Reusable packaging specialist Orbis Corp. has introduced a new pallet, sleeve and top cap system.
Oconomowoc, Wis.-based Orbis’s 1000 x 1200 CS CISC OPTE Bulk features a proprietary “active latch” that enables workers to engage and release the sleeve from the pallet from a standing position, with no bending required.
When it’s collapsed, the sleeve nests within the pallet and top cap and is fully self-contained for efficient return transportation.
As a result, 50% more collapsed systems can fit in a standard 53-foot trailer than alternative bulk packaging systems.
The OPTE Bulk also features multiple sleeve height and configuration options.
“The Orbis 1200 x 1000 CS CISC OPTE Bulk is an example of how Orbis utilizes design and engineering to deliver benefits at every step of the process for our customers, while keeping their environment top-of-mind,” Curt Most, Orbis’s senior product manager, said in the release. “In addition to its universal footprint, load capacity and self-contained collapsed design, we’ve added a simple, yet ultimately effective, latch that drives labor efficiency and ergonomics.”
