Description

  The present invention relates to a gaming machine transport container for transporting a gaming machine such as a pachinko machine, an arrangement ball machine, or a sparrow ball machine in a completed or semi-finished state.

  Conventionally, a method has been proposed in which used gaming machines are stacked horizontally in a container without a partition and loaded into a truck (Patent Documents 1 and 2). There is also a proposal of a cart provided with a flat partition plate that is divided into two upper and lower stages (Patent Document 3).

  The containers proposed in Patent Documents 1 and 2 can also be used when shipping gaming machines as products, but the products may come into contact with each other and be damaged when loaded and unloaded, so they are stored in cardboard boxes. It was necessary to pay attention to the handling of the equipment, and there was a lot of trouble in storage and transportation, and the burden on the workers was also heavy. Also in Patent Document 3, a measure for preventing damage due to contact between gaming machines loaded on the same stage is necessary, and the problem that the burden on the operator is still large cannot be solved.

On the other hand, many proposals have been made of transport carts and pallets with partitions so as to avoid contact between these products (Patent Documents 4 to 12).

  Patent Documents 4 to 6 employ a method of storing gaming machines sideways. By the way, in the gaming machine production line, a front frame fitted with glass, a game board, etc. are assembled to the outer frame in a vertically placed state, and the gaming machine is completed. Therefore, when loading and unloading the gaming machine on the cart or the like, it is necessary to work down the gaming machine from the vertical direction to the horizontal direction or to stand from the horizontal direction to the vertical direction. For this reason, the carts of Patent Documents 4 to 6 have a problem that it takes time to load and unload gaming machines.

  Since Patent Document 7 employs a system in which gaming machines are stored vertically, there is no need to perform operations such as tilting the gaming machines sideways when loading and unloading with a production line. However, since Patent Document 7 is a method of storing a gaming machine from above, there is a problem that it requires an elevating device for taking in and out, and it takes time and effort.

  Patent Document 8 also adopts a method of storing gaming machines vertically, so there is no work such as tilting the gaming machine sideways when loading and unloading it with the production line, and the gaming machine can be loaded and unloaded with a horizontal slide. Can be executed. However, in the thing of patent document 8, there exists a problem that it can take out only from the side which put in the game machine. Further, in Patent Document 8, there is a problem that the number of gaming machines is small because gaming machines can be loaded only in one row and one stage.

  Since the first and second embodiments of Patent Document 9 are systems in which the gaming machine is stored in the horizontal direction, they have the same problems as Patent Documents 4 to 6. In addition, the third embodiment of Patent Document 9 is a system in which gaming machines are stored in a vertical orientation and can be stacked in two rows, but loading and unloading is from above. For this reason, it has the same problem as Patent Document 7.

  In Patent Document 10, a gaming machine can be taken in and out of the production line by a horizontal slide in a vertical orientation. However, gaming machines can only carry one row and one stage, and the loading capacity is limited. In addition, since Patent Document 10 does not consider truck transportation or the like, fixing in a state where a gaming machine is loaded is insufficient, and as such cannot be used for truck transportation or the like.

  Patent Documents 11 and 12 employ a vertical storage / horizontal slide loading / unloading system, which can load gaming machines in two rows and two tiers, and can load / unload gaming machines from either the left or right side of the carriage. In addition, the game machines that are housed with springs attached to the slide rails provided on the floor and ceiling are firmly held and fixed from the front and back, and a drop-prevention bar is attached to the side opening of the carriage to ensure that the Measures are also taken to prevent vibrations from gaming machines. In addition, a lever is also provided to collectively operate fixing / releasing of game machines by springs.

  However, in Patent Documents 11 and 12, there is a possibility of forgetting fixation by lever operation and transportation, or there is a possibility that the lever operation may be forgotten before the gaming machine is lowered and the front surface of the gaming machine frame may be damaged by the slide holding portion.

  Patent Documents 4 to 12 all employ a method of securely holding and fixing the upper, lower, and side portions of the gaming machine from the front and rear. For this reason, when loading and unloading gaming machines, first, the gaming machine must be firmly positioned in a gap between a guide rail such as a carriage or a holding jig, resulting in poor workability. In addition, there is a problem that if the size (depth dimension) of the gaming machine is changed, or if a gaming machine having a different depth dimension is loaded, these cannot be sufficiently handled.

  Therefore, the present application is not limited in the direction of loading and unloading in a container that transports or stores a completed or semi-finished game machine, can prevent vibration during transportation, and can forget the fixing operation. Provide a gaming machine transport container that can reduce the chance of injury due to forgetting the opening operation, has good workability, high reliability, and versatility that can be used for various gaming machines. For the purpose.

A gaming machine transport container according to the present invention made to achieve the above-described object is provided with the following configuration, whereby a gaming machine in a completed state or at least a semi-finished state including at least an outer frame is vertically arranged at a predetermined interval in the front-rear direction. A plurality of stacks can be supported while being placed.
(1-1) The container body includes a front surface portion, a back surface portion, a floor portion, and a ceiling portion, and both side surface portions are open, and the overall width is slightly larger than an integer multiple of the width of the vertically installed gaming machine.
(1-2) A fall prevention member having a length that can cover the entire length of the container main body is detachably attached to the both side surface portions so as to span the front and rear.
(1-3) The lower guide member attached so as to extend in the width direction on the upper surface side of the floor portion and the upper guide member attached so as to extend in the width direction on the lower surface side of the ceiling portion are paired, It is the structure which supports the lower end part and upper end part of the game machine of the said vertical installation state.
(1-4) The lower guide member is configured as a pair of a lower front guide and a lower rear guide that are attached at a slightly larger interval than the depth size of the lower end portion of the vertically installed gaming machine, Is configured as a pair of an upper front guide and an upper rear guide that are attached at a slightly larger distance than the depth size of the upper end portion of the gaming machine in the vertically placed state.
(1-5) The distance between the floor portion and the ceiling portion is greater than the height of the vertically placed gaming machine, and the distance from the upper end of the paired lower guide member to the lower end of the upper guide member is It is comprised so that it may become smaller than the height of the said gaming machine of the said vertically placed state.
(1-6) Each of the fall prevention members includes a cushion member on the inner side, and in a state where the fall prevention member is attached to the both side surface portions, an interval between the cushion members is larger than an integral multiple of a width of the vertically-equipped gaming machine. It is small and is configured so that a pressing force can be applied from both sides to the gaming machine placed vertically.
(1-7) A lower guide rail formed with a slit extending over the entire length of the lower guide rail is attached so as to extend in the full length direction with respect to the floor portion, and at least one of a pair of a lower front guide and a lower rear guide Is attached so that its position can be adjusted by a lower guide position adjusting member inserted through the slit of the lower guide rail.
(1-8) At least one of a pair of upper front guide and upper rear guide is attached by attaching an upper guide rail formed with a slit extending over the entire length of the upper guide rail so as to extend in the full length direction with respect to the ceiling portion. Is attached so that the position thereof can be adjusted by an upper guide position adjusting member inserted through the slit of the upper guide rail.

  According to the gaming machine transport container of the present invention having the configuration of (1-1) to (1-8) above, when loading a completed or semi-completed gaming machine, the drop on the side to be loaded Remove only the prevention member. Then, loading is performed by sliding the gaming machine in the width direction in a vertically placed state from the side surface that has been opened by removing the fall prevention member. At this time, the upper and lower guide members constitute a groove having a margin in the front-rear direction, and there is a margin in the height of the floor portion and the ceiling portion, so that the gaming machine can be pushed in smoothly. Further, since the gaming machine pushed into the container main body is stopped by abutting against the cushion member of the fall prevention member that has been attached to the opposite side, there is no problem that it is pushed too far and dropped to the opposite side.

  When the gaming machine is loaded in this way, the fall prevention member on the removed side is attached. Then, the gaming machine is firmly fixed in a state of being sandwiched by being pressed from both sides in the width direction between the fall prevention member on the opposite side. Therefore, even if the upper and lower guide members are not sandwiched from the front and rear, the gaming machine is firmly fixed, and the risk of injury due to vibration can be prevented. Moreover, since the fall prevention member has a length that can cover the entire length of the container main body, it can be fixed all at once.

  Further, when the completed or semi-completed gaming machine is to be lowered, the fall prevention member on the side where the gaming machine is to be lowered is removed. Then, the gaming machine is pushed out from the opposite side toward the opened state by removing the fall prevention member. Also in this case, since the fall prevention member has a length that can cover the entire length of the container main body, the sides to be pushed out can be opened at the same time.

  Furthermore, in the gaming machine transport container according to the present invention, when loading or unloading the gaming machine, the fall prevention member must be removed to make one side open, so that each gaming machine is in a fixed state. However, it does not cause the problem of trying to push out by mistake. In addition, as described above, when loading is performed, only the side surface is opened, so it is impossible to forget to perform loading work, so forgetting the opening operation when loading. Nor. And since the space | interval of an upper and lower guide and the height of a floor part and a ceiling have room, the problem of pushing a game machine into force does not arise.

  These unique functions and effects employ a configuration in which a fall prevention member having a length that can cover the entire length is attached to and detached from the side surface portion of the container body whose overall width is slightly larger than an integer multiple of the width of the gaming machine (1-1, 1). -2) Adopting a structure that can support the lower end and upper end of the gaming machine with upper and lower guide members having allowance in the front-rear direction and also in the height direction (1-3 to 1-5) This is because, when the fall prevention member is attached to both side surfaces, a configuration (1-6) is adopted in which a pressing force is naturally generated from both sides to fix the gaming machine. The gaming machine transport container of the present invention adopting such a configuration is not limited in the direction of loading and unloading, can prevent vibration during transportation, and has an opportunity to be damaged by forgetting the fixing operation or forgetting the opening operation. Therefore, the workability is good and the reliability is high.

  In addition, since the gaming machine transport container of the present invention has the configurations of (1-7) and (1-8), the upper and lower guide members are formed by moving the guide members by loosening the fixing members. The interval between the groove portions can be changed. Therefore, it can be used for gaming machines having different thicknesses in the depth direction. Note that the height and width of the gaming machine need not be considered as a gaming machine in which the outer frame is different from the configuration (standard) of the gaming island in the game hall. Therefore, the versatility of the container can be improved only by adopting the configurations (1-7) and (1-8). Further, improving the versatility of the container is more preferable for the purpose of preventing damage when loading and unloading gaming machines.

  In addition, the configurations of (1-7) and (1-8) adopted by the gaming machine transport container of the present invention can not only simply change the interval between the groove portions formed by the upper and lower guide members, The changeable range is almost unrestricted. This is because the lower guide rail and the upper guide rail have slits over their entire length.

  In addition, the semi-finished gaming machine in the present invention includes only the outer frame, the one in which only the lower plate part is fixed to the outer frame, and the like before the game board or the front door is attached. It does not matter. In addition, a configuration that can be used as a hand cart by attaching casters to the bottom surface can be adopted for the gaming machine transport container of the present invention.

Here, the gaming machine transport container of the present invention may further include the following configuration.
(2-1) Either one of the lower front guide and the lower rear guide that is paired with the lower guide position adjusting member is fixed to the floor portion as a standard for adjusting the interval.
(2-2) One of the upper front guide and the upper rear guide that are paired with the upper guide position adjusting member is fixed to the ceiling portion and used as a standard for adjusting the distance.

  As a result of adjusting the spacing of the guide member by making one of the paired members slidable and the other fixed (non-slidable), the guide member was attached obliquely to the floor or ceiling A state can be avoided. Therefore, it is possible to avoid a problem that the gaming machine is pushed and damaged in the oblique groove when the gaming machine is loaded after the interval adjustment. In addition, by fixing one of the front and rear guides to be paired, the balance of the gaming machine loading position in the length direction of the container is not lost, so that the gaming machine can be loaded with a good weight balance. Furthermore, since there is a standard, the interval adjustment work can be performed efficiently.

  Further, (2-3) “The above-mentioned upper and lower guide members, which are respectively fixed and used as the reference, are the guides on the same side of the front and rear guides which are paired in each pair of upper and lower guide members. It is advisable to adopt a configuration of “what is said to be”. By doing in this way, the effect | action which sets a game machine loading position with the above-mentioned weight balance becomes more reliable. In addition, the work of adjusting the distance by sliding only one of the front and rear sides of the pair of guides is less likely to cause errors and can be performed efficiently.

In addition, the gaming machine transport container adopting the configurations of (2-1) and (2-2) may further include the following configurations.
(3-1) The lower guide position adjusting member is configured by a bolt and a nut that can be screwed by inserting a screw shaft into the slit of the lower guide rail, and the slit is opened on an upper surface of the lower guide rail. In addition, an axial hole that can accommodate the lower part of the bolt and nut is integrally formed over the entire length at the lower part of the slit, and also serves as a frame on both the left and right sides of the floor. That.
(3-2) The upper guide position adjusting member is configured by a bolt and a nut that can be screwed by inserting a screw shaft into the slit of the upper guide rail, and the slit is opened on a lower surface of the upper guide rail. In addition, an axial hole that can accommodate the upper part of the bolt and nut is integrally formed over the entire length at the upper part of the slit, and also serves as a frame on both the left and right sides of the ceiling part. Being.

  According to the gaming machine transport container adopting the configuration of (3-1) and (3-2), the lower guide rail and the upper guide rail are made of a mold material, and the left and right side portions of the floor portion and the ceiling portion are arranged. Since it is arranged so that it also serves as a frame, it can exhibit an effective function as a strength member. Moreover, since it is a mold material, its accuracy is good, and the positioning accuracy when adjusting the groove interval between the lower guide member and the upper guide member is good. In addition, since the lower guide rail and the upper guide rail are arranged at the position that also serves as the frames on both the left and right sides, the work for adjusting the distance between the upper and lower guide members can be performed on the open side surface of the container, making it easy to adjust the position. It is. In addition, since the position is adjusted on the left and right, the operation of making the front and rear guides in a parallel state is easy. Therefore, when using a long guide that loads a plurality of gaming machines in the width direction, there is no problem that it becomes difficult to load and unload due to a difference in the groove spacing of the guide member between the front and the back. The mold material is preferably an aluminum mold material that is lightweight and strong.

In addition, the gaming machine transport container adopting the configurations of (3-1) and (3-2) may further include the following configurations.
(4-1) A wing nut or a wing bolt is adopted as a bolt / nut constituting the lower guide position adjusting member and the upper guide position adjusting member .

  That is, the nut is accommodated in the axial hole of the guide rail and the guide member is sandwiched by the butterfly bolt, or the bolt is accommodated so that the screw shaft protrudes from the slit in the axial hole of the guide rail. Therefore, it is preferable to employ a configuration in which the guide member is attached so as to sandwich the guide member. This is because by adopting such a configuration, the workability of the guide member groove interval adjustment work is further improved.

  According to the present invention, the direction of loading and unloading is not limited, vibration during transportation can be prevented, the chance of injury due to forgetting fixing operation and forgetting opening operation can be reduced, and various A container for transporting gaming machines having versatility that can be used for gaming machines can be provided. This versatility improvement also exhibits the effect of reducing the chance of injury by providing a container that is optimal for the depth dimension of the gaming machine.

In addition, the angle members 71 and 73 constituting the upper guide member have a distance DG2 between the vertical portions 72 and 74 (groove width of the upper guide member) DG2 than the depth size DP2 of the upper end portion of the gaming machine P in the vertically placed state. The mounting position has been adjusted to make it slightly wider. Note that the depth sizes DP1 and DP2 of the gaming machine P change as the decorative parts attached to the outer frame change. Further, the depth size DP1 of the lower end portion and the depth size DP2 of the upper end portion of the gaming machine P may be the same or different. Therefore, the groove widths of the lower guide member and the upper guide member are adjusted according to the gaming machine P to be loaded using this groove width adjustment function. Thereby, it can be used for various gaming machines, and even the same kind of gaming machines can be used in an optimal state according to the manufacturing process.

  As shown in FIGS. 1, 4, and 5, the cart 100 extends from the four corners of the mounting surface 111 to a predetermined height with a rectangular mounting surface 111 having an area slightly larger than the bottom area of the container body 10. The bottom frame 110 is provided with four corner guides 112 that can guide the lower ends of the four corners of the container body 10 from the outside. The bottom frame 110 is manufactured by welding and assembling steel angle members, and has a sturdy structure by welding and fixing a steel strip 113 in the width direction. The four-corner guide 112 and the bottom frame 110 are also reinforced by triangular brackets 114 on the front and back surfaces. The casters 115 are attached to the bottom surfaces of the four corners of the bottom frame 110.

  As shown in FIG. 6A, the container main body 10 can be used as a hand cart that is placed on the carriage 100, or can be used as a single unit as shown in FIG. It can also be used for storage or loading a conveyor line in a factory. 6A, in addition to the weight of the container body 10 and the weight of the gaming machine P to be placed, it is supported from the outside by the vertical portion of the bottom frame 110 and the four corner guides 112. As a result, there is no possibility that the container body 10 and the bottom frame 110 will drop off without being particularly connected and fixed.

  When loading the completed or semi-completed gaming machine P into the gaming machine transport container 1 of the embodiment configured as described above, as shown in FIG. 7 and FIG. Only the fall prevention member 81 on the side to be removed is removed. Then, the gaming machine P is slid in the width direction in a vertically placed state from the side surface that has been opened by removing the fall prevention member 81 and loaded. At this time, the upper and lower guide members constitute a groove having a margin in the front-rear direction, and there is a margin in the height of the floor portion and the ceiling portion, so that the gaming machine P can be pushed in smoothly. In addition, the gaming machine P pushed into the container body 10 is stopped by coming into contact with the cushion member 84 of the fall prevention member 82 that has been attached to the opposite side, so that it is pushed too far and dropped to the opposite side. There is no.

  When the gaming machine is loaded in this way, the fall prevention member 81 on the removed side is attached. Then, as shown for the lower side in FIGS. 7 and 8, the gaming machine P is firmly fixed in a state of being sandwiched by being pressed from both sides in the width direction between the anti-falling member 82. Therefore, even if the upper and lower guide members are not sandwiched from the front and rear, the gaming machine P is firmly fixed, and the risk of injury due to vibration can be prevented. Moreover, since the fall prevention members 81 and 82 have a length that can cover the entire length of the container body 10, they can be fixed together.

  Further, when the completed or semi-completed gaming machine P is lowered, the fall prevention member 81 (or 82) on the side where the gaming machine is to be lowered is removed. And the game machine P is pushed out from the opposite side toward the direction which removed the fall prevention member 81 (or 82), and was in the open state. Also in this case, since the fall prevention members 81 and 82 have a length that can cover the entire length of the container body 10, the side surfaces on the extrusion side can be simultaneously opened.

  Furthermore, in the gaming machine transport container 1 of the embodiment, when loading or unloading the gaming machine P, the fall prevention member 81 (or 82) must be removed and one side surface must be opened. Even if the gaming machine P is in a fixed state, it does not cause a problem that it tries to push out by mistake. In addition, as described above, when loading is performed, only the side surface is opened, so it is impossible to forget to perform loading work, so forgetting the opening operation when loading. Nor. Since there is room in the distances DG1 and DG2 between the upper and lower guides and the heights HC1 and HC2 between the floor and the ceiling, there is no problem of forcibly pushing the gaming machine P and scratching it.

  In addition, in the gaming machine transport container 1 of the present embodiment, a total of 16 gaming machines P of 2 × 4 each can be stacked vertically in two stages, so that a large number of gaming machines can be transported. Is possible. And since the fall prevention members 81 and 82 which can be attached and detached separately from the upper and lower sides are provided, there is no inconvenience that the gaming machine loaded on the upper stage falls during the lower stage loading and unloading work. Furthermore, two gaming machines housed in each row have their outer surfaces pressed by the cushion members 85 and 86, and the inner surfaces are in close contact with each other, so that the game machines can be transported securely. In this case, the contact surface is hardly damaged.

  Further, the fall prevention members 81 and 82 attached so as to hang in the front-rear direction are hung by hooking the latches 83 and 84 on the beam girder member 22 and the like of the container body 10 as shown in FIG. be able to. As a result, it is possible to eliminate the possibility of losing the fall prevention members 81 and 82, which is an important configuration in the present invention. In addition, since the fall prevention members 81 and 82 do not have to be stood against a wall, for example, there is no problem that the fall prevention members 81 and 82 fall down and hit the gaming machine P.

  In addition, since the gaming machine transport container 1 according to the present embodiment can be mounted on the cart 100 and used as a hand cart, a person can push and move it with the capacity of the handcart without using a forklift or the like. it can. On the other hand, when it is put on the roller conveyor in the factory and turned to the next process, the machine is loaded on the next process without using the carriage 100 and is placed firmly on the conveyor line with its own weight. You can send a container in the standing state. Of course, the container main body 10 can be in a state where it is firmly placed on the conveyor line even when the container main body 10 is sent to the gaming machine loading process by an empty load.

  Furthermore, when loading on a truck bed, if the container body 10 is used alone, the fixing work on the bed is reduced. It should be noted that the container body 10 may be used in a state where the container body 10 is placed on the cart 100 when transporting to the truck or the conveyor line.

  In addition, the gaming machine transporting container 1 of the present embodiment includes a column member 11 in which the container body 10 is detachably connected and fixed using pipe connecting parts 51 to 55 and a circular pipe and a grooved aluminum frame. Since the beam girder member 21 and the joist member 41 are configured, the container body 10 is disassembled and compact when not used for a long period of time or when it is desired to transport the empty container 1 far away. It can be in the form. Moreover, since the pipe is assembled, weight reduction is also achieved. Therefore, handling in an empty load is easy. On the other hand, since the pipe can have a large section modulus even when the weight is reduced by setting the outer diameter and thickness, there is no problem in strength. Such a lightweight and durable container main body 10 is easy to work both when it is attached to the cart 100 and when it is taken out.

  Note that the presence of the intermediate floor portion not only allows a large number of gaming machines to be loaded, but also increases the strength of the container body 10 against twisting. In particular, since the joist members 43 and 44 of the intermediate floor are attached to the upper surface side and the lower surface side, the effect of improving the torsional strength is higher.

  As described above, according to the gaming machine transport container 1 of the present embodiment, the loading and unloading direction is not limited, vibration during transportation can be prevented, and damage due to forgetting fixing operation or forgetting opening operation can be prevented. The opportunity for this can also be reduced. As a result, it is possible to provide a highly reliable gaming machine transporting container. In addition, it is possible to provide a container for transporting gaming machines having a large loading capacity in which two machines can be arranged side by side and loaded with gaming machines P in a plurality of rows and two stages. Furthermore, the possibility of losing the fall prevention members 81 and 82 or damaging the gaming machine P with the fall prevention members 81 and 82 can be prevented. In addition, it is easy to move, and an effect is exhibited that the work when putting it on a truck bed or a conveyor line in a factory is not troublesome. Furthermore, it is easy to handle and is lightweight, and can be stored in a disassembled manner when unnecessary. Further, the torsional strength of the disassembling container body can be improved and the loading capacity can be improved.

  Further, by adopting the grooved aluminum frame 200, the interval between the groove portions formed by the upper and lower guide members can be easily changed over a wide range. In the embodiment, the upper and lower guide members employ a configuration in which the rear guide member is fixed. However, the rear guide member is also mounted using the slits and the trapezoidal cross-sectional grooves of the grooved aluminum frame 200. You may comprise so that it can change easily. In the case of adopting such a configuration, the grooved aluminum frame 200 functions as a guide rail over the entire length of the container main body, and further versatility can be improved.

  In addition, by adopting a configuration in which one of the paired guide members is slidable and the other is fixed as in the embodiment, the rear guide is determined as a reference for the position in the front-rear direction, so the interval adjustment is performed. As a result, there is an advantage that the guide member can be prevented from being attached obliquely to the floor or ceiling. Therefore, according to the embodiment, not only can the interval adjustment be performed easily, but also a problem that the gaming machine is pushed into an oblique groove and damaged when the gaming machine is loaded can be avoided. In addition, by fixing one of the front and rear guides to be paired, the balance of the gaming machine loading position in the length direction of the container is not lost, so that the gaming machine can be loaded with a good weight balance. Furthermore, since there is a standard, the interval adjustment work can be performed efficiently.

  In particular, the embodiment states that “the upper and lower guide members that are fixed and used as the reference are the guides on the same side of the front and rear guides that are paired in each pair of upper and lower guide members”. Therefore, the operation of setting the gaming machine loading position with a good weight balance as described above is more reliable. In addition, the work of adjusting the distance by sliding only one of the front and rear sides of the pair of guides is less likely to cause errors and can be performed efficiently.

  Further, in the embodiment, the butterfly bolt 67 is screwed into the hexagon nut 68 stored in advance in the trapezoidal cross-section grooves 205 and 207 by inserting the screw shafts into the slits 201 and 203 of the grooved aluminum frame 200. Since the stop structure is adopted, the following functions and effects are also exhibited. First, since the upper and lower guide rails are made of aluminum mold material and are arranged so as to serve as both the left and right side frames of the floor portion and the ceiling portion, an effective function as a strength member can be exhibited. Moreover, since it is an aluminum mold material, its accuracy is good, and the positioning accuracy when adjusting the groove spacing between the lower guide member and the upper guide member is good. In addition, since the upper and lower guide rails are arranged at positions that also serve as the frames on both the left and right sides, the operation of adjusting the distance between the upper and lower guide members can be performed on the open side surface of the container, and the position adjustment is easy. In addition, since the position is adjusted on the left and right, the operation of making the front and rear guides in a parallel state is easy. Therefore, when using a long guide that loads a plurality of gaming machines in the width direction, there is no problem that it becomes difficult to load and unload due to a difference in the groove spacing of the guide member between the front and the back. Further, the use of the butterfly bolt 67 further improves the workability of the guide member groove interval adjustment work.

  Although one embodiment as the best mode for carrying out the invention has been described above, the present invention is not limited to this, and various modifications can be made without departing from the scope of the invention.

  For example, a hex bolt and a wing nut may be used instead of a wing bolt and a hex nut. In addition, the container main body has a structure with only one stage instead of two upper and lower stages, or a container main body with a configuration in which one gaming machine is placed instead of two in each row, or each row 3 It can also be a larger container body that can stack three stages.
