The Lyngsoe AMHS™ (Automated Material Handling System) is a fully modular system, suitable for all kinds and sizes of libraries, with a minimum of one sorting destination up to a maximum of 255 sorting positions.
The AMHS is of modular construction, each
module being responsible for a specific function in the AMHS. Because of this, the AMHS can be customized to fit the needs of any library. The modularity makes installing the system in a library easy, even in existing facilities. The modular structure also enables the devices to be extended and reconfigured later, for example by adding sorting positions or inlets.
The sorting bin can carry about 200 items at once
(average item size of 16x21x2.5 cm). The capacity varies depending on the size of the material. If the AMHS system is 3-way sorting and the return frequency is about 600 items per hour, then the changing frequency for the bins is roughly one hour.
Sorting bins can be changed without stopping the machine. When there is no sorting bin in a sorting position, the material that is supposed to go to the bin will be diverted to the overflow bin. Sorting bins can be used with all kinds of material.
The new generation Smart Trolley is designed to
improve library staff ergonomics, workflow and the
material handling process. The Smart Trolley is used
in conjunction with the Libretto material handling system or as a stand alone product.
Smart Trolley is ergonomic to handle and maneuver
with an easy to use height adjustable handlebar and
large lockable rubber castors.
Index tote is a small lift for a sorting module. It is
used to fill transportation crates/totes used by a library. Normally an Index tote can stack three crates on top of each other next to the sorting module from where they are easy to move aside to wait for transportation.
This system improves the logistics between libraries as the library staff does not need to touch the material at all. Index tote with its crates is fit for all kind of material.
Automating returns with a book sorter brings a host of benefits to your library. With the latest generation in Automated Material Handling Systems for libraries, Sort Mate™ 2000, you will significantly improve circulation, while reducing cost and the need for physical handling of materials. Lyngsoe Systems’ Sort Mate™ sorter series is modular, allowing the same fast, accurate, and reliable quality to lift the performance in both a central sorting facility and in a branch library.
