Tornado Lift Vertical Storage Machine for Small Parts
A luxury automotive manufacturer looked to improve their existing small parts storage, put to tender the opportunity for a partner to consult on, design and install a vertical storage system.
After a comprehensive proposal, Teccon secured the competitive tender with the versatile Tornado Vertical Storage Machine. The Tornado's superior usability and the ease of integration being key in the customers decision making process.
Vertical Storage Systems are becoming increasingly popular not only in the traditional warehouse settings, but further more to the ecommerce market. Their ability to store, retrieve and replenish large amounts of small parts in a concentrated space, all through a semi or fully automated interface both reduces the footprint in the warehouse and minimises manpower requirements.
The machines ability to accurately pick and present small parts faster than workers on foot, combined with precise stock control and instant reports make the decision to move to vertical storage a wise investment.
Our customers' existing small parts solution, due to expansion of in production, needed revising so this was the moment to consider a solution for the long term.
