E-commerce logistics is a highly competitive industry that requires efficient and reliable systems to keep up with the increasing demand for fast and accurate deliveries. Pteris Global, a global integrated solution provider, has been leading the way in delivering customized system solutions for e-commerce logistics, express logistics, custom warehouse automation, airport logistics and digital factories since 1979.
One of Pteris Global’s most innovative solutions is the cross belt sorter, a technology that has revolutionized the e-commerce logistics system by streamlining the sorting process and enhancing overall productivity. The cross belt sorter is a system where multiple carriers connected in series move around a closed loop, guided by an infeed station and a scanning mechanism that determines the final destination of each item. Once the destination is reached, the belt conveyor on the carrier unloads the goods to the corresponding chute.
The Advantages of Cross Belt Sorter in E-commerce Logistics System
The advantages of the cross belt sorter are numerous. First and foremost, it allows for a high degree of efficiency, with a capacity of up to 24,000 items per hour and a speed of up to 3m/sec. Additionally, the sorter can handle items of varying sizes and weights, from as small as 100502mm to as large as 15080800mm and as light as 20g to as heavy as 80kg. Lastly, the tilt angle of the sorter can be adjusted to up to 15°, ensuring that items are sorted quickly and accurately.
