NewStac is a lightweight container line designed for the automotive market. These new containers, from Schaefer's Packaging Systems Division, meet current industry weight standards for hand-held containers, which have been lowered for ergonomic reasons from 40 pounds to 33.
NewStac containers are available in five sizes and a variety of bottom and sidewall options. The containers are offered with or without label pockets and cardholders. All sizes in the NewStac container line use only one style of cardholder. The 5-inch-tall boxes have a new wall configuration that provides a smooth surface onto which labels can be placed. Placards no longer need to be folded onto ribs or wrapped over the sidewalls.
The 4-inch tall totes come with a rimless option for placard placement that has a break in the bottom horizontal stacking rib, allowing a placard to extend further down the sidewall. Additionally, the 4-inch tall containers have a label pocket molded into the sidewall that allows a full-sized Kanban tracking card to fit entirely within the box wall.
The new containers are molded out of high-density polypropylene (HDPP) rather than high-density polyethylene (HDPE), allowing for lower part weights and better impact strength.
