Automatic order-picking system / pick-to-light
Sorting precedes the actual picking stage: the load units from which pick up is made are automatically sorted to fixed picking stations by means of a system of SLS shuttles moving along a closed-circuit route. Each picking island may be associated to one or more orders being filled.
Picking Islands with self-drive SLS shuttles:
A flexible solution thanks to the possibility of increasing workstations and quick lengthening of shuttle circuit.
Output may be increased by using more shuttles on the circuit.
Automatic balancing of the work load among the various picking stations
The SLS system also recovers shipping units and transfers them to a loading area.
