FKI Logistex: Next-generation sorters
FKI Logistex® has launched its next-generation sorters, the LS-4000E tilt-tray sorter (shown) and
the LS-4000CB cross-belt sorter. The new sorters offer a common platform that enhances system flexibility, as well as a state-of-the-art energy system said to reduce operating costs. Equipped with an energy-efficient linear synchronous motor (LSM), both models reduce the overall product life cycle cost (PLCC) substantially without sacrificing speed, capacity, or reliability. The LSM eliminates contact between moving parts, leading to low wear and tear and low noise levels. Both models feature a modular design with low sorter section height and up to 20’ between supports, optimizing conditions for integrating sorters into an existing facility. LS-4000E can sort single-tray items as large as 39 sq” and 110 lb. LS-4000CB sorter provides precise positioning and gentle handling and can sort items as large as 24 sq” and 66 lb.
