Sorting and picking support systems

PRODUCT

DESCRIPTION

 
Light Systems (LS) solutions are modern picking systems for logistic processes. They use the fastest method of bay finding – human sight. The system displays information for employees engaged in multiple operations. The displays show the required quantity of goods to be picked from or placed in a location associated with a light module.

The LS system can interface with any superordinate management system (e.g. any ERP – Enterprise Resource Planning or WMS – Warehouse Management System systems) or provide independent support for picking systems. One of the most important advantages of the system is the possibility of completing processes without other devices engaging the hands and attention of the employee.

Primary applications of the LS system:
• Quick picking systems – Pick To Light model
• Quick sorting systems – Put To Light systems
• Mixed and individual systems.

Pick to Light “human-to-item” picking
In this solution, storage units with goods are placed in picking channels marked with digital indicators. The channels are grouped into sub-zones. When a storage unit (pallet, box, container, etc.) appears in the sub-zone, the displays in channels show the quantity of goods to be picked. Several operators can pick an order for one picking unit. During the picking process, single items, collective packages and even whole units can be picked. Picking channels can be fed the goods automatically or manually.

Benefits of the Pick to Light system:
• Very short time of induction for the operator
• Intuitive operation
• Reduced rate of errors
• Work monitoring by supervising operators
• Shorter order completion (line picking) time.

Put to Light “item-to-human” picking
The solution is used at picking (mixer) stations for large quantities of medium-rotation goods. The picking involves the transfer of goods from the source unit (container or pallet) to one or more target units indicated by display(s). The quantity of goods to be transferred is also shown on the display or PC form associated with the picking station. During the picking process, single items, collective packages and even whole units can be picked.

Benefits of the Put to Light system:
• Very short time of induction for the operator
• Intuitive operation
• Reduced rate of errors
• Work monitoring by supervising operators
• Shorter order completion (line picking) time.
