Put to light. Distribution tables
The WMS Visual SACA has modules for wave picking. These modules can be combined with a distribution table module (put to light). This module can also be used as a picking station with sets of shuttles or shuttles, carousels),paternosters or rack aisles with miniloads.
Such put to light systems are used to control the distribution of the goods at the end of a picking wave, then the picking operator arrives to te table with all the goods for different customer orders. These systems are usually made of a WMS driving the whole operation, pick to light displays used as put to light, intelligent display hubs and bar code scanners or/and RFID tags readers.
These displays are made of numerical digits and operation keys and are placed in rows inside PVC profiles placed at the front of the shelves where the distribution of the goods take place or on top of a distribution table. All of them are linked to intelligent hubs by means of a RS485 multidrop bus,and all the hubs are linked to the WMS computer though wired ethernet or wifi links, using tcp/ip. Thus, for each SKU to be distributed, the system shows the quantity due for each order in the display on top of the shipping box or under the bins in the shelf used for that particular orders, and the operator confirming the placement of the goods by means of the confirmation key of the display.
Usually the WMS or the driver will pick up the master data from the WMS or the ERP, this data will have the SKUs and the quantities as well as the display number associated with each order. When a picking wave is issued, an operator arrives with the SKUs to be distributed, or the goods arrives via a conveyor belt, the operator will read the product barcode and the system will display the quantities on the right displays, so the operator will deposit them on each box or delivery position and will confirm the job by pressing the display key switching off the display.
The system will detect the end of an order and will free the display-bin to be awarded to another order. As an option, a thermal printer can be used by the system to issue shipping labels for the boxes, as well as a laser printer to issue a packing list when the last box of an order is finished.
