Model 700RF

Tilt Tray
Sorter

Application

Tilt Tray Sorters are probably the most versatile of all sorting machines. Aimed at larger and irregular shaped items, they provide an inherent facility for recirculation of items which differentiates them from many other sorting technologies. Above all they provide for very high levels of throughput with a highly controlled sorting action, designed to minimise damage to items which can be associated with mechanical handling processes.

Model 700RF Tilt Tray Sorter

The Model 700RF Tilt Tray Sorter represents the most advanced sorter available today. It uses an electrical tip action controlled via a radio frequency signalling system which permits unprecedented levels of control over the items to be handled. It also enables facilities to be provided which have not been feasible with previous generations of tilt tray sorter designs, for example, tray banking on curve sections.

When this sorter is coupled with state of the art dynamic induction units, developed by Daifuku Logan, a complete, capable and comprehensive package for sortation needs is provided.

General Description

The Model 700 Powered Tilt Tray Sorter consists of a series of linked carriages powered around the sorter track by specially tuned Linear Induction Motors (LIMs).

The carriages comprise of powered tilting units which support product-carrying trays. These trays are used for the transportation of products and can be energised to tilt to both sides of the machine at any software programme discharge position.

The tipping action of the tray is such that the rotational profile remains constant throughout the product weight range, without causing launching of the lightest product.

The tipping action is generated through the control of a specialised-braked geared motor unit, removing the need for mechanical latches, cams and switch devices. This contact-less approach removes the necessity for maintenance and setting up associated with other mechanical designs. The other main benefit of this approach is that the tipping profile is not affected by the linear speed for the sorter.

When a loaded tray arrives at the required discharge position, it is remotely signalled to tip by a Radio Frequency (RF) sub system. When the tip has been completed the on board controller is instructed to straighten the tray prior to the next induction point ready to accept the product.
