The LR-sorter sorts a wide range of products to predefined destinations. The vertical layout enables bidirectional (left-right) sorting, which maximizes the number of exits in a small footprint.
The sorter is built on our proven slide tray sorter technology and offers a compact solution. Thanks to the I-shaped layout, the system has a small footprint and offers possibilities for projects with limited space available. This sorter is often used for outgoing goods, but is also capable of handling returns.
The LR-sorter is designed with expansion in mind and therefore has a flexible and scalable layout that allows for easy expansion. We offer a range of station options to offer the best fit for your process. In addition we offer different layout options. This includes bidirectional (sorting to the left and right) and unidirectional sorting (to one side only).

This exit is especially fit for projects where a buffer is needed. We often see this station in e-fulfillment or fashion projects. Products can be moved from the chute into the shipping medium by operators. The chutes are optimized to allow ergonomic handling of products. Additionally, different packing table layouts are possible upon request. Chutes can also be used in combination with cartons, totes, or trolleys. Our double chutes offer a more compact solution but do increase the overall height of a sorter.
Based on the shipping medium, we provide chutes with an open end, to directly sort into the carton, tote or trolley. We also provide chutes with a cut-off option. The end of the chute can be either closed or opened, offering a buffer when exchanging a full or completed exit medium. These stations are often used in e-fulfillment or fashion projects.
Like the cartons, totes, or trolleys, these stations are selected based on the shipping medium. If all products are to be shipped in cages or bags, we can directly sort into these mediums. This saves time as operators don't have to worry about moving products from the chute into the bags or cages. However, these stations are quite high and could affect the height of the sorter. Typically, these stations are found in projects involving small parcels or envelopes.
Our conveyor buffer stations are used if large products are part of the product scope. By sorting onto a conveyor, we offer a large buffer for items. The length of the conveyors is determined by the size of the products and expected throughput. We often use gravity conveyors for this solution, but driven conveyors are an option as well.
