Imagine a warehouse that saves up to 80% floor space, is scalable, and offers flexible capacity by storing goods in stacked bins serviced by high-speed robots. This is what you can achieve with AutoStore. 

How it works

The AutoStore system includes battery-powered robots, storage bins, operator ports, and an aluminum grid. The bins are housed in the grid and each order is processed at high speed, with the robots working on top to take bins to and from operators at designated ports. 

AutoStore systems are fully customizable to fit your available floor space in any geometric shape and size you may need, both in existing buildings and new ones.  In addition, they are scalable and modular. 

Need extra storage? Add grids and bins.
Need extra handling capacity? Add robots and operator ports.

AutoStore® consists of the The Red Line system & The Black Line system, offering different amounts of bins, bin heights and speed. Depending on your specific needs, Red Line and Black Line can operate independently or in combination.

Results

We can guarantee less picking errors, continuous inventory control, branch leading availability and no single point of failure. Overall AutoStore® will improve your ability to handle orders quickly and safely, giving you a competitive edge in the market.

Your benefits

Maximum space efficiency

AutoStore is the ultimate definition of space efficiency as it offers the best storage density of any automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS). An AutoStore grid can be adapted to almost any geometric shape and size, which enables optimal use of the building. This means that the system can be easily integrated into both existing and new buildings. AutoStore can also be installed on a mezzanine to make even better use of the hall space – see our customer TTI, Inc. as an example.

 

Modular design

AutoStore’s modular system makes it extremely easy to expand it with additional bins, ports and robots or to expand the grid – without interrupting ongoing operations. Adding more bins to the system will lead to an increased warehouse capacity. With additional picking stations and robots, more bins are presented to the workstations, which results in a higher performance.

 

Increased picking speed

An AutoStore warehouse continues to optimize itself during ongoing operation. Frequently needed items automatically stay in upper regions of the grid, whereas rarely used C-items automatically sink lower. Thus, the access times become shorter over time. Compared to manual storage, AutoStore can achieve a picking performance that is more than 10 times higher.

 

Improved picking accuracy

AutoStore only presents goods that need to be picked. Long walking distances are no longer necessary. This reduces the mental and physical strain on your employees and at the same time avoids picking errors. For solutions with bin dividers, i.e. when storing several items in one bin, the picking quality can be increased by using scanners.

 

Inventory security

The inventory is only available once a bin has been presented to a picking station. AutoStore bins are stored form-fitting one above the other. Only the bins on the top level are open – the goods in all other bins are thus stored protected from dust. In addition to continuous inventory control, AutoStore always enables maximum reliability and control over your warehouse processes.

 

Reliability and system availability

With an availability of 98,5%, AutoStore is the most efficient and reliable storage system in the world. The system’s unique redundancy means there is no single point of failure. If one robot breaks down, another robot takes over its job in real time and you can always deliver – which is a decisive competitive advantage for many of our customers!

 

Reduced carbon footprint

Traditional warehouses are designed to meet the needs of human labour. This is reflected in all areas – from the use of space to the lighting and the ambient conditions. Element Logic’s automated storage solutions offer space-saving and energy-efficient alternatives. An AutoStore system requires only 10% of the energy that comparable small parts storage solutions require.

 

Ergonomic workplaces

AutoStore robots automatically transport the right bins from the grid to the operator port. The staff no longer needs to lift bins or travel for miles between the shelves. This process significantly improves the work environment, making it safer and more ergonomic. The low training requirements and low complexity of the user interfaces also have a positive effect on personnel deployment.
