Description

DESCRIPTION " ARTICULATED COVER CONTAINER " The present invention relates to a new hinged lid container, which finds particular application as a container for elongated articles of cigarettes, such as cigarettes. It is known to pack elongate smoking articles and other consumer articles in containers formed from folded laminar construction dies. Elongated smoking articles, such as cigarettes and cigars, are usually sold in hinged cover packs having a carton portion for housing smoking articles and a cover portion attached to the carton portion about a hinge line extending therefrom, through the rear wall of the container. These bundles, typically, are constructed from one-piece laminar carton building dies. In use, the cap portion is hinged about the hinge line to open the pack and thereby access the smoking articles held in the carton portion.

Graphics and text are typically applied outside the consumer article container in order to communicate information to the consumer. However, the standard hinged lid cigarette packs are relatively small in size and have a visible outer surface area limited to displaying this information. It is known to the manufacturers to attempt to increase the amount of information communicated to the consumer in hinged lid packs by providing additional surfaces on which the information can be printed. This has been obtained, for example, by incorporating additional panels or coupons into the container. These panels and coupons may be integral with the container or, alternatively, may be incorporated separately into the container.

It has also been proposed to provide hinged cover packs for smoking articles having an increased interior surface area for printing indications and graphics. For example, WO-A-03/078274 discloses a hinged cover pack for smoking articles wherein an increased interior surface area is provided by means of an interior structure and, alternatively or additionally, by means of the facing surface into the front wall of the lid. DE 1054373 discloses a hinged lid pack having the features of the preamble of claim 1, wherein the wall piece of the lid has an increased height so as to overlie the front wall of the carton in the closed position of the lid. US 4923059 also discloses a hinged cover pack with a top cover face wall of increased height. US 6527166 discloses a hinged cover pack having a cutout in the carton front wall, so that the front wall of the inside structure is visible in the closed position of the closure.

It would be desirable to provide a hinged lid container for smoking articles having an interior surface area for displaying consumer information larger than the typical hinged lid packs without substantially increasing the overall size of the container or quantity of material required to manufacture it. In addition, it would be desirable to provide a hinged lid container 2 for smoking articles having a larger and uninterrupted space for displaying consumer information on the lid portion of the container. It would also be desirable to provide such a hinged lid container without compromising the strength or rigidity of the container.

It would still be desirable to provide a new hinged lid container having a larger inner surface area, but which could be produced with minimal or no change to the existing packaging machinery.

According to the present invention there is provided a container having a front wall, a back wall and opposed side walls extending therebetween, the container comprising: a carton portion; and a lid portion hinged to the carton portion along a hinge line extending through the rear wall of the container, wherein each side wall of the container, the angle φ between the front edge of the side wall of the lid portion and its lower edge is greater than the acute angle definido defined between the trailing edge of the side wall and a straight line extending between a first point (" point A ") where the hinge line meets the side wall and a second (" dot B ") where the upper edge of a front wall of the carton portion meets the side wall. When the container is closed the free edges of the lid part abut the free edges of the carton part, such that the abutment line extending between the first point A and the second point B comprises a first linear part extending between the front edge and the opposite rear edge of the side wall and a second linear portion extending along the front edge of the side wall of the container from the second point B to the point 3 where the first linear part meets the front wall of the container .

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

Preferably, the angle φ is at least 10 degrees greater than the angle Θ, more preferably at least 15 degrees. Preferably, the angle φ is between 45 degrees and 90 degrees, more preferably between 60 degrees and 90 degrees.

Preferably, the angle Θ is less than 60 degrees, more preferably between 35 degrees and 60 degrees, and particularly preferably between 35 degrees and 45 degrees.

The terms " front ", " ", ", " top ", " bottom ", " and other terms used to describe relative positions of the components of the containers according to the invention, refer to the container in an upright position. When the upright container is open, the smoking articles contained in the carton portion may be removed from the upper end of the container. The expression " pivot line " refers to a line around which the lid portion may be rotated so as to open the container. A hinge line may be, for example, a fold line or a crease line on the panel forming the rear wall of the container. Alternatively, a hinge line may be a fold line or a crease line in a piece of material that connects the back wall of the cap portion to the rear wall of the carton part. Such a piece of material may for example be a tag that is permanently or removably attached to the back wall of the lid portion and to the back wall of the carton portion. Preferably, the hinge line is positioned along the rear or side wall of the container, at a level below its upper edge. The term " linear " is used herein to describe a substantially straight line.

Typically, in a standard pack of hinged lid cigarettes, the straight line extending between point A and point B, as defined above, coincides with the straight line of abutment in the side wall of the container along which the the lower edges of the side walls of the lid part abut the upper edges of the side walls of the carton part. Accordingly, the abutment line also makes an angle Θ with the rear edge of the side wall of the container. In a typical pack of hinged lid cigarettes, the angle Θ is approximately 60 degrees.

Throughout the present description, the expression " line of abutment " is used to describe the line along which the free edges of the walls of the lid portion of a container in accordance with the present invention abut the free edges of the walls of the carton portion when the container is closed.

In a typical pack of hinged lid cigarettes, the angle Θ and the angle φ are substantially equal, both being approximately 60 degrees. In contrast, in containers according to the invention, the angle φ is greater than the angle θ, preferably at least 10 degrees. The difference of these angles is obtained by arranging a stop line having first and second linear parts between point A and point B, wherein the first and second linear portions extend at different angles from one another. The abutment line may include one or more additional linear portions, as described below. For example, in certain embodiments of the present invention, the abutment line further comprises a third linear portion extending from the first point A along the trailing edge of the side wall of the container.

Preferably, in containers according to the present invention the angle Θ is less than 60 degrees and therefore smaller than that of a standard hinged cover pack. By lowering the angle Θ of the containers according to the invention below 60 degrees, it is possible to obtain containers with a lid portion having a longer front wall than is typically provided in hinged lid cigarette packs. The length of the front wall is considered to be the vertical height of the wall when the container is upright and in an enclosed position. The outer surface area of the containers according to the invention may not necessarily be larger than the outer surface area of a typical pack of hinged lid cigarettes. However, the surface area of the front wall of the container lid portion according to the invention is larger than in a typical pack of hinged lid cigarettes. Accordingly, a larger inner surface area is visible to the consumer when the lid portion is open. This inner surface area includes, for example, the surfaces of the inner structure (if present), the surfaces of any other packaging of the smoking articles within the container and the inner surfaces of the lid portion.

Further consumer information may be provided in this further interior surface area, which becomes visible when the lid portion is open. Further, the surface area of the front face of the cap portion is larger than that of a standard hinged cap pack. Accordingly, a larger and uninterrupted space is provided for consumer information on the lid portion.

Preferably, in containers according to the present invention, the ratio of the length of the front wall of the cap portion to the length of the front wall of the carton portion is greater than 35:65, which is the ratio of these lengths to a typical packet of articulated lid cigarettes.

Although it may be desirable to maximize the angle Θ in order to increase the visible inner surface area of the containers according to the invention, it is also preferred that the angle φ is as large as possible. This is because the larger the angle φ, the more resistant and more durable the lower part of the side walls of the lid part. In addition, the larger the angle φ, the stiffer becomes the lower section of the lid portion. It is particularly preferred that the angle α defined between the abutment line extending through the side wall of the container and the trailing edge of the side wall of the container part of the container is also maximized. By increasing the angle α, the increased strength and durability described above with reference to the angle φ are likewise obtained for the upper part of the side walls of the carton part. Depending on the shape of the abutment line between point A and point B, angle a may be the same, or different from angle φ. The present invention provides containers in which the shape of the abutment line between point A and point B can be varied such that the angle Θ can be kept relatively low, while the angles φ and α may be similar to, or larger than the corresponding angles in known hinged cover packs. The strength and stiffness of the containers according to the invention need therefore not be compromised in order to obtain the larger inner surface area.

If desired, the corner in which the first linear part meets the second linear part may be bevelled or rounded.

Preferably, each side wall of the container is formed from an inner wall and an overlying outer wall. The abutment line extending along the inner wall between point A and point B may be different, or equal to the abutment line extending along the outer wall. Preferably, the abutment line extending along the inner wall between point A and point B has the same shape as the abutment line extending along the outer wall, but is vertically offset therefrom. A vertical offset can advantageously be employed to reinforce the rear wall of the carton portion and the front wall 8 of the cover portion. The abutment line between the lower edge of the front wall of the cap portion and the upper edge of the front wall of the carton portion is preferably a substantially horizontal, straight line. The front wall of the carton portion may include a cutout on its upper edge to expose the underlying wrapping. Alternatively or additionally, the front wall of the cap portion may include a cutout on its lower edge. When a cutout is provided, there will typically be no abutment from the lower edge of the cap portion to the upper edge of the carton portion and, consequently, the abutment line will be cut off. The arrangement of a cutout can help the consumer to open the lid part.

Preferably, the container further comprises an inner structure mounted within the carton part, wherein the inner structure extends above the upper edges of at least the front wall of the carton portion of the container. The inner structure is consequently visible to the consumer when the lid part is open. The front wall of the inner structure may be printed with indications which may be the same as or different from the indications printed on the front wall of the carton part. Alternatively, or in addition, the front wall of the inner structure may be cut off in a distinctive manner, for example to reflect the mark of the consumer articles.

Preferably, the front wall of the inner structure is provided with a cut out portion at its upper edge. This allows more convenient access to the consumer articles 9 within the container without significantly reducing the surface area of the front wall of the inner structure.

Alternatively or in addition to an interior structure, the smoking articles within the container may be enveloped with a printed coating, which is visible above the upper edge of the front wall of the carton portion and the front wall of the inner structure ( present) when the container is open.

Advantageously, it is possible to produce containers according to the invention using existing machinery which has only been slightly altered to take into account the different length of the front face of the lid part. The only fold that is required to be in a position other than a standard hinged cover pack is that along the lower edge of the front face of the cover portion.

The containers according to the invention may be substantially rectangular parallelepiped shaped, with right angled longitudinal edges and transverse right angled. Alternatively, the carton part or the lid part or both the carton part and the container lid part according to the invention may comprise one or more rounded longitudinal edges, rounded transverse edges, bevelled longitudinal edges or transverse edges bevelled, or combinations thereof. For example, by well-known creasing of a laminar construction matrix from which the carton portion and the lid portion of the container are erected, a cigarette packet or other round-cornered smoking articles " according to the invention. The container may be formed from any suitable materials including, but not limited to, carton, paperboard, plastic, metal or combinations thereof. Preferably, the container is formed from a single folded laminate construction matrix, more preferably from a folded carton laminate. Preferably, the carton has a weight of from about 100 grams per square meter to about 350 grams per square meter.

The containers according to the invention find particular application as packs for elongated smoking articles such as cigarettes, cigars or cigarillos. It will be appreciated that, through appropriate choices of their dimensions, the containers according to the invention can be designed for different numbers of cigarettes of conventional size, large size, extra large size, fine or extra fine.

With a suitable choice of dimensions, the containers according to the invention may also be designed to store different total numbers of smoking articles or different arrangements of smoking articles. For example, with a suitable choice of dimensions, the containers according to the invention may be designed to store a total of ten, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twenty, twenty, one, or twenty-five smoking articles . These may be arranged in different groupings, depending on the total number of smoking articles. For example, smoking articles may be arranged in a row of six, seven, eight, nine or ten; two rows of five, six, seven, eight, nine, or ten; two rows of 5-6, 6-7, 7-8; three 11 ranks 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; four rows of four, five or six. The length, width and depth of the containers according to the invention may be such that in the closed position the resulting overall dimensions of the container are similar to the dimensions of a typical disposable twenty-pack hinged lid pack.

The outer surfaces of the containers according to the invention may be printed, engraved, embossed or otherwise embossed with manufacturer or trade mark logos, trade marks, slogans and other information and instructions to the consumer.

When the carton portion of a container of the present invention contains a pack of cigarettes or other elongated smoking articles, the smoking articles are preferably wrapped in an inner lining of, for example, foil or paper metallized.

Once filled, the containers according to the invention may be wrapped with a heat-shrinkable coating or otherwise wrapped with a transparent polymer film of, for example, polyethylene or polypropylene, in a conventional manner. When the containers according to the invention are involved, the overcoating may include a burst tape. The bursting tape is preferably positioned around the container below the lower edge of the front wall of the lid part, such that, once the bursting tape is removed, the lid portion is free to be rotated around the hinge line. Alternatively, the tear tape may be provided longitudinally about the container. The invention will be further described, by way of example only, with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figures 1 and 2 show front perspective views of open hinged container containers according to the first and second embodiments of the present invention, respectively; and

Figures 1a and 2a show a schematic partial side view of the containers of Figures 1 and 2 thereof, showing the angles φ, Θ and α. The abutment line between A and B is shown in Figures 1a and 2a as a bold line. Figures 1a and 2a are not drawn to scale. The hinged lid container 30 shown in Figure 1 is a rectangular parallelepiped and comprises a lower carton portion 32 and an upper lid portion 34 which is hinged to the lower carton portion 32 along a hinge line extending substantially horizontal along the rear wall of the container. The level of the hinge line is indicated in Figure 1 at " A ". The carton portion 32 has 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 carton portion extend above its front wall so that the upper free edges of the side walls are deflected from the upper free edge of the front wall. The cover portion 34 has a front wall 36a, a left side wall 38a, a right side wall, a back wall and an upper wall. The front wall 36a of the cover portion 34 extends beyond its side walls 38a such that the lower edge of the front wall 36 is offset from the lower edges of the side walls 38a. The deviation corresponds to the deviation between the free upper edges of the front wall 36 and the side walls 38 of the carton part 32.

When the container 30 is closed, the free edges of the walls of the lid part 34 abut the free edges of the corresponding walls of the carton part 32 along an abutment line. In the closed position, the walls of the cap portion 34 consequently form extensions of the corresponding walls of the carton portion 32 to define the walls of the container 30.

As shown in Figures 1 and 1a, the abutment line between point A and point B consists of two connected line segments. As defined above, point A is where the hinge line meets the side wall of the container and the point B is where the upper edge of the front wall 36 of the housing part 32 meets the side wall. A first part 42

extends from point A along the side wall of the container to its front edge at an angle of about 60 degrees with the rear edge of the side wall. This angle corresponds to the angle a. A second portion 44 extends from the end of the first portion 42 downwardly along the front edge of the side wall of the container to the point B. The angle Θ in the container 10 is approximately 45 degrees, while the angle φ is approximately 60 degrees. The angle φ, therefore, is substantially the same as the angle α. The 14 abutment line between point A and point B is shown in bold in Figure 1a. The ratio of the length of the front wall 36a of the cap portion 34 to the length of the front wall 36 of the carton portion 32 is approximately 40:60. The front wall 38a of the cap portion 34 is longer relative to the total length of the container 30 than the front wall of the cap portion of a typical pack of hinged lid cigarettes. The carton portion 32 and the lid portion 34 are formed together from a single carton blank. Each of the opposing side walls of the carton portion 32 and the lid portion 34 are formed from an inner panel and an outer panel, affixed to the inner panel. The inner panel of each side wall is substantially the same size and shape as the outer panel member thereof. As can be seen from Figure 1, the panels superimpose each other directly with their free edges substantially aligned, such that the inner wall is barely visible.

An inner carton structure 20 is mounted on the carton part 32 against its inner walls. The inner structure is formed from a separate carton blank in the carton portion 32 and the cover portion 34 and has a front wall, a left wall and a right side wall. The front wall includes a cutout on its upper edge, so that the articles inside the container can be removed more easily. The walls of the inner structure 20 extend over the upper edges of the front and side walls 36 of the carton portion, into the space covered by the cover portion 34, when the container 30 is closed. The frictional engagement between the inner structure 20 and the inner walls of the cap portion 34 ensures that the cap portion 34 remains in a closed position until a positive force is applied to open the container by rotating the cap portion 34 around the hinge line. The friction coupling can be reinforced by the arrangement of retaining means on the inner structure 20 engaging the inner walls of the cap portion 34. The hinged lid container 50 shown in Figure 2 is of a construction similar to that shown in Figure 1 and described above. However, unlike in the container 30 shown in Figure 1, the abutment line extending between points A and B includes three Z-shaped linear parts, as described below. In addition, the inner and outer panels of the side walls of both the lid part 54 and the carton part 52 are of a different length from each other.

As shown in Figure 2a, the abutment line between point A and point B consists of three connected line segments. A first segment 72 extends from a point a short distance below the point A along the side wall of the container to its front edge at an angle of approximately 60 degrees to the rear edge of the side wall. This angle corresponds to the angle a. A second segment 74 extends from the end of the first segment 72 downwardly along the front edge of the side wall of the container to the point B. A third segment 76 extends from the opposite end of the first segment 72, upwardly along the rear edge of the side wall of the container to the point A. The three linear segments thus form a Z-shaped abutment line. The angle Θ in the container 50 is less than 45 degrees while the angle φ is approximately 60 degrees. Consequently, the angle φ is substantially the same as the angle α. The abutment line between point A and point B is shown in bold in Figure 2a.

As can be seen in Figure 2, the inner panels 60 of the side walls 58 of the carton portion 52 extend over their outer panels 62, so that the upper free edges of the inner panel 60 and outer panel 62 are offset of others. The upper freeboard of the inner panel 60 is parallel to the upper freeboard of the outer panel 62 and meets the hinge line at the rear edge of the side wall of the container. The portion of the inner panel 60 extending above the outer panel 62 reinforces the rear wall portion of the carton portion between the upper free edge of the outer panel 62 and the hinge line.

Conversely, the outer panels of the side walls 58 of the cover portion 54 extend beneath their 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 indicated by a dashed line in Figure 2. The offset in the cover portion 54 corresponds to the offset in the box portion 52, so that, when the container 50 is closed, the lower edges of the panels of each side wall 58a of the lid portion abut the upper edges of the corresponding panels 60, 62 of the side walls 58 of the carton portion 52.
