Layer pick is a method of order picking used in warehousing and distribution centers where an entire layer of products is picked and moved at once, instead of individual items. This method is typically used for high-volume and fast-moving products to increase efficiency and productivity.

Layer picking is a material handling process where a specific layer of products is picked and assembled onto a pallet at one time, instead of manually selecting individual cases. Layer picking can greatly increase operational efficiency and reduce labor costs, making it an ideal solution for high-volume mixing or staging applications.

If you’re interested in optimizing your warehouse or distribution center, layer picking could be the perfect solution for you. With the ability to assemble customized combinations of products quickly and safely onto a single pallet, layer picking can improve supply chain efficiency and reduce physical labor. 

A picker forklift, also known as an order picker, is a type of forklift used in warehousing and distribution centers for order picking operations. It is designed to lift the operator up to the height of the product or shelf, allowing them to easily access and pick items from high shelves or racks.

Picker forklifts are often used in conjunction with conveyor systems or other automated equipment to increase efficiency and productivity.

An order picker is a type of forklift designed for order picking, while a traditional forklift is a more general material handling equipment. The main difference between the two is that an order picker lifts the operator to the level of the product, making it easier to pick items from high shelves or racks.

An example of a layer picking operation could be the picking of an entire pallet layer of a specific product, such as boxes of a certain size or weight, and placing them onto a pallet or into a container.

Layered pallets refer to pallets that are stacked with multiple layers of goods or products. Each layer may contain the same or different products, and the layers are typically separated by a layer pad or separator to prevent damage or shifting during transport.

Layered pallets are commonly used in industries such as manufacturing, warehousing, and logistics, where products need to be efficiently transported and stored.

What is a layer picker?

A layer picker is picking equipment used to pick cases in layers and move them to a conveyor or stack them on pallets, typically used in industries with large SKU lot sizes like the beverage or food industry.

Side Press Splitter – The Advanced Alternative

The “Side Press Splitter” is the alternative to layer picker forklift attachment that can divide stacks of products in a safe and efficient manner. It can also be used for pallet exchanging by gently pressing and lifting the products to allow the operator to change the pallet underneath. The product is lifted using two platforms that block and lift it from the pallet, and it is then transported and released on the new pallet.

The pressure is adjustable 

The Side Press Splitter features an adjustable pressure system that allows the operator to control and adjust the pressure using a pressure gauge or a pressure selector preset on four positions. This innovative solution applies a delicate pressure to the load, thanks to a black-mousse, which can handle fragile products weighing up to 3,300 pounds.

Discover the Advantages of Side Press Splitter

While layer picker forklift attachment have their advantages, the Side Press Splitter, very similar to the Mobile Pallet Changer, is a superior solution for dividing layers:

The Benefits of Using a Layer Picker for Pallet Changing

1. Space-saving design

The Side Press Splitter is a space-saving solution that requires less floor space than a layer picker forklift attachment. It can be easily moved and positioned within a facility, allowing for greater flexibility and efficiency in material handling operations, instead of a forklift.

2. Faster and easier to use

The Side Press Splitter is faster and easier to use than a forklift with an attachment. It can change pallets in as little as 30 seconds, reducing downtime and increasing productivity. In addition, it requires minimal training to operate, making it a user-friendly option for material handling operations.

3. Non-damaging to products

The Side Press Splitter is a non-damaging solution for handling products. It uses a gentle, side-to-side pressing motion to transfer products from one pallet to another, eliminating the risk of product damage. This is particularly important for fragile or high-value products that require careful handling.
