In distribution environments, sortation systems are designed to meet the growing demand for smaller order sizes and shipping accuracy while improving efficiency in distribution centers.
Sortation is an ideal solution for separating products from upstream conveyor systems into shipping lanes or other packaging areas. Several sortation devices are available to suit both low and high-speed requirements, for an extensive variety of product types. This is important for many reasons, one being that each product may require a different packaging process. For example electronics sometimes need to be transported in bulk anti static bags to reduce the amount of electrostatic discharge which can damage the electronic.
