The Duravant family of operating companies serve the food processing, packaging and material handling segments.
When it comes to supply chain management, it is of paramount importance to reduce or eliminate bottlenecks and costly errors throughout your operations. Sorting and distributing packages are some of the most important steps in fulfillment, but they are frequently subject to inefficiencies that can slow down everyday processes.
Automated conveyor and sortation systems provide a solution to these inefficiencies, yet can all too often be difficult and costly to implement and operate. The FMH LITESORT solves these problems, providing a modular, easy-to-set-up sorting solution with an integrated scanning tunnel and customizable, foldable divert wings for faster loading and unloading, reduced labor, and more. Because you can add or remove channels at any time, these sorting conveyors are best suited for applications with high throughput where product is distributed to multiple locations. When you choose to work with FMH, our experts collaborate with you to design customized automated sorting systems that benefit your entire supply chain.
What Can LITESORT Do for Your Business?
The benefits of an automated sorting system built on LITESORT include:
Modular customization: LITESORT is a modular solution built on casters for fast and easy setup and relocation, providing configuration flexibility with the full benefits of integrated automation and scanning. Divert wings can be quickly folded and unfolded for fast and easy storage and maneuvering, so you get the most value out of every square foot in the facility.
Efficiency across the board: These automated conveyors increase efficiency in nearly every area of the loading and unloading process: faster sorting, less resource-intense labor, easy setup, no training requirement, simple and intuitive controls, and convenient storage.
Improved ergonomics: The flexibility to configure LITESORT in the way best-suited to the facility and application at hand — with different configurations depending on the current situation — means less walking for associates, improved handling ergonomics, and newly uncovered efficiencies not only in the process, but in your operations overall.
Reliability and consistency to meet demand: With online commerce used more now than ever, fulfillment efficiency must be maximized just to keep up with demand. There is no faster or easier way to implement an automation solution than with LITESORT.
