Lifespan Farmer's sorter extended
Friday, 15 May 2015
Department store chain Farmers from New Zealand is using a sorter to sort family fashion and accessories for their 56 stores across the country. The framework of the sorter is still robust but moving parts had suffered from wear and tear. The implementation of Equinox´s Sorter Doctor Upgrade Program, which was completed last week, prolongs the sorter´s lifespan considerably.    

Equinox MHE replaced old trays with new STS XL trays and replaced the chain and sprockets wheels and other moving parts as well. At the same time, several adjustments were made to induction platforms, monitors, photo cells and controls system etc. to ensure that the installation is compliant with the latest safety and production standards. A few years ago, Equinox had already provided the sorter with new software & controls because the old controls system was not supported anymore by the original vendor of the installation. 

With the addition of an extra induction point, the sorter's induction capacity has been doubled. New IT equipment including monitors and cashdesk scanner contribute to the increase of productivity and accuracy as well.

Touch2Colour for multi client order picking
Wednesday, 18 March 2015

The newest addition to Equinox MHE's Touch2-family of manual sorting systems is Touch2Colour. This is a very user-friendly and economical solution for logistics operations with many SKUs or pick faces and medium to low order volume.

Touch2Colour close-up

 

How it works

First, configure Touch2Colour automatically by scanning the bar codes of the trolley and the coloured plates. This can be changed any time.

  1. Operator scans trolley ID bar code and bar codes of empty cartons on the trolley. 
  2. Touch screen shows which picking location the operator has to go to. 
  3. Coloured squares show how many items have to be picked and into which colour corresponding carton they have to be placed. 
  4. Operator taps touch screen to confirm and the next picking location shows up.

Automatisering e-commerce online drogisterij Farmaline
Thursday, 12 March 2015

Online drogisterij Farmaline uit het Belgische Tongeren heeft system integrator Equinox MHE eind februari het contract gegund voor de levering van een automatische sorteerinstallatie. Door de automatisering van het e-commerce proces rondom zelfzorggeneesmiddelen gaat de capaciteit bij Farmaline flink omhoog en wordt de kans op fouten verkleind. 

Farmaline beschikt eind juli over een Slide Tray Sorter Compact met twee inductieposities, 37 uitgangen en een capaciteit van 4.000 trays per uur. 

Bijzonder aan de sorteerinstallatie is dat zij in staat is om hele kleine producten, bijvoorbeeld tubetjes, uit te sorteren. De reden is dat de trays onder een hoek staan, waardoor producten ten gevolge van de zwaartekracht altijd onderin komen te liggen. Onderin de trays is een strook aangebracht met barcodes. Een scanner detecteert het product in de tray door te scannen of alle barcodes leesbaar zijn of niet. 

Operators scannen de producten manueel voordat ze hen in de trays plaatsen, waardoor in het systeem precies bekend is welk product zich in welke tray bevindt. De orders worden verzameld in chutes. Zodra een order gereed is, licht een rood LED-lampje op. De operator haalt de order uit de chute, stopt de producten in een doos, plaatst die op de transportband naar de paktafels en drukt de LED uit om het station klaar te maken voor de volgende order. 

Ook de pakbonnen worden met de Slide Tray Sorter Compact uitgesorteerd. Bij de paktafels scant een operator de pakbon en vervolgens wordt automatisch een adreslabel met code per postbedrijf geprint. Gerede verpakkingen worden gepalletiseerd en zijn dan klaar voor verzending. 

De software & controls van de Slide Tray Sorter Compact worden met een interface gekoppeld aan het WMS van Farmaline

Surprisingly effective Cross Track Sorter
Tuesday, 13 January 2015

A Cross Track Sorter is a clever and cost-efficient piece of shipping equipment to have in your warehouse.

It is a modular, low-tech and surprisingly effective system, consisting of roller conveyors for transporting parcels and trays, and a comb that pops up from beneath the roller conveyors and whose fingers divert items in a perpendicular direction.


With a Cross Track Sorter you are able:
√ To accurately sort and ship up to 3,500 items 
per hour.
√ To occupy a minimum of space in your warehouse
because of its slim design.
√ To discharge items directly into custom containers
or have them cumulated first on a roller conveyor belt.


The Cross Track Sorter handles parcels, poly bags, trays, large envelopes, book, CDs, DVDs, etc.

If you want to know more, please download the PDF with product information.

Sorter talk at Logistics and Transport Forum
Friday, 12 December 2014

Equinox MHE´s Product Development Manager Peter Voet
was invited to speak at the Logistics and Transport Forum conference in Vilnius, Lithuania, whick took place on
December 4, 2014. 


Peter´s presentation was about how sorting installations can improve productivity in warehouses and distribution centres. 

Most DCs start out with manual order picking. According to Peter sorters can improve productivity up to 10 times, provide
a higher accuracy level and offer better data capture possibi-
lities. For a (shortened) version of his presentation, click

The Logistics and Transport Forum is organized every year by Verslo zinios, a Lithuanian magazine. The conference was held in the Litexpo exhibition centre in Vilnius. Over 250 visitors from the Baltic states attended the conference.
