Indicator™ Bins Offer Effective Inventory at a Glance

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 2010, Akron, Ohio — Akro-Mils, a North American leader in storage, organization and transport products, introduces Indicator Bins — an innovative, low-cost alternative to high-end inventory control systems.
Two colors, one bin! The unique design of the Indicator Bin utilizes a bi-color mold to achieve a two-toned bin.
Available in two sizes, the Indicator Bin simplifies visual recognition when supplies need to be replenished. As part of Akro-Mils’ BinTelligence Series, the Indicator Bin allows end users to Stock, Pick, Flip and Replenish: users Stock the bin using the divider to designate volume for the inventory reserve; Pick from the blue side of the bin until reaching the divider; Flip the bin to the orange reserve to indicate inventory levels are low; and Replenish the bin and repeat.
Features of the Indicator Bin include:
• Bright orange trigger color used in Lean and 5S initiatives
• Easy organization of supplies and work-in-process
• Orange reserve prevents stock-outs
• Reduces excess inventory
• Double hopper bin can be filled or picked from both sides
• Large label area on both sides
• Rolled ridge provides added strength when filled to maximum capacity
• Works with 14” wire shelving, 12” steel shelving, and pick rack systems.
