Solutions / BOS - Box Order System
BOS - Box Order System
The Box Order System (BOS) is a WITRON development that not only meets the high expectations in terms of product handling, but also sets new standards in terms of efficiency, throughput, and ergonomics in the fresh food environment. Based on its high flexibility, the solution can also be used for the handling of beverage crates.
Level of automation
Fully automated
Picking unit
Standardized totes / cartons / beverage crates
The solution has a modular design. Every module consists of a replenishment stacker crane and four picking cranes - known as the Box Picking Machines (BPM). Once the goods have been received, the single-item box stacks are first separated from the receiving pallet and then directly stored into the pick front through the replenishment cranes. It can be used in all temperature zones.
  • Modular design - all items are available for picking in each module
  • Short throughput times due to lean material flow processes
  • Fully flexible picking of tote stacks, partial stacks, or single cases directly through the Box Picking Machine (BPM
  • Cases are stacked during their transportation to the next pick position
  • Error-free creation of store-friendly cases directly through the BPM
Special features
Store-friendly tote picking is carried out highly dynamically through the newly developed BPM stacker crane. The BPM was designed in a way that its light-weight telescopic fork embraces rather thank lifts the totes or tote stacks. The advantage: Not only single crates, but also a number of load carriers aligned to the customer order - that means full tote stacks, partial stacks, or single crates - can be removed from the rack in a fully flexible manner. During the transportation to the next pick position, they are directly consolidated to store-friendly units without errors using the stacker crane.
