Best Picking Practices Improve Picking Labor Utilization
East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/20/2014 -- New robotic systems are being developed which moves up and down the front of two or three tiered horizontal carousels retrieving and discharging totes, boxes, or cases. Delivering inventory to a conveyor for routing to the dynamic batch workstations is useful because orders can be buffered until the operator requires that pick. Completed orders are automatically taken from the workstation and routed to the next workstation or zone for further processing and then sent back to the robotic system for storage until the next pick is required. There are numerous ways to accomplish integrated dynamic batch workstations to optimize order pickers time by automatically inducting and discharging orders.
