Description

July 2, 1935. c. s. ANDREWS DISPLAY B OX Filed April 5, 1932 INVENTO'R Oran W5 flminms BY mud (R-MAL ATTORNEY Patented July 2, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE '1 Claims.

This invention relates to an improved display box, and more particularly to a box divided into a plurality of cellular spaces adapted to contain various pieces of merchandise in assembled display.

The box herein disclosed includes a box body having a hinged 'cover stamped from a single sheet of material. A plurality of unitary cells are telescoped into and fit snugly within the box body, when thus arranged the cells greatly reinforce the box and in addition provide means for guiding the cover into closed position and for frictionally holding the cover in' closed position. This improved display box can be very economically manufactured and possesses suflicient strength to be effectually used in packaging commodities which have been heretofore packaged only in wooden and metal boxes. The box lends itself to a large variety of attractive designs and may be used to contain and attractively display an assembly or group of different types or varieties of bottled, packaged or unpackaged goods, merchandise and materials, such as pencils, pens, crayons, hairpins, shoe polish, cosmetics, liquid nail polish, facial cream preparations, toilet preparations, medical and surgical preparations or appliances and tools.

An object of this invention is to provide a dis-- play box adapted to contain and display group merchandise in an eflicient and attractive manner.

A further object of this invention is the provision of a display box comprising an outer container having a hinged cover with a series of cellular members inserted therein each adapted to contain and attractively display an article of merchandise, the cellular members together serving as a reinforcing medium for the co tainer and a guide for the cover. 0 Another object of this invention is to provide a blank for making the outer container of the improved display box.

Another object of this invention is to provide a blank for making the cellular member of the improved display box.

Another object of this invention is to provide an improved display box which requires a small amount of stock, can be made on automatic cutting and gluing machines with a minimum of hand labor and is otherwise economical to manufacture and produce, which possesses unusual strength and is adequate to' support heavy objects heretofore packed only in wood or metal containerawhich can be made up in a variety of attractive shapes and designs, and which afbody and cover portion of the box may be formed 'with a minimum of labor and materials.

Other objects of this invention will become apparent as the disclosure proceeds Although the novel features which are believed to be characteristic of this invention will be particularly pointed out in the claims appended hereto, the invention itself, as to its objects and advantages, and the manner in which it may be carried out, may be better understood by referring to the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawing forming a part thereof, in which Fig. 1 shows a cutout blank from which the Fig. 2 shows a cutout blank from which a pair of cellular inserts may be formed;

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the cellular inserts made from the blank shown in Fig. 2;

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the completed display box, the cover of the box being open to display a pair of cellular inserts therein; and

v Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a continuous tubular member and indicates an improved method of making the cellular inserts.

' Like reference characters referto similar parts throughout the drawing and specification.

I have shown in Fig. 1 a blank from which the. body and cover portion of the box is formed. This blank comprises generally a'front wall portion ID,

a rear wall portion II and end wall portions l2 and I3 hinged together along the score lines I 4. In forming the body portion of the container the flap portion l5 hinged to the back portion I I along the score line I6 is glued or otherwise secured to the free edge of the end wall portion l2. Bottom side wall flaps I! are hinged, respectively, to the front wall portion l0 and rear wall portion ll along the score lines I 8 and bottom end wall flaps I 9 are similarly hinged along score lines 20 to the end wall portion l2 and end wall portion I 3. The side wall flaps I1 and bottom end wall flaps l9 are turned inwardly, folded one upon the other and glued or otherwise secured together in the well known manner to form the bottom wall of the container.

The cover portion of the box is preferably formed integral with the body portion and comprises rear flange portion 2| hinged to the rear wall box portion ll along the score line 22. The

side flange portion 23 is hinged to the portion 2| along the score line 24. The front flange portion 25 is similarly hinged to portion 23 along the score line 26 and the end flange portion 21 is likewise hinged to the portion 25 along the score line 29, as clearly shown in Fig. 1. End flange portions 23 and 21 and front flange portion 25 are separated from the body portion of the box along the cut 29, as shown in Fig. 1. The cut 29 may be offset as at 39 to provide a suitable flnger grip for grasping the cover portion when the box is in set up condition as will be hereinafter described. A flap 3| hinged along the score line 32 to the rear flange portion 2| may be glued or otherwise secured to the free edge of the end flange portion 21. The cover flaps 33 hinged to the side flange portions 2| and 25 along the score lines 34, and the end flaps 35 hinged to the end flange portions 23 and 21 along the score lines 36 may be folded inwardly in superimposed relationship and secured together by cement or other means to form the top wall of the box. v

The outer container above described may be divided into any number of separate chambers orunits. To this end there is provided a cellular insert which is placed within the outer container. The cellular insert may comprise any desired number of separate cells or chambers, as will appear hereafter. For purposes of illustration only,

the cellular insert shown in the drawing com-- prises two units, but it is appreciated that any number of units in any desired size and capacity may be used. Referring to Fig. 2 of the drawing, the cellular insert may be formed from a blank which comprises front wall portions 5|, side wall portions 52 and 53, back wall portions 54 and securing tabs 55. The front wall portions 5|, side wall portions 52 and rear wall portions are completely separated at their abutting ends into pairs by a cut 56, while the paired side wall portions 53 are hinged together along the score line 51. The front, side and end wall portions are separated along the sides by the score lines 58, as clearly shown in Fig. 2.

The rear wall portions 54 may be longer than the front wall portions 5| and may also be provided with a rounded cutout top edge 59 to facilitate grasping the contents in the set up container, as will more clearly appear hereinafter. One end of the side wall portions 52 and 53 may be provided with'tapered edges 60 and in addition the edge 6|! of the side wall portion 53 may be notched out as at 6| to further facilitate the removal of the contents. All of the scores and cutouts referred to above and shown in Fig; 2 may be made in one operation as the roll of sheet material is fed through the scoring and cutting machine.

In forming the cellular insert the blank shown in Fig. 2 is folded along the score lines 58 into tubular form and the tabs 55 are then gluedstapled or otherwise secured to the free edges 62 of the side wall portions 52. The tube thus formed may be bent along the score line 51, as shown in Fig.3, so that the side wall portions 53 are in. contact with one another. The completed cellular insert may now be telescoped into the outer container, as shown in Fig. 4, and are of such size as to snugly fit therein, thus providing substantial reinforcement to the outer container. The upper end .of the cellular units project above the top edge 40 of the outer container to form a collar over which the cover telescopes. The frictional contact between the side walls of the cover and the collar portion thus provided holds the cover in place when moved into closed position.

It is now seen that this cellular insert may be made rapidly and economically from a single cut and scored blank, which is cut from a continuous ribbon of paper stock. The blank thus prepared may be automatically assembled by a single folding and securing operation.

Referring now to Fig. 5, there is shown a substantially continuous tubular member having the cross-sectional configuration and shape of .the cellular units shown in Figs. 3 and 4. This member may be formed as a continuous tube of any desired cross-sectional shape, but is shown in Fig. 5 as rectangular in cross-section for purposes of illustration only. As shown the tube is made from a continuous strip of material having the side wall portions 10, 1|, 12 and 13 and a securing tab portion 14 all separated by longitudinally extending score lines 15. The side wall portions are separated into segments by the spaced transverse scores 16 and the side wall portions 1|, 12 and 13 are severed into segments by the transverse cuts 11. The blank is then formed into a tube by folding the same along the score. lines 15, as clearly is then secured by glue, staples or other means to the free edge 18 of the side wall portion 10.

In making the cellular inserts from the tube shown in Fig. 5, the tube is sawed off at an oblique angle at intervals between the score lines so as to provide a chamfered edge 19 to the side wall portions 10 and 12. A cutout finger recess (not shown) may be provided along the top edge of the side wall portion 13 if desired. It is now seen that the units so made canbe folded together along the score line 16 so that the side wall portions 10 are in contact. From a proper arrangement of the score lines and cuts it is seen that any number of units may be linked together by a score line hinged so as to provide a battery of cells for insertion into the outer container. The cellular inserts made asillustrated in Fig. 5 can be economically manufactured on automatic machines with the least possible waste of material.

The battery of cells when container not only provides cover guides and cover retention means, but adds considerable strength to the body portion of the outer'container. The entire box is adapted for automatic machine production and can be made completely on a blank forming machine and a gluing machine such as are in general use. It will be seen that there is little or no waste of material in the formation of my box, both the box and cover forming blank and the cell-forming blank being substantially rectangular in shape. The cellular inserts may also be formed froma continuous tubular member of any desired configuration. The box and cellular inserts may be made from a variety of materials, such as paper or fiber board and are sturdily reinforced at all points of strain. If the paper material is of good quality, the box can be made sufficiently strong to serve uses where wood and metal boxes only have been used heretofore. The box may be made in a large variety of pleasing designs so as to display the contents in an attractive and advantageous manner.

While certain novel features of the invention have been disclosed and are pointed out in the annexed claims, it will be understood that various omissions, substitutions and changes may be made by those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit of the invention.
