It is extremely stable, applicable to a wide range of purposes and fits cabinet shelf dimensions perfectly. The newly designed front window made of transparent polypropylene can be easily slid down to open without having to move the container itself or remove anything from it. You can directly access the items inside.

              • Large volume containers

              • BITO's large volume containers are an outstanding alternative to mesh box pallets: at half the size and many times lighter, they are both highly stable and resilient.
                  • BITO SL 86 large volume container

                  • Exceptionally durable, with a large half-drop door

                    The BITO SL 86 large volume container is outstanding in all areas of application: this large-size bin is ideal for storing large or heavy goods during fabrication, storage or picking. The box can hold a weight of up to 500 kg. Unique and only available from BITO: the box-width, sealable half-drop door! It offers maximum access to the goods inside. A specially developed colour concept makes it easy to identify these large volume containers and their contents.

                  • BITO XL 800x600 large volume container

                  • The BITO XL series goes large

                    The BITO XL 800x600 large volume container steps up the BITO XL series to an 800 x 600 mm format designed to hold contents weighing up to 200 kg. The basic structure matches the rest of the XL series. This large volume container can be optionally mounted with runners for forklift or lift truck transport, turning it into a light, modern handling bin.

                  • BITO MB 800x600 large volume container

                  • Stackable runner-mounted containers

                    The BITO MB 800x600 complements the rest of the stackable multi-purpose series of BITO MB containers in a large-format 800 x 600 mm version. The container can be optionally mounted with runners, making it compatible with forklift and lift trucks. Even with runners added, this large volume container’s tapering design is preserved, allowing you to stack it to save space. The smooth inner and outer walls prevent dirt build up and are easy to keep clean.

                • Shelving for unit loads

                • Whether you have to handle non-palletised loads, cartons, bins, lever arch files or products without packaging – for your operational productivity it is important that your products are safely stored and can be immediately located and accessed to make product picking as easy as possible.

                  BITO storage solutions for unit loads include shelving, multi-tier installations, mezzanines, carton live storage facilities and automated storage systems. They have been designed for use with small, large, light weight and heavy weight loads as well as bulky and long goods and are manufactured with state-of-the-art technology which guarantees a consistently high product quality.

                  Whatever your requirements, organisational structure or features of your premises are – at BITO, we have the products, know-how and experience to work out the best storage solution for your warehouse or workshop. Our aim is to optimise your intralogistical processes to save you space, time and money.
                    • Shelving

                    • Exceptionally adaptable, highly flexible warehouse fixtures: BITO shelving installations are designed to high quality standards and are suitable for storing any items imaginable. Their height and length can be adjusted to fit perfectly into any room, and they are easy to assemble and rebuild. They can be easily expanded later on and are ideal for storing and picking loose items and any units and packages not stored on pallets.
                        • Industrial shelving

                        • A shelving rack for the industrial sector needs to meed a number of different requirements. BITO shelving installations are designed to be expanded and adjusted to meet each customer’s individual desires and needs.

                          BITO high bay shelving lets you make full use of vertical space, while lower shelving variants make it easy to access goods even without ladders.

                          Tall or heavy loads, large items, small packages or BITO containers - whatever the size or weight of the goods you store, our shelves are available in widths and load capacities to match.

                          BITO shelving installations for the industrial sector are available in a number of different types: Type EL (extra light), Type L (light), Type M (medium), Type S (heavy) and Type Large-Scale Shelving. The shelf capacity varies by category (100 - 350 kg), as does the racking run carrying capacity (800 - 1600 kg).
                        • Supply shelving

                        • BITO shelving makes for ideal supply shelving. It can be restocked from both sides following the first-in, first-out principle (FIFO), making it well suited for supplying items to assembly points.

                          The shelves can be conveniently supplied from one side while components required for the assembly and finishing process are quickly and easily retrieved from the other side. The shelving system enables clearly visible, well-structured supply of parts and goods and also provides sufficient space for a surplus reserve.

                          Supply shelving is available in a single deep version (for one container) or a double deep version (for two containers). It is also available with straight or inclined shelves. The inclined versions are particularly well suited for clear presentation of items and swift, ergonomic retrieval of goods.
                        • File shelving

                        • BITO shelving is the ideal solution for space-efficient archiving of files and folders, even for long periods of time.

                          Customised to suit the file folder size, the shelves are available in a single deep version (suitable for one row of folders per shelf) and a double deep variant (for two rows of folders per shelf) - available in a galvanised or light grey (RAL 7035) version, depending on your preferred colour.

                          The integrated rear retaining lip prevents files from sliding off the shelves. A side safety barrier, available separately, prevents folders from falling off the sides of the shelves.
                      • Multi-tier installations

                      • BITO multi-tier installations mean cost-effective storage. The multi-tier shelving installations are designed to make full use of the vertical space in your warehouse, multiplying available space within the same surface area. The wide range of designs and corresponding accessories means that the multi-tier installations are suitable for use in any industry.

                        Multi-tier installations are available in a number of different designs: as a single-tier version with a mezzanine on top, or as a multi-tier construction. Stairs and/or lifts connect the walkways/aisles on different tiers.

                        Positioning the shelving tiers one over another at different levels reduces travel distances for employees, allowing you to complete jobs more quickly.
                          • One- or two-tier shelving installations: a system comparison

                          • In comparison with a single-tier design, a second layer of shelving increases the effective area by up to 100 per cent, with the available storage space increasing correspondingly. This improves surface utilisation and cuts down on building occupancy costs.

                            BITO offers two solutions for two-tier installations. You should choose solution 1 or solution 2 depending on which staircase arrangement is optimal for your warehouse. The degree of space usage, the storage volume (+ 86 per cent each) and the maximum number of shelves (+ 68 per cent) vary depending on the positioning of the staircase - for smaller racking installations, this is therefore of fundamental importance.
                          • Multi-tier installations from BITO - variants

                          • Multi-tier installations can be designed either as single tier shelving or racking with a mezzanine on top or as a multi-tier construction. Additional work areas can be created on the floor level as well as on the tiers on top.


                            Our representatives will meet you on-site to discuss the optimal design for your needs. Depending on your unique working process and material flow, as well as your requirements and current conditions, we’ll show you precisely which advantages each system offers you and which design is best suited to your business. Together, we’ll then draft the perfect bespoke solution for you.
                        • Mezzanines

                        • The BITO mezzanine system is highly stable, flexible and available in a number of variants. This means it integrates well into many different warehouse designs.

                          The installation’s multi-tier design lets you design each tier to meet a different set of requirements, making effective use of cost-intensive storage space.

                          If you need to store heavy loads, you need to use a corresponding high-capacity, suitably designed shelving system. Thanks to an extremely stable self-supporting steel frame, the mezzanine system is ideally suited to storing heavy loads - for storing distributed loads up over 1,000 kg/m², given a suitably sturdy warehouse floor.

                          Columns and joists form a rigid base structure which does not require cross bracing, permitting access from all sides. Mezzanine platforms/tiers can be adjusted at any required height.

                          We work together with you to plan your mezzanine and adjust its construction and equipment to precisely meet your specific requirements.
                            • Automated small parts storage

                            • Modern logistics centres, which need to manage a consistently high volume of orders, need storage systems which ensure constant availability of all items.

                              Automated small parts storage systems enable compact storage and fully automated supply of goods, allowing high picking rates for a large number of small items. The items are automatically moved along conveyors to the picker based on the goods-to-operator principle.

                              Depending on your turnover rate and load carrier type, this system is available as a single- or multi-position system and in a single-, double- or multi-tier design. Items are stored and retrieved using service vehicles.

                              The high-shelf design means that an automated small parts storage system requires a relatively small base surface area. The state-of-the-art service vehicles move through exceptionally narrow lanes, which also increases the available storage area..

                              As a rule, automated small parts storage systems consist of a racking system with one or more lanes, a service vehicle, conveyors, small parts containers for storing and transporting goods, and the management software which ensures that the process remains organised and that individual items are always available.

                              BITO adjusts the automated small parts storage system to exactly match your space requirements, the weight of your stored goods, the picking plan and your product turnover rate. To ensure maximum system safety, BITO racks are produced in strict compliance with the narrowest finishing and assembly tolerances possible.
                                • Single position system

                                • Single-position storage is the most common system solution. In this system, each shelf has one container, tray or box stored on support bars (single or double deep).
                                • Multi-position system

                                • In this system, multiple containers or boxes are stored on each shelf single or double deep. Multi-position systems are often used for storage units of moderate individual weight.
                                • Integrated buffer stock

                                • In automated small parts storage systems, materials are supplied on the bottom flow level. The buffer zone above ensures picking stations are constantly resupplied. The system can be designed as a single- or multi-position system depending on the weight and composition of the goods and the type of load carrier.
                                • Shuttle solutions

                                • Modern picking, distribution and consolidation warehouses are using shuttle systems more and more frequently. This high-tech, exceptionally dynamic solution allows you to multiply your goods turnover rate several times over. If multiple shuttles are used, the throughput rate increases correspondingly.
                              • Carton live storage rack

                              • Carton live storage racks supply goods on a FIFO basis. Picking works based on the operator-to-goods principle.

                                The racks are loaded from the rear. The racks move along plastic rollers to the opposite side, where they can be retrieved as and when needed.

                                In carton live storage racks, items are stored individually, in plastic containers or as a single packaged unit.
                                  • BITO carton live storage

                                  • Carton live storage racks are suitable for use as supply racks for finishing processes and as storage and picking racks. They can be used in a variety of situations and enable compact, clearly organised storage of goods. Reduced travel distances increase system efficiency; working times are reduced while picking performance is increased, and investment costs often pay off within a year. A highly sophisticated, ergonomic design reduces the physical stress placed on employees.
                                     
                                    • Flexible use
                                    • Increased efficiency
                                    • Compact, clearly organised storage
                                    • Sophisticated ergonomics
                                    • Rapid amortisation
                                  • BITO carton live storage with buffers

                                  • Buffered carton live storage shelves are designed so that goods are supplied for picking on the bottom level, while pallet spaces on the top level offer additional storage space. The single positions are used as item buffers for individual flow shelf levels in order to keep travel distances as short as possible when replenishing stock. This also allows vertical space to be used in full.
                                     
                                    • Picking area on the bottom level
                                    • Pallet spaces as a buffer zone on the top level
                                    • Shorter distances for in-feeding
                                    • Efficient use of space
                                  • Automated BITO live storage

                                  • Automated or partly automated flow shelves enable particularly fast job throughput rates. Meanwhile, the picking error rate approaches zero and storage space is used optimally. BITO works only with carefully-chosen, well known fork lift truck manufacturers when designing the automated flow shelves.
                                     
                                    • Shorter job throughput times
                                    • Significantly fewer picking errors
                                    • All space fully used
                                    • Carefully chosen system partners
                                • Pallet racking systems

                                • BITO offers a range of storage solutions for palletised goods. From classical pallet racking to pallet live storage, drive-in racking, automated pallet storage and shuttle-assisted storage, we offer a complete set of storage solutions to optimise pallet storage at your warehouses and picking locations according to your exact needs.

                                  We’ll help you choose the ideal system for your requirements, as well as handling project planning and supporting your project throughout the installation process and beyond.
                                    • Pallet racking

                                    • Classical pallet racking remains, as ever, the most popular storage system for palletised goods - despite the increasing use of modern technology in the storage and picking fields.

                                      The system allows convenient access to every pallet. Moreover, the racking configuration can be easily modified and extended. Flexibility and relatively low investment costs have made this system essential for storage and order picking.

                                      With useful and practice-proven accessories, the BITO pallet racking system allows optimal storage of palletised loads in all shapes and sizes.

                                      The most common configuration is multi-position storage with 2 - 4 pallets per bay. If pallets are buffered or if complete pallet loads are to be handled, pallets are stored short side facing. For order picking, however, pallets are generally stored long side facing in order to facilitate access.

                                      The pallet racking system is available in a range of versions, the most common of which are broad aisle racking, narrow aisle racking and mobile pallet racking.
                                        • Broad aisle racking

                                        • Broad aisle racking is the standard solution for pallet racking. In this design, servicing is generally done with front stackers, reach trucks or man-up stacker cranes. The aisle width is intended to suit fork lift truck dimensions. The floor level can be conveniently serviced with a hand pallet truck or an electric lift truck.
                                        • Narrow aisle facility

                                        • This high-rise structure with narrow aisles enables ideal use of vertical capacity and efficient use of floor space. As a rule, narrow aisle facilities are serviced with man-operated stacker cranes or order picking trucks. This allows picking of smaller unit loads from all racking levels. Guide rails and inductive steering ensure that service vehicles always keep the ideal distance to the installation.
                                        • Mobile pallet racking

                                        • The use of mobile pallet racking reduces the need for costly floor space. Thanks to the racks’ mobility, only one aisle needs to be open for picking at any one time; the rest of the space is filled as efficiently as possible with closely-packed racking runs. Each of the individual racking runs can be relocated, allowing access to all pallets at all times. Instead of one broad aisle wide enough for truck circulation, it is also possible to open several smaller aisles.
                                        • Automated servicing

                                        • Alongside classical palletised storage and retrieval, automated picking and the use of shuttle carriers are growing in importance. The higher initial investment costs pay off quickly thanks to significantly faster picking and order processing.
                                        • Other designs

                                        • Multi-tier pallet racks allow multiple employees to pick goods at the same time to process significantly more orders.
                                          BITO pallet racking also works perfectly with other racking systems such as live storage. It can be combined into a broader system, adjusting perfectly to the logistical processes in your warehouse.
                                      • Mobile pallet racking

                                      • Make optimal use of storage space
                                        Mobile pallet racking saves valuable warehouse space, offers high storage capacity and guarantees constant access to all stored items.
                                          • PROmobile

                                          • The mobile pallet racking system BITO PROmobile is a wheeled pallet racking system. Each shelf in the pallet racking block is mounted on a mobile carriage operated by electric motors. The carriages move along rails embedded in the floor.

                                            The system is controlled directly using operating elements on the rack itself or using a convenient remote control system. It is also entirely possible to integrate the entire system, including the controls, into your existing warehouse management system.

                                            The use of mobile pallet racking systems reduces the need for costly floor space. Thanks to the racks’ mobility, only one aisle needs to be open for picking at any one time; the rest of the space is filled as efficiently as possible with racking runs. Each of the individual pallet racks can be relocated, allowing access to all pallets at all times. Instead of one broad aisle wide enough for truck circulation, it is also possible to open several smaller aisles.

                                            A mobile pallet racking system can be directly integrated into a newly-built warehouse or fitted into an existing one.
                                          • PROmobile synchro

                                          • The BITO PROmobile synchro mobile pallet racking system is distinguished from the BITO PROmobile system by its permanent distance monitoring. This ensures that the carriages move perfectly parallel to one another at all times, even when shelves are carrying different weights or unbalanced loads. Rather than using traditional mechanical control, the system is electrically operated, ensuring that carriages stand and move parallel to one another. Aisle widths can therefore be planned down to a few millimetres and optimally divided.
                                        • Automated pallet storage

                                        • Fast order through lead times, low error rates
                                          Automated pallet storage is the fast, cost-effective alternative to manual logistical processes and it is becoming increasingly relevant.
                                            • The system

                                            • Automated pallet storage systems are typically fully automated systems. However, they can also be realised as partially automated solutions. These are usually used as buffer or reserve storage systems.

                                              Implementing an automated system saves a great deal of time within a business’ logistical processes. Compared with a manual variant, automated systems produce clearly identifiable financial benefits, particularly when examining carton live storage, pallet live storage, and pallet racks. Automated solutions therefore represent a real alternative to manual ones.
                                            • Automated pallet live storage

                                            • Continuous order picking - of complete pallet loads as well as of individual storage units

                                              In an automated pallet live storage system, pallets are stored with the help of a carriage (see diagram) or a lift truck. Loading is done automatically by a mobile feeder system. The picker always has a second pallet available in reserve. As soon as this reserve pallet has moved to the picking face, the buffer storage position - now empty - is immediately replenished.

                                              To increase the available storage space, additional static storage zones above the aisles can be assigned carriages to make full use of vertical space. Alternatively, you can design the system with additional pallet live storage channels in mind, allowing you to store multiple pallets in a row.

                                              » On the picking face, you can either pick from individual storage units or retrieve entire pallets using hand pallet or fork lift trucks.

                                              » The roller conveyor section on the picking face is divided into three sections to allow you retrieve pallets using hand pallet or fork lift trucks. The space between the conveyors is fitted with drive-in plates, allowing the service vehicle to drive straight in.
                                          • Pallet live storage

                                          • Choosing the right storage system can save your business significant time and expenses. Perfectly coordinated logistical processes therefore play a substantial role in your business’ success.

                                            BITO PROflow live pallet storage enables highly compact, clearly arranged warehousing. Process times are cut down and intralogistical flows become easier to calculate. This avoids downtime, increases warehouse productivity and reduces storage costs.

                                            A pallet live storage system eliminates the need for service aisles within the block, saving 60 percent more storage space than a standard pallet rack.

                                            Unlike block storage, pallet live storage also permits direct access to all stored items at all times. This guarantees high flexibility and reduces the time taken to pick goods.

                                            BITO PROflow works based on one of two principles:

                                            The FiFo principle

                                            In the FiFo (first in, first out) principle, the first item stored is also the first to be retrieved. Each individual channel in a block is loaded with pallets from the loading side. Products are picked from the opposite side. A load separator on the picking side ensures that service vehicles can retrieve the pallets without having to compensate for lane pressure. This helps prevent damage to goods.

                                            The LiFo principle

                                            In the LiFo (Last in, first out) principle, the last item stored is the first to be retrieved. Goods are both stocked and retrieved from the same side of the rack. The pallets are pushed into the live storage rack against the incline with the help of a service vehicle. This rack type is therefore known as push-back racking.
                                              • BITO FlowStop load separator

                                              • Unlike traditional load separators, the BITO Flow-Stop is located outside conveyor vehicles’ area of operation in order to prevent damage caused by collisions. Repair costs within your warehouse are therefore dramatically reduced.

                                                The separator also helps ensure that pallets are always correctly positioned and that the service vehicle can easily retrieve goods from the rack without having to compensate for lane pressure.

                                                The storage system is safer and more convenient to use; there is no need for repeated corrections to fully configure the load carrier.
                                              • Tiltable roller conveyor

                                              • The live storage system’s roller conveyors are tiltable. This makes cleaning the floor under the rack fast and easy. This is particularly important for businesses supplying groceries or pharmaceuticals, for whom warehouse hygiene and cleanliness are the top priority.
                                              • Modular system

                                              • The BITO module system offers a wide range of options to help design your pallet live storage system. The high degree of standardisation enables versatile storage solutions and guarantees our ability to supply and assemble your system in the shortest possible time. You therefore benefit from a high degree of flexibility and a new storage solution which is ready to go quickly.
                                            • Drive-in racking

                                            • BITO drive-in racking enables highly compact storage of pallets in multiple horizontally and vertically arranged aisles. The vehicle drives into the aisle and places the pallets from back to front on storage rails running fully from one side of the rack to the other. This makes optimal use of surface area and storage space.

                                              Drive-in racking is particularly well suited for storing large volumes of the same item, for pressure-sensitive or unstable goods, for small- to medium-sized product ranges, and for low-turnover items. This racking system is also ideal for seasonal or buffer storage, and for storing products with a long shelf life.

                                              Goods are stored and retrieved using a service vehicle which drives into the aisle. Goods are always loaded and unloaded from the same side. Operating based on the LiFo (last in, first out) principle, the last pallet stored is then the first to be retrieved. This system should therefore only be used to store goods where direct access to specific pallets is not required.

                                              Compared with BITO drive-in racking, BITO drive-through racking has all of the same benefits - but it can also be used from both sides: goods are stored on one side and retrieved from the other. Operating on the FiFo (first in, first out) principle, the first load stored is therefore also the first to be retrieved.
                                                • Shuttle-based compact storage

                                                • The fork lift-operated shuttle

                                                  BITO PROmotion is a battery-powered pallet conveyor system for lane-based storage (using lithium-ion batteries) It is ideal for all types of pallets - including low-quality ones. With the help of a conventional fork lift, the shuttle moves from one storage lane to another. Using a robust remote control system, it can independently transport stored goods through the lane. A fork lift is also used to load and unload pallets.

                                                  The shuttle-based compact storage system is the alternative to drive-in racks, push-back racks and pallet live storage. It can be operated based either on the FiFo (first in, first out) or LiFo (last in, first out) principle. It is ideal for all industries and can even be used in cold storage areas. BITO PROmotion can carry pallet weights of up to 1,500 kg.

                                                  Maximum safety: Working together with the mutual indemnity association BGHW Mannheim, specialist safety technology has been developed and implemented for this system.
                                                    • Container transport

                                                    • Driverless transport systems (DTS) guarantee rapid material transportation and reduce travel distances. They are therefore becoming more and more popular among manufacturing companies.

                                                      BITO-Lagertechnik Bittmann GmbH has developed one such driverless transport system: LEO Locative. This user-friendly automated system is quickly installed, after which it is immediately ready to start running. LEO Locative follows an optical path laid down by floor markings, making sure never to block aisles or gangways. It can carry containers and cartons weighing up to 20 kg.
                                                          • LEO LOCATIVE

                                                          • A versatile, incredibly user friendly driverless transport system with a straightforward installation process and control system.
                                                      • Storage systems for long loads

                                                      • To store long, bulky items, you need specialist storage solutions customised to suit the size and weight of your stored goods.

                                                        Storage systems for long loads such as pipes and profiles, flat items such as wood and steel panels, or bulky goods, must therefore be individually custom-made, tailored not just to the goods stored but also the storage space available to you.
                                                          • Cantilever racking

                                                          • The system

                                                            This flexible racking system lets you store long items such as profiles and piping, as well as flat items such as wood and steel plates and other bulky construction components.

                                                            The rack consists of columns and cantilever arms and can be configured for either single or double sided use. Depending on the chosen coating, the racks can be used indoors (plastic-coated or painted) or outdoors (hot-dip galvanised).

                                                            BITO customises the dimensions of each individual component. Depending on the size and weight of the goods stored, and the available space, we design the system to meet your exact needs and integrate it into your existing warehouse and logistical operations.

                                                            We offer a broad range of uprights and cantilever arm profiles with numerous material strengths and designs.

                                                            Depending on the height and weight of the goods stored, we offer three different options: cantilever racking for light (type L), medium (type S) and extra-heavy (ES) loads. By combining these types with the right accessories, we can meet your specific needs and desires.

                                                            Our products, and the professionally planned customised racking systems for long loads, are based initially on your unique data (warehouse size and equipment, existing foundation, type of goods stored).
                                                              • Light and medium weight goods (Type L and S)

                                                              • The light to medium load variant of the cantilever racking system consists of uprights with cantilever arms, adjustable in intervals of 60 mm without the need for bolts. Cantilever arms and shelves are easily assembled and adjusted, as they do not need any bolts or screws.

                                                                The racking system can be expanded as required and can be configured for single or double sided use. Item weight permitting, goods can be stored and picked by hand. However, the system is also compatible with all modern service vehicles. The system is also ideal for automated use.
                                                              • Extra-heavy goods (Type ES)

                                                              • Cantilever racking for extra-heavy goods is assembled and adjusted with screws. Cantilever arms and shelves are height adjustable in 50 mm or 100 mm increments. The uprights and cantilever arms consist of solid hot-rolled IPE steel profiles, making them particularly robust and resilient. They can be configured for single or double sided use.

                                                                Cantilever racking for extra-heavy goods should only be used in combination with lift trucks or a crane, depending on its height and the goods stored.
