PickToLight rack (ReelStorage PTL-SR)
The ATN system offers a number of advantages over conventional warehouse management:
  • Fast storage and retrieval of component carriers
  • No waiting times due to material search
  • Real-time tracking of materials
  • Ongoing real-time inventory
  • Seamless integration with MRP & MES
  • Significant reduction of setup times
  • Space savings compared to conventional manual racks
  • And most importantly, elimination of errors
Combined with the minimal installation effort, this results in extremely short payback times. Even the elimination of a single error can have the effect that the investment already pays for itself.
PickToLight rack (ReelStorage PTL-SR)
The PTL shelf has an LED for each setting compartment to signal states or indications. To store material, the carrier UID is scanned and the PTL rack uses an LED to indicate where a space is free. In doing so, the rack remembers all carriers that are stored.

Picking from the warehouse is done similarly:
A material or piece list is created for picking, either digitally or printed out. The digital pick list is loaded by the program and then the corresponding carriers are displayed in sequence. At the position of the first carrier, the assigned LED lights up. The carrier is removed and scanned for confirmation. Then the LED for the next carrier is lit, and so on until the last carrier has been removed. For the printed removal list, a format should be selected such that the carrier UID is output as a barcode or DataMatrixCode (DMC). This should not be a major problem even with externally created lists, since in Excel, for example, the relevant column only needs to be formatted with the appropriate font. The list is printed and serves as a basis for the extraction. The code of the first carrier is scanned, the LED for this carrier lights up and the carrier can be removed from the warehouse. The Carrier UID on the Carrier is scanned as confirmation and then the next Carrier takes its turn. Mix-ups are eliminated, thus eliminating a dangerous source of errors.

The advantages of the system become particularly clear when you compare the way it works with conventional component management: printing out lists, comparing, crossing off and searching for material is a thing of the past. Working with the ATN system is faster, safer and also saves a lot of space.

The standard shelf:
  • Dimensions 2.1 m x 1.9 m x 0.4 m (WxHxD)
  • Capacity 1,400 SMD rolls (diameter 7"=178 mm)
    i.e. over 1650 reels/m² floor space
Another rack variant offers space for 500 rolls with a diameter of up to 380 mm.
