The Fives Slide Sorter is able to sort a wide range of items even those that are considered as "non conveyable or irregular" items, and in particular:
- items that are stable and regular in shape resulting in a sorting capacity of up to 6 000 parcels per hour for 500mm average-length items, as well as
- all kind of items that are more irregular in shape. These products are normally sorted with human intervention. Typical throughputs for these more complex shapes are in the range of 2 000 to 2 500 pieces per hour based on an average length of 1100 mm.
The Fives Slide Sorter has two user selectable speeds that allow the sorter controls to match the product type being sorted, resulting in a smooth and accurate divert cycle.
Designed for quiet, robust operation, the Fives Slide Sorter offers moderate sorting capacity for complexly shaped items.
The Slide Sorter is very energy efficient and uses power only when needed, resulting in a low operating cost system compared to other technologies.
