How an Angled Roller Top (ART) Sorter works

Angled roller top conveyor is uniquely designed with a modular plastic belt that is embedded with angled rollers. On this conveyor the modular belt is fitted with rollers having diameters extending through both the top and bottom surfaces of the belt. As the belt moves along the conveyor, these rollers rotate and convey the load at a higher speed than that of the belt. Mechanisms in the undercarriage control when and where lateral product movement will occur.

Furthermore, these rollers are positioned at an angle to the belt length so as to convey the load angularly to the conveyor length. This enhanced speed and angular product flow makes this conveyor ideal for many material flow challenges. Divert locations can be relocated in the future for flexibility.

Benefits of Angled Roller Top (ART) Sorters

This sorter can divert practically packages of any size, from letter size to heavy pallet loads at up to 120 cartons per minute, bi-directionally. The system is highly configurable, with zero space required between diverts, providing an exceptional divert to required space ratio. Since the product rides on small rollers, you must consider the friction level of the product to be diverted. This sortation technology has recently been used in parcel sortation and in some cases takes the place of a shoe sorter.
