A patent has been awarded for TGW-ERMANCO'S WAVE Diverter. The WAVE Diverter greatly reduces the required gap between cartons; facilitating high throughput rates using narrow belt sortation, and eliminating the need for costly shoe sorters in the 100-200 cpm sortation range. In WAVE technology, each row of pop-up wheels operates independently, rising as the front edge of the carton approaches, and dropping as the back edge of the carton passes over it.
The WAVE Diverter is a component of TGW-ERMANCO'S NBS® TURBO® Sortation System. The controls and technologies which make up the TURBO System work together to provide optimum performance and the best value in the 100-200 cpm sortation range.
TURBO System features include:
o WAVE(TM) Diverter - uses patented WAVE technology to divert at high rates o TURBO Induction - manages gap rapidly with each belt powered by its own VFD o WAVE Aligner - positions cartons for "two-way" diverting while maintaining gap and rate o COMMANDER(TM) System Controls - operates the TURBO System with ideal efficiency and precision
