ConveyorPort

Keep it simple

The ConveyorPort uses a conveyor belt to move Bins to the operator. For many users, all they need is the ConveyorPort — simply a port to access all Bins inside the Grid. While one Bin is presented to the operator, the second Bin is held in place above the Port by a warehouse robot.

Complexity

Easy

ConveyorPort is a workstation in its simplest form. Bins get dropped on a conveyor and transferred to an opening outside of the Grid. Smart covering and sensors keep the operation safe.

Available in narrow or wide, the ConveyorPort works for a location on any side of the Grid

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it possible to use the one port for both picking and filling goods into the bins?

Yes. All ports can toggle between picking and replenishment.

Is it possible to remove a bin from the grid at the filling/picking ports?

It is possible to take bins out of the system at "transfer" ports, but the bins need to be handled in a controlled, closed environment (e.g. a conveyor loop) to reduce risk of bin damage.

Can a Robot collect a Bin from the port after it drops off a bin?

Yes, a robot does not leave the port "empty handed". When dropping off a bin, it will wait at the Port to collect a Bin and deliver back to a spot along the top layer of the Grid as directed by the Controller.

Is it possible to add B1s no matter what modules I’ve purchased before (Bins, Robots, Ports, Grid)?

Yes. Black Line is backwards compatible with all Red Line modules. However, there may be less benefit in adding Black Line modules to a grid that cannot support higher speed.

What is the difference between the Narrow and Wide ConveyorPort?

The ConveyorPort is available in two sizes, narrow and wide, to accommodate for position on any side of the AutoStore Grid.

The wide ConveyorPort is designed for position on north/south sides of the Grid while the narrow is designed for east/west positioning. This provides additional flexibility in Grid design based on throughput needs.
