Bridget McCrae, contributing editor to Modern Materials Handling magazine, covered the Matthews Automation Solutions’ ProMat 2015 in-booth press conference, held Tuesday, March 24. In the article, McCrae focused on the Lightning Pick brand’s LP Light Sled, noting:
The LP Light Sled combines the benefits of pick-to-cart, pick-to-conveyor, pick-to-light and put-to-light order fulfillment methodologies to maximize efficiency and accuracy in cluster picking of multiple orders simultaneously.
