Pick by Bridge

With the special pick-by-bridge method, large parts are picked with a mobile gantry crane (automotive). Positioning indicators and target lamps Pick by Bridgeare mounted on the movable construction. The exact position of the crane is determined by distance measuring systems or eLocation®.


The process

After the order activation on this LUCA-Serverthe employee is guided via the positioning displays to his removal station (similar to the positioning in the car wash system). The portal crane at Pick-by-Bridge is usually not controlled automatically, but only by the employee for security reasons. When the correct position is reached, the STOP indicator is switched on and the target compartment is illuminated. The removal with the crane can take place. An eLocation® or RFID system can be used directly on the crane hook as automatic acknowledgement. Alternatively, the picked parts can also be scanned if required. Optionally, the storage position can also be signalled in the same way. The method can also be combined with other picking systems (e.g. Pick-by-Light, Pick-by-Voice, etc.).
