Improve Workflow and Order Picking with Easy Flow Gravity Hopper

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 2007, Akron, Ohio — Akro-Mils, a leader in storage, organization, and transport products, introduces the new Easy Flow Gravity Hopper and Gravity Hopper Floor Rack. A unique way to improve workflow during picking and sorting operations, the rotational-molded Easy Flow Gravity Hopper provides an exceptional amount of product storage, while saving space through a compact vertical design. When used in conjunction with the Gravity Hopper Floor Rack, Akro-Mils has developed a complete, efficient assembly system, which saves both time and money.
The large, angled top opening of the 18" L x 19-1/2" W x 10" H Easy Flow Gravity Hopper allows for effortless filling, whether used with the Gravity Hopper Floor Rack or freestanding on a workbench. The generous picking area provides easy access to the loaded product, while keeping it neatly contained and sorted. Available in red or blue, the hopper is perfect for fasteners, assembly areas, KANBAN, inventory stock, merchandiser and work cells. Designed for strength and durability, each individual Easy Flow Gravity Hopper has a capacity of 75 lbs., or 900 lbs. total when used with the Gravity Hopper Floor Rack.
The easily assembled 36" L x 36" W x 69" H Gravity Hopper Floor Rack is specially designed to hold six large Easy Flow Gravity Hoppers on each side, increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of picking, sorting, and assembly operations. By reducing the amount of product stored on floors or workbenches, safety and production are vastly improved.  Constructed from 13 gauge steel, Gravity Hopper Floor Racks boast adjustable rail heights and provide efficient, long-lasting storage and organization for any application.
