Pick/Put to Light Technology

Light-directed order fulfillment systems use luminous LED and display modules mounted to shelving, flow rack, work benches, pallet rack or other storage locations. Whenever a product is needed from a particular location, the right indicator turns on, drawing attention when action is required. The operator picks/put the product quantity displayed. The operator then confirms the pick/put by pressing the illuminated button.

There is a wide range of different picking systems. Hospitals mainly use two systems: “piece picking” and “case picking”.

In addition, the system enables the operator to carry out inventory checks and replacement requests from the illuminated modules.

Application

Central Pharmacy, General Warehouse, Laundry.

Benefits

• Increased Productivity of between 25% and 50%. The fastest operator-based picking strategy available. A paperless pick/put reduces costs, reduces errors and streamlines operations. Simultaneous: various orders are prepared at the same time, which allows the operator to choose the best pick path. Also reduces walking, as each operator works in a zone, and orders are passed form zone to zone on a conveyor.
• Reduces labor costs
• Space efficient, often allowing operations with limited facility space to still gain added capacity
•Improved order accuracy: error rates are less than 1% on a regular basis.

- Storage and Automatic Dispensing Systems for Units and Hospital Services

Complete modular solution for storing all medical products. Based on a double-compartment storage concept, Kanban provides ideal logistics management for every hospital unit in terms of storage, transport and distribution. For basic storage it uses unit trays and baskets of different standard sizes and heights, which that can be divided into compartments and have label holder supports or devices to identify the stored product. The system is completed with cabinets, shelving, trolleys and devices to automate restocking.

Advantages include: less storage space, better stock management, improved stock rotation, improved ergonomics and flexibility.

Benefits

• Space Saving up to 50% by using the entire space. The tray and basketsystems allow use of the total space, from back to front, in the cabinets or shelves. It can also be divided to accommodate different items, so all the available capacity is utilized.
• Cost reduction of up to 30% in stock, floor space, labor costs and expired products by using the double compartment storage concept together with automated restocking systems like the RFID panel, which also helps to reduce the number of products out of stock.
• Improved Ergonomics: access to the goods is more ergonomic than traditional cabinets with fixed shelving. Trays and baskets can be withdrawn safely without falling out, so the entire contents can be seen clearly. Modules at higher levels can be positioned and withdrawn at an angle, allowing greater access to the contents. There is also no need to bend down to access the lower levels.
• Flexibility: our range of trays and baskets can accommodate most consumable items in use in hospitals. There are specific sectionsto properly store catheters and tubing. Trays and baskets, as well as their contents, can be repositioned easily at different heights  by simply changing the dividers.
