Description

Articulated lid container of the sliding action type

Technical field

The present invention relates to articulated lid containers of the sliding action type and, more particularly, to an articulated lid container that requires a sliding action to open an articulated lid.

Prior art

As packaging containers for containing articles, various types have been developed taking into account the properties of the articles to be contained. For example, when the articles to be contained are smoking articles such as cigarettes or filter cigarettes, articulated lid containers are very frequently used as such packaging containers.

An articulated lid container form has been proposed, for example, in Patent Document 1.

The conventional articulated lid container includes a box-shaped outer body that has an open end at the top thereof. The outer body contains an inner pack that includes a pack of cigarettes and an inner wrap that wraps around the deck.

A box-shaped lid is connected to a rear edge of the open end of the outer body by a hinge. The lid is pivotable around the hinge to open and close the open end.

Since this type of conventional articulated lid container has been used for many years, consumers are accustomed to its opening / closing mode. However, it cannot be said that the conventional articulated lid container has such an appeal that it encourages consumers to buy the container.

Accordingly, it has been proposed, for example in Patent Document 2, an articulated lid container of the type of sliding action that makes use of a sliding action to open and close the lid with a view to attracting the attention of consumers .

Summary of the invention

Problems to be solved by the invention

In the case of the articulated lid container of the conventional sliding action type, the consumer slides up the inner pack part while pushing, with his thumb or other finger, the front surface of the exposed inner pack part through a exit opening. Consequently, the consumer's thumb or finger can slip into the inner pack part, making it difficult to slide the inner pack part up. Also, if the number of contained smoking articles is small, the inner pack part deforms when it is pushed with the thumb or finger of the consumer, making it difficult for the consumer to slide up the inner pack part. In such a case, extra effort is required to extract a smoking article.

The present invention has been made to solve the above problems, and an object thereof is to provide an articulated lid container of the type of sliding action that is of simple structure, employing such an innovative opening / closing mode that stimulates motivation of consumer purchase and still allow an item contained in that container to be easily removed.

Means to solve the problems

To achieve the above object, an articulated lid container of the type of sliding action according to the present invention comprises: an outer body that has a rectangular parallelepipedic shape and that has an open end at the top thereof; and an inner case slidably accommodated in the outer body and having an articulated lid in an upper end portion thereof to open and close the inner case, wherein the outer body includes a front wall and an opening formed through the front part and which allows the inner case to be partially exposed therethrough, and the inner case includes a reinforcing member disposed within a front wall thereof that is exposed through the opening, the front wall also including a corrugated surface as defined in claim 1.

A consumer presses with his thumb or other finger the portion of the front wall of the inner case that is exposed through the opening of the outer body, and then moves the inner case up by sliding the inner case upward with his thumb or finger. As a result, the inner case protrudes from the upper open end of the outer body. Since the reinforcing member is disposed inside the front wall of the inner case, this inner case has an increased stiffness, thereby decreasing the deformation of the inner case. Consequently, even if the number of items contained in the package has become small, the inner case can slide satisfactorily upwards without a pull.

The articulated lid container of the type of sliding action of the present invention may further comprise coupling means for coupling the outer body and the inner case with each other, and, when the inner case slides upwardly relative to the outer body, the coupling means cause the articulated lid to open and also regulate a sliding amount of the inner case. Thus, with the container of the present invention, when the inner case is pushed up, the articulated lid gradually opens, and the inner case stops when it protrudes from the outer body by a predetermined length.

Specifically, the coupling means including: a strip disposed in the articulated lid, the strip having an upper end connected to a rear part of the lid articulated by an upper hinge that is located at a higher level than a lid hinge that allows that the articulated lid opens and closes, and a lower end portion that forms a backward turned piece that folds toward an inner surface of the outer body; and a contact piece disposed within the outer body, the contact piece extending from the open end towards the part turned back and capable of engaging with the part turned backwards.

When the inner case moves upwardly inside the outer body, the piece turned backward at the distal end of the strip becomes coupled with the contact piece of the outer body. Since the rear part of the articulated lid is pulled relatively down by the strip due to the coupling, the articulated lid gradually opens. When the inner case is further moved upwards, the articulated lid reaches a fully open position, in which the inner case is stopped and an additional upward movement is prevented. Thus, an article contained in the package can be easily removed and it is also possible to effectively prevent the inner case from falling out of the outer body. The contact piece interposes between the outer body and the inner case and thus is always in contact with the inner case. Consequently, the contact piece serves as resistance to the up and down or reciprocating movement of the inner case, thus preventing the inner case from protruding an undesirable extension from the outer body.

The front wall of the inner case has a rough region that is exposed through the opening to prevent the consumer's thumb or finger from slipping into the inner case.

Advantageous effects of the invention

In the articulated lid container of the type of sliding action of the present invention, when the inner case containing articles slides upwardly to protrude from the outer body, the articulated lid is opened in a manner interlocked with the sliding movement. Thus, the articulated lid package of the invention provides a unique and distinctive opening / closing mode compared to ordinary packages and, therefore, has such a strong appeal to consumers that it stimulates consumers' motivation to buy the package.

Way of carrying out the invention

Figure 1 illustrates a container 2 according to an embodiment of the invention.

The container 2 is a packaging container for containing smoking articles as a tobacco product, such as cigarettes or filtered cigarettes, and is generally in the form of a rectangular parallelepiped.

As illustrated in Figure 2, the container 2 comprises an inner case 6 having a lid 4, and an outer body 8 that slidably accommodates the inner case 6.

The inner case 6 includes a box body 12, as shown in Figure 3, which contains inner boxes

10.

The box body 12 has the shape of a box with its upper end portion obliquely cut and is large enough to contain two inner boxes 10 next to each other. Each inner pack 10 includes ten 95 mm long smoking articles wrapped in an inner wrap. The inner envelope comprises a sheet of paper and an aluminum film formed on a surface of the sheet of paper by vapor deposition. The aluminum film of the inner envelope not only serves to protect the mallet of smoking articles from moisture, but also prevents the dissipation of the aroma of the mallet of smoking articles, namely, of individual smoking articles. For the inner wrap, laminated paper can be used instead of metallic foil. In this case, the laminated paper has a shield layer formed on it to prevent the passage of moisture and aroma.

More specifically, the box body 12 includes a rectangular front wall 14, a rear wall 16 smaller in height than the front wall 14, a pair of side walls 18 and a rectangular bottom wall connected to the respective lower ends of the front walls , rear and side 14, 16 and 18, as clearly shown in Figures 3 and 4. Each side wall 18 has an inclined upper edge 18a to connect the upper end of the front wall 14 to the upper end of the rear wall 16. Consequently, the box body 12 has an inclined opening in its upper end portion.

The front wall 14 has a generally rectangular cut 20 formed in the center of an upper portion thereof. The cut 20 serves to open and widen the front part of the box body 12, thus making it easy to remove a smoking article. Also, a rectangular reinforcing plate that serves as a reinforcing member to reinforce the front wall 14 is attached to a portion of the inner surface of the front wall 14 located at a lower level than that of the cut 20.

The rear wall 16 has an upper end provided with a lid hinge 24. The cover hinge 24 extends between the rear ends of the upper edges 18a of the two side walls 18, 18 and connects the rear wall 16 and the cover 4 with each other.

As shown in FIGS. 2 to 4, the cover 4 includes a rear wall 26 connected to the cover hinge 24, an upper wall 28 and a pair of trapezoidal side walls 30. The cover 4 is oscillable around the hinge 24 of top. When the cover 4 is closed, the oblique lines of the side walls 30 of the cover 4, that is, the inclined lower edges 30a of the side walls 30, coincide with the aforementioned upper edges 18a of the respective side walls 18 of the body 12 cash.

The inner case 6 further includes a strip 34 disposed at the rear of the cover 4.

The strip 34 is a member similar to a tongue of generally rectangular shape. More specifically, as clearly shown in Figure 4, the strip 34 has an upper edge connected to the cover 4 by an upper hinge 32 which is located in the center of a boundary between the rear and upper walls 26 and 28 of the lid. 4. Also, the strip 34 has a backward turned part 36 at its lower end portion. The backward turned part 36 is formed by folding the lower end portion of the strip 34 outward in the direction of the thickness of the box body 12 so that it is directed upward, so that the backward turned part 36 can remain bent. Thus, as long as the inner case 6 is contained in the outer body 8, the backward turned part 36 of the strip 34 is held pressed against the inner surface of the outer body 8.

The strip 34 can be formed using part of the rear wall 26 of the cover 4 and part of the rear wall 16 of the

box body 12. Thus, as is evident from Figure 4, a U-shaped incision 22 is formed so that it extends from the rear wall 26 of the lid 4 beyond the lid hinge 24 to the rear wall 16 of the box body 12.

The outer surface of the inner case 6 has been formed as a corrugated surface 6a by die forming over its entire area. Specifically, the corrugated surface 6a has a large number of ridges that extend in the direction of the width of the inner case 6 and are spaced at regular intervals in the vertical direction or the height of the inner case 6.

The outer body 8 is a box in the form of a rectangular parallelepiped having an open end 38 at the top thereof, as shown in Figure 1. More specifically, as shown in Figure 3, the outer body 8 it includes a rectangular front wall 40, a rectangular rear wall 42 having the same dimensions as the front wall 40, a pair of side walls 44 and a rectangular bottom wall connected to the respective lower ends of the front, rear and side walls 40, 42 and 44. The front wall 40 has a generally rectangular opening 46 formed in the center thereof, and the inner case 6 accommodated in the outer body 8 is exposed through the opening 46 (see Figures 1 and 2).

Also, a contact piece 48 is disposed on a rear edge of the open end 38. More specifically, as clearly shown in Figure 3, the contact part 48 extends from the rear edge of the open end 38 towards the inside of the body exterior 8 along the rear wall 42 and folds along the rear edge to move inward in the direction of the thickness of the outer body 8 so that the contact piece 48 can remain bent. Thus, the contact piece 48 is pressed against the inner case 6 accommodated in the outer body 8. Therefore, when the inner case 6 in the outer body 8 slides in a direction towards the open end 38, the contact part 48 it comes to be coupled with the backward turned part 36 of the strip 34 of the inner case 6. Furthermore, as is obvious from Figure 3, the contact piece 48 has a generally rectangular cut 50 formed in the center of a lower end of the same. The width of the cut 50 is slightly greater than that of the backward turned part 36 of the strip 34. Accordingly, the contact part 48 can be reliably coupled with the backward turned part 36 of the inner case 6. In this way , the strip 34 and the contact piece 48 constitute coupling means.

The package 2 can be made using a blank 52 of inner case to form the inner case 6 and a blank 54 of outer body to form the outer body 8.

As illustrated in Figure 5, the inner case blank 52 has a front panel 56 constituting the front wall 14 of the box body 12, and a reinforcement panel 58 as the reinforcing plate is connected to a bottom of the front panel 56, as seen in the figure. Side panels 60, 60 to form the side walls 18 of the case body 12 are connected to the respective side edges of the front panel 56. In addition, a bottom panel 62, which constitutes the bottom wall of the case body 12, is connected to the end of the front panel 56 which is located opposite the reinforcement panel 58. A rear panel 64 to form part of the rear wall 16 of the box body 12 is connected to the end of the lower panel 62 which is located opposite the front panel 56.

Interior side flaps 66, 66, which must be associated with the respective side panels 60, are connected to the respective side edges of the rear panel 64. Likewise, a rear panel 68 to form part of the rear wall 26 of the cover 4 is connected to the end of the rear panel 64 which is located opposite the lower panel 62, with a line 70 of cover hinge to form the cover hinge 24 located between them. An upper panel 72, which constitutes a part of the upper wall 28 of the cover 4, is connected to the end of the rear panel 68 which is located opposite the rear panel 64. Side panels 74, 74 to form the side walls 30 of the cover 4 are connected to the respective side edges of the rear panel 68. In addition, inner upper flaps 76, 76, which must be superimposed on the upper panel 72, are connected to the ends of the respective side panels 74 that are located opposite the corresponding inner side flaps 66.

The blank 52 has a U-shaped incision 78 (incision 22) that extends from the rear panel 64 of the case body 12 to the rear panel 68 of the cover 4. The region surrounded by the incision 78 is a region of strip 63 to form the aforementioned strip 34. More specifically, the strip region 63 includes a cover back panel 68b located in a position corresponding to the rear wall 26 of the cover 4. The cover back panel 68b has one end upper connected to the upper panel 72, with a hinge line 80 to form the upper hinge 32 located between them. A case back panel 64b and a backward panel 64c to form the backward turn piece 36 of the strip 34, corresponding in position to the rear wall 16 of the box body 12, are successively connected to the end of the rear panel 68b of cover that is located opposite the upper panel 72.

An inner upper flap 82, which forms the remaining part of the upper wall 28 of the cover 4, and an inner rear flap 84, which forms the remaining part of the rear wall 26 of the cover 4, are successively connected to the end of the panel upper 72 which is located opposite the rear panel 68.

Likewise, a rear panel 86 to form the remaining part of the rear wall 16 of the box body 12 is connected to the end of the inner rear flap 84 which is located opposite the inner upper flap 82, with a hinge line 88 corresponding to the cover hinge 24 between them.

As illustrated in Figure 6, the outer body blank 54 has a front panel 90 constituting the front wall 40 of the outer body 8. Side panels 92, 92 to form the side walls 44 of the outer body 8 are connected to the respective side edges of the front panel 90.

A lower panel 94, which constitutes the lower wall of the outer body 8, is connected to the upper end of the front panel 90, as seen in the figure. A rear panel 96 to form the rear wall 42 of the outer body 8 is connected to the end of the lower panel 94 which is located opposite the front panel 90. Interior side flaps 98, 98, which must be associated with the respective side panels 92, are connected to the respective side edges of the rear panel 96. A contact panel 100 to form the contact part 48 of the outer body 8 is connected to the end of the rear panel 96 which is located opposite the lower panel 94.

In this embodiment, the blank 52 and 54 are made of a paper having a basis weight of 180 to 270 g / m2 and a thickness of 0.2 to 0.5 mm. Specifically, the blank 52 and 54 can be made of cardboard, Manila cardboard or the like. The blank 52 of the inner case is subjected to die forming to form a large number of ridges on a surface thereof that will constitute the outer surface of the inner case 6 such that the ridges extend in the direction of the width of the inner case 6, that is, in a direction perpendicular to the sliding direction of the inner case 6, and are spaced at regular intervals in the sliding direction.

The blanks 52 and 54 are folded individually along fold lines indicated by dotted and dashed lines in Figures 5 and 6 to form the inner case 6 and the outer body 8, respectively. Folding the blanks, the container 2 is obtained with the lid 4 closed as shown in Figure 1.

More specifically, the blank 52 is folded first to obtain the container 2. Firstly, the reinforcement panel 58 is folded and glued to the front panel 56. Next, the back-back panel 64c of the region of strip 63 folds down and also the back cover panel 68b folds along the hinge line 80 towards the outer surface of the blank 52, that is, towards the outside of the box body 12 to be formed, so that these panels can remain bent on the same side. Next, the side panels 74, 74, the inner upper flaps 76, 76 and the upper panel 72 are folded successively, and the inner upper flaps 76 are glued to the inner surface of the upper panel 72. In addition, the inner upper flap 82, the inner rear flap 84 and the rear panel 86 are successively folded on the respective inner surfaces of the upper and rear panels 72, 68 and 64 and glued thereon. Next, two inner boxes 10 are placed on the rear panels 64 and 68 with the rear panel 86 between them, and with the two inner boxes 10 positioned in this way, the inner side flaps 66, the bottom panel 62, the front panel 56 and the side panels 60 fold around the inner boxes 10 and glue together. Thus, the inner case 6 containing the inner packs 10 is obtained as an intermediate product.

Next, the blank 54 folds to obtain the outer body 8. First, the contact panel 100 folds down in the direction of the inner surface of the blank 54, namely, into the inside of the body exterior 8 to form. Next, the aforementioned product is placed on the rear panel 96 such that the rear panel 68 of the intermediate product is superimposed on the contact panel 100. With the intermediate product positioned in this way, the blank 54 is folded around the intermediate product and it is glued in the manner known in the art, thus forming the container 2 of Figure 1 in which the inner case 6 with the lid 4 is contained in the outer body 8.

The articulated lid package of the type of sliding action having smoking articles packaged therein is obtained in this way, and each package is then wrapped, for example, in a transparent film.

A consumer who has purchased container 2 first removes the wrap film. Next, the consumer presses with his thumb or other finger the front wall 14 of the inner case 6 exposed through the opening 46 in the front wall of the outer body 8, and slides up the inner case 6. When the inner case 6 it is pushed up in this way, the inner packs 10 contained in the inner case 6 protrude from the outer body 8 with the lid 4 open.

The movement of the container 2 will now be described in more detail with reference to Figures 7 to 10. First, the inner case 6 is fully accommodated in the outer body 8 with the lid 4 closed, as shown in the figure 7. When the inner case 6 moves upwardly inside the outer body 8, the backward turned part 36 of the inner case 6 becomes coupled with the contact piece 48 disposed within the outer body 8 (Figure 8). The inner case 6 moves further upward into the outer body 8, and since the contact piece 48 and the backward turned part 36 are coupled with each other, the cover 4 begins to open when the rear part of the the cover 4 relatively down the strip 34, so that the inner boxes 10 are exposed (figure 9). When the inner case 6 moves further upwards inside the

outer body 8, the cover 4 reaches a completely open position, in which the inner case 6 is stopped and it is prevented from moving upwards (figure 10). In fact, the coupling of the contact piece 48 with the backward turned part 36 causes the lid 4 to open and also regulates the amount of sliding of the inner case 6.

In this embodiment, the positional relationship between the contact piece 48 and the backward turned piece 36 and the length of the strip 34 are adjusted so that the sliding of the inner case 6 can be stopped in a position where the smoking articles they can be easily removed from the upper open end of the outer body 8 and also the cover 4 is completely open.

After the inner boxes 10 are thus exposed through the upper open end of the outer body 8, the consumer opens the inner box 10 and removes a smoking article. To put the inner packs 10 back into the outer body 8, the consumer presses with his thumb or finger the front wall 14 of the inner case 6 exposed through the opening 46 in the outer body 8 and slides down the inner case 6, so that the inner case 6 is withdrawn into the outer body 8. When the inner case 6 is removed, the contact piece 48 and the back turned part 36 become uncoupled from each other and the cover 4 closes Gradually while being guided by the open end 38 of the outer body 8. When the inner case 6 finally comes into contact with the lower wall of the outer body 8, the lid 4 closes completely, thus closing the container 2.

When a smoking article is removed again, the consumer only has to press the front wall of the inner case 6 with his thumb or finger through the opening 46 and slide the inner case 6 upwards in the same manner as described above. .

Thus, in the articulated lid container 2 of the type of sliding action of this embodiment, the lid 4 can be opened in a locked manner with the projection movement of the inner case 6 out of the outer body 8. Therefore, the container 2 Articulated lid provides an innovative opening / closing mode and can strongly attract consumers. Likewise, the outer surface of the inner case 6 is completely corrugated, and the corrugated surface serves to prevent the thumb or finger of the consumer from sliding on the inner case 6 when the inner case 6 slides upward, thus making it easier that the consumer slide up the inner case 6. Furthermore, since the reinforcing plate is attached to the inside of the front wall 14 of the box body 12, this box body 12 has an increased stiffness, thus effectively preventing deformation of the box body 12. Consequently, even if the number of the smoking articles contained has become small, the inner case 6 can slide satisfactorily up and down without a pull.

Also, according to this embodiment, by closing the lid 4 of the container 2, it is possible to prevent the decrease in the freshness of the smoking articles. In addition, the container 2 can conveniently be used as a tobacco case such that, once the package 2 is purchased, the consumer continues to use the container 2 by filling said container 2 with new inner packs 10.

The present invention is not limited only to the previous embodiment and can be modified in various ways, the scope of the invention being defined by the claims.

For example, in the previous embodiment, the outer surface of the inner case 6 is completely corrugated. Alternatively, only a surface region of the inner case 6 corresponding to at least the opening 46 of the outer body 8 can be corrugated. Also, in the previous embodiment, a large number of ridges is formed on the outer surface of the inner case 6. However , the anti-slip means are not limited to such ridges only, and rounded protuberances or rounded dimples can, for example, be distributed alternately over the entire surface or part of the surface of the inner case 6.

Also, in the previous embodiment, a rectangular plate corresponding to the front wall 14 of the case body 12 is fixed as the reinforcing member to the inside of the front wall 14. Alternatively, combined plate members to have a section U-shaped transverse can be arranged as a reinforcing member 102 inside the box body 12, as indicated by the dotted-dotted-striped lines in Figure 11, or combined plate members so that they have a cross-section in T-shape can be arranged as a reinforcing member 104 inside the box body 12, as indicated by the dotted-dotted lines in Figure 12. Indeed, a reinforcing member with any desired shape can be used from the moment it is that is capable of increasing the rigidity of the box body 12. In figures 11 and 12, thin lines indicating the corrugated surface 6a of the inner case 6 are omitted for simplicity.

In addition, the container of the previous embodiment is of the type in which two inner packs containing each smoking articles 95 mm long are contained. Alternatively, the package may contain a single inner box that includes 20 smoking articles with a length of 85 mm or around this value. Also, the articles to be contained are not limited to smoking articles, and the articulated lid package of the type of sliding action of the present invention can be used to contain other products, for example foods such as treats.
