Forklift Order Pickers

 

Forklift order pickers, also known as order picker forklifts or order selectors, are specialized material handling equipment used to pick items from racks or shelves in warehouses, distribution centers, and manufacturing facilities. These forklifts are designed to allow operators to access and pick items at various heights, making them suitable for order fulfillment tasks. Here's an overview of forklift order pickers:

Key Features of Forklift Order Pickers:

  1. Operator Platform: Order pickers have an operator platform or cabin that can be raised to the desired picking height, allowing operators to reach items on shelves or racks.

  2. Fork Lift and Lower: In addition to raising the operator platform, order pickers have forks that can be lifted and lowered to pick up and deposit items.

  3. Load Capacity: Order pickers come in various load capacities, allowing them to handle a range of items, from small packages to larger loads.

  4. Platform Controls: Operators have controls on the platform for raising and lowering, allowing them to position themselves at the desired height.

  5. Maneuverability: Order pickers are designed for maneuverability in tight spaces, allowing them to navigate aisles and racks with ease.

  6. Safety Features: Order pickers are equipped with safety features such as guardrails, non-slip surfaces, and operator presence sensors to ensure safe operations.

  7. Operator Comfort: Operator cabins or platforms are designed with ergonomic features to provide comfort during long picking tasks.

Benefits of Forklift Order Pickers:

  1. Efficient Picking: Order pickers improve the efficiency of order fulfillment tasks by allowing operators to access items at various heights without using ladders or manual picking methods.

  2. Ergonomics: The elevated platform or cabin reduces the need for operators to bend or stretch, minimizing physical strain and increasing productivity.

  3. High-Density Storage: Order pickers can access items stored at different levels in racks, maximizing vertical storage space in warehouses.

  4. Versatility: Order pickers are versatile and can handle various types of items, making them suitable for different industries.

  5. Maneuverability: Their ability to navigate tight spaces makes order pickers suitable for narrow aisle and compact storage environments.

  6. Reduced Product Damage: Precise handling and positioning of items minimize the risk of product damage during picking and placing operations.

Considerations:

  1. Lift Height: Choose an order picker with a lift height that matches your warehouse's rack height.

  2. Load Capacity: Ensure that the order picker's load capacity can handle the weight of your typical items.

  3. Aisle Width: Measure the aisle width to ensure the order picker can navigate aisles safely.

  4. Operator Training: Proper training is crucial for safe and efficient operation of order pickers.

  5. Maintenance: Regular maintenance is essential to keep the order picker in optimal working condition.

Forklift order pickers are valuable tools for optimizing order fulfillment processes in warehouses. When considering an order picker for your operation, assess your lift height requirements, space availability, and operational needs to choose the appropriate model and configuration.
