Vertical storage systems limit the amount of floor space necessary for warehouse storage by instead using available room height. The Hänel Rotomat®, and Hänel Lean-Lift® are the two vertical storage systems we offer, with each possessing a unique flow to store and unload product.
The principle is simple. The applications are brilliant!
The compact design of the Hänel Rotomat® enables up to 60% more storage area to be created on a minimal footprint by making use of the available room height.
The operating principle
The Hänel Rotomat® creates an enormous amount of storage space on a small footprint. It works on the Ferris wheel principle, i. e. the archives come to the operator, not the operator to the archives.
The structural design
Self-supporting steel plate casing, comparable to the cellular structure used in the aircraft industry. Lockable, smooth-action sliding doors. Environmentally friendly powder coating, as well as impact-resistant and shock-proof stove enamel finishes. There are five attractive colors to choose from. Customized finishes are possible.
The drive system
Most Hänel Rotomat® storage carousels are powered by two 400-V three-phase motors.
Pole-switching three-phase motors are used as standard, enabling gentle but powerful acceleration and braking even under different load conditions.
The intelligent Hänel control systems
Powerful Hänel microprocessor control units offer the possibility of hooking up to computers and other peripheral devices, giving you an optimal overview at all times.
Hänel ensures maximum safety by using the Hänel safety threshold switches and light-barrier curtains compliant with DIN EN 15095. The Hänel Rotomat® carousels have the German GS mark and the Swiss SUVA inspection certificate attesting to their safety.
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.
