. Alternatively or in addition to this, the front wall of the lid may comprise a cutout at its lower edge. Where the cut is made, the lower edge of the lid does not normally fit to the upper edge of the box and the junction line is thus interrupted. Providing a cutout can facilitate facilitating the opening of the lid by the consumer.

Preferably, the container further comprises an inner frame mounted inside the box, where the inner frame protrudes above the upper edges of at least the front wall of the container box. The inner frame is thus visible to the consumer when the lid is open. An indication may be printed on the front wall of the inner frame, which may be the same or different from the indication printed on the front wall of the box. Alternatively or in addition to this, the front wall of the inner frame can be cut in a special way, for example, to reflect the branding of a consumer product.

Preferably, the front wall of the inner frame was provided with a cutout at its upper edge. This provides more convenient access to consumer goods inside the container without significantly reducing the surface area of the front wall of the inner frame.

Alternatively or in addition to the inner frame, the smoking articles inside the container may be wrapped with printed information visible above the upper edge of the front wall of the box and the front wall of the inner frame (if any) when the container is open.

Advantageously, it is possible to manufacture containers according to the invention using existing equipment, only slightly modified so that a different length of the front face of the lid is taken into account. Only one fold that needs to be done elsewhere, in comparison with a standard pack with a hinged lid, is that fold that is performed along the lower edge of the front face of the lid.

The containers according to the invention can be in the form of a substantially rectangular parallelepiped with right angles along the longitudinal edges and right angles along the transverse edges. Alternatively, the box or lid or both the box and the lid of the containers according to the invention may contain one or more rounded longitudinal edges, rounded transverse edges, beveled longitudinal edges or beveled transverse edges, or a combination thereof. For example, by making cuts in a known manner in the laminated preform from which the box and the lid of the container are formed, a pack for cigarettes or other smoking articles according to the invention with rounded corners can be made.

The container may be formed from any suitable materials, including (but not limited to) cardboard, paperboard, plastic, metal, or combinations thereof. Preferably, the container is formed from one folded laminated preform, more preferably from a folded laminated cardboard preform. Preferably, the cardboard has a mass of 1 m 2 (surface density) in the range of from about 100 to about 350 g / m 2 .

The containers of the invention find particular use as packs for elongated smoking articles, for example cigarettes, cigars or thin cigarettes. It should be understood that by appropriate selection of sizes, containers according to the invention can be designed for other rows of cigarettes of conventional sizes, long, very long, thin or very thin cigarettes.

- 3 016656

By appropriately selecting sizes, containers according to the invention can also be designed to contain different total quantities of smoking articles or different types of placement of smoking articles. For example, containers can also be designed according to the invention by appropriate selection of sizes to contain a total number of smoking articles of 10, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 or 25 smoking articles. They can be placed in various ways, depending on the total number of smoking articles. For example, smoking articles can be arranged in a row of 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10 pieces; in two rows of 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 pieces; in two rows of 5-6, 6-7, 7-8 pieces; in three rows of 5-5-5, 5-6-5, 6-5-6, 5-6-7, 6-7-6, 7-5-7, 7-6-7, 7-7- 7, 8-9-8 pieces; in four rows of 4, 5 or 6 pieces.

The length, width and depth of the containers according to the invention can be such that in the closed position as a result, the overall dimensions of the container can be similar to the dimensions of a typical disposable pack with a hinged lid containing 20 cigarettes.

On the outer surfaces of the containers according to the invention can be applied the logo of the manufacturer or brand, trademarks, slogans and other information and indications for the consumer by printing, embossing, engraving or other design methods.

If the box of the container according to the present invention contains a set of cigarettes or other elongated smoking articles, the smoking articles are preferably wrapped in an inner cushioning material, for example metal foil or metallized paper.

After filling, the containers according to the invention can be wrapped in a shrinkable material or can be otherwise wrapped in an outer wrapper made of a transparent polymer film, for example polyethylene or polypropylene, in the usual way. If the containers according to the invention are wrapped in an outer wrapper, the outer wrapper may comprise a tear tape. The tear tape is preferably arranged around the container below the lower edge of the front wall of the lid so that after removing the tear tape, the lid can be freely rotated relative to the hinge line. Alternatively, the tear tape may be located around the container in the direction of its length.

The invention is further described by way of example only, with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which:

FIG. 1 and 2 are front perspective views of containers with an open hinged lid according to the first and second embodiments of the present invention, respectively;

FIG. 1a and 2a are schematic partial side views of the containers of FIG. 1 and 2, where the angles θ, φ, and α are shown. The junction line between points A and B is shown as a thick line in FIG. 1a and 2a; FIG. 1a and 2a are not shown to scale.

The hinged lid container 30 shown in FIG. 1 is a rectangular box and comprises a bottom box 32 and a top cover 34 pivotally connected to the bottom box 32 along an articulated line extending substantially horizontally along the back wall of the container. The level of the hinge line is shown in FIG. 2 point A.

Box 32 includes a front wall 36, a left side wall 38, a right side wall, a back wall, and a bottom wall. The side walls of the box protrude above its front wall so that the upper free edges of the side walls are offset from the upper free edge of the front wall.

The cover 34 includes a front wall 36a, a left side wall 38a, a right side wall, a rear wall and an upper wall. The front wall 36a of the cover 34 extends beyond its side walls 38a so that the lower edge of the front wall 36a is offset from the lower edges of the side walls 38a. The offset corresponds to the offset between the upper free edges of the front wall 36 and the side walls 38 of the box 32.

When the container 30 is closed, the free edges of the walls of the lid 34 are joined with the free edges of the corresponding walls of the box 32 along the junction line. In the closed position, the walls of the lid 34 thus form a continuation of the corresponding walls of the box 32, which defines the walls of the container 30.

As shown in FIG. 2 and 2a, the junction line between point A and point B consists of two connected linear sections. As defined above, point A represents the place where the hinge line meets the side wall of the container 30, and point B represents the place where the upper edge of the front wall 36 of the box 32 meets the side wall. The first portion 42 extends from point A along the side wall of the container to its front edge at an angle of approximately 60 ° to the rear edge of the side wall. This angle corresponds to the angle α. The second portion 44 extends from the end of the first portion 42 down along the front edge of the side wall of the container to point B. The angle θ in the container 10 is approximately 45 °, while the angle φ is approximately 60 °. The angle φ is thus essentially the same as the angle α. The junction line between point A and point B is shown by the bold line in FIG. 2a.

- 4 016656

The ratio of the length of the front wall 36a of the lid 34 to the length of the front wall 36 of the box 32 is approximately 40:60. The front wall 38a of the lid 34 is longer in relation to the total length of the container 30 than the front wall of the lid of a typical hinged cigarette pack.

Box 32 and lid 34 are formed together from one cardboard blank. Each of the opposite side walls of the box 32 and the lid 34 is formed of an inner panel and an outer panel attached to the inner panel. The inner panel of each side wall has substantially the same dimensions and shape as the corresponding outer panel. As can be seen when considering FIG. 1, the panels are directly superimposed on each other by their free edges and substantially aligned so that the inner wall is barely visible.

The inner cardboard frame 20 is installed in the box 32 near its inner walls. The inner frame 20 is formed from a cardboard blank separate from the box 32 and the cover 34 and comprises a front wall, a left side wall and a right side wall. The front wall contains a cutout at its upper edge, designed to make it easier to remove products inside the container. The walls of the inner frame 20 protrude above the upper edges of the front wall 36 and the side walls 38 of the box into the space covered by the lid 34 when the container 30 is closed. Due to adhesion due to frictional forces between the inner frame 20 and the inner walls of the lid 34, it is guaranteed to ensure that the lid 34 remains in the closed position until a force is applied to open the container by turning the lid 34 relative to the hinge line. Grip due to frictional forces can be enhanced by providing holding means on the inner frame 20, which mate with the inner walls of the cover 34.

The hinged lid container 50 shown in FIG. 2 has a structure similar to that shown in FIG. 1 and described above. However, unlike the container 30 shown in FIG. 1, a junction line extending between points A and B contains three linear sections arranged in the form of the letter Ζ, as described below. In addition, the inner and outer panels of the side walls of the lid 54 and the box 52 have different length ratios.

As shown in FIG. 2a, the junction line between point A and point B consists of three connected linear sections. The first portion 72 extends from a point located a short distance below point A along the side wall of the container to its front edge at an angle of approximately 60 ° to the rear edge of the side wall. This angle corresponds to the angle α. The second section 74 extends from the end of the first section 72 down along the front edge of the side wall of the container to point B. The third section 76 extends from the opposite end of the first section 72 up along the rear edge of the side wall of the container to point A. Three linear sections in this case form an Ζ-shaped junction line. The angle θ in the container 30 is less than 45 °, while the angle φ is approximately 60 °. The angle φ is thus substantially the same as the angle α. The junction line between point A and point B is shown by the bold line in FIG. 2a.

As can be seen in FIG. 2, the inner panels 60 of the side walls 58 of the box 52 protrude above its outer panels 62 so that the upper free edges of the inner panel 60 and the outer panel 62 are offset from each other. The upper free edge of the inner panel 60 is parallel to the upper free edge of the outer panel 62 and meets the hinge line at the rear edge of the side wall of the container. By means of a part of the inner panel 60 protruding above the outer panel 62, a portion of the rear wall of the box is reinforced between the upper free edge of the outer panel 62 and the hinge line.

Conversely, the outer panels of the side walls 58a of the cover 54 protrude below its inner panels so that the lower free edges of the inner panel and the outer panel are offset from each other. The lower free edges of the inner panel are shown in FIG. 2 dashed line. The offset in the lid 54 corresponds to the offset in the box 52 so that when the container 50 is closed, the lower edges of the panels of each side wall 58a of the lid are joined to the upper edges of the corresponding panels 60, 62 of the side walls 58 of the box 52.
