STIHL
Paternosters were replaced by Hänel Lean-Lifts for better performance.
Distribution depot for the Benelux countries for all components, spare parts and machines (17,000 different articles in stock).
Configuration
• 4 Lean-Lifts high-speed version with Vario Matic, 8 meters high
• ERP: Navision

Figures:
• 1,200 orders completed per day from the Lean-Lifts by one warehouseman.
• Pick errors are avoided thanks to LEDs without any loss of speed.
• 7,500 different articles are stored in the Lean-Lifts.
• Reliability is key, so the "Redundancy system" option was installed.

Software:
• Bidirectional link with Navision
• Module Label printing
• Vario-matic
• Redundancy system
• Batch picking
Because of the higher picking speed and the user-friendliness, it was worth while replacing the paternosters with the 4 Hänel Lean-Lifts.
