Layer picking challenges

Organizations face a range of challenges when it comes to layer picking:

  • Speed of change as more and more product lines need to be picked.
  • Recruiting manual labor for picking, and providing ergonomic working practices, are key challenges.
  • Damaged products caused by manual picking errors can significantly increase costs.

Integrated Layer Picker Solutions for increased efficiency

Our fully-integrated Layer Picker Solutions provide automated de-palletizing and pallet-to-pallet picking. This unique, automated, flexible system can be scaled up to 10,000 picks per day at one location. 

Körber’s Layer Picker Solutions can automatically build rainbow pallets with different layers, while providing automated buffering of pallets and improving the working environment in warehouses and distribution centers.

At the center of the application, our industry-standard Layer Picker can handle up to 98% of all goods commonly found in food retail. This innovative piece of equipment can pick a single layer or several layers at once. In addition, it can pick layers with voids and layers with open trays or cases with loose lids.

Key benefits

Fully automated

Automation reduces complexity in the picking process, while increasing speed and accuracy.

Reduced costs

Expandable and adaptable to changes, the system can also be integrated into existing systems.
