Abstract

The invention relates to decorative caps for bottle tops. The decorative caps are pressed onto the screw caps with a positive fit, said screw caps being provided with axially parallel studs. Screw caps with varying numbers of studs are available on the market and up until now, this has created problems for the producers of decorative caps, who had to produce different tools for manufacturing the decorative caps accordingly. According to the invention, the decorative caps are produced with a considerably smaller number of axially parallel studs (13-20). These easily-yielding studs each fit into the areas between the studs of the screw cap.

Description

1 decorative cap for bottle closure

technical field

The invention relates to an ornamental cap for a bottle closure, especially a screw closure for bottles of sparkling wine. This consists of plastic decorative caps are positively and torsionally securely connected to the metal made screw cap.

From the patent DE 28 16 811, a bottle closure is known which consists of a cup-shaped screw cap, and a form-fit associated cover. The patent is characterized in that the cover at the bottom has a collar which projects beyond the threaded portion of the screw cap and is provided with an inwardly projecting lip. This lip is intended to rest directly on the bottle neck to prevent the penetration of dirt.

In order to open the bottle against the holding force of a Abreißringes, a considerable torque must be applied by hand, which must be transferred from the covering or decorative cap on the screw cap. In order to improve the entraining effect between the cover and the screw cap, it is proposed to provide the collar with axial ribs on the inside which engage in corresponding notches of the threaded part of the screw cap.

The market screw caps made of thin light sheet metal are widely used, which have an area with a lot of axially parallel ridges and notches above the threaded area. Depending on the manufacturer, for example, 38 or 44 ridges are common. There are also other bar numbers.

For the manufacturer of decorative caps that are molded from a thermoplastic material, yet the difficulty that he had to adapt the bridge numbers of the cap manufacturer with its rather expensive injection molding tools surrendered. A further disadvantage arises in handling the fact that very large similarity of the closures themselves must be careful in that, for example, ornamental caps 38 are not webs pressed on threaded caps with notches 44 and vice versa. 2 of the Invention

The inventor has set himself the task to create a decorative cap which fits form-fitting manner on various conventional screw caps and with these forms a bottle closure, which can transmit the scheduled torques safely. According to the invention this object is achieved in that the decorative cap has a substantially smaller number of ridges on the inside of the hollow cylindrical area, which settle between the lands of the screw cap.

Description of the Drawings

An embodiment of the invention is based on Fig. 1 and 2 of the drawing explained.

Fig. 1 shows the interior view of the ornamental cap,

Fig. 2 is a partial sectional side view.

The novel decorative cap has a hollow cylindrical portion 1, which merges towards the top in an approximately halbkugelfόrmigen region. 2 The domed cover 3 is stiffened by six radial ribs 4, 5, 6, 7, 8,. 9

Of an equatorial ring 10 are meridian like webs 11, 12 guided upward. To increase the skid resistance, such webs are spread around on the surface. In the cylindrical area of ​​the inner space of eight axially parallel webs 13 are - 20 are provided which are so elastic that they become wedged in the nearest grooves of the screw cap.

industrial applicability

There is not expected in the market for screw caps for beverage bottles that manufacturers could agree to a specific number of axially parallel webs, it is a great relief for the bottling plant or the manufacturer of complete closures when a single, appropriate to different screw caps is decorative cap available.

The novel decorative cap is intended to be produced in large quantities and used in the beverage industry. It is thus cost-saving continues to be ruled out as confusion when using different screw caps. LIST OF REFERENCE NUMBERS

a hollow cylindrical part hemispherical domed cap region - 9 radial webs equatorial ring 12 meridian like webs - 20 axially parallel webs
