Storage and Buffering:

Garment-on-Hanger Storage

Faster Cycle Times, Reduced Costs for the Warehouse and Customers

Fast-changing consumer preferences, seasonable trends, and sales promotions in the garment industry require speed and accuracy to process orders. Dematic Garment-on-Hanger Storage solutions allows storage and shipment of clothing in display-ready condition quickly and accurately.

Items are sequenced by style, type, color, size, and other variables, which reduces labour at stores by making restocking fast and easy. Labour is also reduced for handling returns — especially important for e-Commerce companies.

Dematic offers several options, including overhead Garment-on-Hanger, overhead trolley, and Garment-on-Hanger AS/RS. All are designed to optimize underused vertical space to store more in less floor space. Dematic iQ software manages these solutions keeping orders moving quickly while tracking colour, size, style, and other factors to ensure accuracy.

How Garment-on-Hanger Storage Works

Overhead Garment-on-Hanger and Overhead Trolley

  1. Returned or newly-introduced garments are identified and inducted into the system at designated induction stations.
  2. Individual garments (or collection of garments on a trolley) are transported, merged, and stored in the system.
  3. Items are dynamically sorted, sequenced, and delivered to shipping areas to fulfil orders.

Garment-on-Hanger AS/RS

  1. Racks of garments are manually or automatically identified and delivered to designated inbound stations.
  2. The system selects the best storage location and Storage Retrieval Machines (SRMs) automatically transports the racks of garments to designated storage locations. 
  3. When needed, the SRMs automatically retrieve racks and delivers them to outbound drop-off locations.
