SSI Schaefer’s Batch Pick ‘n’ Scan Sorter

23 March 2015/Categories: CILT, Industry News

SSI Schaefer has combined multiple tried-and-trusted products to create a new sorter. This innovative solution integrates efficient batch picking and automatic inspection with scanning of 1D and 2D barcodes, plus downstream sorting of customer orders.  It has a substantially smaller footprint than comparable sorting systems.

The Batch Pick ‘n’ Scan Sorter completes its tasks in four stages. First, at the feed-in station, items of many types and sizes are placed manually onto a V-shaped belt conveyor and automatically separated. Each item is then scanned from six sides using a vision system, and the information captured is processed and analysed. From there they are fed to a linear distributor, synchronised with the sorter. Based on the vision-system data and the customer order, the items are then fed from the distribution table to the sorter, before being dropped into the corresponding order tote.

This sorter is capable of a throughput of 4,500 items per hour, and is suitable for a variety of tasks across diverse industries. It can be used for many purposes – from goods receipt, to returns, to sorting customer orders.

The system can sort any products that are not spherical and do not exceed 260 x 180 x 180 mm in size. Its integrated scanner for 1D and 2D barcodes is designed for highly accurate picking, making it ideal for generating bills of materials and delivery notes, and for tracking batches and serial numbers in the pharmaceuticals industry.
