Warehouse System Options
There is always an accessory to meet your needs.
We provide a range of accessories to customize your Modula automatic vertical storage system in order to improve your productivity.
We have, for example, accessories that make picking and placing operations much easier and more efficient, reducing the occurrence of those errors commonly made by operators.
We supply devices that safeguard your goods by tracing and limiting access to them (even to individual trays).
We also have aids that guide the operator step by step during the preparation of orders, with which it is possible to prepare several orders simultaneously, thus reducing wait times.
VISUAL AIDS FOR PICKING
Visual aids make picking and placing operations much faster by providing visual guidance to the location of the item sought. In this way the operator is guided to the items in the tray, which significantly reduces errors.
These accessories must be connected remotely to acquire the position of the item from the WMS.
The optimization of time and performance is very important to all companies and these accessories enable picking and placing rates to be doubled, while making any operation simpler and more efficient. Production-related requirements are met thanks to these aids.
These devices safeguard the stored items from unauthorized access. Login is carried out through strictly personal devices, such as Badges or EKS keys which make access operations extremely quick. These methods, compared to standard procedures like entering passwords, eliminate the risk of unauthorized personnel gaining access to the items stored. This user authentication system limits access to the machine or even to specific trays.
ORDER PICKING SOLUTIONS
These accessories were designed to improve productivity, enabling operators to increase the number of order lines that can be processed in a given time frame: more picking lines means more efficiency, more profit and more productivity, with no compromise on accuracy.
Among its many functions, Modula’s WMS includes the possibility to manage several orders simultaneously and to place the items in designated areas (stations) outside the machine. Our solutions are innovative and ensure outstanding productivity compared to traditional methods. Thanks to the available displays, the operator can intuitively place the items just picked in the right external station, increasing the number of order lines processed in the same time frame. Order preparation thus becomes an efficient and precise activity especially in those cases when the speed of order fulfillment is a critical factor.
OPTIONS TO IMPROVE PRODUCTIVITY
These accessories simplify picking and placing activities, making order preparation fast and easy in contrast with traditional methods which are often slow and ineffective for today’s standards.
Their main advantages are the increase in productivity and time optimization.
Metal separators and dividers are available to properly organize all items inside trays: trays are first equipped with special slotted elements that support the separators and dividers in order to create compartments of the needed sizes. It is also possible to increase the height of the tray sides by means of extensions, thus increasing the volume of the tray itself. This facilitates the storage of a greater quantity of loose materials and prevents the unwanted shifting of tall and bulky items outside the trays. Tray layouts can be changed at any time, according to specific needs, by simply manually moving the separators and dividers.
Bay accessories include those components which are physically tied to the bay whether by their position or their function.
They guarantee increased operator safety as they prevent access to the trays when the machine is off and avoid any contact with hazardous materials.
In addition, they enhance ergonomics through more accessible controls and by simplifying the extraction of trays for better handling of materials.
One of the accessories we always recommend is the automatic door, which ensures better preservation of the stored materials.
These accessories provide innovative solutions for the specific needs of any company.
Here we have grouped those accessories that solve problems related to inadequate flooring, the use of anthropomorphic robots, warehouses with dim and/or insufficient ambient light for safe picking and placing activities, and to those cases where the Copilot panel cannot be used.
