IPTI introduces Pick-MAX Auto, an A-Frame picking system. Pick-MAX Auto is suited for high-volume picking applications and consists of multiple dispensers that hold vertical stacks of products. Items are dispensed by removing the bottom item from the vertical stack.
Each dispenser is adjustable for a vast array of product sizes and speeds of up to 1,200 orders per hour, depending on order profile. For higher-volume items, multiple dispensers are assigned to each item, while slower-moving items are assigned single dispensers. System controls direct dispensers to actuate based on the order totes that pass beneath them.
Each tote incorporates an RFID tag that stores the requirements for every item in the tote, eliminating the need for complicated centralized controls. Each pick is confirmed via integrated sensors. The result is 100 percent accuracy in picking orders at a low cost, according to the company.
The vertical stack design allows the dispensers to be replenished while the machine operates. Each dispenser is supplied with low-level and out-of-stock sensors.
