This refers to the rail tracks for the Robot wheels found along the top of the Grid.
SDG stands for Single/Double Grid. This design provides a single rail track along one axis and a double rail track along the other axis. Utilizing a single rail in one direction requires the Robots to have a cell between them when passing.
DDG stands for Double/Double Grid. This design provides a double rail track in all directions allowing Robots to pass each other in all directions.
Single/Double Grid: 705mm (27.8 inches) in wide Grid direction and 480mm (18.9 inches) in narrow Grid direction.
Double/Double Grid: 705mm (27.8 inches) in wide grid direction and 505mm (19.9 inches) in narrow Grid direction.
Max height is 16 of the 330 mm Bins or 24 of the 220 mm Bins resulting in 5.4 m (17.75 feet). With Robots and recommended service space, the height is 7.52 m (24.67 feet) in total.
The max height for the 425 mm Bins is 14 high of the 425 mm resulting in 6 m (19.6 feet). With Robots and recommended service space, the height is 8.18 m (26.84 feet) in total.
This depends on the design. At the very least, the minimum height must be as the following plus the Grid track above it:
This Bin depth provides the needed height for a Port.
Less space is needed if the track is used "only" as a road for transporting Bins between different Grids. In this case, the design can either be a track with no Bins or a track with at least one Bin plus the track above.
For Robot trafficking we need 600 mm (2 feet) for R5 and 860 mm (2.8 feet) for B1.
It needs to be possible for service and support staff to operate and use the AutoStore service vehicle on the grid. The recommendation from AutoStore is at least 2 m (6.5 feet) of open space above the Grid. In special cases a lower height could be accepted by the local authorities, but this needs to be clarified and approved by the local authorities and the local AutoStore distributor.
3 mm (0.1 inch) on all sides (Bin tolerance +/-2 mm)
Yes, although DDG will be the new standard going forward.
Yes. Bin Lift Grid-to-Grid (G2G) configuration allows Bins to flow between Grids on different floor levels.
Bin Lift is currently only available in the EU, United States, Canada, Japan, Korea, China, Israel, Panama, Serbia, and Uruguay.
We are working on adding more countries with the applicable product approvals. Note that it may take longer in some countries to get approval.
Yes. AutoStore Track Cleaner, a Bin equipped with a vacuum cleaner brush, helps clean the Grid both during and after operations by removing dust, dirt, and grime buildup from the Grid tracks. An AutoStore Track Cleaner works autonomously, allowing customers to effortlessly maintain cleanliness, avoid unwanted downtime at an inconvenient times, and maximize the system uptime.
Yes, it is possible to install a self-supporting AutoStore Grid using Grid Bracers. The Grid Bracer provides operational support to the AutoStore system and eliminates the need for additional structural construction around the pillars or walls, allowing you to utilize your available storage space to its full potential. In addition, the use of a Grid Bracer can significantly shorten the installation lead time and lower the cost of the AutoStore system.
Note that the Grid Bracer is only compatible with the Double/Double Grid.
In environments with temperature variations, it is vital to consider temperature effects on the Grid aluminum tracks, especially for large Grids. AutoStore Grid component, Flexible Grid Cell, gives large Grids high resilience and holds the tracks together while safely absorbing thermal expansion. This maintains the Grid evenness and ensures optimal working conditions for the Robots – a key parameter for system stability and uptime.
AutoStore™ can fit any warehouse or fulfillment center.
