Logimat Hall 3, Stand D10
The record volume of over 3,35 billion parcels in 2017, additional growth of up to 5,5% for 2018 and the high demands in the course of Industry 4.0 - the sorting processes in the package logistics have to adapt. Vitronic Dr.-Ing. stone Image Processing Systems shows an intelligent one with “Vipac Smalls Sort” sorting system for the first time a complete solution for the sorting station for recording and sorting smaller parcels and shipments
The intelligent, modular sorting system records shipment data and automatically sorts smaller shipments. The system can be used as a stand-alone solution in small hubs and depots or integrated into large hubs within the sorting processes. Each shipment runs through the sections infeed, encoding, outfeed and sorting and automatically arrives at the desired discharge point. Special software controls all processes and visualizes the data in real time. Vipac Smalls Sort is configured precisely to the requirements of the customer and is even suitable for very small and bulky packages.
Auto-ID systems identify shipment data
Auto-ID systems identify all shipment data in the sorting system encoding section. In addition to high-resolution images, the length, width, height and weight of the items are recorded. The sorting systems read and process barcodes, 2D codes and plain text (OCR). This creates a digital fingerprint for each shipment.
