The new UltraBatch™ single and multiple line order processing work station allows organizations to increase operator throughput by up to 1/3, increasing accuracy and matching order profiles automatically. The UltraBatch work station can be integrated and configured to work with manual, semi-manual and fully automated goods-to-person inventory storage systems. In goods-to-person systems the work station is configured so SKUs/inventory is automatically presented to the operator at an ergonomic height (blue totes in the attached photo). Simultaneously totes or shipping containers are automatically staged at thigh height for filling of orders (red totes in the attached photo). Totes may be divided to support multiple orders or SKUs if cube allows. Integrated software presents the description, part number and photo of each item to be picked to assure accuracy. The screen also tells the operator how many items must be picked. The integrated pick to light displays tell the operator where to place the picked items and the quantity for each location. For operations with a high concentration of single line orders, a consolidation process is employed. One ‘Put’ location is dedicated to single line orders. Each product tote is evaluated for opportunity single line picks when presented for other picks. If required the system will direct the operator to pick any single line order items from each tote as it is at the station for other picks. When a single line order tote is complete it is automatically released and routed to a deconsolidation / packing station. In fact, the entire system inducts, releases and introduces new totes and shipping containers automatically. The operator simply pushes a task complete button after each transaction is complete and lets the system do the rest. Highly efficient UltraBatch work stations are designed and implemented to match the inbound flow of goods. The compact […]
