mipick LPOS - Light Position System

Using order picking systems efficiently and flexibly – many industrial sectors demand high standards of order picking systems. Especially small parts warehouses and picking areas, where pallets or containers systems such as small and large containers are used, require precise and flexible order picking systems.

Therefore, microSYST developed a light positioning system (LPOS) which combines flexibility, efficiency and variability within one system.

The benefits of our light positioning displays

  • Light positioning displays for any application
    Wether high-bay rackings, pallet storage locations or container systems – the light positioning displays can be mounted with lugs and also flexibly adjusted due to the variable direction of the spotlights.
  • Reduction of order picking errors
    The goods as well as the places to be picked will be marked clearly with integrated lasers and spotlights – and order picking errors will be prevented.
  • Hands free during picking due to automatic acknowledgement
    In combination with sensors such as light barriers, distance meters or scales you will be able to automate the acknowledgement process – for a fast and safe order picking process!

Positioning lasers and spots with adjustable beam direction

The light positioning system is equipped with laser pointers that can be adjusted in different directions by adjusting screws. Thus, the display is able to illuminate various picking areas - even if they may be located laterally - from a fixed central position.

Focus on various distances

The laser and spot beams can be focused even on various distances, depending on technology and type. This ensures glare-free illumination of the picking surfaces at all time at any desired operating site due to the system´s flexibility.

Space-saving and barrier-free

The ceiling mount saves space and helps with keeping the workplace barrier-free. All other inventory is not affected. Additionally, no changes to current equipment are needed for installation.

Modular system setup

The modular system configuration of the mipick LPOS allows for the connection of several laser positioning systems and thus grants a flexible and easy way to adjust the system to the individual needs on site.

Application areas of Laser Positioning Systems

  • Illumination of single / picking trays
  • Controlling and supervisory monitoring e.g. in vehicle construction and engineering
  • Visual guidance through process sequences e.g. for several work steps
  • Universal use as process-accompanying display
