The ConveyorPort uses a conveyor belt to move Bins to the operator. For many users, all they need is the ConveyorPort 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.
ConveyorPort is a workstation in its simplest form. Bins are 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
Yes. All Ports can toggle between picking and replenishment.
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.
Yes, a Robot doesn't leave the port "empty handed". When dropping off a Bin, it will wait at the Port to collect a Bin to deliver back to a spot in the top layer of the Grid as directed by the Controller.
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.
The ConveyorPort is available in two sizes, narrow and wide, to accommodate for a 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.
Consumer behavior has changed; supply chains have not. Let's talk today to see how a simple ConveyorPort can increase fulfillment speed and efficiency for your customers.
