AutoStore automated small parts storage system

IMA’s AutoStore automated small parts storage system efficiently picks and stores single items and small cases to make better use of available space and to increase efficiency at integrated goods-to-person workstations.

The AutoStore system at IMA contains 25,000 bins and provides approximately 63,000 locations by subdividing bins internally into 2-3 compartments.
