Interroll presents new high-performance crossbelt sorter

Interroll presents new high-performance crossbelt sorter

With the global market launch of the new MX 025H crossbelt sorter, Interroll has extended its portfolio of automatic sorting solutions to include a new high-performance system capable of handling up to 20,000 conveyed goods per hour. This new solution also allows much heavier and larger goods to be sorted. As a result, even the most demanding users can now enjoy the performance and availability benefits offered by mechanically driven horizontal crossbelt sorters from Interroll.

The MX 025H, offers an increased conveying speed of up to 2.5 m/s compared to 1.8 m/s for the still available Interroll Crossbelt Sorter ST 6160. The new sorter thus enables throughput rates of up to 20,000 conveyed goods per hour. At the same time, the MX 025H high-performance crossbelt sorter is able to transport goods weighing up to 50 kg. In addition, the width of the carriers has been increased by 50%. This means an enormous gain in flexibility when sorting goods of different dimensions.

Interroll says maintenance for the MX 025H is extremely easy and inexpensive, for a number of reasons. First of all, the drive chain has been replaced with a rubber belt. This means there is no need for lubrication. Secondly, it is now much easier and faster to replace the belt. However, extensive tests indicate this will not need to happen for many years, even in the case of 24/7 operations. The carriers can also be replaced much faster, and wear parts are also less expensive; all this contributes to significantly lower maintenance costs – around 50% less than with a conventional crossbelt sorter, claims the company.

Thanks to the mechanical drive concept, the sorter operates extremely quietly – with noise levels below 67 dB(A) – even at the highest throughput rates. In addition to extensive load and endurance tests in the in-house test centre, the new sorter has already been in use for almost a year at selected customers’ sites.

Executive vice president and head of products and technology, Jens Strüwing, says: “With our entry into absolute high-performance sorting, system integrators can now offer users an innovative and at the same time proven technology range. Our unique, mechanical drive concept enables us to process an increasing number and variety of goods according to demand – with the highest reliability and economic advantages that are unparalleled in the world market.”

One important reason for this global success is the basic mechanical principle of Interroll’s sorter platform. Today, more than 400 sorters are already in use worldwide by industry leaders such as Amazon, DHL, FedEx, UPS, Hugo Boss, Inditex (Zara), Zalando, Swiss Post, Austrian Post and China Post. Unlike competing products, the number of electronic components in these sorters has been kept as low as possible. The unique design principle ensures maximum availability, very long lifetime, minimum operating costs as well as short payback periods.

Interroll crossbelt sorters operate on a direct drive principle, in which the drive units can be positioned flexibly. The entire drive system offers power efficiency rates of over 85%. It is designed redundantly so that if one drive unit fails, the sorting operation continues uninterrupted. Compared to electrical sorting systems operated with traditional linear motors, Interroll says energy savings of up to 50% can be achieved. At the heart of the sorter are the crossbelt carriers with patented mechanical drives. The modular sorter platform also includes innovative infeed conveyors and terminals that can be customized to meet the needs of each user.
