Intelligrated demonstrates Dynamic Discharge Compensation at MODEX 2016

Technology maximizes divert accuracy in cross-belt sortation systems to increase operational efficiency

(ATLANTA: April 07, 2016)—Intelligrated® (, a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, showcases its Dynamic Discharge Compensation (DDC) technology to maximize cross-belt sortation accuracy at MODEX 2016. The demonstration in booth #2747 allows attendees to see the flexibility and precision of DDC in action.

The enhanced sensing technology of DDC detects the exact size and position of items on a carrier belt to dynamically adjust sorter discharge behavior for the highest levels of precision. This increased discharge precision enables greater chute density for expanded operational capacity without the need for additional space, and also minimizes the risk of jams, missed chutes or other sortation errors. Since the intelligent system does not adjust item location prior to discharge, it can reduce component wear and extend equipment life. DDC technology is suitable for an upgrade to select existing cross-belt systems or as a core component of a new cross-belt sortation solution.

"In today's booming e-commerce market, fulfillment centers must handle greater quantities of diverse order profiles faster than ever," says Jerry Koch, director, corporate marketing and product management. "Accurate sortation is absolutely critical for the success of these enterprises and Dynamic Discharge Compensation offers a solution flexible enough to handle nearly any product or packaging type with unprecedented levels of precision."

DDC is a 2016 MHI Innovation award winner for the best innovation of an existing product category. MODEX exhibitors submitted 98 innovations for consideration, 12 of which were recognized as finalists across three categories. George Prest, CEO, MHI announced the winning innovations during the industry night event in the Thomas Murphy Ballroom at the Georgia World Congress Center on April 6.
