Consequently, with economy in manufacture being an essential in this line of endeavor, it is desirable to eliminate wastage of stock, and to use as little stock as pos sible in keeping with the manufacture of a satis-1 25 factory and eiiicient product. Usually, in the manufacture Yof fiat bottom cups or containers, ’ such as ice cream cups, drinking cups and the - tion., As shown on the drawing: l For purposes of illustration, I have selected an embodiment of the present invention in the form of a flat bottom paper drinking cup, or ice cream cup, of a character which _is usually disposed of after a single usage, although it will be apparent 25 that the invention is not limited strictly to the illustrated container, but may include containers like, a slightly heavier stock is used. 'than is the for other purposes. case withI conical or envelope containers. The illustrated container or drinking cup in cludes a body portion l, which may be of trun- 30 Ac' 30 cordingly, the importance of using as little stock >as possible with ñat bottom containers is greatly magnified. ' With the foregoing in mind, it is an important object of the present invention to provide a flat _ cated conical shape as illustrated, having a curled ‘ drinking rim 8 at the mouth end thereof. The opposite end of the tubular body portion 'i is closed by a bottom member 9 having a depending ?lange IB which is, >in this instance, adhesively 35 35 bottom container made of paper or similar mate-l rial in which a very material saving of stock is effected without detracting in any manner from' attached to the lower part of the body, as indi cated at ii. The lower margin l2 of the body the eñìciency and serviceability of the container. Anotherobject of this invention is to provide then turned inwardly to embrace the lower margin portion, Awhich is-preferably free from adhesive, is 40 ’a flat bottom container made -of a plurality of - of the flange l0, as seen clearly in Figures l and 4. 40 initially separate blanks of stock, in which con siderably less stock is used than is the case with containers of similar types heretofore known. It is also an object of this invention to provide 45 a container made of a plurality of initially sep arate blanks wherein less stock is used than is the case with containers of similar types hereto fore known, without any lesseningof the capacity of the resultant container. 50 . Also a feature of the invention is the provision of a new andnovel method of making a container ' -of the character described. ' . ‘ While some of the more salient features, char acterlstics'and advantages of the present inven 55 tion have. been above >pointed'out, others will be It will be distinctly noted that the turned margin I2 terminates a very material distance below-the bottom proper 9, and the annular spacebetween the end of the turned margin i2 and the bottom - proper 9 represents the amount of paper stock 45 saved in the manufacture of this container: The body portion of the container is made , from a _blank 'la shown in Figure 3. 'This blank, .prior to its formation into the container body, is preferably provided with a‘suitable adhesive I3 50 along one of the side margins of the blank and, another application I4 of adhesive is provided along the bottom margin of the blank.l It will >be noted from the showing in Figure 3 that the application of adhesive Il is occurrent above the 55 - 2,132,597 2 the lower margin of the flange III is also rolled slightly inwardly as indicated at I1, concentri cally with the margin I6. The rolling action provides a relativelysmooth base for the con lower edge of the blank, leaving a v’margin I2a , preferably free from adhesive which, in the com pleted container, is the turned margin I2 men tioned above. In the making of the container, the body blank tainer as a whole and also adds to the bond between the body and bottom, but it will be noted that when the slight roll is used. less body material is necessary than with the construction ‘Ia` is ñrst cut to size and provided with the ad hesived portions I3 and I4 as above described. This blank is then formed into a tubular body portion with the adhesive I3 uniting overlapped ` 10 marginal portions, as indicated at I5 in Figure previously described. ' _ In Figure 6, I have shown a construction which 10 effects a still greater saving of stock. The bot body 1 of the container in proper shape. Either during the formation of the blank ‘Ia into the tubular body or thereafter as may be deemed most feasible, the bottom member tom member, together with its flange, is joined l 2 to maintainthe to the body in the manner above described. In this instance, however, a lower marginal portion I8 of the body is merely turned inwardly so as 15 to overlie the lower edge of the flange I0 on the 9 is placed in position sufficiently far inside theÁ tube so that the adhesive I4 will unite the flange I0 of the bottom member and the container body. If so desired, a slight ironing or pressing action may be provided to insure the proper adhesion. 20 The' next operation is to turn inwardly the non bottom member and, in this instance,.the turned margin I8 effects little or ‘no engagement with adhesived margin I2a. of the blank to provide the turned margin I2 of the container. This latter operation not only effects a better union between the container body and the bottom member, but also provides a relatively smooth base for the 25 container as a whole. ' In containers of this type as they were usually manufactured heretofore, the adhesive III was brought substantially to the lower edge of the blank, which blank was longer than-that illus 30 trated herein. When the bottom margin of the blank was turned inwardly, this margin extended substantially to the bottom proper 9 and was adhesively secured to the inner face of the flange I0, necessitating in most instances an ironing 35 operation to insure the proper adhesion. It will be noted that the efficiency and satisfactory op eration of the present container is not detracted from in any material degree by the terminating of the flange I2 a relatively considerable dis 40 tance below the bottom proper 9, thus saving that amount offpaper stock, and by not adhesive ly uniting the turned margin I2 to the inner face ofthe flange I0, although, if so desired, such adhesive union could be :readily effected in 45 the present invention. When quantity manu facture is considered, it will at once be apparent that the saving of stock effected by the present invention is a very substantial item. - In Figure 5, I have shown a slightly modiñed 50 form of construction which results in a still greater saving of stock. In this instance, sub stantially the same container body is provided, but this body is slightly shorter than as previ ously described. The bottom member 9 with 55 its flange I0 is adhesively secured to thev body in the same manner as indicatedat II. How ever, the lower marginal portion' of the body is slightly rolled inwardly as indicated at I6, and any but the direct lower edge of the flange. Accordingly, the turned margin I8 need not be quite as long as the margin I6 just previously described. i ' From the foregoing, it will be apparent that I have provided a highly eñicient and satisfac tory -container which results, in its manufac ture, in a material saving of stock, without any detraction from the efliciency of the container or any lessening of its capacity. It will also be noted that a container manufactured in ac cordance with the principles of this invention and in accordance with the novel method set forth herein eliminates certain expensive manu facturing operations, and the making of the con tainer may be accomplished with great facility and in an economical manner. _ I am aware that many changes may be made and numerous details of construction may be varied through awìde range without departing from the principles of this invention, and I, therefore, do not purpose limiting the patent 40 granted hereon otherwise than is necessitated by the prior art. I claim as my invention: _ A container of the character described made fromv a body blank and a bottom blank, the body 45 blank having adhesive adjacent a side edge to join overlapping marginal portions to .provide a tubular body, and said body blank having ad hesive along the bottom edge but spaced from this edge to leave an edge part vfree of adhesive, a bottom blank having a depending flange dis posed in the tubular body with the second said adhesive joining the body and flange, and the lower body edge free from adhesive being turned inwardly so as to-be crimped against the edge of said flange and~ the extremity thereof termi nating beyond said crimped engagement and a material distance below the bottom proper.
