Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/27/2015 -- Hytrol Conveyor was chosen to move footwear and apparel for Eastbay in Wausau, WI with the help of Integration Partner, HCM Systems, Inc. based in Chicago, IL. When Eastbay decided to double the size of the current facility to over 500,000 sq. ft. they requested direction and input from three qualified system integrators. The current material handling system would require complete redesign to handle to projected case rates of 60,000 orders per day. It was determined that a series of tote handling conveyors and package handling conveyors would be needed to fill the orders at the current and projected rates.
The Hytrol ProSort 100 Shoe Sorter operates at 230 cases per minute and can handle 60,000 packages a day. Operators pick orders to totes and place the completed pick on one of two 300' long live roller take away conveyors running the width of the building. The two take away lines incline and merge into a Hytrol high speed 2:1 roller merge. HCM completed this task using Hytrol's high speed pneumatic pusher design. The solution allows Eastbay to greatly reduce the time combining multiple items scheduled for a customer order.
