Shoe sorter

Our sliding shoe sorters are vertical sorting solutions which differentiate from other solutions by the high diversity of sortable products. Large variations in size and weight are no problem for the Flowsort high speed sorter.​​
Flowsort’s shoe sorter conveys products on a anodised aluminium sorter bed, the shoes slide across the aluminium profiles, diverting products to pre-selected destinations.
Different types of discharge lanes are available e.g. driven roller conveyors, non-driven roller conveyors or gravity chutes.

Flowsort a high performance, yet quiet operation ( 65 Dba ) and low- maintenance sortation system !

The Flowsort sorter is capable of delivering up to 18000 carton or cases per hour !

Controls

The Flowsort shoe sorter is developed in a modular way, which means that the maximal module length will be 2439mm long and will be delivered as a plug and play system ready to connect with an overarching control system, Siemens, Rockwell, Schneider etc.
All our cables are build into the aluminium profile covered by a cover profile.

Diverter unit

The diverter unit is the part in the shoe sorter which makes the divert of the products, controlled by a solenoid is the divert available in 20 and 30 degrees depending on the width of the slat

Depending on the product wide and required speed we can decide to use a 900mm or 1200mm width sorter with an divert angle of 20 or 30 degrees.

Infeed & outfeed

The infeed and outfeed are integrated in the complete sorter, all driven by one drive only.
The infeed is executed with a PVC high friction belt and is configurated to make gapping possible.
The drive section is integrated in the outfeed section, also the outfeed section is executed with a PVC high friction belt.

Shoe

Two-components injection moulded sliding shoe, outsides are with friction material to have a good grip on the product.
Flowsort introduces patented Smart Shoe technology.​
Real-Time Missing Shoe Detection is now a reality.
When shoes become dislodged from the conveyor slat timely detection of such an occurrence can be challenging, resulting in the mishandling of packages and/or system down time.

Flowsort’s Smart Shoe technology embeds a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag in each shoe – allowing for selective shoe identification and tracking.
Real-time missing shoe detection and divert confirmation are valuable examples of Smart Shoe in use.

Slat

Flowsort shoe sorter conveys products on a anodised aluminium sorter bed, the shoe slides across the aluminium profiles, diverting products to pre-selected destinations.
The complete conveyor deck is a “close deck system”.
The anodised aluminium profiles are developed with a “quick-assembly” system, the slats are easy to assemble and disassemble, in 1 minute you can remove the slat with just one hand tool, screwdriver, untighten 2 bolts with a quarter turn and click out the slat and click in a new one.
