Ground-Breaking Sortation
RFSS Robotic Sortation System
WHAT IF you could cut miles of conveyance and several hundred thousand square feet of fulfillment building floor space? Could you locate that facility closer to your customers? The RFSS Robotic Sortation System can help you make that happen. This ground-breaking sorting system eliminates the labor of singulating and consolidating consumer orders, removing the need to convey multiple orders for singulation and then convey product further for final consolidation. Round, cylindrical, soft, hard, thin, thick or heavy – as long as your product can fit in our flexibly sized tray, we can sort it for you. WHAT IF we told you the RFSS robotic sorting system was so flexible that it can sort anywhere from 500 to 1500 products per hour, occupying only 300 to 850 square feet of floor space? A single RFSS module can be installed into existing conveyor and/or putwall environments and you’ll see your labor steps, touches and costs drop immediately. WHAT IF you had an automation system that could sort everything?
