The new OptiSorter is an integrated push tray solution combined with BÖWE Sort sorter control software. It is a versatile, customizable, high-speed system capable of sorting the widest range of products and sizes on the market today, including brochures, books, packets, mail bags, mail trays, and parcels. It can handle items up to 31.5 kg at speeds of up to 18,000 trays per hour with noise levels. The OptiSorter’s push tray technology ensures gentle processing of all items.

Integrated BÖWE Sort sorter control software makes the OptiSorter easy and intuitive to operate. As well as controlling the sorter, it generates dynamic data reporting via a single interface for sort scheme strategies, sorter performance and diagnostic information.

The OptiSorter’s modular design and numerous options allows the system to be customized and expanded to meet operational and space constraints in line with changing business needs. The BÖWE SYSTEC OptiSorter can incorporate inline features as required: BCR and OCR reading, weighing, volumizing and labeling to increase operational capacity and improve operational efficiencies. BÖWE Sort OCR offers industry-leading reading technology which incorporates omni-directional OCR and barcode reading capability.
