These systems use specific light displays to direct order selectors to product locations. They increase productivity & accuracy by making it easier for operators to know which products to pick and how many.
Often used in picking operations where large quantities of SKUs can be picked efficiently and simultaneously, this technology assists in ‘putting’ picked items to the right order tote or shipping container.
Vision Picking systems use augmented reality technology to direct a picker to the exact location of a product using wearable technology. The system both guides the employee on an optimal route and provides many of the same benefits as pick-to-light or voice-directed picking. They can be adopted in nearly any warehouse setting without structural modifications and offers 100% error-free picking with minimal training time required.
Radio Frequency (RF) Scanning allows pickers to indicate which products are being associated with a particular order and can support a variety of picking methods. This handheld device communicates with your facility’s warehouse execution system or warehouse management system to ensure the operator is in the proper pick location, then provides SKU information to the picker to inform them on which product to select along with the quantity. Once the order is selected, the next order is sent to the picker remotely. This technology also can assist with cycle counts and put-away/replenishment processes.
