Decant workstation

Safe and efficient workstations you can trust

The decant workstation is the quartermaster that helps automatic storage and retrieval systems work more efficiently. It’s your inbound loading point, where items or inner packs are removed from their original shipping containers and placed into totes – ready for automated storage. The decanting process supports inventory accuracy, operational productivity, and high-density storage. What’s more, our workstation set-up can help your operators stay healthy and productive.

Operators in optimal position

In fact, when designing our workstations, everything is done to ensure operators can do their jobs in an optimal position to decant shipping packages. We’ve made them height adjustable and as ergonomically efficient as possible. The result: fewer physical challenges for your employees, as well as a fast, smooth picking process.

Our workstations can also instruct operators on how best to (re)compartmentalise empty product carriers. This process allows for the human touch, as the operator can confirm or overwrite suggestions made by the system. The compartment lay-outs are based on two, four or eight positions per product carrier.

Damage prevention

After decanting, the weight and height of the product carrier are checked to prevent overly large or heavy items entering the system. A weighing scale ensures such products cannot damage your conveyors and storage systems.

A range of benefits

Our decant workstations offer a number of benefits, including:
