CPS

Car Picking System

manual order picking by means of radio frequency, RF, pick-by-voice, or pick-by-light for automated replenishment

The CPS storage system is a manual order picking system for route-optimized picking of cases onto pallets or roll containers, supported by radio frequency, RF, pick-by-voice, or pick-by-light technology. The order-related replenishment of the pick front is automated through the use of stacker cranes. The positioning of an article is performed in a systematically-controlled way according to the store-friendly picking process.

According to the principle "person-to-goods" it is possible in CPS to pick several orders in parallel at one time by one picker.
