While an accurate throughput may vary case-by-case due to various factors, the throughput of each port is as follows:
A simulation of the AutoStore design will provide the most accurate scope of the port throughput.
It is not possible because the RelayPort frame is the actual TAB module, which contains a lot of electronics not possible to mount later on-site. It must arrive from Poland pre-assembled. To install a RelayPort, it is necessary to remove all columns in the area. Pre-cutting columns will not save much time with the installation of the Port. In general, installing a RelayPort is a relatively simple process.
Yes. We work to ensure all AutoStore modules can work on existing or new systems. The only exception to this is the 425 mm Bin which can only be accessed and moved by B1 due to height. However, all Ports can accommodate the 425 mm Bin.
Ports are designed with various safety features. For example, the SwingPort and RelayPort have access doors at the top which close before Bins move and open for Bin access after movement has stopped.
The CarouselPort is equipped with a sensitive safety hatch. If anything slides it off even slightly, movement at the Port stops.
The BinLift has two functions.
One: it works as part of the SwingPort to provide an extension to a system allowing order picking to happen on a different floor or level from the grid.
Two: it connects two completely different AutoStore grids to each other. This would be two separate systems with two databases. G2GPortManager keeps contact between both Controllers, listen to both ASlog files, and send messages to both systems.
If one bin leaves one grid via the bin lift, it will be removed from the originating grid's database. When it enters the second grid via the bin lift, it will be inserted to the database of the second grid. The WMS needs to maintain and balance the bin level in both installations. In the future, AutoStore will also offer such an "over-layer" software (on-demand).
Currently, the Bin Lift is not available for the US market.
AutoStore can fit any warehouse or fulfillment center.
