Lightning Pick’s LP Put highlighted by Modern Materials Handling’s MODEX Show Daily coverage.
In a MODEX 2016 Show Daily article filed on April 5—entitled “Put-to-light synchs with packing solutions at Matthews”—Modern Materials Handling‘s Roberto Michel, Editor at Large, wrote about Matthews Automation Solutions’ brand Lightning Pick, and its LP Put put-to-light system.
The coverage featured an interview with Joe Pelej, Marketing Manager for both Lightning Pick and Pyramid (pictured at right). Pelej demoed the system for Michel, explaining that LP Put’s backend software can easily and smoothly integrate with other automated order fulfillment systems, including auto baggers. “Part of what makes it unique is this integration capability so that the operation has fast, efficient steps at the end of the process,” said Pelej in the article.
During Michel’s tour of the Matthews Automation Solutions’ exhibit, Pelej also showcased Pyramid’s Director WES Warehouse Execution System. The system, wrote Michel: “translates inputs from an operation’s host systems—including warehouse management systems (WMS) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems—with sophisticated algorithms to receive and process orders. It then synchronizes and directs multiple, disparate automation technologies with an integrated materials handling equipment (MHE) warehouse control software (WCS).”
Pelej concluded his Pyramid Director WES discussion by noting that with the system in place, properly orchestrated warehouse execution will “drive the flow and efficiency needed for direct-to-consumer order fulfillment.”
In 1850, John Dixon Matthews emigrated from Sheffield, England to open a small engraving shop in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He became a pre-eminent provider of high-quality identification products and services, including stamping dies, branding irons, ornate engravings and stamps for wooden crates. His company flourished, converting from a partnership to a corporation in 1902.

“Data is what’s used to mark, identify, track, control and pick the products required by every order. Customers are looking to suppliers like us to help them link and integrate all that data throughout the process. Matthews offers data-driven automation solutions that boost system interconnectivity and automate complex tasks that humans can’t accomplish efficiently.”
“The solutions we’re thinking about today are strongly influenced by our vision of a future in the cloud… to help our customers improve their operations through better data management functions such as performance monitoring and analysis, troubleshooting, preventive maintenance alerts and notifications.”
“The management and integration of data is one of the leading opportunities, and challenges, for supply chains worldwide. With the rise of cloud computing, companies have unprecedented opportunities to better leverage their supply chains and increase their service offerings—and sales.”
