LASERS FOR LOGISTICS AND ASSEMBLY
Laser projectors are a great work relief for picking in packaging logistics. Employees are guided through different items in the right order and quantity from the right containers, in order to put them all together in one package for shipment.
In a similar way, laser projectors offer support for installers in industrial production. They display the positions for drilling, cutting, or welding, mark correct locations for bolts and rivets, and when integrated into a machine, can also project assembly target positions. Speak to our knowledgeable sales team about your application, we have the right lasers for logistics and assembly.
An industrial laser projector, optionally with a red or green projection, is placed above the picking station in a tray warehouse and marked with a geometric figure, a letter, a number or text that clearly indicates which compartment the picker should pick up the goods from, and in what order (Pick-by -Light).
This same application is also useful for the storage of articles. The location and number of items to be stored are communicated to the order picker by means of a laser light. Even the name of the article or item number can be displayed (Put-to-Light).
The position data, which usually also includes specific geometries, is obtained directly from the laser projector via the control software of the warehouse management system, or via a decentralized PLC control. Tray geometry is fully configurable and can be modified and re-created by the user anytime. This is a significant advantage since there are different tray sizes, each with a different fan division.
Laser projections are also a great help with assembly. For example, they can also provide clear indications as to how many screws need be used, or which part need be mounted next onto a corresponding material container. The order-picker or installer is guided through the compartments in order, and told to select the proper parts, as well as how many.
The LP-CUBE laser projector ensures invariably accurate withdrawals. Its adaptable concept minimizes errors in assembly, packaging, and picking. It increases picking performance by reducing picking times. A visual support guides the employees intuitively, shortens training time for new employees dramatically, and allows for a higher degree of flexibility in movements of personnel.
