'HopperBox' Innovation

Schematic supply Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC's), Folding Large Containers (FLC's), and material handling logistic solutions.

Our HopperBox HOP975 model is a FLC and ideal for many applications, especially for preforms, caps and closures handling in the drinks/bottling sector. It is designed to improve handling efficiency, save costs and reduce packaging waste in line with the trend from the global logistic packaging industry.  Click here to see the video of FLCs loading onto a waggon.

The HOP975 has a 600 Litres (159 US Gals) capacity and a product reliability and high quality that is well proved in many hundreds of thousands of installations/uses around the world.  It is offered, as standard, with two drop down doors positioned at 90degree apart, for full contents operator access. It is designed for use as a single hopper or multiple hopper contents dispensing of stacked hoppers. This reduces container swap-over handling time/shift and hopper/machine downtime waiting for contents loading.

The HOP975 has passed the following international standards;

- The general simulation performance test for packaging (ISTA-3E)

- The D4169-08 Performance Testing of Shipping Containers

- The Systems by the International Safe Transit Association (ISTA)

- The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)
