Automatic Storage and Retrieval

Breathe Technologies’ create 3D Shuttle Warehouse Systems that provide you with rapid order picking solutions that are ideal for distribution centres handling large product ranges.

These warehouse systems use a mobile cart system (Shuttles) moving within a three-dimensional automated pallet racking system to automate the handling of a large variety of plastic crates, trays, totes, dollies, kegs and corrugated cases.

We’ll design and implement a 3D Shuttle Warehouse Systems tailored to your precise order picking requirements that:

  • Provides fast fulfilment and shorter processing times
  • Meets the requirements of smaller order-processing windows
  • Improves space utilisation
  • Is easy to install and maintain, resulting in rapid ROI
  • Provides the best inventory throughput ratio
  • Are modular and can be scaled to meet need
  • Increase safety, especially when handling bulky materials

The SQP process that we have designed with this mechanisation is the only one in the industry that runs like this, ensuring we can operate with really high levels of efficiency and accuracy.

Stacker crane

Breathe Technologies create sophisticated Gantry Crane Warehouse Systems which use X-axis and Y-axis actuators to precisely move to any position in your storage area and a Z-axis actuator to lift items.

We’ll design and implement a Gantry Crane Warehouse System for you that:

  • Optimises space The compact design ensures optimal space utilisation
  • Delivers transformative efficiency and accuracy – Gantry robots have a high work envelope and intelligent replenishment routing. This drives productivity by minimising the number of movements and eliminating double handling
  • Supports flexible operation – The system will automatically adjust to your peak picking periods without increasing output times. As order lines grow, the systems will pick more totes per movement

Breathe Technologies has enabled us to double the number of orders we fulfil; that’s a 200% increase in productivity gains. The solution has dramatically improved our ability to scale up our business rapidly.

Robotic Layer Picker Warehouse Systems

Breathe Technologies will deliver Robotic Item and Case Pick Warehouse Systems so you can use robots to pick the required volume of units and stack them effectively on a pallet.

These systems can significantly reduce load form variation and ensure they are optimised and stable for shipment.

Each unit can process up to 600 cases per hour, freeing up employee resource and avoiding repetitive, strenuous work.

Breathe Technologies’ software has enabled us to treble the number of orders we can fulfil.

Automated Warehouse Picking Systems

Automate your picking processes using tailored systems, powerful software and expert services

Diverse Warehouse Automation Technology And Robotics

Automating your order Picking processes ensures you can achieve transformative productivity and efficiency gains.

As we are independent, Breathe Technologies can design, configure and maintain a wide range of goods-to-person (GTP) and person-to-goods (PTG) systems tailored to your precise needs.

Whether it’s warehouse automation technology or robotics, we’ll optimise your order picking systems using the Pick Module of our Warehouse Management Software and provide full lifecycle support through a range of specialist services.

Warehouse Picking System
  • Achieve faster order picking rates
  • Reduce errors

 

  • Optimise replenishment and eliminate waste
  • Support employees

 

Voice Activated, Pick and Put-to-Light Warehouse Systems

Breathe Technologies can design and implement a wide range of Person-to-Goods or zoned-based order picking systems that direct operators to varying locations within your warehouse for fulfilment.

Whilst Person-to-Goods is a more traditional approach to order picking, when combined with Breathe Technologies’ software suite, we can create warehouse automation solutions that ensure faster deliveries, fewer errors and more satisfied customers.

Each system minimises walk time and optimises order picking strategies, including batch/wave picking. When combined with Breathe Technologies’ Pick software module, these systems will deliver a high ROI for you by:

  • Increasing efficiency and productivity (where up to 50%+ of operating costs could reside in your warehouse’s order picking function)
  • Optimising space to increase picking speeds and capacity
  • Reducing the possibility of returns
  • Improving order picking accuracy to drive down error rates and wasted time
  • Delivering faster fulfilment and therefore higher customer service levels
  • Flowing real-time order picking data to your warehouse systems for reporting, decision making and business intelligence

Examples of the types of Person-to-Goods order picking systems Breathe Technologies can create for you include:

Warehouse Order Picking Software

Use this Warehouse Management Software module to:

  • Deliver significant efficiency gains by generating intelligent picking instructions
  • Achieve 99.5+% picking accuracy
  • Deliver a 300% increase in picking rates
  • Continuously improve picking processes by monitoring data and re-factoring based on fluctuations and changes
  • Increase productivity by optimising picking routes for employees and robots
  • Prioritise order picking to meet service level KPIs (same day/next day delivery, Amazon Prime ready etc)
  • Integrate your Picking function with marketplaces, ERP and order management systems

Warehouse Order Picking Software Module

Optimise your picking process to improve picking rates, whilst reducing errors and eliminating waste.

Our Picking software module will unlock transformative benefits by optimising goods-to-person (GTP) and person to goods (PTG) automated and semi-automated picking systems.

It will help maximise the number of orders you can process for fulfilment and ensure you meet your internal customer service level agreements.

Advanced APIs mean the module fully integrates with automation controls PLC/RMS and any e-commerce marketplace. The productivity gains delivered will help you avoid costly performance breaches.
