Order picking system - HSP Next

HSP Next sets a new standard in the marked!
The system is designed to be as ergonomic as possible while maximising production. The new conveyor system produces minimal waste, lower energy costs and reduces noise level. This results in improved conditions for both staff and  environment, which further increases productivity.

Conveyor technology - roller conveyor

The HS conveyor system (for HS transport carriers or containers) consists of segments with individually controlled drives. The logistic system ensures product flow through the HS "stop-and-go" system. The transport system is reliable, smooth and almost soundless. Each zone can be controlled individually or in groups. This leads to a rapid transport of each container and  a precise stopp when necessary. The position of each container on the transport system is constantly monitored.

Picking stations

The HSP Next picking stations have been designed for maximum productivity and optimal ergonomics.

Each station includes a certain number of titles positions on one, two, three or more levels. A shelf, a section with rollers, the weighing plate and the stack depositors are located on the side of the picking station. A ZCP with detailed information about the picking process, a clear presentation of the collection displays and other functions (e.g. interaction for quantity adjustments and weight tolerances) also belongs to the picking station.

On the supply-side the system provides alphanumeric title displays with the progressive residual quantity indication and a storage compartment for unpacking and positioning.

HSP Next document manager and –applier

The HS News system is able to handle customized documents, print them in the correct order through the online HS document manager, and then finally assign them to the correct bundles. By using bar code readers, belt conveyors, stoppers and accumulation zones the HS document applier ensures that the right documents are categorized in the correct container.

Fully automated package transfer from the conveyor to the strapping machine

The HS transfer point where the packages are transferred from the conveyor to the strapping machine makes sure the packages are delivered effectively and safely. The packages are led to the first strapping machine by the help of a set of forks, while the side stabilizers provides lateral, mechanical assistance.

HS Title - Position check

To confirm that all the titles on the roller conveyor has the right positions, HS News has a title-position check program in the beginning of the commissioning process. The program is run by using a barcode reader which is connected to the HS picking server via the network. The operator/applier scans the barcode of a title, and then the scanning is followed by a visual signal displayed on the corresponding title display. Duplicated titles trigger a notification.
