Knapp to Offer Kollmorgen Warehouse Control Systems

May 7, 2010
Kollmorgen, a manufacturer of “driverless” control technology, announces that Knapp will license its NDC Suite technology and Pick-n-Go order picking systems and integrate them in warehouse applications.

Pick-n-Go is an automated order picking system that integrates with existing warehouse management systems (WMS). According to Kollmorgen, the Pick-n-Go system can provide improvements in order picking productivity of more than 60% and pay for itself in 12 to 24 months.

NDC Suite is an AGV control technology based on Kollmorgen’s NDC8 control module. It can work with any type of AGV, says the company.

Knapp plans to implement Kollmorgen’s control technologies along with Knapp systems, including the KiSoft Voice pick-by-voice system, KiSoft WMS and KiSoft Control warehouse control system.
