An ARB sorting conveyor can help to quickly, accurately and gently sort traffic into groups before delivering products to the appropriate area of a facility. In this post we delve a little deeper into the efficient system.

What Is an ARB Conveyor?

ARB is an abbreviation that stands for activated roller belt, an innovative type of conveyance solution pioneered by Intralox. The belt uses free spinning rollers to turn, merge and align products – as well as sorting them.

Computer aided design is employed to tailor an ARB based on the specific needs of an operation. The bespoke belts can help to increase efficiency and throughput while simultaneously reducing footprint and overall systems costs.


Reduced Footprint – an ARB sorting conveyor is a multi-functional machine that is able to carry out a number of jobs simultaneously. This versatility can help to reduce the complexity of a conveyor system, thereby dramatically cutting footprint.

Increased Throughput – high throughput is key factor for any operation. An ARB system can help to achieve high throughput by eliminating congestion related blockages, and by providing the most efficient route between two points.

Simplified Controls – ARB sortation solutions are at the cutting edge of food processing and manufacturing industry. Despite this, the systems are designed with the user in mind and, as such, feature simplified controls ensuring an excellent user experience.
