Dematic has extended the functionality of its RapidPick System, a goods-to-person order fulfillment solution for piece-pick applications.
RapidPick consists of a workstation that automatically brings containers of SKUs to the operator so that the operator can perform order-fulfillment tasks. The latest version of RapidPick now allows the operator to pick and put items from that "donor container" into multiple order containers. The initial release of RapidPick only allows workers to pick from one donor tote into one order tote. Typical configurations include putting product into six, 12, or 24 containers at a time, for example.
Additionally, the RapidPick System can now handle cartons in addition to totes. Similarly, the inventory-staging engine that supports the RapidPick station with inventory can now accommodate a variety of load types. The RapidPick System is typically supplied with SKU totes from the Dematic Multishuttle or Dematic RapidStore sub-system. Both the Multishuttle and RapidStore staging buffer can accommodate a variety of load sizes and types.
