The use of Automatic Picking systems in warehouses is becoming more and more crucial in relieving the operators from heavy and repetitive tasks. By acting on the removal of pallets, single and layered packages, the staff intervention is reduced and the quality control is more and more precise and accurate.
Beta 80’s Automatic Picking module (PAU) is included with Runner and is able to control, coordinate and synchronize systems for the automatic stockage of pallets, destruction systems and package singularization systems. This makes possible to get a controlled and synchronized sequence for the creation of the clients’ order.
For each order line to be prepared in the automatic picking system and based on the properties of the item, the PAU module calculates the portion to be shipped in layers and in a single package.
Through the registry it is possible to determine whether layered pickings can be managed rather than single-necked pickings, and/or those in vertical warehouses.
Based on these data and according to the quantities to sort, the PAU method anticipates the preparation phase so that the loading on vehicles can happen faster. Also, the module automatically starts refilling procedures towards the central warehouses.
Our Automatic Picking system includes several components: an internal pallet entry line from the automatic warehouse; a film cutting station; layer and mixed package de-palletizing/palletizing robots; systems for the transport of pallets; automatic pallet/layer warehouse and/or one for single packages; systems for the transport of single packages; wells for creating mixed packages pallets; vertical warehouses; shipping, labelling and weighing line for shipping; manual warehouse for out-of-shape or non-manageable items in automatic picking.
