At the time Sortec began to develop its first generation of rejection systems for the beverage industry the task was to transfer more or less uniform boxes, beverage crates or beverage packs like six packs. That was in the nineties and it was comparably easy.
Today there is an increasing variety of boxes and packs of different weights passing along the conveyor belt. On top of that is the need for gentle product handling by the divider. Sensitive logos or thin-walled corrugated cardboard packages, cartons or shrink packs must not by damaged by the sorter.
Sorting became more and more difficult. For several years now Sortec masters the sophisticated transfer of this challenging mix - even at variable speeds. Our sorting solutions manage to move the containers and crates in such a manner that they are always delivered exacltly to their scheduled position by the diverter.
According to preset parameters our systems guarantee that a pack is conveyed with approprioate acceleration and suitable speed to the center of the parallel lane, without being twisted or touching the opposite guide rail.
The use of our systems significantly contributes to the performance of the whole plant. For example by reducing the work load of the palletizing robot.
Our sorting systems take care of common turning and positioning tasks. The preefeeding laner enables the robot to create more layers per hour. That is our understanding of advanced sorting, which makes the production flow much more efficient.
Fragile cartons and products can be moved also with rolls to the next belt.
Dividing two to three lines of products.
The control unit make sure for regular product outflow on each line after dividing with a count program.
The mechanics are mounted on a welded, stable U-tube bracket and can be swivelled completely. In the picture you can see the black square clamping plates.
Above and below the large black jaws that hold the U-tube bracket in an appropriately angled position.
This is the only way to ensure that a flat angular arrangement is set at high belt speed and an angle of up to 90 ° at slow belt speed. The arrangement can be adjusted.
Pushing the product to the middle and leaving on the middle of the pusher boards, stops unnecessary acceleration or braking moments, which could result in the packs tending to turn.
With the exception of a few special designs, all frame arrangements are based on this model.
The structure can be individually adapted and has been very successfully tried and tested in practical use for over 20 years!
