Piece Picking:

Overhead Picking

Save Labor and Space Processing Items for Store-Friendly Delivery

Dematic Overhead Picking solutions optimise underused vertical space to process more garments in a smaller floor space. Dematic iQ software sequences garments by style, type, color, size, and other variables, which reduces labour at stores by making restocking fast and easy. Shipping display-ready items makes restocking fast and easy. Labour is also reduced for handling returns — especially important for e-Commerce companies. The highly efficient overall operation allows for later order deadlines.

The Dematic Pouch system is an overhead solution designed for handling packaged and bulky apparel. It combines storage, transport, and sorting functionality into a single automated hanging system.

The Dematic Garment-on-Hanger system is an overhead solution designed to limit human touches to improve order accuracy and reduce cycle times. It is the ideal application for the fashion industry, allowing clothing, shoes, and accessories to be combined into single orders.

How Overhead Picking Works

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