In 2007 Vanderlande already realised that workstation design was becoming a critical success factor in warehouse automation. From that time on, Vanderlande has cooperated closely with TNO, Europe’s largest Institute for technological and strategic research and consultancy with expertise in ergonomics.
This resulted in the successful launch of the PICK@EASE high-performance ergonomic order picking workstation. TNO researched the actual product on its ergonomic and performance merits during a series of real-life operator tests held at our Innovation Centre in Veghel, the Netherlands. With the “Excense Suit”, sustainable performance in a given situation can be analyzed immediately. With the Virtual Reality “Ergomix”, it can be tested how certain types of workstations impact sustainable performance.
Based on the same principles, Vanderlande and TNO extended the @EASE workstation family into the Packing area and developed the high-performance ergonomic packing workstation PACK@EASE. Our RECEIVE@EASE workstations facilitate efficient and ergonomic receiving of items, while CLEAR@EASE workstations provide the same ergonomics benefits for housekeeping and problems solving functions in an automated material handling system.
The @EASE workstation range comes with a broad set of functions, value added services and options, geared towards specific warehouse process requirements and employee motiviation.
Our RECEIVE@EASE workstations facilitate efficient and ergonomic repacking/receiving of items (from cartons) into totes.
PICK@EASE is a family of ergonomic workstations that offer a wide range of capacities (100 – 1.000 orderlines / hour) incl. Value Added Services
The high-performance ergonomic packing workstation PACK@EASE increases sustainable productivity and packing accuracy and reduces product damage, while creating an ergonomically sound work environment for operators.
