Baker-Rullman Mfg., Inc. announced it completed testing and construction of its new 55-ft. corrugated bin panel available in eight and 10 foot widths. The genesis of the project was customer driven in an effort to reduce field labor and crane time. In addition to the cost savings, several other benefits have been realized with the larger panel. Fewer bolts are needed as horizontal panel seams are virtually eliminated, and because the panel is in a single piece, there are tighter tolerances and more precise construction. Baker-Rullman has also perfected the use of self-threading bolts, which eliminate the need for cage nuts thus saving more time and money.
