Compact conveyor system creates a single-file product stream to reduce system jams and mis-sorts

(ST. LOUIS) FKI Logistex®, offers the Mini-Unscrambler conveyor, which orients cases into a single-file line at up to 100 cartons per minute for induction into high-speed material handling systems. By edge-aligning cartons and removing side-by-side products, the FKI Logistex Mini-Unscrambler reduces system jams and mis-sorts, and decreases carton recirculation.

As today's manufacturing and retail distribution centers trend toward smaller SKUs and higher speeds, single-file conveying is increasingly important. The FKI Logistex Mini-Unscrambler is cost-effective and ideal for pre-sorter induction areas, following manual or automated depalletizing cells, and in manual repack areas. It is also one of the most compact unscramblers available, with a standard length of 15 feet (4.6 meters).

Unlike most competing unscramblers that line up cartons in the center of the conveyor where they may still have a tendency to skew, the FKI Logistex Mini-Unscrambler edge-aligns cartons to deliver them to the sorter in a single-line orientation. The Mini-Unscrambler also reduces gaps, minimizes scuffing, and can accept a wide range of products.

"FKI Logistex leads the industry with more than 15 years of high-speed, inline case unscrambling experience," said Steve Ackerman, president, FKI Logistex North America. "As a result, our products continue to be trusted by customers with some of the largest automated material handling systems in the world."
