‘Hanel's price-performance ratio was the deciding factor!’

Eight Hänel Lean-Lifts® as a central store containing finished parts for final assembly

Company: Pister Kugelhähne GmbH

Location: 76461 Muggensturm

Employees: 220

Business: Industrial valves

Storage systems: 8 Hänel Lean-Lifts®

Goods stored: Finished parts for production

Since 1970 Pister Kugelhähne GmbH has been one of the most productive and innovative manufacturers of valves for all sectors of industry (high-pressure, shutoff and control valves as well as plate and solenoid valves).

8 Hanel Lean-Lifts® make up the backbone of the central store. Finished parts from the production department are buffered and then retrieved for final assembly on a job-by-job basis. Work orders are recorded and stored by barcode scanner.

The high-speed storage lifts are networked with the customer's own computer system and the Lean-Lifts® are networked with each other to enable rapid access to all the required parts with continuous inventory control.

The storage lifts at Pister were painted in the company's colors to give an optimal match with the existing corporate design.
