The innovation for YOUR multi-order-picking trolleys
LUCA designs the frames to fit your existing trolleys
Pick by Frame ®
The wagon barcode is recorded with the scanner. Depending on requirements, the articles are either picked directly into the cart compartments (automotive or production) or into shipping cartons and boxes. The shipping cartons and boxes must be prepared before picking can begin. For boxes, the box barcodes are assigned to the locations and orders on the cart. For shipping cartons, the corresponding box sizes are assigned to the orders and positioned on the cart. A large box can also occupy several places on the trolley. Depending on the volume, several boxes can be assigned to an order. The preparation is realized according to the requirements. It can be done directly at the Pick-by-Frame® or at a separate workstation.
The mechanical coupling
The Pick-by-Frame® has its own wheels and is coupled to the picking trolley with the aid of guide rails. The mechanical connection between the two constructions is usually made by an innovative magnetic coupling. The "permanent electromagnets" hold the Pick-by-Frame® and the picking trolley together. The Pick-by-Frame® is released from the trolley by pressing a button that neutralises the permanent electromagnets.
After the mechanical coupling of Pick by Frame ® the barcode of the picking cart is read first. The open order items are loaded and the process can be started. Alternatively, RFID technology can be used for automatic identification of the trolley. The LUCA software manages the connections of the Pick by Frame ® to the trolleys and dynamically coordinates the necessary switchovers. An order batch on a trolley can also be processed by several employees and frames (e.g. several levels or zones in the warehouse).
Login of the employees
If desired, the system can support an employee logon. During confirmation, the employee ID can be sent for each picked item. The information is usually evaluated on the HOST system.
Pick by Frame® Process
The picking process is created at LUCA according to customer requirements. The customer-specific requirements are the main focus here. As a matter of principle, the employee is guided optimally through the warehouse and the reliable allocation of the articles to the orders is optimally supported by the technology.
Scanners are used to ensure quality and other data, such as batch, serial number, etc. Different scanners can be used in the Pick by Frame ® process. We have various stationary cash register scanners or mobile hand-back scanners at our disposal. Label printers can also be integrated into the process as required. All details of the equipment and processes are coordinated with customers and planners and recorded in specifications.
Battery change for Pick by Frame
The modern lithium-ion batteries are usually sufficient for one or even several layers. The charge level is checked directly on the battery. The Pick by Frame ® system is designed in such a way that the battery can even be replaced during operation/job. After switching on again, all displays light up again automatically.
Pick by frame ?
The battery, Pick-to-Light displays, scanner, printer and WiFi are mounted on a mobile frame. The "frame" is coupled to a picking cart with the entire picking technology and optimally supports the simultaneous picking or sequencing of several orders. After completion of the task, the frame is uncoupled from the cart again. LUCA-Server controls the complete process. The Pick-by-Frame is one of the best manual picking systems.
