Every day, production and distribution operations must sort large quantities of inventory contained in cartons, cases, totes, bags, or stuffed envelopes. As service level agreements become more demanding, the pressures to perform at or above expectations grow. These realities along with higher order volumes, shorter processing times, and rising operational costs create a compelling business case for automated sortation.

Pick & Put to Light Systems

Easily visible lights located directly on the storage slot indicate from where the next item is to be picked. A display signals the number of items to be retrieved. After retrieval, the order picker acknowledges the process by pressing a button and the display switches off. All information is exchanged in real-time with the master materials management or warehouse management system. Armstrong Demaitc’s Pick & Put to Light systems use light displays to direct operators to specific stock locations.
