Orfit Industries Boosts Order Picking Speed with VLMs
Orfit Industries is a Belgium-based company that produces thermoplastic medical devices and distributes them to 100 countries worldwide.
Orfit Industries was seeing increased growth that it worried it could not handle operationally with its manual system. The traditional shelving system took up an excessive amount of space, was not efficient and was prone to picking errors.
The company bought seven Modula vertical lift modules (VLMs) and immediately saw benefits in space saving, efficiency and accuracy without adding more personnel. Efficiency alone has increased nearly six-fold – from 40 lines an hour to 220 lines.
