Goods-To-Person and Goods-To-Robot Preparation

Goods-to-person and goods-to-robot systems are especially suitable for logistic centres that have to combine high reactivity with high-level preparation quality. These compact and upgradeable systems enable significant preparation performance gains, a reduction in the picking storage surface area as well as in the associated operating costs.

The goods-to-person and goods-to-robot systems can be upgraded, in accordance with developments in the business, in a new or existing warehouse alongside other intralogistics processes.

 

ITEM PICKING

All order and product flows are synchronised in preparation stations so that retrieval and delivery operations can be carried out.

CASE PICKING

Full packages are temporarily kept in the X-PTS aisles before entering manual or automated palletisation stations depending on the departure times of the transporters and palletisation rules.

SPLIT-CASE PREPARATION AND PALLETISATION BUFFER

The prepared packages are stored in the X-PTS aisles before being removed from stock to enter manual or automated palletisation stations.

SHUTTLE SYSTEM - X-PTS 

Storage and retrieval technology (totes, trays and boxes) used to transfer products to the picking stations at very high speeds.
 

PICKING STATION 

The goods-to-person (GTP) picking station is efficient and ergonomic, and guarantees high preparation quality in the system.

Benefits

The high level of performance in order preparation means an increase in reactivity, an ability to deal with urgent orders more easily and to prepare orders as close as possible to the departure times of the transporters

Very high storage density that can reduce warehousing volume

Very high preparation quality

Ergonomic stations that are easy to use and provide operator comfort

X-PTS

X-PTS is a shuttle system for stocking/de-stocking lightweight loads. It comprises:

  • shuttles to move horizontally on each level
  • input and output lifts to move vertically.

X-PTS is a high-speed shuttle system, based on our patented design of dual cradle lifts that can perform cycles in an optimum manner by carrying four loads at once.

Advantages

High speed: capable of achieving a combination of 1100 inputs and outputs per hour

System operating in ambient temperature, refrigerated and freezing environments.

Totes, trays and boxes mixable in the same aisle

Single- or dual-storage format, up to six deep, of shelves that can be compartmentalised into several cells

Compact structure: low height of tier step and inter-load differences

Aisles divided into several isolated, secure areas so that work can continue without stopping in the adjacent areas

 

X-PTS Pick Station

The X-PTS Pick Station is an ergonomic preparation station, designed to maintain steady rates and meet activity peaks. It can be used at will in different modes and activities: picking, inventory, exclusion, restocking, etc.

 

Advantages

Very high preparation quality thanks to the one-to-one picking, from a single position for a single place container

Reduction in biomechanical and posture stress thanks to the sloping containers and easier validations

Intuitive HMIs that are quick to learn and provide operator comfort.

 

 

 

Buffer sequencer

 

The buffer sequencer is an autonomous sorting system which can process flows arriving in no particular order, transforming them into a sequence expected by a preparation station or palletisation robot.

The buffer sequencer consists of an input lift, different storage levels and an output lift.

 

Advantages

Elimination of sequencing constraints in upstream equipment

Delivery of sequence expected downstream depending on the different orders to be processed, the desire to take bulky products first, the established palletisation plan, etc.

Manual or automated stations supplied with more than 600 loads per hour
