What types of Case Picking does Dematic provide?

Innovative waveless technology to guide operators by voice commands or by lights. Operators dynamically fill orders based on actual real-time conditions, ensuring accuracy, and reducing fulfillment time from hours to just minutes. Picks are made from pallets and/or case-flow racks in high-density, multi-level pick modules to maximize available space.

These systems are best suited for space-constrained operations that handle high volumes with large numbers of SKUs and work well in both ambient and temperature-controlled environments.

General Workflow:

  1. Voice, labels, or lights direct operators to pick all cases required for a batch of orders within a specific pick module.
  2. Operators make the picks, placing each case on the outbound conveyor.
  3. The conveyor transports and merges cases from various pick modules and then sorts them to individual shipping lanes based on order requirements.
