Shoe sorter conveyors feature a bed with a series of aluminum profiles that create a flat surface for moving products. Each profile has a sliding shoe attached to it, which is used to divert the product to a dedicated destination lane. When the destination lane is reached, the shoe is electronically activated, gently pushing the product where it needs to go in one fluid movement.
A high-speed shoe sorter sortation system can handle up to 10,200 cartons per hour and by design allows for a smooth transition while diverting at these speeds. This system can be designed to divert product in a single direction or bi-directional depending on your application’s needs. The shoes on this system are made for easy removal, which makes it easy to maintain with a minimal amount of downtime.
