Better, by design!
Real-Time Missing Shoe and Missing Pin detection is now a reality. Smart Shoe/Smart Pin technology embeds a RFID tag in each sorter shoe and pin. This means that each shoe can be uniquely identified, monitored and controlled by an RFID reader and each pin can also be uniquely identified and monitored.
Vertigate Diverts replace traditional horizontal diverts with a block that moves vertically to direct the shoe on the conveyor. This patented technology eliminates pin deadheading, which increases accuracy and reduces downtown.
Our sorters are constructed with extruded aluminum upper and lower rails, slats, and raceway covers. We utilize a honeycomb design to ensure maximum strength while maintaining light weight for installation.
The unique design of our upper rail offers a dedicated raceway for controls and network cabling. This feature significantly reduces installation time and cost, because a dedicated electrician is only needed to make the final connections between each section and establish power to the sorter.
All of our components are pre-tested and pre-assembled to reduce installation time and cost. Sorters are available for postal in 7-foot sections, for parcel in 8-foot sections, and customizable up to 12 foot sections.
Our side guards are designed for easy removal during maintenance to access components, controls, and cleanout pans. Vacuum openings on the side guards are optional. Watch the video to see just how easy it is to remove and replace side guards.
All you need in your Aegis maintenance toolkit is a regular bladed screwdriver and a 1⁄2 inch wrench, socket, and ratchet. That's it. With these tools you can easily remove slats with the shoe for quick replacement or maintenance. An additional time-saving feature is the ability to install slats with shoes in any position.
