'I'IPPED CIGAR AND METHOD OF FORMING THE SAME Filed July 1, 1937 INVENTOR B HERBERT A.B RNS ATTORNEY Patented July 25, 1939 PATENT OFFICE TIPPED CIGAR THE AND METHOD OF FORMING SAME.
Herbert A. Burns, Forest Hills, N. Y., assignor to International Cigar Machinery Company, a
corporation of New Jersey Application July 1, 1937, Serial No. 151,323
7 Claims.
This invention relates to the manufacture of cigars and has particular reference to tipped cigars with or without included filters and to methods of producing the same.
While cigars having various smoking attachments have been known, such articles have never been satisfactory because of the complexity of construction, and the high costs of manufacture. According to the present invention, it is proposed to make tipped cigars which may or may not have filters incorporated therein adjacent the head or smoking end, which cigars will be practical to produce and also be not much more expensive to manufacture than the average cigar.
In the tipped cigars of my invention, the tips and filters actually tend to strengthen the smoking end by helping it to preserve its original shape, and make it more difiicult for a smoker to break or bite through the binder and wrapper leaves of the cigar. This arrangement also insures the smoker a more enjoyable, cool, clean smoke, by reason of the fact that the filter screens out impurities, gum and volatile products of tobacco combustion. Furthermore, this construction effectively prevents particles of the filler tobacco entering the smokers mouth and causing him inconvenience and annoyance.
It is an object of this invention to provide a novel tipped cigar and a method for producing it.
It is an additional object to form a tipped cigar having an enclosed filter conforming to the taper of a cigar head and provide a method for producing this article. It is an additional object to form a tipped filter cigar in which the filter is firmly secured to the filler tobacco and in which the resulting cigar is structurally stronger because of this relationship of filter and filler.
The invention also consists in'the production of tipped cigars wherein tipping material is applied directly to the wrapper flag in order that the tip may become an integral part of the wrapper leaf when it is wrapped about a bunch. Cigars of this type may or may not have filters incorporated therein.
With these and other objects not specifically mentioned in view, the invention consists of certain constructions and combinations herein described, and then set forth in the claims hereunto appended.
In the accompanying drawing, which forms a part of this specification the same, or like, refer ence characters indicate the same, or like, parts:
Fig. 1 shows a portion of the wrapper leaf and the tipping material applied to it;
Fig. 2 is a perspective view showing the appearance of the finished cigar;
Fig. 2a is a cross sectional View of the cigar of Fig. 2;
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the filter insert for the head end of a cigar;
Fig. 4 is a perspective view showing the filter in the cigar, and also the tipping material about to be wound around the cigar;
Fig. 5 is a view similar to Fig. 4 showing the tip material applied to the cigar head; and
Fig. 6 is a view similar to Fig. 2 showing an arrangement in which the tipping material forms a cap on the end of a cigar.
In making cigars according to this invention, either long or short filler tobacco may be used with equal success. The filler is formed to proper size and rolled into bunch shape in a binder which holds it in bunch form. In order to provide means for aiding in the future enjoyment of the cigars when they are smoked filters can be incorporated with the filler prior to bunch forming. That is, a filter F is placed adjacent an end of the filler bunch charge, and while so positioned in an assembly, is enclosed in the binder which holds the assembly intact. While these filters may be made of several materials, it has been found that a thin, porous, crepe paper, folded and adapted to assume a cylindrical form, as shown in Fig. 3, is well suited 3 for this purpose. This material has many valuable characteristics for this use, since it absorbs volatile substances, separates impurities, allows free smoking by net interrupting air passages in the cigars, blocks movement of particles of tobacco into a smokers mouth, is compressible, and will take the taper or form of a finished cigar head without damaging the head, or misshaping it. If desired, other materials such as cotton wads, can be used.
Although filters F may be placed in cigars in several Ways, it has been observed that, if this type of cigar is to be practical from a point of view of production and cost it is imperative that the filters be placed in the bunch in such a way that they become substantially an integral part of the bunch and finished cigars, and at the same time perform the functions for which they were designed without blocking the air channels of the cigar, or in any way offering interference to the ultimate consumption of the cigar.
It has been found best, not to merely place the filter F adjacent an end of the filler bunch but to provide transverse serrations S on or otherwise treat the tobacco engaging face of the filter or the filter material around the edge of this face so that the filter and filler can have an interlocking efiect, and act as a strengthening means for the cigar. When'the binder and wrapper, respectively, have enclosed the filter assembly and bunch a relatively strong cigar is produced.
In Fig. 2 the invention is shown as applied to a regular headed cigar. It will be noted that filter F has been placed adjacent the filler L, and that both are surrounded by a binder B and a wrapper W (see Fig. 2a). If desired, the Wrapper W can have attached thereto, at its flag end, a length of tip material such as cork, ivory or other well known tipping mediums. In Figs. 1, 2 and 6 the tipping material T is shown applied as stated above. When the wrapper is spiralled about the bunch the tip material on the flag will also be spiralled thereon, and in this manner an unusually firm bond between the tip material, wrapper and bunch will be established. A very strong and well-tipped cigar is the natural result. A filter F may or may not be included. g
If desired, the tipping material T may be omitted entirely and a cigar similar to that shown in Figs. 1, 2 and 2a. will be formed minus the tip. When a cigar is made in this manner it is relatively impossible to tell that a filter is included in the cigar and to all outward appearance the cigar is a natural all tobacco product. When the cigar is to be smoked the wrapper covering the end of the tip is cut or pierced in the regular manner and the cigar is then ready for smoking.
This invention may also be used in the production of open headed or cheroot type smoking products in which the smoking end or head of the article remains open as shown in Figs. 4 and 5.
The joinder of filter F and filler L remains substantially the same; however. The tipping material may be attached to the outer covering or wrapper W as shown in Figs. 1 and 2 or may be applied after the wrapper W has been placed about the bunch, as shown in Figs. 4 and 5 to form the mouth tip M.
The articles above described may be varied in construction within the scope of the claims, for the particular device selected to illustrate the in-, vention is but one of many possible concrete embodiments of the same. The invention is not,
7 therefore, to be restricted to the precise details of the structure shown and described.
I claim:
1. A tipped cigar comprising filler tobacco, a binder wrapper about said filler to form a bunch, and a wrapper enclosing said bunch, said wrapper including a length of tip material secured to the flag portion, and forming an integral part of the wrapper blank as initially applied to said bunch.
2. A tipped cigar comprising filler tobacco, a binder forming said filler into a bunch, and a tipped wrapper applied about said bunch, the tip' material on said Wrapper conforming to the dimensions of the head end of the wrapper to Which it is applied and existing as an .element inspiraled and interleaved relation with the wrapper about the bunch and completely covering the head end of the cigar, constituting an integral element of the cigar as initially fabricated.
3. A wrapper for cigars comprising a section cut from a tobacco leaf of a size and shape adapting it for covering a tobacco bunch, said section having a flag formed at one end thereof, and a length of tip material cut to exact size of said flag affixed thereto, and coincident therewith.
4. A cigar wrapper comprising a long, narrow tobacco leaf section shaped to fit a cigar bunch and having aflag at one end thereof, a length of tipping material affixed to said flag and coincident therewith, said length also extending along a part of said section and arranged thereon for closely following the section when applied to a cigar bunch.
5. A cigar wrapper comprising a long, relatively narrow tobacco leaf section to fit about a cigar bunch, a length of tipping material of the exact dimensions of one end of said section and means securing said length to said end for application with the wrapper to said bunch.
6. The method of making a tipped cigarwhich consists in shaping a charge of filler tobacco to 4 approximate bunch form, rolling said charge in a binder thereby forming a bunch, applying a length of tip material to a wrapper to exactly coincide with the flag end thereof, and then.
wrapping said wrapper about the bunch with the tipped flag forming a tipped head on the. cigar, said head forming an integral part of the wrapper as initially fabricated with the cigar structure.
7. A tipped cigar comprising filler tobacco, a compressible filter device located adjacent an end of said filler element, and shaped to conform to the taper of the cigar end; constituting the mouth piece of the filler element, a
binder enclosing said filler and filter device, form reinforcing said filter mouthpiece part of the bunch.
