MOORESTOWN, N.J., June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- OPEX® Corporation, a leader in warehouse automation, is demonstrating Sure Sort™, its highly scalable, cost-effective, and configurable single item sorting system at the IRCE exhibition in Chicago June 6-8 at McCormick Place.
According to Jeff Hedges, President, OPEX Warehouse Automation, "Warehouses and distribution centers are handling increasing volumes of small multi-line orders. Because of the various sizes and shapes of products that make up an order, efficient sorting of items remains an obstacle. Sure Sort was developed in response to this challenge and represents a faster and more innovative approach to small item sorting. Sure Sort is ideal for small businesses looking for a cost-effective entry into warehouse automation as well as large fulfillment operations looking to streamline their processes."
Sure Sort is a robotic small item sorter that delivers a wide variety of items into a compact array of customizable sort locations. Sure Sort delivers up to 3600 items per hour to individual sort locations. Regardless of size, packaging or orientation of an item, Sure Sort will scan items and deliver each piece in a single pass. Sure Sort is smart automation based on proven iBOT® delivery technology, the same technology that drives the OPEX Mail Matrix® and Perfect Pick®. These multi-directional iBOTs are intelligent wireless vehicles that can effectively transport small items and parcels up to five pounds.
iBOTs are powered by ultracapacitors which automatically recharge as they move throughout the system, thus helping Sure Sort deliver excellent energy efficiency. The product will be demonstrated at the OPEX booth, location #2015, for the duration of the show.
