Pick by Light
Pick by Light is a semi-automated, paperless picking system. With the use of Pick by Light, conveyor systems, and our proven material flow control software WAMAS®, you not only optimize your picking processes but you can also significantly reduce your logistics costs at the same time. The software is parameterizable and can be easily configured to match your requirements. It can be used in combination with SSI SCHAEFER software systems and also as a separate picking system within an existing warehouse management system.
The Pick by Light system from SSI SCHAEFER enables you to almost entirely eliminate picking errors. Every storage compartment features a signal lamp with a display and at least one acknowledgment button. When the picking container reaches the picking location, the lamp illuminates to show employees the correct compartment to pick from and the display indicates the correct number of articles to be removed. The removal is then confirmed with an acknowledgment button.
There are three general systems:
Pick by Light: one pick face and one illuminated acknowledgment button per picking location
Pick by Light Basic: one illuminated acknowledgment button per picking location, one central display (Pick face) for multiple picking locations
Put to Light: uses the Pick by Light principle. However, the specified quantity is not picked from the location displayed but rather the specified number of item pieces are placed in this location.
