The new sorter can move up to 14,000 unit loads per hour with goods weighing up to 35 kg.

Designed primarily for courier and parcel service providers, e-commerce providers and logistics service providers, the sorters handle a high variety of goods in a space-saving, gentle and energy-efficient manner via a single technical infrastructure with a high number of end points.

The new MX018V Vertical Crossbelt Sorter replaces the previous ST6130 Vertical Crossbelt Sorter. Conveying speed has been increased to up to 1.8 m/s compared to 1.6 m/s. In addition, the maximum extension length has been increased from 80 metres to 180 metres.

The new sorter can move up to 14,000 unit loads per hour with goods weighing up to 35 kg. The sorter handles a wide variety of different sorted goods – from cartons, parcels, maxi letters, and mailing bags to polybags and more.

The use of energy-efficient geared motors means lower energy requirements compared to conventional sorter drives.

The system can be seamlessly adapted to user-specific requirements thanks to its modular expandability.

Today, around 500 sorters from Interroll are already in use worldwide at companies such as Amazon, DHL, FedEx, UPS, Hugo Boss, Inditex (ZARA), Zalando, Swiss Post, Austrian Post and China Post. An important reason for this success is the basic mechanical principle of these automatic sorting systems: The number of electronic components in Interroll’s sorter solutions has been kept as low as possible by design. This ensures uptime, very long service lives, minimal operating costs and short payback times.
