Automatic Parcel Singulator short-listed for Postal Technology International Awards 2013

The Automatic Parcel Singulator has been shortlisted by the Postal Technology International Awards 2013 as Parcel Handling Technology of the Year. The Automatic Parcel Singulator, developed jointly by BEUMER Group and Mechanica, enables parcel and bulk mail operators to respond to increases in parcel volumes due to online shopping, with faster sort speeds and lower cost per item.

Designed specifically for integration into loop sortation systems, the Singulator transforms a bulk feed of items into a single, centred stream prior to automatic induction into a loop sorter. Cyclical operation enables the Automatic Parcel Singulator to adjust the speed of the parcel flow in response to changing levels of demand, whilst the combination of sleep mode and variable speed drives reduces energy consumption and maintenance.

“The continued development of new sorting technologies is vital for parcel and postal operators to continue to sharpen their competitive edge by offering customers increased operational and environmental efficiency at optimised cost,” explains Preben Hütscher, Crisplant. “Extensive testing in a live postal environment has demonstrated that the Singulator maximizes throughput in addition to improving the ergonomics of the working environment”.

The Postal Technology International Awards recognise and reward innovation and operational excellence throughout the postal industry. In 2009, Crisplant was named Supplier of the Year for its environmentally-friendly high-speed LS-4000 Sorter.
