THE BOX THAT MAKES ITS WAY
We’ve called it Space because its strength lies in its broad inner dimensions. This result stems from the optimisation of the structural calculations in the context of a linear, pleasant and efficient design.
Space stems from the decade-long experience in plastic material moulding: it represents the state of the art in the industrial and logistical box and packaging sector.
Space is perfect for internal use in the factory, for manual use and in the miniload and mini-shuttle systems. Allows internal partition up to 16 spaces with comb dividers, and compartmentation with additional containers insertable inside the box.
- Reinforced box bottoms
- Loading units combinable in every detail.
- The boxes have two groups of drainage holes:. Redistribution of the water to diminish the load.
- Zero-gravity load balancing systems and anthropomorphic robots.
- Mould logo. IML logo. BARCODE. RFID. QR VOICE.
- Available with Separate or Hinged cover, for protection of the contents against: dust, unauthorised access, fire-extinguishing liquid.
- Compartment dividers and interlocking dividers.

WE WORK BETTER IN SILENCE
The Space Familog programme includes 3 types of bottoms with different loadbearing capacities. All the tests were conducted in conformity to the EN 13117 standard. TÜV-certified noise measurements
Load-bearing capacity of 20 kg and 200 kg with stacked boxes. Besides manual logistics, they are used in continuous-shelf automated warehouses.
Load-bearing capacity of 50 kg, stacking capacity of 300 kg. Maximum bending 5 mm, when picked on the short side on mini-load systems. The specially-shaped bottom has a perimeter frame with 45° ribbing and a leading edge to minimise the noise impact on the rollers. The central part has perpendicular ribbing with different shapes, slightly concave, to offset the bending with a full load.
Load-bearing capacity of 120 kg with bending below 5 mm with full load. The bending is reduced to below 1 mm with 75 kg load-bearing capacity. Stacking capacity 300 kg. The perfectly smooth bottom and perimeter edge with leading section make the product extremely silent when transiting on the roller conveyor.

REDISTRIBUTION OF THE WATER TO DIMINISH THE LOAD.
WATERPROOF AND FIREPROOF
The boxes have two groups of drainage holes: » 39 holes on the bottom » 20 holes on the walls
The opening of the holes on the bottom can be adjusted (partially or fully) so that the water can drain completely. If cardboard elements are inserted in the box, in case of fire the water used to extinguish it would not be able to drain completely through the holes on the bottom. This is where the 20 holes in the walls become useful: situated close to the bottom, they reduce the amount of liquid and thus the weight bearing on the metal structure.
Thanks to the arrangement of the holes, the water can be redistributed differently to the lower loading levels. This system favours the flow of water to areas that cannot be reached by the sprinkler due to the presence of boxes within the system. As a result, the holes in the boxes help to extinguish the fire more rapidly.
ZERO-GRAVITY LOAD BALANCING SYSTEMS AND ANTHROPOMORPHIC ROBOTS.
RAPID PICKING, SAFE AND CERTIFIED HANDLING
On the upper edges of the boxes, along the short sides, there are four cavities for automatic or manual anchoring. If the box mounts a separate or hinged lid, it can still be handled using the slots along the lid’s perimeter. Handling of the box is certified thanks to laboratory tests conducted by the TÜV certification body.

THE BOX SAYS IT ALL
The graphic customisation of the box is a decisive factor: » it indicates the owner » it facilitates identification also during external logistics processes.
The autonomous interaction with identification systems within the material flow process lies at the core of 4.0 integrated logistics. The use of barcode, QR and RFID systems helps to immediately communicate the box’s contents.

PROTECTION OF THE CONTENTS AGAINST: DUST, UNAUTHORISED ACCESS, FIRE-EXTINGUISHING LIQUID.
We know how important it is to protect the products in loading units. To this aim, we have devised several solutions for any operational situation: from goods stored in mini-loads to those arriving from sub-suppliers.
Both the separate and hinged lids have opening handles on the short sides. Moreover, they can be sealed with straps on the long sides and with plastic and lead seals on the short sides. In both cases, the box can be handled with zerogravity load balancers and anthropomorphic robots.
The full lid offers maximum protection of the contents against liquids, and can be strapped and sealed with plastic and lead seals. This is very important in automated warehouses: if water is prevented from entering the box, the weight bearing on the scaffolding will not increase.
A further advantage: the lid with two hinged flaps. Compared to the hinged lid, it occupies less space when open. When combined with Familog disposable seals, it turns into an excellent opening dissuader as the products cannot be accessed without leaving a visible trace of the tampering.

HOW TO ORGANISE THE INTERNAL SPACE
If often occurs that low-rotation or extremely small products can get lost inside an overly large loading unit. To avoid increasing the locations inside an automated warehouse, we have created two specific solutions, both with an area reserved for attaching the relative barcode of the compartmented area.

To avoid increasing the locations inside an automated warehouse, we have created two specific solutions, both with an area reserved for attaching the relative barcode of the compartmented area. » Compartmental boxes of various heights, to subdivide the boxes into 2, 3 or 4 compartments. The practical side handles guarantee optimal extraction. » Comb dividers, with enhanced stability thanks to the slots in the walls and the pin on the bottom of the box.
