Flexible and Efficient Fully Automated
Picking System for Reusable Containers
StackRunner is a fully automated picking system for products in reusable containers, typically used in the food industry (dairy products, produce, meat).
What customers say about StackRunner:
"Visitors who see our automatic picking system
are always impressed with the level of efficiency and the perfect integration of the different machines."
Benefits of the fully automated concept:
- Fully automated flow of goods from receiving to shipping
- Fast and accurate order fulfillment
- Ability to create customized product sequences on shipping load carriers
- Optimized space utilization thanks to compact design
- Easy access for cleaning
the StackRunner Concept Works:
Receiving: In receiving, single-SKU pallets with reusable containers are depalletized stack by stack. A gantry robot places the single-SKU stacks in the storage area.
Picking: For picking, gantry robots remove substacks from storage. The substacks, still assigned to several orders, are separated by item. In the robot cells (StarRobot) they are stacked onto shipping load carriers (pallets, rolling containers or rolling carts) in the desired sequence. The finished load carriers are then cross-docked in downstream supply chain hubs or delivered directly to stores.
