LS-4000 sorters are saving more than 26 tons of CO2 per year “... a direct energy saving of over 76% per year, compared to sorters using conventional motor technology.“ The new centre, outside the town of Wei­ en, Germany, is part of the Wittd Gruppe’s Vision 2020 through which it plans to position itself as the most profitable Europe-wide group of retailers in the 50plus market whilst achieving a 50% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by 2020. Efficiency is central to the design of the new centre: Major cuts in energy consumption will be provided by an advanced automated wood-chip...

Crisplant’s recommended configuration gives Witt-Gruppe the flexibility to handle items of any size and weight, at any time. The original specification was for the two order processing sorters, oper­ ating in batch-mode in the warehouse, to ­ per­ te on a 700mm cart pitch at o a a speed of 2.2 metres per second. Crisplant, however, suggested an alternative con­ guration and speed: fi Their suggestion was to use a longer pitch of 1200mm and a slower speed of 1.9 metres per second, but to equip each cart with cross belts of two different sizes. Despite running at a slower speed, Crisplant’s...

Items are picked from stock in batches and accumulate in totes before being conveyed to the sorting system consisting of two LS-4000CB cross-belt packing sorters with five inductions each. At each induction, one person, at a specially-designed ergonomic workstation, manually removes items from the totes and places them into the dynamic induction. To match the picking process, the sorters receive, process and release the items in batches. Crisplant’s proposal, therefore, included two new LS-4000CB cross-belt sorters, for order processing and a new LS-4000E tilt-tray sorter for shipping,...
