Pick & Put to Light Systems

Pick-to-Light and Put-to-Light systems use light displays to direct operators to product locations and order requirements, increasing picking speeds and reducing error rates.

These systems automate traditional picking processes for a more efficient, lower-cost solution.

Pick-to-Light and Put-to-Light systems are designed for distribution operations that need to pick and ship items in mixed product containers (or totes).

After the operator has either “picked” or “put” the item from or into the container, they verify the transaction by pressing a button, and the light display switches off.

All picking data is captured in real time with our warehouse management software.

Our Pick-to-Light and Put-to-Light process works contrary to standard warehouse operations and is “goods-to-man” instead of traditional “man-to-goods” operations.

Instead of picking a product from a designated location, operators are putting product to a pre-defined location and this process is guided by visual displays.

  • Easy-to-use automated picking system
  • Flexible online order processing and exact online stock management
  • Leaner automated picking processes
  • Shorter throughput times
  • Fewer errors with a visible display of picking orders

The automated picking process:

Pick-to-Light and Put-to-Light systems are able to achieve high picking speeds and low error rates by automating the traditionally manual picking process.

Advanced Pick-to-Light and Put-to-Light systems and conveyor technology optimise your material flow processes.

Efficient picking from bulk stock:

The Pick-to-Light and Put-to-Light systems include:

  • Inbound master container (or tote) sorter
  • Racking with light displays (that direct the distribution of product to various locations)
  • Outbound conveyor (that transport filled containers out of the module)
