Cube Automated Storage & Retrieval System (CASRS)

Cube automated storage and retrieval systems or hive systems are densely packed automated tote storage systems. These systems use interlocking bins stacked inside an aluminum grid or cube with no space for aisles. A fleet of robots drive across tracks on top of the grid and work together to move bins out of the system and deliver to operator ports.

Cube automated storage and retrieval systems have the theoretical highest density of product per square foot of building but not necessarily highest pick rate or order throughput. They are not well suited for efficiently handling orders that combine high velocity and slow moving items.

This robotic cube storage is the newest type of ASRS technology.
