Q Grip Custom Size Totes

Reduce storage space and increase efficiency with Q Grip totes / trays tailored to your exact requirements

The new Q Grip handle system enables the manufacture of cost effective and durable totes in practically any size. The elimination of wasted space during transit or handling, in addition to maximising the efficiency of your storage space, can lower costs and improve productivity.

 

The innovative design also adds additional strength to Correx® totes and enables them to be stacked, thus saving further space. The durable Correx® construction ensures upfront costs are lower than moulded plastic totes, whilst lifetime costs are considerably lower than corrugated cardboard.

We have purchased thousands of handling products from GWP, including Correx® picking bins as well as boxes, foam, dividers and more. Many of these have been bespoke, being expertly produced by GWPs’ in house designers. As a company, GWP are efficient, friendly and easy to deal with.

  • Correx® material offers performance levels of moulded plastics at vastly lower cost
  • Size flexibility of Q Grip handle streamlines design process / minimises design costs
  • Durability of Correx® ensures increased longevity and lower lifetime costs

Improve the efficiency of your warehouse and fulfilment processes:

  • Size flexibility minimises wasted space, allowing for easier handling and reduced transit costs
  • Allows for efficient handling and storage of multiple items when used with dividers / inserts
  • Ergonomic design of handles offers improved comfort and ease of use
  • Short lead times allows you to cope with fluctuations in demand
  • Branding and colour options can enhance brand awareness
  • Can be manufactured to seamlessly integrate with existing systems / racking

Minimise handling, storage and transit damages:

  • Strength and durable nature of Correx® ensures totes will not split / fail when handling heavy loads
  • Offers resistance to moisture, oil and grease during storage (protecting items within)
  • Integrated corner feature allows for safe stacking
  • Sizes tailored to specific products can eliminate movement  and damage during transit / handling
  • Addition of Bicell dividers and / or foam can provide additional cushioning and scuff protection

How Q Grip works

Quite simply, Q Grip allows 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) – 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.

 

The assembly process is exceptionally quick and simple.

 

Firstly, 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.

As well as vastly reducing 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 Totes minimise the cost of your in plant logistics

Using Q Grip to manufacture custom sized totes offers a number of potential cost savings for your business.

 

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

 

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

 

The same applies to transit of your totes, if these are ever transported to different production locations or even customers / suppliers. The volumetric (and weight) savings of not shipping totes which are too large of the items within can soon prove a significant cost saving.

 

Besides this size flexibility, Q Grip can minimise costs in other ways too.

 

The clever design speeds up manufacturing / assembly times, whilst it also reduces the number of components and processes. For example, there is no longer the need for screws, rivets or glue to fasten the totes.

 

In fact, using Q Grip also minimises design costs, as the function of the handle allows for custom sizes to be created quickly and easily with very little input from the Correx® design department.

 

Finally, the use of Correx® itself offers a number of cost benefits.

 

Q Grip totes provide strength and performance levels comparable with moulded plastic boxes, but the unit costs are considerably lower.

 

The durable nature of Correx® also offers an extended lifespan over corrugated cardboard. Without the need to be replaced anywhere near as often, the lifetime cost of a Correx® tote compared with a corrugated cardboard equivalent is considerably lower too.

Improve the efficiency of your materials handling

Besides direct cost savings, Q Grip can have an indirect impact on your company’s profitability through increases in efficiency and productivity.

 

This can be realised through easier handling of totes for your operatives (thanks to the strong, ergonomic handles), or by using internal dividers which allows for the efficient movement of multiple items within a single tote.

 

You can specify a range of dividers manufactured from Bicell or Correx®, which as well as offering adjustable cell sizes can be tailored to the dimensions of the outer container too.

 

Q Grip also allows for the creation of totes and trays that can integrate seamlessly with your existing fulfilment or manufacturing processes.

 

This can include being the correct size for existing racking and storage, being tailored for use on production lines or even conveyor systems within your plant. Should your customers take delivery of your products or components within totes and have very strict requirements, these can obviously be catered for too.

 

Finally, Q Grip handles can, subject to order volumes, be specified in practically any colour.

 

When combined with the colour choices of the Correx® material, and the potential for external printing, it can create a striking appearance that is consistent with your brand. This can aid brand awareness (particularly if your totes are delivered to customers) and lead to repeat sales.

Protect items during handling and transit to improve quality and lower costs

The use of Q Grip custom sized totes, as well as the cost savings and efficiency gains, can also help to reduce damage to components or products during normal handling operations.

 

For example, the integrated stacking corner and retention feature ensures that the totes can be safely stacked, eliminating damage from totes being knocked over.

 

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.

 

Besides this, by creating totes to a specific size and eliminating wasted space it also helps to minimise movement of the contents during handling or transit. This in turn minimises damages caused by impact and mis-handling.

 

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

 

Finally, the use of Correx® material itself provides a degree pf physical protection, offering resistance to moisture, oil, grease and most chemicals.
