Expanded Metal or Wire Mesh Lined Industrial Tote Baskets:
Match the size and stacking features of typical expanded metal tote baskets, but add options for different mesh linings.
Factories have been using Expanded Metal Material Handling Baskets for decades. The industry has settled into three traditional sizes: 16″ x 10″ x 4-1/2″ Tote Baskets, 21″x 13-1/4″ x 6″ Tote Baskets and 24″ x 13-1/4″ x 6″ Tote Baskets in two sizes of Expanded Metal lining, and in Zinc plated steel or Stainless Steel. These baskets have dual grip handles and a frame design that lets the baskets securely stack without sticking or crushing the contents of the baskets below. Expanded metal is an inexpensive lining choice for many applications, but expanded metal’s sharp edges and burrs will scratch delicute parts. And the openings in expanded metal are too large for many small parts.
Three M Tool developed a Stacking Tote Basket that will interface with most existing Expanded Metal Baskets, but our design allows for wire mesh lining that opens up the design to unlimited lining options. The outer rod frame and stacking dual grip handles are 5/16″ diameter rod with crossing 3/16″ diameter rods supporting the mesh or expanded metal lining. This robust rod frame can be effectively lined with almost any woven wire mesh, welded wire mesh, or expanded metal to suit your application.
