Storage and management of tools for vehicle service and repair
Tool storage in the Hänel Lean-Lift®
For better efficiency and cost-effectiveness, the Jung Volkswagen dealership in Sinsheim stores all of its standard and special tools in a Hänel Lean-Lift®.
Central tool provisioning
In the past tools and repair kits were kept on shelves and in drawer modules. These units were located at various points throughout the repair shop. Now all tools are kept in a Hänel Lean-Lift® that is easily accessible.
There is no need to search for specific tools in different places. And that saves time for service personnel. Up to 1400 different tools are neatly stored in one system with a minimum footprint. Compared to the previous situation, the Hänel solution saves a considerable amount of space.
Management according to the BER list
By coupling the Hänel system controller with SEPP24 tool management software, special tools can be managed quite easily in accordance with the BER (Block Exemption Regulation) list.
Based on standardized maintenance and repair procedures, the list specifies the tools to be used for each procedure. Once the tool number is entered on the Hänel control panel, the storage system automatically retrieves the required tool.
The tool management software also indicates whether a particular tool is being used by another service colleague. A complete tool inventory is available at any time.
