BLS 4 READER-SORTER-SYSTEM

Conception

To combine maximum item throughput, total modularity and safe item transport with a minimum space requirement, was the initial target.
With the WALTHER BLS 4 Reader-Sorter-System the squaring of this circle has succeeded for the first time. The compact table-top device can be equipped with an OCR-reader as well as with a MICR-reader, with the result that OCR-A/B (including OCR full-alpha), E13B (MICR or OCR) and/or CMC-7 encoded items can be read and sorted combined in one system.

At a transport speed of 1 m/sec, the BLS 4 reads up to 15.000 items DIN A6/h, (250 6" items/ min.). Equipment options are programmable ink-jet line endorsers and canceling stamps.

 

 

 

Motorized sorter modules and sorter pockets do guarantee that in spite of the high throughput items are securely transported and deposited into the pockets. Extending the number of sorter pockets to 60 (= 10 modules) will not reduce the throughput of approx. 15.000 items per hour.
