Inducting packages requires the placement of a scanner along a side of the conveyor where the LPN will be located - typically to read the LPN on one side of the package. Consistent placement and alignment go a long way toward successful automation, saving you cost on unnecessary scanning equipment. Consistent LPN placement will reduce the number of scanners or cameras necessary to read a label.
The ability to incorporate equipment from a variety of different manufacturers, and drive it in a concert that is timed perfectly to meet your daily business requirements, while connecting to your software order database, hardware inputs and outputs is a task that is uniquely suited to a Warehouse Control Software (WCS).
In fulfillment automation, the integrity of the box is critical to the success of the automation, particularly with regard to: dimensioning, labeling, conveyance and sortation. We look for ways to add value to both our existing customers as well as new ones, and our controls and software engineers regularly explore new technology to solve problems. Poor box integrity causes a variety of problems for the rest of the fulfillment automation process, so we have invested in research and technologies that can allow us to catch problems early.
StreamTech's Drop-In Conveyor Aligner™ (DCA) fills a gap in the market. Lots of skew beds and other alignment options have a larger footprint, cost more, cannot be easily retrofitted into existing conveyors, and cannot be adjusted for different angles once installed. We designed our own aligner to solve all of these problems, and give our customers a better choice.
StreamTech Engineering LLC, a leading creator and integrator of intelligent fulfillment automation systems, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued the company a patent for the FoldSerter™, a system for inserting multi-page plain paper pack slips into open cartons (US Patent No. 10,822,131 B2).
The Sprinter™ is capable of scanning, weighing, dimensioning, print and applying and verifying. It can also integrate with a multitude of additional features. Ten feet doesn't seem like a significant impact, but by combining the individual process that are manually done you are not only saving space but time with an all-in-one system.
Piggyback labels are multi-layer labels that provide flexibility in a wide variety of applications. The Piggyback label is printing on only the top layer of the label allowing it to be transferrable. Some of the most common instances that a Piggyback label could be utilized...
