How Kollmorgen Pick-n-Go® AGV works
Pick-n-Go® is based on automated forklifts that can be provided by your current fork lift supplier. The system lets your pickers and automated forklifts work together so that wherever a worker picks an item, there is always a forklift ready and waiting.
To begin the process, the Warehouse Management System sends the customer order to a picker and a forklift simultaneously. At this moment, the forklift is automatically placed in the correct position with forks at the right height for the current order. With the forklift nearby, the picker can now pick the order and place the goods in an efficient and ergonomic way on the pallet. A new order is then sent from the system and the forklift automatically escorts the picker to the next location. When the pallet is almost full the system sends a new forklift with an empty pallet to the picker. The forklift with the full pallet travels to the dispatch area. After leaving the pallet at the dispatch area, the forklift picks up a new empty pallet and is ready for a new picking order. The picker continues to work on the next order without interruption, never leaving the picking area.
