BITO Storage Systems will be showing the new BITOBOX XLmotion plastic container at IntraLogisteX, which is being held at the Ricoh Arena on 25-26 March 2015.

XLmotionDesigned for automated storage and retrieval, the 53 litre capacity container’s new base features diagonal support ribbing, which ensures silent travelling on conveyors. It also gives excellent rigidity.

The new XLmotion’s wider base (389 mm instead of the broader European standard size base of 363 mm) can rest on narrower seats (57 mm instead of 70 mm) within an Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RS). This reduces the amount of steel required and thus allows a more cost efficient system design. The XLmotion can also be adapted for use in any design of AS/RS. External dimensions are 599 mm (length) x 399 mm (container width) x 270 mm (height). Height options of 220 and 320 mm will be available from March. The container’s load capacity is 50 kg and stacking load is 250 kg.

All XLmotion containers provide options for subdivision with inexpensive, slim yet robust dividers. Containers can be divided by width and/or by length to give, a container with anything from two to 16 compartments.

Other options for this container include: drainage holes in the base or sides; ribbing adapted to a specific application; available with open or moulded grip holes on the short side; containers can be divided side-to-side as well as front-to-back. Accessories include a drop-on lid with snap lock, which does not add to the container height and will not come off when handling speed is increased; cross dividers; and longitudinal dividers.

At IntraLogisteX BITO will also be showcasing pallet and carton live solutions, which offer compelling benefits in terms of FIFO (First In, First Out) storage and order picking.

A one-stop shop for storage solutions, BITO offers shelving and racking; storage and order picking systems; bins and containers and other warehouse equipment and accessories.
