All models of Lightning Pick’s AW Series light devices share several features which are making them an increasingly popular choice by manufacturing groups utilizing them for parts picking, kitting, assembly, sequencing and other production-related material handling processes.

AW Series light devices are the only lights in the marketplace that can be installed on both flat and curved surfaces, such as tube or pipe rack workstations (besides Lightning Pick’s SW or ‘small profile’ light series). Standard flat rack brackets or pipe clamps are available (some applications may require custom mounting materials depending on the project).

The AW2038FE (Photo-Eye) model shares these capabilities plus offers a distinctive additional one – totally hands-free pick confirmation. Like all Lightning Pick light device series, the large ‘indicator’ LED (which directs operators to the correct product/part locations) is also the action confirmation button. However, the AW2038PE also has a reflective-style photo-eye sensor which confirms activity when an operator breaks the plane of light. The sensor’s range is adjustable and easily configured to meet specific application requirements. Unit dimensions are 6”L x 2.5”H x 1.25”D.

The AW2038PF has many applications. As seen below, besides optimizing traditional parts bin locations they can be a great method of ensuring the right tools are being selected from the tray for the active job.

Lightning Pick’s Photo-Eye Light furnishes manufacturers with the quality and speed of light-directed operations and also removes the button push confirmation some lean operations perceive as wasted motion.
