Solution

Pairing Pick to Light with an inspection system

We built an inspection system on the same line as the Pick to Light System. Since both systems are on the same line, any picking errors can immediately be corrected. In addition, a single operator performs the entire process from picking to inspections, reducing personnel expenses and other costs.
