Dexion Tornado storage system is the latest in space saving warehouse storage, in comparison to your standard warehouse pallet racking system the Dexion Tornado storage system is well and truly supreme, in this blog we will be explaining how you can benefit from having a Dexion Tornado storage machine.

So how does it work?

First a product code is entered, either manually, with a bar-code reader or from a host system. The system then retrieves the required tray and brigs it to the operator, producing it at the optimal height for picking. The entire tray can even be taken out and transported to another work station.
