In automation and mechanical engineering, workpieces often have to be stored temporarily to ensure a continuous production process.

The workpiece storage system as a paternoster was developed in order to be able to store as many workpieces as possible in the smallest possible space and to enable quick access during production if required.
In this example, setting workpieces were stored that were needed for setting up production machines.
If there is an increased need to store workpieces, a higher design is always possible with this storage unit.
Due to the modular design of the workpiece carriers, different workpiece shapes and different workpiece sizes can be stored temporarily in a production process.
The workpiece carriers can be individually read by means of a pin coding located underneath the pallets, thus enabling direct assignment of the workpieces.
