More parcels, more data, more complexity….

Consumers are buying more and more products online, but the ever-increasing volume of parcels brings with it a number of problems for postal operators. As the complexity and variety of the visual information presented on parcels becomes ever-more complex, those parcels needed to be manually sorted and require increasingly more time per parcel to process.

Adding to this, the far larger volumes being sent means that existing sorting lines have to work much harder to meet time-sensitive demands.

THE PROJECTION SORTING IS DESIGNED TO OPTIMIZE MANUAL HANDLING OF PARCELS

The Projection Sorting enables faster manual sortation, more precise decision-making allowing for more parcels to be handled within the same time frame. The concept is rather simple. Items are automatically detected without any manual interaction.

how it works

Data beamed onto the parcel

The Projection Sorting identifies a parcels destination by reading its barcode or alternative data and then projects the number of its sorting destination directly onto the parcel with a laser beam. By tracking the journey of the parcel, the Flow Projector is able to keep the projected number constantly on the parcel until it is collected from the conveyor.

More speed, less errors

As the target destination number is continuously projected onto the parcel, no manual reading of the label is needed throughout the sorting process. Not only will this improve the handling speed but the potential number of sorting errors will also greatly decrease.

Multiple sorting processes

The easily adaptable and scalability of the projection sorting system can be applied in any number of different scenarios: Utilized to sort the incoming products that arrive in large quantities in the warehouse or alternatively to provide destination numbers as a final sorting step to the customer or different depots. But the handling projector can also make a major contribution to order picking. By projecting the order information onto the front of the delivery box, the staff can verify that the item being picked from the shelf is correct when placed in the box.

Projectors can be quickly installed, re-installed or in the unlikely event, replaced.

Integrating with all other Prime Vision solutions and architecture, as well as most existing mainstream sorting and scanning systems, the number of possible uses and variable applications of this pioneering innovation is amazing.

In essence, the renown ease of integration of Prime Vision software opens the possibility of this technology being utilized not just throughout the postal and logistics industry but far further beyond. The applications are only limited by imagination.
