A patent application (Publication Number: US20230406591A1) describes a material blank designed for attachment to a group of containers. The material blank includes a connection section with container receiving openings, first and second folding tabs for bundling the material, and a configuration that allows the tabs to overlap and cover the upper face of the connection section. The design ensures a secure fit and efficient bundling of containers within a group.

Furthermore, the patent application details a method for producing a container bundle using the material blank. The method involves assembling the containers into a group, attaching the material blank with container receiving openings to the containers, pivoting the folding tabs into a bundle position, and connecting them to form a container carrier. Additional steps include engaging locking elements with carrying openings and using a tool plate with impressing fingers for this purpose. The method ensures a streamlined process for creating container bundles with a secure and stable carrier, enhancing efficiency in packaging and transportation processes.
