Press Release Summary:
Combining task complete button and indicator, PICK-MAXÂ² provides 1-touch, 1-glance operation. Sense-ME(TM) hand sensor validates picks from pick face and eliminates need to press button after each pick/put. Indicator light has 5 colors, allowing multiple pickers per zone, batch pick, etc. Three conductor BUS is integrated into plastic extrusion to mount to flow rack or static shelving. Teamed with Watch-Me(TM) system, PICK-MAXÂ² lets pickers work in zoned or zoneless mode.
Original Press Release:
New Redesigned PICK-MAX²(TM) Pick-to-Light System from IPTI
Improves the Process
(Ixonia, WI) - IPTI, Inc. offers the PICK-MAX² system, a ground-up redesign of the industry's leading Pick-Max(TM) pick-to-light system, offering a pick face display that reduces operator picking motions and combines pick status indicators to make the process more efficient. This new design also streamlines installation and maintenance. This system is built for speed. The PICK-MAX² combines the task complete button and the indicator for one touch, one glance operation. Teamed up with the patented IPTI Watch-Me(TM) system, the PICK-MAX² allows pickers to work in a zoned or zoneless mode depending upon the application. This approach maximizes capability by 20% -- 50% while maintaining real time accountability.
PICK-MAX² features the patent pending Sense-ME(TM) hand sensor technology. Sense-ME validates picks from the pick face, reducing picking mistakes due to picking from the wrong location and improving efficiency by eliminating the requirement to press a button after each pick/put.
Measuring only five inches wide the smaller PICK-MAX² face allows higher pick densities, thereby maximizing the investment in storage and floor space with no sacrifice in functionality.
The PICK-MAX² pick face makes the most of its compact width. The indicator light has five colors, allowing multiple pickers per zone, batch pick, etc. The three-color display permits simple segregation of display pick information. IPTI has engineered other features to make the PICK-MAX² face a rich source of information for pickers.
The PICK-MAX² pick-to-light system is the easiest to install, reconfigure and maintain because of the unique and innovative IPTI "snap-in" design. IPTI's original three conductor BUS is integrated into a durable plastic extrusion to mount to any type of flow rack or static shelving.
This three conductor BUS eliminates the problems associated with two and four conductor designs. Exclusive to IPTI, the contacts on the PICK-MAX² modules have a self-cleaning wiping design, continually clean themselves with use.
Each pick module is dynamically assigned a unique serial number, eliminating the need to set dip switches on every module or manage factory pre-assigned addresses. The operation saves time and prevents errors caused by duplicated or incorrect numbering. IPTI continually develops innovative pick to light products and systems for material handling operations world-wide. The company first introduced the Snap-In BUS concept; going on to engineer products that meet a number of customer needs while creating software customized to their businesses. IPTI products utilize open architecture and are therefore the choice of integrators across the country.
