Title: CONTAINER FOR PACKAGING AND UNWINDING A COIL OF WELDING WIRE
Abstract:
The invention concerns a container (1) for packaging and unwinding a coil of welding wire, which comprises a box-like body (4) having inner walls (5b) forming a polygonal periphery for accomodating a circular coil (2) of wire (3) during the transportation and the unwinding of the coil (2). The container also comprises a cover (6) at the upper end of the body (4), a bottom (26) at the lower end of the body, a retainer device (17) arranged inside the body on the coil for preventing accidental entanglement of the wire turns during the unwinding of the wire from the coil, and a wire conduit device (10) for the guidance of the wire out from the body during the unwinding. At least in some places the retainer device (17) is in contact with the inner walls of the body, especially during the unwinding. The cover (6) is flat and is placed at the top of the body both during the transportation and the unwinding of the wire (3). The wire conduit device (10) is attached to the cover during the unwinding.
