Sortation chutes can be costly. As such, it’s important to ensure you’ve carefully assessed the requirements of your chutes before making investments.

“CEP companies really need to make sure that the requirements they are putting on the chute are correct and that they are not overdoing it,” says Volker Sadowski, System Director at BEUMER Group.
“Sometimes we see customers wanting chutes that are gentle in handling items, but then end up with a system that is too expensive. Another solution may not be so gentle, but it might be gentle enough for your requirements,” Sadowski says.
The main takeaway here is that finding the right chute solution for your sortation system means firstly giving careful consideration to your individual requirements and needs.
