The Eurosort SBS comes in two configurations being the PU = push up version and the PD = pull down version. The Slide Belt Sorter is an effective and tested solution within its specific field of application. Generally speaking, this type of sorter is used for the automatic sorting of relatively square and stiff items. Usually, these items are able to slide of a belt.
The items to be sorted are fed on to the sorter-conveyor in either the conventional way by another conveyor or from the side under a 90 degrees angle. The products are detected on length and are given a destination. Once the product is positioned beside the right destination parts of the belt lifts up or goes down and the product will be free to slide of. The products are then dropped directly into a carton or into a chute, a roller conveyor / container etc. This sorter has very few moving parts which means low maintenance and low costs.
