Automatic Miniload Warehouses

For a wide range of small parts with high turnover rates we realize customized automatic miniload warehouses (AKL) with all-inclusive conveyor system, picking spots, shipment buffer etc. 
Rack serving can be made with S/R machines and shuttle systems for picking “goods-to-man”, “man-to-goods” or combinations thereof, depending on individual requirements.
The main focus is placed on ergonomic delivery to the order picker to achieve high picking performance and low error rates. 
Several state-of-the-art technologies like “pick-by-light”, “put-to-light”, “pick-by-voice”, handheld terminals and PC-terminals including Hi LIS_WMS online interfaces to different parcel services including label printing serve to support the order picker for best performance.
