sortimat Clearliner™ Clean Room Handling

Product Announcement from ATS Automation


Standardization & Customization in One

Clearliner tray handlers are built with standardized modules—dramatically reducing lead times. These modules can also be customized to suit your unique needs.

All versions of Clearliner tray handlers are suitable for clean rooms of class 10,000 (ISO 7) or higher. Where necessary, they can be constructed for higher requirements of cleanliness. What’s more, they are easy to access, clean and maintain.

sortimat Clearliner handling technology is designed to meet the challenges of rapidly feeding parts that cannot be easily fed in bulk because they might become damaged or entangled. Built to handle large quantities, these machines offer pre-programmed sequences and quick change mechanisms for Part and Tray Grippers to quickly retool the Clearliner tray handler for smaller batches of different parts.

Trays or pallets can be replenished while the machine is in operation, without halting production. sortimat Clearliner handling technology is available in either a standard or a fast version. All versions are designed for visibility allowing you a clear view of all components and actions.

All versions are extremely compact and even the control cabinet is fully integrated. The fully automatic versions, CL 400 and CL 400 S sortimat Clearliners are equipped with in-feed and out-feed conveyor belts. Alternatively, a lower cost option is the CL 400 T or CL 400 TS which saves space by using trolleys or carts to feed tray stacks.
