Simplify and optimize your manual sorting process with the Flow Projector

What is Projection Sorting?

Prime Vision created an advanced projection sorting solution called the ‘Flow Projector’.
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.

How the Flow Projector works

  • 1

    The Flow Projector reads a parcels barcode
  • 2

    The Flow Projector projects the destination number on the parcel
  • 3

    The Flow Projector keeps tracking the parcel to display the number
  • 4

    The operator takes the parcel and knows directly where to place it
  • 5

    The operator now makes less sorting errors while sorting faster

Flow Projector: High tech, low cost

One of the key advantages of the Flow Projector is the technology within. The Flow Projector contains recognition sensors, laser projector technology and vision recognition software. This makes the solution not only incredibly versatile but also remarkably valuable 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.

Easy implementation

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.
