Headland Machinery is the exclusive Australian and New Zealand agent for the innovative Hänel Storage Systems. Hänel’s design principal is to maximise vertical height space, optimising available floor space and improve materials handling by bringing the part to the user, not the other way around. The result is more floor space, improved efficiency and a safer work environment. – in a nut shell, cost and time savings.
The Hänel Lean-Lift is the powerhouse of the Hänel range. Employing vertical lift technology, the Lean-Lift delivers storage efficiency, automated materials handling and goods protection in one unit. At the centre of the unit is an automated extractor (lift), with storage shelving in front and behind it. Shelves are accessed by the extractor, and presented to the operator at the retrieval point, located at optimum ergonomic height.
The Hänel Lean-Lift remarkable systems have many advantages and features:
Maximum utilisation of available floor space can be achieved, with Lean-Lifts situated side by side or across several floors, even allowing for the option of multiple retrieval points.
Storage capacity can be increased by up to 90%, with height optimised storage utilising previously unused but costly air space.
Handling of bulky and heavy parts is automated, with the unit doing all the lifting and carrying, the parts are bought to the user at optimum heights, including ground level for easy and safe pallet handling. Each shelf can hold up to 1,000kg, and the load-carrying capacity of each Lean-Lift is a whopping 60,000kg.
Computerised variable shelf heights and shelf location optimisation, allows for the storage of dissimilar sized parts, and ensures frequently used items are always close at hand.
