FKI Logistex introduces the new UniSort VII entry-level sliding shoe sorter, an upgrade to the company's UniSort V model. One of the major upgrades found in the UniSort VII is its all-electric switching system. Where the UniSort V required compressed air to power the switching mechanisms that controlled its sliding shoes, the UniSort VII uses electric switch technology similar to that found in FKI's high-end sliding shoe sorters. The electric switching makes it quieter and less costly to run.
The UniSort VII also offers a new conveying surface composed of aluminum slats. The slats are designed for small-item sortation and are now available as an alternative to the standard metal tubes. The tubes themselves have also been upgraded from the previous model. They are more durable and lightweight, enhancing their energy efficiency and the system time between repairs.
Operating speed for the UniSort VII remains at the standard 350 feet-perminute of the UniSort V. It offers positive, gentle sortation for both single-sided and dual-sided applications and a choice of controls ? either PLC-based or the FKI Logistex BOSS PC-based control system. The UniSort VII features a 30-degree divert angle and standard widths to match the full line of FKI Logistex conveyor systems.
