Materials handling specialist Industrial Conveying has formed an association with FKI Logistex and has brought its multi-sorter technology to the Australia market.
Utilising a combination of high capacity feeders and automatic induction units, the system is designed to sort a wide variety of small items such as flats and letters through to larger packages and parcels.
With a wide variety of in-feed stations, and both manual and automatic induction options, this high capacity cross-belt sorter can handle a wide range of items up to a capacity of 22,500 items per hour.
Accommodating a wide mix of package types in a single batch, the destination system discharges and positions items to the required orientation in all known transport media: from small items stacked perfectly into totes to parcels sorted directly into containers.
Flexible configuration and a modular design minimises area requirements, allowing installation in the most irregular of spaces.
The average installation usually occupies a footprint of only 70m x 15m.
Barcode reading and labelling, image capture, OCR scanning and video coding are all standard attributes of the multi-sorter’s control and information system.
