Have you ever wondered how the e-commerce industries can deliver your ordered products accurately? Have you wondered how these specific companies can manage thousands of orders with such precision and speed?
Well, thanks to the Sorting conveyor system.
Sortation is the process of identifying items on a conveyor system and diverting them to a specific destination within an operation.
As the items pass on the belt, there will be a sensor that reads the barcode on the product and sends the information to the central system where all the processes are recorded. The system instructs a particular arm on the belt conveyor to sort the item. All the products are sorted and kept for delivery. The conveyor does the sortation by various inputs like, based on the destination, size. Sorter arms adjust their speed while sorting them based upon the type and quality of the material.
Advantages of Sorting conveyor:
- Low maintenance costs
- Automatic loading of particular items
- Automatic weight registration
- Sorting and grading the product by shape and size
- Improved order accuracy
- Fewer accidents,
Essential things to keep in mind while using sorting conveyor:
- Type of products to be sorted
- Throughput rate
Type of products to be sorted:
We need to be sure what are the types of product to be sorted, whether they are in cartons, package because depending on the material, the arm sorters will adjust their speed so that no damage should happen. Dimensions of the box are also measured
In industries the rate of products to be sorted per minute or per hour basis is measured to increase the efficiency in the future.
Upgrading technology in industries is an essential step toward increasing efficiency and reducing human-related errors, Especially in order fulfillment, materials handling, warehousing, and e-commerce industries have come a long way in the past years and decades.
Different types of Sorting conveyor:
- Pivoting wheel sorter
- Narrow belt sorter
- Crossbelt sorter
- Sliding shoe sorter
- Push tray sorter
- Pop-up sorter
- Linear sorter
Depending upon the client’s requirement, any one of the solutions is proposed.
We at Flexli Technologies are committed to bringing the scalable sortation solution with thorough R&D which satisfies the need of the client.
