Pick by Beam

The use of projector projectors is widespread and well-known everywhere in the office. The professional Pick-by-Beam technology is used at LUCA for marking target locations, in the Multi-Order-Picking process and contours at precision assembly stations. The simple configuration tools facilitate system customization.

This method is used at workstations where items are picked from small or into small compartments. In contrast to Pick-by-Point®, several locations can be marked at the same time here. In addition, additional information or images can be projected on projection surfaces, such as table, floor, etc. The method is very productive when distributing items into small target compartments (put-to-beam).

Assembly stations

For assembly stations, the beam projectors can display the marking of the contours or exact positions of the assembled parts. The configuration and training time for the system is very short and intuitive. The system is often used with other monitoring methods and picking systems, such as cameras and laser systems.

The projector technology

In continuous operation, the technology used must work absolutely reliably and precisely. Often the equipment must be used in a vertical installation, which places special requirements on the design. We access the range of the best manufacturers, which are suitable for the application. Only LED laser technology is used here. The well-known problem of the lifetime of the illuminants is reduced to a minimum and designed in a cost-saving way. Automatic monitoring mechanisms are built into our software to preserve the illuminants during continuous use. In harsh environments the projectors are installed in special actively ventilated, tight, thermally monitored and safe housings. The process and standby control is done via the central LUCA-Server.
