  • What's new ?

      • Boost your sortation with the MABS, the multidirectional high capacity diverter module

      • To complement the already high performing and praised FRAT-NX diverter module, Itoh Denki developped a new diverter module that will bring a boost in throughput where it is the most needed in sortation lines. We called this new module the MABS, for Multi Angle Ball Sorter, and has it name hints it, the MABS relies on rotating balls to divert totes and products in mutliple direction and at different angles. The diverting angle can be easily set and changed to either 30°, 45°, 90°, both on the right and the left, with of course a straight exit upfront.

        Powered exclusively by 24V dc high torque MDRs, the MABS inherits the philosophy of great compacity and simplicity of use and comissioning, while delivering market leading throughputs and keeping the products safe with smooth transfers. MABS modules are available in 5 different sizes and can be combined together, making it possible to handle a large variety of sizes.

                      • ROYAL MAIL – MAIL SORTATION

                      • Royal Mail’s state-of-the-art international mail centre near Heathrow, London is one of the most technically advanced mail handling centres in the world. Costing £367million and occupying an area the size of six football pitches, the Heathrow Worldwide Distribution Centre sorts and distributes every letter or parcel that leaves and enters Britain.

                        The centre replaces eight foreign mail sorting offices that previously served Britain and is designed to handle up to 10 million mail items per day and operates 24hrs a day. This single distribution centre is designed around a highly automated operation that includes 12 kilometres of conveyor which incorporate Itoh Denki’s energy efficient Power Moller® motorised drive rollers.

                        Itoh Denki’s modular and compact drive solution not only reduces space requirements, they also reduce noise levels and energy consumption compared to traditional external drive solutions. The roller conveyor is made up of lots of drive zones that comprise of a single motorised roller and several slave rollers. In this way a drive zone is able to readily transfer the trays from one zone to the next. Because each zone is independently controlled the motors can be operated on a run-on-demand basis enabling substantial energy savings to be made compared with continuously running external drives with complex belt drives and pneumatic actuators or slipping clutches.

                        Calculations show that when comparing a similar section of conveyor driven by a continuously run external motor, Power Moller® drives can reduce energy consumption by up to 60%. The whole-life-costs of the installation are also affected by belt drives and clutches that often require replacement as little as two years after installation. With a typical life expectancy of around 20,000 hrs Itoh Denki motorised rollers are being selected by system integrators and end users as the preferred solution to unit conveying applications.

                      • VOW DISTRIBUTION CENTER

                      • VOW Europe Ltd is one of the UK and Ireland’s leading wholesalers of business and office supplies. Following the centralisation of their Sales and Service Centre, VOW opened a high-tech distribution centre in Normanton, England.
                        Leading 4th party integrator Logistex was selected by VOW to supply the integrated storage and materials handling systems. These included an extensive range of conveyor equipment manufactured by leading OEM Conveyor Units.
                        The system is built around a sophisticated one-kilometer carton conveyor. Where product separation is critical the conveyors are powered by low-energy 24v motorised rollers from Itoh Denki. Totes and cartons are routed around a zoned system for picking, before being checked and scanned and finally routed through a sorter at up to 2,850 items per hour.

                        From an early stage Itoh Denki’s Technical Sales Engineers worked closely with Conveyor Units and Logistex to provide the best conveyor solutions and specifications to meet the system challenges. The installation has been designed to handle the diverse range of order size, volume and changes in demand. Totes can carry up to 25kg and cartons as slim as 50mm can be conveyed directly to dispatch to keep space and shipping costs to a minimum.

                        The HB510 incorporates control logic and zone-to-zone communications that facilitate valuable product buffering and separation throughout the conveyor system. The HB510 is also configurable to allow adjustment of roller speed, transfer configuration, and zone release modes. This made it ideally suited to the various control requirements of the project and was used extensively throughout.
                        The combination of HB510 and Power Moller® 24v motorised drives provided the ideal solution to the high speed sortation conveyor installed in the despatch area.
