Cinram hub gets a voice

Cinram Logistics UK, distributor of entertainment media, has rolled out a voice-directed picking (VDP) system from Knapp UK at its site in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.

Ten VDP terminals have been supplied for the picking of fast-moving lines from pallets, (such as new DVD releases of top films), as well as for slow-moving and bulky articles from static shelving.

Knapp has upgraded both the hardware and software at the distribution centre in a move to help boost capacity.

The new equipment includes a new KiSoft Klass-X WCS, a PLC upgrade from Siemens S5 to S7 and modernisation of the pick-to-light system, including replacement of all 8,456 displays with the latest technology.

Knapp’s VDP software KISoft VOICE features multi-language options.
