TransferTower automated storage system

Automated storage system TransferTower consists of 2 to 4 TwinTower® automated storage systems connected through a transfer station, which enables the transport of shelves between the storage columns. The transfer station usually moves at the top of the storage system and the shelves are delivered to it by elevators moving between the storage columns. The connection of the automated system with the transfer station enables  access to every good kept in the system through the each loading-unloading station. The TransferTower automated storage system can be placed in series to the longer or shorter side of the shelf.

Advantages

  • access to all sheets stored in the whole system through each loading-unloading stations
  • possibility of simultaneous loading and picking of sheets
  • storage space saving
  • possible integration with production process machines
  • control over manufacturing and storage processes possible thanks to integration with ERP and WMS systems
  • work safety increase

Features of the TransferTower system

  • possible configuration of the system to store sheets in different dimensions – 3 m x 1,5 m, 4 m x 2 m, 6 m x 2 m
  • max. shelf load capacity – 5 000 kg
  • storing itself goods (without pallets)
  • maximal system height up to 20 m allows to fully use the storage space
  • possible outdoor installation
  • loading-unloading stations can be located on different levels of the building
  • different types of loading and unloading stations are available, including a duo station with two access levels
  • optional weighing device on the loading-unloading station
  • different possible configuration of the system and drive directions of loading-unloading stations
  • intuitive and easy to control software made by Baumalog that enables the integration with ERP and WMS systems

Operating principles

The animation shows how the TransferTower automated system for storing steel sheets works. The system consists of 4 storage columns, 2 loading-unloading stations and a transfer station.

Follows sequentially: transporting new sheets – depalletization – transporting the shelf into the storage column – loading the next shelf from the storage column and transporting it on to the transfer station – transporting the shelf on to the elevator in the second storage column – transporting the shelf on to the loading-unloading station.
