Ultraflexible SkySorter conveyor technology for fashion logistics
Skyfall overhead conveyors from Swiss systems supplier Ferag AG are gaining a foothold in more and more application areas. The latest project comprises a complete SkySorter line for the transport, sorting, intermediate buffering and order-picking of garments, shoes and jewellery.
US group SDI Systems is primarily a specialist in Multi Channel solutions for the distribution industry and is integrating the Ferag innovation into an existing distribution centre owned by speciality retail chain Stage Stores, based in Houston, Texas.
Equipped with 5000 Skyfall hangers, the installation is operational since autumn of 2016. The installation is specifically aimed at improving the efficiency and speed of picking for the fast growing e-commerce Channel that Stage Stores operates.
