Witron COM: The Cost-Effective Way to Automatically Produce Mixed Order Pallets

    ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, ILL., August 9 /CNW/ - Witron Integrated Logistics
Corp., noted for its competence in designing and realizing highly automated
system solutions, announced that it recently sold its 200th fully automated
picking device called "Case Order Machine" (COM). "With COM as the core
element of Witron's totally integrated and automated warehouse and picking
solution referred to as "Order Picking Machinery (OPM), we introduced a new
era of case picking. It is COM that enables automatic picking of cases with
varied sizes, shapes, volumes and package types without the need for any
gripping or suction techniques," explains Karl Hoegen, Chief Operating
Officer. The American system provider states OPM is incredibly beneficial for
retailers that must supply thousands or unique products to hundreds of stores
day after day. OPM reduces operational and transportation costs and provides
store-friendly order delivery as well as aisle-friendly sequencing:
"Supermarket chains that offer a comprehensive range of dry goods will benefit
from this technology, because it enables the automatic picking of thousands of
dry good trading units. At one of our OPM installations, the number of trading
units picked automatically exceeds 10,000 different SKUs", adds Hoegen.
Currently, OPM systems can be found in the US in distribution centers of
leading supermarket chains as well as at EDEKA Rhein-Ruhr in Germany and
Mercadona in Spain.
