  • Patent number: 10414580
    Abstract: A cigarette pack having a foil block as an inner pack and a hinge-lid box as an outer pack is configured with an opening aid for the foil block, in which a closure tab for exposing a retrieval opening of the foil block is connected with a lid inner flap as part of the lid front wall. The lid inner flap is movable or pivotable, respectively. A relative movement of the lid inner flap takes place so as to be tuned to the opening procedure of the closure tab when the lid is opened.

  • Patent number: 9889983
    Abstract: The invention relates to a (cigarette) package consisting of an outer package (10) and two inner packages (11, 12). The latter can be moved by a pivoting movement about a respective articulation joint in the region of an outer base wall (40) out of the closed position (upright within the outer package (10)) into an oblique open position. To this end a covering tab (28) which closes off the cup-shaped inner package (11, 12) on the upper face is automatically moved out of the closed position, such that the oblique inner package (11, 12) is ready for the removal of the contents of the packaging.

  • Publication number: 20120318690
    Abstract: The invention relates to a multipack having a plurality of preferably cuboidal packs (13), in particular cigarette packs, which are partially surrounded by an outer wrapper (14) preferably made of transparent material such as film, wherein the packs (13) are to be provided, in particular in the region of base side surfaces (18) thereof, with tax markings (25), and wherein the outer wrapper (14) does not extend over regions of the packs (13) in which the tax markings (25) are to be applied to corresponding surfaces of the packs (13), in particular not or substantially not in the region of a base side (19) of the multipack (10), and in that the packs (13) are secured by securing means against falling out of the multipack (10) in the region of that side surface of the multipack (10) that is not or is substantially not enclosed by the outer wrapper (14).

  • Patent number: 8123030
    Abstract: An aroma-tight or moisture-tight pack for cigarettes (10) having an inner pack (12), produced from cardboard or a comparable packaging material, made tight as a result of corresponding treatment, and an outer pack (13) in the form of a hinge-lid box, however without a collar. A cigarette group (11) is positioned directly, that is without an inner envelope, in the inner pack (12). The inner pack is provided in an upper region, namely in the region of a cover (15) of the outer pack (13), with a particular opening aid. A closure tab (39) of the inner pack (12) is covered over its entire surface area by an actuating tab (42) which is realized as tape and is produced from a separate blank.

  • Patent number: 7992708
    Abstract: A cigarette pack of the hinge-lid-box type comprises an outer pack (13) and an inner pack which can be displaced in the longitudinal direction within the outer pack (13). A hinge lid (36) is fitted on one side of the outer pack (13). This hinge lid is moved into an open position by displacement of the inner pack (12) relative to the outer pack (13), to be precise by an opening force being transmitted by means of a pushing-action tab (27) arranged within the pack.

  • Patent number: 7757846
    Abstract: In order to manufacture folding packets having a packet part (11), a lid (12) and a collar (13), a single-piece blank is used, in which a collar (13) is connected to a main blank (14) via connecting webs (15, 16). The collar (13) is connected to a connecting web (15) via an edge-side collar folding line, and the connecting webs (15, 16) are connected to the main blank (14) via transversely oriented web folding lines (41, 42), with the result that the collar (13) can be moved into the position with two folding steps which follow one another.

  • Patent number: 7506755
    Abstract: Disclosed is a closing aid for cigarette packs of the hinged lid type, comprising vertical webs (31) of a collar (12) and an inner lid fold (25) located on the interior face of a front wall (19) of the lid. Said inner lid fold (25) is provided with lateral recesses (37) whose relative position is selected such that the threading process of the webs (31) into an interlocked position with the inner lid fold (25) is initiated when a maximum edge pressure is attained on top transversal edges (35) of the collar (12).
