Distribution centers, garment & parcel sortation.

Distribution & Sortation

Patti Engineering has revolutionized controls in sortation and distribution by using encoder-based sorting and localizing system components.

More accuracy. Less money.

Employing encoder-based sorting and combining the logic controller and information database on the same machine, Patti Engineering provides the most accurate sortation processes with significantly less hardware than traditional control solutions saving the client’s money and improving accuracy. Web-based reports allow managers of a Patti Engineering system to readily access their plant floor’s information anytime and anywhere.

Our 24/7/365 client support team will diagnose a 2:00am drive failure during a busy season, so that clients can get their system up and running again quickly. We have the industry expertise to design systems for flats, garments on hangers (GOH) and parcel sortation. In addition to designing new, we have upgraded existing systems that are not performing to the intended design or have become obsolete. A recent upgrade increased throughput by 20% and reduced missed sorts by a factor of five.
