During order picking, goods are retrieved from rack systems and placed on trucks or pallet transport equipment, for example in order for orders to be made up in mail-order companies. By its very nature, this task involves considerable manipulation and moving of loads. It is also often performed under high time pressure. It is therefore all the more important for the transport equipment to support the worker as much as possible in his or her task.

Order pickers in the Crown GPC 3000 range support the worker ergonomically in several ways. Besides the facility for raising the load pallets to a comfortable height for loading, features such as the lifting platform and the step also facilitate the retrieval of goods from the higher shelves of racks.


Folding step

Problems

During order picking, goods are retrieved selectively from warehouse shelves and placed on order picking trolleys or pallets. Floor storage areas may not be sufficient for all goods, particularly in major retail store chains. Even frequently used goods may therefore have to be placed on the second shelf level. Since work is normally performed under high time pressure, the workers often do not have the time to fetch a ladder or platform. As a result, they may climb onto cases on the lower level, or may handle goods higher up in a stretched posture or on tiptoe (see EN 1005-2).

Stress category
Solution


The folding step at the entry point on the side of the order picker facilitates access to goods located at a height. The wide step provides sure footing, and a grip on the backrest can be used in addition to assist climbing. Goods on higher shelves are much more accessible as a result.

Solution

The platform hoist on the order picker raises the worker at the driver's platform to a height of 950 mm above floor level. This provides the worker with good access to goods located at a height and at the same time assures stable footing on the hoist platform. The retrieved goods can be placed on the surface above the backrest as the hoist is lowered. All-round fencing is not required, owing to the working height being below 1 m.

Principle of operation

Adjustability of machine parts for assisting the workflow
