Put an end to long search and training time! pickFinder visually guides the picker safe and simple through the process. The LEDs show him where and how many to pick. It is possible to either use single- or multi-order-picking –just as you need it!
Reduce travel time and increase your productivity. By displaying different colors on the LED stripes several orders can be executed at the same time. Each color represents one order – the number of LEDs the amount to be picked.
While picking the worker receives direct feedback to every process step. Done picks are displayed by dimmed LEDs and errors are shown immediately by red blinking lights (wrong tray/wrong amount). In this way, the worker can easily track each step and knows at any time what to do next.
On the user interface all interactions within the system can be retraced in real-time. Processes become transparent and can be optimized. Due to automativ reordering material cannot run out. The current status of orders is always visible. Also up- and downstream processes can be synchronised. And the best part: all data belong to the customer and he decides, how to use it.
Any desired layout – also for GLT/pallets!
All sizes of boxes (KLT, GLT, pallets) can be used as the sensor range is nearly 10m! The width of the storage locations can be adjusted independently via user interface – also subsequently. No hardware-modification necessary!
You need guidance of the placement of material? No Problem! pickFinder can also display e.g. material replenishment or placement on picking trolleys. Instead of location for picking, pickFinder then shows where to place the material. The placement can also be confirmed in different ways. More about Put-to-Light
Current order status
The status of orders can be displayed in real-time on a tablet PC. So, the worker is always informed, where parts are missing.
It is possible to reorder material or report any errors.
The use of a tablet PC is optional – it serves as an additional tool to assure high quality.
Choosing multiple orders
Leave your worker the choice, how many orders to process at the same time, or assign a fixed number of orders automatically. It’s your choice.
For the purpose of traceability all order statuses can be seen via the user interface. Achieve more transparency for customers and workers!
The storage locations/width can be adjusted autonomously via the user interface. Therefore, you can use KLT, GLT or pallets and also change the layout subsequently without any handware modifications.
Make your data visible – we provide you the appropriate reports to optimize your processes even more.
E.g. stocks, turnover rates, error sources, …
Due to the horizontal sensor, picks are detected and confirmed automatically. No additional process step is needed. After every pick one LED above the related container dims. In this way the worker can always see, how many parts still have to be picked
Nobody is keen on making mistakes. If it happens however, the worker receives feedback immediately and has the chance to fix it.
Gesture menu - Pause location
pickFinder Sensor gives you the opportunity to interact with the system directly at the rack – without needing any other device. Breaking through the sensor longer time activates the gesture menu, in which up to 6 functions can be chosen. Leaving the sensor executes the chosen function.
One of many options in the gesture menu is the pause function. When activated, the pick detection for this location is paused. Now e.g. containers can be changed or material refilled.
Gesture menu - Order material
If a worker discovers little stock of a location, he can order new material directly at the rack – without any other device. pickFinder forwards the requests to the customer’s system.
Another option is the determination of a minimum stock level. But sometimes there is worlds between theory and practice.
Choose one or more orders via the scanner. Guidance to the correct location via LED stripes above storage location. Further instructions on scanner (if implemented). Pick of material. Confirmation by scan.
The best Pick-by-Light is not helpful when material is stored in the wrong location. Therefore pickFinder Scanner can also be used as Put-to-Light system. Hence it is also possible to monitor stocks and automate transport orders.
Use pickFinder Scanner for stocktaking. Due to the stocktaking function differences between target and actual stock can be identified, reported and corrected.
Material needs special attention?
Notification windows give you the possibility to provide your workers important information at the right time. So e.g. danger warnings or special material properties (like ‘material consists of more than one part’; ‘material must stay cooled’).
You have special requirements regarding process or functions?
We are pleased to implement these together with you. Via software we can also implement them subsequently.
Small parts or bulk material
When the picker arrives at the correct location, a first amount of the material is put on the scale. The sale shows the difference to the debit amount. Now the picker can fine-tune. If the scale reached the correct weight, the picker can confirm the pcik on the input device (Tablet/Scanner).
The picker confirms the current position (location) via tablet PC or scanner. As soon as the correct weight was placed on the scale, this position can be confirmed on the display. Stock and picking lists will be updated in real-time.
If a wrong location is scanned or entered by the picker, the system gives visual feedback immediately. The picker is informed right away and can correct his choice.
Combination of confirmation options
If the amounts to be picked vary highly, a combination of scale and sensor/scanner is recommended. So, bigger amounts can be picked and confirmed by scale/scanner, all other positions can be picked and confirmed efficiently by sensor.
