Patented Oct. 12, 1943- UNITED STATES PATENT" OFFICE 2,331,543 p l I 1 BOTTLE WRAPPING DEVICE Walter A. Emery, Wayne, Nebr. Application July 12, 1940,- Serial No. 345,130

4 Claims.

My invention pertains to a device for applying a wrapper to a bottle.

a device which will receive the wrapper and, in-

cidental upon downward motion of the bottle,

will cause the wrapper to be affixed snugly against the bottle sides, and leaving a certain visible area remaining so that the height of the bottle contents can be observed. I

A further object of my invention is to provide an arrangement of this character which includes resilient means which are attached to suitable frameworks so that such resilient means will snugly carry the wrapper upwardly around the sides of the bottle and will then compress the wrapper upon such sides.

A further object of my invention is to provide an arrangement wherein a series of wrappers can be attached to a certain form of the device and wherein the wrappers will be removed individually therefrom.

A further object of my invention is to provide a very simple structure which requires a ,minimum of parts and can be manufactured at a very reasonable cost.

With these and other objects in view, my invention consists in the construction, arrangement, and combination of the various parts of my device, whereby the objects contemplated are attained, as hereinafter more fully set forth, pointed out in my claims, and illustrated inthe accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of the device and taken in section along the lines l--I of Figure 2,

Figure 2 is a plan view of the arrangement, Figure 3 is a developed view of the wrapper,

Figure 4 is a side elevation of a bottle after the wrapper is attached thereto,

Figure 5 is a detail of a slightly modified form, Figure 6 is a modified form, Figure 7 is a plan view of Figure 6, and Figure 8 is a sectional view taken along the lines 88 of Figure 7.

The wrapper employed in my invention is indicated by'the character l0 (see Fig. 3) and includes the central restricted portion H and the end portions I 2 having the extending marginal flaps l3. Thewrapper itself can be made of thin,

slightly absorbent paper which is softenough for the purpose intended. The device for attaching the wrapper comprises the circular or otherwise shaped base member M in which is formed the square recess l5. Pivoted within the recess [5 and upon the bottom l6 thereof are the respective frames I l and I8. The frames I! can be made of suitable, fairly heavy wire material which comprises a pair of spaced parallel bars, l9, which continue into the integral rightangled portions 20 which, in turn, are bent into the U-shaped formation 2|. The member 2| (see Fig. 1) extends upwardly substantially .at right angles to the plane of the members l9 and terminates into the arcuate portion 22. Similarly, the framel8 includes a pair of parallel side bars 23 which extend into the portions 24 which lie adjacent to the members 20; and the members 24 also merge into the U-shaped portion .25 which is slightly less in width than the member 2| so that it can pivot within the member '2 l, and the member 25 also extendsinto the upper arcuate portion 26, which portion 26 is pivoted at 2'! to a thin plate 28 which can be circular and which plate 28, however, rests upon the arcuate portion 22.

A further rubbermember 29 is attached above the plate. 28, which I rubber member is in the shape 'of ,a spherical segment and is adapted to follow the circular contour beneath the base of the bottle. The members 20 and 24 are adapted to freely pivot within the staples 30 which straddle these members and hold themagainst the base l6. Suitably attached between the spaced bars 19 and 23 are a series of resilient and fairly loosely engaged attenuated rubber members 3| which can be fitted in suitable slots in the bars or can be attached ,in any other manner. The distance between the pairs of bars l9 or 23 is slightly greater than the bottle diameter. The bottle is indicated by the character v32.

In using the device, the wrapper! is first placed in the position shown in Fig. l'with the portion ll lying directly above the rubber arcuate member 29 and with the portions I2 lying against the frameworks, l1 and 18 as shown. The bottle 32 is then pushed firmly downwardly in the direction of the arrow 33 which causes the arms 2| and 25 to rotate in'the direction of 3! will carry the portions l2 upwardly and around the bottle, the resiliency of such bands serving to firmly aflix the paper member about the sides of the bottle.

Since the bottle is usually always moistened, the portions I2 and H! of the wrapper will snugly adhere to the same, and when the bottle is drawn out of the device it will appear as shown in Fig. 4 with the wrapper attached thereto. A space will be remaining at 36 between the flaps l3 to allow visibility of the bottle contents. A slightly modified form is shown in Fig. 5 in which, instead of employing a series of bands 3|, a single thin, highly resilient diaphragm member-31 is employed, which fills the entire space between the bars 23 or IS. The operation is the same inthis type of structure. It will be noted from Fig. 1 that the sides of the cavity l5 permit a normal angular positioning of the bars l9 and 23 so that they will not be required to pass through too great an angle, thereby insuring a firm pressure at the top of the movement.

Figures 6 'to 8 inclusive illustrate a further form of the apparatus in which several wrappers can be placed in the device at one time and removed individually. In this arrangement the parallel bars 33 extend into the portions 39 which are pivoted within the sockets 40, and the portions 39 extend into the U-shaped portions 4| the top portion of which is received within the suitable rectangular keepers 42 (see Fig. 6). Similarly a further pair of parallel bars 43 extend into the portions 44 which are pivoted within the sockets 45 and which portions 44 extend into the 'U-shaped portion 46 which portion is adapted to be received within the U-shaped member, and correspondingly being of lesser width. The sockets 40 and 45 ar attached to an elongated base plate 41 which, in turn, is attached to the base ring 48 to provide a solid support. The keeper members 42 are attached to a further plate 49 and attached to the oval plate 49 at 50 is a resilient spring member extending into the spring arms 5| and which extend into the upwardly positioned portions 52 which portions 52 extend into the substantially horizontally positioned extremities 53 which are of reduced size and which terminate in the comparatively fine points 54. Attached to the bars 48 and 33 are a series of fairly thick rubber flaps 55 which are attached along the bars at 55 and which flaps 55 extend inwardly a fairly substantial distance. Attached to the flaps 55 also are the rubber bands 51 which are attached'to the band 58 which band 53 passes beneath the plate 49 and the spring member. A further pair of bands 59 are also attached to the flaps 55. This form of device is used in the following manner: Several piles of wrapper member ID are laid upon the plate 49 with the center portions H resting on this plate. The several plies (see Fig, 8) are placed in this position and the spring-urged members 5| are urged upwardly and when the spring members are released the points '54 willbe barely touching the edges of the central portion ll of the wrapper III, thereby serving to hold the same in fixed position. The 'wrapperscan be adjusted so that the points are barely touching in the manner described along the edges thereof. The larger expanded portions of the wrapper will then lie as shown in Figures 6 and '7 and against the flaps 55.

When the bottle 32 is thrust downwardly, the U-shaped arm 41 and 43 will correspondingly separate, bringing the bars 38 and 43 towards each other and, at the same time, bringing the portions I2 towards each other and about the bottle 32. The flaps 55 are of sufiicient width to insure that a snug engagement is effected. since they cover an area wider than the bottle itself, and due to the slight bend of the arms 38 and 43 at 60 and since the pivots 45 and 40 are separated, the arms 38 and 43 will rise to a substantially vertical position, thereby causing the side portions l3 of the wrapper ID to be firmly afiixed about the bottle. As the bottle is removed from the device, the wrapper, which is attached, will tear away from the point 54 leaving the next outer wrapper in position for the next operation. The keepers 42 limit outward as well as inward movement of the U-shaped "members 41 and 46, thereby maintaining the arrangement in cooperative position at all times and in proper balance. The torsion spring 6| brings the arms back to position.

It will now be seen that I have provided a simplified bottle wrapping device and wrapper which includes all of the advantages above mentioned and in my objects.

Somechanges may be made in the construction and arrangement of the parts of my invention without departing from the real spirit and purpose of my invention, and it is my intention to cover by my claims any modified forms of structure or use of mechanical equivalents which may be reasonably included within their scope.

I claim as my invention:
