BEUMER Group has added the Rota-Sorter to its portfolio, a flexible and efficient sortation system that can handle different types of items such as bags, polypacks or packages. The robust machine is very fast and uses a special discharge technology ensuring the gentle handling of items.
The Rota-Sorter helps users transport light, flat items of 120 x 60 x 5 millimetres up to 1,200 x 800 x 800 millimetres and up to 31.5 kilograms on one line. The system is capable of processing up to 5,000 items per hour. The sinusoidal velocity curve of the discharge mechanism ensures gentle handling of the items, even at high throughput rates, thus considerably reducing damage rates. Its quiet operation is another strong advantage of the system.
The Rota-Sorter's simple structure provides functional reliability. The system consists of only a handful moving parts for example. The discharge system requires no complicated electronics and only a few sensors to ensure accurate sortation. The discharge system's robust design and easy accessibility for service technicians help increase system availability and reduce maintenance costs.
