The customizable Mini-Hopper developed by Wisconsin Metal Parts (Waukesha, WI) saves space and reduces cycle times for loading and unloading scrap metal. The hopper can be used with a forklift or a hand truck to eliminate the risk of lifting up a drum or garbage can to empty scrap material. The unit is also mounted to casters to be agile and even easier to unload.
The Mini-Hopper can be customized to fit any space. Adjust height, width and volume to suit all kinds of machines. Easily empty the hopper with a hand truck or forklift depending on space constraints and quickly put the unit back in place.
Designed in-house as a Lean Manufacturing solution, the Mini-Hopper is much safer and more convenient than the industry-standard garbage can. Wisconsin Metal Parts is a contract manufacturer and assembler that serves industries including the military, medical, food service and heat transfer.
