The TwinTower® automated storage system is used to store long-load products (bars, profiles, pipes, etc.) and sheets (metal plates, boards, laminated panels, etc.), pallets and many other heavy and large objects.
The system consists of two storage columns and one transporting column with a moving extractor, shifting trays between the storage columns and the loading station. Additional motor located at the loading station level moves the trays outside the front storage column allowing for loading and unloading with a forklift truck.
Trays are located in storage columns at guides leading to storage place mounted every dozen or so centimetres.
Example of TwinTower® system used to store the aluminium profiles in the Aluprof S.A. company.
