Worker take 2 or more parts

Hello I want to simulate a worker that takes 2 parts from a buffer and carries them to another part of the factory. I assign a capacity of two to the worker but it continues take only 1 part. What can I do in order to the fact that the worker takes 2 parts?

you need to set a dwell time (e.g. 10 seconds) in the tab exit Strategy (carry part away).. Then the worker will wait this time for the requested number of parts.

And how I establish the number of parts the worker has to take?

you need to set it as the capacity of the worker; the dwell time needs to be long enough to collect these number of parts
