Today, over 400 Interroll Crossbelt Sorters are already in use worldwide by industry leaders such as Amazon, DHL, FedEx, UPS, Hugo Boss, Inditex (ZARA), Zalando and the Swiss, Austrian, and Chinese postal systems. Less complex control systems are used for this automation solution.
Therefore, there is no need for expensive installation, maintenance or reconfiguration expertise for the systems. The unique design principle ensures maximum availability, a very long system service life, low operating costs, and fast return on investment.
With the horizontal crossbelt sorter, goods can also be transported in curves and up or down slopes. This makes for an extremely flexible, three-dimensional sorting system. The vertical crossbelt sorter has a space-saving design and enables precise discharge and careful transport.
Mechanical Sortation Principal
The crossbelt carrier run on polyurethane coated wheels in aluminium profiles (linear sorter) or on steel tubes (horizontal sorter) and are pulled by a rubber block chain belt.
Once a crossbelt carrier reaches its intended destination, a pneumatically actuated plate makes contact with a drive wheel mounted underneath the chassis of the crossbelt carrier. In this way, the motion of the carrier is converted into driving the crossbelt, bringing the goods gently to their desired destination.
