Stöcklin Logistics has launched Stöcklin CasePicker to address the specific product logistics challenges and opportunities now facing produce shippers.
The Stöcklin CasePicker offers a completely automated solution for distribution centers serving hundreds of retail outlets, with freshness zones from 4°C to 14°C and up to 135,000 cases/day for fruit and vegetables. It features a depalletizer with intelligent control that manages a special gripper with a suction strip and underride plate to ensure gentle and reliable case picking. In addition, the gripper allows different returnable and disposable containers to be picked immediately after another for the first time.
The Stöcklin CasePicker is completely modular and scalable. Depending on the required performance, it can be upgraded by adding new modules and used in combination with Stöcklin equipment such as the FTS Eagle-Ant picking and conveying equipment. In addition, the modules can be integrated into existing buildings and structures as well as capable of docking with existing systems.
The Stöcklin CasePicker ensures that only the intended goods are picked directly from the produce pallet for the retail-outlet pallet which prevents unnecessary movement. In addition, the system speed depends on the order volume. This process optimization and variable utilization reduces the energy required in comparison to conventional solutions.
