The flexibility of the modular system enables features such as exceptionally small radii for the curves and a high number of induction units and destination chutes to be integrated into the tightest sortation footprint.
Meeting customer expectations by delivering the correct items with each shipment is crucial, and sortation accuracy is equally important to enable a company to maintain a competitive advantage.
The BG Sorter® Compact CB uses proven cross belt technology and a flexible sortation process which enables high levels of accuracy and tracking. The accuracy is delivered by integrating smart induction and cross belt technology.
Smooth control for efficient operation
BEUMER Group’s extensive experience in the successful integration of different control systems for automation delivers a smooth and faultless interface.
Control and data analytics
End-to-end control of the sortation process is supported by full integration between the sortation system’s SCADA, a Warehouse Management System (WMS) or other systems.
To streamline warehouse operation, order-picking and packaging and shipping can be coordinated to optimise throughput and reduce the handling cost per item. For CEP sortation, the priority is often to maintain productivity and throughput by minimising downtime at the in-feed sections. Even with its small footprint, the system design specifically addresses these key priorities for each business and operation.
The system is digital in the sense that it provides the option of using data analytics to improve operational efficiency within the existing system layout. Over time, distribution centres can choose to continually enhance performance by using data analytics on operational, maintenance and management level.
