The SCS picking system increases the picking performance by a factor of 6 to 10 by a zero error rate at the same time. A multifunctional work station allows picking and storage operations to be concentrated in one place. In order to guarantee a 100% assignment all movements are monitored via optical sensors. The multifunctional workstations are designed not only for goods received and item picking but also for returned goods processing. The pick to bucket option allows it to pick and transfer the items via a belt conveyor to the order tote at a central filling point. For large, heavy or fragile items the SCS offers the pick to tote option. The number of items is displayed by a pick by light system. The destination is also displayed to the operator. The exchange of order totes is fully automatic.
