Hanel Rotomat Storage > Vertical Carousel technology

Hanel Lean-Lift Storage > Vertical Lift technology

The automated "high-buy warehouse in a cabinet"

The lean lift from Hanel is both storage efficient and secure: at the center of the 'cabinet' is a computerized lift - called the 'extractor'. In front and behind it are the storage shelves, where the articles are stored in containers. The storage locations are accessed via electronic control, which stores or retrieves the container on request and presents the goods to the picker at the optimum ergonomic height.


  • Over 60% more storage capacity for warehouse storage
  • Fast storage and retrieval time
  • Optimum storage capacity, due to height-optimized storage
  • Storage and handling of bulky and heavy parts
  • Load-carrying capacity per container up to 1,000 kg

  • Material to operator, not operator to materials: this saves time
  • Built in Security
  • High efficiency and cost saving
