BEUMER Group has introduced the Rota-Sorter, a flexible sortation system that can handle different types of items such as bags, polybags or packages. The machine is very fast and uses a special discharge technology that helps ensure the gentle handling of items.
The Rota-Sorter helps users transport light, flat items of 120 x 60 x 5 millimeters up to 1,200 x 800 x 800 millimeters 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.
The modular system allows companies to remain very flexible: for example, the discharge systems can be mounted anywhere on the outside of the sorter, can be changed in their positioning afterwards and additional discharge systems can be added. Discharge can be realized on one or on both sides. Instead of operating the system as a single sorter, the capacity can be increased to 15,000 items per hour by operating it independently as a double or triple sorter.
