PRLog - Nov. 8, 2011 - HATFIELD, Pa. -- The new iPhone and iPad application for order picking and fulfillment is now available on all Sapient Automation Hornet Horizontal Carousels and Avenger Vertical Carousels and retrofits. Simple click and go icons helps organizations lean their operations while increasing operator productivity and order accuracy. Demonstrated at MODEX, Atlanta, GA Booth #1000 in February 2012. http://www.getsapient.com/news-events.html

From picking to management to maintenance, the iPhone/iPad application provides easy and intuitive control. Managers can view real time activity levels. Operators can access any shelf or bin with a click or rotate each carousel to browse its contents. The maintenance staff can view basic equipment status and conditions.

The iPhone/iPad application can be used as the carousels sole dedicated interface or used in conjunction with a software driven system. Likewise, virtually all horizontal carousels and vertical carousels regardless of their age and manufacturer can be updated with state of the art controls which will provide not only the iPhone/iPad applications, but also IMHM (Intelligent Machine Health Monitoring) on every carousel. Sapient Automations SSC controller combines state of the art reliability with optimum performance.

Implementing  iPhone/iPad carousel storage and retrieval solutions such as the Hornet Horizontal Carousel with Sapient Automation's world class COP (Customer One Protection) Service Group gives customers assurance that their systems will perform from day one with Sapient Automation's Remote Intelligent Machine Health Monitoring System. Key information is monitored in real time by the COP Service Group in order to detect variances and anomalies which could lead to failure or performance issues. Local technicians and central COP Service Group monitors and responds accordingly to any issues that may arise. The facility service coordinator is contacted and notified and a plan on how to correct the issue is discussed and implemented. The net result is a system that is up and running for years to come.  http://www.youtube.com/user/GetSapient#p/u/7/ezgkHTqu3Fs

The Hornet Horizontal Carousel with iPhone/iPad control is comprised of a series of bins with shelves that rotate on a track horizontally. Multiple horizontal carousels are used in one integrated workstation called a pod. A wave of orders is downloaded to the workstation. Batches of eight to ten orders are then sent to the carousels. The carousels will begin rotating automatically and stop at the first pick. A Pick to Light Lightree directs the picker as to which carousel, the item and quantity to pick. The picker completes the batch in a round robin fashion until the batch is complete. The orders are then sent to shipping or the next workstation and the next batch is started until the entire wave is completed.

The Avenger Vertical Carousel with iPhone or iPad retrofit is a series of shelves or carriers rotate vertically and deliver the required part or item to the operator at an ergonomic height work counter with a click of a button, scan of a bar code or voice command.
