Title (EN) ARTICLE CARRIER WITH INTEGRAL KEEL AND LOCKING STRUCTURE
(FR) PORTE-ARTICLE A STRUCTURE DE COHERENCE ET DE BLOCAGE INTEGREE
Abstract:
(EN) A wraparound carton and blank (10) for carrying a plurality of containers, for example, yoghurt cartons, comprises top (16), base (12, 20) and a pair of oppositely disposed side walls (14, 18) interconnecting said top and said base wherein said base comprises a pair of panels (12, 20) interconnected by panel interlocking means for securing together said first and second panels in overlapping relationship, said first panel (12) comprising a locking tab (32, 34, 36) struck from said first panel, said second panel (20) including a retaining tab (52, 54, 56) defining a locking aperture (60, 64, 68) struck from said second panel and wherein the retaining tab is displaced out of the plane of said second panel to receive said locking tab through the locking aperture and abuts a portion of said locking tab characterised in that said locking tab and retaining tab are adapted to provide a keel structure between adjacent rows of containers to minimise the relative movement between adjacent containers.
(FR) L'invention concerne un carton et une découpe d'emballage (10) permettant de transporter une pluralité de contenants, par exemple des pots de yaourt, lequel carton comprend un haut (16), une base (12, 20) et deux parois latérales (14, 18) opposées joignant le haut et la base. Ladite base est constituée de deux pans (12, 20) réunis par des éléments de verrouillage de pans permettant d'assujettir le premier et le second pans en relation de chevauchement. Le premier pan (12) comporte une languette de blocage (32, 34, 36) découpée dans ledit pan, et le second pan (20) comporte une languette de retenue (52, 54, 56) définissant une ouverture de blocage (60, 64, 68) découpéee dans le second pan. Ladite languette de retenue est décalée par rapport au plan du second pan de manière à recevoir la languette de blocage à travers l'ouverture de blocage, et elle vient buter contre une partie de cette languette de blocage. Le carton de l'invention est caractérisé en ce que les languettes de blocage et de retenue sont conçues pour former une structure de cohérence entre des rangées adjacentes de contenants afin de minimiser le mouvement relatif entre des contenants adjacents.
