Next phase completed

18 April 2013

Specialist in the provision of garment conveying and sortation equipment, Dürkopp Fördertechnik, has completed a further extension of its automated sortation system for Next Group, at the clothing retailer's national hanging garment distribution centre near Pontefract in West Yorkshire.

The latest investment involves the installation of 23 additional Pickbuffers and associated conveyor connections which can store a total of 90,000 extra single items. The Pickbuffers enable automatic storage and single item picking for both e-commerce and store orders.

Every garment is individually tracked throughout the system using Dürkopp’s RFID controlled "Rolladapter System”, which carries unique product information in real time for tracking, picking and sorting.  The Rolladapter enables individual hanging items to be transported along an overhead conveyor system from induction to dispatch.
