Generally speaking, a flat sorter (also known as a Bomb-bay sorter) is used for the automatic sorting of relatively lightweight and flat items. These items include garments, books, pharmaceuticals, small parcels, flats, mixed mail, multi-media, jewelry, accessories and more. The machine is suitable for products that normally might not be handled on standard sorters.
Flat Sorters from EuroSort come in various carrier configurations such as a split tray, tilt tray or a combination of both .
High level operation of sorter Items to be sorted on a flat sorter are inducted onto a EuroSort tray by a simple manual process or by an automatic induction system. When the patented tray is positioned above the destination the tray is opened. The content then drops flat (Bomb-bay) or slides out (tilt tray) into the destination which can be directly into a carton/tote or into an engineered packing chute.
A unit sorter for sorting the combination in one machine such as cartons, polybags and all other odd-sized articles. From a 200 gram small polybag upto a 10 kgs carton, herefore you can use the EuroSort Push-Tray sorter. An efficient way of sorting when you are in need of a capacity untill a maximum of 12.000 articles per hour. The combination of small cartons with polybags is not an easy one to sort. Therefore EuroSort created the Push Tray sorter based on our profound experience with the Flat sorter (Bombay).
An universal sorter of both cartons, polybags and other odd-sized articles. The combination of sorting heavy cartons and light polybags on the same sorter has been a difficult task. Until now. The EuroSort Push-Tray sorter is ideal for sorting products in the range from approx. 200 gram (7 oz.) and small polybag to approx. 10 kgs (40 pound). The capacity of sorting is up to 12,000 units per hour.
But what if you do not need to sort out that kind of numbers per hour and you want a simple machine, able to run 3 dimensionally through your building, without a lot of electrical controls on it? Because of the lower speed that the EuroSort Slide Belt Sorter runs at, the distance between the destination chutes can be much smaller than other solutions.
When you are handling smaller packages & cartons (which can stand a drop) at higher rates the EuroSort Flatsorter is ideal for sorting at much higher rates (up to 28,800 units per hour) and is generally used for items under 4 kgs. (10 lbs). If your product-range is a mixture of cartons and polybags, the EuroSort Push Tray sorter is the right choice.
Sorting with all EuroSort machines can be done directly into a Gaylord, chutes, roller container or accumulation gravity lanes.
Before the EuroSort auto induction stations the system integrators can install various special equipment by e.g. weighing/dimensioning of the packages.
