Totes, Bins & ESD Containers
Totes, bins, containers and boxes are basically receptacles for parts or products to be stored on or in a storage device. The receptacle is used for storage or housing of items in inventory.
The design of these receptacles and the material from which they are made is defined by their designated use (i.e. storage, picking / stocking, internal / external transport, shipping, cushioning, protection, electrostatic discharge protection, weather proofing, indoor / outdoor storage, etc)
These receptacles can be constructed of many materials: plastic, cardboard, steel, aluminum, wire, wood, corrugated plastic and conductive corrugated or plastic. Many products are available as standard items in varying sizes depending on the manufacturer.
Product protection requirements can be custom designed in most materials. Requirements such as ESD conductive, special cushioning, or special packaging are designed according to customer driven specifications.
Wire baskets or containers can hold large, heavy products and can be stacked on top of each other (nesting) or stored in racking.
