The split tray sorter is a tray-based bomb bay sorter, developed to handle flat goods such as packets, books, garments, and accessories. As this sorter drops the items into roll containers or bags, this is not suited for the most fragile items. When looking for a solution that also handles fragile items, the slide tray sorter or the LR-sorter might be a better fit.
The split tray sorter is able to sort outgoing goods for shipment as well as returned goods for restocking. It has a characteristic oval shaped conveyor on which the trays circulate. Our “open oval” design allows operators to work in the open space inside of the oval. Products are transported along the sorter on trays that discharge the items directly into stations through a bomb bay door mechanism. Products can be inducted into the sorter trays manually or automatically.
We offer two tray types for our split tray sorter: the split tray (bomb-bay) and tilt tray.
