"We are very pleased to receive the award 'Product of the Year 2023' in the category 'Handling, Assembly and Production' and would like to thank the readers of INDUSTRIAL Production for their votes and trust," said Peter Lambrecht, Global Head of Sales Logistics Solutions at SSI SCHAEFER.

With parallel picking in four order totes, this can achieve a picking performance of 800 picks per hour."

With the Advanced Pick Station, SSI SCHAEFER pursues the goal of creating 'feel-good workplaces' so that employees can pick extremely efficiently and with high quality. "To meet this goal, we are implementing a special picking station as part of the ergonomics@work!® program that enables employees to perform at their best and significantly improves ergonomics at the workplace. Motion processes such as lifting and carrying are supported by ergonomic pulling and pushing, and workflows and heights are optimized," explains Michael Steingruber, Global Head of Product Line Automation at SSI SCHAEFER. "The Institute for Ergonomics & Work Science at the Technical University of Darmstadt (IAD) has examined the ergonomic design of the workstation and confirmed its health-friendly mode of operation."
