In the logistics industry, consumers are demanding quicker and more accurate delivery capabilities, such as the same-day shipment of e-commerce, in addition to multi-item and small lot delivery services. Whether deployed in a manual or fully-automated operation, Daifuku North America's sorting and picking systems enable electronic communication to workers or equipment regarding the location and amount of inventory to be distributed or stored. We have years of experience providing customized sorting and picking systems that are fast, efficient and accurate.
Manufacturing and Distribution
Wynright Corporation, a subsidiary of Daifuku North America Holding Company, designs and manufactures the Hybrid? System, which is a next-generation, multi-modal intralogistics system that combines the simplicity of light-directed picking systems with the step-by-step guidance of voice-directed systems. The HYBRID? system can be retro-fitted to your existing light or voice system. The Hybrid? System was designed to maximize the speed of information delivery to each user interacting with it. Furthermore, the Hybrid System maximizes the quality of the work accomplished and the quality of the picking data relayed back to the warehouse management system (WMS).
Pick quality is maintained by the lights system. Put quality is maintained by a carton scan following each spoken put command performed by a user

CAPS Mobile Cart
Wynright Corporation designs and manufactures CAPS Mobile Cart, which uses technology to create a rolling pick or put line, ideal for split-case or slow-moving SKUs typically stored on shelving. Easily integrated with any existing warehouse management system, this low-cost-of-entry mobile system facilitates growth and reconfiguration for seasonal spikes and changes in demand. Efficient path-control algorithms allow fast and efficient real-time order selection or consolidation.
Wynright Corporation provides outstanding picking efficiencies in a variety of warehouse, DC and manufacturing applications. The CAPS put-to-light system delivers high efficiency SKU sortation or consolidation of orders. These versatile systems are easily configured to allow a SKU to be distributed to multiple stores, departments or orders. Multiple components of an order can be consolidated at shipping or packing. After a brief training period, usually less than half an hour, order picker productivity improves substantially.
Product is routed to a put-to-light zone by SKU. Lighted display modules are mounted on the face of the workstation to associate each put location with a display module. The picker scans the SKU of the product to be distributed, and a put indicator directs the picker to each target put location, along with the number of units required. Actions are reported in real-time to the system. The picker can indicate if an item was picked complete or incomplete and mark any backorder quantities. No put list is needed, so the picker's hands are free - thus speeding up the whole process.
Wynright provides outstanding efficiencies in a variety of warehouse and distribution center applications, CAPS pick-to-light is the ideal order fulfillment system for fast-moving, full and split case picking operations. Driven by our advanced CAPS pick engine software, it uses CAPS Spectrum or CAPS Next hardware to ensure easy, modular installation and configuration.
Pick-to-Light Digital Pick
Daifuku North America's pick-to-light digital pick system queues workers to pick items in accordance with the digital indicator on a rack or shelf. It can integrate with standard shelving, an automated storage & retrieval system (AS/RS), conveyor, overhead monorail and sorting transfer vehicle (STV) and is effective for case and piece picking.
Put-to-Light Digital Assort
Daifuku North America's put-to-light system queues workers of where to put items on a rack or shelf. Designed as a space-efficient, economical method for consolidating orders for small parts, it supports high-speed manual sortation with near 100% accuracy. Our put-to-light system can integrate with AS/RS, conveyor, overhead monorail and STV.
Trap Arm Sorter
For lower sort rate applications, Wynright offers a trap arm sorter. The arm diverts the product from the sort conveyor onto a powered or non-powered 90-degree take-away conveyor. This diverter changes the orientation of the product from the sortation conveyor through the take-away by 90 degrees.
High-Speed Jet Surfing Sorter Conveyor
Daifuku North America's sliding-shoe sorter, named the Jet Surfing Sorter, is a high-speed automated sortation system for channeling and sorting medium size items, totes, and cartons. Operating at speeds up to 165 m/min. (541 ft./min.). Daifuku North America's Jet Surfing Sorter can process as many as 13,500 pieces per hour for a 450 mm (17.7 in.) load length. Bi-directional shoes allow items to be offloaded to both sides of the sorter, improving space efficiency while providing greater design flexibility. Loads are tracked on the sorter using pulse mode tracking and are then diverted using mechanical or magnetic actuators. Our Jet Surfing Sorter for input uses a high-speed merge conveyor, sorting shoes for diverting loads, and a variety of sort lane conveyors to maximize sorting efficiency. This product can be installed on floor or mezzanines - to preserve floor space for operations. Surfing sorters are recommended for:
- Case and tray sortation in distribution centers
- Sortation within a conveyor system to other conveyors or storage devices
- Sortation to dock doors
- Simple to complex sortation within an automated system
For medium sort rate applications, Wynright offers a pusher sorter that diverts the product from the sort conveyor onto a powered or non-powered 90-degree or parallel take-away conveyor. For parallel take-away applications, this diverter will change the orientation of the product by 90 degrees.
Bow Arm Sorter
For lower sort rate applications, Wynright offers a bow arm sorter. The bowed face of the arm diverts the product from the sort conveyor onto a powered or non-powered 45-degree take-away conveyor. This diverter will maintain the orientation of the product from the sortation conveyor through the take-away.
Flat Face Arm Sorter
Flat face arm sorters are designed and manufactured by Wynright. Wynright's High Speed Flat Face Arm Sorter is precision timed to swing out and make contact with the product to be sorted at a controlled rate of acceleration to provide a gentle sweeping divert action. Its flexibility and effectiveness in handling and separating make it the ideal sorter for a wide range of packaged goods and materials.
MB30 Sorter and MB90 Sorter
Multi-belt sorters are designed and manufactured by Wynright. With fast conveyor speeds and design features that produce high sort rates, Wynright's multi-belt sorters MB30 and MB90 meet demanding sortation requirements for speed and accuracy. Instead of one wide belt, these sorters efficiently transport product over the surface of multiple smaller belts. Each of these belts has an individual take-up, creating proper tension across all the belts.
Sliding Shoe Sorter - AS-13, AS-20, AS-30
Wynright's AS-13 Sliding Shoe Sortation conveyor is a medium speed, positive divert sorter designed to accurately track and gently sort all types of carton sizes and configurations at designated points along the transportation line with a highly reliable sort rate.
The AS-20 Sliding Shoe Sortation conveyor is a high speed, positive divert sorter designed to accurately track and gently sort all types of carton sizes and configurations at designated points along the transportation line with a highly reliable sort rate.
The AS-30 Sliding Shoe Sortation conveyor is a high speed, positive divert sorter designed to accurately track and gently sort all types of carton sizes and configurations with a highly reliable sort rate. Its high speed divert station handles high volumes of products, while mitigating wear and tear since it has no moving parts. The result is a divert station that provides high throughput rates, lasts longer, and requires less overall maintenance.
