Piece Picking:

Batch to Sorter Picking

High-Volume Piece Picking Made Simple

Dematic Batch to Sorter Picking solutions provide effective waveless fulfilment that address the dynamic needs of the e-Commerce and omni-channel markets. These solutions optimise labour by batch picking a large volume of orders from conventional or automated storage systems and using mechanical sorters to replace or augment manual putwall operation.

At the heart of this solution is Dematic iQ Optimise software that continually monitors resource utilization and dynamically adjusts and prioritizes work based on the latest urgency and priority of orders. 

The results:  Reduced order-cycle time, less labour costs, decreased transportation costs, and improved accuracy.

How Batch to Sorter Picking Works

  1. Voice commands direct operators to specific pick locations to pick the total quantity for all open orders.
  2. Operators pick the items and put them into totes and continue picking within their assigned pick zone until the tote is full.
  3. The conveyor system transports full totes from various pick zones to the mechanical sortation system where each item is individually scanned and inducted.
  4. Items are delivered to specific sort points until orders are fully consolidated.
  5. Consolidated orders are routed to packing areas.
