Introducing Smart Shoe Technology
The modern marketplace is moving at a faster pace than ever, with technology driving manufacturing, shipping, and selling forward – and those who don’t adjust fall behind. As a business owner or operational manager, you may feel this pressure, but how do you respond when industry standards are holding you back?
Too often people become comfortable with the status quo. At Aegis, we want to help you become superior to the status quo. Through intentional design, we strive to turn proven practices into cutting-edge technology.
Our new conveyor technology does just that – increasing efficiency, reducing downtime, and improving the performance of your operations. Continue reading to learn more about our Smart Shoe Technology and sortation solutions.
What is Smart Shoe Technology?
Aegis Sortation’s Smart Shoe technology is a real-time missing shoe detection. When shoes become dislodged from the conveyor slat timely detection of such an occurrence can be challenging, resulting in the mishandling of packages and/or system down time. These smart shoes are easier to customize, they sort more volume, and they are significantly quieter.
How does it work?
Aegis Sortation’s Smart Shoe technology embeds a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag in each shoe – allowing for selective shoe identification and tracking. This is vital to optimizing the production of your conveyor system. Additionally, Smart Shoe benefits include reduced maintenance time and elevated sorter diagnostics. The Smart Shoe can alert the employees of when a shoe is no longer working so it can be fixed faster and prevent jamming or loss of volume because of the broken shoe.
Why is it the best?
