Achieving the goal
The tailor-made suit for each product
A "station" of the conveyor system is allocated to each work area. The worker picks all positions that are stored there. The conveyor system then transports the order totes to the other stations in order for the order to be completed.
In the goods-out area, the filled totes are automatically sorted according to the receivers.
The 9-aisle highbay warehouse is divided into three areas based on the article properties:
A speciality here is the stacker cranes that used in automatic and manual operations. Incoming goods are normally stored manually, partial removal for oerder picking is done while manually operating the stacker crane.
The operating stati of the conveyor system and stacker cranes are shown on a computer screen. Any malfunctions are thereby quickly recognised, localised and eliminated. The control concept for the conveyor systems and stacker cranes was executed by Hörmann Logistik.
As already mentioned, order picking using partial removals works on the principle of "man to goods". Information for the picker is sent to the stacker crane by data transmission. The worker travels to the indicated location and places the required quantity into the totes carried along. The filled totes are combined based on receiver and consolidated.
