Pharmaceutical distribution is a rapidly evolving landscape. Distributors are challenged with developing the distribution network the best meets patient needs, minimizes the cost of distribution, correctly manages inventory efficiently, and can be rapidly deployed and modified to this landscape. Yesterday’s networks are being re-evaluated to determine the best mix of instore, mail-order, local central fill, and mega central fill operations. – The tSort™ product line from Tompkins Robotics provides pharmaceutical distributors with solutions to fit a wide variety of their fulfillment requirements. – The slim tSort™ mini provides an excellent solution for order consolidation of multiple individual prescriptions to a single order consolidation destination or for sorting prescription bags to a store tote for customer pick-up. – The standard tSort™ is an excellent application for mail order shipping sortation. And the tSort+™ can be used for a wide variety of case sorting requirements. – The larger tSort+™ can be used for a wide variety of case sorting requirements to include inbound sortation. – The xChange robot can be used for automated extraction of totes from a tSort system for delivery to the next downstream process.
The tSort™ system can handle a variety of shapes and sizes of pharmaceutical products for your fulfillment needs.
• Traditionally, central fill pharmacy operations consisted of independent work cells. • These work cells are linked together with tote and puck handling conveyors and operate in a sequential process flow. • Multi order prescriptions are processed one at a time and passed along from work cell to work cell until the order is complete. • tSort links the operating cells together, creating the opportunity to streamline order fulfillment with parallel process flows, providing significant performance improvements.
