Southwest Solutions Group works directly with Hänel Storage Systems, a premier leader in vertical lift modules and automated vertical storage solutions.
Hänel’s automotive vertical lift modules and garage storage systems help automotive and truck dealers to save space so that they can store a larger parts inventory and make room for added customer services.
Vertical lift modules are automated storage and retrieval systems based on the principal of “goods to the user”. A vertical lift module stores inventory on pans. Pans can be equipped with a variety of bins and dividers for storing small parts, or with specialized holders for tools and larger items. Items are brought to the access point at the touch of a button or scan of a barcode. This increases speed and accuracy and helps to ensure that service procedures stay within their allotted time and that specialized tools are always accounted for an available.
When placing items into storage, the height of the items is automatically measured, and the vertical lift module determines the optimal storage location within the unit to store the pan. This eliminates wasted space between shelves and maximize available space at all times.
Advantages of Hänel’s Lean-Lift® Automotive Vertical Lift Modules:
1. Significant Space Savings
Storing vertically saves floor space and provides up to 60% more storage capacity, allowing users to either store more inventory in the same amount of space, or free up floor space for other, more profitable uses.
2. Streamline Inventory Control
Microprocessor-based controllers and advanced inventory management software will give better control over inventory for improved accuracy, fewer errors, and lower costs.
3. Improved Employee Productivity
Items are brought to the user, eliminating the time spent walking rows of shelving to locate and retrieve items, for greater speed and accuracy.
4. Increase Ergonomics
No more bending, ladder-climbing or walking long distances to search for and store parts or articles. The required items are brought automatically to the optimum ergonomic retrieval height.
5. Enhanced Security
Enclosed storage protects and secures inventory. Locking doors and user authorization requirements prevent unauthorized access.
