Your task is complex — different materials going to different destinations at different speeds. If you have a fairly high flow of cases, totes or pieces headed to different destinations, you need a sortation system. Pop-up and pivot wheel, tilt tray, cross belt, pusher, paddle, and shoe sorters are just a few of the many sortation technologies WEPCO systems engineers can use to direct traffic towards increased productivity in your facility.
Low-speed sortation technology — is called for if your sort rate is less than 30 items per minute.
Medium-speed sortation technology — is appropriate when your sort rate is between 30 and 100 items per minute.
High-speed sortation technology — is required if your sort rate is over 100 cases per minute.
High-speed piece sortation technology — works in large-scale distribution facilities when much of the volume is distributed by the piece — such as apparel and shoe distribution.
