Lean-Lift® Vertical Lift Modules
Maximum storage for items of all sizes
Hänel’s high-tech Lean-Lift® automated storage system is the ideal solution for cost-effective product handling. It saves time, cuts labor costs, and ensures an ultra-efficient workflow. Best of all, the Lean-Lift increases available storage space by more than 60% by fully utilizing available room height. Each vertical module stores parts in height-optimized positions producing maximum storage capacity within a minimum footprint.
Size and spacing of storage positions are fully adaptable to the requirements of each customer. Hänel also offers customized special features such as Pick-o-Light for higher speed item location and retrieval and voice-control picking.
Lean-Lift® systems are equipped with microprocessor lift control systems to support efficient storage operations. The software provides for integrated systems management for full digital control of operations.
Fast and efficient
The Hänel Lean-Lift® brings the requested item automatically to the access area in seconds, where it can be retrieved at the optimum ergonomic height. “Goods to man” is the motto instead of “man to goods”. Access times are radically reduced and order-picking performance substantially improved.
Over 60% more space
The Hänel Lean-Lift® uses the available room height, storing parts in height-optimized, high-density positions so that no space is lost. This produces maximum storage capacity on a minimal footprint, cutting costs and ensuring the complete and economical use of available space.
Stores parts of all sizes and weights
The Lean-Lift® is designed with fully customizable storage spaces to handle items of all sizes and shapes. The robust equipment has a load-bearing capacity of up to and beyond 2,000 lbs.
Optimal parts management
State-of-the-art Hänel microprocessor controllers can be used as stand-alone inventory management systems or communicate with customers' own data processing systems. A current overview of inventory is available at all times.
Extra high, extra wide access openings and electronically controlled, high-speed doors deliver items to workers at multiple locations at the correct, ergonomic height.
Light sensor precision
Integrated storage slot profiles are equipped with light barriers to measure part height and automatically select in the ideal, space-saving storage space.
Hänel has a variety of container widths, depths and other features to accommodate storage of specific parts such as tool inserts, small parts and holders for milling cutters. For the electronics industry, containers can be supplied with an anti-static coating.
Fold down support rails are available for heavy parts along with transporter carts and motorized ejectors. For pallet handling, access openings can be added “flush to the floor” to accommodate removal by hand trucks or fork lifts.
