At its booth, Beumer (Booth 3603) is showcasing a cross-belt sorter, double-density tilt-tray sorter, scaled-down cross-belt sorter and a Crisplant LS-4000E shipping sorter. The company is also highlighting real-time sorter performance management dashboards on large-screen monitors.
“Our focus is on improving overall productivity with accurate, productive equipment that’s easy to maintain and can be configured to suit any building’s floor space,” said Tony Barr, Beumer’s chief marketing officer and VP of corporate development.
The centerpiece of the exhibit—the BS 7 high-capacity cross-belt sorter—is used by Chico’s, DSW, Land’s End in e-fullfillment, retail/wholesale replenishment and parcel operations, said Barr. Booth visitors are invited to induct their own product and test system performance with three sample discharges: direct to bag, direct to tote, and accumulation chute. The sorter features a contactless energy/data supply and linear induction motor drives to sort a variety of items safely and gently to the right destination, regardless of size, shape or surface characteristics, he said.
On the other end of the spectrum, the low-cost Crisplant LS-4000E loop tilt-tray shipping sorter enables goods to be discharged on either side in a guided, two-dimensional process without any catapult effect. “It is built to handle large boxes and small polybags on the same system,” said Barr. “The LS-4000E can be configured with pre-engineered manual, semi-automatic, or fully automatic induction lines.”
