Since every business enterprise has specific storage needs, there is an extremely wide range of automated storage systems available today. Automated storage systems function according to the "goods to man" principle. These storage systems are driven by electric motors and guided by control units. The entire storage process is managed with innovative warehouse management software. Automated storage saves enormous amounts of time and space. Fewer manual tasks means that productivity can be boosted. Due to the ongoing development of automated storage systems, this kind of intralogistics solution is a viable option for business enterprises of all sizes.
Another advantage of automated storage systems is much better safety and protection for employees and products. Since the storage systems work almost independently, the employee only needs to communicate with the automated system to find a specific product, which is then brought to the employee automatically. Processes are highly structured, with virtually no walking back and forth to retrieve goods, and that mitigates the risk of work accidents. Very precise inventory control and top order quality are additional benefits delivered by automated storage systems. Thanks to the intelligent organization within an automated storage system, operators can immediately pinpoint the location of specific items. This dramatically improves intralogistics. The shelf configurations in automated storage systems reduce the risk of product loss because every item is allocated a specific position within the system. Software controls all access to stored items.
In addition to these benefits, the Hänel Lean-Lift® offers another key advantage: height-optimized storage. The Hänel Lean-Lift® can save up to 60% in space when compared with other types of automated storage.
