Dematic has
launched a solution to allow ergonomic split case picking stations capable of increasing operator productivity rates to over 1000 items per hour.

RapidPick comprises the innovative configuration of picking stations, which can be set up to process multiple orders concurrently.

They are tailored to match operators’ individual requirements, including height adjustable operator platforms and work tables.

Height and rake adjustable display screens provide simple step-by-step management of the picking process.

The high-resolution screen displays simple, easily understood symbols for order volumes, along with photos of the products to be picked, facilitating fast, accurate and safe order picking.

Check weighing can also be integrated to further improve accuracy.

With Dematic’s RapidPick, order fulfilment becomes just like an assembly line, with the stock for orders arriving at precisely the right time and in the correct sequence to fulfil orders as efficiently as possible.

Totes containing stock for orders are retrieved from an automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) and transported by conveyors to the workstations.

As they enter the workstation, the totes are scanned and a monitor indicates the pick quantity for the tote and order.

For picking stations configured to process multiple orders at a time, Pick to Light (PTL) displays indicate the location and quantity of items required for each of the orders being processed concurrently.

The workstation operator picks the indicated quantity and puts the items into the relevant shipping cartons.

When the required quantity of stock has been removed from the tote, the operator is informed that picking for that item is complete.

When the operator releases the tote, it will be automatically transported to the next workstation requiring that item, or be returned to the ASRS if no further goods are required.
