Precision-Controlled Sorting: Ensuring Every Item Finds Its Rightful Place

The Importance of Precision in Sorting

A seamless sorting experience hinges on precision. It's not just about moving items from point A to point B; it's about ensuring each item lands exactly where it's intended to be. While this may seem like a given, the operational advantages of such meticulous control can't be overstated.

Real-World Benefits of Precision

The advantages of precise sorting are more than technical; they're practically indispensable. For instance, accurate sorting optimizes the use of space in receptacles, eliminating the need for manual readjustment. This also allows for the formation of stable, vertical stacks in specialized carts, enhancing both space usage and staff safety.

Flexibility with Module Destinations

One of the standout features of precise control is the ability to add up to four destinations for a single sorting module. This is especially beneficial for categorizing smaller items like DVDs and CDs, allowing for more efficient space utilization and streamlined operations.

Numerous Benefits to Automating the Library Return Process

“The partnership with Lyngsoe Systems was very service-oriented. We were able to rely on the team’s professional and competent advice during both the planning and implementation of Lyngsoe’s products.”

Automatic Book Return in Dortmund

The library’s customers had no problems at all with the new return machines, so there was very little need for support from the start.

Ergonomics on a Big Scale

“Odense Libraries have achieved a better physical working environment due to fewer or almost no heavy lifting. This implies employee satisfaction and the expectation of fewer days of sick leave.”

Average Turnaround Time Down From Days to Hours

With circulation approaching one million items a year, Worcester Public Library needed to switch from manual to automated material handling.

Automation – A Core Factor in Innovative Library Success

Darien Library is making its mark through excellent and wide-ranging customer service, which they attribute partly to the automation systems that have raised the library’s operational pace and efficiency, making its core services fast and easy to use.

The Lyngsoe Ergo Box™ Creates a Better Working Environment

"Together with Lyngsoe Systems we have developed the Ergo Box that enables library staff to remove the media from the sorting system while standing upright as much as possible. As the box floor moves up and down automatically, materials can always be handled at a back-friendly height, which reduces the risk of back pain."
