A Number of Variables Make Up the Ideal Sortation System

Sortation systems are a critical component of any material handling operation, providing automatic product identification and separation. These systems have the ability to divert product from one conveyor line to another in a wide variety of applications, from centralized palletizing, carton cross-docking and parallel processing product separation, to order consolidation and repack operations, shipping deconsolidation and redistribution, and distribution route/carrier separation.

Sortation Options

Sortation systems can be made up of a number of material handling systems. A selection of speeds and angles are available to meet the exact needs of each application. 

Wecon Systems, a leading provider of material handling solutions, offers a wide range of sortation technologies. When selecting which one is right for the application, consider the product characteristics of what’s being sorted, the throughput needed, the number of diverts and the available floor space. A number of options and configurations are available to meet each customer’s budget.

For example, Wecon carries the TGW Narrow Belt Sorter, TGW Right Angle Transfer, TGW Pop Up Wheel Transfers, and TGW Shoe Sorter technologies. Solutions for small package sort and high volume applications (tilt tray, bomb door, cross belt) are also available.
