The Sliding Shoe Sorter is a linear sorter supplied by GBI that handles small to large items up to 2,000 mm long (79”) and 1,000 mm wide (39”) at high rates of speed (up to three meters/second). The Sliding Shoe Sorter moves products smoothly, gently and quietly, at or below 72 dB and employs shoes with soft polyurethane cushioning with small gaps between out-feed and in-feed belts,. The modular component design is scalable, and may be expanded, or reconfigured to meet the customer’s changing requirements.
This sorter is perfect for cartons of diverse sizes due to its dynamic product handling by varying the amount of shoes needed for each article. In fact, the sorter can move cartons, totes, trays and parcels and can also sort to one or both sides of the sorter. Overall maintenance is minimal due to simple construction utilizing steel and aluminum components. Its “closed deck” construction allows the Sliding Shoe Sorter to run clean and without gaps.
This system is excellent for sorting to truck routes and for building large pallets in case quantities. Sliding shoe sorters are often used for “final sort” to shipping.
