FlexSort™ SL2 is a high capacity package sorting system. It is a sliding shoe sorter that incorporates many new design features for improved performance, ease of maintenance and reduced cost of ownership. The system is applied throughout the warehouse or distribution center in areas such as receiving, order fulfillment, consolidation and shipping to increase operational performance, productivity and accuracy. Web-enabled modular software and distributed controls manage all areas of the unified sortation system including merge, induct, diverting and take-away. A key benefit is the ability to produce the highest sort rates at the slowest operating speed: 200 cartons per minute at 400 feet per minute. Automatic speed control allows the sorter to vary operating speeds to accommodate the actual volume flowing onto the system. Peak rate is 400 cartons per minute.
