No, mixing different Bin sizes is not supported by AutoStore.
However, movable dividers offer the most efficient and flexible solution. They allow customers to easily create various-sized compartments in Bins and fully utilize the maximum internal storage volume.
We have two Bin types available in the 220, 330, and 425 mm sizes:
Yes, up to 25 mm (0.98 inches) under the top corner of the Bin.
Yes. AutoStore™ Bins are also prepared for the usage of physical and adjustable dividers which insert into the Bin to create multiple compartments (up to 32). It is up to the WMS to administrate and maintain the content of the Bins (stock/SKU).
No, this could cause errors in the system. Sensors at the port will keep the system from accepting an overweight Bin.
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.
Approximate inside dimensions:
It is not an official AutoStore module at present, but we are developing a new bin with a lid.
No. R5 is too short to handle the 425 mm Bin.
R5 can access and transport the 220 mm and 330 mm Bins.
R5+ and B1 can access and transport the 220 mm, 330 mm, and the 425 mm Bins.
Customers can use a maximum of 24 layers of Bins for 220 mm Bins, 16 layers for 330 mm Bins, and 14 layers for 425 mm Bins.
Key products accommodated with the taller 425 mm Bins are footwear and semiconductors.
AutoStore™ can fit any warehouse or fulfillment center.
