Sorters

Tilt-Tray/Cross-Belt Sorters utilize LSM technology.

Featuring modular design that promotes system flexibility, LS-4000E tilt-tray and LS-4000CB cross-belt sorters respectively consume 2.4 and 2.7 kW/hr (typ). This can be accomplished because integrated linear synchronous motor (LSM) drive generates propulsive force via electromagnetic energy, minimizing energy consumption and noise levels while increasing speed and positioning accuracy.
