Accu-Sort® Demonstrates Automation Solutions for Distribution Centers at 2011 RILA Logistics Conference


Accu-Sort's automation solutions, including camera bar code scanners, print and apply, and sortation systems help retailers improve speed and accuracy in tough retail environments

PHILADELPHIA, PA - Accu-Sort® Systems, Inc., a leader in automation solutions and automatic identification systems, will be exhibiting at the 2011 RILA Logistics Conference, Booth 317, February 21-24, 2011 in Orlando, FL. The company will be demonstrating automation solutions for distribution centers that are proven at over half of the top 10 largest retailers in the nation.

As retailers realize gains in their supply-chain, distribution center efficiency is becoming more important than ever. Accu-Sort offers solutions for Receiving, Order Fulfillment, Shipping and auto-identification.

"We're excited to exhibit at the RILA Logistics Conference and discuss how Accu-Sort is developing solutions for the many challenges retailers face," said Joe Janick, VP Sales.

Accu-Sort solutions to be featured at RILA include:

o Receiving Throughput. Accu-Sort's FAST Label® automated label print-and-apply systems enable the implementation of cross-docking and automated receiving and outbound strategies that can increase throughput by 66%.

o Picking Accuracy. Picking errors create immediate and hard-to-track losses. Accu-Sort's Small Item Sorter (SIS) can automate the pick process. Laser bar code scanners within this sortation system compare the shipping label and product bar code to verify that items are picked correctly for each order.

o Sorting Accuracy. The AccuVision® AV6010 camera bar code scanner with optional Side-by-Side Package Detection can detect non-singulated products, preventing inventory problems caused by "phantom" packages as well as costly conveyor jams

o Diagnostic Tools. In combination with the VisionCapture(TM) System 2.0, the AccuVision® AV6010 camera bar code scanner can capture images of every no-read label for root cause analysis. This approach can help greatly reduce the labor of manually handling no-read cartons. Accu-Sort's FAST Monitor(TM) makes it easy to monitor laser and camera bar code scanner performance throughout a single site or multiple sites, requiring only three clicks from alarm to root cause.
