are removed from the ?llers, the edges 21 have a tend
ency to dig into the cone, whereby they become wedged
and di?icult to remove. Severe wedging often results in
breakage of the pastry cones.
By providing the upturned ?ange 13, :as shown in
FIG. 6 and elsewhere in the drawing, this problem is
completely avoided. The ?exural force is now evenly
55 distributed over a relatively wide area along the entire
surface of the inner edge 14. Moreover, the forces act
ing on the ?ange 13 act parallel to it and, hence, there is
increased resistance to ?exing of the sheet. This can be
readily demonstrated by stress-strain analysis, involving
accepted mathematical equations, but it will be especially
understood by those skilled in the art from the fact that
the distance between the point of reaction or support and
the point of force application is decreased by an amount
equal to the length of the ?ange, the latter force being
at the juncture of the ?ange with the horizontal portion
of the cardboard sheet, while in the case of the conven
tional ?ller as shown in FIG. 7, the ?exural force acts at

portion adjacent each aperture bent to provide a continu

said object is disposed in'the aperture.
During this movement, the jacketed cones are retained by
the spaced bars of the slideway and the ?ller sheet passes
underneath the bars. In the conventional type of ?ller
sheets (FIG. 7) it was necessary manually to separate
the ?ller from the cones by pulling on them downwardly.
But by the use of the present invention, the ?llers fall off
automatically solely under the force of gravity Without
the need for the operator touching them.
