Automated Return and Sorting systems

Lyngsoe designs, manufactures and installs the most innovative and reliable check-in and sortation systems available for libraries worldwide. Our equipment delivers significant productivity gains through reductions in labor-intensive workflow processes, maximizing lending availability and allow's staff to focus on delivering a high-level of patron service.


From large libraries to small branches, we provide tailored to your needs turnkey automated material handling solutions that seamlessly integrate RFID and/or barcode-based functionality into existing library systems.

The modular design of our sorting system ensures a fit-for-purpose solution that can easily be expanded or reconfigured. Modular configuration options mean that any number of chutes can be included in the equipment set-up, while software can be programmed to automatically handle the full range of library items, journals and manuscripts, etc., and discharge into a wide variety of carts, bins and containers.

Flexibility in our design means that our systems fit as neatly into an old building as a new building, and can work across multiple floors if required. We can also color coordinate equipment to match interior designs.


Lyngsoe sorting systems are designed to enhance your library's efficiency by eliminating time-consuming and labor-intensive tasks such as sorting items and checking items into the system thus freeing your staff for other more important tasks.

Automated check-in solutions

Returned library materials are presented to the sorter via a check-in station e.g. LibraryMate 1100, 2000 or LibraryMate 5000. All check-in solutions can utilize either RFID or Bar-Code or both.

We can provide an electronically adjustable counter height that delivers a comfortable and ergonomic position for all users children, adults or users with disabilities.

When mounted on an external wall, our automated check-in solution allows patrons to securely return items anytime of the day or night, even when the library is closed. This unit is specifically designed to be utilized on the exterior surface of a building as a walk up or drive up Automated Return. All returns can comply with and be supplied with required fire protection.
