Witron unveils automated logistic system

Warehouse logistics company Witron has unveiled its new automated logistic system. The Ergonomic-Dynamic Picking System (E-DPS) which can pick 1,000 order lines per module, per hour. The E-DPS boasts a high picking performance and optimum ergonomics, offers simple 1:1 picking from a sitting position with an automated confirm system. Witron explains: “The basic design of an E-DPS module consists of a multi-aisle automated small parts warehouse, with a racking construction which integrates storage, replenishment and consolidation functions.

What is special about the system is that highly dynamic vehicles – known as PMLs – operate in up to three tiers within the middle aisle to supply the order picking stations with goods.” UK branch manager Karl Hogen says: “With E-DPS we offer a system solution that enables a pick performance of of up to 1,000 order lines per hour per integrated module which sets a milestone within picking ergonomics.”

Other new Witron systems announced include the Order Picking Machine, which offers a fully automated case picking process and a Dynamic Picking System that allows for both static and dynamic picking flow channels.

Witron claims that the Dynamic Picking System can reduce pick front and the pick path by up to 75%.
