Custom Size Conductive Totes

Cost effective, ESD safe handling containers to your specific size

The new conductive Q Grip handles allow for the creation of conductive tote containers in bespoke sizes without the need for potentially expensive design, tooling, or setup.

This allows your business to source ESD tote containers that maximise storage space, reduce transit costs (no more shipping empty space or excessive void fill), and help to prevent damage. The Corriplast® material also provides high levels of conductive performance required for protecting any static sensitive item. Read More

  • Free and impartial advice from UK based experts
  • Competitive pricing and wide distributor network

Description

More info on Conductive Q Grip Totes

Traditionally, if you needed a custom sized conductive tote, you would need to engage with a packaging designer with specific knowledge of static (such as GWP).

Whilst this approach would typically result in a more cost-effective long-term solution, the nature of the process would usually mean extended lead times and higher upfront costs (which could sometimes make this uneconomical for lower volumes).

And this is before considering the disastrous consequences of working with designers that do not understand the nuances of what is required to create truly ESD safe packaging.

The Q Grip tote system – now available in an ESD safe version – however, provides a new method of sourcing custom sized conductive totes both quickly and cost effectively.

The 3 unique components – effectively a handle which is fixed over two end sections – can be easily fixed in different positions to alter the dimensions of the tote.

This means there is little input required from design teams, whilst assembly times are significantly reduced too (both of which results in lower unit costs).

Add in less components required (i.e. no requirement for screws, glue or other fixings) and the ability for low volumes to manufactured with no requirement for tooling, and it opens the possibility of custom sized totes to a range of businesses and applications where this would not have been cost effective in the past.

Why use custom sized ESD totes?

With so many stock conductive tote options available through GWP, a logical question might be why custom sized containers would be required.

The answer is that the dimensional flexibility of conductive Q Grip totes offers a huge range of benefits and cost savings.

Firstly, when selecting a stock sized container, you always need to select a size which is slightly too big in order to accommodate your products or components. The extra (or wasted) space is then typically left empty or filled with void fill.

This wasted space however means you can store less items in your warehouse. Takes more trips to move when being handled by production staff. Even means less items can be shipped in a single consignment.

All of this leads to increased costs and decreased efficiency / productivity.

However, besides Q Grip totes resolving these issues – and effectively saving your business money – they can assist in improving other areas and processes too.

The ergonomic handle improves ease of use for the end user (further increasing productivity), whilst the integrated stacking feature allows for more efficient use of space too.

Movement of parts can also be streamlined and improved through the use of a range of compatible inserts such as dividers sets, layer pads, foam dunnage (including that manufactured from anti-static foam) and even vacuum formed trays.

This all adds up to provide numerous tangible benefits to your business when compared with using standard conductive totes.

Physical and ESD protection

Of course, all of these benefits would be of little value if the protection from static was compromised by using Q Grip versus the tried and tested Corriplast® / Corstat® options.

Fortunately, the ESD performance of Q Grip totes matches that of the existing tote container options, providing excellent protection for static sensitive items

The handle itself is manufactured from a conductive Polypropylene, whilst the Corriplast® material used for the walls of the container is the same as that used for the award-winning collapsible totes.

As such, the assembled Q Grip ESD totes provide a “Specific Volume Resistance” of <10³ Ohm x cm and “Specific Surface Resistance” of <10⁴ Ohm.

However, tailoring the size of your anti-static totes can also help improve physical protection too.

Custom size totes minimise movement of parts within the container (being a better fit), which in turn can help to prevent damage caused by shock, impact, or mishandling.

And finally, the Corriplast® material is itself durable and hardwearing, as well as providing protection from dust, moisture, grease etc. (it is also easily cleaned).

Key benefits of Conductive Q Grip totes at a glance

  • Durable Corriplast® material provides strength / durability / longevity
  • Exceptional conductive performance (both handle and wall material)
  • Sizes tailored to specific products help eliminate movement during transit
  • Tailored sizes maximise space efficiency during transit and storage
  • Ergonomic handles improve ease of use for handling operatives / staff
  • Efficient handling and storage of multiple items when used with dividers / inserts
  • Integrated corner feature allows for safe stacking
  • Reduced unit costs through minimised design and assembly times
  • Suitable for handling both light weight and heavy loads
  • Also provides protection from moisture, oil, and grease during storage

Key Features

Features of the Q Grip system

The diagram and explanatory notes below highlight the key features of the Q Grip system.

How conductive Q Grip works
A

Packaging location clip

B

Snap fit handle locking feature

C

Interlocking teeth on the rear side of end components lock into those on handle, allowing tote to be created to any size

D

Rear handle fits inside front handle for enhanced aesthetics and comfortable grip

E

Interlocking teeth on inside of the handle component lock into teeth on end / corner sections when folded over, eliminating the need for screws

G

Stacking platform and movement guards on each corner

F

Living hinges allow handle to fold over

Assembly

How Q Grip works

Firstly, the die cut Corriplast® material is folded as if assembling the tote / container

The side components are adjusted to the required packaging width and are then located on the tote corners.

The handle is placed on top of both the side components and is then folded over them.

The teeth from both the handle and side components interlock when folded and secure the three components together, preventing them coming apart.

The final step of the assembly process ends with the front and rear handle being pushed together. The cantilever snap features built into the hand holes locate, fixing the handle securely.
