Numina Group’s Warehouse Technologies and Software to be showcased at Promat 2019 – Booth #S4237
Numina Group, a leading material handling order fulfillment automation integrator, will demonstrate several of their key technologies including pick by voice, pick and pack to light and exclusive print and apply labeling solutions integrated for automating pack and ship operations.
Numina Group’s family of automation technologies are managed by RDS™ a highly scalable Real-time Warehouse Execution and Control Software, WES-WCS Platform. One-Step-Plus™ and X-Press PAL™ print and apply labeling systems streamline parcel shipping and manifesting. These systems scan, weigh and dimension carton shipments and auto apply a combination packing sheet and shipping label. The systems reduces 35 seconds of labor from every parcel order.
Additionally, Dan Hanrahan, Numina Group’s President will present “A Practical and Cost Effective Approach to Deploying Autonomous Vehicles for Pick, Pack and Ship Wednesday, April 10th at Theater B 3:45 to 4:30.
Technologies to be demonstrated at Booth # S4237 include:
- One-Step-Plus Print and Apply Labeling – Automates Pack Sheet/Shipping Label and Manifesting
- X-Press PAL Print and Apply Labeling
- RDS™ Pick by Voice
- Print, Fold, Insert Pack Automation
- Put to Light Order Consolidation
RDS Pick by Voice technology is speaker independent, requires zero voice training, combines voice commands/responses and hands-free camera based barcode scanning. The voice picking application supports pick to carton, batch carts, fork trucks, and conveyor picking. RDS™ also includes optimized order release and cartonization logic. RDS’s™ voice pick and pack validation technology provides a single touch, highly accurate means for a new or temporary operator to be productive in minutes.
Auto Print Fold Insert (PFI) prints, folds, and auto inserts from one to seven 8.5″ x 11″ packing sheets into multiple height and carton sizes. PFI automates out the bottleneck of manual order documentation with insertion of packing sheets, return labels, promotional materials, coupons, and other requirements as needed. PFI™ technology can scale from 10 to 50 or more CPM operations to reduce 30 or more seconds of labor from every shipment.
One Step Plus™ Print and Apply labeling auto applies a combination full 8.5” x 11” packing sheet and shipping label to full case or re-packed mixed SKU cartons to reduce 30-45 seconds of labor per parcel shipment. The system is ideally suited for high volume E-com and B2B order fulfillment applications that require a full 8.5” x 11” packing sheet such as medical device manufacturers, hospital supply shippers, and retailers providing e-commerce order fulfillment services for Amazon, Walmart, Target, Wayfair, QVC, and others.
X-Press PAL™ Print and Apply Labeling auto applies one or more 4” x 6” pack slips under a removable 6” x 8” shipping label. X-Press PAL™ automation includes inline scan, weigh, dimension with automatic application of packing slips, compliance, carton content, and shipping labels.
Put to Light Order Consolidation Put wall order consolidation technology essentially sorts by lights and allows parallel batch order picking across multiple pick zones. At the order consolidation area, operators scan and put the batch picked SKU’s to order consolidation shelf positions at a rate of 400 to 500 items per hour. Put to light is a highly efficient and cost effective way to batch pick hundreds of orders throughout the DC, gaining 30% to 50% higher productivity than discrete order picking.
RDS™ Pick by Voice combined with Put to Light order consolidation provides the ability to batch pick hundreds of orders in a fast and highly accurate manner across all warehouse zones. Order totes or hamper carts are directed to the Put Walls for order consolidation and pack to shipping cartons. Batch cart picking is ideally suited to the latest generation of autonomous vehicles that automate the transport of the batch pick cart to the put walls, packing, and shipping areas.
