Used in warehouse or distribution center areas, such as receiving, order fulfillment, consolidation and shipping, the Dematic FlexSort SL2 sliding shoe sorter has Web-enabled modular software and distributed controls that manage sortation system areas including merge, induct, diverting and takeaway. The unit sorts at rates up to 200 cartons/min. at 400 ft./min.; it can vary operating speeds to accommodate volume flow. The sorter employs multiple drives to provide redundancy; users can select either the non-contact linear induction drive or a profile drive configuration.
