- Ehrhardt + Partner steadily develops new components for
optimized picking in the warehouse. The hardware allows faster and more
accurate picking as picking errors are reduced, warehouse productivity is
increased and the routes in the warehouse are shortened.
Part of the hardware components by E+P is the mobile picking trolley, which
allows a greater mobility in the warehouse, and the mobile picking board
which contributes to a higher flexibility as it can be mounted to several
transport devices one after another. The new sorting rack is used for the
simultaneous handling of several orders and significantly simplifies fine
picking. The RFID-Multipicker prevents interchanging containers. This way,
the picked orders can be permanently traced. The mobile workstation is
particularly suitable for flexible data collection in the warehouse. To
complete the range of products, E+P always offers the current Vocollect
hardware for the use of Pick-by-Voice as well as handhelds and fork lift
terminals by Psion Teklogix.

Perfect Match – RFID Solutions for each Industry
Correctly integrated, the RFID technology offers a higher process
quality, simplified and accelerated processes as well as significant cost
reductions. Next to those general advantages, an additional
industry-specific optimisation potential shall be realised. Therefore,
Ehrhardt + Partner has developed specific RFID solutions for the domains of
pharmaceutics, textiles, electronic products, consumer electronics and
document management together with their subsidiary ITL, the Institute for
Technical Solutions in Logistics.
Under consideration of an adequate RFID hardware for the according
application area, the new E+P industry solutions also allow recording goods
which are positioned close to each other. By now, the parallel recording of
large product quantities in closest proximity – the so-called bulk
registration – could not be guaranteed in most cases. This often caused many
items to be individualised with a lot of effort. The new RFID solutions
respect those individual requirements and allow a significantly faster
product recording and identification.
