Containers from the News Screen and Polishing screen are directed to the container Line. The Cross Belt Magnet is the first sorting machine that the materials pass through.
The Cross Belt Magnet is a powerful magnet that hovers and rotates over the Container Line belt. It runs perpendicular to the Container Line belt and pulls steel/tin cans up from the Container Line and drops them into a holding bunker on the other side of the Container Line. It does not matter if the cans have labels, the magnet is powerful enough to pull the cans out very efficiently.
After the Cross Belt Magnet, the containers left on the Container Line head through a long line of manual sorters.
