H. Kraatz Oy, Finland

Due to growth of small-item storing, in 2007 H. Kraatz made a decision to rationalize the storing of small-items. Due to that decision an extension was built for Tornado DT’s.

In 2007 H. Kraatz invested in two Tornado DT, which were provided as small-item storages for the group.


Due to the extension, the warehouse area in Kraatz is now 10 300 square meters. In one Tornado DT two Tornado’s are set one behind the other, which doubles the storing capacity. At Kraatz the two Tornado DT are placed facing each other so together they got 4 Tornado’s capacity into one picking point. The system utilizes the entire height of the equipment, 13 meters. Working height is optimal, improving job safety and ergonomics. In addition the shelving and picking times are shorter due to fast vertical and horizontal movement of the machine.

Tray width: 4000 mm
Tray depth: 820 mm
Tray qty per DT-Tornado: 95 + 77
