BOWE INTRALOGISTICS – a division of the BOWE GROUP, the cross-industry automation specialists headquartered in Augsburg, Germany – has expanded its range of solutions with a highly flexible Pouch Sorter. The BOWE INTRALOGISTICS Pouch Sorter is a high-performance automation solution for high-volume sorting tasks, mainly in e-commerce and omnichannel retail. It provides automated access to single items and enables individual, multi-part orders to be commissioned fully automatically. Fashion (flat and hanging garments) as well as paper, printed and personalized products are typical applications. The system brings several key advantages: the vertical arrangement of the bags results in a small footprint and valuable floor space is freed up in the distribution center because the sorter is mounted on or near the ceiling. The overhead conveyor system’s high level of automation means manual activities during the sorting and distribution process are reduced to a minimum and gentle handling of the goods is guaranteed.
The BOWE INTRALOGISTICS pouch sorter is an extremely reliable sorting system that not only allows dynamic interim storage of items but also supports efficient, cost-cutting returns management. In line with the motto “buffer storage, not re-storage”, best-selling products returned by customers can be promptly collected and temporarily parked in a buffer sector. Items already available in the Pouch Sorter subsequently are prioritized and prevent a new picking procedure. The Pouch Sorter stands out from similar solutions, too, with its various optional features like special quick unloading pouches or the ability to choose between different sorting methods. Thanks to its flexible, modular architecture, the system can be adapted to increased demands without any problem by enhancing the capacity and performance accordingly.
