Tornado Vertical Lift Machines

Dexion Tornado storage machine is rapid, energy-efficient and silent automated storage and handling system, which operates on the "goods to person" principle. It is easy to tailor to each customer’s needs.


Tornado Lift machine offers safe and secure storage for storing and handling your small items in your warehouse or shop. The intelligent engine of the system attempts to place active trays close to the retrieval point. This makes the Tornado Lift machine especially useful for seasonal products. Tornado has password-protected access levels for added security.


The Tornado's speed both horizontally and vertically offers rapid shelving and picking. The clear and straightforward structure makes the system reliable and low-maintenance.


First, a product code is entered, either manually, with a bar-code reader, or from a higher-level system. The system then retrieves the required tray and brings it to the operator at the optimal height.
