Our Logistics Pick and Put to Light Solutions
Picking / Putting is a selection and / or storage activity aimed at grouping orders, packages, components or materials which, once assembled, are processed and shipped to customers or delivered to production lines.
Open Mind Tech offers various Picking technologies that can be interfaced with the management softwares, ERP, WMS and company MES through the proprietary OM-Link platform. They allow to guide the operator in order to increase productivity, drastically reduce errors and therefore operating costs for the company.
Pick-to-Light and Put-to-Light Systems
Open Mind Tech’s Pick and Put-to-Light solutions are fully customizable according to the operational needs of the individual company: “sequential” picking, “massive” picking, sorting, single / multi operator, “milk run”, etc.
Open Mind Tech’s Pick and Put-to-Light solutions are based on Wi-Fi Electronic Labels technology which, thanks to the graphic display, allow operators to show any information (product code, barcode, QrCode, quantity, stock, location) and, thanks to the multi-colored LED lights on the Label itself, allow to guide operators quickly and safely to the product to be picked up or replenished.
Electronic Labels are available in multiple formats and are equipped with batteries that guarantee autonomy for several years (depending on use).
The Pick and Put-to-Light systems based on Wi-Fi Electronic Labels are perfect for a logistics environment for all package handling operations and in a production environment for Kitting operations, for the management of the Manufacturing Supermarkets, to guide operators during the assembly phases.
The advantages offered by these solutions are several:
- no shelf wiring
- scalability over time as the shelf / line lay-out needs vary,
- long battery life,
- reduction of research time and costs,
- elimination of printing costs for paper labels
- reduction of staff training times

Voice Picking System
Voice Picking Systems allow operators to perform picking stages guided by specific voice commands. The operators confirm, always vocally, the execution of these commands.
Each operator is equipped with a dedicated mobile device or voice terminal and a headset with microphone.
Voice Picking can be integrated with Wi-Fi Electronic Labels if you want an even more effective and safe solution. The combination of the two technologies offers two additional advantages:
- Voice and visual operator guidance (thanks to the lights on the labels)
- Voice pick-up confirmation with Check Digit constantly updated to be read on the Label display (to avoid often recurring mnemonic mechanisms)
