Picking technologies are rapidly changing order fulfillment

Article: “An Inside Look at Picking Technologies”

Bernie McCabe, sales manager at Matthews Automation, was interviewed for the MMH article.

“Traditionally known as a point solution, pick-to-light is now a solution-based platform, says McCabe. Yes, times and warehouse demands have changed.

The pick-to-light lineup now includes light-directed picking and order replenishment as well as put-to-light and mobile carts. Low-volume RF picking is now in place along with build-to-light for manufacturing. Some systems don’t even have lights, relying on software and an order management tablet operating as a hub. Controls, servers and networks tie it all together.

That breadth, says McCabe, has supported expansion to use in a range of industries. His list includes home food delivery from meals to grocery store micro-fulfillment systems. Health care from pharmaceuticals to sundries and devices also now use pick-to-light platforms, adds McCabe.”
