This invention relates to shipping containers for wound yarn and more particularly to a container suitable for shipping a' plurality of packages of wound yarn such 5 as cones of rayon. One of the objects of the invention is to provide a simple, strong and quickly assembled container which will hold the cones without chafing or harmful contacts. It should be understood that where we speak of cones we include any other form of wound yarn packages, such, for instance, as cops, spindles, quills, cheeses, bobbins or tubes.
In shipping cones of yarn, such as rayon, from the yarn manufacturer to the knitting or weaving mill,it is important to ship the coned yarn without damage. It is essential that the cones be packed so as to avoid chafing of the am on one cone against the yarn on anotl ier cone or against .the container or packing materials, and care should be taken to prevent any contact pressure on the yarn which might misshape t e cone. One of the objects of the invention is to provide a sim 1e and easily assembled shipping container or a number of cones of yarn.
In the drawings:
Fig. 1 is a vertical section through one end of a container for a plurality of rows of yarn cones, each row having a plurahty of cones therein;
Fig. 2 is a similar view with the cones shown in cross section; while Fig. 3 is a plan view of the container and a air of partitions without the cones.
ccording to this invention the cones 10 are each firmly held at the top and also at the bottom b corrugated cardboard partitions 13 and 4, there being a pair of such horizontal partitions 13 and 14 between each two rows of yarn cones. These partitions are ierced with holes 11 and 12 into which fit t e bottoms and the tops respectively of the conical tubes 8, onto which the yarn has been wound. By this means, the cones of yarn are kept out of contact with each other 1930. Serial No. 459,168.
board partitions 13. The cardboard artitions are made of corrugated cardboar and preferably the corrugations of the bottom partltions 14 run at 1'1 ht angles to the corrugatlons of the partitlons 13 for the tops of the cones.
The cardboard partition 13 for the tops of the. cones diifers from the coardboard part1t1on 14 for the bottoms in that the openlugs 12 for the tops of the cones are smaller, and these upper cardboard partitions or trays 13 are folded down at the sides and ends of the partition at 16 to afford a better contact with the main carton or receptacle. The openings in these top partitions or trays 13 are so spaced as to hold the tops of the cones from contact with the folded down ends and sides 16 of the trays and with the nelghboring cones, and are of such a diameter that when the tray is pressed down tlghtly on top of the cone the tissue aper wrapping 9, which is ordinarily place over the cone will cause the tray 13 to wed e on the top of the tube 8 without coming own far enough to touch the yarn.
By having the corrugations of the bottom and top partitions or trays run at right angles to each other suificient strength is obtained between the successive layers of cones to insure a strong package without the use of wood.
The bottom of each tube 8 being of larger diameter than its top, it will be seen that the enlarged lower end of each cone of the upper row will find itself supported by the lower partition 13 while fitting into the openin 11 of the partition 14.
e claim as our invention:
1. A yarn package, comprising a container, and rows of yarn cones therein in combination with partitions consisting of two layers of corrugated cardboard between each two rows of cones, the upper partition layer having holes to receive the larger ends of the cones of the upper row while the lower partition layer has openings to receive the smaller ends of the cones of that row.
2. A yarn package, comprising a container, and rows of yarn cones therein in combination with partitions consisting of two layers of corrugated cardboard between each two rows of cones, the upper partition layer having holes to receive the larger ends of the cones of the upper row while the lower partition layer has openings to receive the smaller ends of the cones of that row, and the two layers of cardboard of each partition have their corrugations running in difierent directions.
In testimony whereof we have signed our names to this s ecification;
W TER BEATH GIBB.
