The Flow Projector is an easily installed, scalable, projection device which greatly improves efficiency in the manual sorting process.

Projection sorting: how it works

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

As the target destination number is continuously projected onto the parcel, no manual reading of the label is needed throughout the sorting process. This will improve the speed of handling of the parcel and will also greatly decrease the potential number of sorting errors.

Projection Sorting: low cost, low impact

One of the key advantages of the Flow Projector is the technology within. By containing recognition sensors, laser projector technology and vision recognition software within the one unit, this makes the solution not only incredibly versatile but also remarkable value for its large capability. The plug-and-play system allows it to be incorporated into most existing sortation systems, further reducing the need for large investment costs.

Any additional training costs of operators using the Flow Projector are negligible as no specific training or experience is required. The operator-friendly nature of the system, means the manual sorting experience curve is much shortened as operators no longer need to build-up the experience to determine the destinations to maintain an effective production flow. Crucially, this allows the option to dynamically change delivery routes, at no notice, to meet changing circumstances..
