The Double Tornado maximises storage capacity and multiplies the picking speed. It offers the capacity of two machines but with only one picking hatch. 

The Tornado DT’s storage capacity has been doubled by integrating two standard Tornado units into one machine entity. Thanks to its ingenious lifting devices and transfer tables, the servo-operated Tornado automated storage system is fast, energy-efficient and silent.

The Tornado DT utilises the full height of the storage space, and it can be manufactured up to 15 metres tall. In comparison with conventional shelves, it arranges the stored goods to take only a tenth of the floor space.

Orderly and clean products

The automated storage system is a closed and secure storage solution for valuable and sensitive items. The products are protected from dirt and dust. Between two automatic systems, the Tornado DT features transfer tables that transfer the trays of the furthermost Tornado to the pick opening. As the operator collects the goods, the system is already retrieving a new tray. 

The Tornado DT offers a multitude of benefits:

  • More goods fit in the same space, with up to a tenfold increase in floor space
  • Picking is efficient and fast: up to 70% reduction in picking times
  • The system reduces picking errors
  • Operation is ergonomic with automatic delivery of trays to optimal working level
  • The system prevents unauthorised use and reduces losses
  • The products stay clean and orderly
  • The Tornado DT efficiently utilises the full storage space height
