LASER GUIDE FOR CASE PICKING

June 1, 2010


LaserTrucks+ combines laser-guided pallet trucks with a voice-directed system to increase productivity for case picking applications. It upgrades pallet trucks to driverless operations using industrial-grade laser guidance systems. At the start of an order, the LaserTruck delivers a new pallet directly to the picker, automatically moves with the voice-equipped picker as they verbally confirm picks, and transports the completed pallet to shipping while the next LaserTruck brings a new pallet to the picker. Other benefits include improved safety, energy efficiency and operational transparency. System flexibility is maintained, and routing plans can be updated as requirements change
