Put-to-Light

Light-directed order sortation.

The LP Put solution optimizes batch picking and high-speed sortation operations with a process sometimes called pick-to-light in reverse. With put-to-light, operators scan an item and the locations representing a store or customer needing that item illuminate. From straightforward scan-and-put workstations and put walls, to more complex sortation applications, LP Put offers options that maximize speed and accuracy.

Scan and Sort to Light.

Upon arrival at the put-to-light sorting area, each item is scanned. This triggers the light-directed picking modules to illuminate at every put location where the item is required to complete the order. Pickers distribute the items accordingly, and extinguish the light once the task is complete. After an order is filled, the light-directed picking module indicates that the order is complete and ready to ship.

Manage Large Numbers of SKUs.

Unlike systems that require lights at every pick face, put light modules are associated with sort locations (empty bins, totes or shelves) that correspond to individual orders. Lightning Pick’s unique put solution also offers lights on the opposite side of the put wall or station. When individual orders are completed, a light illuminates to alert packing personnel.

The Lightning Pick Advantage.

Put-to-light is a space-efficient and economical method of fast, high-quality order sortation for companies with a large number of SKUs. Lightning Pick’s put walls, put workstations and other put-to-light solutions offer major operational efficiency gains, additional capacity and increased visibility into order progress and productivity rates.
