OCONOMOWOC, Wis. – ORBIS offers the side-loading Maximus container, designed to reduce employee strain, decrease walk time and optimize line-side space. These side-loading containers are ideal for delivering sequenced parts to an assembly line. Users can select from a variety of standard container configurations, including the standard automotive 45” x 48” AIAG footprint used in the movement, storage and shipment of automotive, appliance and recreational vehicle parts.

Due to advanced engineering, the Maximus can be prototyped and manufactured with dunnage much more rapidly than traditional metal racks with pigeon hole dunnage, while exhibiting comparable durability. As a result, the Maximus reduces tooling costs and eliminates prototyping lead times.

Multiple closure options are available, including a heavy-duty vinyl roll-down tarp to protect parts from dust. The Maximus is delivered directly to the assembly line for immediate part delivery, with no unwrapping or unbanding. The vinyl tarp rolls securely to the top, for easy access to parts.

Dunnage is custom designed for each application, creating sturdy packaging for long parts such as side body moldings, door trim panels, rack rails, pillar trim, spoilers, coils, springs and harnesses. Dunnage is available in a variety of standard materials, cell sizes and configurations to optimize part density.

In addition to the standard 45” x 48” footprint, Maximus containers are available multiple footprints and heights. Identification options include cardholders, identification plates, molded-in art and label placards.

Plastic reusable packaging improves the flow of product all along the supply chain, to reduce costs. ORBIS helps world-class customers move their product faster, better, safer and more cost-effectively. ORBIS uses proven expertise, industry-leading knowledge, innovation, superior products (containers, pallets and dunnage) and supply chain services (pooling, cleaning and logistics) to implement plastic reusable packaging systems.
