High speed sliding tray conveyors
In this machine, the transport element carries a flat tray divided into two equal parts. When the load reaches the pick-off point, both halves of the tray open and the load falls into a chute or container located under the sorter.
These conveyors are usually cheaper than tilting tray and cross belt conveyors, but they are the least productive.
Machines with sliding trays can only carry small loads. But the big advantage of the latter is that they can be placed in a narrow room, since the containers for the distributed items are located under the sorting machine.
