Title: A SORTING AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM
Abstract:
Disclosed is a sorting and distribution system for sorting a number of different types of articles to a number of different clients depending on types and amounts of articles ordered by the different clients. The system comprises a plurality of article tracks (21), each articles track being arranged to receive and transport a type of article, and a plurality of order tracks (25) arranged substantially transverse to the plurality of article tracks (21), each order track being arranged as a rotating endless loop. The plurality of article tracks (21) are arranged in relation to the plurality of order tracks (25) such that articles situated on any of the article tracks (21) can be moved to the order tracks (25). Each order track (25) is divided into m order track parts (25C) by order track partitions (25M). The system further comprises a control unit (40) controlling movement of the plurality of order tracks (25) and movement of articles arranged on the plurality of article tracks (21) to the plurality of order tracks (25) based on client order information received by the control unit such that a first article positioned on a first article track (21a) is moved to a first order track part (25Ca) of a first order track (25a) when a first client to which the first order track part is associated has ordered a first article type according to the client order information, and when the first order track part (25Ca) is in a correct position for receiving the first article.
