Sortation conveyors provide a means of diverting a product from one conveyor line to another. By using controls and multiple sortation conveyors, product can be sorted by diverting the product only to the appropriate conveyor.
- Slat Sortation Conveyors move the product 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 conveyor. Slat sortation is suitable for moving smaller items that can not be sorted with tube or belt sortation methods. Usually deployed in higher-sort applications.
- Horizontal Belt Sortation is a lower cost solution when applications call for medium speeds and through-puts, and sortation to multiple lanes. Horizontal belt sorters are good for sorting corrugated cartons, trays, or totes and provide a reliable method of tracking packages to divert stations.
