Pick by Point®
The easy picking with one light point
Professional Stage Equipment in the Service of Logistics
one projector, one employee, many storage locations.
From the stage to the camp
The MovingHeads are widely used in stage technology. A concert without the light sources is unimaginable today. A few years ago LUCA successfully used the technology in the warehouse and named it Pick-by-Point ®. The brand is patented by LUCA.
The movable light spot marks the storage locations - it couldn't be easier. The idea is very simple and practical and can be used for marking containers, pallets, small and large compartments at a distance of approx. 20 m. The number of pieces or the storage positions in a trolley and other features are signalled on screens or by voice output if required. The number of pieces is not always important during the removal. In automotive applications, the number of pieces is usually constant.
The acknowledgement of the activities is confirmed via scanner, Pick-Radar ® or by voice (Pick-by-Voice).
VW in Wolfsburg 2010
The introduction of our Pick-by-Point ® - solution at VW in Wolfsburg celebrated its premiere in 2010. The use of LUCA technology for replenishment control and sequencing of door handles made it onto the first page of the VW magazine "autogramm Wolfsburg 06-07/2010". Not only VW Wolfsburg was very proud of the LUCA solution. The news about the Pick-by-Point ® spread very quickly to all other VW plants and VW brands. Some employees of SKODA were particularly enthusiastic about the solution, which was also acknowledged some time later (see below). The first VW system is still working in Wolfsburg today at a service provider, the Schnellecke company, and is used to supply the production line in the VW plant for Golf, Touran and Tiguan. The innovative Schnellecke company has since then used several LUCA systems worldwide.
VW Innovation Day 2012
At the Innovation-Day in June 2012 in the VW Group (in Martorell/Spain) SKODA wins the main prize as "Best Innovation in Logistics" for the introduction of our Pick-by-Point ® - solution. We are delighted that this LUCA solution has received such great recognition within the VW Group. We would like to thank SKODA for the recognition of the innovative LUCA solutions in sequencing and picking, with more than 200 different systems installed in the SKODA plants (in Mlada Boleslav and Kvasiny).
Pick-by-Point ® today
Our Pick-by-Point ® solution has managed to become an integral part of the solutions in logistics. Some universities and renowned scientific institutes, such as the Fraunhofer Institute in Dortmund (Mr. Detlef Spee), have also installed the LUCA solution within their own walls to present the technology to the young logistics generation. Some specialist books and learning materials report on the Pick-by-Point ®.
