Conveyor sorting systems—also sometimes referred to as sortation systems—are material handling technologies designed to increase the efficiency and accuracy of manufacturing and shipping operations. Industry professionals use them to separate products from in-feed conveyor lines and direct them to shipping, palletizing, packaging, and other processing stations. They are suitable for use with a wide range of items, varying in both size and weight.
As an automation systems integrator, Reko Automation specializes in providing factory automation solutions, including conveyor sorting systems. Our team has the knowledge and experience to optimize and implement solutions to fully meet each customer’s unique needs. This supports the client with the latest technology, flexible features, reduced mundane labor tasks, and improved efficiency. Regardless of the complexity of the manufacturing challenge, we can design, build, test, and install an effective and efficient automation solution.
There are many types of conveyor sorting systems available, and some work in conjunction with to form part of an overall Smart Conveyor Solution:
These types of systems are often integrated with delivery and assembly conveyors. They deliver key components to other subsequent automated devices to enable further value-added processes.
Compared to manual or conventional sorting methods, sorting conveyor systems offer numerous advantages to industrial shipping facilities, including:
Recent advancements in material handling technologies have led to the introduction and adoption of smart conveyors. These systems employ the use of stock-keeping unit (SKU) numbers and other unique identifiers to automate the sorting, reordering, converging, and diverging of products on processing lines. By minimizing or eliminating the need for manual operator involvement, they enable facilities to identify, sort, and/or mark products with faster processing speeds and greater processing accuracy.
Sortation conveyors can be specified for use within a wide range of applications to suit the various production locations and environments. The Reko engineering team will follow either a SOW and/or a field onsite engineering evaluation. This will help in the selection process and in determining the design, construction materials, load capacity, speeds, range of production requirements, and ease of adjusting. We will discuss the plant’s operational goals for maintenance, cleaning, access, sanitation and support.
By employing conveyor sorting systems, owners and managers of industrial shipping facilities can improve the efficiency and accuracy of their operations. Additionally, they can lower their production costs and raise the satisfaction levels of their customers. However, integrating conveyor sorting systems with existing technology necessitates choosing the right type of system and features to match with the application and facility. For customers in the automotive, food, bakery, and health sciences industries requiring assistance selecting and integrating the right conveyor solution for their needs, Reko Automation is the ideal partner. We can often cross-pollinate technologies or proven ideas from other industries to the benefit of the clients.
