Orbis Corporation displayed products from its European bulk container and pallet lines at LogiMAT 2017 in Stuttgart, Germany from March 14 to 16.
Based on European dimensions, the new 1200 mm x 800 mm HDB1208 BulkPak foldable container (FLC) displayed can hold up to 900 kg and is a reliable substitute for gitterboxes.
It folds when empty for return trips, allowing for more containers per truck compared with noncollapsible steel tubs.
Its footprint makes it ideal for sequencing parts, as well as rightsizing part shipments for line-side assembly and WIP operations.
The HDB1208 is engineered as a strong and durable container for heavy weight loads requiring increased packaging protection.
The use of plastic FLCs ensures reliable part quality and plant cleanliness, as an all-plastic material is easy to clean, will not rust and prevents metal-on-metal part damage.
Meanwhile, the 1120 mm by 1420 mm BulkPal and 1180 mm by 1250 mm BulkPal pallets are designed to store, stage and ship metal and plastic cans and bottles in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries in Europe.
These structural foam pallets, when combined with layer pads and top frames, are used to store and ship unit loads within the supply chain.
Orbis’ standard beverage pallet portfolio serves many countries, from the UK to Spain to Germany to Turkey.
These pallets and BulkPaks are structural-foam molded in HDPE and are designed for durability and product protection.
Additionally, these products can be fully recycled at the end of their service life, making it an environmentally friendly packaging option.
