Polydentia SA | Tessin, CH

Clean and protected storage of medical products in three Hänel Rotomat® systems

Fast access, maximum storage volume and lower costs with the Hänel Rotomat® storage carousel

Polydentia SA manufactures medical products for dentistry at its site in the Swiss canton of Tessin. The family-owned business employees 23 people who are involved in the manufacture of dental matrices, splints, interdental wedges and similar products.

Three Hänel Rotomat® storage carousels installed at Polydentia support safe, secure and hygienic storage for finished products in the shipping department.

Utilization of the space from floor to ceiling provides maximum storage capacity within a very small footprint. The systems are based on the vertical carousel principle so that employees can ergonomically retrieve items without having to walk long distances.

The Hänel Rotomat® industrial systems also provide a clean environment for storing dental products. Finished products are protected from dust, contamination and light, not to mention unauthorized access.

Pick lists for employees in the shipping department are generated by the host SAP ERP system. Orders are processed according to the FIFO principle. System operators enter item numbers on the MP 12 N microprocessor controller. All of the pick positions are shown on the controller display. When the picks have been confirmed, the Hänel Rotomat® starts bringing the items to the operators automatically. The required items are optimally transported to the system access point where they are retrieved at an ergonomic height.

The warehouse management at Polydentia is integrated in the Hänel MP 100 D central controller. This controller manages the operation of all three Hänel Rotomat® systems. Polydentia is able to quickly and efficiently process more than 2,000 orders annually thanks to the space-saving and ergonomic storage of finished products in the Hänel systems.

The Hänel storage solutions save time and provide employees with a safe and ergonomic work environment!

Our investment in three Hänel Rotomat® industrial storage systems was the right decision. Access times have been reduced dramatically, helping us to cut costs and save money.
