Benefits of a layer picking system
If 100 to 250 cases can be completed per hour in a manual process, the layer pick operation will process in excess of 1000 cases in the same time frame.
Eliminates bending, reaching, and lifting
Rather than manually picking cases and placing them on pallets, the operator now stays on their forklift and lets the machine do the heavy lifting.
FIFO inventory rotation
Like all gravity flow systems, the first pallet loaded is the first one picked. This ensures first-in first-out (FIFO) stock rotation.
Efficiently replenish inventory
Since the layer pick aisles are separate from the replenishment aisles, pick paths are unimpeded by forklifts restocking the pallet flow lanes.
Layer picking is a cost effective way to improve your efficiency with a much shorter ROI than a fully automated system.
Lane depths can be configured from 1 pallet deep to up to 5 allowing for a wide variety of inventory requirements.
