A cup-type beverage vending machine including a product selection button corresponding to a product displayed on a product sample display unit is known. In this case, the product sample display unit has a light-transmissive product display plate that is detachably attached, and the product display plate is illuminated by the light source installed in the product display unit to improve the display effect at night. Has been.

[0003]

By the way, in the cup type beverage vending machine, as shown in FIG. 4, between the cup dispenser 2 inside the vending machine body 1 and the product sample display section 3, A sub door 5 to which a light source 4 such as a fluorescent lamp is attached is provided on one side, and the sub door 5 is rotatably attached to the product sample display unit 3 by a hinge 7, and inside the product sample display unit 3 provided on the outer door 6. Is illuminating. Further, in order to prevent illuminance shortage and non-uniformity in the product sample display unit 3 and to efficiently reflect the light of the light source 4 to save power, the sub-door 5 is made of a material having a high reflectivity, a coating, etc. It is general to use a reflection plate that has been subjected to material selection and surface treatment for the purpose of improvement.

However, the cup-type beverage vending machine has a problem that the number of parts is increased because it requires a dedicated sub-door 5 for mounting the light source 4 for illuminating the inside of the product sample display section 3. . Further, since the sub-door 5 uses an expensive reflector for improving the reflectance, there is a problem that not only the number of parts is increased but also the cost is increased.

The present invention has been made in view of the above problems, and an object of the present invention is to reduce the number of parts and to reduce the cost without requiring a dedicated part for opening and closing the back surface of the product sample display section. It is to provide a cup type beverage vending machine capable of achieving the above.

[0006]

To achieve the above object, the present invention provides, in claim 1, a vending machine body having a front opening, an outer door for opening and closing the front surface of the vending machine body, and an outer door. And a cup dispenser for accommodating the cup, and the light-transmissive product display provided in the product sample display is illuminated by a light source arranged on the back side of the product sample display. In the cup type beverage vending machine described above, the cup dispenser is arranged so as to open and close the back surface of the product sample display section by one side surface thereof, and the light source is attached to the one side surface thereof.

According to the second aspect, the cup dispenser is rotatably provided on the back side of the product sample display section.

Further, in claim 3, the cup dispenser is installed in the main body of the vending machine such that one side surface thereof is located at a position corresponding to the product sample display portion.

As a result, since the product sample display section is opened and closed by one side of the cup dispenser,
No special parts are required to open and close the product sample display.

According to the present invention, one side surface of the cup dispenser to which the light source is attached covers at least the back surface of the commodity sample display section.

Thus, in addition to the effects of the first, second or third aspect, the back surface of the commodity sample display portion is surely covered by the cup dispenser during illumination.

Further, in the present invention, a light shielding member is provided at a position corresponding to the periphery of the back surface of the commodity sample display section on one side surface of the cup dispenser to which the light source is attached.

As a result, the first, second, third, or fourth aspect is provided.
In addition to the above action, one side of the cup dispenser to which the light source is attached seals the inside of the product sample display portion, and the light is completely shielded.

According to the sixth aspect, one side surface of the cup dispenser to which the light source is attached has high reflectivity.

Thus, in addition to the effect of the first, second, third, fourth, or fifth aspect, it is not necessary to separately provide a reflector on one side surface of the cup dispenser.

[0016]

1 and 2 show an embodiment of the present invention. FIG. 1 is a front view of a cup type beverage vending machine, and FIG. 2 is a cup type beverage automatic vending machine with an outer door opened. It is the whole machine perspective view.

This cup-type beverage vending machine is provided with a vending machine body 10 and an outer door 11 for opening and closing the front of the vending machine body 10. Inside the vending machine body 10, a cup for selling beverages is provided. A cup dispenser 12 is provided to supply the. A product sample display unit 14 having a light-transmitting product display plate 13 is provided on the front surface of the outer door 11, and the back surface of the product sample display unit 14 is open to the inside of the vending machine body 10.

The cup dispenser 12 has a well-known structure in which the cups housed inside are discharged downward one by one,
One side surface thereof forms a light source mounting surface 12a having substantially the same size and shape as the rear surface side of the product sample display section 12.
The surface of the light source mounting surface 12a is painted with high reflectance, and a light source 15 such as a fluorescent lamp is mounted in the center thereof. Further, the cup dispenser 12 is attached to the back surface of the product sample display portion 14 by a hinge 16 so as to be openable and closable, and when the cup dispenser 12 is closed,
The light source mounting surface 12a of the cup dispenser 12 and the product sample display portion 14 are sealed by a light shielding packing 17. That is, when the cup dispenser 12 is rotated forward and the product sample display unit 14 is closed, the inside of the product sample display unit 14 is sealed by the cup dispenser 12, and the product display plate 13 is closed by the light source 15 attached to the cup dispenser 12. Illuminated. Further, replacement and maintenance of the light source 15 are performed by rotating the cup dispenser 12 rearward and opening the product sample display unit 14.
