The solution combines the person-to-goods with the zone-to-zone approach. It consists of individual subsystems which are interconnected intelligently through software in order to create efficient warehouse processes.
Storing: Vectura stacker cranes are used to automatically replenish the goods along the picking aisles, servicing multiple aisle levels.
Transporting/picking: CaddyPicks automatically transport the order units through the picking aisles. To ensure maximum picking accuracy, the order item is displayed on a screen and highlighted by an LED dot on the floor. A scale integrated into each CaddyPick validates the picking quantity and reports an error if discrepancies occur. For employees, the benefits provided by the CaddyPick concept include shorter walking distances, a team approach and more comfortable working conditions.
In addition, CaddyPicks can accommodate empty pallets and packing materials, which are automatically removed at designated unloading stations and then disposed of.
