T20556: In the job XML a new option has been added to send 5-digit trays to the commingler – there are now four options altogether:
1-- All - all qualified 5-digit pieces are split off for normal Presort.
2-- Select - only trays in non-origin loads are split off for normal Presort.
3-- Commingle - all pieces are sent to the Commingler – 5-Digit and BIN Trays are created. (Note: This is the new feature).
4-- None - all pieces are sent to the Commingler – only BIN Trays are created.
Note: The difference between ‘None’ and the new ‘Commingle’ option is that ‘None’ will NOT make 5-digit trays.
Tag and placard format changes for 1PASS-Prep:
T19275, T20073: Added first piece ZIP and last piece ZIP on Tray tags and Pallets flags.
We made the Zone prominent on the pallet flag and Bin prominent on tray tags. This uses the Form report creation feature. On MIXED pallets – Bins included are indicated on Pallet range with values separated by 02,04 (not including 03) etc.….
The Parent Container Content Line variable will have the pallet content for all pallet types. If 5-digit trays are being made there will be a ‘5D’ placeholder. A list of bins will follow. The addition of the 5D means this is displayed for all pallets, including direct bin pallets.
If there are five-digit trays on the pallet it will look like this:
with BIN 10-12 mail.
Otherwise it will be the standard:
Since the actual tag form is now the same for both 1- and 2-up, it has been renamed “tray_tag.form”.
The tray tags are consolidated to a single form using this syntax:
T20555: 1PASS-Prep now makes pallets for groups of Bins, if desired. The option is driven by having a file with Record_Type='EXT_Group' present in the scheme xml. The following element allows it to be named by the client/commingler:
(Note: The default label is ‘GRP’ if this element is omitted).
The actual grouping file should have a list of bins. Since Group and Bin pallets are mutually exclusive the pallet minimums will apply to either one as appropriate.
For example, this new file type allows a grouping level above bins for pallets:
A logical tray minimum can also be specified:
In the scheme XML, the commingler name can be specified directly, rather than relying on a file naming convention, buy using the following: UPX
This will print on the Tags and Placards if desired.
