Several types of sortation conveyor are available for different applications. Below are some sample images and information on the different types of sortation conveyor. Sortation systems are often employed when high quantities of products need to flow to different destinations for further processing or shipping. Sorters are versatile and can sort a wide range of product sizes and weights to multiple divert lanes.
Slat Sortation Conveyor
Products are transported on anodized aluminum slats where at a predetermined location, divert shoes move diagonally across the conveyor to push the product onto a take-away line. Designed for high speed applications with positive, gentle product diversion.
High Speed Sortation
The belt-driven sortation conveyor concept provides a reliable method of tracking packages to the divert stations. The diverter may be controlled by photo cells, a code reader, a PLC controller, or other established control methods.
ProSort Slat Sortation Conveyor
ProSort 131 sortation conveyor moves the load on high strength aluminum slats, and incorporates a system of shoes to move diagonally across the conveyor to divert the product conveyed to the appropriate line.
Medium Roller Transfer Conveyor
The ProSort MRT is ideal for 2-sided item transfers. Product can be transferred off either side of the conveyor to other right angle conveyors, workstations, packing operations, ticketing stations, shipping departments, or other similar operations.
Angle Sortation Conveyor
ViperSort is a right angle sortation conveyor deployed to sort small to medium size products. The ViperSort utilizes a patented design which enables the sorting of cylindrical products, extremely thin items such as blister packs, vinyl envelopes and other problematic items.
