About AutoStore

AutoStore is a cube storage automation system. It consists of five standard modules: robot, port or workstation, grid, bin, and controller. The robots drive on the top of the grid to access inventory stored in the bins below. The bins are put-away, retrieved and delivered to the ports or workstations as required. When compared to conventional storage density, AutoStore can store up to 2-3X more inventory in the same space.

The solution can be installed in oddly shaped buildings, around pillars or on several levels and fills out the warehouse space potential to its maximum. The AutoStore infrastructure is independent of the building structure; disassembly and re-location is feasible and cost-effective. AutoStore is an eco-friendly solution. Overall power consumption is low energy. Recovery occurs during bin lowering and robot braking. Ceiling lighting is not needed. It requires less space due to the compact structure.

The AutoStore solution is built around the “goods-to-person” principle. The key benefits of goods-to-person include: eliminate worker travel time to pick locations, picking productivity, omit dedicated pick faces (no slotting, re-slotting, manual replenishment), product security/inventory accuracy, order processing speed, and order accuracy. Furthermore, the worker environment is ideal. AutoStore technology supports a quiet, clean environment with reduced fatigue factors. Workstations are designed for ergonomic operation.
