Description

More info on Q Grip tote containers

Quite simply, the new Q Grip handle system enables the manufacture of cost effective, high performance totes to practically any size.

This is achieved through the use of 3 unique components (patent applied for). This comprises two “end” sections which can be positioned at various lengths apart, plus the “handle” which is fastened centrally over the two ends to secure them in place.

As well as vastly reducing initial assembly times (resulting in lower unit costs), the unique locking mechanism also ensures your tote will be exceptionally robust and hardwearing too.

Another cost saving is also seen through eliminating the need for fixing components such as screws or glue.

Q Grip also minimises any potential design costs when specifying custom totes, the function of the handle allowing for bespoke sizes to be created quickly and easily with very little input from Correx® packaging designers.

Cost savings using custom sized tote containers

However, the dimensional flexibility – creating a tote to the exact size you require instead of the nearest available option – is perhaps the biggest single benefit of Q Grip.

By eliminating wasted space inside the tote box, it reduces the storage requirements at your factory or warehouse (or maximises limited space), and in turn reduces the costs associated with this.

The same also applies to transit of your totes. If you ship parts, components or completed products to different production locations as part of a larger supply chain, the volumetric (and weight) savings of not shipping totes which are too large for the items within can soon provide significant cost savings.

During transit or handling, custom sizes tailored to your parts / products also minimises movement of the contents. This in turn plays a large role in reducing damage caused by impact and mishandling (and the costs associated with returns, replacements etc.).

Besides direct cost savings, custom sized Q Grip totes can have an indirect impact on your company’s profitability too. This is typically achieved through increases in efficiency and productivity.

For example, the strong, ergonomic handles allow for easier handling of totes for your operatives.

The use of compatible internal dividers, as well as allowing multiple items to be stored or moved, can also help with this. The use of Bubble-board and / or cloth covered Correx® for these divisions can improve surface protection too (eliminating scuffs to polished or painted surfaces for example).

Reasons to use Correx® Q Grip Totes

Besides the benefits offered by the unique Q Grip handle, the use of Correx® itself offers a number of advantages too.

Q Grip totes manufactured using corrugated plastic can provide strength and performance levels comparable with moulded plastic boxes, but with unit costs that are considerably lower.

The durable nature of Correx® also offers an extended lifespan over corrugated cardboard (which is typically used for single trip applications). Although more costly initially, the overall “lifetime cost” of a Correx® tote – compared with a corrugated cardboard equivalent – is considerably lower too.

The inherent strength in both Correx® and the structural design used to create Q Grip totes also ensures that, when stacked, the totes will not crush or burst, protecting the items stored within. The integrated stacking corner and retention feature of Q Grip plays a key role in this, however.

Finally, the use of Correx® material itself provides a degree pf physical protection, offering resistance to moisture, oil, grease, and most chemicals. Q grip is even available in an conductive version to protect items from static.

Assembly

How Q Grip works

Firstly, the die cut Correx® 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.
