Garments Sorting

The clothing industry has lately been subjected to significant changes. Inventories in shops have almost disappeared and also in the distribution centers only a small percentage of the new collection is being stored. This means that the received goods are directly used to fulfill orders of a batch instead of going to stock, in other words: cross-docking.

Hexapole Sorteer Software

Goods are, directly after being received from the supplier, led into the Garment Sorting System where they are sorted to individual branches. A percentage of the received goods, which are not assigned to branches, can directly be sorted to their related stock position.

The Hexapole Standard Sorting Software is flexible and can easily be configured to fulfill the process of cross-docking.

Also a complex process like automated sorting of returned goods is more and more common requested functionality. The Hexapole Standard Sorting Software can be used to sort returned goods according to product group, SKU or stock position.

Our Hexapole Standard Sorting Software is, despite to its name, open for user specific customer demands. Meaning, when required, additional functionality can be created and added to the standard modules. The software consists of a solid basis, originated by almost 25 years of experience. This basis can be expanded with customer specific sorting algorithms. Also the communication with the higher-level ERP or WMS system can be arranged according customer wishes.

Hanging clothes

Hexapole has developed the Hanging Garments Sorter (HGS) entirely in-house for sorting hanging clothing. The HGS system uses the most advanced and modern technologies and has proven its reliability time and time again in recent years.

HGS – a modular system

The HGS system is made up of modules. This means that the system can be installed quickly and effortlessly in particularly shaped spaces.

Adaptation to your company

The HGS largely automatically adapts to your specific situation. For example, the distance between clothes hooks and stations has virtually no influence on the functioning of the system. Small changes to the sorting system, for example if a station needs to be moved or additionally added, are mainly mechanical in nature. The adjustment within the software only takes a few minutes.

Cost savings

By continuing to innovate, our sorting systems have become increasingly cheaper. Your investment will generally pay for itself within three years.

Convince yourself! Our system is suitable for all companies with 15 or more points of sale.

  • the HGS system sorts between 6,000 and 12,000 items per hour
  • the sorting is extremely accurate
  • the HGS system has special modules to process returned items (e.g. back to suppliers, redistribution among branches or back to storage, etc.)
  • your overhead costs decrease significantly
  • the HGS system requires virtually no maintenance!

RFID Detection

Hexapole has developed a software module specifically for sorting hanging clothing that can recognize individual items of clothing by means of: an RFID chip in the barcode label, while these garments are in the sorting machine. This technique allows garments to be uniquely numbered and automatically recognized without the need for each garment to be manually scanned by the operator. Our Hexapole Standard Sorting Software, despite its name suggesting otherwise, is completely open to customer-specific adjustments. The software consists of a solid basis that has arisen from almost 25 years of experience. On top of this, a standard or customer-specific sorting algorithm can be placed. Communication with the higher-level ERP or WMS system can also be set up customer-specifically. Would you like to know more about our sorting solutions for the clothing industry?
