Improve comfort and speed
At a time when attracting and retaining labor is essential to
e-commerce operations, along comes AutoStore™ FusionPort. Built to keep workers happy and productive, it easily integrates with other technologies to create a comprehensive warehouse solution that meets sales demands.
FusionPort reduces fatigue and maintains comfort for those front-line workers that are essential to your success. Tilted Bin openings and ergonomic user interface positioning minimize reaching and twisting motions, allowing operators to comfortably perform repetitive tasks without fear of injury during long work shifts. To maximize safety, safety hatches stay closed until Bins are ready for picking, guaranteeing a safe and secure transfer of products from Robots to humans.
Two Bin openings operate independently with zero-to-low waiting times, facilitating faster order picking without impacting throughput. Visual picking aids cut operators’ time spent searching for items, enabling high pick accuracy and accelerating order fulfillment productivity and efficiency.
The Port’s dense design leaves plenty of space around its perimeter to integrate with conveyors, sorters, put walls, robotic piece pickers, or other material handling technologies. A pre-installed pick-to-light (PTL) system eliminates the need for external picking guidance.
The FusionPort will be the optimal choice for customers with a focus on operator well-being and third-party warehouse technology integration around the Port to create comprehensive warehouse workflows and processes – supporting you in improving both operator and system performance.
This could be achieved in a couple of ways.
One is through installing an overhang or placing the Port in a tunnel. This way, the Robots have more freedom to optimize routes in and out from the Port, ensuring high Port efficiency.
Second, optimizing the operator workflow is key. Ensuring easy access to package material and effective removal of finished packed goods are typical optimization points.
The third is by integrating with robotic piece picking.
FusionPort can buffer a maximum of four Bins inside the Port.
No, it is not possible to insert and remove Bins using FusionPort due to the tilt of the Bin openings and safety hatch. We recommend using ConveyorPort, CarouselPort, or transfer cells for insertion and removal of the Bins.
Yes. However, it is important to note that FusionPort is compatible only with the AutoStore system equipped with Router software and Double/Double Grid.
