Residential & Commercial Garage Doors and Openers
The Dixon, Illinois-based company faced an important challenge in their distribution center: how to consolidate 12 parts picking lines into one, while also increasing fulfillment performance and accuracy? Some other automated picking applications (like carousels) were considered, but in the end Raynor selected a pick-to-light system to meet their unique requirements.
The Growing Adoption Rate of Pick-to-Light Systems in Manufacturing Applications
Modern Materials Handling magazine conducted a survey on behalf of Lightning Pick Technologies, a provider of parts and order picking, kitting and sequencing solutions, to examine how supply chain manufacturing operations are adopting and optimizing order fulfillment technologies to increase productivity and improve customer satisfaction. Respondents to the study are top materials handling professionals and are predominantly warehouse, distribution, or logistics management, plant management, and plant or lean manufacturing engineers.
At The Tool House we provide our customers with solutions enabling successful lean manufacturing implementation. Build2Light is strong complementary technology that has a major impact on a variety of error proofing, assembly and material handling processes.
KRL Marketing has found the B2L product an excellent training environment for education institutes that want to enhance their curriculum and provide students hands on state-of-the-art technologies to improve their knowledge base for future employment in warehousing and manufacturing. The B2L is also gaining interest in special needs training at Vocational Institutes because of its ease of use and flexible configuration environment.
The B2L system has provided us with an excellent instructional platform to teach and reinforce the concepts of kitting, sub-assembly and the human factors in picking operations.
