Patent pending

The Automatic Garment Sorter is an automated and sophisticated system used to sort garments on hangers (GOH). It is the most affordable and simplest garment sorter in the market. Unlike other automated sorting systems, Planiform’s Automatic Garment Sorter does not require expert knowledge to maintain, therefore it does not require any maintenance contract. This new technology can be implemented in large, medium and small sized companies operating in markets such as industrial laundries, uniform rental companies, formal wear distributors (tuxedo), warehouses, e-commerce distributors and garment manufacturers. These companies are integrating this new sorter and increasing their productivity level. With multiple installations worldwide, our customers are providing a better and faster service to their clientele.

The sorter will read either the barcodes or RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tag sewed or heat sealed to each garment and will direct each garment to its respective line following Planiform’s proprietary mathematical algorithm. Multiple sort passes can be performed and will achieve full sorts. It can also accommodate an unlimited number of sorting criteria.

No matter what database system you are using, our software engineers will adapt our system to comply with any database we may encounter.

If you are using RFID tags in your process, the system can be paired with an RFID Soil Scan to read all of your items as soon as they come into your plant. This applies to different industries such as tuxedo rental, apparel rental, industrial laundries, etc. Once your sorting process is complete, we can add a bundle verifier to confirm that the orders are complete for client. This feature can be used for a more accurate invoicing to your clients.

Planiform will provide a turn-key project. A professional engineer will study your plant, and then the design, fabrication, installation and commissioning will follow. All this will result in a successful turn-key project and a fully satisfied customer.

FAQ

I want to calculate my ROI, how many operators will I need with your system?

Only 1 per sorter.

Your system is semi-automated, why shouldn’t I go with a fully automated one?

Very simple, again ROI. The additional cost to get a fully automated system won’t justify the additional labor savings. No matter the level of automation, you’ll still need an operator. Not to mention the considerable additional maintenance fees of a fully automated system.

I was expecting a more automated system, can't you make it more automated?

No problem we can automate the system more. Just let us know and we can provide you with a quote.

We had a different design in mind, can you modify your proposal?

No problem we can change the design or layout to suit your needs. Just let us know and we will update your layout or quote accordingly.

About my ROI, what’s your service contract going to cost me?

Nothing! For the first year we offer free phone technical support just in case. Your team can achieve the easy & quick maintenance on the system. Our clients usually use about 4-5 hours per year of technical support by phone. An hour bank can be sold in advance after the first year. But overall, it’s no big deal. There’s nothing else to consider.

We are going through a labor shortage out here, do my operators need to be trained?

Yes, but only for about 15 minutes. This system is very easy to use. If you can flip a burger, you can operate our system! You no longer need this superstar operator that knows everything by heart.

How much time will I be down during the installation?

About 2 to 3 weeks, depending on the system. However, we can lend you rolling racks for free if you need some.

I’m interested, what’s the next step?

You only need to purchase the on-site visit so that we can send an engineer to do a survey in your plant. This will allow us to adjust and lock down the price of this budgetary proposal.
