Sortation

More elaborate systems that require products to be delivered to different locations throughout the warehouse, will need some sort of sortation solution. Choosing the right sorter is a factor of many things: the physical attributes of the conveyed items, throughput rates, and space limitations to name a few. There are (7) classes of Automotion sortation conveyor that satisfy many different system requirements. From the cost-effective trap arm to the space efficient pop-up sorter, to the high speed, high volume shoe sorters, Automotion has the right sorter for you. Unsure which sorter is best for your application, Automotion's customer service representatives are standing by to help you make the right choice.

Interroll Horizontal Crossbelt Sorter

'Horizontal crossbelt sorters are characterized by their flexible, space-utilizing routing with curves that also conquer inclines and slopes. Feeds and destinations can be arranged in various ways and optimized to increase the system's performance. With an appropriate layout, it is possible to create several sorting areas with just one cycle. The horizontal crossbelt sorter is also perfectly suited for small spaces. For example, two crossbelt sorters with identical routes can be installed one on top of the other, i.e., doubled up. Horizontal crossbelt sorters can recirculate goods that have either not been recognized by identification technology or have not been discharged because all destinations were full.'

Interroll Vertical Crossbelt Sorter

'The main feature of Interroll's vertical crossbelt sorter with linear, straight routing ("above - below") is its distinctive space-saving design because of its compact, modular approach. A minimum width of 1.7 m is already sufficient, e.g., for a vertical sorter with a crossbelt carriage measuring 400 x 400 mm. This configuration can also save valuable space, if full containers are transported into the sorter. This is unique on the market. The infeed on the vertical sorter usually starts with an accumulating conveyor in front of the actual sorter - a simple conveyor belt. Operators are able to manually feed goods directly onto this accumulating conveyor - a cost-effective and ergonomic solution. The accumulating conveyor can, of course, also be loaded via semi-automated or fully-automated infeeds.'

Flat Face Arm Sorter

'Ideal for shipping and/or receiving operations with a high rate requirement. Can accomplish rates up to 60 cartons per minute when used with sortation belt conveyor running up to 450 feet per minute.* Handles a wide variety of conveyables up 75 lbs., depending on system sort rate and design. Gentle controlled sweeping action diverts conveyables at a 45º angle onto powered or non-powered takeaway conveyor. Air-operated arm can be controlled manually or remotely. Designed to be used with Automotion's standard belt conveyor or live roller divert conveyor. Best results accomplished when paired with an Automotion high speed induction conveyor.'

Pop-Up Wheel Sorter

'Ideal for shipping and/or receiving operations with a high rate requirement and numerous divert locations are required. Can accomplish rates up to 90 cartons per minute when used with sortation belt conveyor running at 180 - 300 feet per minute.* Handles a wide variety of conveyables up 75 lbs., depending on system sort rate and design. (3) rows of wheels lift the carton onto a 45º powered or non-powered takeaway conveyor. Modular construction allows for many design possibilities, such as unlimited sorter lengths and countless divert configurations. The assembly is also easier to maintain. Designed to be used with Automotion's standard belt conveyor.'

Sliding Shoe Sorters

'Ideal for shipping and/or receiving operations with a high rate, high volume requirement. Can accomplish rates up to 250 cartons per minute* at speeds up to 550 ft. per minute. Integrated advanced tracking system communicates the timing and amount of shoes needed to accurately divert product onto a take-away conveyor. Available in single or dual-sided configurations. AutoSort 13 features a shoe design of extruded aluminum and sound insulation and an electric divert switch instead of the standard pneumatic switch to enable the sorter to achieve even higher sortation rates.'

Pusher Sorter

'Ideal for shipping and/or receiving operations with a medium rate requirement and where linear space is limited. Can accomplish rates up to 40 cartons per minute when used with sortation belt conveyor running up to 250 feet per minute.* Handles a wide variety of conveyables up 75 lbs., depending on system sort rate and design. Diverts 90 onto a parallel or perpendicular, powered or non-powered takeaway conveyor. Air-operated arm can be controlled manually or remotely Designed to be used with Automotion's standard belt conveyor or live roller divert conveyor. Best results accomplished when paired with an Automotion high speed induction conveyor.'

Trap Arm Sorter

'Ideal for shipping and/or receiving operations with a medium rate requirement. Can accomplish rates up to 20 cartons per minute when used with sortation belt conveyor running at 100 to 250 feet per minute.* Handles a wide variety of conveyables up 75 lbs., depending on system sort rate and design. Diverts at an angle of 90º onto a powered or non-powered takeaway conveyor. Air-operated arm can be controlled manually or remotely. Designed to be used with Automotion's standard belt conveyor or live roller divert conveyor. Best results accomplished when paired with an Automotion high speed induction conveyor.'

Multi-Belt Sorters

'Ideal for shipping and/or receiving operations with a high rate, high volume requirement. Can accomplish rates up to 100 cartons per minute* at speeds up to 400 ft. per minute. Transports product on a surface of multiple belts. Each belt is properly tensioned by an individual spring take-up. The belt tracks feature a unique "rolling design", that results in a longer belt life, quieter operation, and a reduction in necessary horsepower. The AutoSort 16 uses a divert point that consists of a series of pop-up wheels that are angled at 30. These wheels are driven by the main conveyor and require no additional drives. The AutoSort 17 uses a divert point that consists of pop-up rollers that are angled at 90 º. The multi-belt sorter is a modular system that is composed of a drive section, intermediate bed(s), divert bed(s), and a tail section.'

Bow Arm Sorter

'Ideal for shipping and/or receiving operations with a medium rate requirement and where product orientation needs to be preserved. Can accomplish rates up to 30 cartons per minute when used with sortation belt conveyor running at 100 to 350 feet per minute. Handles a wide variety of conveyables up 75 lbs., depending on sys. sort rate and design. Diverts 45 onto powered or non-powered takeaway. Product maintains orientation.
