SSI Schaefer unveils new A-Frame


SSI Schaefer has unveiled its new A-Frame fully automated order picking system for high-turnaround products.

The A-Frame was showcased during CeMat 2011 – the world's leading intralogistics trade fair – in Hannover, Germany earlier this year.

The Schaefer A-Frame represents the world’s fastest and most efficient order picking solution for single item picking.

With up to 50,000 items per hour, peak loads are easily covered.

The Schaefer A-Frame increases productivity levels for fast-turnaround items by more than 400 per cent.

With costs of below 4c per pick, savings of up to 80 per cent can be achieved in comparision to manual picking.

The Schaefer A-Frame is ideal for picking orders with high line counts coupled with low item quantities per line.

This means more than 1000 orders per hour can be easily and efficiently achieved – each with 20 or more different items.
