NATRIX SORTER – INTELLIGENT SORTER SYSTEM

ENERGY EFFICIENT 
PERFORMANT
FLEXIBLE

The powerful and energy-efficient TGW Sorter is suitable for different applications and industries. It is used for the fast and precise sorting of different load carrier types such as cartons, trays, totes, and soft packaging.

Thanks to the modular structure and the different performance levels, customized solutions can be implemented with the Natrix shoe sorter. These solutions are already employed in hundreds of customers' facilities around the world.

Natrix adds high quality and performance to a critical element in fulfillment center operations to ensure fastest delivery times.

1

Gapping unit

Highly dynamic gapping belts correct the position of the load carriers to achieve the target gap distance, adjusting for variable load carrier dimensions and absorbing system layout effects.

2

Channelizer

Im Mittel- und Hochleistungsbereich sorgt der Channelizer für Stabilität bei hohen Geschwindigkeiten. Bei der Konfiguration mit geringerer Leistung übernimmt der Channelizer die Zusammenführung.

3

Slugging lanes

Load carriers are accurately indexed using high performant servo drives to build the required slug length. In this process variable load carrier dimensions are measured and precisely positioned

4

Sawtooth merge

Operating with collision detection algorithms ensures high availability, which facilitates precise slug merging at high speed. A high performance belt conveyor is used in combination with specific belt material that reduces friction.

5

Recirculation

The sorter system is tuned to obtain high availability. In case of system events, the recirculation section employs several features, for example adjusting lane priorities when recirculation is high, or changing modes that reduce the number of load carriers on the system.

6

Control algorithms

Effective controls are the sorter brain, communicating to each component, feedforwarding commands that proactively manage the unified machine. E.g. changing throughput to match fulfilment centre utilization, prioritizing merge lanes, automatic stop-start in period of no activity with no effect on availability.

7

Divert lanes

Using the successful KingDrive® conveyor technology each Divert lane efficiently handles consecutive diverts, transitioning the load carrier ready for the next fulfilment operation.

8

Natrix Sorter

‘Parallel diverting’ and ‘Angled’ variants are available matching the machine to the performance requirement and load carrier types. Both variants can be installed with either a 22° divert angle providing a gently divert, or 30° divert angle to reduce equipment footprint.

SORT THE WAY YOU WANT

NATRIX FITS LIKE A GLOVE

With variants, the best application for your available footprint can be configured. Reach maximum throughput even with different load carrier types, dimensions, and weights.

  • 250 load carriers per minute: High-performance parallel sorter and sawtooth merge
  • 167 load carriers per minute: Angled sorter and sawtooth merge
  • 100 load carriers per minute: Angled sorter and Channelizer merge
ENERGY EFFICIENT

NEXT GENERATION OF GREEN TECHNOLOGY

  • Dynamic speed and throughput matched to operational demands
  • Full performance in peak, as energy efficient as possible in off-peak (seasonal demand, daily fluctuations)
  • Low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
