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

The Pick-by-Beam method is used at workstations where items are picked from or into small compartments. In contrast to the Pick-by-Point® method, several locations can be marked simultaneously. In addition, additional information or images can be projected onto projection surfaces, such as a table, floor, etc. The method is very productive when the articles are distributed in small target compartments (put-to-beam).
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 devices must be used in a vertical installation, which places special demands on the construction. We access the range of the best manufacturers that are suitable for the application. Only LED laser technology is used here. The well-known problem of the life span of the illuminants is reduced to a minimum and designed to save costs. Automatic monitoring mechanisms are built into our software to protect 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 carried out via the central LUCA-Server.
