IPTI Inc. introduces Pick-MAX Auto, a low-cost A-frame picking solution for high-volume applications. The Pick- MAX Auto system consists of multiple dispensers that hold a vertical stack of product to dispense onto a conveyor using an actuating mechanism. The system removes the bottom item from the vertical stack individually based on order requirements. Each dispenser is adjustable for a vast array of product sizes. Multiple dispensers can be assigned for higher-volume items, while a single dispenser can handle slower-moving items.
System controls direct dispensers based on the order of the totes that pass by the dispenser. An RFID tag on each tote stores the requirements for every item in the tote, eliminating complicated centralized controls. The result is high accuracy at a low cost. Depending upon the product profile, each Pick-MAX Auto A-frame can handle up to 1,200 orders per hour. Dispense speeds can be adjusted for softer handling of delicate items, and stack heights in the dispensers can reach up to six feet depending on product configuration.
The Pick-MAX Auto vertical stack design allows the dispensers to be replenished while the machine operates. Each dispenser is supplied with low-level and out-ofstock sensors as well as with a replenishment indicator light that directs replenishers to those dispensers most in need of product. The simplicity of the Pick-MAX Auto also means very low maintenance. Its plug-in-and-play design enables dispenser installation and change-out in just seconds.
