    In accordance with the picking instructions from the control module, the goods in the appropriate quantity are pushed out of the storage module by the picking module and into the order picking module. It is then conveyed on a conveyor belt for inspection and packaging. In this way, the system can process up to 3,000 orders per hour.

    The replenishment of the A-Frame channels with goods takes place without interrupting the picking process. A-Frame is easy to refill: one person can fill up to 2,000 items per hour.

    The channels of the storage module can be adapted to different product sizes. For wide/long products, it is possible to remove one rail, which allows for the selection of larger products. The modularity of the picking system allows for the vertical channels to be extended. The multiplicity of increase is 12 channels per side. The basic model consists of 24 channels, 12 per side.

    A-Frame allows picking with different solutions: Pick-to-Belt, Pick-to-Tote, Pick-to-Bucket and Pick-to-Carton. The picking system can be either a stand-alone solution or an element of a complete solution and meets the most important challenges of modern microfulfillment. In particular – easy implementation and low personnel requirements, modularity = scalability, flexibility and integration with other equipment, highest throughput and accuracy.
