A cross belt sorter is a special type of conveyor-based sorting system. Basically, it consists of a chain of independently operated short conveyor belts mounted transversely along a main track. The units are typically designed for light-weight, high-speed applications.
With the increasing number of parcels and luggage, higher travel and dispatch speeds are needed. That requires energy transfer systems that support these high speeds.
Contactless, inductive energy transfer allows higher travel speeds as well as higher mechanical tolerances than conventional systems. Also, it offers noiseless and maintenance-free energy transfer.
