Productivity Inc.

Minneapolis, USA

When it comes to tools, the experts at Productivity Inc. can provide customized solutions for the metal-working industry. In addition to consulting, customer care, service and maintenance, Productivity Inc. delivers tools and tool holders to customers through-out North America. Fast shipping from the company’s site in Minneapolis is supported by three Hänel Lean-Lifts® that are used to store more than 10,000 items.

The Hänel vertical lifts are equipped with multifunction containers, making them ideal for automated small parts storage. Job orders are displayed directly on the HänelSoft® terminal and can be processed there.

The Hänel Lean-Lift® as a high-speed shipping system

The high-speed version of the Hänel Lean-Lift® quickly brings stored items to the retrieval area on request.

If the items needed for a particular order are located in various lift systems, picking performance can be boosted even more through parallel system operation. Thanks to digital compartment and sub-level indicators, even storage positions in very small configuration layout patterns can be identified easily. The combination of all these features ensures that orders are filled and shipped in record time – without errors.

Orders are filled directly opposite the system access points, where they are also packed for shipping.

Order confirmation is entered in the systems using barcode scanners. Another Hänel Lean-Lift® located in a different area of the warehouse is also integrated in the storage solution. Productivity Inc. quickly recognized the high quality of Hänel technology through the reliable performance delivered by the storage systems.

In fact, this company was so satisfied that it became a very successful Hänel channel partner itself!
