Three-Way Sortation System


Part of the Modsort suite of products, 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-deg. spur-curve to one of three sorting locations.


The Modsort Trident is a Regal concept and a continuation of its Modsort technologies, which is known for its quiet operation. Modsort technologies include the Modsort Station (individual transfer), Modsort Derivatives (with expanded sort capacity), and Flat Sorter Systems (with a complete mobile and expandable solution). The Modsort Trident three-way sortation system includes additional mechanical variations to this turnkey solution.


The Modsort Trident is ideal as a secondary sortation station in a fulfillment center and works well with parcel post, e-commerce, and warehouse distribution applications. The system can accommodate up to 50 cartons per minute on average, with a weight limit of 50 lb. It uses a 34-in. wide (between frame) x 66-in. long triple-belt divert for polybags, boxes, flats, and some types of totes. Modsort Trident technology uses 24V DC power and requires only a simple power drop and Ethernet connection to customer warehouse management solution. Designed to be mobile (the unit comes on heavy-duty casters) and can be redeployed if needed to another location.
