Sortation Conveyors

ZiPline Conveyor Shoe Sorter

Quickly distribute products with the perfect sortation solution for your system

Sortation is the process of inducting and separating products to specific destination lanes with the purpose of arranging product for a better means of distribution in order to increase productivity. Sortation systems are often employed when high quantities of products need to flow to different destinations for further processing or shipping.

Sorters are the ideal solution for separating products from in-feed conveyor lines to shipping lanes, palletizing operations, packing stations & other sortation applications. Sorters are versatile and can sort a wide range of product sizes and weights to multiple divert lanes.

Sortation Conveyors by Throughput

High Throughput Sorters

Used when throughput rate requirements are greater than 60 product sorts per minute. The sortation technology that meets this specification includes sliding shoe sorters, cross-belt or tilt-tray sorters, and 30 degree narrow belt sorters.
 

Medium Throughput Sorters

Medium throughput sorters, which have rates between 20 and 60 product sorts per minute, include pivoting wheel sorters, paddle sorters, angled roller top (ART) sorters and activated roller bed (ARB) sorters.

Low Throughput Sorters

The lowest throughput sorters, which handle rates up to 20 product sorts per minute, include 90 degree transfer sorters, pusher sorters and swing-arm sorters.

There are several types of sortation conveyors used for unit loading handling applications.  These include sliding shoe sorters, narrow belt sorters, pivoting wheel sorters, angled roller top (ART) sorters, Activated Roller Belt (ARB) sorters, Tilt Tray sorters, cross belt sorters, High Speed Paddle sorters and High Speed Pusher sorters.  When selecting a conveyor sorter it’s very important that the equipment be properly matched for the application.  Important aspects such as product type, size and weight as well as overall system throughput should all be considered.
