SJF Sweep Sorter Build

This is a very specialized sorter that is capable of sorting hard to sort packages and bagged product (aka Halloween & other Costumes). This was specifically designed for a Minnesota client to quickly process and fill incoming sales orders quickly while minimizing errors.

This system will allow the company to vastly increase the number of orders they can process as well accommodate future growth and product demand.

SJF can design, build, install a new customized sortation system complete with WMS and order fulfillment management software specifically designed to fit your needs.

Ermanco Sortation Conveyor Systems

These two sortation systems were just removed from a low use facility. These Ermanco sorters are very energy efficient and quiet because they utilize a series of narrow belts with individual take-ups. High-friction rollers raise to grip and gently divert products at a 90-degree angle right or left, on-the-fly. Continuous contact between belt and product provides maximum tracking accuracy, for optimum sort reliability. These NBS 90 sorters run at speeds of 300 feet per minute with sort rates up to 65 cases per minute (single side).

Installation is quick and easy and can generally be done in half the time of conventional sorters. The NBS 90 sorters are designed to provide less product tipping and skewing, and overall superior diverting characteristics. These sorters also inherenly have less noise, belt pull, and component wear than traditional sorters.
