TI becomes first semiconductor company to install AutoStore automated warehouse system

SINGAPORE: Further enhancing the efficiency and reliability of its product shipments throughout Asia, Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) has installed the AutoStore inventory management system in its Product Distribution Center (PDC) in Singapore.

This marks the first installation of AutoStore by a semiconductor company, as well as the first of its kind in Asia.

AutoStore uses state-of-the-art warehouse automation and reduces the amount of space required for inventory. Goods are stored in bins within an aluminum grid structure, and battery-driven robots move along rails on the top of the grid to store and retrieve product from the bins. The robots deliver requested goods to operator ports along the outside of the grid. TI's installation of this unique solution will include 63,000 storage bins for TI products.

A joint effort between TI and its logistics suppliers, DHL and Swisslog, the newly automated PDC began ramping this week and will be in full production by September.
