Abstract (en)

[origin: US2002134710A1] In a method for automated sorting of objects and combining the objects to assortments according to a selectable sorting specification, the objects are removed from a supply and an object sorting position for the objects is determined, respectively, by a control unit according to a sorting specification. The objects are placed onto a belt conveyor in an intermediate position in proximity to the object sorting position by at least one first manipulating device acting as a feeding device. The objects placed onto the belt conveyor are continuously conveyed into a working area of controllable second manipulation devices acting as placing devices arranged downstream of the feeding device. The objects are gripped by the placing device and positioned in the object sorting position determined for the objects.
