As e-commerce continues to grow, companies need to fulfill orders more quickly without compromising accuracy. Successful and competitive e-commerce distribution and fulfillment requires quick throughput, low errors, and maximum control of product. Hytrol provides a variety of solutions that help e-commerce fulfillment, including:
- Accumulation conveyors to provide gentle product control while creating steady product flow
- Sortation conveyors with high throughputs and sort rates
- A Warehouse Control System to help manage the real-time decisions of your warehouse
Accumulation conveyors remove back-pressure from products that must accumulate on the line, and can be adapted to either utilize minimum or zero pressure. These systems create a steady supply of product at one time or can hold products when needed. Hytrol conveyors utilize EZLogic® technology to effectively adjust drive pressure to create accumulation. With accumulation conveyors, products can be held or to prevent product damage, to save energy, and to regulate imbalances between operations.
Once the products are packed they need to be sorted for shipment. Sortation conveyors move items from one conveyor to another and increase shipping accuracy. Hytrol’s line of sliding shoe sorters is designed for high-speed applications where product diverting needs to be positive and gentle; we also provide right angle transfers and sweep sorters for very small products that help attain higher throughput for your system.
