Ferag brings ultra-reliable sorter technology to IntraLogisteX 2022


Ferag, a global leader in advanced conveying and sortation solutions, will be showcasing its advanced Swiss engineered overhead pouch and sorter systems at the UKs IntraLogisteX 2022 show – 29th & 30th March 2022, CBS Arena, Coventry (Stand: 536).

Developed for some of the most testing of handling applications in the international print industry, Ferag’s high-speed overhead conveyors are required to be ultra-reliable, offering unfailing performance on daily newspaper production runs in the millions. The same materials, technology and design expertise has been successfully applied by Ferag within the intralogistics sector, bringing reliable, high-performance conveying at speeds of up to 12,000 units per hour to retail, ecommerce, automotive and general merchandise businesses.

“Fulfillment is a time-critical operation demanding ultra-reliable, high-performance automation”, says Darcy de Thierry, Managing Director, Ferag UK Ltd. “Downtime or mechanical failure can cause huge disruption with delays to customer orders resulting in disappointment and refunds. These service failures can be extremely damaging for a brand and may lead to the loss of repeat sales, or poor customer reviews. That’s why I believe logistics professionals will be interested to learn how our systems can provide the reassurance they need.”

Principle products in Ferag’s extensive range of innovative sorters and conveyors include: Skyfall, an overhead pouch system that combines conveying, buffering, sorting and consolidating, suited to a wide variety of goods weighing up to 20kg. The solution makes efficient use of available overhead space; Denisort, a tilt-tray sorter that provides order picking, conveying and sorting in one seamless and scalable solution; Denisort Compact, a modular vertical sorter designed for items weighing up to 12Kg; Deniway, a plate chain conveyor with low-friction rollers for long conveying distances, offering smooth transfers with the minimum number of drive units; and Easychain, a largely maintenance-free continuous and seamless conveying system with an ultra-narrow curve radii, making it well suited to complex, 3D layouts.
