Companies looking for ways to maximize their current distribution infrastructures may find a solution in expanding their material handling system capacity. Replacing aging equipment with new equipment operating at higher speeds is a way to avoid new facility construction or the need to add additional work shifts.
FKI Logistex, a supplier of integrated material handling solutions, offers an economical solution to increase throughput and minimize system downtime. As a result of ongoing development at FKI's Technology & Education Center in Cincinnati, the company reports that its UniSort XV sliding shoe sorter now achieves throughput rates of up to 400 cartons per minute. This sliding shoe sorter uses FKI's advanced UniSort MXT software and vhswEDGE merging technologies to increase system throughput without increasing speed.
This latest sortation technology can boost system capacity without major equipment changes, allowing distribution operations to increase the capacity of their existing systems and achieve higher levels of productivity.
