Pick to Light

Light-directed order fulfillment systems use light indicator modules mounted to shelving, flow rack, work benches pallet rack or other storage locations.

Whenever product is needed from a particular location, the right indicator turns on, drawing attention where action is required. The operator picks the product quantity displayed. The operator then confirms the pick by pressing the lighted button.

Where does Pick to Light apply?

Pick to Light works best in a piece pick or broken case pick environment where there are high density order picking areas. Often a general rule is the 80/20 rule – if 80% of a distributors item level picking volume comes from 20% of their SKE base, then Pick to Light is an ideal solution to optimise productivity and accuracy.

Pick to Light can easily be configured to add performance and efficiency to many popular order picking methodologies, including Order, Wave, Zone and Batch picking techniques. Variations on light-directed technologies such as Put to Light or Pack to Light are ideal for high-speed sortation processes, where a batch of orders is sorted to individual customer orders, or used to maximise throughput for retail store order distribution.
