Automatic sorting systems streamline internal warehouse logistics, allowing merchandise to be diverted to different sections of roller paths based on the current content of the buckets, the status of an order or its destination.
Thanks to the great versatility and modularity of the automatic systems of ATOX Technological Solutions, the intelligent roller conveyors designed by ATOX accept all types of sensors and have fully integrated automatic diverters, which act as automatic sorters.
They work in coordination with the light-guided system for pick-to-light and put-to-light operations, with the Disban H automatic dispenser system and with the miniload system. Furthermore, they can be integrated with any WMS system or warehouse management software. This great flexibility means that ATOX automations are used to optimize performance in automatic and semi-automatic order preparation, in reverse logistics operations, in sorting during merchandise reception, etc.
Automatic sorting in order preparation
Automatic sorting systems play a fundamental role in optimizing order preparation. With ATOX Soluciones Tecnológicas automation, warehouses can speed up the picking process through the light-guided system for pick-to-light and put-to-light operations, or have a fully automatic order preparation system through dispensers automatic Disban H or with miniload systems. The roller transport system is responsible for moving the merchandise between different areas of the warehouse and between the different positions of the operators who participate in the preparation of orders.
Wherever a change of path is necessary based on the current content of the bucket, the sensors and diverters integrated into the smart roller conveyors act as automatic sorters achieving:
- The automatic classification of complete orders and incomplete orders due to lack of stock.
- The automatic classification of buckets according to the section or operator of the warehouse, thus allowing several operators to collaborate in the preparation of the same order without leaving their post.
- Automatic classification in the final phase of order preparation, with different roller paths on the output lines depending on the delivery destination.
Metal shelves for efficient classification
Automatic systems in internal logistics allow high-performance warehouses to be achieved. But for this it is also necessary to have the most appropriate metal racking systems for each case.
