Regal Beloit Corp. showcased its new Modsort Trident three-way sortation system at Pack Expo. The Modsort Trident has a four-zone infeed that gaps a product, reads the package and sends it down a belt, where it then diverts left, right or straight on a 30-degree spur-curve to one of three sorting locations. A concept of Regal and a continuation of the company’s quiet Modsort technologies, the Modsort Trident is ideal as a secondary sortation station in a fulfillment center and works well with parcel post, eCommerce and warehouse distribution applications, the company says. The sortation system can accommodate as many as 50 cartons a minute on average, with a weight limit of 50 pounds. It utilizes a 34-inch-wide (between frame) by 66-inch-long triple-belt divert for polybags, boxes, flats and some types of totes. Designed to be mobile, the technology uses 24-volt DC power and requires only a simple power drop and Ethernet connection to a customer’s warehouse management solution. Other features of the Modsort Trident include frame mounted HMI operator control panel with pushbuttons for start/stop, reset, communications fault, and emergency stop; Allen-Bradley-based PLC controller/power panel and Allen-Bradley Stratix network switch; a compact Logix 5380 processor; and a digital/analog input/output backplane array.
