1. General description „Single Media Paternoster“:

The „Single Media Paternoster“ is used, as link between the warehouses, the archives, and the input and output stations. Special developed low noise Paternoster profiles, modular designed, are the basis for the TMA Paternoster. Easy integration into the logistic field, low noise level and a high reliability are the key facts of the TMA „Single Media Paternoster“. The staff requirements to operate the „Single Media Paternoster“ on an technical aspect are kept very low.


Vertical transport:

The vertical transfer of medias/goods/boxes between floors could be realized with our fully automated paternoster system. The gentle transport of the Medias and the low noise emission for the staff and the users is characterizing our product.


System Advantages:

  • Fully automated and constant library business
  • Gentle vertical transport medias/goods/boxes
  • Short reaction time between input and output station
  • Low noise emission for the staff and the users
  • Reliable and powerful
  • Vertical sorting





Project advantages:

  • Low space requirements
  • Easy integration of further levels
  • Only one central shaft necessary
  • Horizontal belt conveyors can be reduced to a minimum


Functional description:

The Paternoster is working with a transfer station, which is whether stationary or used as a lifting device and whether comes with a toothed belt or rollers, to load or unload the paternoster.

The load and unload procedure of the paternoster is fully automated, the paternosters comes with an customized TMA Siemens S7 software control system

The integration of the return stations and the belt conveyors into the Siemens S7 control system of the paternoster is done by TMA

TMA is taking care to potential free contacts in the main cabinet, based on the project requirements.
