This general class of equipment is
typically an array of closely coupled, high density diverters used to sort
cartons/totes to specific transportation lanes / chutes for consolidation
and/or shipping functions. There are many different styles within this
product class. Here are a just a few for general information.
Popup wheel – This class of
sorter is usually based around a Slider Bed conveyor with diverters
comprised of arrays of wheels that drive the load off onto a spur when
actuated to contact the bottom of the load, slightly above the belts
Steerable wheel – Similar to
Popup wheel, the diverter wheels variably skew allowing a greater degree of
control and the opportunity for diverts left and right at a diverter
Narrow Belt Sorter
same principles as the wheel Popup and Steerable wheel sorters, transport
down the length of the sorter is performed by an array of narrow, evenly
spaced belts. This allows for a clean division between transport and
Small Item Sorters -
the same technologies as their bigger cousins, the small item sorters are in
a class of their own. These machines are well suited to E-distribution
applications of like sized small items, such as video cassettes and CDs.
Many styles are available newer innovations are using micro-belt
technologies with very high rate capabilities.
(or Slat) Sorters – Used in high rate carton sortation applications such
as loading dock areas of large distribution centers Named after the
sliding ‘pucks’ that guide loads off the main sorter, typically down
conveyor lanes or chutes, these machines are the fastest in their class.
