Tilt tray to straight chutes

Flared Straight

This photograph shows a line of straight chutes interfacing with a "Tilt Tray Sorter".

The chutes are flared to one side, so that the parcels enter the chutes from the flared side, allowing the transverse momentum of the sorter to propel them across the chute towards the main straight, as they are tipped from the trays.

These chutes were manufactured in three main parts, and exit onto gravity roller conveyors.
