Smart Picking

Optimized order picking with the Hänel Lean-Lift®
and Hänel Rotomat®

With web devices that make order picking easy and flexible
This future-centric and affordable order picking solution concept is based on HänelSoft® warehouse management software in conjunction with the aggregated order module. This approach means that several orders can be combined in one aggregated picking transaction.

The picking process conducted at the Hänel lifts and in the rack area typically involves the use of a transport cart which carries a bin for each individual order.

The bins are fitted with web devices that show employees which bins are to be used for each pick operation.
The allocation of bins and web devices is quite easy and fast thanks to the use of barcode scanners or direct data input via the web device. Aggregated picking is conducted in parallel at the lift controller supported by the web device – this saves time and keeps routing short.

The Put-to-Light display also shows the item number, order number, quantities on inventory, etc. directly on the bins positioned on the picking transport cart.

All data and transactions are managed and booked by the HänelSoft® WMS. The use of commercially available web devices in this system application makes this solution very convenient, efficient and affordable.
