Intuitive Operation with BÖWE Sort


The design of the BÖWE SYSTEC Arm Sorter is as simple as it is efficient. Items are transported by a conveyor belt to the sorting line, where a series of swinging arms positioned to one side of the belt swing out to direct the item into the right output hopper. The arms are pneumatically driven, which makes the sorting process particularly gentle. The system uses barcodes applied to the items being sorted to automatically determine which arm needs to be swing out in order to direct each item to the right chute or to forward it to a conveyor belt.

Flexible and modular

Its modular design means that this flexible system can be readily adapted to individual customer requirements and to the available space. It also offers a number of additional capabilities such as omnidirectional OCR and barcode reading in order to guarantee the high-speed reading of typed and handwritten addresses. The same flexibility is a feature of its BÖWE Sort control software, which offers individually tailored solutions that independently model each process whilst at the same time being capable of being integrated into an existing system. Cloud-based Warehouse Management Systems create the necessary transparency in the logistics chain, monitor every item at all times and unlock the potential for improvement.
