Tornado Vertical Lift Storage System

What is the Tornado Vertical Lift?

Tornado vertical lift machines increase floor space capacity and handling efficiency, both in picking and replenishing, increasing productivity and customer satisfaction.

Thanks to its ingenious lifting device, the servo-operated automated storage system is rapid, energy-efficient and silent. Tornados are the perfect solution for storing and handling the small items in your warehouse or shop.

Picking from a Tornado could not be easier. The operator enters a product code, either manually, using a bar-code reader or from a higher-level system. The Tornado then retrieves the required tray and brings it to the operator at the optimum height so the item can be picked.

Key benefits of the Tornado vertical lift system

Increased Productivity

The Tornado's speed both horizontally and vertically offers extensive storage and rapid retrieval making packing faster, serving the operator in the most ergonomic way.


Easy to use interface is simple to use and tailor to each customer’s needs making it extremely versatile.


The system's intelligent engine attempts to place popular active trays close to the retrieval point. This makes the Tornado system especially useful for seasonal products.


The Tornado has password-protected access levels for added security and offers safe and secure storage for your small parts handling.


The clear and straightforward structure makes the system extremely reliable and therefore cheap to maintain.

Increased Floor Space

We transformed a 100sqm slotted angle shelving components store to a space of just 13.5sqm with the Tornado. As well as automating and speeding up the picking process for mail orders it enabled the vacant floorspace to be recycled, bringing back into central stores, spare parts from other service centres around the country.

Where can it be used

The Tornado Vertical Lift System brings many improvements to storage and picking. It can be customised in depth and width to fit your requirements and can range from 4m to 15m in height.

We now have spare capacity in this warehouse to store refurbished or soon to be worked on engines, allowing us to expand that side of our business too.
