The BEUMER Group portfolio of Tilt-tray sortation systems includes the BEUMER Tilt Tray Sorter and the Crisplant LS-4000E Tilt-tray sorter. The Tilt-Tray Sorter is the basic building-block of the range. These mechanical tilting elements enable goods to be discharged on either side, in a guided, two-dimensional process. That means the item glides out of the tray without any 'catapult effect', and has a much lower speed when it leaves the tray than in other comparable systems. This enables large letters, small packages, parcels and any other sorted items to be transported safely and discharged exactly in the right place. In order to allow for high-troughput applications, two trays can be mounted side-by-side while travelling on the same carriage, effectively doubling the number of trays in the system and the sorter capacity. Each tray can be tilted individually; however, each tray can only be tilted to one side (left trays to left-hand chutes, right trays to righthand chutes). As a result, double density sorter systems typically utilize a pre-sortation to assign sort items to the appropriate induction area.
