Swisslog Passes 300th AutoStore Project Milestone
2022 is a landmark year for Swisslog, a leading global provider of automated intralogistics technologies and the world’s leading integrator of AutoStore. The company now has 300 AutoStore projects in over 26 countries worldwide, featuring a total of more than 7 million storage bins and using no less than 10,000 robots.
Demonstrating Swisslog’s breadth of capabilities, the 300 AutoStore projects to date range across three main categories: micro-fulfillment centers (MFC), stand-alone projects and large, complex, fully integrated solutions.
Growing in popularity, micro-fulfillment centers typically repurpose existing facilities, such as a retail store. They offer an enhanced customer experience and can normally be turned around in as little as six months.
Leveraging Swisslog’s very lean project set up means stand-alone projects are very often completed within six months for fast implementation and faster ROI. Swisslog AutoStore customers enjoy a single, dedicated contact who takes overall responsibility for every aspect of the project, assisting from first enquiry to project completion and beyond.
Complex and fully integrated AutoStore solutions have longer lead times and typically have a phased implementation.
Swisslog AutoStore installations are managed and controlled using the company’s SynQ modular software platform for warehouse management. The SynQ AutoStore module has been specifically designed by Swisslog’s in-house software experts to maximize the efficiency of AutoStore and to fully integrate with more complex warehouse applications. It embeds intelligence in the operation and synchronizes the performance of automated warehouse equipment in the best possible way.
Using robots and bins to quickly process small parts orders, AutoStore provides better use of available space than any other automated system. Its unique design enables direct stacking of bins on top of each other and the storage of multiple SKUs in a single bin. The system naturally learns which products have a higher rotation, storing them on top layers to ensure faster picking times.
As well as being space and labor-saving, AutoStore improves productivity, quality and security. On brownfield sites, it can accommodate changes in business profile, ensuring enterprises remain future fit in dynamic business environments.
