CONTAINER FOR- AND DISPENSER OF RIB- '
HON-LIKE MATERIAL
'
George H. Halpin, St. Paul, Minn., assignor to
Minnesota Mining & Manufacturing Company,‘
St. Paul, Minn., a corporation of Delaware
Application November 23, 1932, Serial No. 644,064
In Great Britain August 9, 1932
10 Claims.
The invention relates broadly to a device for
containing and dispensing rolls of ribbon-like
material, and more particularly to a device for
retaining and dispensing rolls of adhesive tape of
5 a nature such that temporary adhesion between
the successive layers of the tape in the roll will
normally prevent the tape from unrolling except
by the act of the user.
This invention as represented by its several
10 forms ?nds particular utility for holding and dis
pensing pressure sensitive adhesive tapes, such,
for example, as those disclosed in the patent to
Drew 1,760,820, May 27, 1930 and wherein by vir
tue of the tacky nature of the adhesive layer
15 and the structure of the container, the tape may
be dispensed directly from the container onto the
surface to which it is to be applied.
The principal objects and advantages of this
invention reside in the provision of a device for
containing and dispensing a roll of ribbon-like
2 O material, which is simple and economical of con
struction, of such a' nature as to readily allow
' the removal or insertion of a roll of the ribbon
like material, and provided with a means for
25 severing any desired length of such material from
the roll; the provision of an improved container
for pressure sensitive tape having severing means
forming a part of the container; the provision
of an improved container of the character re
” ferred to wherein the tape roll is available from
without the container so that the rotation of
the roll of tape may be arrested as desired to
facilitate severing; the provision of an improved
container for pressure sensitive tape which is of
35 such economical construction as to permit the
container to be marketed with roll of tape so as
to make convenient the use of the tape; and the
provision of an improved container for pressure
sensitive tape which will insure e?icient and ac
40 curate dispensing of the tape and thus avoid
waste.
'
The invention has as further objects the pro
vision of a container for tapes by which the tape
may be dispensed directly from the roll onto a
45 surface to which it is to be applied and in which
said container is provided with a severing blade
whereby the tape dispensed may be conveniently
severed from the roll, at the same time leaving
available a part of the roll so that it is presented
50 convenient of access for dispensing additional
portions of the tape.
While the various forms of this device as shown
and described are designed particularly for use
for containing and dispensing rolls of pressure
55 sensitive adhesive tape, the device may be used
(Cl. 216—-33)
with other tapes, and therefore ?nds a wide ?eld
of utility in connection with analogous materials.
The foregoing and such further objects and
advantages as may appear or be pointed outias
this description proceeds are attained in the 5
structural embodiments illustrated in the accom
panying drawings, in which:
-
Figure 1 is a view of the ?at stamping used in
certain forms of this device.
-
'
FigureZ is a side elevation of one form of the
device completely formed from the blanleshown
in Figure 1.
‘
Figure 3 is an edge elevation.
Figure 4 is a view similar to Figure 2 ofianother
form of the device with a portion cut away to
show the spool of tape in position and a method
of using the device.
Figures 5 and 6 are side elevation and edge
views respectivelyof a further modi?ed form of
the device formed from a modi?ed blank similar 20
to that shown in Figure 1.
Figures 7 and 8 are side elevation and edge
views respectively of a further form of the de
vice, and
Figures 9 and 10 show the stampings from 25
which the form shown in Figures 7 and 8 is made.
Referring now to the drawings and ?rst more
particularly to Figures 1 to 3 inclusive, one form
of the device is made from the single sheet metal
stamping l0, comprising two disc-like side por
tions H and I2 connected by a bridge portion 13
forming an abutment, which is provided with a
laterally extended portion l4 having a serrated
edge 15. This blank is formed over a suitable
die so that the sides II and I2 are bent along
the dotted lines Ha and H41, respectively, so
that they are held in parallel spaced relationship
by the bridge portion l3. The sides II and I!
possess a desired degree of resiliency for a pur
pose which will hereinafter appear.
The annular portions of the sides H and [2
inside of the dotted lines "5a and Ila, respec
tively, are bent to form the inwardly projecting
circular ?anges l5 and ITV respectively which
act as spindles for the roll of tape l8 which is 45
wound on a hollow core l9, which may be con
veniently a short section of cardboard tube. The
portion I4 is bent along the dotted line “a to
an angular relation with the bridge portion l3 as
shown, thus placing the serrated edge I5 in a
convenient position for use in severing any desired
length of the tape which has been removed from
the roll.

After the respective parts are in their. ‘desire
relation with each other the areas indicated by 56

the dotted lines 20a and Ma are formed into the
ribs 20 and 2| respectively, which act as reinforc
ing means to impart a certain degree of rigidity
and to hold the portions of the device in the
desired relative positions.
The device made as above described provides
a simple and convenient structure in which the
roll l8 of adhesive material may readily be in
serted or removed by springing apart the side
10 members II and I2. When thus inserted it is
held in place and yet is revoluble on‘ the spin
dles l6 and I1, and the’ tape may be readily re
moved in any desired length by holding the device
between the thumb and fore?nger of one hand
and pulling outwardly on the edge of the tape.
The rotation of the roll on the spindles may be
readily controlled by the pressure of the thumb
or ?nger on the side walls acting as a brake on
the roll itself, and the tape may be severed at
any desired point by bending it up along the
portion l4 and tearing off along the serrated edge
l5. This will leave the short portion of the
tape which extends along the portion l4 loose
on the roll to serve as a tab for unrolling the
next section.‘
'
A modi?ed form of the device is shown in
Figure 4. This is made from the same stamping
as shown in Figure 1 and is formed in the same
way as the device shown in Figures 2 and 3 with
30 the exception that the extended portion I4 is
bent in the form of an are as shown at |4b. In
Figure 4 a portion of the wall II -is shown cut
away to show a roll of pressure-sensitive tape in
position. The portion I4!) is so bent and curved
P with relation to the side walls H ‘and I2 that
when these are moved along, or slightly raised
from a surface, S. on which it is ‘desired to apply
the\tape, the bent portion’ |4b may be used as
an applicator to press the tape directly in place,
40 as it is dispensed from the roll, andthe tape may
be severed at any desired point by- tipping up the
holder to bring the serrated edge IS in contact
with the tape. In Figure 4 the cutaway portion
shows the roll of tape in position and the way in
45 which it is applied to the surface, S. It is ob
vious that the. form of the device as
shown in ,
Figure 4 can also be used in the manner described
above for the form shown in Figures 2 and 3, and
also that to a limited extent the portion 14 of the
form shown in Figures 2 and 3 may serve as an
applicator similar to portion Mb 01' the form
shown in Figure 4.

'
A further modi?ed form of the device is shown
in'Figures 5 and 6 where the portion l4 of the
55 blank shown in Figure 1 is dispensed with and
the serrated cutting edge |5b is formed on the
side of the bridge member | 3 along the line |4a.
In'this form also, additional material is pro
‘vided on the sides II and I2 to allow the forming
of rolled circumferential beads around the outer
circumference of these side members as shown
at llb and H12.

This form of the device is used in the same
manner as described above for the form shown in
Figures 2 and 3.

It is readily seen that the rolled edges llb and
I2?) as shown in the form of the device in Figures
forms a body portion 32, which may be upset be
tween the lines 32a and 32b to form the annular
crowned portion 320 as shown. The annular
portion inside of line 32b is bent to form the in
wardly projecting circular ?ange 33. The por
tions 34, 35 and 36 are bent along the lines 34a,_
35a and 32a to form the side members as shown
in Figures 7 and 8.
The member 3| is formed from the blank shown
in Figure 10 having the body portion 31 with the 10
annular crowned portion 310, the inwardly pro
jecting circular ?ange 38 and side members 33.
40. and 4| formed in the same‘manner as de
scribed above. A proj/ecting portion on side
member 39 is bent along line 42a to form an
abutment adjacent to the outlet, and aiiording
the guide and applicator blade 42 and is pro
vided with a serrated cutting edge 43 at the outer.
end.
When these members 30 and 3| are placed to 20
gether to form the device as shown in Figures 7
and 8 the side members 33, 40 and 4| of mem
bers 3| ?t inside of side members 34, 35 and 36
of member 30 respectively and form apertures
48 on either side of members 36 and 4|. The in 25
herent resiliency of these members sets up a
frictional contact between the side portions‘
thereby holding the two members together. The
inwardly directed ?anges 33 and 38 are thus
oppositely disposed to each other and form a 30
spindle for the core 44 of a roll, 45, of adhesive
tape or other ribbon-like material. The core 44
is conveniently oi cardboardand of a length such
as to contact with the ?anges 33 and 38 and be
freely revoluble about them;
35
The eo-operating members 30 and 3| are so
constructed that the sides 35 and 40 are shorter
than sides 34 and 33 and thus when struck up
into angular relationship with the members 30
and 3| a slot 46 is afforded adjacent to the apex 40
41 of the container.
The tape when unrolled is dispensed through
the slot 46 along the guide 42 and may be severed
at any desired point by the serrated edge 43.
It will be observed that when the members
30 and 3| are properly assembled the guide 42
forms a continuation of the plane of the outer
surface of the side 35. Thus if desired this ‘guide
may be used as an applicator for applying pres
sure sensitive adhesive tape directly onto a sur
face as desired, thus eliminating extra handling,
50'
and at the same time leaving one of the user’s
hands free to hold two or more objects in desired
position for receiving the tape.
Having thus described my invention and illus 55
