Linear Cross Belt Sorting System

Short Description:

Why narrow belt sorter popular nowadays? 1:It is flexible for different shape parcels excluding the round shape. Especially for cat litter and grains cannot be sorted by wheel sorter for the packing bag is soft and  will be stucked or slip. 2: Efficiency is higher than wheel sorter ,but narrow belt line cover less space than wheel sorter line .    3: It is mainly applied in loading end with high efficiency especially can it solve peak time parcels.

Introduction to Narrow Belt Sorters: Narrow belt sorters utilize linear motors and other power drives to propel a sequence of interconnected carts at high speed along a circular track. Each cart is equipped with a conveyor belt driven by an independent power source, capable of moving perpendicular to the direction of the cart's travel. Parcels labeled with barcodes are loaded onto the sorter's carts either semi-automatically or automatically. When a cart carrying a parcel reaches the designated sorting chute, the cart's belt activates, smoothly sorting the parcel.

Solving Small-Space Sorting Issues: Currently, cross-belt sorters and swing-wheel or swing-arm sorters, as mainstream sorting equipment in the logistics industry, usually require a significant amount of space. The vertical, circular arrangement of narrow belt sorter carts significantly reduces the footprint, effectively filling the gap for small-space sorting solutions.

Enhancing Automation and Efficiency at Small Sites: Currently, due to the limited space at small logistics sites, it is challenging to equip these sites with automated sorting equipment, necessitating substantial manual labor for sorting parcels, which is inefficient. Narrow belt sorters, with closely arranged chutes on both sides and the capability to sort a wide range of packages from 50g to 60kg, including cartons and sacks, can significantly improve automation and efficiency in sorting parcels at small sites.

Sorting Efficiency

Sorting efficiency calculation

Cart pitch is about 150mm, and the control system will match the optimal number of belt sorting according to the different sizes of parcels, so as to achieve the purpose of max efficiency.

Taking the conveying speed of 1.5m/s as an example, 36,000 belt carts can be driven per hour.

Then, based on the parcel size of 450mm (3 belts) and the parcel spacing of 750mm (5 belts), the max hourly efficiency is about: 36,000/5=7200 pieces/hour.

Technical Advantages

1.High sorting efficiency. Since the corresponding number of belt carts can be matched according to the parcel size ,the conveying capacity of the line can be fully utilized to achieve the purpose of efficient sorting.

2.It is applicable to a wide range of packages. Belt carts are almost seamless connected, which can be used for almost all shapes of packages except the round pieces.

3.Flexible and non-impact sorting. In the whole sorting process, there is no violence such as mechanical flapping or throwing. Thus minimize damage to the package.

4.The grid can be continuously configured on both sides to improve the utilization rate of the site.

Features of Linear cross belt sorter

1. In terms of solution floor space, Linear cross belt sorter is much smaller but for small to medium sized logistics and express industries with the storage area limited , the linear cross belt sorter is a good solution to this problem.

2. In addition, linear sorting is more efficient, usually up to 18,000 PPH, with an accuracy rate of 99.99%, and normally tens of thousands PPH efficiency with 1-3 man power can meet this sorting throughput, saving labor cost and making it easy to operate.

3. Linear cross belt sorting system supports automatic code scanning, weighing and measurement, saving sorting and management costs, with stable performance and flexible configuration.

4. Simple operation of loading parcels, configuration can be manually loading and automatic parcel induction. Unloading directly into the telescopic belt machine, to avoid manual handling saving time and effort, and with high efficiency.

5.Linear cross belt sorter can be customized based on the size, the number of intelligent carts, induction table and the size of the chute for automatic parcel dropping. Support inbound and outbound express and e-commerce warehouse sorting and transport.

The advantages of narrow belt sorters can be highlighted as follows:

1:Versatility in Handling Various Parcel Types: Narrow belt sorters are capable of efficiently sorting a wide range of parcel sizes and types, from lightweight items as small as 50g to heavy packages up to 60kg, including both cartons and sacks. This versatility makes them suitable for diverse logistics operations.

2: Space Efficiency: The vertical, circular layout of the narrow belt sorter carts significantly reduces the system's footprint. This compact design is particularly beneficial for facilities with limited space, allowing for the implementation of automated sorting systems in areas where traditional, larger sorters would not fit.

Increased Sorting Efficiency: With the ability to quickly and accurately sort parcels, narrow belt sorters enhance operational efficiency. Their design allows for smooth parcel transfer at designated sorting chutes, minimizing the risk of jams or errors and ensuring a steady flow of goods.

3: Automation in Limited Spaces: Narrow belt sorters enable the automation of parcel sorting at small logistics sites, where space constraints might otherwise prevent the use of automated sorting technology. This capability reduces the reliance on manual labor and improves sorting speed and accuracy, even in constrained environments.

5: Flexible Integration: The system's design allows for semi-automatic or fully automatic loading of parcels onto the sorter's carts, integrating seamlessly with existing logistics workflows. This flexibility facilitates the adaptation of narrow belt sorters into various operational setups, enhancing overall efficiency.

6:Effective Solution for Small-Space Challenges: By offering a high-efficiency sorting solution that occupies less space than traditional sorting systems, narrow belt sorters address the specific needs of sites with limited available area, ensuring that space constraints do not impede sorting efficiency or automation.
