Innovative Picking Technologies, Inc.’s (IPTI) Pick-MAX products and Ixonia, Wisconsin location are now part of Lightning Pick, a Matthews Automation Solutions brand. Pick-MAX joins the Lightning Pick MW, JW, AW, SW and NW product families of pick-to-light, put-to-light, automated picking carts and other order fulfillment execution technologies.
Like all Lightning Pick light module series, Pick-MAX offers easy system installation, reconfiguration and maintenance. Available models include the Pick-MAX2 that features a 4-digit quantity display, and Pick-MAX Micro which offers a compact, 2-digit display design.
Energy Efficient for Mobile Applications.
Pick-MAX lights are purposefully engineered for optimum energy efficiency, making them ideal for mobile, battery-based applications like batch picking carts or cluster picking light sleds. The resulting increase in battery life reduces downtime needed for recharging.
Multiple Product Options.
Pick-MAX hardware is offered as a complete solution — delivered with Lightning Pick software. Plus, support for current Pick-MAX software installations will continue. Pick-MAX hardware’s reliability and features are also popular with system integrators delivering custom solutions that deploy their own software or controls.
Pick-MAX hardware integrates with Lightning Pick’s exclusive Watch-Me system, allowing pick-to-light or put-to-light systems to track individual pickers without the need for zone scan logins or assignments. This patented option guarantees picker accountability and enables zoneless picking technologies like LP Zone Free.
- Available 12-digit alphanumeric Order Control Module (OCM, also called a bay display) that presents the current order or tote number being processed in each bay.
- Modular, snap-in BUS design allows very fast installation, quick reconfiguration of pick locations, and easy system expansion.
- Bright and clear displays can illuminate in seven different colors.
