EcoPocket™ combines garments on hangers (GOH) and flat folded goods (FFG) in one system. The loading of EcoPocket™ takes place at different locations within the warehouse, compensating different picking speeds. The system forms buffers in order to carry out waves regardless of the picking progress. The buffer option can also be used for efficient integration of returned goods or fast-moving items in order to increase the efficiency of the fulfillment center. EcoPocket™ sequences the individual bags in the system and directs them to the packing stations in the correct order.
Individual parts from containers or totes provided at the induct stations are loaded automatically or by an operator into the EcoPocket, which is equipped with RFID. From here on, all further steps take place automatically, e.g. buffering or multi-stage sequencing.
After this sorting process, the goods are made available for a specific order and in the specified sequence at the packing stations. Monitors show any additional information, e.g. the number of parts in the order, the type of packaging or even product photos of the parts to be packed. Operators now remove the items from the pockets and pack them according to customer orders.
The EcoPocket system also works together with the Roll Adapter. Hanging and flat packed goods in one single system.Picture gallery
