Carousel Pusher Loop Sorters System 

A carousel pusher loop sorter is equipped with multiple drive units enabling full speed and full capacity operations with at least one drive unit out of service. Its speed of 1 m per second allows a throughput of up to 2700 bags per hour (1200 bags/h per induction). The friction drive technology provides a low noise and the elliptic cinematic of the pusher pallet makes the deviation of the bags smooth and precise. This solution has very low energy consumption as well as very low maintenance costs (compared to tilt tray or cross belt sorters). Compact and flexible, this system is easy to modify (carousel can be expanded quickly without long operation stop).

Cross-belt Sorter System Integration

A cross-belt sorter consists of integrated bi-directional conveyor belts. The bag travels along the conveyor and when it reaches its intended destination, the crossbelt conveyor gently transfers the bags to the desired destination.
