W&H Systems Introduces New High-Speed Reliable Sorting Unit (RSU) to Handle Sortation Within Warehouses & DCs

Carlstadt, NJ, August 03, 2012 --(PR.com)-- W&H Systems, Inc., a full-service integrator of conveyor and material handling systems that improve fulfillment operations and achieve maximum warehouse efficiency, introduces a High-Speed, Tilted-Tray Reliable Sorting Unit (RSUHS) that helps retailers, wholesalers and distributors increase throughput and productivity. The RSU Tray Sorter provides a durable, low-cost, and accurate method of sorting a wide range of products. The flexible nature of the RSU enables unique system configurations that match specific application needs, while the simple design allows for a low up front investment and minimal annual maintenance costs.

“W&H Systems’ RSU Tray Sorter is designed to quickly and gently deliver merchandise to shipping cartons or pack-out stations in the most accurate and reliable way,” said John Niemeyer, Marketing & Sales Coordinator at W&H Systems, Inc. “Some of our clients have tripled their throughput and reduced labor costs in excess of 50%.”

The RSU Sorter features tilted carrying trays traveling on an enclosed track conveyor. Items are inducted onto the trays either manually or automatically, then conveyed to their destination. To improve productivity, trays are presented to the induction area in a horizontal position and later tilted for sortation. At the pre-defined sort points, doors open on the carrying trays to gently discharge the product. Items gently slide from the trays to their proper chute or directly into their shipping carton.

The Standard RSU model has a maximum speed of 120 ft/min and is capable of handling up to 5,320 trays per hour per induction area, while the RSUHS – High Speed can process up to 8,640 trays per hour. Multiple induction areas can be added to increase system throughput for both RSU models. Custom trays are available to hold a variety of product sizes and shapes.

Clients use the W&H Systems RSU Sorter to sort small to medium-sized cartons, totes, polybags, envelopes, and individual items such as flat apparel, accessories, footwear, books, CDs, pharmaceuticals, direct mail, auto parts, linens and more.
