Sortation Systems

ARB Sortation System Provides Gentle Sorting of Virtually Any Product in a Small Footprint

Using Activated Roller Belt™ (ARB™) technology, an Intralox sortation system provides gentle and precise sorting of items. Intralox ARB sorters are capable of sorting bi-directionally, at 30 degrees, and at 90 degrees. Because of the unique capabilities of ARB technology, Intralox sorting systems effectively handle a wide range of products within a small footprint. ARB sorters have been employed to handle cases, books, mail, totes, and polybags, and can sort virtually anything, from lightweight, letter-sized items to heavy pallet loads.

Benefits of ARB Sortation Systems:

  • All the benefits of patented ARB technology
  • Handle a wide range of product shapes, sizes, and types
  • Protect product quality with gentle handling
  • Accomodate close divert centers to maximize floor space
  • Feature minimal moving parts and only one drive per sorter, reducing maintenance

Ideal solution for...

  • Sorting with tight divert spacing
  • A single divert or a small number of diverts in a short footprint
  • High-speed bi-directional sorting at rates above 100 ppm (especially on narrow widths or tight divert centers)
  • Right angle sorting (single-sided) at rates above 60 ppm, depending on product size and weight
  • Sorting products longer than 4 ft. (1.2 meters) or shorter than 9 in. (225 mm); products weighing greater than 75 lb. (25 kg); or hard-to-handle products such as polybags
  • Handling products not ideal for sliding shoe sorters, narrow belt sorters, pivot wheel sorters and push sorters
  • Applications:
    • Right angle diverting to reject stations
    • Changing carton orientation during high-speed sorting
    • Sorting into mini-load AS/RS
    • Carton sequencing
    • Sorting into accumulation lines
