Autonomous operation 24/7

Installing the Book Drop station will allow your library to accept previously borrowed books from readers around the clock, any day of the week, without the participation of a library employee.

Using the specialized conveyor of the Book Flow sorter will allow the system to sort books independently in at least 3 directions, according to the categories you choose.

Sort function

The sorting conveyor connects to the book return station and sorts the books in three directions. The books returned by readers are automatically sorted by storage location, book genre, etc.

The design of the conveyor allows several such devices to be connected to increase the sorting directions of the books.

Basket with floating bottom —
Library Cart

Specially designed basket for receiving books from the sorter conveyor. The basket is equipped with a movable bottom that lowers under the weight of the books, reducing the drop height of the books.

The basket has good handling and is equipped with a wheel stopper to prevent the basket from accidentally rolling away from the sorter.
