Batch Order Picking Work Station
The new UltraBatch™ dynamic batch order picking work station from Integrated Systems Design (ISD) creates continuous automated batch picking operations that improve operator throughput up to 33% and accuracy levels to 99.99%+ in new and existing fulfillment systems. The UltraBatch system automates the batch picking process by automatically inducting new orders and sending filled orders to the next work station without any operator actions. Software queues orders in logical sequence and commonality.
The operator simply follows the integrated pick-to-light system to place the correct item and quantity into the proper open order tote or box. All of the orders sitting in a batch no longer have to wait until the last item and order is completed to move to the next zone. This improves labor and accuracy levels, and improves the productivity of other picking zones, consolidation and shipping operations since they receive a more consistent workflow. The UltraBatch automated workstation can improve the picking throughput of each operator up to 33%, and when combined with an automated goods-to-man picking system, throughput can increase up to 600% and help extend order cut-off times. It can be integrated into all types of order picking systems including horizontal and vertical carousels, Vertical Lift Modules (VLMs), mini-loads, shuttle systems, robots and conveyor systems.
