Narrow Belt Sorter

This type of sortation system uses a series of narrow belts, each with its own take-up. High-friction rollers raise to grip and gently divert products at a 90-degree angle right or left, on-the-fly. It’s best used when your operation requires accurately sorted products or when handling a wide variety of product sizes, shapes, and weights.

Shoe Sorter

Also known as a sliding shoe sorter, this system uses a series of shoes to slide across the surface to push items off the sorter. It’s ideal suited for high-speed sortation of a variety of product sizes and shapes.


These are used to divert products from the main conveyor line, either manually or automatically. They’re best used when the rate of product flow is lower, and the product is sturdy enough to handle the pushing force.

Arm Diverts

Arm diverts are used to change the direction of a product in a conveyor system. They are best used when dealing with sturdy products that can handle the force of the divert.

UBT (Urethane Belt Transfers)

This system is designed to bridge the gap between adjoining conveyors and equipment. The UBT uses a pair of polyurethane belts to move items off the conveyor. They’re ideal for use in conveyor systems that require a high degree of coordination or precise positioning.

Plastic Belt Sorters

These systems use plastic belts and are ideal for sorting items based on size, weight, and shape. They’re best used in applications that require the gentle handling of items.

Sure Sort

This is a small item sorter that delivers and processes a wide variety of items safely and efficiently. It’s best used in operations that handle a wide range of product sizes, shapes, and weights.

Tray Sorters (Tilt and Pusher)

Tray sorters use a series of trays to carry items to their designated location. When the item reaches its destination, the tray either tilts or pushes the item off. They’re best used when items need to be sorted in a specific orientation or gentle handling is required.

Bombay Sortation

This system uses a series of flat carrier surfaces (flights) to convey the product to the appropriate divert station. It’s best used in high-speed transport applications where product stability is key.
