SI Systems has introduced a small-footprint, 16-channel A-frame at ProMat. The product is designed to supplement manual pick operations, says Jeffry H. Wetherell. It allows an order picker to replenish the A-frame channels between picks. It is ideal for fast movers, he said, allowing picks of 1,500 to 2,000 pieces per hour.
The product, called the SI Mighty Mac, is 53 inches long, operates on 110 volts, and sells for under $30,000. He expects customers would see a payback in less than six months.
