New robot makes AutoStore more versatile
21 January 2022
AUTOSTORE HAS released the R5+ Robot.
The newest addition to the AutoStore Robot fleet will enable warehouses to manage larger items, with the R5+’s ability to handle bins up to 425mm, the tallest Bins available in the AutoStore system. Until now, this has been a premium feature possible only with AutoStore B1 Robot installations. The R5+ is now available for operations globally.
The maximum Grid height for AutoStore customers utilising the R5+ with 425 mm Bins will be slightly higher than a Grid with the R5 using 330 mm Bins, creating a Grid composed of 14 layers of Bins that is around 6,044 mm tall.
AutoStore chief product officer Carlos Fernández says: “Sometimes the simplest solutions make the biggest transformation. We continue to innovate to help retailers improve the customer experience they offer. If there is one thing we've witnessed over the past two years, it is that the retail landscape, particularly in regard to eCommerce, has evolved to demand precision and speed. We're committed to supporting our customers in becoming even more competitive in high throughput applications.”
