Kasto Releases Light Function for Storage System


Kasto announced it has equipped its Unitower automatic bar stock and sheet metal storage system with an integrated pick-by-light function. The function is particularly helpful in storage systems in which the pallets or cassettes are subdivided into multiple storage compartments. After the load carrier has been moved to the station, a light dot is projected onto the field of the pallet or cassette where the article can be found. The operator recognizes the correct compartment and is able to store or retrieve the item without error.
