Original Press Release:

FKI Logistex Crisplant's S-3000DT Double-Tray Sorter

Ideal Sortation Solution For High-Volume, Lightweight Items Where Space Is Limited

(Frederick, Maryland: September 25, 2002) FKI Logistex (LSE: FKI.L) Crisplant presents the S-3000DT, the next generation in double-tray sorters that quickly sorts a high volume of product in a limited sortation area. The S-3000DT, an update of the popular S-2000 double-tray sorting system, is ideal for handling clothing, mail, pharmaceuticals, toys, compact discs, books, and similarly lightweight items.

Equipped with two tilting trays on each cart instead of one, the S-3000DT is capable of sorting more than 40,000 items an hour. Because of its 'double handling' capacity, the S-3000DT has an economical footprint allowing it to fit into facilities with limited floor space. Once items are inducted to the sorter, they can be discharged from either side of the cart. This allows heavier items to be discharged to one side and lighter items to the other, ensuring that more fragile items remain unharmed during the sortation process.

Using its advanced induction unit, the S-3000DT measures, barcode-scans and weighs each item. After being fed onto the sorter trays, the items are then delivered to their destination chutes, where the trays are discharged in a controlled movement by the company's user interface, Crisplant System Controller (CSC). With the S-3000DT, both the left and right trays can be activated at the same time, or either tray can be discharged individually.
