Patent for Astec Switch Sorter

2-Apr 2014 - News

The Astec High Speed Switch Sorter Unit has received a Patent for its unique design.

The design has been well proven over recent years with many installations on sortation systems throughout the UK.  

This modular high speed switch sorter from Astec provides a new dimension in integrated system design, offering maximum versatility with bi-directional (left/right) sortation.

The Patent relates to the design requiring no tools to change the drive bands.

Typically to change all 64 drive bands on a unit would take approximately 1 hour using no tools by an unskilled operator saving considerable time.
