Narrow Belt Sorters

Save warehouse space with narrow belt sorters

The Narrow Belt Sorter is designed with multiple narrow belts to transport product. High-friction divert wheels rise up between the belts to accurately divert product at a 30 to 90 degree angle down the divert lane. The conveyor is designed to transfer small to medium-size items such as boxes, cartons, totes, etc. and product can be transferred off either side of the sorter.

Bastian Solutions has a strong history of narrow belt sorter installations across many industries. Let us help you achieve new levels of automated sortation accuracy.

How a Narrow Belt Sorter works

“Very narrow belt” sorters are designed with multiple narrow belts to transport items. High-friction divert wheels rise up between the belts to accurately divert product at either a 30 or 90 degree angle down the divert lane.

90° Configuration

When the pop up rollers are positioned at a 90 degree angle to the main belts, the product is moved off the sorter at a right angle causing a change in the product orientation, and operates at speeds up to 90 cartons per minute.

30° Configuration

The high speed unit with pop up rollers positioned at a 30 degree divert angle is capable of handling high sort rates, up to 100 cartons per minute, based on product size and does not alter product orientation.

Benefits of Narrow Belt Sorters

The narrow belt sorter possesses the advantage of exerting smaller amounts of “pushing” forces on the product. The narrow belt sorter also provides the advantage of space savings when configured with 90 degree divert lanes since lanes are able to be placed virtually next to each other.
