The Hanel Lean Lift Vertical Lift Module is both storage efficiency and goods protection in one: at the center of the ‘cabinet’ is a computerized lift – called the extractor. In front and behind it are the storage shelves. This is where the articles are stored in containers. The storage locations are accessed through electronic control by the extractor. It stores or retrieves the container requested. The system is operated comfortably at the optimum ergonomic height at the retrieval zone.
All Hanel Storage Systems products are available on the GSA Federal Supply Schedule. Please contact us for more information.
With the Hanel Lean Lift Vertical Lift Module, we offer a high quality, high-tech warehouse organization system with readily available materials which reduces work time, warehouse space and cost which provides a problem free work environment. The Hanel Lean Lift Vertical Lift Module utilizes the available ceiling height – similar to a high bay/miniload system. In contrast to a high bay/miniload system, however, the Lean-Lift stores the parts on a height optimized basis avoiding wasted space. This means maximum storage capacity on a minimal footprint.
The fully automated Hanel Lean Lift Vertical Lift Module brings the required articles to the retrieval zone in seconds. The state of the art microprocessor control systems from Hanel can communicate with your host computer on a real time basis installation or be used as a standalone warehouse management system. An overview of the inventory status is available at all times, shortages of parts are eliminated and the inventory can be reduced. Use of the Hanel Lean Lift Vertical Lift Module ensures a constant overview of inventory status at all times.
