Order picking still remains one of the most time-consuming and labor intensive activities. Often, this still is a manual or semi-automated process. There are numerous options to prevent picking from becoming your organization’s bottleneck. To offer customers a fully automated solution, Equinox MHE has partnered with i-Collector and from now on offers the i-Collector as one of the possible buffer systems.

It acts as a buffer device for totes and trays or stacks of totes and cartons, delivering them from and to operators through transportation systems or AGV’s. This buffer device is designed for e-commerce, fashion, electronics and retail applications and therefore makes a perfect fit with Equinox’s experience in these markets.
