Modula rolls out enhancement to laser light technology

By DC Velocity Staff

Automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) provider Modula has rolled out a product enhancement to its laser light guidance technology that it said combines its external dual delivery picking bay with its laser pointer system.

Modula said the picking technology's innovations allow a vertical lift module (VLM) operator to pick products from one tray while the VLM simultaneously retrieves the next required tray. This dramatically reduces the operator's idle time, according to the company. In addition, Modula's dual red and green laser pointer is the only one in the industry to be set up outside of the VLM while maintaining precise mapping of the SKU (stock-keeping unit) across the entire tray area, the company said.

The results ensure increased productivity by up to 35 percent, and improved accuracy by up to 100 percent, the company said.
