SICK’S new Pick2Light light curtain has an installation- and user-friendly reflex design, offering an ergonomic and economical solution for checking, picking and retrieval from small-parts shelves.
The completely new reflex concept includes a reflective foil on the back of the device, which acts as a reflector for the neighbouring light curtain. The same applies for the integrated "job" LED, which shows the operator the appropriate storage space and optically confirms correct removal.
User ergonomics was also taken into account with the Pick2Light light curtain - the slim sender/receiver housing provides the user removing the parts with optimum access to the parts box from any position.
Whether on the assembly line or in the commissioning department - accessing the wrong storage space of a small-parts shelf and removing the wrong component or article can have awkward consequences, such as complaints, repair or replacement. The Pick2Light light curtain from SICK provides assistance by ensuring correct removal - without exception.
Indicate, check and report back - the Pick2Light light curtain offers all these functions to prevent errors during manual part removal from a shelf.
As any number of units can be combined, it is suitable for creating individual solutions for checking picking. Differing monitoring heights, such as access openings, can be monitored.
Mechanical installation is easy - with sliding blocks for all aluminium profiles commonly used in shelf construction. Even existing shelves are easily upgraded as the system concept, and its suitability for AS-I sensor connection, minimises the space required on the shelf and installation costs.
