Specialty Automatic Sortation
Where a significant amount of the overall volume is distributed by the piece, different types of sortation technology are required. Catalogue, apparel and shoe distribution are just a few markets that utilize high speed special sortation equipment.
ViperSort Right Angle Sortation Conveyor: Used to sort small to medium size products. This utilizes a patented design which enables the sorting of cylindrical products, extremely thin items such as blister packs, vinyl envelopes and other problematic items. Sorts up to 120 items per minute.
Angled Roller Belt Conveyor: The ARB Sorter is a low maintenance solution for single or multiple diverts. It is equally adept at moving product to the left or right. Its gentle handling eliminates product damage. The ARB Sorter provides immediate and long-term cost layout savings. Its versatility offers flexibilty in layout design making the ARB sorter a better choice in many applications.
Carousel Put Systems: Carousel put systems work well when a fairly large number of SKU's need to be sorted to a large number of locations. Often used on retail distribution, carousel put systems can create an environment of one-touch sortation directly to the shipper, while also accomodating a very large number of shippers.
Carousel Sorter: Used for manual piece sortation directly to a shipping container, the carousel sorter works well on high volume SKU's. Accommodating up to 500 locations on a single sorter, the carousel sorter can sort up to 4000 pieces per hour per operator. The carousel sorter allows a flexible number of operators to man sort zones, allowing for total system rates to exceed 20,000 lines per hour for a single sorter. The equipment is inexpensive and simple, costing far less than other technologies.
A Frame Sorters: Utilized to facilitate the picking of small individual items, the A-frame is extremely popular with drug and pharmaceutical distribution facilities. As the name implies, individual items are loaded or stacked in two rows of dispensing magazines (one or more magazines per item) that are arranged side-by-side, forming an "A-frame". A belt conveyor passes through the long tunnel created by the A-frame. As orders are filled, one at a time, items automatically dispensed from the bottom of selected magazines are kicked onto the belt conveyor, and then they are carried to the end of the tunnel where they fall into a tote.
