ORBIS Corp. has introduced the BulkTote, which offers fork truck entry on all sides for easier handling and versatile line-side part delivery.
The new 30” x 16” BulkTote adds efficiency to line-side presentation of heavy, dense parts. With the ability to present its shorter side to the line, it will reduce line-side space to nearly half while delivering the same amount of product to the line or doubling the amount of SKUs in the previous 32” x 30” line-side footprint.
Designed to hold up to 500 lbs, the BulkTote replaces wire baskets, steel tubs or wood/corrugated packaging with a fully reusable handling solution, and was built for long-lasting durability in heavy-duty applications. The unique fork opening at the top of the container offers the ability to safely present the short side to the assembly line. With the 16” side facing the line, more containers can be fit on the line, resulting in efficient utilization of space and a safer environment for workers.
The BulkTote weighs just under 30 pounds when empty. It is structural foam molded in high-density polyethylene (HDPE) for a long service life, and can be fully recycled at the end of its life. Additionally, all ORBIS bulk containers can be fitted with custom protective ORBIShield dunnage, to ensure product inside is moved safely throughout the supply chain.
