Conveyor Sortation

Conveyor sortation systems help to automatically sort products along a conveyor into specific lanes or areas - passing items from in-feed conveyors to shipping lanes, packing areas, or onto pallets. Programmed based on SKUs, weights, and order sizes, conveyor sortation reduces the need for manual sorting and boosts both speed and accuracy on the manufacturing lines, packaging lanes, and distribution areas. As many businesses increase their product lines, and as e-Commerce dictates more variety in order sizes, conveyor sortation systems have become a staple in operations both large and small.
