Hänel Lean-Lift® and Rotomat® storage systems – a winning team

For many years a leading medical technology enterprise in France has relied on powerful and flexible Hänel intralogistics solutions to support its business worldwide. An enormous increase in storage capacity – not to mention fast access to tools, production equipment and documents – was achieved through the installation of several Hänel Lean-Lift® and Rotomat® storage systems.

One Hänel Lean-Lift® in the packing department supports shipping processes. The Hänel system provides space-saving and ergonomic storage of instruction sheets and leaflets in several languages.

Ergonomic and error-free storage

Scanning an item number automatically sets an extractor in motion so that the specified multifunction container can be transported to the access point within seconds. The Hänel compartment and sub-level indicators show precisely where items are located on the container to ensure error-free retrieval.

One Hänel Rotomat® and two Hänel Lean-Lift® systems are integrated directly in the production environment. These systems function as a central depot for tools, measuring devices and consumables for various types of machines. In addition to providing safe, secure and systematic storage, the Hänel solution has also freed up more floor space for production processes.

The company’s Facility Management Department operates an additional Hänel Rotomat® to provide neat and transparent storage of spare parts and tools needed for maintenance processes.

The multifunction carriers in the Hänel system offer various configuration options to ensure flexibility in response to constantly changing storage requirements. Fold-down front panels support ergonomic access whenever employees need to retrieve large, bulky or heavy items from the storage system.

No more bottlenecks thanks to the Hänel Lean-Lift®

Located in a tight space inside the building (see photo, below left), a narrow high-bay Lean-Lift® stores fittings and equipment for production machinery. These items can be retrieved quickly and flexibly as needed.

One controller for all requirements

The Lean-Lift® systems are operated with the compact Hänel MP 12 N controller. The systems are easy to use thanks to a wide range of functions.

Hänel intralogistics solutions have made a major contribution to optimizing warehouse processes and improving efficiency at the customer’s site.

In addition to saving space and time, the Hänel solutions reliably safeguard the valuable inventory while also reducing costs.
