Paternoster Vertical Storage Machine

The Paternoster Vertical Storage Machine is a secure and safe solution that offers automated storage for heavier or mixed size items. Offering good accessibility and clear overview of the goods stored while providing an excellent solution for reducing picking times.

The Paternoster System works through vertical rotation. The requested goods are transported to the operator by the shortest possible route and presented in an ergonomic position. 

With the particularly compact design, the Paternoster makes optimal use of available warehouse dimensions, from the floor up to the ceiling. Paternoster storage machine saves floor space up to 75% and offers efficient height optimised storage on a minimal footprint. Retrieval points can be located on different floor levels. 

Paternoster can be manually operated, but also features host-controlled order picking and highly-efficient batch picking. A large reduction in picking times is achieved just with batch picking, offering a quicker goods selection process. With the ability to easily link this machine to your ERP or WMS using our TCPlus software, managing your picking has never been easier.
