Hänel Lean-Lift®

High-Speed Generation

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.

Extractor with 4-point suspension

Safe, reliable and stable

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.



The time-proven, low-noise 4-chain technology

of the Hänel vertical lift module

  • Roller chains are durable, so no fatigue failures.
  • Long lifecycle.
  • No replacement necessary at fixed service intervals.
  • Roller chains have a high rate of efficiency (98 %).
  • Accurate positioning because of high rigidity.
  • No slip on emergency stops.


Hänel EcoDrive®

CO2 reductions thanks to efficient energy recovery

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.
