Pick-to-Light and Put-to-Light Order Picking, Multichannel Fulfillment and Manufacturing Applications
The UltraLights pick to light family of products are designed for paperless picking / putting applications. This totally flexible family of pick-to-light and put-to-light systems is designed to improve operator picking productivity and throughput, increase order accuracy and extend order cut off times. The UltraLights family of products can be used as a standalone workstation integrated into an automated material handling system or used in an entire zone or facility.
Pick-to-Light Operations: The UltraLights family of products is designed to direct the operator to pick the correct SKU (or item) and quantity of the item.
Batch Picking with Pick-to-Light Operations: The UltraLights family of products allows an operator to pick multiple orders simultaneously. To batch pick, a pick light will indicate the exact SKU and the correct quantity to pick for that batch. Then Put Lights will show how many of that SKU to put into each order container. When the orders are complete, a task complete button is pushed and the next batch of orders is automatically queued for picking. Batch picking can be done using automated equipment, shelving, flow rack, carts or conveyors.
Put-to-Light Operations: Used in replenishment, kitting, order consolidation or the batch picking of orders, put-to-light is simply using light indicators to direct the picker to place the active or correct number of SKUs into the correct order container or storage location.
