Three Categories for automated sorting solutions

I.Stationary transport elements combined with stationary divert elements
à transport elements: mainly roller conveyors  
à divert elements: belt or chain transfer, puller, pusher, pop-up wheels, swingarm, …
But: High restriction in product range, difficult product tracking, limitation of throughput to approx. 3000/h

II.Mobile transport elements combined with stationary divert elements
à transport elements: belt conveyors, modular belts  
à divert elements: pusher, pop-up wheels, swingarm, …
But: Restriction in product range, limitation of throughput to approx. 4000/h

Mobile transport elements combined with mobile divert elements
à transport elements: modular belts, slats, trays, carriers
à divert elements: wheels, sliding shoes, tilting trays, driven belts
wide product range, high throughput > 8000/h up 15000/h
But: High initial investment costs
