AutoStore Goods-to-Person Piece Pick Subsystem
The AutoStore subsystem is standardized using modular components. The robot, bin, and grid are pre-engineered and manufactured as a standard component.
The robots drive on the top of the grid to access inventory stored in the bins below. The bins are put-away, retrieved, and delivered to the workstations as required. There are no dedicated access aisles so the entire cube can be used to store product. The system can be installed in oddly shaped buildings, around pillars, or on several levels to fill out warehouse space to its maximum potential.
The AutoStore subsystem is built around the “goods-to-person” principle. The key benefits of goods-to-person include: eliminating worker travel time to pick locations, picking productivity, omitting dedicated pick faces (no slotting, re-slotting, manual replenishment), product security/inventory accuracy, order processing speed, and order accuracy.
