Auto-ID solutions from VITRONIC take over the efficient recording and integration of consignment data in logistics centres worldwide. With
VIPAC SMALLS SORT, VITRONIC expands its product range and is currently the only provider at present to launch a complete solution for parcel sortation on the market. The intelligent, modular sorting system combines the collection of consignment data with the automatic sorting of smaller consignments as a complete all-in-one solution.
The system can be either used as a stand-alone solution within small hubs and depots, or it can be integrated within existing large-hub sortation processes. Each shipment passes through the infeed, encoding, outfeed, and sorting sections, and is then automatically discharged from the system at the desired point. Special software controls each step of the processes and allows real time data visualization.
In the encoding section, VITRONIC Auto-ID systems identify all shipment data. In addition to capturing high-resolution images, the length, width, height and weight of the shipments are measured and recorded. The systems read and process barcodes, 2D codes and plain text (OCR). All data is automatically saved in the archive system, providing valuable logistic 4.0 insights to accelerate processes in distribution centers and thereby reduce costs.
"Our Auto-ID systems have been reading codes and plain text for years, measuring volumes, recording weights and providing the datl for logistic 4.0. With VIPAC SMALLS SORT we now also offer our customers the automated sorting of smaller shipments. Because the increasing shipment volume makes greater automation necessary", explains Gerhard Bär, one of the managing directors of VITRONIC GmbH. The advantages for CEP service providers include a complete solution, and a single point of contact.
With the "Best Product" award, LogiMAT annually honors innovative products that contribute significantly to rationalization, cost savings and increased productivity in internal logistics. An independent jury awards a total of three prizes in three categories.
