Narrow Belt Sorter

Align and divert 12,000 cartons or totes per hour

The TURBO™ Sortation System is the newest advancement in the range of extremely reliable Narrow Belt Sorter technology by TGW-ERMANCO. The innovative, patent pending WAVE™ technology is used to align and divert products at rates of 12,000 cartons or totes (400 x 400 / 16" x 16") per hour. The COMMANDER™ Systems Control complements the mechanical hardware, operating the sortation system with efficiency and precision.

Six rows of rubber coated pop-up wheels are placed at the appropriate transfer positions between these belts. Each rows of wheels are raised and lowered independently when a carton comes into its target lane and the carton is guided from the sorter to the target lane at a 30° angle. To keep the gaps between the cartons for sorting as small as possible these rows of wheels are raised and lowered as the carton passes over, creating a wave motion.
