Vertical technology – simply brilliant

The Hänel Lean-Lift® – the original with the profile wall

The Hänel Lean-Lift® is the logical compliment to the time-proven Hänel Rotomat® principle. The automated ‘high-bay warehouse in a cabinet’.

The Hänel Lean-Lift® is both storage rationalization and goods protection in one: At the center of this closed system is a computer-controlled positioning lift – the ‘extractor’.

In front of it and behind it are the storage shelves. This is where the articles are stored in containers in height optimized positions. The storage locations are accessed automatically under electronic control by means of the extractor, which stores or retrieves the requested container. The goods are then delivered to the retrieval area at the correct ergonomic height.

This ingenious principle finds applications in a wide variety of industries. Used in the medical technology and electrical engineer­ing sectors (for which ESD versions are possible) and also in the automotive, aircraft and pharmaceutical industries or in mechanical engineering, the mail-order and wholesale trades – the Lean-Lift® is the ideal buffer, dispatch, production or tool store, to name but a few sectors that demonstrate its versatility.

Advantages of automated high-bay storage

  • Fast storage and retrieval times.
  • High storage density, even when articles have different heights.
  • Goods to man is the motto instead of man to goods: this saves time.
  • Improved order-picking performance.
  • High economic efficiency and cost savings.
  • Protection of inventory.
  • Storage and handling of bulky and heavy parts.
  • Load-bearing capacity of up to 1,000 kg per tray.
  • Load-bearing capacity of up to 60,000 kg per Lean-Lift® (higher payloads on request).
  • Integrated storage management.

The Hänel profile wall

Appealing design, convincing functionality

It was 30 years ago that Hänel revolutionized vertical lift technology by inventing the profile wall. Precision hold for the containers and maximum compaction of the storage volume thanks to the integrated slot profile.

An ingenious development! The Hänel slot profile in 75mm or 90mm steps offers a multiplicity of options:

The slot profile is a built-in fixed wall with integrated slots in 75 mm or 90 mm steps, and is the ultimate solution for achieving optimal space-saving storage.
    
Convincing simplicity: the high-stability Hänel profile wall!

Hänel is the inventor of the profile wall – with over 30 years of experience!
The profile wall with its high stability and precision is fixed to the rectangular profiles at the factory.

On the outside the typical Hänel design, on the inside a stable slot system!

 

The Hänel height sensors

in steps of 25, 37.5, 75 and 90 mm

Different height-measuring light barriers, designed to match each model's slot profile exactly, measure the inventory items and store the container according to the
respective height without any loss of space! With the Hänel space-saving pitch, the distortion-free Hänel multifunction containers and the optimization run you will achieve maximum compaction of the storage volume.

Let the air out of your store!

The space-saving pitch

Optimal utilization of vertical space

The pluses

  • Optimal and compact storage even when articles are of differ­ent heights.
  • The Lean-Lift® consistently offers compact and variable storage – without the need for any mechanical or electronic adjustment.

    
Hänel multifunction containers

  • Full-length, integrated supports offer optimum utilization of the storage height with maximum rigidity.
  • Containers with the 75 mm single pitch or with space-saving 37.5 mm and 25 mm pitches in conjunction with the Hänel profile wall offer numerous possible combinations.

Less warehouse is more

The Hänel Lean-Lift® offers over 60 % more storage capacity than a miniload system/rack store on the same footprint

One glance in the Hänel Lean-Lift® shows the advantages clearly: Optimum storage of highly varied parts without any loss of space! Key points speak in favor of the Hänel Lean-Lift®:

 

Distinct advantages over conventional rack storage and MLS

 

  • Storage capacity can be adapted step by step.
  • More than one person at a time can operate the lift and process jobs.
  • Retrieval times are considerably shorter.
  • Units can be added, expanded or separated at a later time.
  • Better utilization of storage volume thanks to height-optimized storage.
  • Decentralized storage right in the production hall.

 

The key to more flexibility

The Hänel Lean-Lift® system offers unlimited variation possibilities.
Each Hänel Lean-Lift® can be used as a stand-alone system.

By adding other Lean-Lifts® you can expand or alter your storage capacity at any time without any problem. Making maximum use of the available space. Hänel Lean-Lifts® can be installed next to each other and even span several building levels, with multiple access points one above the other. This creates the maximum possible storage space on a minimal footprint. Height changes can be made post-installation using solid slot-in joints with plug welds. The Hänel service team also takes care of relocations quickly and reliably.
 

Advantages of the Hänel Lean-Lift® system

  • Every square meter is optimally used – the essence of economic efficiency.
  • Easy adjustment to operational requirements.
  • More than one person at a time can operate the lift and process jobs.
  • Improvement in storage management.
  • Greater flexibility with step-by-step expansion.
  • Clearly definable and manageable investment.

Two groups of Lean-Lifts® spanning multiple floors were docked onto the building from the outside so that the production area wasn’t sacrificed.
    
Each Hänel Lean-Lift® can be used as a stand-alone system. The store is gradually expanded by adding further Lean-Lifts® as needs grow. The Lean-Lifts® can even be combined to span several floors!
