The world is changing. Technology advances, big data, and consumer expectations are driving the supply chain in real-time through advanced demand signaling. As a result, supply chains are rapidly changing.
AutoStore’s Black Line takes a different approach to increased demand. Unlike the Red Line that requires to port with a charging station, the B1 will never rest, not even for charging, the patented BattPack technology is the most innovative battery concept where the robot will pick up a fully charged battery whenever needed.
Not only does the Black Line never stop for charging, By having individual direct-drive motors in each wheelbase and removing the need for drive belts, the robot acceleration is 75% higher than that of R5. On average B1’s delivery performance is 20% higher than R5.
Performance meets production, taking a different approach to increased demand.
