Steel plate storage systems

Improving our customers’ storage, saving space, and increasing safety at work is our passion.

Steel plate storage system by LIPU has been designed to solve the most common problems in industrial warehouses. Lack of space, low time- and cost-efficiency can make storages the worst bottleneck in production, even more so when it comes to bulk and large material, such as steel plates and sheets. Unsuitable or impractical storage systems can also be unsafe for warehouse workers, increasing risks of accidents. LIPU has created and patented own steel plate storage system, which is meant to solve the most common problems and tailored to your warehouse needs and capacities.


Vertical Sheet Steel Storage Systems

Vertical sheet metal storage systems improve work safety, increase storage capacity of the warehouse and facilitate loading and unloading of the inventory. Using vertical racks for sheet metal storing is one of the most convenient solutions, valued by many warehouses for its practicality and efficiency. Adding automation to the system can make it even easier and turn vertical sheet metal storage into an elegant solution for the problem of sheet metal storing and handling.


LIPU – storage system for large steel plates and sheets

Safety for handling large steel sheets.

Based on patented technology, Lipu Oy has designed its LIPU product family for storing large metal sheet. Hydraulic-powered LIPU storage racks turn the desired sheet bundle into a horizontal position, making it easy to take either a single sheet or bundle of sheets from the storage and lift it with a bridge crane. Heavy steel sheet bundles can be browsed like books.

The range includes systems for 1.5 – 3.5 m wide and 3-16 m long sheets, with storage space up to 30 tons. One system can have up to 16 storage slots.


Significant space saver

Because of the LIPU storage system, even the largest sheet storage can be placed near the production machinery. The right sheet is instantly available and conveniently accessible, without any difficulties and downtime with transportation between production facilities.

The LIPU system can save up to 80% of the floor space required by the disk storage.


Modular structure

Due to the modular design, the LIPU storage system can be easily customized to the right sheet size and capacity.

Typical metal sheet sizes to store:

  • 1.5 x 6 m
  • 2.0 x 6 m
  • 2.0 x 8 m
  • 2.0 x 12 m
  • 2.5 x 6 m
  • 3.0 x 6 m

LIPU systems have options for 6, 8, 10, 12 or 16 storage slots.


Control options

The control of LIPU systems can be selected according to the degree of automation desired by the customer; both manual and automatic options are available and customizable.

The manual control is a fully controlled option, where a user keeps pressing the control button until the desired storage slot is available.

on a semi-automatic control device, the desired storage slot is selected from the touch screen.

It is also possible to control LIPU storage equipment through a factory system, where LIPU is a part of a fully automated warehouse.
