The new container series is aimed specifically at the automotive sector, i.e. automobile manufacturers, component plants and suppliers. The containers are available in two basic dimensions 1,000 x 600 mm and 600 x 500 mm, to correspond to the basic industrial pallet dimensions of 1,200 x 1,000 mm, and in different article heights and designs. The QX container is designed for the use of moulded blisters housing form-fit components.
The QX container has smooth internal walls simplifying the washing process. Alternatively, the side walls can be equipped with a locking device. This means that the blister does not stick to the component when the last component is removed, potentially causing a system fault. The QX containers also have colour codes that are clearly visible even when stacked. This colour code can be used to achieve container orientation and to differentiate various goods. The QX container can accommodate weights up to 70 kg.
The QX container series can be highly automated: With lifting slots and the straight design of the load bearing elements such as corner frames and the upper edge, the QX container offers numerous access points for gripper equipment. It also fulfils current purity requirements for modern industrial manufacturing. This is guaranteed by successfully completing the type IP44 classification test.
