Lightning Pick LP Light Sled
Light-directed picking sled optimizes cluster picking efficiency
The horizontal sled enables several order cartons to be grouped together and travel on conveyor throughout a facility, stopping at each storage zone that contains items required by the orders on the sled. Software driven, a cluster feature allows users to build a group of orders and assign them to a specific sled with light modules attached.
As the sled enters each pick-to-light enabled storage zone, the operator scans the sled’s bar code. This triggers the required items’ light-enabled storage positions to illuminate and pick quantities to be displayed at each pick face location. The operator then distributes items as indicated by lights on the sled, then sends it on to the next zone until all orders are complete.
