The RapidPick® System

Smarter, Faster, Ergonomic Order Fulfillment

Smarter, Faster, Ergonomic Order Fulfilment

It's all about presenting items to the picker in the desired sequence, enabling faster picking speed in a comfortable configuration: that’s smarter, faster, ergonomic order fulfillment.

Smarter: The operator stays in one place while items are delivered to the pick station in precise sequence — heavy items first, fragile items last, for lot control, by family group or in whatever sequence that business needs dictate. It's also smarter since RapidPick allows ultra-high pick accuracy as only one SKU is presented to the operator at a time. In addition, RapidPick workstations accommodate totes and/or cartons of different sizes to facilitate picking directly into the shipping container.

Modular pick station configurations include one pick position to one order position (1 to 1) or one pick position to multiple order positions (1 to multiple). 

Faster: The pick station design allows the highest possible worker productivity. With a one second tote exchange time, the operator doesn’t have to wait for the next item to be picked. Product for picking flows into the RapidPick station smoothly and consistently — that’s made possible by an automated inventory staging buffer called the Dematic Multishuttle™. This is the “engine” that supports high picking rates. 

Ergonomic: We designed the RapidPick workstation for sustained productivity and employee comfort. The operator only picks in the “golden zone.” There is no need to move hands above the shoulder or extend arms beyond a comfortable reach. The work platform is adjustable to accommodate operators of various heights. The operator screen can be adjusted for height and angle to minimise neck strain. Loads are automatically delivered to and removed from the workstation eliminating the need for operators to lift or push cartons and totes. The ergonomic design and simple, icon-driven operator screens allows RapidPick stations to meet Universal Access guidelines.
