Picking at Laser Speed…More Efficient/Less Costly Paperless Picking

Sept. 1, 2006
IPTI, Inc., one the industry’s leading innovators in pick-to-light technology, introduces Laser-Pick™, a revolutionary system that brings “Pick to Light” picking technology to any operation without the limitations and cost of standard pick-to-light systems. Rather than paying for expensive electronics at each pick/put location, Laser-Pick™ utilizes high intensity laser beams aimed at special reflectors that visibly light up like a light bulb to direct pickers to pick/put locations. The highly visible green laser beam can service thousands of pick or put locations and can be utilized where pick-to-light can’t at a substantially lower cost per SKU for fast ROI. The system, an industry first, utilizes the proven IPTI pick-to-light hardware and software backbone. Because the laser beam guides the picker, reflectors can be put anywhere without the limitations of wiring runs. For operations that must deal with changes in their layouts this approach is ideal. As with all IPTI picking systems, Laser-Pick™ handles multiple interfaces including wireless, Ethernet and RS-232 to manage the pick/put process. Laser-Pick™ is an excellent companion to voice recognition and RF Terminal based systems, reducing picking errors common to those systems while increasing productivity at the same time.
