Setting up and operating Pick by Light systems with E-Pick

E-Pick is a cost-effective stand-alone solution for setting up and operating Pick by Light systems. The picking tasks in your warehouse benefit from greater reliability and efficiency.

A sophisticated graphical user interface enables users to set up a complete Pick by Light application without any special computer skills. The setup encompasses linking the system to an order database, installing the operating elements, and assigning the storage locations as well as the day-to-day operation.

E-Pick supports a diverse range of options for transferring your products and order data. The data can be exchanged via an XML file, a connection to your SQL database, and also directly via an SAP interface.

E-Pick offers you the option of equipping your professional warehouse either completely or partially with Pick by Light systems. This accelerates your warehouse processes and makes them more efficient. In addition, you can also expand your existing Pick by Light system yourself. Furthermore, Pick by Light is a proven method of rapidly and reliably picking customer orders.

Small work station, high performance

E-Pick is the ideal solution for smaller work stations that have to react to autonomous off-line picking and assembly cells and also need to flexibly address changes and modifications made at short notice. The core element is the touch panel PC that controls the connected picking elements and also instructs the employees. Even if your logistics tasks change, you can rapidly adapt E-Pick to the new situation.



Demanding assembly jobs are always subject to economic factors. SSI SCHAEFER’s pick@work expands the E-Pick solution and is configured via additional software on the touch panel. The pick@work technology helps you to optimize work processes, enhance efficiency, and improve quality standards. At the same time, the solution takes into account ergonomic aspects to protect your employees’ health.

The light-controlled assembly system maximizes performance at manual assembly work stations. Procedural guidelines and integrated assembly instructions optimize your procedures.

This system’s innovation consists of linking ergonomic work stations with Pick by Light and guides the user through the assembly process step-by-step with the help of an instruction display. The employees select the orders via the display and the storage locations then light up in the correct assembly sequence. The system’s images and drawings display the assembly steps in the correct sequence, guiding the employees through the work process. This illustrates the complexity of the procedure, minimizing the number of errors and safeguarding the quality.
