Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR SECURE STORAGE AND HANDLING OF ELONGATE OBJECTS
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF PERMETTANT LE STOCKAGE ET LE MANIEMENT SURS D'OBJETS ALLONGES
Abstract
(EN)
An improved packing member (230) includes a rigid interior portion (736) enclosed by a resilient exterior portion (734). The exterior portion is physically adapted to generate a force in response to, and opposing, the motion of an elongate object (808) thereover. The generated force advantageously increases in magnitude as the object moves across a packing member. In some embodiments, a frame (200) receives the improved packing members (230). In one embodiment, the frame (200) comprises two vertical side portions (220A, 220B) that receive one or more of the packing members. The frame advantageously includes a variable-positioning element (232A), so that the packing members are freely positionable along the height of the vertical side portions. In conjunction with the improved packing member, the variable positioning element enables embodiments of the present invention to be used with multiple object diameters/geometries.

L'invention concerne un emballage amélioré (230) qui comprend une partie intérieure rigide (736) enfermée dans une partie extérieure souple (734). Cette partie extérieure est physiquement adaptée pour générer une force opposée au déplacement d'un objet de forme allongée (808) sur la dite partie. L'ampleur de cette force présente l'avantage d'augmenter lorsqu'on déplace l'objet dans un emballage. Dans certains modes de réalisation de l'invention, un cadre (200) reçoit de tels emballages améliorés (230). Dans l'un de ces modes de réalisation, ce cadre (200) comprend deux parties verticales latérales (220A, 220B) qui reçoivent un ou plusieurs emballages. Ce cadre présente l'avantage d'inclure un élément à positions variables (232A), de sorte que l'on peut positionner les emballages comme on le souhaite sur la hauteur des parties verticales. Avec cet emballage amélioré, on peut utiliser l'élément à positions variables dans certains modes de réalisation de l'invention pour des objets de diamètres/géométries multiples.
