Industrial Conveying Australia, in conjunction with FKI Logistex, has brought the UniSort LBS Linear Belt Sorter to Australia.
The UniSort LBS makes linear belt sorting technology feasible for items that would otherwise have to be handled in a more labour intensive manner.
Utilising proven UniSort technology, the LBS is a gentle non-impact diverting, fully configurable straight line Linear Belt Sorter.
Designed with almost undetectable gaps between its slats, UniSort LBS carries products that would normally be unsuited to the normal linear belt sorter with mechanical sliding pushers. Odd and irregular packages are both carried and diverted easily.
Each slat contains a flat traversing belt that drives items off the sorter bed at the appropriate divert station.
Electric divert switches interrupt the track at predetermined points releasing the relevant belts to divert the required package.
Operable over a wide range of speeds, and configurable to numerous layouts, the UniSort LBS is designed to be integrated with FKI Logistex ancillary sortation equipment including a range of exit conveyor options.
Variable specifications include: standard widths of 560mm, 710mm, and 865mm, as well as custom widths and diversion angles of 20° and 30°.
Operating speeds of 1.3m/s to 3m/s at 0.25m/s intervals are attainable with minimum noise level.
The controls system can be either PLC or PC-Based depending upon the customers existing system(s).
