    Pick to Light

    With Pick to Light, your order picking becomes faster and more quality-assured

    Pick to Light is a clever Poka Yoke solution that ensures that you do not pick the wrong item or miss one. You do not need a picking list, and can instead pick with both hands simultaneously - it speeds up the order picking, reduces errors and lowers costs. It´s perfect for your e-commerce, production process or distribution center.

    What is Pick to light?

    Pick to Light, also called P2Light, is an intuitive order picking system, containing lights that streamline the picking process. The system is paperless, and quality-ensures that you do not pick the wrong item or miss picking one. A distinct light indication indicates what to pick and a sensor double-checks that you have picked the item. A simple and brilliant method.

    Pick to Light guides your employees in manual picking, sorting and assembly – it increases accuracy and efficiency, all while reducing costs. In other words, it is a perfect solution for e.g. e-commerce companies and distribution centers that wish to eliminate error picking.

    The system is based on Poka Yoke – a Japanese method for identifying and avoiding mistakes before they occur.

    How does Pick to light work?

    The software can be customized as needed, but in short, the principle is as follows:

    Each storage compartment has a lamp with a display, and at least one acknowledgment button. The process of starting a sequence can take place in many ways. The operator can, for example, scan an order number and the software then knows which items to pick.

    The system’s LEDs light up and illuminate the path with the purpose of guiding the operator to the article’s storage compartment. A display then indicates the amount of items to be picked. The withdrawal is afterwards confirmed with the acknowledgment button, or via the non-contact sensor when the operator’s hand is inserted into the box.

    Starting a sequence can also take place by sending information to the system from an RFID tag about a specific order, while delivering the recipe to be picked. This is just one of the many ways you can start a sequence in Pick2light. Thanks to a multicolored LED indicator on the picking displays, you can select several orders in parallel (so-called Multi-Order-Picking).

    With our LP352 Pick to light sensor, you can avoid errors during production and minimize the risk of possible consequential costs.

    What is the difference between Pick to light and Put to Light?

    Put to Light (Put2Light) is basically the opposite of Pick to Light. It is an outgoing system that guides the operator to the organization and sorting of several orders. Both Pick to light and Put to light provide higher ROI (Return of Investment) due to the clear visual indications, and the possibility to work with both hands at the same time makes the operator work faster. In the end, the result is higher quality, higher accuracy and less waste of time.

    What are the advantages of Pick to light compared to other systems?

    Apart from speeding up and quality assuring your order pick, you don’t have to use paper and lists. In addition, the training is very brief, since the Picking by Light system is very easy to understand. More benefits:

    • Easy to use Now you don’t have to spend several hours of training on operators to learn manual picking. With Pick to light, your employees grasp the system after 30-45 minutes.
    • Lower costs Traditional methods of order picking usually account for the largest costs in warehousing operations. With Pick to light, you get faster, easier and more accurate picking steps – and thus lower costs.
    • Flexible system integration Depending on the needs of your inventory business, you can integrate the software with an existing inventory management system (WMS), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) or other systems for more efficient order picking.

    Pick to Light is a very efficient solution to error proof assembly. Binar LP352 is a Pick sensor that comes with both RGB light, touchless acknowledge, digit display and function buttons. It is small and fits easily above any compartment. The two-digit display shows how many parts to pick. If the operator faulty tries to pick in the wrong compartment, the LED of the pick sensor turns red. Green button may be used instead of touchless acknowledge and blue function button may be used for replenishment alarm.

    The Binar system BPS, enables pick sensors to be light up in sequence, following the Standard Operating Procedure.

    Kit by the production line

    Move stock away from your production line to speed up your production flow. Kit your components with the help of Pick to Light on a component storage location next to it and deliver fully assembled component kits to the line JIT, just in time.

    Kit several orders simultaneously

    Go the stocking round once and pick materials for several orders simultaneously to further speed up your order picking. Pick all components from the warehouse with the help of Pick to Light and sort by order using Put to Light.

    Kitting is a very efficient method to increase value added time in assembly. The assembly operator gets all parts pre-picked in a sequence box and may then focus 100% on assembly. The picking operator pick parts for one or more work order at the time, placing those in sequence boxes. With Pick and Put to light this can be done fast, accurate and error proof. Paperless and both hands free greatly speeds up the process. The LP352 Pick sensor lights up at the first compartment where there is a part to be picked. The operator reads the amount of parts on the display and starts to pick these parts. The operator starts to distribute these parts into each box and at the same time acknowledge on the button at the box.

    Easier picking of O-rings

    Do not store O-rings tangled in a box. Hang O-rings on rackets, in order to more easily retrieve them and pick the right amount. Our smart Poka Yoke tool tells the operator when to pick and ensures that you have picked the correct type and amount. Smart huh?
