BG Sorter CB

New Generation Cross-Belt Sorter

The BG Sorter CB introduces innovative features which increase the level of efficiency, throughput and flexibility for high-capacity automated sortation.

A new full cross belt, contactless energy supply and real-time wireless communications help to ensure the highest quality of sortation and an extended handling mix. These features allow almost all items to be handled through the automated system resulting in higher efficiency and later cut-off times for customers.

The BG Sorter CB minimises Product Life Cycle Costs (PLCCs) due to the reduced maintenance levels and operating costs delivered by its energy-efficient technologies. The system also contributes to the environmental sustainability and to an improved return on investment (ROI).
