Optimal design of the return, sorting and transport processes
Telelift’s integrated libraries solution enables return and sorting processes in large public or academic libraries to be optimised over multiple storeys. Automated return and sorting systems, along with automated transport, are important components of a modern library’s self-service concept, enabling 24/7 library operation.
The process from return to placing back on the shelf
A book return machine accepts the media quickly and easily. On the touch screen the booking of the returned item into the library system is confirmed immediately and updates the user’s account automatically.
In no time at all, it arrives on the sorting belt, to begin its journey. Then, according to defined sorting criteria, the item is conveyed to a UniSortCar™ or sorted directly into a library trolley for reserved items.
All items are therefore transported efficiently and sorted in accordance with the LMS-based sorting strategy. The number of sorting destinations can be freely chosen, and increased at any time.
Telelift’s automated transport system transports the individual media item to its final destination in the public area or book storage – even in different floors or even different buildings – gently, quietly and without the need for additional reloading.
The capacity and performance of Telelift’s integrated library solution is precisely tailored to the library’s requirements. Due to spatial uncoupling of the book return and the sorting area, space in the entrance zone is greatly increased.
The following applies to the entire solution: Our own comprehensive service and support team guarantees your system’s operational readiness and long service life over the course of decades.
