Pick to light

Pick to Light is an efficient method for improving and speeding up the order picking process.   The Pick to Light technology makes use of a signaling lamp. During the order picking process, the lamp signals the exact location where an item, or items, should be picked up.   Pick to Light creates an efficient order picking route and eliminates error, preventing the need for expensive re-processing or loss of customers.

Sort to light

Sort-to-light (put-to-light) is a technique to simplify the sorting process. The goal is to reduce walking distances. Lights on the module inform the operator where to place an article. Optionally, the module can be equipped with a display to show how many units have to be sorted out.

An example of an application

After order picking, items must be sorted per customer. The operator scans the item, a lit lamp then indicates the correct location assigned to the customer.

  • Low costs, short payback period.
  • Flexible, scalable, expandable.
  • Easy, efficient.
  • Accurate, registration of manco’s.
Together with your organization, we look for the right method to optimize sorting processes. We can integrate the sort-to-light solution with an existing WMS or ERP system.

Sort-to-light can be applied to existing shelving or cabinets. Anew wall or frame can also be made.

Hadi System

It’s a known issue in every sorting installation: the detection and identification of the items to be sorted.

A variety of systems addressing this problem have appeared on the market, but one system beats all the others: the Hexapole Article Detection and Identification (Hadi) System.

Hexapole developed the Hadi System specifically for products that lie flat. The system is capable of detecting items as small as 2x2cm or even partially transparent items.

The system can be placed on existing trays, and Hadi® has been known for years as a very reliable system, having an error rate of less than 0.01%!
