Corstat Bin Boxes

Find out how you can reduce costs by protecting your ICs, Dip Tubes and components from static damage

Corstat bin boxes offer ESD protection for virtually any static sensitive item. Ideal for storing IC devices, dip tubes and essentially offering a versatile handling and storing solution, these conductive storage bins can eliminate the costs associated with items becoming damaged whilst in storage or during normal handling operations.

 

Corstat bin boxes are available in a wide range of standard sizes, plus closed, open front and fully open variants. This ensures that no matter the application or the item being stored inside, they will offer full protection from harmful static charges.

How can you benefit from using Corstat Bin Boxes?

Corstat Bin Boxes offer your business a number of advantages when compared with similar products – meaning they can make a noticeable difference to your efficiency and costs. Please use the links below to go to your specific area of interest.

 

Protecting sensitive electrical components with Bin Boxes

Corstat conductive coating has long been regarding as the optimum way of protecting any static sensitive devices.

 

Being specified by practically every OEM and blue chip manufacturer of electronics or specialist equipment, Corstat has earned its’ reputation as the most cost effective, reliable and long lasting form of conductive packaging available.

 

Bin Boxes are just one of the popular handling and storage products manufactured from Corstat. IC devices, dip tubes and other delicate electrical components are at risk of irreparable damage from static electricity but, by storing such items in Corstat bin boxes you can significantly reduce damage to these sensitive items.

 

The unique Corstat coating provides a Faraday Cage effect, channelling static electricity around the outside of the bin box rather than allowing it to enter and damage the items inside.

Open front conductive bins

As well as reducing the costs and administrative burden of having to refund damaged components once they have been shipped, storing items in Corstat bin boxes can also help protect your company’s reputation by removing the risk of supplying customers with damaged or faulty components.

Eliminate damage to static sensitive components whilst in storage:

  • Unrivalled ESD protection to minimise damage to sensitive components whilst in storage
  • Custom sizes can be precisely tailored to your product for bespoke protection levels
  • Corstat coating & structural design creates a Faraday Cage effect to protect from static
  • Physical protection from mis-handling, dust and UV
  • Corriplast (fluted plastic) equivalents available for increased durability and clean room applications

Using Corstat Bin Boxes can increase your operational efficiency

Besides the obvious benefits of eliminating damage to static sensitive components, conductive bin boxes can help to improve the efficiency of your operations too.

 

The stock range of Corstat bin boxes are manufactured in three variants: closed, open and fully open. The use of the open front and fully open bin boxes enables your staff to quickly identify the items they require and significantly increase the efficiency of stock picking / retrieval operations.

 

This can mean orders being fulfilled more quickly and efficiently, reduce production and assembly times and boost overall productivity.

 

The open front and closed variants are also stackable, allowing you to maximise storage space. This can allow for a larger inventory of products, or a reduction in the costs associated with warehouse / storage.

Open front bin box

Another way to maximise the use of your storage facility is provided by the option of having Corstat bin boxes supplied flat. This not only reduces delivery costs, but also ensures they take up minimal space when not in use.

 

However, with lead times usually within 48 hours on all conductive stock products, it provides you with the flexibility of not needing to keep a large inventory of your conductive handling items.

 

A final potential benefit to your operational efficiency is that Corstat is completely inert and safe to handle. There is no requirement for PPE (saving time and boosting productivity) whilst Corstat is also fully recyclable.

 

This means that there are no complex or costly disposal methods required, minimising effort, cost and time.

Benefits to the operational efficiency of your businesss:

  • Held in stock to enable short lead times, allowing you to reduce your stock holding / storage
  • Can be stacked to maximise your storage space and minimise the associated costs
  • Allows quicker / easier identification of items and streamlines stock retrieval processes
  • Can be stored flat when not in use further reducing storage required
  • Does not require protective equipment or clothing when handling
Conductive transit, handling and storage products manufactured from Corstat conductive fibreboard account for over 80% of the entire anti static packaging market in the UK. Why not specify the best ESD safe packaging for your business too?

A focus on cost effectiveness and performance

Corstat bin boxes – and indeed the full range of conductive packaging manufactured using it – provides an excellent balance between high performance, long lifespan and cost effectiveness.

 

The corrugated cardboard material which is used for manufacturing Corstat Bin Boxes is widely regarded as offering the perfect compromise between cost and durability.

 

As such, whilst Corstat bin boxes boast a much lower unit cost than plastic alternatives, their longevity ensures low lifetime costs too.

 

The Corstat coating itself is also supplied with a 10 year guarantee, whilst the stock range of bin boxes also benefit from no tooling costs (further reducing the unit price).

Anti static picking boxes

These initial cost savings are also complimented by indirect savings across the life of the Bin Boxes.

 

This includes the reduction in written off stock (i.e. that was damaged and is no longer usable), the gains in efficiency and productivity,  the potential for reducing storage space and even the potential increase in repeat business through reliable supply.

Reduce ongoing costs and improve your business reputation:

  • Significant cost savings when compared to plastic bin boxes
  • Extensive stockholding of standard sizes eliminates tooling charges and ensures low unit costs
  • 10 year guarantee on Corstat coating, ensuring low lifetime costs
  • Durable construction and material ensures ongoing performance over many uses
  • Inert and environmentally friendly, eliminating the costs of PPE and specialist disposal
  • Enhance your company perception and repeat sales through reliable supply
