New pouch sorter said to raise the bar

25 November 2021

BOWE INTRALOGISTICS has expanded its range of solutions with a Pouch Sorter - designed 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 personalised products are typical applications. 

The system is said to bring several advantages: 

  • the vertical arrangement of the bags results in a small footprint and valuable floor space is freed up in the distribution centre 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 with gentle handling of goods.

The pouch sorter is said to be a reliable sorting system that not only allows dynamic interim storage of items but also supports efficient 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 prioritised and prevent a new picking procedure.

The Pouch Sorter features quick unloading pouches and the ability to choose between different sorting methods.

Bowe can supply end-to-end, made-to-measure automation solutions covering the whole of the internal value chain.

Bowe Intralogistics director sales intralogistics Europe Gunnar Lang, said: “Since expanding our range with the Pouch Sorter, we’re in a position to offer our e-commerce and fulfillment customers integrated and complete logistics solutions.”
