Pick Carts

Ideal for split-case and small item applications

Pick Carts are a good solution for operations with a large number of SKUs that are small in size, and have a relatively low pick rate per SKU. Each of these rolling carts is custom designed to hold multiple containers. Each container holds a different order, so operators can batch pick multiple orders on a single trip through the warehouse. The Pick Cart system is managed using Dematic PickDirector software, and the PickDirector software communicates to each Pick Cart in the system using a wireless LAN.

Voice Directed Pick Cart
 Voice Directed Pick Carts

The voice headset uses audible commands to prompt the operator how many products to “put” in each container. The operator then verbally confirms the correct location.

 

The Pick Cart mechanical configuration is custom made to meet the needs of your specific application and can be designed to hold bins, totes, boxes, or other containers.

Light Directed Pick Cart

A display on the Pick Cart directs the operator to picking locations in a logical sequence. The operator confirms the correct location using an onboard scanner. Light directed slot displays on the cart show how many products to “put” in each container.

 

To confirm the picks for each container, the operator presses a button on the slot display. The Pick Cart mechanical configuration is custom made to meet the needs of your specific application and can be designed to hold bins, totes, boxes, or other containers.

Cluster Picking

Cluster picking increases operator efficiency by putting several orders onto the cart so the operator only has to walk the pick face once per group of orders. This works particularly well for products that are small, because the carts can then take a larger number of orders simultaneously.

RF Terminals & Voice Picking
 RF Terminals and Voice Picking

RF terminals and pick by voice technologies work well with pick carts. Picking accuracy is ensured by scanners attached to data terminals and check digits spoken into the voice system.

 

For cluster picking operations, each shipping carton shelf location can be equipped with indicator lamps and press buttons. This ensures that the picked items are placed into the correct shipping carton.

Conveyor Linked Cart Picking

Cart picking efficiencies can often be enhanced with a conveyor system that routes orders between areas, or one that moves picked order totes to the packing or dispatch areas.
