Go to the Xstream and Sort Up To 10,000 Parcels Per Hour

NPI’s Xstream Compact Sliding Shoe Sorter is recognized for being a highly efficient and compact automated sorting solution that uses as little as 2,500 square feet of floor space. The Single Lane Bi-Directional configuration gives the Xstream the ability to sort parcels in two directions, allowing for more outputs and destinations with a small footprint. The Xstream Compact can reach throughputs up to 10,000 parcels per hour. It provides a platform capable of sorting a wide range of mail or package types from flats mail to poly bags and boxes. Utilizing NPI’s patented Parcel Singulator, parcels are inducted and singulated quickly and efficiently with a unique process requiring only one or two operators. Parcels are then dimensioned, weighed, and scanned in at a high rate of speed through the DWS tunnel. They’re then conveyed on to the shoe sorter conveyor consisting of shoes and slats. Once the parcel reaches it’s designated output, it is diverted by NPI’s sliding shoes into its output that was pre-determined using NPI’s industry leading software.
