About Pick Modules

A pick module is an engineered racking system that integrates several pieces of material handling and storage equipment. The goal is to consolidate space and move products efficiently through a facility. Some pick module systems are capable of fulfilling over one hundred thousand orders per day, processing millions of units in a week.

Used Pick Module Systems

The idea behind a pick module is to optimize flow efficiency. Palletized loads move, using gravity, before being broken down into cartons and pieces. After this stage, products are sent to pick areas and, finally, shipped to the customer.

A pick module can be designed for automated pick applications, manual operations or a combination of both. This helps reduce walking time and can help save on labor costs. These systems leverage several different racking systems as well as other material handling solutions. This can include everything from pallet flow racks and mezzanines to carton flow racking and conveyors.

Things to Consider Before Purchasing

A pick module is an often complex and expensive addition to any warehouse. While they can save time and enhance productivity, you’ll find some key considerations to keep in mind when shopping for the right equipment.

What Do You Need?

Determining your storage and picking requirements is the first step in selecting the appropriate pick module system. Consider the following aspects:

  • Space Utilization: Pick modules can take up a lot of space. While these systems consolidate equipment, they can still cover a large footprint. Always make sure you have enough room for both the pick module and everyday worker and lift truck traffic.
  • Inventory Characteristics: A pick module design should enhance your current workflows and meet the demands of your inventory. Always evaluate your inventory needs when designing your pick module system. Do you need to manage palletized products? Cartons or boxes? This can help determine what equipment you need.
  • Automation: If you have an existing warehouse management system that leverages automation, you want to make sure this software/workflow is compatible with your pick module installation.

Your Budget

Consider your budgetary constraints when building a pick module. Keep in mind the following:

  • Quality and Durability: Pick modules are a big investment. As such, you want to source equipment that will last. Considering used equipment from a reputable supplier is a great choice if you’re looking to save but still purchase reliable equipment.
  • Installation and Maintenance Costs: Factor in the costs associated with installation, including labor, equipment, and any necessary permits. Additionally, consider ongoing maintenance and safety inspection costs to keep the system in optimal condition.
  • Scalability and Future Expansion: Assess if the pick module can accommodate future growth and expansion. It may be more cost-effective to invest in a scalable system that can be easily extended or reconfigured as your storage needs evolve.
