Solving Challenging Sortation Problems:

StreamTech Engineering has extensive experience in implementing complex sortation installations for a wide variety of clients. Utilizing a combination of both our sortation hardware, and the StreamTech WCS software, we can provide very cost-effective, user-configurable sortation systems for a wide variety of applications.

SORTATION TECHNOLOGIES:

MODSORT®

Omni-Directional Sortation

Modsort provides an all-electric solution to handling a wide variety of form factors, in a compact footprint.

  • Motorized Drive Rollers (MDR) and controls that employ run-on-demand technology
  • 24-volt DC motor and controls that allow flexibility in wiring and control
  • The ability to divert exceptionally small packages and boxes
  • No pneumatics, lifts or Z-direction position feedback devices are needed
  • Safe, energy-efficient, quiet and low-maintenance operation

TGW UBT Pop-Up Belt Conveyor Sortation

Urethane Belt Transfer

SINGLE OR BI-DIRECTIONAL SORTATION

Transfers are used to merge and/or divert product onto and from roller conveyors especially MDR and lineshaft conveyors. Pick Zone Modules (PZM) are a special high speed adaptation of transfers offering speeds up to 30-40 cases per minute. Transfers are typically accomplished on urethane belts or wheels and can be an a shallow angle or a full right-angle 90 degrees. Transfers are engineered to prevent “rolling off” of the belts at higher speeds. For MDR transfers, the drive cards are all pre-mounted, allowing for ease of installation and control.

  • Bi-Directional Transfers available
  • Design protects urethane bands from “rolling”
  • Side wings on PZM have wheels for fast transfer
  • Pre-wired and plumbed for easy installation
  • Induction conveyors available
  • Integrates with Lineshaft and IntelliROL product lines

POLYSORT

Bi-Directional Sortation of Polybags and "Non-Sortables"

The NBS90 PolySort delivers great value for sortation of mixed polybag and carton handling. Design enhancements prevent polybags from sagging between the belts while high-friction natural rubber transfer rollers provide maximum grab on slippery polybags. Individual, automatic, pneumatic, belt take-ups provide even belt tension on each individual belt and extra high and low transfer lifts with guides to keep polybags from snagging.

Capable of belt speeds up to 300 feet per minute and can be used with an extreme range of mixed poly and Jiffy envelopes, and products, including small parcels and packages from 2 ounce to 40 pounds..

  • Up to 50 cpm
  • Polybags, flats, envelopes and cartons
  • Speeds up to 300 fpm
  • Minimum product size from 4″ x 4″ x 2oz.
  • Maximum product size up to 24″ x 28″ x 40 lbs.

TGW Narrow Belt Conveyor Sortation

NARROW BELT

30° Single or 90° Bi-Directional Sortation

TGW invented and patented the Narrow Belt sorter and today’s improvements help keep it above and beyond competitive models.  Products on the moving belt have zero relative motion, enhancing accuracy.  Each carrying belt has its own takeup, to provide for long life and low maintenance.  Both right-angle and oblique style diverts are available, as shown below on a test conveyor.  An open design allows for debris to fall through, enhancing cleanliness.  Much lower noise and maintenance requirements than for sliding-shoe style sorters.

For very high speed applications, the patented “Wave” technology (available at a reasonable price) allows for dynamic gapping between products and as a result, much higher throughputs, even at moderate speeds.  Small-item versions are especially attractive for e-commerce applications.

  • Up to 65 cpm (NBS90) 100 cpm (NBS30), 170 cpm (NBS30-Wave)
  • Small item version available, NBS90SP down to 4″ x 4″ product
  • Speeds up to 450 fpm
  • Maximum lengths up to 200 ft.
  • Maximum product size up to 75 lb.

CUSTOM SORTATION

OTHER SORTATION OPTIONS

Sortation does not have to be complicated. There are a wide variety of ways to handle sortation of your packages. It all depends upon the type of item, how specific the alignment needs to be, and why it’s being re-directed.

StreamTech can even offer home-grown sortation solutions if the application is right.
