Hopper Style Container Offers Ergonomic Solution to Storing/Dispensing Fasteners & Small Dense Items
Universal Package Systems offers a plastic bulk container with a 32” x 30” footprint and a hopper style bottom designed to store and dispense fasteners, screws and other small, uniformly shaped, dense items. The container is 34” tall.
It eliminates the need to store or stage items in smaller, but less durable containers such as corrugated boxes that can easily tear, rip or break open. Fasteners and similar items are typically stored in small boxes so they can be lifted and handled manually as needed. The weight of the boxes however, presents a potential ergonomic problem that can lead to worker injuries. The hopper bottom is designed to handle up to 1200 lbs, and eliminates the constant manual lifting of small heavy loads.
With a smooth, angled interior, all product is completely dispensed, and no secondary removal processes are necessary. Custom mounting racks can be built based on need and location to dispense product into small containers, or to a conveyor or assembly line. A stock stand, lids and liners are also available.
