Lightning Pick Technologies, providers of paperless picking systems including the number one selling Pick to Light solution in North America recently released Lightning Pick NW Series Wireless Pick to Light System. The NW Series is the first completely mobile Pick to Light technology in the market, introducing an expanded range of applications that can benefit from light-directed order picking.
Light-directed order fulfillment systems use light indicator modules mounted to shelving, flow rack, work benches, pallet rack or other storage locations. Whenever product is needed from a particular location, the right indicator turns on, drawing attention where action is required. The operator picks the product quantity displayed. The operator then confirms the pick by pressing the lighted button.
In 1998 Lightning Pick introduced duct-based Pick to Light technology to the United States. These cable-free light modules retrofit to a rack, shelf, cart or other material handling storage media. The new track-lighting style hardware lowered installation costs and is more flexible for system reconfiguration, maintenance, and expansion. Cable-free displays are the industry standard, but distributors still sought after a means of applying Pick to Light speed and accuracy to operations that did not have the infrastructure for mounted lights.
The LP Wireless Pick to Light System is ideal for any temporary or mobile product locations such as totes, bins, shipping containers, pallets on open floors and others. By placing the portable light module on or near the required product location it is immediately part of the Pick to Light operation. Bays and zones can leverage a combination of classic Lightning Pick track-mounted and wireless lights, all of which are easily configured within Lightning Pick software.
