ITW Warehouse Automation: Pallet picking

Swift Pick case picking enhancement provides more efficient flow rack and high-level pallet picking.

ITW Warehouse Automation introduces its new “Swift Pick” enhancement to case picking for both flow rack and higher level pallet picking. Swift Pick increases the individual picking rates and efficiencies of product flow through automation.
It incorporates proprietary software that enables operators to use a mobile device or tablet as their case-picking monitor. It further allows users to pick at a pace that keeps the conveyor line full of product, increasing the overall units per hour moving through the system.

Swift Pick was developed specifically to help the hand pick operators optimize their picking efficiency. Traditionally, operators get their pick order from overhead monitors that are located adjacent to their pick area. With Swift Pick, they have the information literally attached to their arm or wrist. As the operators go up and down the aisles to pick the assigned cases, they no longer have to refer back to the overhead monitor to register the item was picked and placed on the conveyor. They can simply refer to their handheld device, tap on the item picked and immediately move on to the next. In addition, the operator can view several picks at once as opposed to one at a time.

Swift Pick is intuitive and can be set up in a matter of hours. It requires minimal training and can be incorporated into new or existing systems. Users can also seamlessly add additional program applications. For example, Swift Pick can also be set to alert operators where additional pick support is required in the warehouse.
