Sorters often involve high investments. When a sorter has been running for years on end it might have lost its perfect fit within your logistic process. This creates headaches for logistics or operations managers. It often takes in a lot of space but is not reaching its full potential anymore. This doesn’t have to mean that you need a brand new sorter. By reviewing the capabilities of the current sorter and how this might fit in your process, an upgrade or alteration might be sufficient. This is where our sorter doctor program comes in.
We first look for symptoms by reviewing system performance and possible pain points. Legacy sorters can be recognized by:
- Increase in sorter errors & downtime
- Increase in missorts
- Worn out components
- Not meeting the required capacity for current or future operations
- Legacy software or controls
Our experts perform a quick scan visit for a thorough examination of your system and logistic goals. We always take into consideration the reuse, repair, or modification of existing components or relocation of your sorter to prevent unnecessary costs. Customers like Camaieu, e5 mode, Jeavso, or Orchestra Premaman have used this program to upgrade or relocate their sorters. Sometimes the functionalities of the sorter have to be expanded as well. Think about upgrades like an auto-infeed to improve efficiency or small item detection for a changing product mix. This service is not limited to Equinox customers and sorters, but we can also take-over, upgrade or relocate existing sorters from other brands.
