Picking

Picking refers to the compilation of specific units from a provided contract-based range of items. The member of staff who puts together the orders is called a picker, or gripper.

Customer orders often consist of several positions. In practice, a variety of picking methods is used to realize these sales orders in a smooth, error-free and time-optimized way. Hövelmann uses different picking systems, also including pick-by voice:

This technology completely replaces paper order picking with paperless order picking. Compared to conventional picking solutions, the major advantage of pick-by-voice is that it reduces the amounts of steps in the pick process. The order picker receives pick instructions via a headset and confirms his execution of the operation by voice into the microphone. Handling paper list or mobile barcode readers are no longer necessary, which means major time savings with paperless picking. The employee can fully concentrate on the gripping process, which results in higher picking accuracy and speed. Communication with the voice system is carried out via a small mobile computer which the picker carries in a pouch on his belt. Standard PDAs are used as mobile devices.

Packing

Packaging is notably becoming increasingly more important for our customers.
According to your specifications we pack together the different parts by hand or machine. You can rely on our packaging.
