Any shape and size - with ease
The size and shape of the AutoStore™ Grid is restricted only by the warehouse around it, ensuring optimal space usage. This is the framework holding it all together.
Building the AutoStore™ Grid is only a little more complex than putting together a handful of LEGO™ blocks. All AutoStore components are standardized modules that are simple to assemble and easy to connect; there are only 17 different parts.
The Grid is topped off with tracks running in X and Y directions, allowing the robots to access any cell inside the Grid. The standard Double/Double Grid (DDG) provides a double rail in both directions, allowing robots to pass each other on all sides.
Connect Grids on two different floors and extend Bin reachability with the AutoStore Bin Lift™ Grid-to-Grid (G2G) configuration and get the most out of your warehouse space — keeping real estate costs down.
The modular design of AutoStore means extending the Grid is pain-free. Like adding a room to your house, Grid extensions are isolated to an area having no impact or downtime to regular operations during construction. All that's needed is a flat floor and common hand tools to put it all together.
The Grid Bracer™ is a module that can be added to the AutoStore Double/Double Grid to make the Grid self-supporting.
With the Grid Bracer there is no need for additional structural construction to the Grid around pillars or to walls. This adds flexibility and significantly reduces system installation lead time and costs.
Max height is 16 of the 330-mm Bins or 24 of the 220-mm Bins resulting in 5.4 m (17.75 feet). With Robots and recommended service space, the height is 7.52 m (24.67 feet) in total.
The max height for the 425-mm Bins is 14 high of the 425-mm resulting in 6 m (19.6 feet). With Robots and recommended service space, the height is 8.18 m (26.84 feet) in total.
This depends on the design. At the very least, the minimum height must be as the following plus the Grid track above it:
This Bin depth provides the needed height for a Port.
Less space is needed if the track is used "only" as a road for transporting Bins between different Grids. In this case, the design can either be a track with no Bins or a track with at least one Bin plus the track above.
Our recommendation is at least 2 meters (6.5 feet) free height above the Grid. You can get a lower clearance accepted, but this needs to be clarified and approved by the local authorities and the local AutoStore distributor.
No, AutoStore can be designed around obstacles like pillars, pipes and walls.
Yes. Bin Lift Grid-to-Grid (G2G) configuration allows Bins to flow between Grids on different floor levels.
Note that the Bin Lift 2.0 is currently only available in the EU, United States, Canada, and Japan.
We are working on adding more countries with the applicable product approvals. Note that it may take longer in some countries to get approval.
Consumer behavior has changed; supply chains have not. Let's talk today to see how an AutoStore Grid can fit your warehouse and help you stand out from your competitors.
