Parcel and Mail Handling
Parcel and Mail handling conveyors take into account the unique handling requirements for envelopes, slick parcel type packages and flat cartons. Belted conveyor systems are most commonly applied as they can provide bulk type handling. Downstream, other types of automation equipment can singulate and orient these items to permit automated sortation into bins, chutes, or to trailer loaders. Belted systems can also be designed to create accumulation buffers to space apart, gap, and to create “buffer capacity” between varying production processes to allow a consistent flow between the origination point and the final output of a material handling system.
