CONSTRUCTOR IPN AND TORNADO

Industrial Paternoster (IPN): Optimising storage space in industry

IPN brings stored goods within easy reach. The basic benefits of the DEXION-IPN are: shorter picking routes, less waiting time, optimum use of the smallest space, a safe operating environment for personnel and goods and improved working conditions.IPN brings stored goods within easy reach. The basic benefits of the IPN are: shorter picking routes, less waiting time, optimum use of the smallest space, a safe operating environment for personnel and goods and improved working conditions.

Goods are easily accessible allowing comfortable handling while increasing the turnover of goods smoothly and efficiently. The savings potential of the IPN is particularly welcome in times of constantly rising costs.

Bar code scanning increases safety in handling

In cases when there are lot of different items stored in the vertical carousel and the items are well defined with barcodes, the right solution is to connect a bar code reader to the control unit to make it simpler to handle the unit. This also gives less errors when
picking. If the unit is connected to a host system, you can also print out labels for picked goods if needed.

The advantages of using an IPN:

  • Low maintenance operation and reliable service.
  • Customised cost effective solutions achieved at a competitive price.
  • We provide solutions in line with your requirements.
  • Easily integrated into existing concepts for production and logistics.
  • Confidence guaranteed by decades of experience, with hundreds of installations worldwide.
  • Detailed technical solutions for users who require optimum storage facilities.
  • IPN with a conveyor system for delivering and picking of parts used in manufacturing.
  • Designed for daily stop and go operations.
  • Equipped with all the features needed for a safe and reliable operation.
  • Maximum security and optimised ergonomic solutions for the operator.

KASTEN TORNADO AUTOMATED VERTICAL STORAGE

The KASTEN-Tornado is a modern, silent and rapid operating automatic vertical storage system based on the latest development standards using servo technology. Goods are stored with minimum loss of space. The unique design of the Tornado optimises storage and picking efficiency within the smallest possible cube. The rapid servo drives controlling the vertical and horizontal movements reduce picking and storage times while allowing the transfer of goods quickly and safely to and from their selected storage locations. Thanks to the Tornado's unique simple design and structure its reliability is high and service requirements low.

EUROT AUTOMATED OFFICE STORAGE MACHINE

Eurot is an automated filing system consisting of rotary shelves for storage and distribution of documents; it is the ideal solution for limited spaces, and in conditions where rapid consultation is required: shelves containing the filed material always travel the shortest distance to reach the consultation zone. Eurot is an automated filing system consisting of rotary shelves for storage and distribution of documents; it is the ideal solution for limited spaces, and in conditions where rapid consultation is required: shelves containing the filed material always travel the shortest distance to reach the consultation zone.

Thanks to the vast range of different Eurot models and the versatility of their internal accessories, it is possible to file away a host of different materials such as cards, front and side suspended files, resting folders, drawings either open or rolled up , plastic containers, filing elements and various other material, thereby making them highly adaptable to a vast variety of different requirements in terms of space, weight, material concentration or division.

Eurot can be fitted with various types of keyboards according to the operational requirements of the user; from the most basic shelf request to highly sophisticated requirements for the recall of the actual filed documents and even fully integrated file management.


CONVEYOR SYSTEMS

Gravity Conveyor System - Gravity conveyors are the cost effective solution to many materials handling needs. The rollers reduce surface friction and allow goods to be moved manually without the aid of power. They suit flat based goods or those which are transported in flat based containers. They can support loads up to 110kg per metre. Pallet Conveyor System - The new modular pallet conveyor comprises heavy duty chain conveyor, roller conveyor, chain transfer and turntable modules. The flexible pallet conveyor system is designed to handle the full range of Euro pallet sizes, as well as the popular Chep type 1200 x 1000mm pallet, with loads up to 1500kg. Belt Driven Conveyor Systems

Modular Roller Conveyor Systems
For packages as small as 250mm in length. Handles Packages up to 30kg (or 50kg Eurototes). Conveyor widths from 300mm to 800mm. Land and right hand drive systems. Speeds up to 114m/min.

Belt Driven Conveyor Systems
Belt conveyors are designed for applications where improved load control and speed of operation are important factors.

Lineshaft conveyors
For packages as small as 250mm in length. Handles packages up to 30kg at speeds of up to 30m/min.

Heavy Duty Belt Conveyor System
The Heavy Duty Belt Conveyor is a robustly engineered product that operates quietly and requires minimal maintenance. Belt widths from 600-12oomm with 1000kg belt loading capacity.

Multiple Belt Conveyor System
A flexible, low maintenance, high throughput Package Handling System. For use with plastic/cardboard totes. Maximum weight 30kg. Consisting of straight frames within which are mounted ZLP Accumulation Zones or Roller Transfers and 30 degree Merging Spur Units RH and LH. Speed ranging from 30 to 110m/min as standard. Conveyor widths from 400mm to 800mm. Fully CE compliant. Low noise levels of less than 65db.

Powered Roller Conveyor Systems
T
his is probably the simplest conveyor of its kind. Driven by Itoh Denki motorised rollers containing dc brushless motors, the conveyor consists of minimal moving parts and comes supplied with integral photocell detectors.

The conveyor just needs a 24v and 0v dc supply and it runs. It will automatically switch off zones when products begin to queue up, creating intelligent zero line pressure accumulation. It can even handle loads that are greater than a zone length - treating a long load as efficiently as a short one, irrespective of how many sensors it covers.
