The Fives Singulators are equipments included in a sortation system that transform a bulk flow of items overlapping or piled, into a manageable single-file output stream, properly spaced and aligned, simplifying the upstream feed system before the sorter.
Moreover, Fives' singulators feature a built-in buffering capability to accumulate the peaks of incoming goods and to release them whenever the upstream operators are slowing their working rhythm, so that the customer can avoid installing additional accumulation conveyors and is able to reach the highest operational throughput.
Fives' high-capacity singulators are achieved by an active side-by-side eliminator which improves singulation accuracy even for small (150mm-wide) products, with no manual intervention and totally in automation. The recirculation line allows buffering of spike peak flows without disruption of upstream processes, meanwhile simple controls and fewer motors lead to an extremely reliable system.
Fives offers two types of singulators:
- ACCORD, for packet items, has high-capacity singulation of up to 6 000 items / hour and with an extremely high accuracy of singulation;
- Linear Parcel Singulator (LPS), for parcel items, has high-capacity singulation in the range of 8 250 to 18 000 items / hour depending on package size.
