Company: Multi-Conveyor LLC
Equipment Snapshot: Multi-Conveyor (Winneconne, WI) recently integrated the ModSort technology by System Plast, incorporated into several conveyor systems as explained in this brief video.
The ModSort is driven by MDR technology, designed to transfer, sort, divert, left justify, right justify and it works with all shapes and sizes. The key features of the ModSort by System Plast include easy to integrate, it's programmable, virtually no noise, low voltage and it's safe.
The ModSort uses a System Plast roller-top belt with spheres on 1” centers that provide the capability of omnidirectional control of products being transported. The roller top belt is powered by a 24 VDC motorized driven roller in direction of travel, while a divert belt with similar drive is located below the spheres and runs perpendicular to the top belt in either direction. The result is the ability to combine the two belt motions to create a divert on the fly for the product at a designated vector angle left or right, or if the roller top belt is stopped the product can be diverted at 90 degrees. Modsort and System Plast are trademarks of Regal Beloit Corporation.
Multi-Conveyor incorporates these licensed, certified, and/or officially trained roller belt technologies on its equipment. The company brings the benefits of modular plastics to complex package handling processes like sorting, merging, and aligning even small items. The result is a simplified, safer, cost-effective solution for product orientation and control.
