Claudio Carnino, head of sales and country speaker Interroll Italia: “Faster, more flexible and even quieter! With the global market launch of the new High-Performance Crossbelt Sorter MX 025H Crossbelt Sorter, Interroll extends its innovative 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 allows the sorting of much heavier and larger goods than previous sorters. The new High-Performance Crossbelt Sorter MX 025H, offers an increased conveying speed of up to 2.5 m/s compared to 1.8 m/s (5.9 ft/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 and at the same time is able to transport goods weighing up to 50 kg. The carrier width has been increased by an impressive 50 percent. This means an enormous gain in flexibility when sorting goods of different dimensions.
Maintenance for the new Interroll high performance crossbelt sorter is extremely easy and inexpensive. The drive chain has been replaced with a rubber belt so there is no need for lubrication. Secondly, it is now much easier and faster to replace the belt, even if extensive tests indicate this will not need to happen for many years, even in the case of 24/7 operations. The carriers can be replaced much faster, wear parts are less expensive so to significantly lower maintenance costs to around 50% less than with a conventional Crossbelt Sorter.
Thanks to the mechanical drive concept, the sorter operates extremely quietly, i.e. below 67 dB(A), even at the highest throughput rates. Claudio Carnino stated: “In addition to extensive load and endurance tests in the in-house test center, the new sorter has already been in use for almost a year at selected customers’ sites.”
Over 400 Interroll automatic sorting systems already in use worldwide
“With our entry into absolute high-performance sorting, system integrators can now offer users an innovative and at the same time proven technology range,” explains Claudio Carnino.
Interroll unique mechanical drive concept enables to process an increasing number and variety of goods according to demand, with the highest reliability and economic advantages unparalleled in the world market.
One of the most important reason for this global success is the basic mechanical principle of Interroll 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 other 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.
Up to 50% energy saved
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 percent. Claudio Carnino underlines that “the system 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, energy savings of up to 50 percent 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 customer.
