The Pick-to-Light and Put-to-Light solutions use a signal
display with touch sensor and bright multi-colored lamp for highly efficient user interaction
Robust and EMC-resilient electronic compartment displays (DPD) are installed above the individual storage
locations in the pick and put areas, and are connected with the production information system of the plant via a
junction box and the integrated u-remote remote I/O system. When the compartment displays light up, the picker
is guided through a sequence of steps requiring confirmation within a precisely defined work process. This
avoids errors and raises productivity by more than 50 percent.
For Pick-to-Light solutions, the compartment displays are equipped with four numerical, digital, seven-segment
displays and a touch button with a bright multi-colored lamp. The production information system signals with a
colored illuminated touch button to which storage location the picker should go. The light is easily visible
from a long distance, ensuring efficient forward planning for the picking sequence. The numerical display tells
the picker how many parts are to be removed there and in which compartment the parts are to be placed on the
accompanying, unmanned, automatic guided vehicle. The employee acknowledges the removal process by pressing the
touch button. A color change signals an error and at the same time guides a second picker. An industrial truck
then transports the parts to the assembly line where they are taken out of the respective compartments or
containers. The collaborative solution raises productivity by avoiding errors in picking.
