Hänel Lean-Lift - Automate Warehouse Storage and Save Floor Space

Hänel Lean-Lift Vertical Warehouse Storage

Falling under our wide range of warehouse storage solutions, the Hänel Lean-Lift is comprised of storage shelves located at both the back and front of the machine, where items and parts are stored in containers using height optimised positions. A quality, innovative vertical storage system for management and organisation.

Ergonomic retrieval

The storage locations are accessed electronically using the extractor, which automatically stores or retrieves the requested container. Items, parts or tools are delivered to the the retrieval area at ergonomic height for the user. The user-friendly system is fully adjustable to operational requirements.

The Hänel Lean-Lift® combines storage rationalisation and security: at the centre of this closed vertical storage system is a computer-controlled positioning lift, the ‘extractor’. With Vertical Storage Shelves located at the back and the front of the machine, items are stored here in containers using height optimised positions.

Every shelf position can be automatically modified and dynamically altered to suit stored item height, providing extremely high storage density.

Equipped with a fully integrated controller system, the warehouse inventory management system also comes with additional comprehensive Warehouse Management Software options.

Used across industries

The Hänel Lean-Lift can be used across a wide variety of industries; medical technology, electrical engineering (with ESD versions available), automotive, aircraft, mechanical engineering, mail-order, pharmaceutical and wholesale trades.
