Feeding Machines From Totes, Containers and Baskets
While baskets, totes and gaylords may be a convenient method of parts storage and transport, they can be a real pain for the workers.  Accessing the parts requires bending, stretching and awkward lifting which can lead to fatigue or injury.

It doesn't matter if the container is large or small, the problem is the same - getting to parts at the bottom is a chore.

The solution is to present the parts to the worker for easy access. For large/tall baskets that means tilting. For large/short baskets that means lifting (and possibly tilting too).
