Sorter controls

June 1, 2008




FKI’s UniSort sliding shoe and linear belt sorter controls provide automated calibration, monitoring and diagnostic testing, including tracking alignment, divert precision, shoe assignment and switch mechanism testing, to manage sortation systems. The controls also include automated chain monitoring, lubrication and stretch detection to ensure sorter chains are maintained and working properly. Multi-speed operation technology allows distribution and manufacturing facilities to adjust sortation operations for higher speeds and throughputs on high-demand days or during peak seasons; the control system’s energy-saving mode allows the sorter to shut down automatically during periods of inactivity.
