How to Improve Productivity with Batch Picking Horizontal Carousels

August 6, 2013
Are you picking one order at a time? Many businesses use the search and pick order fulfillment process. Employees walk around searching and picking parts one by one and putting as many parts as they can fit on the cart. But what if you could improve your picking process by 800% (yes, eight hundred percent)? Businesses using horizontal carousel storage systems have achieved these types of improvements using horizontal carousel shelves. Horizontal carousels are computer driven storage machines that rotate to bring parts to the picker. Multiple orders are batched together by the carousel's inventory control software and then sent to the horizontal carousel. The computerize software communicates and controls the movement of the carousel shelves telling them when to rotate, where to stop, and even indicate which bin to pick parts from. Workers are able to pick parts for several orders at one time because the sophisticated computer software is organizing and grouping parts together for quick and easy picking.
