Productivity in picking and putaway
Manual cart or pallet picking is time consuming. Pickers can spend lots of time walking and lose interest in their jobs, while making errors for no fault of their own. Electric lift trucks reduce time but never decrease the numbers for staffing.
Tractonomy is developing picking and putaway solutions that work with both trolleys/carts or pallets. Expect dramatic improvements in productivity and reductions in error rates.
How it works
Tractonomy’s ATRs can be deployed alongside zoned pickers to bring carts from staging areas to pick points. Once a pick is confirmed, the robot brings the cart to the next pick point and returns the cart to the staging area. All operations are optimized by interfacing our Multi-robot management solution to your WMS.
Pickup empty carts at Staging area
In preparation for a pick run, ATRs can pick up carts including specificially designed carts for pallet case picking.
Positioning at Pick Points
ATRs can be optimized for a variety of picking strategies and SKUs. A variety of pick confirmation solutions can be implemented based on your existing technology or new innovative alternatives.
Return to staging
Picked goods are returned to one or more staging areas where they can labelled, packaged and shipped out.
