Neat storage of firefighting equipment from the basement to the ceiling

Rosenbauer Schweiz AG in Oberglatt, near Zürich, is the leading supplier and outfitter of firefighting equipment in Switzerland.

The Hänel Lean-Lift® is integrated in the assembly area and provides the storage space needed by the ever-expanding service department. Direct access for assembly employees and riggers, plus short retrieval distances, make sure that processes are ergonomic and more efficient.

The vertical lift at Rosenbauer was designed so that the vertical height of the building could be used to full capacity, and that also includes the basement height of three meters.

More than 800 bins containing firefighting components and parts are stored on 50 Hänel multifunction containers.

Outfitters and assembly employees have direct individual access to the Hänel Lean-Lift®

Employees gain access using their ID cards for authentication on the PC terminal and can then request a specific container by means of the compact Hänel MP 12 N controller. Item retrieval is confirmed by scanning the barcode on the storage bin.

The order is completed when all components, brackets, materials, etc. needed for the specified job have been retrieved. The item inventory in the vertical lift is managed by the Magic ERP system and automatically updated in real time.

When items are stowed away in the Hänel Lean-Lift®, their height is measured first, then they are placed in the optimum slot so that no space is lost. The containers and storage boxes are dimensioned so that the available container space is used to best advantage.

Rosenbauer Schweiz AG has saved considerable space thanks to the Hänel intralogistics solution. Other reasons for selecting the Hänel Lean-Lift® included the advanced technology and extraordinary quality of Hänel products.
 When authenticated at the computer terminal, employees can see the specific storage map for the particular vehicle, equipment or system they are working on
'Delivering quality, innovation and good services is our own aspiration, and also what we expect from our suppliers. That’s why we have the Hänel Lean-Lift®.'
