Hänel Rotomat® systems speed up shipping processes

Faster processes in the shipping department  

Two heavy-duty Hänel Rotomat® storage systems are increasing the speed of shipping processes at Hänel Precision Gears. The vertical carousel lifts provide space-saving storage and support ergonomic retrieval of gears, shafts and drive wheels.   

Direct integration and more speed thanks to prepositioning   

Both Hänel Rotomat® storage systems are fully integrated in our production processes. Fast access to finished gears and other components is of vital importance, along with systematic and space-saving storage.   

The lift systems are linked to the Infra-PPS ERP system without any need for additional middleware. Orders are transmitted directly to the storage systems – we do not use paper lists – and employees do not have to walk long distances. These employees use the MP-12N stand-alone controller to confirm item retrieval on the convenient touch screen. 

If items intended for one order are distributed across both Rotomat® systems, the prepositioning feature of the multifunction carriers speeds up the picking process considerably.

The heavy-duty multifunction carriers can handle a maximum payload of more than 580 kg. About 16,000 items are neatly stored in both of our Hänel Rotomat® systems – the maximum capacity is 9.2 tons. The carriers with fold-down front panels ensure that employees can safely and ergonomically remove even the heaviest items from the Rotomat® systems.   

Low energy consumption, maximum storage capacity, optimized ergonomics   

The Hänel Rotomats® are equipped with the intelligent EcoMode® energy-saving management system. This minimizes the energy consumption of the storage systems when they are not in operation. The space-saving and safe storage offered by Hänel Rotomat® systems provides maximum capacity within a minimum footprint. 

The central integration of the heavy-duty storage systems optimizes ergonomics and intelligent routing in the shipping area.
