At MODEX 2014, the international trade fair for manufacturing technology and the supply chain industry (March 17 to 20 in Atlanta), the BEUMER Group will be exhibiting innovative solutions from the sorting, distribution, palletizing and packaging business segments. One highlight is the "virtual sortation tour", a personalized virtual tour of different systems provided by the intralogistics specialists. BEUMER will also be presenting the BS 25 tilt tray sorter. This is particularly suitable for use in dispatch and logistics centers.
The BEUMER Group will be offering a special kind of system tour at Exhibition Booth 4523. On the "virtual sortation tour", visitors to the fair will be able to experience a virtual tour through several sorting and distribution systems. They will be given a controller, similar to the kind used for video games, and will be able to use it to navigate independently through the systems. Various application scenarios such as online trading, branch replenishment, dispatch and the wholesale trade are simulated. This will enable visitors to obtain an accurate picture of the advantages and possible applications of BEUMER products.
BEUMER will also be presenting its BS 25 tilt tray sorter. The high-performance tilt tray sorter is extremely flexible and is distinguished by its high throughput. It is therefore also suitable for demanding tasks in dispatch and logistics centers. Here, the requirement for efficient and variable sortation systems is high – particularly as a result of the expanding multichannel business. The sorter with its modular design can be adapted and extended to suit individual requirements. It can also handle packages of different sizes – from small Jiffy bags to boxes with sides a meter in length. BEUMER’s tilt tray technology is a cost-effective and sustainable solution which has already proved its worth in numerous applications.
Models of other BEUMER sortation systems will also be on display at MODEX. Among other things, the company will be presenting the BS-7 cross belt sorter and the LS2000 and LS4000 tilt tray sorters from Crisplant, a member of the BEUMER Group. With its decades of experience, BEUMER is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of sortation and distribution systems. These have not only been used successfully in dispatch and logistics centers, but, by way of example, also in airports.
Experts from the BEUMER Group will also be involved in several information events organized by the Material Handling Institute (MHI) which will be taking place as part of MODEX. In the "MHI Classroom Sessions", specialists will be discussing subjects and challenges in the supply chain industry, for example automation, multichannel capability and dealing with seasonal variations.
