Orbis: Collapsible pallet/sleeve/cap system

A bulk packaging solution to store, handle, and ship food, beverage, consumer goods, and pharmaceutical products, the CS CISC OPTE Bulk from Orbis Corporation is a 1200mm x 1000mm pallet, sleeve, and top cap system that features a proprietary “active latch” that enables workers to engage and release the sleeve from the pallet from a standing position, with no bending required.

When collapsed, the 1200 x 1000 CS CISC OPTE Bulk’s sleeve nests within the pallet and top cap and is fully self-contained for efficient return transportation. As a result, 50% more collapsed systems can fit in a standard 53-ft. trailer than alternative bulk packaging systems, according to the company.

This system features multiple sleeve height and configuration options. The system also provides a hygienic handling solution with smooth, all-plastic, highly cleanable, sealed edge sleeves. It reduces product damage with a solid, smooth pallet deck.

This pallet is injection-molded for precise dimensional consistency and is compatible with many palletizers, depalletizers, automatic strapping/banding systems, and conveyors. The 1200 x 1000 OPTE Bulk pallet is molded in high-density polypropylene (PP) plastic and is fully recyclable at the end of its service life.
