The Hytrol ProSort MRT sorter, built for sorting mid-sized items, takes up significantly less space than other sortation equipment — up to 75 per cent less space. This, combined with its many best-in-class features and advantages, makes it a top choice for sorting items measuring eight-inches long and six inches wide, up to a maximum length of 28 inches and a maximum unit package weight of 75 pounds.
ProSort MRT has several key features that make it an attractive solution for sorting medium-sized items, particularly in facilities where space is a premium. For example, MRT has right-angle sortation. Rollers pop up between the narrow belts that are transporting items, and transfer the items at right angles to the sorter. This feature allows the sorter to have a smaller footprint, saving valuable plant floor space.
Another key feature is the sorter’s flexibility. It offers dual-sided transfer, which allows product to be transferred off either side of the conveyor. This allows it to be easily configured to specific customer applications, meeting their exact needs. It also allows close transfer locations to work within a facility’s constraints, and flexible sort locations, which means users can change their operation as often as needed.
The system allows high sort rates, maximizing throughput (an ideal feature for picking modules and order consolidation), and features the HyPower Distributed Cable System, which lowers field wiring expenses and simplifies changing locations.
All of these features make it an ideal solution for shipping operations where lane assignments by carrier, route or customer are critical to efficiency, and internal routing processes where kitting, order consolidation or zone routing streamline order flow.
