Since its first installation in 2019, the Equinox LR-sorter has proved its usefulness for parcel and e-commerce companies. Customers include Nova Poshta, Ingram Micro and Grupo Mox. But much has changed since then: e-commerce and parcel shipping numbers have increased and the demand for throughput has intensified.
The LR-sorter from Equinox has been reimagined to handle the growth in e-commerce. The most obvious improvement is the increased throughput: 10,000 parcels per hour. This enables faster operations and improves overall efficiency. This capacity is not just for neatly packed parcels; it includes a range of items including bumpy, oddly shaped parcels, padded envelopes and polybags. This makes it the most versatile sorter on the market for small to medium parcels.
The LR-sorter is designed to reduce strain on operations and offers several operational and ergonomic benefits: it is fast, energy efficient, quiet (<70dB) and requires little maintenance. With the need for flexibility and scalability, Equinox offers various expansions for this sorter.
Equinox’s key target was to reduce the time needed to deliver and install the machine. Installation can be undertaken in one day on-site, and installed projects have been executed less than three months after signing the contract. The new and improved version will reduce the delivery time even further.
On-site installation has become a lightning-fast plug-and-play process. All modules can be easily connected due to their modular connection boxes. This is a money saver for customers who are expanding their current installations and already working on-site, and can minimize the downtime of the current installation.
