Meet Sure Sort

Precision-Driven Tools for Optimal Operations

Sure Sort is an automated put wall system designed for peak efficiency using advanced iBOT® sorting robots. It swiftly sorts a wide variety of SKUs in a single pass. iBOTs are self-charging and move throughout the system, ensuring that every item finds its place quickly. With its intuitive LED notifications and pack-to-light system, operators can easily keep track of the sorting process.

iBOT

The iBOT system can carry up to five pounds and is self-charging using ultra-capacitors, recharging while braking. It wirelessly communicates with traffic controllers to access all the sort destinations.

Induction Module

The Induction Module sets a maximum 6″ height for sorted items and monitors a 3″ gap between items. It uses image entry sensors to measure item length and can share conveyor state with upstream systems. It rejects items that don’t meet minimum gap requirements or exceed maximum length.

RFID Scan Tunnel

With six-sided scanning, the RFID Scan Tunnel reads up to eight barcodes per item and offers customizability for barcode scanning. It also reads RFID in items like tags, bags, and boxes. The Hand Scanner allows manual rescanning of items that aren’t easily read by the scan tunnel.

Pick-to-Light (PTL)

PTL systems use LED lights, including PTL strips and ring lights, with a wide range of colors. These lights indicate machine and bin status and are used by the warehouse control system (WCS) to instruct operators.

Sort Bin Configuration Expansion Modules

There can be a maximum of 11 expansion modules, each containing 6-8 columns. These modules are configurable to various bin types and allow for custom sort configurations based on defined parameters.
