parts are needed from the incoming bin along with a picture of the item to help with identification. Most picks can
be completed within 30 seconds and total orders within 90
seconds, even those requiring multiple parts from different
bins. The system is capable of delivering 140 bins an hour to
each processing station.
A key benefit of the AutoStore
is the way it consolidates parts.
The process differs from the
order consolidation in one step,” says Todd Radwell.
