Due to their overwhelming success, needed modular, automated order fulfilment for fast, efficient order fulfilment.”

The modular shelf-to-person system optimises warehouse operations using mobile robots to transport shelves. In a region where fixed and cubic options have been the trend during recent years, the shelf-to-person installation handles goods of all sizes while removing the need for infrastructure investment, making it a flexible response to order fulfilment problems.

PopPick workstations use two retrieval arms and four presentation locations to present pickers with multiple, moveable 78-tote racks at one time, resulting in a throughput of 450 totes per hour. PopPick can store goods of all types and sizes; this is not limited to small pieces and improves ergonomics for workers while picking. It also takes up less space than traditional systems, so more stations can be used without adding facility space.
