East Granby, CT -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/09/2014 -- The PTL (Pick to Light and Put to Light) systems are picking solutions of the “operator to materials” kind that ensure high output (up to 500 - 600 picks per hour). The operator moves along the shelves (dynamic and with multiple accumulation depth) and picks the whole amount of materials required for a batch of orders through signals that appear on light monitors. Practically speaking, the picker immediately subdivides the materials in different cartons, each of which is associated to a picking list that is being filled.
Pick to Light systems may be used in the following conditions:
- Smaller articles
- High turn stock articles
- Accepting limited operator flexibility (the number is defined beforehand, to assign the areas).
