Converting bulk into singulated flow has always been one of the most challenging aspects of automated parcel sortation. Historically, there has been two options; either a manual (time-consuming) approach or an automated solution with an associated price tag.

Enter NPI’s semi-automated parcels singulation module (patent pending), capable of induction of up-to 10,000 PPH* and handling a wide array of product types from polybags to boxes.

The NPI induction module includes a semi-automatic induction table, independent power control panel, PLC and NPI’s touch screen operator control panel. Additional options include a dumper and hopper to discharge gaylords, pallets, carts. It can be used to feed a single induction lane or split the load between two induction lanes by smart-sensing available space on each lane and directing product flow appropriately.

The module can run in a variety of different modes that allow for optimum induction, based on product type. This can include combinations of fast automatic induction, slow automatic induction and a manual pull mode. Programmable options on the touch screen operator control panel allow employees to easily switch between modes based on product type to optimize flow.
