METHOD OF APPLYING LACE AND LIKE ORNAMENTAL EDGING TO BOXES Filed May 12, 1948 2 SHEETS-SHEET 2 INVENTOR MILFORD E. FULLER BY w:
AGENTS Patented June 10, 1952 METHOD OF APPLYING LACE AND LIKE ORNAMENTAL EDGING TO BOXES Milford p-Edward Fuller signor to Vickers-Ar London, England, asmstrongLimited, London,
England, a British company Application May 12, 1948, Serial No. 26,702 In Great Britain May 20, 1947 This invention relates to a method of applying lace edging or like ornamental addition to boxes on banding or stripping machines. In the production of fancy boxes on banding machines, a lace top edging may be applied by gluing, on its under surface, the plain edgeof the lace edging unwound from a roll; overlapping the unglued top surface of this edge of the lace by the glued band which forms the body covering the box, and wrapping the two together on to the box blank as in the ordinary operation of banding. This is the general method of lacing a box on this type of machine, and is in common use. The resulting product is however unsatisfactory in that the lace edging necessarily lies flat contiguous to the walls of the box end even after folding down does not satisfactorily lie at right angles to the side wall flush with the top edges, the result desired. These top edges still expose the raw material, as they remain uncovered, and the plain edge of the lace lying under the covering band, forms a visible ridge round the sides of the box towards the top edges, which spoils the external appearance of the box.
The present invention provides a method whereby banded and laced boxes may be produced free from these defects, and with the lace applied in the desired manner; directly off the machine as before, with the band covering the box exactly as in plain banding and as if the lace edging were not present, whereby an entirely satisfactory laced box is produced.
According to the present invention covering material for boxes comprises a length of normal e. g. plain material and a length of ornamental material having a lace or other decorative part adapted to be folded over inside the boxes, the two lengths of material being united together by marginal parts, the marginal part of the ornamental material being folded inwardly along a crease relative to its associated lace or equivalent decorative part.
According to the method of producing the product of the present invention a marginal part of the lace or equivalent edging material which is to be adhered to the box covering material on a banding or stripping machine is folded inwardly relatively to the decorative or ornamental part, e. g. the lace part, which is to be turned inside the container, so that the free ornamental or lace part meets the covering material along a line spaced within the adjacent edge of the normal covering material, 1. e. along the inner edge of the said marginal part when joined to the covering material, and the two materials adhered together at their contacting marginal parts.
In carrying the invention into practice the said inward folding of the marginal part of the ornamental material is efi'ected prior to the application of the adhesive to the covering material and 1 Claim. (Cl. 93-57) the ornamental material, the covering material and the ornamental material thereupon being fed through the adhesive means with the inturned marginal part of the ornamental material 00- planar with the covering material, so that the face of the inturned marginal part of the ornamental material remote from the lace or the like is coated with the adhesive simultaneously with the covering material, and the fold or longitudinal crease joining the lace or the like to its integral marginal part is disposed a short distance inside the double edge which has been formed by uniting such marginal part to the co-operating marginal part of the covering material.
The covering material and the ornamental material can be fed to the coating means by suitable guides prior to application to the box blank, the amalgamated covering material'and ornamental material being wrapped on to the box blank as a united strip with the lace on top of the amalgamated bend of the two lengths of material.
The box is now handed and turned over in the ordinary way, which places the lace edging directly in the desired position with the double thickness amalgamated marginal parts projecting beyond the rim of the box, and at the same time the band of amalgamated material covers the edges of the rim of the box as in plain banding. Still further, the outer side covering of the box is also unaffected by the presence of the lace because the double thickness marginal part is now turned inside the box so as to overhang and lie against the marginal parts of the upper portions of the wall of the box with the lace however, folding -down inwardly from the rim of the box.
In order that the invention may be clearly understood and readily carried into effect, drawings are appended hereto illustrating somewhat diagrammatically an embodiment thereof, and wherein,
Figure 1 is a plan view of a segment of edging material creased to produce a marginal part adapted to receive the adhesive.
Figure 2a, is a top plan view of the piece of ornamental material folded along its crease so that the marginal part adapted to receive the adhesive lies beneath the ornamental or lace simulating part.
Figure 2b is a transverse sectional view of the folded ornamental material of Figure 2a Figure 3 is a broken sectional elevation illustrating the relationship of the covering material and ornamental material relative to an adhesive applying roller.
Figure 4 is a .plan view showing the ornamental strip united to the covering material.
Figure 5 is a broken sectional elevation showing the united covering material and ornamental strip positioned ready for application to a box blank.
Figure 6 is a broken sectional elevation showing the manner in which the ornamental or lace simulating portion is folded inwardly relatively to the box after the covering material has been united to the box.
Figure 7 is a broken perspective view looking at the inside of a box and showing the ornamental or lace simulating portion in the position in which the box comes off the appropriate ma-' chine, and
Figure 8 is also a broken perspective view-looking at the inside of the box and showing the manner in which the ornamental or lace simulating portion is turned into the box.
Referring to the drawings, the ornamental or lace simulating material adapted to form edging for the covering material I is indicated by the reference numeral 2, and as will be seen by reference to Figure 1 has a plain marginal portion 3 separated from the lace or like ornamental portion'4'by a crease 5, this crease normally being introduced by an operation which is a step in the method of the present invention, as normally the lace-edged material is not supplied with this crease.
The length of material shown in Figure 1 is fed through a folding device so that the marginal portion 3 becomes folded under the ornamental portion 4 as shown in Figure 2, and following this folding under of the marginal portion 3 the material 2 is passed with the covering material I over a gluing roller 6 as shown in Figure 3, from which it will be seen that the inwardly folded marginal portion 3 presents its face remote from the ornamental portion 4 to the gluing surface of the roller, so that the covering material I and the marginal part 3 of the ornamental material are coated simultaneously with the adhesive.
Following the aforesaid gluing operation, the lengths of material I and 2 are, by means of suitable guides, brought together so that the glued surface of the marginal portion 3 becomes opposed to the unglued surface of the covering material I and lies along a marginal portion of the material I corresponding to the width of the marginal portion 3 as shown in Figures 4 and 5, the coated marginal portion 3 being tacky at this stage so that it becomes firmly united to the covering material I, thus producing a double thickness marginal portion I along the covering material I. That is to say, the ornamental strip 2 now lies on top of the covering material strip I.
The combined lengths of material are now secured to the :box blank 8 so that the covering material I occupies the position relatively to the box blank as shown in Figure 5, from which it will be seen that the covering material I overhangs both edges of the appropriate walls of the box blank, one overhanging portion being folded under the base or other appropriate part of the box blank 8 as shown at 9 in Figure 6, whilst the double thickness portion overhanging the other edge of the blank is folded against the inner side of the blank as also shown in Figure 6.
It will be appreciated from the foregoing that the boxes can be banded and turned over in the well known manner, and this results in placing the ornamental edging 4 directly in the desired position, and at the same time the material I covers the edges of the box at the top and base as in plain banding, and further the outer-side covering of the box is also unaffected by the presence of the ornamental material as is also evident by reference to Figures 6 and 8.
An incidental advantage of the present invention is that the ornamental or fancy part 4 of the material 2 does not need to be protected from the gluing roller, and thus its natural position made determinate relative to the gluing roller, which cannot apply with the previously proposed methods of applying the ornamental material to the covering material, in which the ornamental portion 4 of the material I has to be supported upon an auxiliary roller slightly axially spaced from the gluing roller. This flexibility of position is very useful to the operator when setting up, and shortens thetime requiredv for-this purpose. i
I claim:
The method of applying plain coveringstrip and ornamental edging strip having a plain'marginal part and an ornamental remainder to boxes; said method comprising the steps of folding said edging strip lengthwiseso that said plain marginal part underlies said ornamental remainder thereof, adhesively coating the downwardly facing surface of said .plain marginal part of said edging strip and an entire surface of said plain covering strip, positioning said edging strip along an edge portion of said covering strip with the coated surface of said plain marginal part contacting the non-coated surface of said edgeportion of the plain covering strip and with said ornamental remainder of the edging strip projecting freely beyond the adjacent edge of said plain, covering strip, wrapping said plain covering strip around a box so that the adhesively secured "together plain marginal part of the edging strip and edge portionv of the covering strip project beyond the rim of the box with'the plain marginal remainder of the edging strip extending beyond the adjacent edge of the wrapped plain covering strip, cutting said plain covering strip and said edging strip tolength so that the opposite ends thereof overlap, and folding said edge portion of the .plain covering strip and said plain marginal part of the edging strip inwardly over the rim'of the box so that said edge portion of the covering strip adheres to the inside surface of the box with said ornamental remainder of the edging strip being free to be folded inwardly along with said edge portionand plain marginal part without severing of said ornamental remainder along the overlapping ends of said plain covering strip;
