Product Portfolio
  • Material Handling Solutions

      • Conveying, sorting and buffering

        The transport and sorting solutions for intralogistics are a derivative of Ferag's conveyor technology, originally developed for the production of print media. They are ideally suited to distribution logistics outside the graphical industry. Any number of applications are possible. The material flow systems can be used in processing industries, in fashion, automotive and food logistics, and also for e-commerce applications.
          • Denisort

          • Conveying, sorting and order picking in one system

            Conveying, sorting and order picking: the very flexible denisort tilting tray sorter kills no less than three birds with one stone. Thanks to its robust and proven design, the system can be used seamlessly for all three processes, even in the third dimension. This means that denisort not only allows a continuous flow of materials across several levels, but also fully meets intralogistics requirements in the e-commerce sector. Different tray sizes, which can be strung together any which way, for maximum flexibility: in this way, variously sized products can be processed at high throughput rates. The tilting trays are able to open to either side as needed, while ensuring gentle and careful treatment of conveyed goods. Even fragile products such as medicine vials and electronic modules can be handled. In addition, denisort is an ideal solution for handling residual post in postal facilities.

            The denisort tilting tray sorter:

            • Also ideal for bulky, light, round or sensitive products
            • 3D capability, also across several levels
            • Multilevel for maximum capacity in the tightest of spaces
            • Modular and extensible design
            • Energy-efficient technology thanks to rolling friction
            • Proven and robust engineering
            • Cost-effective in operation, service and maintenance
            • Low-noise

          • Deniway

          • Making complex tasks simple

            The deniway plate chain conveyor is based on a chain supported by low-friction rollers. Thanks to low rolling resistance, very long conveying distances can be achieved without troublesome transfers and using only a few drives. The 3D layout capability allows continuous material flow over several levels. The system is designed as a modular kit, so it scales easily. A line can thus be modified and extended with very little effort. In this way, all processes taking place in a conveyor can be linked together. The virtually maintenance-free design guarantees a long service life with low running costs and high efficiency.

            The deniway plate chain conveyor:

            • Conveying, sorting and distributing in one system
            • 3D-capable for optimum space utilisation
            • Material flow over long distances with no transfer points
            • Modular and extensible design
            • Energy-efficient technology thanks to rolling friction
            • Proven and reliable technology
            • Cost-effective in operation, service and maintenance
            • Low-noise

          • Easychain

          • Fast and flexible in all directions

            With the continuous and seamless conveying system easychain, even narrower curve radii can be realized than with the „bigger brother“ deniway. This is particularly noticeable when complex, three-dimensional layouts are required. In addition, the highly modular system can be quickly installed and converted. The system is based on rollers that reduce friction and thus both energy consumption and wear. That is why easychain is robust, reliable and largely maintenance-free.

            The conveying system Easychain:

            • Conveying, sorting and distributing in one system
            • 3D-capable for optimum space utilisation
            • Material flow over long distances with no transfer points
            • Modular and extensible design
            • Energy-efficient technology thanks to rolling friction
            • Proven and reliable technology
            • Cost-effective in operation, service and maintenance
            • Low-noise

          • Skyfall

          • Unique gravity conveyor system

            Skyfall is the unique conveyor system that makes use of gravity and the third dimension. A simple rail profile with roller bodies allows the most diverse articles up to 10 kilograms in weight to be conveyed from A to B. Two types of shuttles are available. Type M for items up to 5kg. Type L can carry up to 10kg. And when that weight exceeds 10 kilogrammes, trolley systems are used. For this reason, the load-carrying adapters on the hangers can be adapted to almost any customer-specific requirement.

            Performance figures of up to 12‘000 items per hour (throughput per line) position Skyfall alongside the most potent systems available. With Skyfall, Ferag develops made-to-measure and turnkey solutions for all intralogistics processes. From the development and production of intelligent conveyor technology through to system integration and complex material flow solutions.

            Processing while conveying is the core competency at Ferag. Automatic loading and unloading of pouches, pick-up, transfer, weighing, ejection, labelling, etc. are functions that are carried out by Skyfall at high speed in a single plane or in the third dimension. The buffering of items between two processes of different throughput rates and buffering in general is one of the big strengths of Skyfall. The decoupling of integrated processes enables troubleshooting interventions as well as the compensation of throughput rate variations. The buffer saves space and energy and can be adjusted to fit the exact production requirements.

            The unique gravity conveyor system Skyfall:

            • Conveying, buffering, sorting, order picking and consignment in one system
            • Keeping usable floor area free by use of the third dimension
            • Application-specific load carriers with the possibility of multiple loading
            • Fully automatic loading and unloading possibilities
            • Reduction of manual tasks along the process chain
            • Increased productivity and efficiency thanks to automation
            • Traceability throughout the system
            • Modular and extensible design
            • High-quality and maintenance-friendly engineering
            • Energy-efficient technology thanks to rolling friction and use of gravity

              • Generate added value with Ferag systems

                When it comes to the efficiency of a modern mailroom, added value like stitching, trimming, folding, gluing, foil wrapping and addressing are now factors that spell success. They offer both publisher and advertiser new ways to promote the publisher's own products and produce them in a magazine-like quality. Innovative special advertising formats also generate interactivity between the reader and advertiser and turn the newspaper into an attractive advertising platform. The return on Investment of a mailroom thus becomes equally attractive. All components in the area of added value can also be integrated into an installation as a modular retrofit.

                Added Value for postpress processing:

                • Stitching
                • Trimming

              • Gathering / Stitching

              • High performance in gathering/stitching for postpress processing

                For the industrial postpress processing of magazines and periodicals in the high-speed sector, the UniDrum system is unsurpassed in terms of speed and flexibility. With production speeds of up to 40,000 copies an hour for A4 products and 32,000 for A3 products, the UniDrum achieves maximum efficiency while lowering costs per copy to a minimum. What's more, PreTronics for fully automatic format presetting makes for extremely short set-up times, while QualityEye detects skewed copies or incomplete sections, which in turn ensures very low levels of waste. In combination with the high performance SNT-50 trimming drum and the tried-and-tested inserting drum, trimming and inserting can be accomplished without a loss of performance. So net output comes very close to gross output. Single-copy addressing and foil-wrapping of products can also be integrated as and when required.
