Pick By Light Systems
Automation Revolution develops and manufactures custom designed Pick by Light systems, sometimes called also Pick to Light systems for production or logistics stock areas.
Pick by Light systems use light displays to direct operators to specific stock locations in the production or logistic area. Each components or product location can have an individual numeric or alphanumeric display with a light, an acknowledgement button, and a digital readout for indicating quantity. The flexibility of the configurations, allows fewer or more simplified displays in order to reduce the total cost.
In a standard Pick by Light system, the picking sequence starts at the beginning of a zone where the operator scans a bar coded address label attached to the shipping carton or tote. The display shows the operator which products to pick and how many of each. The operator then confirms picks via acknowledgement buttons.
Benefits of Pick by Light Systems:
- shorter throughput times
- lean processes
- less errors of the operator
- cost savings
- increased customer satisfaction
- faster ability to supply
- transparency of the process
