Bin Induction

Return Bin Induction offers libraries an economical and unique option to automatically process patron returns from external drop boxes or remote book drops.  Specialized bins capable of collecting hundreds of items are emptied onto in-feed conveyors for immediate check-in, separation, singulation and sorting.  The optional module dramatically reduces the labor required and time needed to circulate thousands of items per day.


Ask staff which they would rather do... ”Manually induct one item at a time, or hundreds with the push of a button?”
