The Raymond High Capacity Orderpicker stood atop its competitors and received a gold award in the “actuators, motors and drives” category in Plant Engineering’s 2023 Product of the Year program, which recognizes new products that advance innovation in the manufacturing industry.

In a news release on July 25, Raymond noted that the High Capacity Orderpicker works with the company’s suite of high capacity offerings, “… [optimizing] operators’ storage capacity without increasing their footprint.

“We are honored to receive this Product of the Year recognition from Plant Engineering,” said Shannon Curtis, product manager for Class II, ZaP and iADS at The Raymond Corporation. “This affirms the hard work our team puts into alleviating our customers’ operational challenges in the warehouse and encourages them to continue thinking of new ideas to best serve them.”

The orderpicker features an elevated height of 456 inches, allowing for increased rack storage access to 11% more pick slots, the company said. The increased height allows customers to optimize storage capacity for more usable space and improved SKU count without increasing a facility’s overall footprint.
