It provides them with instructions, minimizing the risk of error and raising their throughput and orders are prepared according to the parts-to-picking strategy. The products are moved from the storage area to the pick stations by automatic handling equipment such as stacker cranes, conveyors, electrified monorails, or AMRs.
Automated Picking: the consolidation of new technologies allows for fully automated warehouse picking from start to finish. Automatic movements of goods with solutions like stacker cranes, conveyors, electrified monorails and Autonomous Mobile Robots are complemented with machinery arms that handle loads in a completely autonomous way.
