l TWO-BLANK CORRUGATED BOARD CONTAINER BACKGROUND AND OBJECTS OF THE INVENTION The present invention relates in general to packaging and shipping cases or containers and especially to packaging and shipping cases fonned of at least two blanks in a manner to conserve board medium by reducing waste and provide increased stacking strength. As a particular example, the invention relates to cases formed of two blanks of corrugated board arranged to define a four-sided tube which may be closed by a pair of hinged end or side closure flaps.

Heretofore, one common way of fabricating packaging cases to enclose and protect food products in individual cans or small containers has been to form a single blank with a plurality of foldably connected panels, hinged adhesive coated flaps, and foldably connected end panels which can be assembled into a shipping case of the desired configuration. Frequently, the blank for forming such a shipping case would include four panels foldably connected at transverse hinge lines and extending in series relation along a longitudinal axis, all of the panels having substantially the same width, designed to fonn the two pairs of horizontal walls and vertical sides,

with a pair of end panels extending laterally along a transverse axis from one of the wall-forming panels a distance equal to the longitudinal axis dimension of the next adjacent side panel. This necessarily involved great wastage of corrugated board because of the much greater width required for the blank portion forming the two end panels and their connected wall-forming panel, compared to the blank width over the remainder of the blank forming the other panels. Also, the construction of such cases from a single blank necessarily resulted in the corrugation axes of the end panels being at right angles to the corrugation axes of the side panels flanking the particular wall panel to which the end panels were con nected, thus resulting in a reduction in the stacking strength of the carton, since it would not be possible to have all four vertical sides provided with vertical corrugation axes. For example, if the wall-forming panel to which the end panels are connected is the top panel of the carton, and the corrugation axes of the two vertical side panels in' the finished container are disposed in a vertical direction, then the corrugation axes of the end panels would be horizontal and thus perpendicular to the corrugation axes of the vertical side panels.

An object of the present invention is the provision of a shipping case construction for corrugated or other board medium, formed of two basic blanks, one of which has a series of foldably connecting panels to form two vertical sidewalls and one horizontal wall of the assembled case, and the other blank having foldably connected panels forming the other horizontal wall and the two end walls of the assembled case, whereby the first blank is of a substantially uniform first width throughout its length and the second panel is of a uniform greater width than the first blank and is assembled to the first blankalong hinged flaps of the latter, to minimize the wastage of board medium in the fabrication of the shipping case.

Another object of the present invention is the provision of a shipping case as described in the immediately preceding paragraph, wherein the first blank has three foldably connected panels forming a horizontal panel and two vertical panels of the assembled case, and the second blank is a three-paneled blank forming the other horizontal panel and the ,two end panels of the finished case.

Another object of the present invention is the provision of a shipping case as described in the preceding paragraph, wherein each of said two blanks are formed of corrugated board, the two blanks being assembled together by securing a hinged flap at the edge of one of the vertical wall panels of the first blank along a free edge of the horizontal wall panel of the second blank with the corrugation axes of the first blank disposed perpendicular to the corrugation axes of the second blank, to give increased stacking strength to the assembled shipping case.

Other objects, advantages and capabilities of the present invention will become apparent from the following detailed description, taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings illustrating preferred embodiments of the invention.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF TWO PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS Referring to the drawings, wherein like reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several figures, and particularly to FIGS. 1, 2 and 3'illustrating a first embodiment of the present invention, the shipping case is indicated generally by the reference character 10, and comprises a first triple panel blank 11 and a second triple blank 12. In the illustrated embodiment, each of the blanks 11 and 12 is formed of corrugated cardboard, although it will be appreciated that other board media may be used if desired. The first triple panel blank 11 is scored to form a large rectangular panel 13 designed to provide the bottom wall, or one of the horizontal walls, of the erected case, joined along score lines 14 and 15 extending transversely relative to the longitudinal axis of the blank to second and third panels 16 and 17 designed to form the vertical sidewalls of the erected case 10. Thus, the three panels 16, 13 and 17 are arranged in series along the major longitudinal axis of the, blank 11. Joined to the transverse outer edges of the panels 16 and 17 relatively remote from the bottom panel 13 along transverse score lines 18 and 19 are transverse hinge flaps 20 and 21 to form adhesive flaps or glue panels securing the case in erected form. Also, other hinged adhesive or securing flaps are formed along the lateral edges of the panels 16, 13 and 17, as illustrated by flaps 22a, 23a associated with panel 16, flaps 22b, 23b associatedwith panel 13 and flaps 22c, 23c associated with panel 17, all joined to their associated panels along score lines indicated collectively at 24 and 25.

The second blank 12 is also a triple panel blank, and comprising a first rectangular panel 25 corresponding to the panel 13 and designed to become the top panel of the erected case 10, together with panels 26 and 27 joined to the'panel 25 by score lines 28, 29, arranged transversely to the major longitudinal axis of the blank 12. In the illustrated embodiment, the corrugation axes of the corrugations or fluting of the blank I I are arranged parallel to the major longitudinal axis of the blank, indicated by the arrows 30, while the corrugation axes of the corrugations of the second blank 12, indicated by the arrows 31, which also parallel the major longitudinal axis of the blank 12,-are arranged perpendicular to the corrugation axes of the blank 11.

As illustrated in FIG. 1, the blank 11 may be initially assembled with the blank 12 by adhesively securing, or otherwise fastening in any conventional manner, the transverse hinge flap 21 of the blank 11 to the marginal portion along the long side of the panel 25 of blank 12in underlapping relation to the marginal edge of the panel 25, and stored in flat form to be erected by securing the other flap 21 to panel 25 immediately prior to being filled, or, if desired, the two blanks ll, 12, after being separately formed, can be assembled by folding the blank 11 into a channel-shaped configuration as illustrated in FIG. 2 with the two transverse flaps 20, 21 folded inwardly towards each other in parallelism with the bottom panel 13, and both of these transverse flaps 20, 21 may be substantially simultaneously adhered or otherwise suitably fastened to the two marginal edge portions of the top panel 25 of blank 12 as illustrated, to form a rectangular tube which is open at opposite ends. For convenient storage purposes, this assembled tube may be stored in flat condition with the two panels 16, 13 lying in one common plane, and the assembly of panel 17 secured by flap 21 with the panel 25 folded about the transverse score line into overlying condition flattened against the panels 16, 13.

Following end loading of the contents into the case when in the condition illustrated in FIG. 3, the lateral hinge flaps 22a, b and c and 230, b and c may be then folded inwardly at right angles to their adjoining wall panels, and the end panels 26, 27 folded downwardly and adhered to the inwardly folded lateral hinge flaps to close the packaging and shipping case.

It will be appreciated that when the case if formed from two blanks, as above-described, a size of stock sheet from which the blanks 11 are to be cut can be selected which has an appropriate width, for example, corresponding to the width from the free edge of flaps 220, b and c to the free edge of flaps 23a, b and c or an even multiple thereof, or stock sheets having a width corresponding to the distance from the long free edge of flap 20 to the long free edge of flap 21 or an even multiple thereof, to effect significant saving in the material required to form the cases, by greatly reducing the waste of board area compared with construction with similar cases from a single blank. For example, if a single blank were employed having the configuration of the perimeter of the two assembled blanks ll, 12 of FIG. I, it is apparent that a sheet having a width corresponding to the distance from the outer long edge 27a of end panel 27 to the corresponding edge 26a of end panel 26 would have to be used, and that there would be large waste areas cut out from the stock sheet at each side of the blank corresponding to the arc defined by the distance between the outer long edges of the flaps 2211-220 to the edge 26a of flap 26 along one axis and the distance between the score lines I8 and 19 along the other axis.

Furthermore, by use of the construction illustrated in FIGS. 13, wherein the vertical walls formed by the side panels 16 and 17 and by the end panels 26 and 27 all have their corrugation axes or flutings running vertically, considerable increase in stacking strength is insured. The efi'ect of this is to provide four vertical comer posts at each of the comers of the case, formed by the adjoining vertical edges of the panels 16, 17, 26 and 27 and the glue panels or securing flaps 22a and c and 23a and c. This arrangement also permits a completely smooth extcrior with uninterrupted panels on all sides and no joints, slots, or discontinuities which would provide a snag line when one case slides across another during any palletizing operation. Also, the configuration of the two blank subassemblies is such that no extra strips or segments of material are required to be added to serve as hinges. Thus, the composite blank design illustrated in FIG. 1 provides six smooth continuous dusttight exterior panels with vertical reinforcement at all four corners providing a seal and insuring maximum stacking strength.

A variation is illustration in FIGS. 4 and 5, wherein the blanks, panels, score lines and flaps corresponding to those of FIG. 1 are indicated by the primes of the reference characters employed in FIG. 1, but wherein the dimensions of the rectangular panels are changed slightly to provide a side loaded case. Thus, for example, as an illustrative example, the panels 16', l3, I7, 25', 26' and 27' are of such configuration that the panels 13' and 25' define the horizontal bottom and top walls, the panels 16' and 17' define the end walls, and the panels 26 and 27 define the sidewalls. This pair of panels 11, 12 is assembled in the same manner as the panels 11, 12 of the first described embodiment to provide a tube which is open at both HAW sides, as illustrated in FIG. 5, which can be side loaded with the food product, after which the side panels 26' and 27' are secured to the glue panels or flaps 22a'-22c and 23a'-23c'.

Yet another form embodying the principles of the preceding embodiments is illustrated in FIG. 6, wherein. the case is formed of a first blank 32 having rectangular wall-forming panels 32A, 32B and 32C connected by transverse score lines, and two half panels 32D and 32E collectively forming the top wall, each having a tuck flap 32F on the end thereof. The corrugations of this blank 32 preferably run in the direction of the arrow 32 so that the corrugation axes of both the side panels 32A and 32C run vertically. Lateral edges of these panels also include glue panels or flaps indicated at 32A, 32B, and 32C. In this particular case, two end panel blanks of substantially rectangular configuration, indicated at 33 and 34, are provided, each defining a rectangular panel 33A, 34A, having a height corresponding to that of the wall panels 32A, 32C and a width corresponding to the width of the bottom panel 328, and having a pair of hinge flaps 33B, 348 at the top edge of the panels 33A, 34A having a tuck slot 33C, 34C therebetween into which the tuck flaps 32F are to be inserted upon closure of the top of the case. The two end panels 33A, 34A are oriented so that their corrugation axes run vertically, as indicated by arrows 35, and glued or otherwise fastened to the inwardly folded flaps 34A, 32B and 32C of the blank 32 as illustrated in FIG. 6, providing a case which may be top loaded. After it is filled with the goods to be packaged, the two top panel sections 320, 32E are folded inwardly over the top of the case and the flaps 32F tucked into the slots 33C, 34C to secure the top in closed condition.

Again, this construction produces a case which has great stacking strength, since all of the vertical side and end panels 32A, 32C, 33A and 34A have their corrugation axes or flutings running vertically, and reinforcement is provided at each of the four comers by the flaps 32A, 32C, which also have vertically extending corrugation axes. Also, due to the configuration of the blanks employed for this case, avoidance of waste of the stock material is achieved producing vast savings over the cost of material which would be involved in forming a top loaded case from a single blank having the composite configuration of the blanks 32A, 33 and 34 of this embodiment.
