The SSL-001 compressed air driven multiple sorting stations are always used where the sorting or classification process must be implemented at extremely high speeds. In contrast to the conventional sorting devices (one-way stroke cycle), the sorting speed can be increased by up to 100%. The sorting station is installed in conjunction with a control process (gravimetric / visual) within a production line and serves to remove faulty products or to classify products, such as:
- Open or closed cartons
- Tubular bags
The special design of the station enables in particular the secure removal of extremely flat or unstable products such as newspapers. In contrast to the conventional sorting devices with pushers, incorrect sorting through the product “overflowing” is impossible with the SSL-001 stations.
The SSL-001 sorting station is equipped with a double ejection system. In contrast to the conventional sorting devices where the stroke cylinder returns to its starting position after having ejected a product, with the SSL-001 the pushing cylinder remains in its current position and “waits” for the next switching signal, only returning to its original position with the next ejection. Avoiding this “empty stroke” increases the sorting speed by up to 100%.
