The Central Belt System is characterized by its robust, modular structure and can be scaled flexibly to suit the required performance, budget and the available space. This means that it can also be used as a retrofit solution.
The Central Belt System contains:
- Central belt conveyor
- Autopickers with autopicker channels and ejectors
- Transfer stations and accessories
- ACS control software
- LGI (Light Guided Indicator) function indicator (optional)
- Vision Central Belt makes a 100 % check possible (optional)
Different types of autopickers for different articles can be integrated into the Central Belt System. Customized transfer stations achieve high performance and optimize throughput. Combined with the uniform ACS control logic, the Central Belt System is a reliable, high-performance solution provided by a single supplier. The ACS has interfaces to the higher-level software systems and to the warehouse control system (PLC). It is operated using touch screens. The ACS calculates a virtual order window on the central belt conveyor for each order, into which the articles are ejected.
In addition to the Vision Central Belt add-on for image recognition and processing, a 100 % check can also be incorporated in the automated picking area. Vision Central Belt checks each individual article in the area around the transfer station and records any distinct security features such as serial number, lot information, date mark, etc. In doing so it not only fulfils the applicable legal requirements, it also boosts efficiency and quality. Vision Central Belt is easy to integrate in existing systems and can also be used as a retrofit solution. The Central Belt System is therefore perfectly in sync with KNAPP’s zero-defect philosophy.
