Container. Box. Inventory holder.
Like blocks, Bins are stacked next to and on top of each other within the Grid. These durable containers hold the inventory. Strong construction and gentle robot handling make them last forever.
All goods are stored in standardized, specially designed plastic containers called "Bins." Every single Bin is identified by a unique number stored in the AutoStore Controller database and repeated with a label on the bin itself. The system knows the location of every bin and all they contain.
Bins are available in three sizes. The tallest (425 mm) is for use with B1 robots. Each Bin can be subdivided using moveable dividers to hold multiple product categories, increasing your storage capacity.
Manufactured of either HDPE or anti-static PP-ESD, the AutoStore Bin is stackable and engineered to withstand hundreds of thousands of movements over years of service. Bins are so strong, in fact, that the world's first AutoStore warehouse at Elotec in Norway is still using the Bins first installed in 2005.
All Bins have a max load of 30 kg (66 pounds).

No, weight sensors in the port would not allow the bin to move into the system.
Yes, up to 25 mm (1 inch) from the top.
