If your organization uses commercial wire baskets as part of your processes, this article will provide a good understanding of what you need to know.
1. The Sides Don’t Have To Be Flexible
If your industrial demands require baskets with more rigid sides, you have options. In addition to the stiff wire grid basket, container sides can also be made from expanded metal. You can shop products that can serve as soft wire mesh filter baskets or as rigid sided pieces of perforated sheet metal.
2. The Basket Frame Can Be Almost Any Shape
In addition to the flexibility in the available basket sides, a variety of frames are possible. Frames can be any standard shape, and both square and round wire mesh baskets are fairly common. Frames can also be made somewhat flexible to reduce damage.
3. Basket Storing Options Are Part Of The Deal
How do you properly store your basket when it is not being used? You can include a variety of storing options into the desired shape. Hooks can be added to the basket frame for wall storage. Additionally, nesting divots allow easy and stable basket stacking.
4. Stainless Steel Is Not Your Only Option
While stainless steel is one of the most popular alloys in modern manufacturing, it is not the only choice. A wide variety of alloy options can be used to meet the aesthetic or chemical needs of your processes. However, stainless steel is the most popular choice because of its durability and lower cost.
5. Never Assume an Order is Too Small Or Big
Serving the production industry requires deep flexibility in custom design. Modern manufacturing provides everything from tiny pieces of material for electronics to large scale designs for aircraft. Large wire mesh baskets are commonly used for dipping a variety of objects into chemical baths. No project is too big or too small.
Many wire mesh facilities thrive on small orders. Nearly 99.9% of all businesses in the U.S. are small businesses (SBA). Your custom order of one is gratefully received.
6. General Purpose or Standard Baskets May Be Purchased Quickly
The good thing about modern manufacturing is the variety of industries, resulting in a quick turn-over rate. That means that for most businesses, the shape, size, and characteristics of the basket you need have already been created.
