Abstract

Storage, transport, stacking and order-picking containers (1) comprise a bottom (2) and four sidewalls (3a, 3b; 4a, 4b). One or more stacking pressure transfer and nesting contours (15a, 15b) are configured on the top rim (16) of at least one container wall (4b) that is configured as a mobile element.

Description

 Storage, transport, stacking and picking containers

The invention relates to a storage, transport, stacking and picking container with a bottom and four side walls.

To store large contents, stackable transport containers are offered with correspondingly large dimensions in the prior art, in which a rotatable about a horizontal axis flap is provided in the side walls, which should allow loading and unloading of contents. The rotary flap is rotatably connected to an insert member which is secured in a corresponding recess in the side wall. Such a container is known from EP-A-0 876 963.

However, a loading and unloading of contents is impossible, especially in large-scale contents in these containers, d. H. The containers must be removed from the shelves and the contents must be taken from above. This is very cumbersome, time consuming and costly. In addition, these containers are not hochregal- in particular by their large volume, primarily rectangular dimensions and suitable for roller conveyors. Furthermore, the known containers are equipped with straight, vertical side walls and therefore can not be transported as a space-saving empties. For this conical stacking containers are recommended.

However, the fact is known that nestable or teilnestbare, ie stackable or stacked in a cross-band after the stacking principle stackable containers are nestable only to the extent that thus applies to stackable conical container, such as an inclination of Sei- tenwand the actual wall thickness of this side wall when nesting against the vertical freed, otherwise a clamping effect would arise.

However, the conicity of the side walls does not allow large-sized profiles or wall thicknesses, so that there is no sufficient stabilization of the container walls. This is a serious disadvantage, especially with heavy contents and correspondingly high load. The rotary stacking principle, with staggered surfaces, results in a spar-like or profiled profile, which achieves sufficient rigidity against buckling of the walls at compression pressure or load. However, in order to obtain a maximum load and discharge opening, this static structure is destroyed as a whole again and can not withstand the requirements in the case of load.

Among other things, the containers must be able to accommodate large-volume contents (eg cable harnesses, cable ducts, etc.). Furthermore, the containers must be stored with contents in high-bay warehouse etc. and can be outsourced again after a production-synchronous retrieval.

After removal from storage, it must be possible for the containers to be relocated directly to the production site or installation site of the contents in transport trolleys or on open shelves. B. manually or with a handling device that docks on the trolley or shelf and pulls the contents of a transport plate or the like. In addition, the greatest possible volume reduction is sought for the empty transport, which allow conical container in particular from the contour.

The invention is therefore an object of the invention to provide a volume-reducible storage, transport, stacking and picking container with high Auflastfähigkeit, in particular also has a maximum size and provided without interference edges, closable removal opening. This object is achieved with the features specified in claim 1 Merkmaien, which allow a composite wall, wherein in a rectangular box, on the one hand preferably at least one of the end walls is movable, for. B. hinged on the bottom side or a total of detachable, and thus after folding away or removing a large or completely freely accessible opening to the container interior provides, and the other immediately integrates immediately contours (Eckausnehmungen, depressions or the like.) For stacking on the rotary and cross stacking principle has , The compact, sturdy composite wall, after being locked to the longitudinal walls, is able to accommodate a very large stacking pressure, whether it is a container with conical or vertical walls. Thus, it is possible to transport the containers according to the invention stacked several times over one another or to nests them in a space-saving manner by the conicity or the stacking edge on the containers in empty or return transport.

Advantageous embodiments are contained in the subclaims. Here, in particular, the features according to claims 5 to 7 contribute to the fact that can achieve a positive, stable composite stack in the space-saving empty transport of nested conical containers through the insertable into the insertion channels of each lower container outer webs of the stacked upper container.

The side wall or end wall is preferably completely open to be able to store or remove heavy, bulky contents without lifting. It can be connected in the floor area by a pivot axis, a hinge, which can be optionally provided for additional stabilization with a locking pin, or the like movable with the container. Alternatively, the end wall can be completely removed, ie form releasably from the adjacent side walls. When the container side is opened by flap-like pivoting or removal of the end wall, a picking opening can be reached from which the contents can be loaded or removed in a simple manner and without restrictive interfering contours, in particular if the side wall is completely opened or removed in the case of large-volume contents , The commissioning opening enabling end wall is here carried out lockable to secure the contents and for additional stabilization of the container without the products stuck at loading or removal on these locks.

Preferably, handle receivers and / or handle handles are incorporated for manual transport. Images for goods tags as well as for transponders guarantee a high reading distance even on high shelves.

The advantageous, contoured teeth on the respective sides or end edges of the container walls grip when closing in the manner of a zipper easily form-fit into each other and ensure even when stacking the container with heavy contents a secure bond.

In addition, in the closed state, the containers are fixed or secured by means of latches which engage or latch into the receptacles correspondingly provided in the container (see FIG. 2).

To remove the contents or to load the container, the locks are raised and turned outwards (see Figures 3 and 4). The removal-side end wall or container wall can now be pulled forward at the handles introduced in each case in the upper area and opened completely (see FIGS. 5 and 6).

In the fully open state is the container or end wall, which remains firmly anchored by the introduced in the bottom area pivot axis, hinge or the like with the container, at least horizontally forward (see Figure 7) or is pivoted by more than 90 ° or she can be completely removed if it can be latched with the adjacent container walls or the like. The contents can be easily removed or stored.

After emptying or loading, the container can be closed again in the reverse order.

Further features and details of the invention will become apparent from the claims and the following description of an embodiment shown in the drawings. Show it:

Fig. 1 in a perspective overall plan view of an embodiment rectangular container in the closed state, i. with locked end wall;

Fig. 2 is a partial perspective view of the container -> closed end wall;

Fig. 3 is a partial perspective view of the container -> slightly raised latch; Figure 4 is a partial perspective view of the container -> unlocked end wall;

Fig. 5 is a partial perspective view of the container -> front wall slightly open;

Fig. 6 is a partial perspective view of the container -> end wall open to about half; and

Fig. 7 is a partial perspective view of the container -> end wall completely open.

A generally shown in Fig. 1, here rectangular and conical container 1 consists of a bottom 2 with four side walls, namely the two longitudinal walls 3 a, 3 b and the two end walls 4 a, 4 b, of which the right end wall 4 b is formed by hinges 5 on the bottom 2 as a pivotable element. Alternatively, this wall element could only be detachably latched to the adjacent or adjacent longitudinal walls 3 a, 3 b and would thus be removable from the container 1.

The end wall 4 b is provided as a stable composite wall on the one hand on its outer side, conical from top to bottom, block-like outer wall webs 6 a, 6 b, designed as outer spar profiles, and on the other hand provided on its inner side, outer inner webs 7 a, 7 b formed as inner spar profiles and a central block 8, which is spaced from the inner webs 7 a, 7 b with the outer wall webs 6 a, 6 b complementary conical insertion channels 9 a, 9 b, and resistant latching with the longitudinal walls 3 a, 3 b formed (see Fig. 7). When stacking empty containers 1 dive the outer wall webs 6 a, 6 b in the insertion channels 9 a, 9 b between the center block 8 and the inner webs 7 a, 7 b a. When the container 1 is closed on the end side (see Figures 1 to 3), the end wall 4 b is provided with locking means 10 formed on its side edges and complementary locking means 11 formed opposite the end edges of the longitudinal walls 3 a, 3 b (compare FIGS and 7) via a type of gearing engagement 12 (see Fig. 1 to 3), which consists of crescent-shaped or arcuate contoured, zipper-like interlocking small teeth, fixed positively in their erected position. To secure the position continue to be raised or lowered and pivotable latch 13, which are mounted with pins 14 in the longitudinal walls 3 a, 3 b and with its other ends in the end wall 4 b are latched (see Fig .. 2 to 5).

In order to absorb the high bearing forces even better when stacking loaded, heavy container 1, are on the apron 17, which also provides a handle or lower handle, reinforced upper edge 16 of both the pivotable and removable end wall 4 b and on the opposite end wall 4 a in the form of recesses a plurality of stack pressure transfer and nest contours 15 a, 15 b formed. In the exemplary embodiment, these are provided in the pivotable end wall 4 b at the head end of the inner webs 7 a, 7 b (see Fig. 7) and transient in an uninterrupted, continuous Obersteg the upper edge 16, the incorporated partial contours of the Stapeleldruckübertragungs- and nest contours 15 a, 15 b having. The stack pressure transfer and nest contours 15 a, 15 b also provide a position-securing positioning support and support when stacking empty containers one inside the other.

If, however, a large, freely accessible, front-side removal opening 18 is to be created for the container 1, as shown in Fig. 7, only the latch 13 is raised (Fig. 3) pivoted about its pin 14 and the interlocking 12 of the end wall b and longitudinal walls 3 a, 3 b by at- For example, pulling the apron 17 dissolved and the end wall 4 b to be folded or pivoted about the hinge 5, as can be seen from the sequence of Figures 2 to 7.
