Sorter solution
for the automatic sorting of glasses

LCS creates an automatic sorting line for eyewear for Aerial Vision. An efficient solution that ensures high performance and maximum traceability of all items.

The company and the needs

Aerial Vision International is a specialized company in the wholesale and import-export of optical items. In the distribution center located near Rome, Aerial Vision manages the sorting of glasses packed in different packages and destined for the warehouse, for sale through e-commerce or for shipment to customers. Aerial Vision’s objective was to implement an automatic sortingsolution to support the activities of both the loading of goods into the system in the incoming flow and of checking the outgoing material.

LCS was therefore entrusted with the task of developing a solution that would make sorting operations more efficient guaranteeing the traceability of the items items with the consequent elimination of any errors caused by manual management.[/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src=”” alt=”LCS Aerial Vision” title_text=”LCS_Aerial_Vision” _builder_version=”4.14.1″ _module_preset=”default” hover_enabled=”0″ global_colors_info=”{}” sticky_enabled=”0″][/et_pb_image][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.14.1″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”]

The project

The project developed and implemented by LCS hada sorter for sorting the glasses packed in different packages, all equipped with a label with an identifying barcode. The operator has the task to select, on the appropriate panel, the function that the sorter will have to perform between managing goods in the warehouse, sorting goods for shipment, inventory. The loading of the products is then carried out manually by the operators near the reference silk-screened elements present on the conveyor belt of the sorter and the sorting takes place automatically on 51 chutes.

The materials positioned on the conveyor belt are identified individually by the LCS system with the aid of a portal of 1D and 2D barcode readers, for the correct sorting towards a specific chute, corresponding in turn to a specific destination: shelf cell, point of sale, courier etc. The sorting of the products towards the 51 outlets takes place by means of pneumatic pushers which have the task of diverting towards gravity chutes. At the bottom of the line there is an exit in which the materials that have had identification problems are conveyed.

All the operations described take place under the guidance of thel LCS LogiCon control and supervision software, in direct connection with the Aerial Vision ERP system. The customer’s company management system communicates the product data in the warehouse to LogiCon, then the LCS software determines the sorting of the items in the different bays according to the parameters set by the operator.
