    Technical Details:

    APOLLO Sliding Shoe Sorter is modularly designed, which composed of a bed of uniform slats that creates a virtual flat conveyor, ideal for conveying a variety of  parcels. Each slat has a sliding “shoe” attached. Shoes are aligned to one side of the parcel.  When a parcel reaches its assigned sorting exit, several shoes are electronically activated to slide in the intended direction, guiding the parcel to its destination. The precision by shoes controlled allow them to gently push parcels toward a lane or chute in a fluid diagonal movement. This enables precise, safe, gentle handling at high rates of speed.


    Sliding Shoe Sorter can be used to sort a variety of product size, shape and weight. For fragile or easily damaged products, a smooth and gentle movement is required from the sorter to exit,  then Sliding Shoe Sorter is an ideal option, unilateral or bilateral sorting both available,  APOLLO can customize sorting direction according to the special system requirements.

    Sliding Shoe Sorter can transport products smoothly, gently, quietly, with noise levels equal to or below 75dB. The use of soft polyurethane creats a small gap between the infeed and outfeed conveyor. Modular component design is adjustable and can be extended or reconfigured to meet changing requirements of user.

    APOLLO Sliding Shoe Sorter can handle a wide range and size of cartons by varying the amount of shoes.  In fact, the sorter can sort cartons, totes, trays and parcels, also can sort to one or both sides of the line. Overall maintenance is minimal due to simple construction of steel and aluminum components. The closed deck construction allows the sorter to run clean and without gaps.
