Sortation Systems

An Axiom sortation system is a specialist material handling solution allowing single streams of mixed products to be diverted to a required destination directly from a conveyor without manual intervention.

What is sortation in materials handling systems?

Axiom can supply the optimum sortation solution from either a ASS-075 Sliding Shoe Sorter; Swivel-Wheel Sorter (SWS) or Pop-up Roller Sorter (PUR).

Parcels and packages are identified by reading the despatch or product code and correlating this to data from the WMS (warehouse management system). Sortation systems can be used in any operation where a single mixed stream needs to be separated to unique controlled outputs.

All are designed and manufactured by Axiom in UK and can be supplied as a complete materials handling solution that will boost your productivity and increase efficiency.
