Boyce Bonham, director of integrated systems and controls at Hytrol, noted that 24-volt conveyors can accurately process orders through distribution centers in less space than traditional high voltage systems. And, if designed properly, these conveyors can be very efficient in space utilization, while conveying—and even sorting—up to 50 cartons per minute.
“By utilizing space, entire systems can be created with 24-volt conveyors, including transportation, accumulation, induction and sortation,” Bonham explains. “These conveyors can also help distributors cost justify automating their operation, which can double the speed in which orders are completed and shipped.”
Hytrol was recently featured in Supply Chain 24/7. According to Chris Lewis, Contributing Editor, facilities can increase induction accuracy, even as the sizes and shapes of packages continue to diversify. As facilities embrace the future of e-commerce purchasing, as well as the continuous evolution of supply chain and fulfillment methodology, most companies today are purchasing, assessing or restoring the following types of conveyors and sorters: 24-volt powered conveyors, crossbelt sorters, narrow belt sorters and pouch sorters.
