• Compact and space-saving vertical design
• Large, angled top opening allows easy filling
• Can be used on a rack, louvered panel, mounted on a wall, or on a workstation
• First-In-First-Out (FIFO) sliding divider shelf included with 31620 hopper – allows for proper lot rotation

The Easy Flow Gravity Hopper, with custom rack, allows for greater capacity in sorting and stocking work cells, assembly areas and inventory stock.

The new hopper bin also can be used with existing louvered panels by attaching the optional holding bracket to a bin and panel unit.
