  • Patent number: 10099840
    Abstract: A cup made of a paper material having a fillable interior, which cup is formed by a conical sleeve and a bottom. The bottom is attached to the sleeve at the lower end of the interior with a bottom skirt in an essentially liquid-tight way. The sleeve and/or the bottom in the area of the bottom skirt and/or the bottom skirt itself comprises, at least in one area along the periphery, an outwardly projecting widening. A lower edge of the widening forms a standing surface for the cup. The widening can serve to hold another cup of the same type, and can act together with a similar cup during stacking. The cup can include a heat insulating outer sleeve.

  • Patent number: 10035692
    Abstract: A method for fabricating a funnel, a tool for carrying out the method, and a funnel of flat material, more particularly of plastic-coated paper. A receptacle for a pulverulent and/or liquid medium includes a funnel disposed in a pouring or discharging region. A blank of flat material is shaped to a funnel-shaped sleeve having an outlet opening, an inlet opening, and an opening angle, and the funnel-shaped sleeve is swaged in at least one subregion to effect enlargement of the opening angle.

  • Patent number: 10035321
    Abstract: An apparatus for manufacturing a sleeve for a paper cup and/or a paper cup comprises a machine frame and at least two star wheels, which are rotatably connected with the machine frame and which can be rotated in synchronized cycles. A first star wheel comprises a number of conical mandrels, on each of which one sleeve made of a flat-lying blank can be formed. The star wheels are positioned in one plane and are arranged to a vertical wall of the machine frame with horizontal rotary axes. The star wheels can be connected to at least one drive, whereby the drive is arranged on the side of the machine frame wall facing away from the star wheels.

  • Publication number: 20170253417
    Abstract: A double-walled cup and a process for production of the cup are described. The cup includes an inner cup and a tube-shaped outer sleeve, which is formed from a blank of paper material joined at its ends. The tube-shaped outer sleeve is slid axially onto a prefabricated inner sleeve and secured. The tube-shaped outer sleeve is formed from a flat blank by joining the ends of the blank before being slid on, whereby the ends of the blank are joined by an adhesive applied to a limited area of the outer sleeve. The ends of the blank are joined by a thermoplastic material in the form of an adhesive, which for example can be a hot-melt adhesive or a sealing varnish.

  • Patent number: 8875986
    Abstract: A double-walled insulated cup of paper material having an outer sleeve and an inner cup with a truncated conical wall and a bottom wall interconnected by a peripheral edge frame. The inner cup has a top shoulder and a bottom shoulder and the outside diameter of the inner cup at the level of the top shoulder increases toward the top edge of the inner cup. The outer sleeve lies against the inner cup in the region of the top shoulder thereof and extends to the bottom edge of the peripheral edge frame. The outside diameter of the outer sleeve at the level of the bottom edge of the peripheral edge frame is smaller than the inside diameter of the inner cup just above the bottom shoulder and is greater than the inside diameter of the inner cup just below the bottom shoulder.
