Efficiency meets innovation – Hänel presented a pioneering study at LogiMAT that integrates an autonomous transport system with the Hänel Lean-Lift®


The integration of an autonomous transport system (AGV robot) with the Hänel Lean-Lift® represents a progressive solution for significantly boosting efficiency and automation in intralogistics.

At LogiMAT 2024, Hänel presented the concept of a ground-breaking solution for automation in the area of intralogistics to an expert audience. This study strikingly demonstrates the potential of using autonomous transport systems (AGV robot) in combination with the Hänel Lean Lift®.

Such a combination allows efficiency to be increased in production environments

due to automated materials handling and flexible order picking, and enables dynamic storage management that can respond effectively to changing production requirements.

This presentation offered trade visitors a concrete vision of the potential of modern storage and transport systems.

In discussions with Hänel experts, visitors to the trade fair learned about the many advantages offered by combining an autonomous transport system and the Hänel Lean-Lift®.

Automation and efficiency: Automation of goods transport and handling in the warehouse leads to a reduction in manual tasks, fewer sources of error, and more efficient logistics processes in general.

Optimum use of space and safety: The Hänel Lean-Lift® optimizes the available storage space with its vertical storage structure and offers safe and secure storage. The autonomous transport system helps to ensure that goods are transported efficiently to and from the lift, reducing access times and enhancing the safety of storage operations.

Greater transparency: Combining intelligent storage solutions with transport systems that can navigate autonomously offers an improved overview and enhanced control of stock levels and material flows. Modern software solutions enable precise control and monitoring of all processes in real time.

Sustainability: The use of an energy-efficient transport system and the Hänel Lean-Lift®, which is optionally equipped with energy-saving technologies such as the Hänel EcoDrive®, to help reduce energy consumption and support sustainable logistics.

The synergy achieved by combining of an autonomous transport system and the Hänel Lean-Lift® provides for a future-centric intralogistics solution that not only optimizes storage and materials handling, but also forms the basis for further automation and efficiency improvement measures.
