RF Picking by Lightning Pick Helps GEAR for Sports

RF Picking by Lightning Pick Helps GEAR for Sports

“Lightning Pick Technologies combination of Pick to Light for our fast moving SKUs and RF Picking for our low-volume areas allowed us to go paperless throughout our distribution center for order picking. With their LP Convey managing container routing and LP Messenger controlling weighing, manifesting, labeling and shipping, Lightning Pick provided multiple solutions for multiple processes throughout our operation,” noted Randy Stabenow, Vice-President of Manufacturing & Distribution at GEAR For Sports.

RF Picking offers a cost effective alternative for applications within an order fulfillment operation with a large number of products and volume that does not justify installation of Pick to Light. LP RF operates on a wide range of scanning terminals. A customer may be able to employ their existing RF terminals.

Integration with the overall Lightning Pick Suite allows the user to configure some “areas” for RF picking and other areas for Pick to Light picking. All areas share a common host interface so that the higher-level systems (WMS and Business Hosts) view the pick area in a single unified process. Orders are allowed to flow freely between the different picking areas.

The Lightning Pick server communicates with LP RF terminals. The terminal displays the intended pick location and other product specific information, such as the product code or item number. The system is configurable to require scanning of the product ID or product location number to confirm the pick.

Lightning Pick Technologies, providers of paperless picking systems including the number one selling Pick to Light solution in North America recently released Lightning Pick NW Series Wireless Pick to Light System. The NW Series is the first completely mobile Pick to Light technology in the market, introducing an expanded range of applications that can benefit from light-directed order picking.

In 1998 Lightning Pick introduced duct-based Pick to Light technology to the United States. These cable-free light modules retrofit to a rack, shelf, cart or other material handling storage media. The new track-lighting style hardware lowered installation costs and is more flexible for system reconfiguration, maintenance, and expansion. Cable-free displays are the industry standard, but distributors still sought after a means of applying Pick to Light speed and accuracy to operations that did not have the infrastructure for mounted lights.
The LP Wireless Pick to Light System is ideal for any temporary or mobile product locations such as totes, bins, shipping containers, pallets on open floors and others. By placing the portable light module on or near the required product location it is immediately part of the Pick to Light operation. Bays and zones can leverage a combination of classic Lightning Pick track-mounted and wireless lights, all of which are easily configured within Lightning Pick software.
