A-Frame Order Re-Circulation is Impossible MYTH (FALSE)

A-Frame Order Re-Circulation The myth A-Frame order re-circulation is impossible is completely untrue. It’s impractical to re-circulate a pick-to-belt order back into the A-Frame. However, it’s simple to re-circulate a pick-to-tote or shipper A-Frame model order.

Why would you want to re-circulate a tote or shipper back into the A-Frame? The major reason is it will eliminate any human intervention. If an item didn’t dispense into the order it’s flagged by the A-Frame controls and automatically re-routed via conveyor back into the A-Frame where any anomalies are corrected.

This is especially helpful when you have the clear majority of your picks quantities within a “normal” range. Instead of slowing down every order’s throughput because of the anomaly order, the normal range of items in a line are dispensed and then re-circulated back into the A-Frame to complete the order. This is just one of the reasons pick-to-tote or shipper A-Frames are usually more than twice as fast and efficient as pick-to-belt models.
