PACKING AND SHETING BOX 0R CASE.
Application filed March 5, 1921.
To all whom it may cancer h:
Be it known that I, CLARENCE S. Wroxns, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the borough of Merchantville, in the State of New Jersey, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Packing and Shipping Boxes or Cases, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact disclosure.
My invention relates to cases or boxes in which articles may be packed and safely shipped, and my invention particularly relates to those cases or containers which are preferably made out of sheet material, such as cardboard or box-board, and which are provided with a tray of similar sheet material adapted to securely hold and protect from injury, the article fitting therein. the
tray being shaped and adaptedto closely fit within the outer casing or box. More particularly, my invention relates to cases or boxes in which one of at least two different types or kinds of articles may be placed without any change in the construction of the packing box.
The object of my invention is to provide an inexpensive easily constructed packing and shipping box or case in which one of more than one kind or type of article may be fitted with equal facility, to avoid the necessity of making a separate or different tray or container for each different kind or type of article.
Further objects of my invention are to so construct the outer casing and tray to be fitted therein, that the strong substantially unbreakable parts of the article, such as the metallic casing of a sound box, when fitted within the tray and placed in the outer box or container, gives strength and rigidity to the entire package, while at the same time, any delicate easily injured parts of the article, such as the diaphragm, stylus bar and stylus bar mounting, are kept spaced away from and out of contact with any part of the shipping box or case, or of the tray contained therein, and are thus protected from injury. Other objects of my invention will appear in the specification and claims below.
In the drawing forming a part of this specification and in which the same reference characters are employed throughout,
the various views to designate the same Serial No. Mame.
parts Fig. 1 is a perspective view of my new and improved packing and shipping box or case wlth the tray removed from the outer box or casing and in position to be inserted into the outer box or casing.
Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of the shipping box and tray assembled with one kind or type of sound box mounted or packed therein; and
Fig. 3 is a similar view of the tray alone with another kind or type of sound box mounted or packed therein and ready to be inserted into the outer box or casing of the package.
The outer box or casing 1 is a rectangular box, preferably made of cardboard folded in any suitable or appropriate manner, and preferably provided with an opening 2 at one end thereof which may be closed by first folding down the two side flaps 3- and then folding up the large end flap 5 provided with a narrow extension flap 6 adapted to fit over the top edges of the side flaps 34 and under the top side of the box or casing 1. The top of the box or casing 1 is preferably provided with a semicircular recess 7 tofacilitate the withdrawal of the narrow extension flap 6 to open the outer box'or container 1, and to facilitate the removal of the tray 8 from the outer casing 1 as will be referred to again below.
The tray 8 is preferably made from a sheet of card-board or box-board, or other sheet material, first cut into a blank and suitably scored for bending and folding. The completed tray comprises two parallel spaced rectangular tray members 9 and 10, withthe web 11 connecting said members along an edge thereof. The tray member 9 is preferably provided around the three free edges thereof with an outwardly extending perpendicular flange 12, made by bending up the integral flaps 13, 14c and 15. The flap 15 is preferably provided with short or small integral flaps orextensions 1616 which are preferably respectively glued or otherwise rigidly secured to the side flaps 1 3 and 14: to form the said rigid outwardly extending flange 12;
The other tray member 10 is similarly provided with an outwardly extending flange 17, similarly formed by bending up the side flaps 18 and 19 and the end flap 20 similarly provided with similar small extensions or flaps 21-21 which are then similarly respectively secured by lue or otherwise, to the inside of the sidejlaps 18 and 19.v
In this way the two tray members 9 and 10 are provided along the three free edges thereof with rigid flanges extending outwardly and serving, among other things, to stiffen the whole. structure, and to hold the article placed therebetween spaced from'the walls of the outer container. The web 11 in addition to serving to secure together the two tray members, may also form a common flange for both tray members tending to stifi'en and make rigid the edges of the two tray'members that are integrally connected to ether thereby. 4
0 hold the article and prevent its displacement each tray member is provided with an elongated opening or aperture which consists of a circular portion communicating with a radially extending parallel-sided slot portion narrower in width than the diameter of the circular portion, the aperture thus formed being somewhat of the shape of a keyhole. One .tray member 9 is provided with a keyhole shaped structure 22 having a circular portion22 and a parallel sided portion 22 communicating therewith, the aperture 22 being preferably disposed longitudinally of the tray member 9. Similarly, the other tray member 10 is provided with a similar keyhole shaped aperture 23, comprising the circular portions 23' and th parallel sided slot portion 23". The circular portions 22 and 23 of the apertures 22 and 23 are in axial alinement with each other when the trays are placed one over the other, but they are preferably of different diameters and the edges thereof are adapted respectively to fit around snugly and hug the cylindrical projections on the backs of different types or kinds of sound boxes. The slotted portions 22 and 23 of the apertures 22 and 23 respectively, are preferably like each other in shape and size, except as modified by the different diameters of the circular portions communicating therewith, and they are likewise in axial alinement with each other when the trays are superposed in operative position. The height of the connecting web 11 is made substantially equal to the thickness of the main portion, of a sound box casing, so that when a sound box 24: on 25 is placed between the tray members 9 and 10 with the circular projection on the back thereof within the circular portion 22 or 23 as the case may be, of the apertures 22-and 23 respectively, the back of the sound. box will rest squarely against the, upper surface of one of said tray members and the other tray member will rest squarely against and around the flange 24 or 25 which projects upwardly from the diaphragm 24 or 25 mounted in the sound box 24; or 25 below the said rim or flange 24: or 25.
By reason of this construction, the tray members are adapted to hold the article firmly between them, when placed within the outer container 1, to prevent the displacement of the article, and to keep the article spaced from and out of contact with the inner walls of the outer container 1.
In Fig. 2 is illustrated a sound box 24 having a circular project-ion 24 extending from the back thereof, the pro'ection 24 being tube-like and adapted to lit over the end of the tone arm of a talking machine. This projection 24 is shown to be of a siz to snugly fit into the circular portion 23 of th aperture 23 of the tray member 10. When this sound box is so placed between the tray members 9 and 10, the stylus bar 24* enters and lies within the aperture 22 in the tray member 9 and the stylus bar mounting 24 where it projects above or below the sound box casing lies within th slotted portions 22", 23 of the apertures 22 and 23 respectively, out of contact with the tray and below the top of the flanges 12 and 17 of the tray members respectively.
In Fig. 3 is shown another type or style of sound box 25 having a dili'erent sized circular projection 25 on the back thereof, larger than the projection 21 on the sound box 21. This sound box is similarly mounted within and between the tray members 9 and 10, th larger cylindrical projection 25" fitting within the circular portion 22 of the aperture 22. In this case the tray member 10 lies on the flange 25 on the front face of the sound box casing 25 above the diaphragm 25 and the stylus bar 25" lies within the aperture 23 of the tray member 10. In a like manner, the stylus bar mounting 25 wher it projects above or below the sound box casing, lies and is securely held within the slotted portions 22 and 23" of the apertures 22 and 23 respectively. It must be apparent, then, that two sound boxes having cylindrical projections on the rear or back thereof of diiierent sizes, are equally well accommodated by the single tray by fitting the projection into the aperture adapted to cooperate therewith, whereupon the stylus bar thereof projects into the. aperture in the other member adapted to fit around the tubular projection in the back of another kind of sound box.
The free ends of the flanges 12 and 17 are preferably beveled as at 12 and 17 respectively, to facilitate the insertion of the tray into the outer box or casing 1.
The over-all width and length of the tray members are respectively made equal to th width and length of the interior of the box casing 1, and the combined height of the flange 12 and the web 11 and the flange 17 is equal to th height of the interior of the outer box or casing 1 so that when the tray members, with a sound box secured between them, are inserted into the outer box or casing 1 the whole structure is very rigid, the rigidity of the sound box casing itself resting between the tray members 9 and 10 being imparted to the whole structure, it being observed, however, that the stylus bar and stylus bar mounting and the diaphragm, all of which are sensitive or delicate parts easily disarranged or broken, are well protected and are kept out of contact or en gagement with the sides of the outer box or container 1 or the tray by the flanges 12 and 17, and by the apertures 22 and 23 in the tray.
To unpack the sound box, the flaps 5, 3
and 4 are opened thus exposing the portion of the flange 12 or 17 (as the'case may be) formed by theflaps 15 or 20 respectively. Ihis flange may be readily grasped between the fingers and the tray easily drawn out of the outer box or casing 1 Without tearing or otherwise mutilating the outer box or the tray members, or injuring the sound box.
As above stated, the outer box or container 1 is preferably made of sheet material, such as cardboard or box-board, but it is obvious that any light box construction may be employed, because of the rigidity imparted to the outer casing by the tray and sound box carried thereby. The tray is also preferably made of card or box board, as has been above described, but any suitable sheet material maybe used therefor. My invention is, however, particularly adapted to the use of a normally flexible and relatively weak material, which, by-reason of the construction and arrangement of the parts, as above described, is rendered strong and rigid, and capable of withstanding the rough usage to which shipping boxes or cases are ordinarily subjected.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim and desire to'protect by Letters Patent of the United States is:
1. In a shipping case the combination with an outer casing, of a tray adapted to fit within said casing and comprising two tray members disposed substantially parallel to each other, adapted to lie flat against the opposite sides of an article placed between them, and provided with apertures, one of which is adapted to fit snugly around and frictionally hold said article within said member, a rectangular web connecting said tray members along one edge of each and forming a common stiffening flange for both members, and outwardly extending flanges on the free edges of each of said trays to further stiffen said members, to respectively engage the walls of the outer casing, and to hold said article spaced from the walls of said outer casing.
2.
