Gentle sorting
Sorts even the most fragile items

The slide tray sorter is built to offer a sorting alternative for fragile products or products that can't be handled by a split tray sorter (bomb-bay sorter).The products are safely transported on angled trays. At the destination exit, the hatch on the bottom of the tray opens and the product gently slide into the angled chutes. This smooth sliding feature makes the system perfect for handling fragile products. We offer a number of configuration options for this sorter, including automatic or manual induction options, trays and exits. Based on your specific products and processes, we can confiugre the best solution.

If you are looking for a compact solution that can handle fragile products as well, our LR-sorter might be a good alternative.

Station options

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.
