The Libraries in Clackamas County (LINCC) recently celebrated the first year of their deployment of HULK their central sorter from Lyngsoe Systems, along with the Lyngsoe Tote Check-in Server™ at its centralized sorting location. Over the year, the system has cut sortation time and reduced the number of couriers’ material transporting trips by 4,200 which is a 30% decrease from the previous year.
Just one year ago the LINCC libraries adopted the HULK, its central sorter provided by Lyngsoe Systems including a 27-bin Lyngsoe Sort Mate™ system and Lyngsoe Tote Check-in Server™. The custom solution provides efficiency of available space, while leaving materials handling staff free to accomplish their other work.
LINCC is a network of 13 libraries located South of Portland, Oregon., in the U.S. Lyngsoe Systems worked with the district to create a custom-designed automated system that would require minimal space and thereby leave materials handing staff enough room for their other tasks.

“It’s been amazing to see how far we’ve come in the last year implementing RFID and automated material handling,” the library district reported. It added that none of this success would be possible without the amazing team that runs the central sortation seven days a week, and LINCC conveyed a special thank you to its Materials Handling staff.
