Tote Induction

Tote Induction is another innovative as well as automatic process for libraries to empty full transportation totes onto our material handling systems.  Once a tote is positioned on the tilting pan and secured in place, a simple press of a button initiates the module.  The total induction cycle takes roughly 5 minutes to gradually tip out 25 – 30 items for immediate check-in by multiple RFID antenna pads located in the conveyor.


A mobile, battery powered lift truck allows staff to not only transport stacked totes back to the workroom, but also eliminates the need to repeatedly bend over to place a tote onto the pan for induction.
