Abstract

The invention concerns a folding box comprising a box body (1) which is produced by folding and connection operations and is provided with a lid (2) which, in normal use, can only be opened by destroying a tamperproof device (11, 3, 3'). In addition, the lid is also stuck by at least one security section (4, 4') divided by weakening lines (5) in the region of the adhering surface. Manipulation of the security sections leads to irreversible severing of the weakening lines, which is easily visible from the exterior. It is thus impossible to evade the tamperproof device in order to reach the contents of the packaging.

Description

BOX OF GUARANTEE CLOSURE

The invention relates to a package comprising a Garantiever- circuit according to the preamble of claim. 1

Such packages are normally made of cardboard, of plastics material or of a laminate of different materials. To open the package the Garantievor¬ must destroy direction, which is a simple perforation, can be a tear-off tab or a Ver¬ sealing action. The guarantee function of Verpackun¬ gen, whether the packaging has remained untouched since the initial filling and sealing by the manufacturer so the display, plays especially for sensitive goods such as pharmaceuticals Verpackungs¬ an increasing role. The previously known devices guarantee indicate only whether the packaging has been opened in a normal manner or not. Especially with box bodies, which are made by folding and gluing operations, but there is a risk that the warranty device is bypassed by tampering. Thus, bonded parts can for example be cut with a knife and then resealed or the bonding can be achieved by supplying heat.

It is therefore an object of the invention to provide a package of the type mentioned, in addition to the conventional warranty her¬ device to display intentional tampering with the package. This object according to the invention is solved by a package having the features in claim. 1

The connection of the lid with an edge surface in the area of ​​Verbin¬ repeatedly, if necessary weakened safety section has the consequence that a manipulation on the cover to bypass the guarantee device inevitably leads that the Si¬ cherheitsabschnitt lines at one or at a plurality of weakening or attenuation zones tears. Even with a nochma¬ then gluing the broken security section, the manipulation remains visible immediately because the weakening lines or zones of weakness are no longer intact.

The security section can be lax to a Sicherheits¬ which is formed integrally with the lid and which is connected to a side wall. Conversely, the safety latch can, however, also be formed integrally with a side wall and are connected to the lid. It is important in any case that the Sicherheitsab¬ cut so on the packing is arranged so that its damage is immediately apparent. An advantageous packing is obtained when the box body is designed in particular as Polye¬ the cuboid when the cover is a resealable inserted lid with a tuck-in tab, and when the lid having at least two lugs on both sides of the tuck-in tab disposed Sicherheits¬ is connected. however, the box body can also have a different configuration, and it is also conceivable that a packaging individual compartments comprising multiple lids.

Especially advantageous has proven when the zones of weakness is formed by crossing each arranged Schwächungs¬ lines. Thus, two zickzack¬ like extending lines of weakness may, for example, cross each other and thereby divide a rectangular safety latch in squares and triangles.

In addition to the cover even more together angren¬ collapsing surface portions of the box body may be connected with a cherheitsabschnitt Si¬. So respective lines of weakness could, for example in the field of adhesive flaps for the side walls of a box be installed which wür- Show unraveling a side wall immediately.

However, the security section can also be integrated directly into the cover, wherein it is connected to a region adjacent to a side wall portion of the package wall. In this way, an additional portion of material falls away to form a safety latch. With an appropriate arrangement of the safety section, the function of the cover is not affected. Manipulation on Sicher¬ uniform section but visible when integrated into the lid immediately.

The safety portion may be provided with a predetermined tear line designed as a weakened line, the bond areas, the Ver¬ surrounds entirely or partially. It would also be conceivable that additional weakening lines are arranged above the Vebindungsfläche yet.

A particularly advantageous integration of the safety distance schitts in the lid occurs when the box body as a polyhedron is formed in particular cuboid when the cover is a resealable inserted lid with a tuck-in tab, wherein at least two on both sides of the tuck-in tab disposed side walls of the Schach¬ telkörpers are provided with inwardly folded dust flaps and if at least two associated therewith Sicherheits¬ portions on the cover to the dust flaps are connected. The dust flaps are required anyway in such box bodies in general, to protect the box interior side against the outside. The connection of the dust flaps with the built-in security the lid portions in total leads to a dense and stable packing with a high guarantee security.

The frangible lines of security sections, the joints surrounded like a sickle on the dust cloth and leak into the cover edges. It would also be conceivable to note form connect at one or more locations, wherein the frangible lines surround the adhesive dots circularly.

The line of weakness and / or the weakened zone might be at least partially formed by recesses or be formed. A plurality of adjacently disposed recesses, for example circular openings formed thereby between each relatively narrow material webs which tear at a manipulation and / or during the initial opening. Also, a combination of recesses, straight or intersecting lines of weakening, perforations, etc. would of course conceivable.

The connection of the safety section with other Ab¬ cut of the box body is preferably carried out by gluing. In certain cases, however, a connection by staples or weldable materials by welding would be conceivable.

The box body is preferably together with the Sicher¬ uniform portions from a single blank. The Grundzu¬ cut can be punched in this way in a single operation. but it is also readily conceivable that the safety sections are separate material blanks, which are glued to the type of a seal on critical parts of the package.

Embodiments of the invention are illustrated in the drawings and will be described in more detail below. Show it:

Figure 1 is an inventive package before sealing erstmali¬ gene, Figure 2 shows the packaging according to figure 1 in the closed state,

3 shows the package of Figure 2 after the initial opening

Figure 4 kung an alternative embodiment of a packaging,

Figure 5 th, another embodiment of a package with integrated into the lid Sicherheitsabschnit¬,

Figure 6 shows the packaging according to Figure 5 in the closed state,

7 shows the packaging according to FIG 6 after the initial opening,

8 shows an alternative Ausfuhrungsbespiel a packaging in the closed state, and

9 shows a further embodiment of a packaging in the closed state.

In Figure 1, a parallelepiped-shaped box body 1 is darge provides, which is made of a single material blank, beispiels¬ example of cardboard. The longitudinal side walls 8 and 8 'are provided with the aid of internal adhesive tabs 9 with the transverse side walls 7 and 7' are bonded. The lid 2 is formed as inserted lid with a tuck-in tab 6 and hingedly connected to the longitudinal side wall 8 '. The transverse side walls 7 and 7 'are connected to dust flaps 10 and 10' is provided, which ensure a certain sealing after the initial opening. The dust flaps are folded inwardly and then extend substantially parallel to the closed-lid Senen. 2

On the cover 2 are laterally and at right angles to tab 6 Einsteck¬ safety lugs 4 and 4 'are arranged. This safety tabs zigzag crossing Schwä¬ are chung lines 5 is mounted, which, although mechanically weaken the security tabs, but not completely divide and form which actual weakening zones.

Between the cover and the two safety flaps 4 and 4 'each extending a predetermined tear line 3 and 3'. Also on the long side wall 8, a predetermined breaking point 11 is provided, which forms together with the frangible lines 3 and 3 'the eigent¬ Liche guarantee device.

For closing the package according to Figure 1, the tuck-in tab is inserted 6 behind the longitudinal side wall 8 and the inside of the predetermined breaking point 11 is bonded to the flap Einsteck¬. At the same time the two are Sicherheits¬ lugs 4 and 4 'on the transverse side walls 7 and 7' are folded over and bonded there over the entire surface.

For initial opening this packing the predetermined breaking point must be pressed 11 and the lids are then moved in the opening direction, the frangible lines 3 and 3 'to tear. As can be seen from Figure 3, there remain the safety lugs 4 and 4 'on the transverse side walls. By re-plugging of the lid, however, the packaging wie¬ derum can be closed, then tion without Garantiefunk¬. Is in the sealed package according to Figure 2 made an attempt to lift for example a Sicherheits¬ plate with a knife, this leads to an input of tear lines of weakness and, due to the crossed arrangement to a breaking of individual sections. The originally existing regular and unbroken pattern of weakening lines can not be produced at a readhesion.

It would of course also conceivable, instead of the two dusters 10 and 10 ', the securing tabs to the transverse side walls 7 and 7' to be arranged and to stick to the top of the lid. 2 In addition, those portions could also be on the transverse side walls 7 and 7 'are provided with weakening lines visible from the outside, which are glued to the glue flaps. 9 Also a manipulation at these points would then be displayed visually.

Figure 4 shows an alternative embodiment consisting of a round container 12, whose opening is sealed with a lid. 13 while lateral aprons 14, which are provided with diagonal score lines 16 are used for the bonding of the lid. The normal opening of the lid is carried out at a predetermined breaking opening 15 which can be pressed and optionally aufge¬ expanded. Access to the package contents is thus only possible by manipulation of the skirts 14, bypassing the break-opening 15th Such manipulation would, however, by tearing of the Schwä¬ monitoring lines 16 displayed.

Figures 5 to 7 show similar to Figures 1 to 3 show a rectangular package with an inserted lid. The packaging is also provides from a single blank herge¬. In contrast to the previous embodiment, the safety sections 17 and 17 ', but directly integrated into the lid. 2 This safety sections are each formed by a single frangible line 18, which extends approximately like a sickle and the border at both ends in the Seiten¬ runs 20 of the lid. The dust flaps 10 and 10 'are formed somewhat longer than in the embodiment according to FIG 1. The safety sections 17 and 17' are applied to an adhesive surface 19 with the dust flaps 10 and 10 'adhered, wherein appreciated that the frangible lines 18, 18' directly in the vicinity of the bonding surfaces are disposed and surrounding.

The insertion flap 6 is adhered to the predetermined breaking point 11 in the same manner with the longitudinal side wall 8 as in the embodiment according to FIG 2. The predetermined breaking point 11 consists of one perforation on the long side wall 8 and on the insertion tab 6, wherein the perforations deckungs¬ are equal. The frangible lines 18 are clearly visible on the closed package according to Figure 6 from the outside. The lateral gluing with the dust flaps results in a particularly dense packing. A lateral access to the package contents, such as by spreading of the lid 2 and the side wall 7 is not possible. pulation a corresponding Mani¬ would lead to a complete or partial tearing of the frangible line 18th The safety sections 17 and 17 'could additionally be provided yet with intersecting Schwächungs¬ lines, as to the safety lugs 4 and 4' is in Figure 1 of the case. For proper opening of the package according to Figure 7 has the predetermined breaking point 11 to be pressed and the lid 2 has in the opening direction to be swung open. The Soll¬ tear tear lines 18 'which is facilitated by the sickle-like configuration for the safety sections 17 and 17th After the initial opening of the inserted lid with the insertion tab 6 can be closed again without being affected by the broken frangible lines 18 the function of the packaging. The remaining on the lid 2 Aussparun¬ gen 21, 21 'are closed by the lid Staub¬ overlap 10 and 10' closed.

8 shows an embodiment which is largely identical to that according to Figures 5 to 7. The frangible lines 18 but 8 facing the top region are formed by incisions only straight in the side wall of the Stirn¬. In the remaining area, the line of weakness is formed by successively arranged recesses 22 in the form of circular openings. The recesses are so angeord¬ net that they are covered by the underlying duster. Between the recesses material webs 23 are formed which tear when opening the lid 2, but also in an unauthorized manipulation.

In the embodiment according to FIG 9 Aus¬ are also arranged savings 22, but not only for forming a defined line of weakness, but to form a larger zone of weakness. The openings lie teil¬, in the area of ​​the splices. At a proper opening of the packaging material webs are only those tear surrounding the splice, which are therefore not fixed to the underlying dust flaps. When tampering with the side edges of the cover 2, also other material webs can tear.
