Tower Storage Machines are often used in the production for intermediate storage of material, near the cutting or bending machines, or as an inter-operative warehouse. The material stored is typically sheet metal or profile rods and tubes.
These systems offer the benefits such as:
- “Goods to operator” principle
- Quick and full access to stored goods
- Effective space utilization
- High capacity on small footprint
- Safe environment
- User friendly control system
GMH Tower: Mono, Double or Multi Tower storage system
The extractor which is part of the lift transfers the loading units, either between the storage locations within the system or to the operator area, from where handling can be carried out in ergonomic height. The vertical system can be fitted with more operator areas, either at front and/or at the side.
The operator area design allows you to load and unload entire packages of heavy material using a forklift, or to handle individual pieces, manually by a crane or automatically with in-out feeder. The operator area can also be equipped with a weight to register the weight of the material being loaded or unloaded.
A touch screen on the control panel enables manual or automatic mode of storage operations. The control system provides the operator with high-quality visualization of operational and diagnostic information. The control system is prepared for external communication and integration with Warehouse Management Systems.
It is possible to combine individually working Tower Storage Machines to create a controlled multi-warehouse system.
