A Holistic Solution Across Different Storage Areas
The core of the new building is a highly automated order picking system, which was developed and installed by GEBHARDT and which replaces the labour-intensive manual order picking. Now the pickers all work within the shortest distance to the automatic conveyor system, which automatically transfers each carton or plastic container between the respective picking zones and ‑nally to the shipping area. The system has a maximum throughput of 720 containers or cartons per hour and requires far fewer personnel. It also delivers products from the block storage to replenish the picking racks as required.
The GEBHARDT conveyor technology with automatic 2 roller accumulation transports cartons and containers to the outgoing goods.
Infeed station for automatic box erection and labelling of carrier and destination information for picking.
At the replenishment infeed line, the carton is automatically cut and perforated and fed over 4 oors to a prede‑ned storage location.
