PICK-BY-LIGHT: Illuminated order picking

Pick-by-Light is the ideal addition to the MIA I-Point Touch for manual order picking. Different items are stored in the bin with a flexibledivision of compartments. The loading device is delivered from the AKL to the workstation by the automatic transport system (goods-to-person). Using Pick-by-Light, a point of light ensures that the employee stores or removes the correct goods from the correct storage compartment. High storage density, increased efficiency, no picking errors.

Absolute certainty and precision

Pick-by-Light facilitates the identification of storage or removal positions with absolute certainty. It consists of a stationary high-power LED light source that uses a controllable mirror to create a light spot in the storage or removal compartment.

  • Incoming goods
  • Order picking
  • Consolidation / comaction
  • Stock control
  • Inventory control

Touch screen, scanner, light point & scale
