JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Every distribution system can be divided into five basic functions which it needs to perform including receiving, product storage, picking for order fulfillment, sortation and shipping. Although each of these sectors have experienced improvements due to technical advances, sortation is where significant leaps in efficiency are now being made with Dematic's introduction of its FlexSort™ integrated sortation sub-system.
FlexSort is defined by its unique system integration and the efficiencies that the system provides to the high-speed sortation environment. The logic on how the system is controlled is quite different. All sortation functions are controlled as if it is one unified machine. From the pre-merge to the merge, to the transport conveyors feeding the gapping, to the gapping function itself, to the linear sortation and finally the take-away conveyors, the entire process operates with single-source control and full integration.
