Knapp targets e-commerce with picking station range

Knapp has launched a series of application-specific, user-friendly workstations named “Pick-it-Easy” designed to meet the needs of the e-commerce, grocery and fashion sectors.

The workstations use pick-to-light and put-to-light technology. A touch screen at the centre of the workstation allows the operator to keep his or her head straight and avoid neck strain, with every process being identified at a single glance and noise also controlled. The TÜV- and CE-certified Pick-it-Easy workstations allow error-free preparation of up to 1,000 orders per man-hour.

Pick-it-Easy Shop is designed to meet the needs of the e-commerce sector and is suitable for goods that are placed into order containers or cartons of different heights.

Pick-it-Easy Tray addresses the traditional method of manual picking in food wholesale – where products are picked from source pallets at floor level and placed into roll containers or onto pallets. The workstation is designed to minimise strenuous tasks by supplying trays at an ergonomic height for operators.

Pick-it-Easy Pack brings together ergonomic packing station design with technologies for hanging garments and flat-pack fashions. It facilitates consolidation of partial orders, automatic disposal of empty hangers and containers and visual guidance/RFID for sequenced supply.
