Our Carton Sortation Solutions

Shoe Sorters

Shoe Sorters provide a positive divert for applications requiring a wide range of product weights and sizes on the same system. With possible divert rates over 200 cartons per minute, shoe sorters are also a great fit for high throughput applications. Shoe Sorters transport product on aluminum slats and sliding shoes angled at 17, 22, or 30 degrees to push product onto take away lines.

Activaed Roller Belt Sorters

Activated Roller Belt (ARB) Sorters use plastic belting with embedded rollers to provide gentle and precise sorting of a variety of items. ARB Sorters are capable of sorting bi-directionally, at 30 degrees, and at 90 degrees. Because of their unique technology, ARB Sorters are the perfect fit to divert poly bags.

Narrow Belt Sorters

Narrow Belt Sorters are a great option for sorting small to medium cartons at rates up to 175 cartons per minute. Narrow Belt Sorters use multiple narrow belts to transport product and 30 or 90 degree pop-up rollers mounted between the narrow belts to divert product.

Arm Sorters

Bow Arm, Trap Arm, and Flat Faced Arm Sorters provide a positive divert in lower rate applications. Arm sorters are great for diverting large items that other sortation types struggle with.

Wheel Sorters

Wheel Sorters use pop-up or steerable wheels to divert products. Wheel Sorters are an economical solution for a system that requires a medium rate application.

Bombay Sorters

Bombay Sorters sort items that are too small or lightweight for traditional sortation methods. Bombay sorters use a “trap door” style carrier traveling on a continuous loop to drop items into sort locations.

Our Unit Sortation Solutions

Tilt Tray Sorters

Cross Belt Sorters

Cross Belt Sorters are used to sort small items, including apparel, cartons, and high friction items, at a high rate. Cross Belt Sorters use small, bi-directional conveyor sections mounted to a continuous loop to divert products into a chute.

Bombay Sorters

Bombay Sorters sort items that are too small or lightweight for traditional sortation methods. Bombay sorters use a “trap door” style carrier traveling on a continuous loop to drop items into sort locations.

Pusher Sorters

Pusher Sorters use a pusher attached tray traveling in a continuous loop to sort small items. Pusher Sorters can be installed in a traditional “racetrack” layout or in an over / under layout to help keep space usage to a minimum.

Robotic Sortation

Robotic Sortation uses autonomous mobile robot bases with cross belt or tilt tray sections mounted to it. These systems have no single point of failure, are fast to implement, and don’t rely on a set linear path to sort product.
