Scalable, entry-level picking solution maximizes SKU density and labor productivity
(CINCINNATI: March 18, 2014) Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com), a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, introduces new RTS™ cL™ pick-to-light hardware from its subsidiary company, Knighted® (www.knightedsoftware.com). The new pick-to-light system enables maximum picking and putting accuracy and efficiency in high-velocity, high-SKU omnichannel and e-commerce fulfillment environments. Scalable operational features and flexible workflows enable quick startup and improved order fulfillment productivity for both simple and complex operations.
RTS cL pick-to-light systems utilize bright flashing lights and easy-to-read LED displays to provide clear direction to pick locations and quantities for virtually error-free picking in a variety of fulfillment methods, including cluster and batch picking. Multicolor devices enable concurrent activity in the shared zones, such as multiple active order fillers or quick batch viewed by color-coded picking for shorter walk times and improved labor productivity. The simple design enables easy implementation and training, while durable construction and 24X7 support ensure maximum uptime and reliability.
Integrated with Knighted fulfillment execution software, each RTS cL pick-to-light system can scale to meet increased capacity requirements and augments existing WMS or ERP systems to provide advanced planning, management and reporting tools to optimize light-directed operations. Each module can function as a single or dual location, with dedicated high-speed device-level controllers that enable easy configuration for multiple fulfillment workflows.
Constructed from a durable aluminum base for easy mounting to any type of shelving or racking, modules also include a cover plate for a clean look and protection from dirt. Reliable snap-in installation prevents devices from being dislodged when unloading or replenishing slots. The compact form of each picking module allows dense placement and precise alignment. Ergonomic acknowledgement buttons use redundant actuators for reliable response to light finger pressure.
“The new cL pick-to-light system meets the fulfillment needs of our e-commerce and omnichannel distribution customers with changing order profiles and increased each picking,” said Greg Cronin, executive vice president, Intelligrated. “This scalable, entry-level picking automation system delivers the accuracy and productivity demanded by today’s fastest growing retailers, manufacturers and 3PL operators.”
