High speed lifting drives fast results
The Hänel Lean-Lift® is also available in a high-speed version. The vertical speed of travel, for example for containers with a load capacity of up to 500 kg / 1,104 lbs, is up to 2.3 m/ 7.5 ft per sec with an empty extractor, and up to 1.0 m/ 3.3 ft per sec with a loaded extractor. Depending on type, the extractor travels horizontally and jolt-free at a speed of up to 0.5 m/sec (1.6 ft/sec).
Moreover each Hänel Lean-Lift® is equipped with a soft start control with frequency converter.
The advantage: Gentle and rapid acceleration and braking.
The vertical carriage (extractor) has 4-point suspension...
This has enormous advantages:
- No tilting of the extractor.
- No problems with certain load imbalances, especially with heavy loads, and therefore a longer lifecycle.
- Easy maintenance access from the side.
- Easy attachment of the arresting device for the extractor.
A basic component for efficiency-enhancing is the high-performance drive technology of the Hänel Lean-Lift® generation high-speed
The basic prerequisites for high order-picking performance are high travel speeds by the extractor and consequently short access times for retrieving the stored goods.
Hänel’s Lean-Lifts® generation high-speed offer optimal conditions for this!
Lifts with container payloads up to 500 kg achieve the following speeds of travel:
with empty extractor 2,3m/s
with loaded extractor 1,0m/s
Depending on the travel rate, up to 40 % of the energy fed in previously for the upward run can be returned to the supply network!
The new Hänel EcoDrive® helps to save energy and consequently to reduce costs.
A new type of frequency converter uses the energy of the descending extractor and converts it back into electrical energy.
This is then fed back into the supply system and can be used elsewhere, for example on other Lean-Lifts® in a network.
