CrossBeltSorters, LLC has launched a new lower-cost cross belt sortation system that brings this type of automation to a much broader audience than previously seen. Utilizing "smart car" technology on an aluminum monorail, the new system leverages advanced control capabilities in an efficient way.
Flexible in layout, the new system is based on an aluminum monorail utilizing straight and curved sections that can be configured for virtually any shape or size. Smart cars move effortlessly on the rail, driven by very efficient linear induction motors with no moving parts. Each discrete smart car contains its own internal digital control with robust features, allowing for multiple recognition modes and reporting functions. Scalability is inherent to the design. Fast growing organizations may start with a small system and easily add on as growth requires. Multiple sorting operations, such as outbound parcel presort and returns processing, may also be run at the same time on one system.
Outbound applications include presorting, order fulfillment, consolidation, and parts delivery in manufacturing processes. Inbound applications, such as returns processing and consolidation, are also easily accomplished. Many different types of sort plans and system interfaces are available for each process with throughput of up to 6,000 items per hour.
