Simple order picking with a light spot
Mobile light source in the service of logistics
One mobile projector, one order picker, many storage locations
From the stage to the warehouse
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 called it Pick-by-Point®. The brand is patented by LUCA.
The moving light spot marks the storage locations - it couldn't be easier. The idea is very simple and practical and can be used for marking bins, pallets, small and large compartments at a distance of approx. 20 metres. The number of pieces or the storage positions in a trolley and other features are signalled on screens or by voice output when required. The number of items is not always important when picking. In Automotiv, the number of pieces is usually constant.
The confirmation of the activities is confirmed via scanner, Pick-Radar® or by voice (Voice Picking).
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 in 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 SKODA employees were particularly enthusiastic about the solution, which was also particularly recognised some time later (see below). The first VW system is still in operation today in Wolfsburg at a service provider, the Schnellecke company, and is used to supply the production line at the VW plant for the Golf, Touran and Tiguan. The innovative Schnellecke company has since deployed several LUCA plants worldwide.
VW Innovation Day 2012
At the Innovation Day in June 2012 at 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 pleased that this LUCA solution has received such great recognition in the VW Group. We would like to thank SKODA for the recognition of the innovative LUCA solutions in sequencing and picking, in the more than 200 different systems that have been installed there in the SKODA plants (in Mlada Boleslav and Kvasiny).
Our Pick-by-Point® solution has managed to take its place as an integral part of the solutions in logistics. Even some universities and renowned scientific institutes, such as the Fraunhofer Institute in Dortmund (Mr Detlef Spee), have installed the LUCA solution on their own premises to present the technology to the young logistics generation. Some technical books and learning materials report on the Pick-by-Point®.
