ESD Safe Divider Tote Boxes
Divider totes boxes are the perfect solution when you need to separate a tote box into individual compartments. ESD safe or conductive divider totes, add the ability to protect electronically sensitive materials from electro-static discharge. When combined with an ESD safe cover, a Faraday cage is created protecting your valuable components inside. Other features of our conductive totes are displayed below.
- Strong stacking ridge and innovative ribbed walls ensure high performance and strength.
- Inside compartments can be divided on 1-1/4” centers. Dividers can be added or removed as your conditions change.
- Each tote has a load capacity of 40-lbs.
- Totes stack only; do not nest into each other.
- Compatible with many types of rack, shelving, etc…
- Anti-static label holders available for easy product identification
- Two available lids snap on heavy duty or lay in.
- 13 different sizes available, always in stock.
- Made from a black carbon based polypropylene material.
- Surface Resistivity (ASTM D257) less than 10 to the 5th ohms/square.
ESD safe totes are suitable for various applications including but not limited to industrial, commercial, electronics, and healthcare markets. There are many reasons to use divider totes in your processes, we will cover three major points in the following paragraphs.
Kitting is the assembling of a variety of hardware, components, and parts with a common theme for manufacturing, distribution or shipping purposes. For example, let’s say you are a candy vendor. You have candy bars, bags of chips, etc…that need to be sent out each day to a wide array of customers. In the morning before your distribution runs you kit up your products into one or more tote boxes, depending on needs, for each customer. This allows you to properly store your bags of chips in one compartment, candy bars in another, etc…Additionally, your kitted tote boxes can be stored beforehand to maximize efficiency.
When storing and transporting electronically sensitive materials, protecting those parts is of the utmost importance. Improper storage or transportation of your materials costs you both time and money. In many applications it, especially with electronics, parts must be protected from foreign electronic-discharges and must not touch each other. Conductive totes are the solution for both. When an ESD safe tote is used in conjunction with an ESD lid, a Faraday cage is created, protecting all parts inside from any electric discharge. ESD safe dividers allow you to store each part individually within the container, without any parts touching each other. For example, let’s say you are a circuit board manufacturer. During your manufacturing process you need to move finished boards from one part of your facility to another. If this is done improperly, your circuit boards will be no good, can’t sell them. Conductive totes used with lids and dividers allow you to properly transport your sensitive parts to any part of your plant effectively and safely, assuring that your parts reach their end destination in good working condition.
Creating ESD safe divider totes that can fit pre-determined product quantities and sizes greatly aids in the counting and identification of inventory. Let’s use the circuit board manufacturer example again. You have parts x, y, and z. You can design our conductive totes to fit a pre-determined number of each part. Using ESD safe label holders you can easily identify each tote and their contents, significantly reducing the number of hours spent managing parts in inventory. One box can fit a certain number of x parts, one box for y parts, and so on. Additionally, with dividers available on 1-1/4” centers you can design boxes to fit a certain number of various parts.
