Numina Group has been awarded the prestigious TGW sales award for the second consecutive year.

Numina Group, a leading supplier of automated order fulfillment for warehouse and distribution operations, integrates the full family of TGW conveyors and sorters to streamline pick, pack, ship, and receiving operations.

Woodridge, IL – Numina Group (www.numinagroup.com)  is honored to announce for the second year in a row they have been awarded the TGW Integrator Sales Award, reserved for top tier integrators. Numina Group designs and implements automated material handling systems, utilizing TGW’s wide range of conveyors and sorters for a variety of installations. Jeff Siebert, TGW Regional Sales Manager, stated that “only the top integrators achieve this prestigious award and very few TGW Integrators have the distinction of earning this award two years in a row.”

Dan Hanrahan, President of Numina Group, stated that “TGW is a premier material handling supplier with a wide array of technologies, and provides Numina Group an experienced design support staff to assist in our design efforts throughout the project. TGW’s conveyor line is especially well suited for zone routing conveyor used in pick modules for Omni-Channel and E-commerce Fulfillment applications.”

Numina Group’s industry leading Real-time Distribution Software, RDS™, a Tier 1 Warehouse Control System (WCS), utilizes voice picking and/or pick to light to manage order picking and intelligent routing conveyors, implementing single touch pick and pack order validation, which increases accuracy and eliminates secondary inspection and packing labor.

The RDS™ Cartonization module assures that “right sized” order cartons are selected to match the shipment requirements and route orders to conveyor pick zones, reducing operator labor and walk time, delivering operator picking efficiencies of 200-300 lines or more per hour

Using an intelligent zone routing conveyor matched with best practices voice picking and SKU velocity slotting leads to highly efficient and accurate order fulfillment. This approach is a cost effective solution for a wide variety of distribution requirements, especially for Omni- Channel retail, E-commerce and less than case level Direct to Store order fulfillment.Upon completion of order picking, cartons travel from the pick module to pack and ship automated conveyor lines. Integrated into the pack area conveyor is in-line scan, weigh, dimensioning, and pack sheet printers and inserters, combined with print and apply labeling to streamline the pack process. TGW zero touch accumulation conveyor and 24 MDR modular DC roller conveyors are ideally suited for in-line pack automation and high volume print and apply labeling systems. “For shipping, the TGW NBS Narrow Belt Wave Sorter™ provides a high performance sorter that handles a wide variety of carton sizes and weights at sortation rates over 125 CPM. It lowers cost by 40% or more when compared to a comparably performing Shoe Sorter,” stated Hanrahan.
