New Light Pointer Increases Pick Accuracy in Shuttle VLM

The light pointer now available with a Shuttle Vertical Lift Module (VLM) from Kardex Remstar directs an operator to a specific part location using a laser or LED spot. This new pick to light system can increase accuracy, productivity and overall picking speed.

The light pointer consists of an LED or laser light mounted to a slider that moves horizontally on a guiding system. Located inside over the access opening of a Shuttle VLM, the LED or laser light pointer swivels in depth direction to illuminate any position within the tray. The light spot immediately identifies the exact location of the item to be picked or replenished.

The light pointer navigates the operator to the exact part to be picked increasing pick accuracy. This eliminates any hesitation or guessing when retrieving a part. In a manual system, there is a greater chance of error.

The light pointer eliminates the need to manually search for each part, allowing the operator to pick faster. The light pointer can also assist operators with batch picking. The Shuttle VLM delivers the tray directly to the operator at an ergonomic height and the light pointer highlights the exact location of the part to be picked. Once the operator has confirmed the part has been picked, the light pointer will swivel to the next part location on the pick list. This allows orders to be filled quicker.

The light pointer is the newest addition to the Kardex Remstar QuickPic pick to light family of products. It can stand alone to navigate an operator to a part location, or work with a TIC (transaction information center) to further improve picking accuracy.
