Equipment ResourceSouthworth Brouchure Shows Practical Applications of Ergonomics This little booklet done in comic book style uses simple illustrations to take readers on a walk through a hypothetical, yet typical, plant where the plant manager, safety director, and controller point out a variety of problems that were solved through the practical application of ergonomics.
Ideal for handling single-part or small-volume orders, the new LR 35 Vertical Buffer Module storage and retrieval unit made its red carpet debut in a press conference at the Kardex Remstar exhibit (Booth S2912) yesterday. The unit consists of a shelf system with automatic bin handling, goods-to-person picking stations and its own logistics software.
“The LR 35 improves order picking performance, energy efficiency and the amount of floor space required for storage of goods,” explained Mark Dunaway, EVP of new business. “Roughly 500 order lines per picking station per hour can be achieved with two or more units or batch picking.”
The machine supports up to four, turntable-based picking stations tilted at an ergonomic 20-degree angle. While the operator picks one order, the LR 35 preps the next bin and places it on the rear shelf of the turntable, which rotates for the next pick to minimize wait time, Dunaway added.
