Introducing the K.Handle Layer Picker Product Portfolio
available in Robot, Gantry, and Hoist
The K.Handle Layer Picker Robot (previously known as the Flex-R) offers fast, flexible, scalable and reliable handling. Suitable for many logistics operations, this standalone unit allows for up to eight pick and drop positions.
The Gantry LayerPicker is an overhead solution that allows for high volume mixing and staging. This system is operational in both ambient and deep-freeze environments, down to -19°F (−28°C).
The K.Handle Hoist provides a simple, yet reliable de-palletizing and picking functionality. The Layer Picker Hoist incorporates a minimal footprint and adaptable design that operates on two levels, lifting pallets to the working mezzanine level.
Answer: Layer picking is an order picking process that is utilized for high-volume staging or mixing centers. In the past, this process was done manually or via special forklift attachments. In today’s smart warehouse, the layer picking process is now fully automated to reduce human error, increase pick accuracy, and fulfill orders at higher speeds.
Question: What is the Layer Picker’s lifting capacity?
Answer: The lifting capacity varies across the Layer Picker family of products. The standalone Robot can lift 825 lbs per layer, while the Gantry and Hoist can lift 150+ lbs per layer more than the standalone unit.
Robot: Up to 825 lbs per layer (375 kg)
Gantry: Up to 992 lbs per layer (450 kg)
Hoist: Up to 992 lbs per layer (450 kg)
