The High-speed Hänel Lean-Lifts® with ESD protection boost order picking efficiency and ergonomics
Storz Medical AG develops shock wave devices with high precision at the company site in Tägerwilen. Eight Hänel Lean-Lifts®, of which six are high-speed versions, are at the heart of the warehouse and distribution center. In addition to fast order picking for customer shipments, the Hänel vertical lifts are mainly used to provide the production department with a constant supply of parts.
The Hänel Lean-Lifts® provide storage capacity from the floor to the ceiling and contain components needed for manufacturing, as well as spare parts and accessories for customers.
The Hänel Lean-Lifts® have increased overall storage capacity while improving ergonomics and order picking performance at the same time.
Many of the electronic components are very sensitive – these are stored in more than 500 environmentally friendly ESD cartons in four different sizes. Hänel’s intelligent height sensors make sure that items are stored in the most space-saving way possible.
'Storz Medical AG has relied on Hänel intralogistics solutions for more than ten years now and is fully satisfied with the results. The company plans to order three more Hänel Lean-Lifts® to make processes faster and even more efficient.'

When large orders need to be filled, several employees can simultaneously retrieve items from the lifts to ensure faster delivery
The storage systems fully utilize the vertical height of the building so that more floor space is available in the warehouse
