IntraLogisteX exhibitor AutoStore has announced the arrival of its R5+ Robot. The newest addition to the AutoStore Robot fleet will enable warehouses to manage larger items, thanks to the R5+’s capability 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.
What the R5+ constitutes is a more economically competitive offer to companies operating in a wider variety of markets, such as footwear, semiconductors, and other similar applications. The maximum Grid height for AutoStore customers utilising the R5+ with 425mm bins will be slightly higher than a Grid with the R5 using 330mm bins, creating a Grid composed of 14 layers of bins that is around 6,044mm tall.
“Sometimes the simplest solutions make the biggest transformation,” commented Carlos Fernández, Chief Product Officer at AutoStore. “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 e-commerce, has evolved to demand precision and speed. We’re committed to supporting our customers in becoming even more competitive in high throughput applications.”
The R5+ will continue to provide the fast and reliable service that the AutoStore system is known for, allowing customers to benefit from a solution that is capable of continuous operation.
