With Nex.Return to the Nex.Level

Service as you and your users like it! Simply put the library item in the slot - done! The user account is free for new loans. The items are promptly booked back into the LMS. The security bit is automatically reactivated. Depending on your requirements, the items are sorted intelligently according to your specifications: in a media bin, on a stacking trolley, in a Nex.Box. Sorting containers can be freely combined depending on your needs.

Item return around the clock – indoor or outdoor - regardless of weather? Integrated in the building exterior or in the foyer? We make your outdoor returns safe and reliable.

  • Automates monotonous workflows
  • Fits libraries of any size
  • Optimally tailored to needs and space

A system that grows with you

Improve your library efficiencies: our automated return systems transport library items via conveyor belts where they are then deposited in the Nex.Bin or Nex.Cart in order to reach their end destination. If certain items are to be transported to another floor or to the next room, we have the right modules in order to do that. Corners, curves or slopes are no obstacle for our modular systems.

Configure your sorting goals as you wish, so that the return process becomes even more efficient. All of our sorting containers can be freely combined on the systems and exchanged if necessary.

And if your needs grow, the system can be successively expanded even after years.

  • Minimal footprint
  • Extremely fast and particularly quiet
  • Accepts any format
  • Horizontal and vertical transport
  • Dynamic routing for curves, corners and inclines
